Day 6 of the Hen House Coop’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway

Happy Monday, kitties!! Today we’re kickin off the SECOND week of the giveaway over at the Hen House Coop! I can’t believe how quickly that first week flew by. It was so awesome to see how many people entered and it’s exciting to see how much support we’ve gotten. On behalf of the rest of the chickies at the Coop, we thank you all!!

Today’s giveaway is pretty awesome. Our friend, Courtney from Sudsational, is giving away a great holiday package — 2 holiday soaps and a holiday sugar scrub. This would be a perfect gift for your loved one, mom, sister, aunt, niece, friend, or your friend at the Grey Tabby! No? Well, you can’t blame me for trying!

Now onto some Grey Tabby news… Yesterday, I set up shop at a local yoga studio (Stella Luna Yoga) for a Handcrafted Artist Holiday Boutique. The turn-out was great and I had a blast! I’m tellin’ ya, I could really get used to craft fairs. I’ve always loved shopping at them but I love setting up my goodies even more! I’m hoping to do a few more shows so keep checking back for updates!

Hey precious little kitties! It’s been a few days since I’ve blogged but that’s only because I’ve been a busy crazy cat lady lately. Lots of great stuff is happening here over at the Grey Tabby and I’m excited to share it all with you! So the next few days, I’ll be poppin’ in, letting you know what’s goin’ on.

For now, I have an exciting giveaway to share! My good friend Natalie at & I are hosting a Day of the Dead giveaway on Instagram!

Hurry and check it out! The contest ends on November 7th. Have fun and good luck!


Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Er… I mean, Kitty Mug!

Yep, that’s right! We have a winner, ladies & gents. No chicken dinner, though, but I can’t say the word “winner” without yellin’ “chicken dinner!” right after. I digress…

Remember that oh-so adorable kitty cat mug giveaway I was hosting? Well, I randomly chose a winner (thanks to a random number generator) and the winner is…

Cute Kitty Cat Mug - Perfect with Fall Colors!

Lindsay from Graphic Cupcake! It seems like the internet random number generator gods knew that it was fate because she calls herself “THE crazycatlady.” PERFECT! :D Lindsay, just send me an email with your mailing address and I’ll get the mug to its new home for ya.

A huge thanks to everyone who entered! You guys are the best! xoxo


Free Kitchen Printables – Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

Happy Monday! No, I’m not normally super happy & giddy on Mondays but today, I feel a little more sunshine-y because I have some goodies for you.

Last week, I was working on some wedding goodies for my wedding shop on Etsy. I was making an “Eat, Drink, and Be Married” design for a client and a light bulb went off. I should make something like this for our home! So, I decided to make some prints for our kitchen :)

Freebie Friday – To My Husband: A Printable Love Note Card

Happy Friday! The past couple of days have been oh-so-fun because Wednesday was my hubby’s 30th birthday. Yep, the big 3-0! We’ve had loads of fun so far and a lot more fun planned for this weekend. But I’ll post more about that next week so keep your eyes open for pics!

Now, let’s get to why I named this post Freebie Friday. It’s because I have a freebie for you guys! I made a birthday card for my husband and posted it on Instagram. My caption was “Handmade cards rule and store-bought cards drool.” That’s the truth, right?? :) Anyway, when I posted the card on Instagram, I got quite a response from my followers. So I decided to make it available as a free printable!

The card is blank on the inside so you can give it to your hubby for his birthday, your anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or you can stick it in his lunch box on a plain ol’ Tuesday before he leaves for work. You can download it here:
