GIVEAWAY - Everyday Joyful Handmade Chic Gifts and Favors (Item of Choice)! (CLOSED)


Everyday Joyful is an Etsy shop created by Jenn Hsu who is a mother to a feisty yet affectionate toddler girl.  She believes "it's the simplicity of everyday life that brings joy - a handwritten note, a lit candle while reading a book, and the peals of childhood laughter."  Everyday Joyful offers one-of-a-kind handmade items and gifts that complete the details of a room, home, or special event.  She hopes her handmade items bring a little joy and warmth to your everyday life!



The hand-poured Soy Wax Floral Teacup Candle (Unscented) adds a warm and romantic touch to a room.  The teacup is 4" tall and 3.5" in diameter (not including the handle) with an approximate burn time of 40+ hours.  I love how the teacup has a feminine touch with a scalloped rim.  FYI, soy wax is eco-friendly, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic and has a cleaner, longer burn time than paraffin wax.  Once the the candle has completed its burn cycle, you may enjoy a brewed coffee or tea in the washed teacup - dishwasher and microwave safe.  

Everyday Joyful is definitely my go-to shop for unique and chic handmade gifts and favors (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

WIN IT!  Everyday Joyful has generously offered an item of your choice to a lucky HSUper Parents reader!

GIVEAWAY - 25 Tiny Prints Party Invitations! (CLOSED)



Tiny Prints offer high quality products like chic photo cards, holiday cards, invitations, announcements, personalized stationary, gifts, and photo books.  The company first started out specializing in unique baby stationary and has now boomed into an online retailer of stylish designs for every occasion, including wedding and business stationary with the launch of Wedding Paper Divas and Tiny Prints Corporate.  Tiny Prints offers a large selection of party invitations to select from (view here), including baby shower, birthday party, religious, summer party, anniversary party, wedding, graduation, holiday party, and business event invitations.  Each card is reviewed by their professional team of designers and etiquette experts.


Summer is the time for parks, beaches and BBQ under the sizzling sun!  During the beginning of the summer, when the heat is still bearable, I like to take Baby Hsu to a local park and enjoy a family picnic on the grass.  I look for parks where it has adequate shade, which makes a total difference when it gets hot.  Some of the parks have a sand area and that's when I bring out his sand toys and trucks (which I keep in my trunk).  Other parks have a water play area, which is perfect for kids to run through the water in their bathing suits.  Towards the end of the summer, I find it more relaxing to take Baby Hsu to the beach with the ocean breeze.  BBQs are more of Hubby's expertise.  He gets a kick out of grilling juicy pieces of steak and sausages on the grill.  My number one request is for grilled corn, buttered with spices and lime juice - yummy!  The Cookout Collage would be an invitation I would send out if I were to host a BBQ or cookout party. But, if I were to host any type of a summer party, I would definitely use the Citrus Impression invitation.

Tiny Prints always has what I need to send out the perfect party invitation (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

WIN IT!  Tiny Prints has generously offered 25 Party Invitations to a lucky HSUper Parents reader!
