Whoa. That went fast.
Did you even see December fly by? Because I barely remember it and it just happened.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times – the support of you and our sponsors helps pay the bills. Not figuratively. LITERALLY. It pays for bills, all our projects, some food (errg…my muffintop), and THIS BLOG. You make Bower Power possible. Because anyone that blogs will tell you, there comes a point when your free little hobby ain’t so free anymore. You make all this possible. You support us just by stopping by, supporting our sponsors, and you motivate us through your comments and daily encouragement. So thank you. And special heartfelt thanks to the companies, blogs and people that have some kick-A products that advertised here this past month.
Based in Sydney, Australia, Coco & Ella specialize in affordable, modern, design of custom digital & print invitations and announcements for birthdays, babies, weddings…and anything. They also offer a graphic design service for marketing material, logos, stationary and really any custom design work you can think of….I love their Easter card…perfect if those Christmas cards just didn’t get marked off your to-do list 🙂
Robyn is a fellow blogger and she tells it how it is with her own grown kids and her house projects. A girl after my own heart this one. Plus, her upcycled dresser pretty much rocked my world.
Handmade by KP carries highly functional handcrafted items with fun fabrics and modern prints. Items like reusable market bags to baby bow ties. I am dying over the drawstring totes…they would be amazingly adorable for all those random toys that Will got over the holidays…easy to carry, perfect for organizing blocks from matchbox cars and cute to boot!
P.C. Fallon Co. carries brand name bath & body products, home fragrance, bedding, kitchen, and gifts…stuff you can really sink those Christmas gift card teeth into. Oh and they have Spartina bags. Plus, since I know you guys like fancy bath products – so you gotta check out their newest line is Archipelago Botanicals. Here is the link for Archipelago Bath & Body and here is the link for Archipelago Botanicals Home Fragrance.
Evgie Nev is one amazing decal shop. Perfect for those soon-to-be moms who want to have their nurseries look special without a ton of work – slap one of these gorg decals on the wall and welcome your little one home in style. So cute it’s ridiculous. Oh and if they ever outgrow it, well, it’s a decal…just peel it off! Plus, you get 10% off with the code ‘bpblog’ so all the more reason to shop 🙂
I have fixation with my Scentsy burners and bricks. And I basically walk around sniffing Will whenever he falls asleep on his Scentsy Buddy…it’s divine. So I wouldn’t mind him having another smell-good friend in his room…or in mine 🙂 And yes, I tried out the fake burners and bricks at Walmart…so NOT the same. This is the real stuff and it is worth every dang penny.
My own brother – yup, he’s a master plumber in the dirty south. And yes, he definitely sees his fair share of the ‘dirty’. This link is to his facebook page which has his number and if you are in the greater Birmingham area, he’s honest, affordable and hilarious. So that toilet or shower that you have been wanting to update for the new year can finally be a reality.
That’s December ya’ll – over and out!
