MayBee Blanket Give-Away!!!

By Amy

Oh my goodness, I planned on posting this awesome give-away yesterday, but I ended up spending the day at my mom's house.  Then when my son and I got home late in the evening, I was ready to write the post...but my husband had rented Divergent from Redbox (I've been so antsy to see it!) and made desert!  Um, I am not an idiot, therefore when my husband does something truly thoughtful, I'm not about to say, "Oh, sorry, but I need to go be a hermit with my laptop--thanks, but no thanks." No way. So, we put our son to bed, cuddled on the couch and watched a movie!  :)  Then today, I spent most of the day traveling to my friend's wedding, went to a baby shower, and now I am home.  Whew.

So, without further delay, here's the give-away!

My great-aunt Mabel runs her own Etsy shop called MayBee Blankets.

She specializes in making soft, adorable baby blankets, but also makes other sizes, including adult sized blankets.  Good heck, if I had an adult sized one, I would pretty much become like Linus and drag it around with me all day with me.  Come winter, I'd probably just hibernate in it's soft gloriousness and watch Netflix all day.  Sounds fabulous, huh? :)

She has a perfect 5 star rating on her reviews on Etsy, so you know she makes quality blankets.  I am so happy that she was willing to give a baby blanket away to one of you for SOM's Blogiversary week!

OH, and the best part?  If you win, YOU get to pick the blanket, and there are TONS of awesome combinations of fabric and minky colors.  Check it out! :)



I would love this one for my toddler!  He has a sock monkey that he ADORES.


I love the simple navy blue with the white minky.  So classy!  If I ever have a girl, her room will be navy with hot pink, and this blanket would be my choice! :)  Actually, it would be great for a boy too!


Don't they look so soft and cozy to wrap a sweet little babe in!?  I love the variety...there are TONS of other choices in her shop.  There are options like cartoon characters for the front fabric, but personally I really appreciate how she has so many options that aren't cartoony...makes for a more modern nursery. So, if you're like me, and you don't necessarily want Buzz Lightyear or Barbie decor in a nursery or kid's room, the other options are perfect!  :)

I also love how these blankets would make such a unique, thoughtful gift for any friend, neighbor, or family member who is having a baby.  So, if you don't have your own baby right now, you could win an awesome gift! :)

Here's Mabel's story on how she began making these cozy blankets...

"My daughter-in-law introduced me to a wonderful fabric called Minky. I loved the look, and especially the feel of the fabric, so I started making blankets for my grandkids.  (I have been sewing for 44 years.)  Other people saw them, touched them, and wanted their own, so I made them blankets too! In 2010-2011 I was out of work for 11 months with Ovarian cancer.  I went through surgery twice and Chemo.  It was scary and physically draining, but making these blankets was my "healing therapy". Well, more and more people were asking me to make them a blanket, so I started my own business making baby blankets!  Then people asked me if I did adult size, so I started making adult blankets also. Currently I am working as a full-time Registered Nurse, but as I approach retirement, I'm happy to have this business to keep me busy.  I love all the blankets I make.  They are my babies.  Each blanket is handmade by me, especially for you."
