Good Times & Parties {Little Birdi Paper Shop GIVEAWAY}

The holidays always bring good times and parties to the schedule. It's a great way to end the year - with family, friends, great food and making memories. I'm always thankful for the opportunity to get together and have some fun. Aren't you? If you've got a blog post about something you're thankful for, be sure to join the Gratitude Linky, open through the end of the month!

Along with parties comes party planning, and with party planning comes party decorations. Decorations are SO much fun, don't you think? It's one of the best parts of planning an event. 



Here at home, we have two birthdays that coincide with the Christmas holiday. At first, some might think that means extra presents for the birthday girl (or boy). What it usually means is birthday presents wrapped in Christmas gift wrap. People sometimes just straight out forget because of all the holiday chaos. It's always a "Merry Christmas" wish before a "Happy Birthday" one. I completely understand that it's difficult, and I'm not complaining. This is just part of the territory of sharing your day of birth with one of the biggest celebrations of the entire year. But since they are my daughters...I like to distinguish between the two events. I try my best to make them feel special on their special days. Last year we had a Zebra Theme, and it was pretty fun. This year, I have no idea - at least - not yet, but I have a couple of ideas...

My family and I - we are HUGE Disney fans. Huge. Some of you may know this already. I was super excited when I found out about Jenny's shop - Little Birdi Paper Shop (she is a fellow Disney lover!). I'm even more excited that I get to show you what she creates! 


Do you need banners, cupcake toppers, or favor bags for an upcoming birthday party? Looking for a personalized ornament? Enter Little Birdi Paper Shop, where Jenny is dedicated to creating items such as these. Her shop is full of fun birthday themes and ideas for kids' parties. She's even got a few other items, like "Save the Date" and "Thank You" banners. Plus, I'm sure she could whip something up for Christmas or New Year's Eve too. 



Here's our Q&A session:
How did you get started in creating party supplies & selling on Etsy?
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was laid off from my job. I started brainstorming about what I could do to stay at home with her. I put my love of scrapbooking and papercrafting to use and my Etsy shop was born.


How did you choose your shop name? 
My husband and I call our daughter Little Birdi because she is always eating off of everyone's plates. I wanted to incorporate her in my shop name because she is my number one reason for starting this shop.



What is one of your most favorite items to make?
I love to make Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Favor Bags. They are one of the first creations that I ever made and sold. They have become one of my most popular items.

Are there any colors that you especially like to use in your creations?
Right now I'm really loving playing around with colors I don't usually work with. I just made a Little Man Mustache banner with soft gray tones and bright aqua blue. The colors are so opposite that it works. I was very proud of the finished product.



Great news for my readers: Jenny is offering a 15% off discount with coupon code SAT15OFF, and it's good through 1/31/14!!!


In addition, she is sponsoring a giveaway here at 2justByou Blog, with the prize of a $40 shop credit. Giveaway is open to US residents and ends on Sunday night, December 8th at midnight, EST. To enter, please fill out the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!
