FUNDAY MONDAY: Bunch of Bees {GIVEAWAY}

Today's FUNDAY MONDAY giveaway is from Bunch of Bees, a new Etsy store started by one of my good friends and fellow mother of multiples, Andreina.   Somehow, in between having a job and juggling her adorable 1 year old boys, she's found the time to sew up some of the sweetest products I've seen in a while.  I mean, really, just look at this cuteness!


That's Izzie the Bee and she's just one of the adorable Boo Boo Bee Gone bags from Bunch of Bees.  Not a bee person?  Then maybe Igor the Monster is more your type of guy.


Or you'll jump ship for Captain Remy the Pirate.


Or skate across thin ice for Felix the Penguin!


No matter which one you choose, this whole cast of characters is ready and able to make your sweetie feel all better!

You may be wondering exactly what a Boo Boo Bee Gone bag is.  It's the perfect remedy for times when your little one needs something warm or cold for a bump, bruise, bug bite, whatever.  They're filled with 100% organic flax and barley seeds, which hold the temperatures, and treated with lavender and chamomile for lots of comfort.   Andreina sent me one to check out and when Pippa the Owl arrived in the mail, I couldn't believe my eyes.


Each Boo Boo Bee Gone bag comes with it's own story (you can read Pippa's above) including the details of his or her own boo boo.  But when you look closely, you see how amazing the details are.


She was so sassy!  And the lavender and chamomile smells heavenly.  I wanted to curl up with Pippa myself.  You may notice there aren't any pictures of Gabrielle and Alaina with their new owl friend.  Since we only have one, when I bring it out, they start fighting over it so I need to order another one and fast.  They've been pretending to have boo boos (no, Alaina spaghetti sauce isn't a cut) just to see Pippa!

Besides the Boo Boo Bee Gone bags, Bunch of Bees has lots of other wonderful handmade products.  The Bunch of Burpies would make great shower or new baby gifts.


And I love the fabric covered pads that can be used as mouse pads or hot trivets.


There are so many pretty patterns to choose from, it would be hard to pick just one!


Andreina was kind enough to send me one to review and it's so lovely in person.


I can't wait to put it in my new home office which yes, must be functional, but more importantly has to be fabulous as well!  This is the perfect start.

Whether you're looking for a gift for someone else or a little treat for yourself, head on over to Bunch of Bees for unique handmade goodies you're sure to love.


And you're in luck because Andreina has generously offered to give away $25 credit to her store one lucky AFOMFT reader!  To enter, visit Bunch of Bees and post a comment here telling me what you'd spend it on (this is mandatory).  For additional entries:
