Well All for the Boys is 1 year old! Can you believe it? I wanted to do a big birthday week but I got sick, my oldest got sick, and well, life got in the way. But I didn’t want to miss giving YOU something for making our first year so amazing.

I want to introduce you to my friend Canela from Cinnamon Sticks Boutique. Canela makes amazing jewelry BY HAND. I overheard her at a conference the process she goes through to create one piece of jewelry and after that I don’t think she charges enough LOL! Learn more about her on her blog, Etsy site, or Big Cartel shop

I wear Cinnamon Sticks jewelry all the time and always get asked about it. I have some pieces with their names, or dates, or birthstones. I love wearing jewelry that means something to me (and the boys).

Here is just a selection of some of her amazing pieces. I love the stacking rings

Canela is so very generously donating a $50 gift certificate to use in her store to help us celebrate. So this one is for you! You deserve something too (or your wife or mom etc)

TO ENTER: Just leave a comment here (make sure you enter your email address when you add your name so I can contact you and get you in touch with Cinnamon Sticks) 1 comment per person please!

I realize this isn’t for boys but boys have moms, sisters, grandmas and a lot of them read here! I wanted to give something back to you.  Be sure to check out Cinnamon Sticks Boutique – and her FACEBOOK page!

  1. Awesome! The jewelry looks beautiful! And happy blog birthday!

  2. This is beautiful. My (soon to be) mother in law lost her wedding ring and was never able to replace it. I know she would love to have the stackable rings that have her children's names on them!

  3. I would love to win this as I love personalized jewelry

  4. I found Canela's shop on Etsy last spring around Mother's Day and LOOOOVE her jewelry. There are many "hand stamped jewelry" shops, but hers is by far the best!!!

  5. Happy Birtday!! Thanks for the giveaway. Such wonderful jewlery.

  6. So pretty! I love the birthstone stacking ring on the bottom! Happy Birthday to your blog… 🙂

  11. I love these! I agree, my most treasured jewlery is the stuff that reminds me of or is symbolic of my boys. 🙂

  12. I'm thinking this would be great for my mom for Mother's Day. . .but then again, I might get selfish and decide to keep it for myself 🙂 (BTW, I have four boys and one baby girl, so I love your blog.)
