Shannybeebo: Little Things to Make You Smile {Giveaway!} ***Giveaway Now Closed***

I’ve talked before about my attempts to be more eco-friendly – taking reusable bags to the store, considering the benefits of cloth diapers, and using stationary that’s made on 100% recycled paper.  I’m not always the epitome of “being green”, but I give it my best try.  While it’s easy for me to remember to be green while at the supermarket, I sometimes forget about being green when I shop for gifts.  There’s so many great recycled, upcycled, and vintage items out there that I overlook when gift giving or just shopping for myself.  Recycling and upcycling gives new life to something that otherwise would have been discarded.  That’s something I can really get behind.  So when I found Shannybeebo on Etsy, I knew I had found a little slice of heaven.

With a belief that things can and should be reused, Shannon from Shannybeebo mixes recycled and upcycled items with vintage favorites.  While her handmade recycled and upcycled clocks take centered stage, Shannybeebo has something for everyone – purses, scarves, picture frames, and so much more..  Her items are handmade and take hours, if not days to create, just for you.  Her creations are good for the Earth and one of a kind.  Each one is a conversation starter and you can feel good about your purchase because it is fulfilling a bigger goal of being kind to Mother Earth…and it doesn’t hurt that they are beautiful.

Shannybeebo is always open to suggestions and custom orders, so your creativity can really run wild.  Exceptions are not just allowed, they are encouraged.  Need to find a clock to match that elusive shade of paint?  She can make something to match or compliment it.  Need a scarf to match your favorite outfit?  No problem.  Unique jewelry for a special event?  She’s got you covered.

When looking through her store, the first thing that grabs your attention are the clocks, like this magazine beaded clock.  This clock is made with a 12″ vinyl record, rhinestones, a quartz clock, and over 300 hand rolled magazine beads.  Yep, that’s right – 300.  Hand rolled.  Wow.  Love this!

Or this sunburst clock, made from 24 upcycled and rolled magazine pages.
Or this melted and molded vinyl painted clock.  This one is my personal favorite of all of her clocks.But like I said, Shannybeebo is more than just clocks.  There’s jewelry, frames, scarves, purses, and more.  Like this cute necklace:Or maybe a purse?How about some colorful domino magnets?Personally, I like this peacock hair clip.  It reminds me of Hazeline’s halloween costume – good memories!And now for the best part – Shannon from Shannybeebo has been so gracious to offer one lucky reader this shabby chic painted record clock:Sure to be a conversation starter, this clock is made from a 12” melted and molded vinyl LP record.  It is then painted in brilliant hues, which will liven any room.

Wait!  That’s not all!  There will be two winners for this contest, one will receive the clock and another will win a black felt purse of their choice from Shannybeebo!  Like, maybe this one?Well, you don’t have to agree with my recommendations.  You can pick any black purse that you would like, if you win!
