Aubrey Plays {review+giveaway}






I can't wait to introduce AubreyPlays, a delightful shop full of unique handmade goodies, with special touches just for you!




How many of you are carrying around a new reader?  Kindle, iPad, Nook {by the way, which do YOU prefer? :)} whatever it may be, Aubrey from AubreyPlays whips up a sweet little carrying case for you!  Her hand embroidery is amazing!


Aubrey, whom I just adore, is so talented and so creative!  She is really the queen of turning something ordinary into beautiful!



Who can say no to hand embroidery?  Not me! :)  I love checking out Aubrey's blog where she features hot off the press AubreyPlays custom orders and new ideas!  And this is brilliant:  she is taking your old sweet baby clothes, the ones you can't bear to part with, and turning them into handbags, cases, clutches... you name it!  Such a sweet idea!! 


Don't think AubreyPlays is just for the older crowd either!  It has great designs for a special little kiddo in your life too!  Again, if you have an inspiration, just let Aubrey know!  She also posts ideas and custom orders on her Facebook fan page, so be sure to head over and like her, for goodness sake!


Her newest creation, the Kona!

Now, when we chatted about what I would review, I mentioned that I absolutely adored her pillows and hand painted/embroidered work... and my middle name is Joy, so I'm always drawn to that beautiful word!  Well, she totally delivered!  She made me my own special Joy Birdie pillow!





"Find JOY in the little things."

Amen sister!  And sweet Aubrey is sharing the love with all of you!  A $20 Gift Certificate to AubreyPlays to choose whatever your heart desires!!

  55. If I were so lucky to win, I'd definitely spend on the "Kona Dainty Dress Handbag"!! - That is soo creative and awesome that Aubrey would breathe new (and newly functional) life into a sweet old dress I wore as a lil girl :)
    Thanks so much for this chance!
