A New Day, A New Sponsor, A New Giveaway



Can you believe the talent over on my left sidebar? My Sponsors over there each have their own unique talent. It’s incredible. Go check them out.


Would you like to meet the newest? You’ll fall in love with all of her items…….I just know it.



Alaina from White Satin Ribbon is a full time teacher who loves to create! And she’s got a great eye for color. ………And a shop full of useful items.


Like her burpie sets that are just perfect for keeping your shoulder clean and are handy for any sort of mess created by your little Love.


She also has a stylish sling bag that she re-purposed from a cotton skirt that just happens to look fabulous as a bag. Isn’t it a knock out? The fabric is perfect for this bag.


Oh, and you’re going to love this. Alaina has a bad eggs section where you can purchase items that have a minor flaw, at a great discount. What a catchy concept. A deal for both. Love that Alaina!


She also has a blog that she updates with all of her latest projects and such. Such a fun peek into her creative mind. Take a peek here.


And Alaina has decided to do a giveaway right here on Make It and Love It. She wants to give one of you, an adorable set of 2 baby washies, that can also be found here. These little washies are cotton on one side and microfiber on the other.

So soft. So perfect.
