GIVEAWAY – Happy 6th Blogoversary Cardigan Empire: Celebrating with a Shop & Apparel

6 years ago this month, I placed Cardigan Empire in the cradle of the world wide web.  Birthed from my fertile heart, she was my first born.  A balm to my body image, devastated by 5 years of infertility.   I hoped she could also help others.  Half a dozen years later, she’s befriended thousands.  I’ve added three fleshy siblings to our family through adoption and biology, a college class, a youtube channel, and now in 2014, we add clothes.

Through a collaboration with Shop & Apparel, meet the newest addition to the Cardigan Empire family, the Hello Cardi.  (I also included a few more of my current Shop & Apparel pieces for your fashion enjoyment).  But scroll to the bottom for the giveaway details.

Trick Connections – Happy Halloween

Our first family Halloween Coco, Andrew, festooned our tribe in the manner of Indians.  Our 2nd family halloween we assumed roles in Annie (Coco-Annie, Levi-Daddy Warbucks, Reachel-Miss Hannigan, Andrew-Rooster).  Our third family October 31st was celebrated as woodland creatures.  And last All Hallow’s Eve: art (Coco-Frida Kahlo, Levi-Andy Warhol, Oscar-Picasso, Me-Georgia O’Keefe, Andrew-Van Gogh).
IMG_3846This year I benevolently allowed Coco and Levi to select their own costumes.  But I may not have been able to surrender the family theme.
IMG_3864In order to stay united yet honor individuality, we had to somehow connect a kitty and a Rescuebot Transformer.
IMG_3866So we added Devin Supertramp, Lindsey Stirling, called a Kitty a Cat Video, a transformer an Unboxing Video,
IMG_3881
and asked Oscar to brand us.
