Welcome to Somehwhere Over the Rainbow---the BLOG! Here you'll stay updated on new items, old items, DIY tutorials.....and MORE!

My shop is a mix of custom, personal creations from wood, paper, glass, ribbon and love. I strive to create---and encompass---that sacred connection between remembrance and hope in each item through the support of those effected by pregnancy and infant loss. Proceeds from remembrance items are used to gift such items to other families on similar grief journeys. I lost my beautiful daughter Hannah to stillbirth and these things are done in her honor. So thank you for stopping by and for your support.

Giveaway {times} THREE!

Busy! Busy! Busy!

I just LOVE working with you guys to totally come up with some fabulous ideas! I ended up doing the age blocks because of a custom request, and seriously, how great are these name blocks with the babe's stats added?


What a great idea Noah's mommy had when she requested that! I feel so blessed to be able to do this and as I've said before, well, I'm just a horrible business person! I have a very soft heart and just love to give things away! So I'm looking to come up with some NEW {custom} designs, which equals FREEBIES for some of you!
 
GIVEAWAY 1
First, remember my son Bobby's BIG 4th Birthday Circus? It was spectacular! I wish I'd gotten a pic of the completed candy table but unfortunately I failed on that one! It really looked awesome! Here's some pics of the day just so you can get an idea of the graphics.





Oh how I slacked on taking pictures (as usual!) and capturing all those tiny details. But for one of you (I hope) that won't be the case! I am giving away a custom design set of party printables. That's right---you get invites, cupcakes toppers, goody bag labels and 2 signs, custom designed for you with YOUR theme! I can't wait to share ideas and come up with something spectacular for one of you! And pretty, pretty please take better pictures than me!

So that's giveaway 1. What's number 2, you ask? This---

GIVEAWAY 2 

This is a family tree I made for my MIL at Christmas. Her's was put onto a beautiful platter but I made my brother and sister(in-laws) copies on 5x7 tiles as well. My husband happens to be the youngest of 10 so our family tree on his side is HUGE! I'm looking to do a "smaller" version of someone else's family, hence this giveaway! Winner will receive their tree drawn and presented in some artistic fashion. Honestly, I'm not sure yet how I want to display it so that part will be a surprise!

GIVEAWAY 3
And lastly, well, I have no picture for this one because it is a BRAND NEW idea I've got swirling in my head. Pics will be posted upon completion!

So, interested?!
