Parisian Inspired Giveaway!!!

A few weeks back I shared with you the inspiration for the latest flower hair accessories on the Karis Kisses blog. My inspiration was a wonderful and quick spur of the moment photo that I took of a flower stand that I saw while in Paris a few years back. I have this photo framed in my home and whenever I pass it I think fondly about what a beautiful moment is was and how it has continued to inspire me creatively.

So...what better way to share in the crafty love but with a GIVEAWAY valued at $35.00!!!

The Parisian Inspired Giveaway includes the inspirational 5" X 7" Parisian floral stand photo matted in a white matte with white frame...a very clean and crisp look, along with three 3-3/4" diameter Gerber daisy hair clips in hot pink, yellow and orange with crystal center...a perfect set of floral accessories for any infant, toddler or little girl.

I was so excited because she had told me in an earlier email that it would be one of her BEAUTIFUL hand stamped jewelry creations; and then she attached a link that made me smile...because it celebrates my two little ones, Karis and Tyler.

Kristen has created beautiful pieces of jewelery; including necklaces, earring, paper products and her upcoming children's line...take a peak at her website and be sure to become a follower of her blog where she talks about crafting, her Etsy obsession and motherhood!
