Hello & Happy Monday everyone. Wasn’t this weekend the best? We spent so much time outdoors soaking in the sun while doing yard work and prepping for summer. We also snuck in some crafting, time with friends, a few meals out, a 5k, some shopping and a few good naps. It was an incredible two days that I am so thankful for.
Today I am proud to share with you an event I hosted to celebrate some very creative Mom’s right here in Cleveland. Sponsored by Pat Catan’s the baby brunch was held at the magical Borrow Rentals; a space filled with vintage furniture and one-of-a-kind party pieces.
Happy Tuesday Cleveland! Hope your week has been both productive and festive. Personally, my weekend flewby prepping for old St. Nick as well as wrapping up some fun work projects before our holiday break. I don’t mind being busy this time of year, everyone seems to have a bit more spring to their step perhaps it’s because we all know we get a bit of a break once Christmas rolls along.
Are you guys enjoying all of the holiday giveaways? It’s been so fun engaging with many of you about all the prizes. It is truly the most wonderful time of the year. Congrats to Melanie Bauer (@melaniemakes) for winning the Urban Farmer, dinner for two, holiday giveaway! Congrats @Sarahberridge, she won the @PatCatans gift certificate.

Tis the season for holiday crafting, decorating the home, making candy and cookies and don’t forget to frame up all your little kiddo’s school art for Grandma…it’s time to get to Pat Catan’s.
This year I spent some “quality-time” in the glitter and little woodland creatures aisle finding just the perfect sparkly additions to my holiday table and tree decorations. Pat Catan’s seriously had so much holiday swag, it was hard to decide just how much I could responsibly decorate with and still have room to navigate around our home.
Not only is “Catan’s” a crafting destination, it’s a cookie, cakes and candy making supply mecca. I’m headed to a cookie making afternoon this weekend and stopped by for cute cookie-swapping bags and little holiday sprinkles for the perfect sugar cookie masterpiece.
Looking for some last minute gifts or stocking stuffers for the little ones? They have a new section in their stores called “Great Create” that offers many creative activities and make & take projects for the little elf in your life.
Love exploring Pat Catan’s for the perfect sheet of paper to wrap your honey’s gift with (image above)? Look no further. One lucky winner will win a $50 gift certificate to indulge in new art supplies, last minute gifts, candy making molds, hot glue guns…it’s up to you and your creativity!
To enter to win tweet me and tell me what you might buy if you had that $50 gift certificate! “@iheartclev if I won the @PatCatans cash I would buy…!” Good luck, winner to be drawn by Monday the 22nd.
Oh and I almost forgot, CONGRATS to Brenda from @TheHippieHut who won the Frozen Sing-A-Long DVD. Give her a few weeks and she will know every word to every song in the film…sing away Brenda!
