I couldn't help but share all of their creativity with you guys! Please be sure to check them out and give them lots and lots of love!!

Up first...

My name is Cathy Fuller. I am a wife and mother to my smart, sassy, and opinionated three-year-old daughter. I started Nap Time Creations MO when I was looking for a productive, fulfilling, and quiet hobby to engage in during nap times, and it has grown into a wonderful creative outlet for me.

Cathy is giving away a $25 shop credit! To see what you'd pick out if you won, check out her Etsy shop and to keep up with her beautiful creations, like her on Facebook! Cathy is also offering a 20% discount for all Love Like Johnny and June readers! Use discount code: LLJJMoms

My whole life I have been enthralled by paper; And once I learned how to hand-make paper, everything went {up}hill from there.

While attending the Kansas City Art Institute I worked part-time at a local Paper Source. Every day I loved going to work helping anyone who walked in off the street with a project. I thrived on creating a positive experience for our guests. After graduating with my BFA in Fibers, I set out to customize paper goods and to provide the best customer service possible for my own business. And now, I spend my days creating things for clients most memorable life events at Grace and Madd Paperie!


Fast forward several years and I am a Mom to a wonderful little lady, Quinn (thus my work structure has changed just a smidge)! I work early in the morning, during nap time, in the evenings, and any other bit of time I can squeeze in between our daily activities. It's hectic, but I totally love it. Grace (a.k.a. the "Grace" in Grace and Madd Paperie) is my trusty Shih-Tzu. She's been here from the start of my business, and literally sits beneath my desk while I work. It may seem silly to some to name my business after my dog, and myself, but for us it just seems natural. She deserves some credit for all of the late nights she's stayed up and worked with me, right? :-)

My favorite part of this business is the people. Hands down. I feel so honored to make paper items for the most memorable, and cherished events in peoples lives. It really is an exciting thing. I also enjoy being a creative voice for my clients. Usually when I am approached with a client in need of a project I will ask for their inspiration images, color ideas, and any other 'visions' they may have in their mind. Next, I strive to take all of those items combined with my paper and materials knowledge, wrap them into one cohesive idea, and viola! the paper version is born. It's an awesome experience.

Maddie was kind enough to send us a set of her custom thank you cards for the giveaway! See more of the cutest invitations and paper at Grace and Madd's website and in their Esty shop!


Aren't those water colors spectacular!?

Old Socks originated when I was brainstorming what I wanted to do for my Senior Art Exhibition in college. I wanted to find a unique way to convey my love for vintage through my photography, design and other art mediums. I started searching abandoned houses, dairy farms, or anything in between that looked remotely unsafe OR likely to fall down...I was obsessed!

My new love of all things forgotten some how connected me with an old pair of socks...tossed aside, abandoned, covered in dirt and considered useless. But it was within those characteristics that I found something unique, beautiful and most importantly something worth being shared. So...naturally the inspiration just started pouring out into all areas of my work. I started looking at ways to bring aspects into how I styled my photo shoots, by using my Grandpa's sweaters and other thrift store gems! It was soon effecting everything-and I loved it!

Tara is also the owner of Tara Shupe Photography, those Old Socks photos are courtesy of her talents! Her blog and etsy shop can be found HERE. AND, you can also find her on Instagram!

Tara is giving away one of her GORGEOUS handmade, metallic-dipped antler necklaces. I CANNOT wait to get my hands on one of these!

I created INSPIRED to spread my message of positivity and the power of words. In my darkest and lightest hours, I find myself looking for inspirational words and messages to keep me going and keep me motivated. I've always created whether it's doodling or photography, and in the last couple of years I have discovered how much I love to paint. I love bold colors, pretty papers and using funky materials to bring to life what I have dancing around in my head. My hope and intention for my pieces is to not only keep myself inspired, but to inspire others as well.

Love and Lullabies Custom Blankets is giving away a $20 shop credit! They make beautiful custom blankets. The patterns are unique and each one is made with love! Take a peek at their Etsy shop and be sure to follow them on Instagram.

My shop, Catshy Crafts is my little creative outlet and haven. As a stay-at-home mom to two daughters (9 and 4), my little handmade business keeps me sane after a busy day of taking care of my family. After years of scrapbooking and paper crafting, I fell in love with the soft and cozy feel of felt, yarn and hand-sewing. I create heartfelt decor and keepsakes (hoop art and yarn wreaths) for those who want a personalized cozy, home-spun touch to their homes. The majority of my orders are custom-made which makes my items truly unique for my customers.

I adore her creations. She made that fox hoop for Henry, isn't it the sweetest!?
