The second giveaway is called “Flowers for Mom” & it is hosted by @PrettyPrintShop. This giveaway will be a little different from most giveaways – instead of entering yourself to win, you nominate a mom that you think deserves some happy mail, and she will be entered to win all of the amazing prizes pictured above! All you have to do: 1. Repost this photo and tag #flowersformom and tag @prettyprintshop. In your caption also let us know who you are nominating & why! 2. Giveaway will run from April 1st to April 15th. 3. Multiple entries: Please do not enter the same mom multiple times. If you would like to enter different moms, please make a different post for each one. 4. Private users: Make sure to tag @prettyprintshop in the PHOTO, NOT in the caption. If you do not do it this way we will not be able to see your entry and your nomination will not be entered. 5. At the end 5 deserving moms will be selected by @prettyprintshop and the additional 9 contributing shop owners in the giveaway will vote on the winner. Here is a picture of the felt flower bouquet one lucky momma will receive:

DIY: Simple Shamrock Garland – St. Patrick’s Day fun!

Hi friends! St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner! Even though we don’t really celebrate St. Patty’s day, green is my most favorite color (ever) & I’m always up for something fun! I don’t have much of St. Patty’s day deco, so I decided to create a super cute and easy shamrock garland to share with you guys. Because who doesn’t love garlands?! ;) Here’s what to do:

(click on images to enlarge)

Materials Needed: Green Pom Poms, Twine/String, Felt square, needle, hot glue or regular glue, scissors.

Step 1: Gather your materials.
Step 2: Pair your poms in groups of three. Once you have them grouped up, use your hot glue gun to glue them together. To make it more kid-friendly, use regular glue if you want to try this with your kiddo. Using your scissors, cut felt strips.
Step 3: Apply the felt strips to the back of the poms. I didn’t cut a specific size of the felt strips, I just eyed it according to the size of my poms. Be sure to measure accordingly.
Step 4: Thread your needle with your string/twine and pierce the needle through the top of the pom pom & hang.

Voila! Quick & easy St. Patty’s day garland fun! ☘ For extra luck, you can wrap the garland around your head just like Rob did in the picture below. LOL! I hope you guys have fun making this cutie & I’d love to see any photos. Tag us @TheTwiddles / #TheTwiddles on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook.

“A portrait of my family, once a week, every week in 2014.”

Now that the weather is AMAZING, we get to go out and explore everyday! We had another crazy week (again) with work, school, etc. But, I think the weekends have been our little escape lately. The escape from reality that was ever so magical this past weekend! ♥ We went to a lovely lake called Falls lake near Raleigh/Durham and boy was this evening beautiful. The sun was perfect and gleamed beautifully on the water, the wind was blowing an amazing breeze that was dearly missed all winter, and the climate was just perfect enough for a small blanket to cuddle in a sneak in a nap on the lake. These are the days that make me realize just how blessed we are to have each other and how amazing the world we live in truly is. Hope you guys have a great week! ♥

8 & 9 / 52


“A portrait of my family, once a week, every week in 2014.”

Hello my dear friends! Sorry I have neglected you these past few weeks… I’ve had one of the busiest few weeks (ever) for TheTwiddles… Which I’m grateful for! ♥ :) I wanted to thank all of you whom participated in the auction the other day held by @shoploveyoudeerly on Instagram. It was a huge success and it made me feel completely overwhelmed with the response on my items! You guys are great! :)

I did miss posting week 8/52 on here but I did have the photo… & I figured I combined 8 & 9 together so I don’t clutter your newsfeed. :)

Week 8: Now that the weather is getting warmer, we can finally take little Squishy & Squirt out to play! We normally keep them cozy in their warm tanks during winter time and only take them out when we need to bathe them or clean their tank. The kiddos love these baby turtles so much! & I like that it gives them a sense of responsibility by being able to take care of them and look after them.

Week 9: Weather was beyond beautiful this past week! Even though we did spend most of our days indoors due to loads of workload (at home & for work) we still managed to get out and enjoy natures beauty. The picture above was taken at a state park near our house called, Umstead Park & boy was that evening beautiful! No words, just pure beauty!

Although I haven’t been bloggin much, I have been pretty busy creating and posting like crazy on my Instagram. So, be sure to follow me on Instagram to stay up to date. Hope you lovelies have a wonderful week! ♥
