Rockin' Baby Giveaway!

I am super excited about this week's giveaway! I found this great little store called Rocker Bye Baby that has very cool hand sewn items, all done by a mom named Amber! Her stuff is truly well-crafted and is absolutely perfect for hip, edgy moms or for that one-of-a-kind unique baby gift! (ahem, which BTW I am due in May LOL).

So check her store out, she makes everything! Her motto is, "WE HAVE EVERYTHING IN STOCK FOR YOUR BABY TO ROCK!!" and she's not kidding! This rockin mom makes onesies, bibs, burp rags, taggie blankets, changing pads, complete crib sets, etc and even takes custom orders. I personally LOVE having unique baby stuff that no one else has, and you can only get that from artisans like Rocker Bye Baby, not in regular stores! Most of the stuff in stores is a little too foo-foo for me anyway ;)

Tell me if you agree! Leave a comment here and you will be entered to win this gorgeous skull taggie blankie, with which he has coined the term "Skullie!" We all know babies love the tags the best, so these Skullies are chock full of them in different colors and she even adds a ring for pacifiers or other toys. Then she tops it off with the softest chenille and its perfect!

Win a rockin' tote bag from Little Shark Press!

Ok kiddos, we've got a great giveaway this
week! LITTLE SHARK PRESS is an independent screenprinting company creating unconventional designs, using eco-friendly water-based inks and sweatshop-free apparel. Now that rocks!

I know, I know, some of you are sick of the whole "green" thing... and me being pregnant I am definitely guilty of eating some not-so-friendly chicken from McDonalds once in a while... but hey, I can only hope that we still try our best in whichever ways we can to be kind to the earth and its inhabitants. Now with this badass Sugar Skull tote bag you can do it in style! Green doesnt have to be frumpy, people. I would totally use this bag when I go shopping at Michael's instead of using a plastic bag just to buy some jewelry stuff. Or to carry some books and toys when I have to go somewhere with my 2-year old.

Lisa and Scott are the hard workers behind Little Shark Press and they even donate a portion of their proceeds to a worthy cause. So go check out their cool, trendy designs they have in their shop!!
Oh and dont forget to leave your comments and tell us what you think to be entered to win it!

Heidi G is the winner of this fun tote! Congrats! An email has been sent to the winner for shipping info :)

Come shop with me this Sat!

Looking for unique gifts this year? Then not only are you at the right blog, but I will be selling my funky, kitsch jewelry items at this huge Craftorama this Sat! Come see me!!

We gals here at Lipgloss and Razorblades firmly believe that handmade gifts are not only unique and one of a kind in contrast to the typical Target and Walmart wares (even tho we love those stores) but when you buy directly from an artisan you are helping the economy in the most most effective way possible... by supporting that artist and their family directly! They in turn have a lil' extra money to spend boosting the economy too. And we all know times are tough right now, but where you choose to spend your dollar can make all the difference this holiday season :)

Much love, Stacy M.

This week's artist: ARTCSARA!

Okay folks, Stacy and I took a lil break from blogging for Thanksgiving weekend but now we are back in full swing! And I brought along with me a wonderful new artist this week, artcsara. I picked her to feature because this artist's beadwork is detailed and her prices are OH SO REASONABLE! And just when you thought you couldnt find anything for Aunt Becky who is SO hard to please LOL. She has OOAK (one of a kind) wine charm sets starting at just $6.25 which is amazing!

Ok so her Etsy shop is DEF worth checking out and all you need to do is leave a comment here, telling us your thoughts about artcsara and you could win this FREE colorful set of wine charms! Cause you know, everyone walks around a holiday party asking, "Is this my glass or yours? I dont know... I think mine was more full..." LOL

Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day and reflected on all the great things in life to be happy for :) Now let the holiday madness begin...
