handmade, homemade (+ giveaway)

handmade wedding

You are all probably used to my {Etsy finds} posts on Facebook by now, but this one was so major I had to write a post about it. Donda Lee’s Etsy store has cute jewelry, adorable paper goods, and the sweetest gift tags you’ll come across. There is so much in her store that is perfect for weddings (especially if you like mason jars) that you’ve just got to check it out. I purchased 6 hand-stamped mason jar thank you postcards and this is how it went down:

Package arrives (very quickly I might add, usually things take AGES to get to Hawaii) and I open it to find…

chevron bag

I’m a sucker for cute packaging, especially if it involves chevron… so let’s continue….

thank you postcards

Inside was pure cuteness! There were even some sample gift tags and an adorable fawn (Donda Lee’s logo) thrown in.

All in all, it was one of the more fun Etsy purchases I’ve made. And what, you might ask, did I do after taking pictures of all the cuteness? I hopped right back online and ordered more!Β And this time, Donda Lee’s included a little something extra special just for you: 25 yellow striped paper straws! And we’re giving them away!

All you have to do to win these cute straws is take a peek at her store, find something you love, and then come back here and leave a comment about it. That’s it!

  6. I recently caved and created an account for Etsy this past June. Thanks to Burnett’s Boards, I found DondaLee’s Etsy site and absolutely fell in love with the handmade, high-quality vintage typewriter and anchor gift tags. Will definitely “favorite” this great artist and contact the artist next time I throw a party!!

  7. First off I have to say that I love your inspiration board πŸ™‚ Secondly I remember stumbling upon Donda Lee’s etsy shop recently and fell in love with it and her adorable shop header. I’m loving each of the hand stamped gift tags in her shop {can’t pick just one favorite of them}. And, I of course, love the striped straws that you are giving away.

  8. I don’t know if I like the Hand Stamped Kitten Gift Tags or those darn Ball Jar Thank You Cards more!
