A Crown, A Sale and A Canvas Giveaway!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a busy but really lovely day here. First we had a wonderful meal at the Williamsburg Lodge down in Colonial Williamsburg with the team (the cupcake station where you got to pick your frosting and toppings and the hot cocoa were my favorites...the hot cocoa was heavenly!), then we had fun little birthday party for Lillie in the afternoon and after that my mom cooked us a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Needless to say, I am stuffed! And yes, I know, my poor mom had to travel and then cook the whole meal, but if you ever tasted something I cooked you would understand why my mom did the cooking. =)

I haven't been taking many pictures lately, but I made up for that yesterday and took tons and tons! I will share some of them on here soon. Maybe this weekend if I get a chance.  In the meantime here are a few of Lillie wearing the crown we made for her earlier this week using a mix of a tutorial by my friend Jessica and one by Bethany of the Betty. When I first saw the tutorial on the Joyfolie blog I stored away in my mind that it would be fun to make for Lillie's birthday. I showed Lillie the picture of Jessica's daughter Mia wearing it and Lillie thought it was beautiful but asked if we could make hers pink. I was planning on keeping it cream but we added some pink glitter instead. It was super easy. I just painted on coat of mod podge on the trim and then we sprinkled the glitter on and used the blow drier and then added three more cots of mod podge. After that we mod-podged it shut into a circle and let it dry overnight and it was ready to be worn the next morning!





And now that Thanksgiving is over, Black Friday is officially here! To be honest, I don't know that I have ever gone shopping on Black Friday. I am not brave enough to venture out. Haha! Although, I admire everyone who does make it out to snatch up all those deals, I have to admit I have become much more of an internet shopper. So, for all of you out there that like to purchase gifts online we are offering a big sale on all of our women's and children's thermals and sweatshirts! 



 I recently received this beautiful canvas from MyPix2Canvas. I actually picked this one out as a gift for my parents but snapped a few shots of it before giving it to them as an early Christmas gift. I love the idea of having a seasonal photo like this on a canvas to add to our Christmas decor. 
And guess what? 
MyPix2Canvas is giving one away to one of our lucky readers!

  118. Let me get this in there before I ramble a little... I'd LOVE to win the canvas and have a cd full of photos I could choose from that we recently had taken of our little fella. :)

    Now, the rambling. I've not commented in quite some time but I've been stalking Dear Lillie just as much as always and love every single thing you post. The kids are simply stunning and sweet. The house and projects are mind blowing. And you are just as busy bee famous with your new items as ever. I have made some of the changes in my living room that you were so kind to email me about and I'm still working on some. I'm still so thankful for your help and will email you photos once it's all complete. Holidays, a career move/job change, and mamahood is taking all of my time but I'll get there. :)

    Hope the little one feels better SOON!

    Take care,
    Amanda
