This is one of my favorite giveaway's this year and yes I'm a bit biased because these people are my family, but I also LOVE everything that they do.  Everything.  Not kidding.

This is Aaron's brother, Tim, and his wife Joanna and we recently saw them over Thanksgiving when we drove to TN.  They have two girls, Madisyn, who is a senior in high school, and Zuri, who is in preschool.  They will send a child off to college next Fall and send one to kindergarten.  I love it!


When I knew I wanted to give away items that were homemade I immediately thought of my sister in law and all her amazing products.  What I didn't know was that Madisyn would also donate something to give away to you guys!  Madisyn takes after her momma and is crafty as well and has been making scarves that are beautiful.  Over the Thanksgiving break she was busy making scarves for Christmas gifts and so I'm honored to give one away to you guys!  If you are looking for a great gift for that woman in your life that loves scarves, please consider buying from Madisyn!

So, here's the fun part ….. here's what IVEY EXPRESSIONS is giving away:

Because I love so much of what Ivey Expressions does I'm going to show you some of my other favorite things that she has up for sale right now.  All of these photos are taken from her Facebook page where she lists all things that are ready to ship.  Please consider doing some of your Christmas shopping here.  Homemade gifts are the best!

This is my favorite thing ever because I love mine so much.  This is her wrist wallet and it's exactly that, a wallet that you can wear on your wrist.  I have used this wallet for years and over Thanksgiving she just gave me a new one!  The thing that I love the most about this wallet is that it also is super easy to use as a clutch when you just want to carry it out at night.  Love this so much!

I also just found out that I have a purse named after me.  YES!  This purse is the JAMIE LEIGH purse.  How much fun is that?!?!  I think I for sure need one of these if it's named after me!

This is one of her favorite things she's making right now and they are selling like crazy.  It's her hand clutch and how cute is that little strap that you hold your purse with?  Love it so much!


One thing that I think is super fun are the group purses that she does for wedding parties! How fun would this be to gift your bridesmaids with for your wedding day!  Matching clutches to use on your special day!  Love this so much!
