The Countdown Begins

This morning hubby mentioned how this time last year he was on full baby alert. In fifteen days Ivy will be ONE YEAR OLD.

How time flies by.

It's been a good fly by though.

I thought I'd do something fun to ring in her very first birthday, so for the next 15 days I'm going to post some fun giveaways. Starting now!

This first day's giveaway is perfect because I call Ivy my little monkey, and she never goes anywhere without her lovey monkey stuffed animal.

Space Monkey is the new baby of my very long-time bloggy friend Laura Seymour. Space Monkey's all-original affordable artwork on canvas and archival paper was created by Dan Peeler & Charlie Rose, artists for Sesame St, PBS, & Disney.

Not just for the kids' room or nursery- choose from funky and fun to beautiful and unique like the Close Friends: Butterfly that I could totally see in my kitchen.



Leave a comment here telling me which one is your favorite and you can win the print of your choice!

I'll choose one winner at random on the night of Ivy's birthday, September 15. Winner will be contacted via email (so please include it when you fill out the secure comment form) and I'll also announce all winners here by September 16.

Just can't wait until then? Use coupon code BABYSTEPH at checkout to save 25% off your order.

  1. Yay for giveaways! What a great way to celebrate Ivy's big day!

    I'm torn between Close Friends: Butterfly and Stitchkins: Ella. Just can't decide which is my favorite. So I have two favorites. :)

  2. Yay!

    Happy birthday sweet Ivy!

    I think if I had to choose one other than Butterfly then it would be David the Shepard. I could see this hanging on my son's wall as we transition him into his big boy room.

  3. My favorite is Miriam Watching Moses print. I think it's perfect for another little baby's room, who is being watched over & taken care of.

  4. My favorite is the Space Monkey, but Wog would pick The Joker. He's corny like that!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love the butterfly! Yay for Ivy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm gonna have to go with Franken-Tiki. I'd definitely hang him in my office!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I couldn't decide between all the cute African animal prints - we have a 'curtain' (shhhh, don't tell anyone that it's actually a fabric shower curtain) in the playroom and the elephant stitch on print would look adorable in there.

    It seems like only yesterday you were munching on celery before she was born....

  8. I can't believe Ivy is going to be 1 so soon.

    I love the Wildflowers on canvas.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have to say....Butterfly is my favorite. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm torn! I'd probably pick SpaceMonkey if I were choosing for myself. However, my husband is way into Superman (as are my 6 boys) and even has a Superman tattoo so I'd probably go with SuperGeorge and gift it to my husband.
    By the way -
    I'm new to reading your blog and I have to say I love it. Your passion for your children is so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  11. How time flies when you're having fun!

    My favorite is Jungle Twilight 3. What pretty colors!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My daughter would love the wildflowers on canvas, thanks!

    I cannot believe Ivy is almost one - that means I have been reading your blog for over a year already. wow. Happy Birthday to Ivy!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The butterfly one is my favorite too, though the turtle is pretty cute also!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love the Close Friends: Butterfly the best, though the jungle twilight series is great too.

    Happy early birthday Ivy!

  16. Well, I like the wildflowers on canvas but DH would completely pick Birdman. Chloe is in love with giraffes so that would be her pick or perhaps space monkey or the peeking duck for John-John.

    Which to choose? LOL

    John-John turned one in August too....exciting, a little sad and amazing that the time went by so fast!!

  62. Ah yes, time does fly. School is starting soon and we went to the faculty party tonight. Exactly one year ago was the very first time we left Sierra with a babysitter. The same babysitter was here for a repeat performance tonight, but the baby was oh-so-different.

    I love the animals the best. I'm stuck between the owl, the elephant, and the gecko.
