The Purple Carrot + A Giveaway!

***Update! Giveaway Closed! I used to select a winner and the winner is... Julie J! Congrats, friend!***

I have a special feature and giveaway for you today! My former 5th grade teacher (how fun is that?!) Mary Lee runs an Etsy shop called The Purple Carrot featuring unique handmade books, vintage items, and hand sewn items. Take a look!

I LOVE this owl backpack! How adorable are these?!
This is one of her handmade books. She has blank journals, catechism books for children, and children's sermon notebooks.
Here's a better view of the binding. I love how unique it is and that it is designed to lay flat when opened. 
I love the beads on the binding of this journal! Such a nice touch! 
This teal chevron pattern is my favorite! I bought the journal version of this book to document little moments and conversations with my kids. It will be a great keepsake for our family!
The sermon notebooks are such a great idea! Perfect for engaging kids and keeping their attention in church as they get older. 
This catechism book is so pretty! She carries the catechism books in 3 different catechism versions to suit your needs. 
I thought these clothing hanger tags were a great idea! Have your kids pick out their outfits for the week, label them for each day of the week, then have them hanging in the closet to make the mad dash out the door goes smoother!
Check out all of her items at The Purple Carrot!

Mary Lee was so generous and is giving one of YOU a book of your choice up to $20! To enter, take a look at her Etsy shop, then come back and comment here or on my facebook page and let me know what's your favorite item in her shop. Giveaway will close on Friday night and the winner will be announced on Saturday! Be sure to like The Purple Carrot on facebook to stay up to date on new products! 


  1. I love keeping connections with people like that from my life! I am friends with several of my teachers on Facebook! :) Her ETSY page is super cute.. the stuff, I mean! :) ~ I think since I'm starting to cook some things here at the house, and TRYING to be better about making our own things to save some money, I'd probably say that her blank journals appeal to me the most. Then, I can hand write some favorite recipes as I come across them and be able to hand that down to my children. I know I can always do the electronic thing, but one of my very favorite wedding gifts was from my cousin. She gave me a copy of one of our mawmaw's recipes (she passed away when I was in the 8th grade), all in her handwriting! It's laminated and hangs on my kitchen freezer door. <3

  2. I love that! So special! And I love your recipe book idea! Btw, I miss your face!

    1. You are sweet! <3 <3 I may get one of those cool journals anyway! :op Congrats to Julie!

  3. The owl backpacks are so cute! But I do love a good journal :)
