24 Merry Days – The Giveaway of The Season

December 22, 2012

The time has come! Remember when I posted a few weeks ago about a magical giveaway-juggernaut called 24 Merry Days? The time has come for The Proper Pinwheel to host the giveaway! I was so thrilled when Audrey of This Little Street asked me to be a part of something so fun! If you haven’t yet, check out the most recent giveaways over at Lottie Loves, Down and Out Chic, and Create Like Crazy. I’m super-duper stoked to share today’s giveaway with you. As you know, I’m hooked on stamps. I love to carve them. I love to buy them. And I most definitely love to win them. Danni of Oh, Hello Friend has an uh-MAZING shop filled to the brim with stamps and other goodies. And guess what? You can win $100 worth of stamps from her shop! What the what?!?

I’m absolutely 100% jealous of you guys. These are some quality stamps and I really want all of them. You can stamp tags, pillowcases, onesies, envelopes, gift wrap, and more! The possibilities are endless with stamps and they make gifts seem so much more personal. Don’t ya think?

The above are just a few of the stamps I plan to acquire. They’re perfect. Danni definitely knows what she’s doing and you can tell that each stamp is carved with care. The designs are sweet, modern, and quirky all rolled into one!

Spotlight: In Love With Brown Pigeon

April 26, 2012

Ok, you guys. I’m super excited about today’s spotlight. My new friend, Meagan, rocks. She has the sweetest little shop on Etsy, Brown Pigeon,  and is a stamp connoisseur. You know how addicted I am to stamps. Remember?

Now that the site got a makeover, I was in dire need of a new stamp. I did some research around the interwebs and stumbled upon Meagan’s shop. After emailing back and forth, I tricked her into carving a stamp for me! And here it is!

That packaging is ridiculous. I stared at the box for a good 20 minutes before getting enough courage to open it. I’m a sucker for packaging. Learn more about this awesome stamp and what Meagan’s offering to you after the jump. continue reading

Tut Tuesday: Personalize Yo’ Post-It

April 10, 2012

You know me. You know my obsession with stamps. I stamp everything. Heck. I’d stamp you right now if you were here.

This post is brought to you by my beloved iPhone, Charlotte. My computer recently broke down. I don’t have the dough to get a new one yet, but I wanted to share this post with you. Thank heavens for iPhone photo apps, right?!? Right.

I don’t know about you, but my desk, is covered in post-its. I use them for everything and I probably have every color. I thought it would be fun to make them a bit more shnazzy. They’re everywhere and they shouldn’t be so boring. All you need is a stamp (carve your own or use one that you purchased!), some ink, and post-its, of course!

Stamp away and then leave love notes all over the house for yourself.

**Happy Tuesday**


Tut Tuesday: DIY Paint Chip Valentines

February 14, 2012

Happy V-day everybody! Let’s make this short and sweet. If you lead a busy life and haven’t had the time to make some sweet cards for your sweets, there’s still time.

You will need: red paint chips, blank cards, heart-shaped craft punch, glue, alphabet stamps, and some ink.

Using your alphabet, stamp any romantic sayings or inside jokes you can think of. Punch out some hearts with your craft punch. Glue them on and you’re done! You can even use a regular hole punch to make some confetti. Fill your envelopes and ship them off to your love. 

How many pictures can one take of these cards, you ask? A bajillion.

And this is just the most perfect song for today.

**Happy Valentine’s Day**
