Win 2 Tickets HAMMS 2015



For my local Minnesota friends, I’ll be at the HAMMS event again this year.  It’s such a fun time with local Minnesota makers & fabulous food trucks.

HAMMS is an unique event for the MN makers because it’s a crowdfunding concept where one maker will receive $5000.  It’s about supporting local small businesses most of all and I’m so proud to be a part of event again.

You can purchase tickets online (through 10pm on April 10th) here and I’m giving away 2 tickets, along with a $25 gift certificate you can use for anything at my Etsy shop.  (no expiration date)

Also if you would like to place an order & pick up at the event, use the coupon code “LOCALPICKUP” at my Etsy shop (please leave a comment at checkout that you will pick up at the HAMMS event).

Just a note My Little Chickadee Creations is closed now through April 5th.  We are taking a little time away as a family to recharge the batteries.  In the meantime, pop over to my Etsy shop and enjoy 20% off my tile coasters & trivets.  I’ll resume shipping on April 6th.

I hope you all have a blessed week and Easter!  Take some time for yourself and your loved ones.

treasury thursday: for the home


Baby Girl Changing Pad in Flannel Turquoise Flowers by HattieDesigns

With spring here, (even though the scene outside my home looks more like winter, I’m pretending that white stuff isn’t there!), I’m ready to pitch anything winter related, decor wise.  It’s time for color, flowers, freshness!

I love this spring home decor inspired collection, curated by Kathy with Hattie Designs.   I love the pops of turquoise (my color for this year!), blues, purples.  Thank you Kathy for including my home magnets.  

Would you like a treasury you have curated featured on my blog? Either include one of my items from my Etsy shop or tag your treasury “mylittlechickadee” and if I pick your treasury I will feature one of your items in the blog post along with the treasury.

chick reflection: spring


“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”  – Anne Bradstreet

As a lifelong Minnesotan, I truly appreciate this quote.  I must admit after this past Minnesota I can’t complain as we really didn’t have that rough of a winter with snow and super cold temps (like the winter before).  I think of those more north and to the east of us who are still dealing with snow and I understand how excited and eager they must be to see the signs of spring.  And oh those signs of spring will be ever so welcomed by those folks who have been buried under the endless mounds of snow.

Remember no matter how dark and cold it gets, lightness and warmth does manage to appear.  Be open to it.  And appreciate each moment of sunshine when it shines; soak it up to the depth of your soul.
