Arcoiris {review+giveaway}



I am so excited to introduce Arcoiris, the sweetest shop full of fun fabrics and color combined with gorgeous handmade goodies to pack a little pizazz in your life!


Pop quiz:  What does Arcoiris mean in Spanish?  Well, when you find out, you know that this name is absolutely perfect for the shop!  The variety and mix of colors and original designs are not only cute, but entirely mood-boosting and inspiring!



Answer:  Rainbow!  How adorable are these owls?  Lelanie, the incredibly creative woman behind the Arcoiris, is seriously crafty to the core.  Spend a little time on her blog, To Sew With Love, and you'll totally see what I mean!  She offers up great tutorials, fabulous peeks into her creating, giveaways, a Crafty Saturday linkup, and tons of super etsy finds as she shops around!!


Plus, when checking out To Sew With Love, you'll find a blog shop with tons of new pieces (like these headbands!!) Arcoiris also has a big cartel shop, which, if you haven't checked out big cartel, get on over there and peek around!  Such a neat site!!  I wasn't kidding when I said Lelanie was talented!  It runs in the family too!!  You'll see her sister Laarnie posting on TSWL too!  Lelanie, born in the Phillippines, now lives in Spain with her family, brings a great mix of culture to her creations! 



Lelanie spoiled us completely.  She sent along, not one, but two skirts {with an adorable pillow dress I ordered in SUCH a cute fabric!!!} for the girlies to try out.  Arcoiris sends matching clips or hair accessories with many of their clothing, and my girls just love to clip themselves!  {my 3 year old gave herself a little chop last week!!  back to baby bangs :)}



And the sister skirts are absolutely perfect!  Coordinating, perfect size, and extremely well made!  It's all about the details, and Lelanie provides them to make these special!  Even more, she created a tutorial on To Sew With Love just for these special little skirts!  {she says 15 minutes, but it might take longer for me!}


I love Lelanie's style and sweet personality!  She is so great to work with and truly loves to support the entire community of handmade!  Custom order?  Just ask her!!  Such a gem!!


AND, she's offering a lucky reader a $15 Gift Certificate to Arcoiris!!  Yay!!
