Monday suck-day, take 8!!

Monday, October 6, 2008

The weekend flew past me. I woke up thinking it was Sunday (don't you hate that?). Mostly because Christopher spent most of his weekend doing a military exercise, which consequently had me spending most of my weekend being a full time toddler entertainer and part time house wife. But here we are folks... Monday.

Its suck-day! I'm super excited for today's giveaway. When I say super, I mean like, SUPER. Did I just sound like a teenage girl? Yeah that happens sometimes. But really, today's suck-day giveaway is being sponsored by one of my new absolute favorite etsy shops, BeanPickleSprout. I am now the proud owner of both of the items you see above. Jealous? Well you don't have to be, because you can win a potholder or bib of your choice from her shop! *waits for applause*... I knowww!!

Here's what you have to do:
-Take a virtual road trip over to BeanPickleSprout.
-Look through both the bibs and the potholders. Choose which item (but really its impossible to choose just one) you wish you had the most.
-Come back to this blog entry and leave us a comment telling us what you loved, making sure to leave a name and email, or some way for me to get a hold of you. And tell us why Monday's suck! Because they totally do right?
-The bib or potholder that you choose, is the item that you'll win. Isn't this the best giveaway ever??
-Contest will end Thursday morning-ish.
-Go, hurry, suck!

(If you would like to sponsor a Halloween suck-day giveaway, please email me or send me a convo at my etsy shop. Thanks!)

-"Acorn in the Lime Dot Bib", by BeanPickleSprout, $12.00.
-"Purple Bird in the Diamonds Pot Holder", by BeanPickleSprout, $13.00.

I have to admit I love the little birdy! AND I have so many friends that are pregnant right now! Love her shop!

LeaKarts October 6, 2008 at 10:03 AM  

Ooh, I love her shop!!! This is my favorite potholder:

The tree makes me happy :) I also love the pumpkin orange and brown in super cool prints!

Mondays suck less since I work from home and usually work weekends, too, but it's still hard to get back into the school-work-week grind.


Krystan October 6, 2008 at 10:04 AM

cute and dainty, like me. NOT.
but still, I want it.

RuJu October 6, 2008 at 10:10 AM  

Not fair that I had to pick just one. Seriously.

This is it tho

you can get me on my etsy.


Maybe just maybe next monday will be less sucky. For some reason I doubt it tho.

BeckyKay October 6, 2008 at 10:26 AM  

What a fabulous shop!!! Had to add it to my favorites.

I like this two trees potholder:

This Monday sucks cause it's raining and I'm at work. Rainy days are better spent at home!

Art Kitten October 6, 2008 at 11:46 AM

I loved them all, I have to admit, but I really loved this the best. I love green and I love polka dots and I love birds, therefore I can't go wrong with this!

And this is a really sucky Monday, because I wasn't supposed to have to work today, and I got suckered into subbing. Blah.

Katie October 6, 2008 at 12:01 PM  

Do you realize how much time I spent mulling over which ONE to pick? I finally settled on this ADORABLE bib: My sister-in-law is having a baby and I just want to buy her everything. :)

Mondays suck because it is the day furthest away from the weekend, I work 10 hours a day, and it's laundry day. I hate doing laundry.

Katie October 6, 2008 at 12:02 PM  

oh and you can reach me at my blog or

Maggie October 6, 2008 at 12:53 PM  

I love the green polka dot turtle pot holder, it will match my newly painted kitchen (once we finish actually painting it!)

Monday sucks because both my kids have ear infections, so there is a giant 13 yr old on my couch and my other son is hundreds of miles away.

irenedesign October 6, 2008 at 1:35 PM  

such a hard decision. She really does have great stuff! I chose the hedgehog though...he's freakin awesome!
I try not to think about how much Mondays suck, but it is the only day of the week when my husband is still asleep when I am leaving for work! That makes it extra hard to get out of the door on time!

jessicajane October 6, 2008 at 1:45 PM  

I love the lemon potholder :)

Mondays suck because I dont shower on Sundays and my hair is usually greasy and my armpits smelly.

hybridhopes October 6, 2008 at 2:08 PM  

That was a hard decision.
Any of the bird ones are pretty cool. My favorite: this one.

Estela October 6, 2008 at 2:48 PM  

GREAT GIVEAWAY!! Beanpicklesprout rocks!!

I love the Tree in the Coriander Pot Holder!

And mondays suck because that's the day I have all my classes. Boo!

Oh Mandie! October 6, 2008 at 2:53 PM  

Boo my babies are too big for bibs - but I'd so be THAT mom and stick em in one of these anyways because they are so darn cute!

But the potholder are amazing! I need this little guy in my life!
Bird in the Polka Dots Pot Holder

Mondays suck for me because I have to go back to work. I am always tired and not in the mood to be working.

The Bird in the Medallions Pot Holder would totally spice up a sucky Monday!


ashley October 6, 2008 at 3:19 PM  

I love, love love the Blue Bird in the Polka Dots Pot Holder
Those are my favorite colors. What a beautiful shop!

Brandon October 6, 2008 at 3:24 PM  

I luv this:

her work is fabolous!


Devin October 7, 2008 at 8:53 AM  

I lov ethe bidbs.Theya re so cute.I lvoe your shop.Will be back to buyone of those adorable bids soon:0)

Amanda October 7, 2008 at 10:12 AM  

well, it's tuesday now, so not so sucky. but i'd still prefer if it were friday.....

monday's suck because you have to wake up early.. even though you stayed up late because you slept in on Sunday...

I couldn't decide between this one and the blue bird potholder. but i think this one is my favourite, and look best in my kitchen:

Ally October 7, 2008 at 11:17 AM  

Wow, that is an Awesome shop! I know its not monday anymore but...

I love the Bird in the medallions potholder.

Mondays suck because my husband has to go back to work, its only 6 miles away but we have so much fun when he is home!

Shop With Amy October 7, 2008 at 11:02 PM

I LOOOOOVE this:) And I just have to say, Monday's suck because they're hectic...just complete chaos!

I love the Tree in the Coriander pot holder (

Mondays suck because...of work of course. ;-)

Digital Misfit October 8, 2008 at 2:06 AM  

What a great shop!
I am a huge fan of potholders!
This Two Trees potholder is adorable :) I love the colors (and of course TREES!)

Mondays do suck because of that whole "I wanna sleep in!" thing, but they also rock because it means there is a good chance that my mailbox will be filled with etsy goodies!

jenelisebeth October 8, 2008 at 9:42 AM  

I loooove the Blue Bird Pot holder:

And...Mondays sucks because that means that it's back to work, fiance goes back to work, and that means he's got to go to class at night (Mondays AND Tuesdays), which means he's grumpy, gets home late, and I have to make dinner all by myself. Blah.

Debbie October 8, 2008 at 12:37 PM  

I really like this potholder
I like the way you have the holder for your hand. Very clever!

Mondays suck because you have to get back into the grind of the week ahead and they're always so busy.

fringe October 8, 2008 at 2:09 PM  

my, it was very difficult to pick one item from BeanPickleSprout's shop, they are all absolutely enchanting. i went with the potholders and only was able to narrow it down by what colors go best with my kitchen :). they really all are delightful. thanks so much for pointing out this shop, tia!

my choice is the Bird in Polka Dots Potholder

although i can't give any sensible reason as to why mondays suck, i can tell you that i usually find myself saying "what fresh hell is this?" more often on mondays than any other day.

Amy L. October 9, 2008 at 6:41 AM  

Ok, that was pretty impossible to pick a favorite. I've been wanting something from this shop FOREVER!! I guess I'll pick this one, though it really was a tie!

Space Oddities October 9, 2008 at 8:33 AM  

awesome shop!! i looove this one:

blueviolet October 9, 2008 at 9:46 AM  

I love the blue bird potholder! However, the store is chock full of cuteness in every category.

Mrs.Kwitty October 9, 2008 at 10:58 AM  

What an adorable shop!!! I had to go with the chartreuse potholder--Love it!! Though it was difficult to choose, the patterns and colors are so sweet!

Thanks for the great giveaway!
Smiles, Karen

I love the Brown Flower Turtle Pot Holder!! All of my potholders are lame and ugly. Mondays suck because it takes me all week to wake up early and then I have to start over again (or I could wake up early on Saturday and Sunday....nah!)

Knits and Notions October 9, 2008 at 11:05 AM  

I LOVE this turtle pot holder:

Mondays suck because I wake up to an annoying alarm at an time earlier than I would like, instead of waking up to my son coming in my bed to a decent hour. Hmm...I guess if that is the case then weekdays suck!

Christopher And Tia October 9, 2008 at 12:56 PM  

Thank you to everyone that entered this weeks giveaway! The contest is now closed :) Make sure to come back next Monday for another suck-day giveaway!!

xx Tia
