Favorite Finds Update

Happy new year! Well, we have some unhappy news. After some personal circumstances between Scott, Emily and me, we have decided to close Favorite Finds (Baton Rouge and Northshore). This decision did not come easily. With Kathryn accepting a full time job, her art and the Smock Market plus Scott and Emily expecting their first child and fostering a five month old, Favorite Finds has not had the attention it deserves. When Favorite Finds was started as a community of local business moms we didn't think we would be where we are today!
We have really enjoyed our relationships that have been built because of the business and appreciate all of your support. Please let us know if we can do anything for you and if you have any questions. We hope 2012 brings you and your business much success. God Bless!
Scott and Emily

Best Blanket, even have one for a Tiger Fan!

About 3 weeks ago, I got a blanket from Baby Beulah, planning to use it as a baby blanket. I have to share it with YOU!

Baby Beulah creates custom keepsake blankets for you and your little ones. They use only top quality materials and embroider before sewing the layers together for a more quality product.

Of course, when mine came in the mail, I washed it first before wrapping my little one in it and it washed great! It looked the same as before I washed and still felt extra soft and cozy.

My baby loves her Baby Beulah blanket! I have tried so many different things to calm her when she gets fussy and one of the only few things that actually helps is wrapping her in this blanket! She loves it!

AND, here is the kicker..... my blanket is tiger stripes on one side and purple on the other. Perfect for LSU Game Day! My little girl looks so cute all bundled up in it when the Tigers play! And of course, everyone wants to hold her and they all comment how soft the blanket is.

These blankets are not just for babies. They come in all different sizes! I'm thinking about ordering some for graduation gifts and Christmas presents. I also have a baby dedication coming up, I think I may order one for that precious baby.

Baby Beulah has all types of colors and patterns. So you can personalize your blanket any way you want. They even do monogramming!!!! Which makes any blanket extra special.

Baby Beulah is definitely one of my FAVORITE FINDS and she is offering Free Shipping for all Favorite Find Shoppers. Just use coupon code BRFVFINDS at checkout!

From the Everyday to Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Merry Christmas, or Just Because...Kiss My Boutique has the perfect gift for any occasion!

Birthdays were a big deal in my family growing up. My mom would make us a huge "Happy Birthday" sign from construction paper, streamers and string. We always got so excited as our birthdays came near. We knew that it would be our special day and that birthday sign would proclaim it to everyone! What great memories it made for me. Now you can make your own birthday memories with the "Happy Birthday" plate! Make your child or loved one feel special on their special day. I am so excited to use this plate and my kids are too! 

All of the products sold by Kiss my Boutique are dishwasher safe! They can also be personalized for an extra fee. Her products range from dinner plates to cocktail glasses to cookie Jars and tea sets. She also welcomes and encourages custom designs! These items are great to purchase for your family or friends and make great gifts! The plate that I received is a great quality sturdy ceramic large dinner plate and the colors are so vibrant! The products that she offers are meant to last! Laurie takes great pride in her work and will not sell anything that she wouldn't buy herself!

We are excited to share with you one of our recent favorite finds~ Football Tees! They have just joined the FAVORITE FIND team in our online directory of local finds.  They have the cutest tees for women and toddlers. Check out their listing on our DIRECTORY. We passed one of the tees on to Sarah McNeil (a Favorite Finds Review Editor). Check out her review below of Football Tees!

"I am a Fitness professional so for most of my day I am up and about doing things.   I’m in the office, teaching exercise classes, setting up games for kids, and much more.  Football Tees are super comfortable, lightweight and breathable.  My tee shirt was so comfortable to exercise in!  It was cool so I didn’t get too hot working out and it didn’t ride up as I exercised.  The best part is - it doesn’t shrink when you wash it!
Football Tees are so cute and would make the perfect outfit for the upcoming football season!  We all know those afternoon games can get pretty hot as we all pack in to watch the Tigers play!   What a great find – a cute shirt that you can wear to the games, that won’t make you super hot as your sitting in Tiger Stadium!  
The tees are fitted so if you’re like me and you wear a different size at every store you go to, I would recommend ordering on the larger side of your size because I think the shirts run small.  Whether you’re cheering for the Tigers or the Saints this fall, Football Tees has the perfect shirt for you.  And if you are cheering for both teams, then you might just have to get two Football Tees!"

Fabulous Bag!

I am fairly new to scrapbooking. Being a detailed person, I am still on my first book and I started it a year ago! As I am getting more into the art of scrapbooking, I have found that one can accumulate quite a few "supplies" rather quickly.  I needed a bag that would be great for organizing all the little things of scrapbooking (ribbon, stickers, tape, scissors, etc.) and all the big things as well (pictures, paper, the actual book, etc.). I was looking for a bag that I could easily keep all the things I need for this one book and more. A bag that I could just pick up and go to scrapbook with friends!

I know that I am asking a lot! Well, I found it!

It is this great organizing utility tote by one of our favorite finds, Thirty One Gifts! Katie Leach is an independent consultant for Thirty One Gifts. You can check out her listing here! It is perfect for my scrapbooking accessories, as well as many other things. I have the grey, black and white polka dot (there are a multitude of color and design options and you can get it monogrammed!)

It has mesh pockets on each side, and deep pockets along the front and back! Really, it is great! Here is the link if you want to order one for yourself. Oh! and They are April's Favorite Find! So, be on the look out for the deal coming this Friday!

Here is mine stuffed with all my goodies!

Happy Shopping!


P.S. I also got the zipper pouch to match!
