The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New by Marty Machowski My rating: 5 of 5 stars “The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New” is a 224 page, illustrated systematic theology primer geared for “children”, but as I was going through the book, I felt that this was more than just a children “primer”, but a book that…

Simple Festive Wreath, Freckle and Wulff  //  7. Winter Citrus Wreath, Design*Sponge  //  8. Seeded Eucalyptus Wreath, Terrain  //  9. Spruce Forest Wreath, Terrain  //  10. DIY Holiday Wreath, Style Me Pretty

The 10 Great series is no stranger to holiday inspiration. Last year, I posted 10 Great Holiday Cocktails and 10 Great Christmas Cookie Recipes. The year before, I shared 10 Great Holiday Wrapping Ideas and 10 Great Holiday Craft Projects. Most recently, I have had my eye on a very specific part of the holiday decor genre – the wreath – so it only seemed natural to share my 10 favorite finds with you guys.

There is something about hanging a wreath during this time of year that feels especially comforting to me. My mom used to hand make all of our wreaths growing up (and often, still does), so maybe that’s what I find so appealing about them. I also like that they’re sort of a sweet symbol of welcoming when they’re hanging on front doors, and that they can so subtly add a hint of the season to an indoor space without being overwhelming. I’m not completely sure if I’ll buy a simple wreath this year and add my own decorations, or if I’ll make something from scratch, but regardless, I’ll be using the 10 gorgeous wreath designs you see here as inspiration. I hope you find them inspiring for your own holiday wreath plans well.

GIVEAWAY // Win 2 Customized Belts from Gells!

Our regular readers might remember when we teamed up with our pals at Gells for a giveaway last spring. The giveaway was really popular, and we love the company and their mission so much (not to mention that they have grown in the best of ways over the year), so we decided to do it again for the holidays!

For those who aren’t familiar, Gells (pronounced “jellz”) is a small business founded on the belief that you can operate a for-profit company with philanthropy at heart. Husband and wife team Ashley and Richard (who happen to have a combined twenty years of business experience ranging from marketing to finance to fashion) created the company as part of a longtime shared dream. With their mutual appreciation for well-made, casual apparel, they designed a classic, colorful belt intended to “gel your outfit together” as their signature product, and made it their mission to support various charities through the belts’ sales. Pretty great, right? (And I once again have to mention how much I love their logo, which is a rendering of their beloved family pet Can-Can, who lost her battle to canine cancer at a young age. Canine cancer research is one of the areas to which Gells donates.)

Since our last Gells giveaway, the company has expanded to include kids sizes and customization via embroidery on their signature belts. Their kid size belts (which are adorable) are available in ages 0-2 and 3-5. And the embroidery options include names, monograms, and more in several fonts and virtually any color. (I’m eyeing the kid’s navy belt with Essley’s name embroidered on it in white. So cute!)

The Gells signature belt is available in six colors and three adult sizes, as well as two kid’s sizes. Each belt color represents a different charity. Donations from the purchase of a navy belts go to Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation, purple goes to the National Canine Cancer Foundation, royal blue goes to the Arthritis National Research Foundation, hunter green goes to Thanks USA, pink goes to the Breast Cancer Alliance, and donations from the purchase of red belts is divided equally among the charities. We love this so much.

And now for the best part! One lucky Bubby and Bean reader will win a set of two of Gells’ signature belts, in your choice of color and adult or kids sizes, along with the option to customize each belt with a name, monogram, or symbol (anchor or moon and star)! Gells will work directly with the winner to choose from four different fonts and their endless thread colors, so you’ll get the exact belts you want. (Total value of $ 58 to $ 74. Please note that pink is currently sold out.)


To enter, just use the form below.  There are several ways to enter.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

This giveaway will run through December 9th, 2015 and is open to Bubby and Bean readers worldwide. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced here shortly after. 

Thanks again to Gells for giving our readers the chance to win two of their super cool customized belts! And here’s some more good news: Gells is offering Bubby and Bean readers 25% off all belts from now until December 31st with code BUBBYANDBEAN. Woohoo!

The Adventures of Chef Big Dog

Now that our Puppy Up events have winded down for the season, I’m up in CT helping out a friend with her food truck and it’s been quite an experience so far.
I’ve cooked for farmer’s markets, festivals, and for hundreds of families and friends I’ve stayed with throughout our journey but the food truck thing is a whole nother level. 
I’ll be sharing my culinary adventures, how and why YBD became CBD, and what’s next in 2016 at www.chefbigdog.com   

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES
