Featured Etsy Shop: Scissor Mill

We were so in love with these customizable beer mugs for our Father’s Day giveaway that we had to write Sara from Scissor Mill and see if she’d donate one.  Lucky for our giveaway winner, Sara agreed and a custom mug is now going to one lucky dad ;)

If you missed out on the giveaway don’t worry you can still get your custom pieces from Scissor Mill for all sorts of other occasions!  For example, if you’re having a wedding this summer why don’t you get your groomsmen personalized beer mugs:

Customize beer mugs with the names of your groomsmen.

Or if you’re attending a baby shower and want to spoil the mom or dad instead of getting yetanother burp cloth that they may not even use why not go for these “mom & dad” glasses (or even celebrating a baby coming into the world):

So cute for parents-to-be!

This keep calm and mother on wine glass would also be perfect for your moms birthday or a mother-to-be:

We got so many comments on this for the Father’s Day giveaway as a favorite item from Scissor Mill, I just had to include it!

I kinda love these customized baking dishes (I will never lose another casserole dish at a potluck again and since my large casserole dish has gone MIA since the last potluck I attended I’m seriously considering this cute owl):

No one will be mistaking this casserole for their own!

Sara designs and applies the etching by hand so each piece is really unique!  We hope you go and support her shop for your next unique occasion too!

Featured Etsy Shop: Pop Tag

You know what we love about the Pop Tag etsy shop?  He found something he’s good and and just stuck with a couple of successful products (the business model we’re striving for too!).  Nate’s very favorite item from this years Father’s Day giveaway was this cool personalized bottle opener key chain.  In Nate’s words, “that’s f***ing cool”.  Um . . . yeah, we agree!

Order the traditional “We love dad” or customize it with some inside joke that only you and your dad get!

It can read, “WORLDS BEST DAD” or ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE INSTEAD – a name, quote, sports team, a lyric, etc.  That’s the thing that’s most fun – you can choose some quote that is special to you and your dad/husband.

Plus, you can choose any of these colored rubber bumpers to go with it.

We opted for the cool black one for our giveaway. (Red, Black, Blue, Pink, or Purple).

Since Nate and I are planning a wedding, I kinda loved the idea of these bottle openers for a wedding gift with some quote that’s special to the bride and groom (even just “his” and “hers”).  This would be perfect for our camping wedding BBQ!  Plus as a necklace I’d never loose it the whole night ;)

Stamped Bottle Opener Necklace Pair

Ryan is super speedy at shipping too!  We had our giveaway bottle opener at the house within two days so there’s still plenty of time to go to Pop Tag and order one for Father’s Day!

Featured Esty Shop: Revolution46

With Father’s Day around the corner if you’re still scratching your head over the perfect gift for dad maybe you should go and check out REVOLUTION46.  Their t-shirts have a fabulous retro hipster vibe happening!  And they’ve graciously donated the above t-shirt for all those super dads in your life for our Beer & BBQ Father’s Day Giveaway (of course if you don’t win you can always just purchase one of these gems yourself).  While you’re shopping for dad you may want to check out some of their other creations – I’m a fan of the brother sets (even though I personally only have one girl).

Like these Retro Robot Big Bro & Lil’ Bro Shirts:

Love the mohawk!! These kids are hipster with a capital H!

Or the Big Brother Vintage Airplane Shirt:

Wright Brother’s eat your heart out :)

But if you were attracted to this post because of the cool super hero logo from the Father’s Day giveaway then never fear . . . other super hero shirts are here (oh no, even I recognize that as being a horrible reference . . . fail?).

These batman shirts would be so cool for a super hero themed birthday party!

If you’re in love with the Father’s Day Super Hero shirt but want it for your little man – no prob, they have that too:

I particularly like the ones with the numbers in the middle for how hold your little one is. So cute and what a good way to do a yearly photo op for a boy :)

Joe and Frannie run the shop and they’ve told us, “Everyday is a new journey when you are creating! We believe our designs are a source of immediate delight and lasting pleasure.”  We think these gifts will give so many fathers a super happy Father’s Day and heartily agree that giftees will look back fondly on receiving one of Joe and Frannie’s unique shirts.  We hope you go support custom and hand made through visiting their shop!

Featured Etsy Shop: Casanees

Plaid suspenders by Casanees

Remember these adorable suspenders on Jax last Friday from Casanees?  We’re in love with them!  I actually think we’re debating having Jax wear them for my wedding in August (we’re doing a camping wedding with florals for girls and plaids for the boys! Well we’ll see it’s actually planned as an “eclectic” wedding so I picture things getting thrown in last minute).  Her stuff is perfect for weddings because she can custom make any of her patterns (hats, suspenders, dresses, and ties) for your ring bearers and flower girls.

She has the cutest ties (and bowties as well) that you can coordinate for your events or family photos!

Cassandra is so talented and hilarious to boot!  When we asked her what type of personal information we could include about her in this post she said,  “basically, I’m Super Mom to my two little kidlets, a boy and a girl. Lately I play the part of Captain Hook, because the good guys are taken and they want a villain… ”  LOL.  I just fell in love with this response!  I can just imagine Cassandra whipping up Peter Pan and Tinkerbell costumes for her kids as well as beautiful (matching) clothes sets!  Like these from her store:

Perfect for family/kiddo photos!

Casandra tells us, “I LOVE sewing for my kids and creating what their imagination can dream up. Nothings better than having a unique item of clothing that no one else on the playground has!”  We’d have to agree and I think this cap is the next unique item we’ll have to purchase for Jax (after all summer is coming and in that Arizona sun we’re going to have to keep him covered!):

Newsboy cap – so cute!

So if you want a unique item for your kiddos too (or for your wedding!)  hope on over to Casanees and support handmade!
