Caitlin of The Twenty-Fifth Year and 2526 Studios offers the perfect pairing; After the pairing of peanut butter and jelly, no two elements have gone together so well as writing and coffee. Two personalized notebooks, a handmade coffee sleeve and DIY tumbler will get you through plenty of afternoons when the inspiration kicks in.

Micki, the beauty who shared her story which brought us here, has quite a talent for photography herself. She is offering four photography bundles for the raffle; THREE 5X7 Print sets [Europe, Chicago, & Nature] and ONE hand developed 8×10 black and white nature photo


Theme Raffle #3 – Yummy 1 is offers a group of homemade desserts to bring a smile on your face.

yummy 1 label


Savvy Julie [they don’t call her Savvy for nothing; This girl has got it going on in the kitchen!]  is baking a batch of her super fudgy brownies. She describes them as “SO fudgy. SO cakey. SO rich. SO perfect.” Sounds simply  Delightful, no?!  These brownies are swoon-worthy!




DSCN4786Colleen of The Lunchbox Diaries is spreading the joy by sharing a batch of peanut butter cookies with hugs.  Let’s face it; the fights we face in life are called a fight for a reason.  Sometimes we need a hug to get through the hardest parts.  Other times, we may need a cookie.  Doesn’t this seem like the perfect combination?


cookie bars, straw bars, quinoa 109

Andrea of Can You Stay for Dinner is a talent in the kitchen, that’s a fact.  [you never have to ask me twice if I’m staying for dinner at her place!] Her blondies with chunks of dark chocolate, white chocolate, coconut, and toasted pecans seem too good to be true. Sweet and chunky with the chewiest, gooey-est centers. Yes, please!


evan brownies


Evan may be known as The Wannabe Chef, but if you ask me, he’s no wannabe.  His recipe creations are to live for and these Outrageous Triple Chocolate Brownies are proof.  These treats are gluten-free [not like you can tell by the taste!] and can be dairy-free on request, if you’d prefer.



Theme Raffle #4 – Yummy 2 – there was so much sweetness donated to the raffle that we simply had to break it into two lots!

yummy 2 label


Julie’s offering a batch of her secret recipe Savvy Scones to one VERY LUCKY raffle winner.  Julie has shared several scone recipes on Savvy Eats, but the original “Savvy Scone” recipe remains a secret for now.  WARNING: These scones are said to “rock a world” and “change a life.”





My dear friend Jessica from How Sweet It Is knows how to deliver the most drool-worthy recipes in the blogosphere.  I’ve never met a How Sweet recipe I didn’t LOVE, and with a name like “Better Than Crack Brownies” how could you doubt the power of these delicious treats?




With a blog title such as Sweet Tooth Sweet Life, Courtney strongly believes that there is always room for dessert in life!  I couldn’t agree more!  The baker extraordinaire is sharing a batch of Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies. “These cookies really are perfect. They have a similar consistency to a peanut butter cookie: slightly crumbly on the outside, yet moist and chewy on the inside.”


cake batter blondies

The fabulous and friendly Gracie of Girl Meets Life swears that these Cake Batter Blondies are one of the best things she’s ever eaten.  EVER.  And honestly, don’t you agree that sprinkles just make EVERYTHING better?
