everyday is a holiday (+ a giveaway!) [closed]

If you aren't already familiar with Jenny and Aaron from Everyday is a Holiday you need to scoot over to their blog and shop right this second (well, finish this post, enter the giveaway and *then* scoot over ;) They are a super sweet duo who make pastel art confections on the Jersey shore (I have their artwork sprinkled all over my apartment -- including the apple pie painting in my outfit photos!) and they recently released their first book. I had the pleasure of getting a copy to test out one of their adorable DIY projects and I'm head over heels with how my first project turned out!

I made the Fauxbulous Keepsake Cake -- yup, you read that right. Faux. The cake in the picture above is fake! Doesn't it look delicious? I have to keep reminding myself it's not edible because it just looks so darn yummy. And it was so easy to whip it up! I think I might even make a couple more and have a display of faux cakes in my kitchen at all times. What a perfect kitchen decoration, right?!

All of the projects in the book are perfectly pastel, beautifully photographed and just so, so sweet. Jenny and Aaron did such an amazing job and I have secondhand giddiness, I'm just so excited for them! The book is available on amazon here! You can also try your luck at winning a copy below! :)

If you try out any projects from the book, make sure to post them on instagram with the hashtag #mixedmediamasterpieces so Jenny and Aaron can see your handiwork! :)
