THRIVE is ONE!
A year ago my first post went up and since that day, all of you who’ve stopped by, commented and shared your stories have helped make this birthday possible. So I say presents all around and lots of celebrating! And while we’re at it, let’s take a whole week to party with new posts and projects everyday until the giveaway closes Friday, October 21st.
You grab the cupcakes, I’ll grab the gifts, okay?
1 pair of gorgeous earrings from Paul Street Shop
Dora from PSS writes, “Paul Street Shop is a brand new adventure for me. I love creating and for me the process is more important than actually using my designs. That's why my shop was born. I offer a variety of quality handmade items, including one of a kind jewelry, home decor, house wares, sewing patterns, hand painted yarn, hand stamped fabric and more! Check back often, since the inventory changes frequently and new items are being added weekly.”
You can also check out the fun projects blog Dora contributes to, Show Tell Share, here.
Thanks Dora! I think I need every pair of earrings in your shop!

Custom Mohawk Hat from Handcrafted by Natasha Brenchley
These hats are freakin’ awesome! The winner gets one of these bad boys knitted just for them in their choice of size and colors. You will LOVE yours! I found Natasha’s shop last year and my kids adore their mohawk hat. And don’t think this is just for boys … my three year old daughter steals this from her brother all the time. See?
I get compliments on this hat all the time in the store—total conversation starter. :)
You can score Natasha’s awesome hats as well as the other hand-knit goodness like gloves, scarves and wraps for 25% off this week with code THRIVE01. (One coupon code per person.)
Thanks Natasha! Happy Shopping HERE.

Upcycled Denim Purse from Artfully Caroline
Once again Caroline from Artfully Caroline came up with yet another amazing purse design using a fun chocolate/pink print to match the embroidery on the denim. This woman is my sewing mentor and I’d love to steal her purse collection someday! This bag is particularly meaningful to me since the jeans belonged to my daughter and were turned into this fun purse in honor of THRIVE’s 1st birthday. You’ll LOVE the extra long strap—perfect for cross-body action while you’re out shopping. And the draw string closure on the inside? Genius. Nothing is coming out of this bag, even if it tips over. You can see more pictures of this awesome purse here. Merci Caroline!
$20 Gift Certificate to Kitty Cats & AirplanesShop for you and for someone on your Christmas list – one lucky THRIVE reader will have $20 to spend on the beautiful cabochon jewelry in Amie’s shop. (The steel blue cabbage rose necklace is calling to me …:)
