It’s Mandi’s birthday today! Yay! Happy Birthday Mandi!
It’s also Mother’s Day, so happy day to all of the baby mamas, furry baby moms, grandmas, soon-to-be moms, and wishing to be moms! Mandi is a super mom, and her little guy just celebrated his first birthday. Happy Birthday Hudson!

I’m in the mood to throw a party now! Speaking of parties, we are throwing one big party here on Sunny Slide Up for the month of October as our blog turns 2! Be sure to keep a lookout for giveaways all month long!
You remember our pal Laura Dro from a pretty sweet giveaway we had a while back? She is an amazing artist, and now her art is on shoes! This image popped up on my Instagram feed the other day. Love those shoes! I did a little more digging around to find out more about this Bucketfeet company.
Their mission is to connect people through art. They collaborate with artists from around the world to create products (more…)
So, one of my favorite wedding gifts we got was two GlassyBaby candles. My dear cousin lives in Seattle and gave me some candles for a gift! In red and teal of course for my love of these colors as they are my company colors for Dry Ink Designs – RED AND TEAL.
Here you can see them in my office!
They are amazing size, hold a tea-light and best yet, 10% from the sale of every glassy baby goes directly to organizations that support people in all kinds of needs. To date over $2M has been donated to help others.
Visit their website here for more information. You can see how they are made, how to stay in touch with their online community, and where to shop.
These are great! I love having them in my house – especially now that I know the story behind it!
