BLANKET THE WORLD WITH LOVE {2}

Blanket_Love_Day

Ellie Fun Day’s Second Annual “Blanket the World Day with Love

Remember the movie “Crash?” A small or big action snowballed into something better or worse. I remember one time I woke up on the right side of the bed and everyone that crossed my path that day saw the better side of me. I laughed, smiled, and even made a new friend. Another time, I woke up on the wrong side and I rolled my eyes at people and argued with my husband about who knows what. That led to many people having a horrible day probably (oops, sorry!).

The smallest acts can pay it forward (or backward, but hopefully not) in a HUGE way. You never know! Whatever it may be, a simple act of love and kindness can go a long way!

Join us in this day to show a little lovin’! Tag your pictures and share your story to enter into a LOVEly giveaway by using the hashtags:

Here are some ideas for what you can do with a family, friend, coworker, or even stranger!

1) L-ips (physical and words)

*give someone a little smooch or peck, who doesn’t love that? (preferably to someone you know)
*say something you appreciate about them that you haven’t said in a while
*give a HUG (studies say it prolongs your life)
*vow to say thank you or hello to everyone that comes your day today

2) O-ffering (gifts)

*buy someone a lunch
*pay for someone’s toll behind you
*buy someone coffee

3) V-isit (quality time and acts)

*spend some time with someone you haven’t sat down with for a long time
*bring a friend or family member out on a date

4) E-ncouragement (words)

stars to me

*print out our free printables here, something short and sweet can make someone smile
*tell someone they are doing a great job
*call someone and really ask how they are doing

We should be blanketing our world with love everyday. But we’re planning ONE day where we’ll all do it together! Mark your calendars – JANUARY 18th! What will you be doing for “Blanket the World with Love” Day?

Giveaway #6 EllieFunDay LoveStruck Blanket and GuavaMitts!

I’m in love with our blankies! Yes they JUST LANDED and we’ve shipped them off to exclusive retailers just in the nick of time for Christmas. This is monumental on so many different occasions. We’ve worked hard with our women in India to give them a sustainable fair-wage to help empower their families out of poverty. They’ve had a month of learning an entirely new product and persevered through the difficulties and have now succeeded!

So for this giveaway we are giving away our LOVESTRUCK BLANKET in partnership with an awesome company that I’ve come to love dearly and personally. The stupendous ladies (yes they are stupendous, if you meet them you will know exactly why) at GuavaKids have been my fairy-god mommas in this whole foray into the children’s product business. They’ve paved the path and shared with me many great tips and trade secrets (that I will never reveal). We are giving away a pair of their awesome Guava Mitts with our Lovestruck Blanket.

Guava Mitts are baby mitts designed to stay on a baby’s hands comfortably and can be adjusted to the right sizes as they grow. By wearing mittens, babies no longer run the risk of scratching their faces, and can avoid ingesting germs from others who touch their hands.

I’m starting to feel like Santa Claus since it’s so fun to give away our blankies! Last week we asked all of you what your favorite baby gift was, well, this week I’m sharing mine! Chewbeads has caught my attention since I spotted them at a cute boutique while I was visiting Alexandria, VA. I love them since they’re both a fashionable accessory for mom AND a great teether for baby. We thought we’d give them away with our Rain Clouds blanket since they match them so adorably! Our Rain Clouds blanket was inspired by my other favorite city PORTLAND! *hello PDXers!* I love snuggling up with a hot caramel apple cider and my warm and cozy blanket when it’s raining outside!
