A really fun new SPONSOR…….and GIVEAWAY!!

Ooooooh, you’re in for a treat.
This new shop makes me smile.
A lot.
Alyssa, from Pip and Bean, is the creative mastermind behind these darling and playful super-hero-capes.  She is kept busy as a mom of 2 little girls, but loves to create reversible little capes on the side.  Alyssa’s capes have been used for all sorts of reasons and themes and her ideas seem endless.  Each cape is reversible and attaches around the neck with a velcro closure, perfect for a quick release if necessary.
But enough talk, let me just show you how knock-your-socks-off-cute these capes are.
And keep in mind, you can customize your cape just how you’d like it……and include your child’s favorite super hero.
Is your child into Buzz Lightyear or Star Wars?
Or maybe they are crazy about Wonder Pets like my kids are…
Do you have a dinosaur kid at home?  Just check out those scales that are popping out.
Or maybe you’re thinking about Halloween coming up.  
Why not mix your child’s love for super hero capes, with his/her costume this year?  
Quick and simple.
Or wait, we all know how fun it is to plan a child’s birthday party.  
And how about instead of stuffing party bags full of miscellaneous items, send a cape home with each child to match the theme of the party.  
Each child will receive hours and hours of fun from their take-home party gift.
Pip and Bean also creates capes that fit the whole family.  Great for family fun or even Halloween parties. 
And if you’d like to customize your own cape, there are even plain capes available over at Pip and Bean.  You can add your design or even let your child create their own super hero insignia.
And then, just let those kids fly, soar, and save the world.
What an adorable and fun-filled collection from Pip and Bean, that is sure to ignite great imaginative play in any child.
And yes, Alyssa has decided to do a great giveaway here for one of you lucky readers.  
She is giving away a 5-pack of plain capes (valued at $52.00) that would allow you to distribute capes at your next super hero birthday party………or just save them for gifts for your kids, neighbors, and/or nieces/nephews.  Each cape is double sided like pictured above, with a velcro closure.   
Alyssa will include 2 girl, 2 boy, and 1 neutral color scheme for the giveaway.
Who wouldn’t love that?
Here’s how to enter to win:
  • Visit Pip and Bean here, check out the shop and browse around for a bit, and then choose your very favorite item(s) over on the site.  Then come back and let me know what you like, in one comment.      
  •  Be sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you if you’ve won.

That’s it.

 **Not sure how to leave a comment? 

Make sure you are at the Make It and Love It site (not reading from an email or google reader) and scroll down to the bottom of this post.  You will see in smaller print, “Posted By Ashley”, then a time, and then the word “Comments” with a number by it.  That number signifies how many people have left comments.  Click on the word “Comments” and a new screen will pop up.  On the right side, there is an empty white box where you can leave a comment, enter your info below it, and then publish your comment.  Your comment will appear at the bottom of the list of comments.  That’s it.
Any questions? Email me at makeitandloveit@gmail.com

    How to pick from all the cute capes? I know you said to pick on, but I just can't. First, I'd have to pick the Star Wars cape. My son is 7 and has been a Star Wars fanatic since 3. Second would be the monkey one and finally the girls' pirate cape is adorable.

    It would be so nice to have actual capes for my 3 boys to play with. I'm done rubberbanding their blankies around their necks. I think the ring bearer cape is awesome. Anyone willing to have their ring bearer wear a cape at the wedding is even more awesome. What MY boys would love though, is to have velcro or snaps on the cape with interchangable patches. Wouldn't that be great!?
