When we made the decision to give blog sponsors a shot, we knew the goal would be to connect our readers to fresh and fabulous products. This month, our sponsors have exceeded our expectations. Check it:
There are a ton of stencil companies floating around out there, but I actually asked Olive of Olive Leaf Stencils if she would want to be a part of our growing virtual family because her stencils are way cooler than any others I have seen. She has a background in art (soul sisters?) and has channeled all that creativity into fabulous stencils, like the Ikat above, that would not only make an amazing statement on a wall--but imagine curtains and area rugs. (!!!) I am also head over heels for this one. Maybe for Greta's big girl room soon!
Shades of Light you've heard about a little already. Not only did I use one of their area rugs in a client's room here, but they also provided all of the lighting options you voted on for the studio. This one, pictured above, I am certain I could design an entire space after. I'd definitely throw this area rug under it. Psst. Using code EMNP37 will get you 10% off their outdoor lighting collection through 5/22.
I love all of the Idea Boxes in this Etsy shop, but I feel like this Story Box would be so fun for every age. Choosing words out of a box that you have to use in the story or using them as the basis for an entire tale could be hilarious and really keep you on your toes. Also, the Chores box? Totally gearing up to get that one for Greta.
Found Around is an Etsy shop packed full of vintage items at affordable prices. We actually found our big wall map there for a steal! I am currently crushing on these Pollock-inspired blush salt and pepper shakers and this bright, vintage Japanese Lotus bowl. Swoon. And don't forget to enter MAY2012 at checkout for an additional 30% off.
What do you get when you combine a graphic designer, photographer and teacher? An Etsy shop full of gorgeous prints and these cool classroom posters. It's about time classroom posters got a makeover, right? For a limited time, you can even special order a person and a quote for a "Deck the Classroom" poster at no extra charge. I have a talented little sister--that's for sure.
