Time to deck the halls, people! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, this week’s Happy HeART Giveaway is my official online kickoff to the holiday season (stay tuned – lots of gorgeous gifts coming your way in future weeks!). 

And what better way to celebrate the season than by helping a budding young artist!? Ten-year-old Sara is launching her entrepreneurial career this season. She’s a little young for flipping burgers, but wants to have money for gadgets and goodies. Since Sara has a creative spark in her, Sara’s parents helped her start an etsy shop called Crazy Cat Com. It’s truly a family affair; Sara and her mom, Michele, handle the design/illustration elements while Dad oversees printing and assembly (Rudolph’s red metallic nose shines from the inside!). What a creative way to bond as a family over a common goal!

This week, you could win a set of 10 of these adorable handmade Christmas cards (value of $30). Get a jump start on your holidays and celebrate an artistic family all at once! To enter, simply answer this question:
