4 generations here. My Grandma Rea, My mom, Me and Stella (who wasnt quite happy about getting more pictures taken)

So... When I was about 6 months pregnant with Stella, I found this adorable crochet book for animals and asked my grandma if she would be willing to make Stella the animals in the book. She thought they were great, and now Stella has a huge stash of crochet animals made with love for her by her great-grandma, something we hope to keep forever and she can pass down to her kids one day. Grandma loved these animals so much, that she kept making them, and now has this huge stash of her own! She makes several animals a day, She's incredibly talented and these are easy-peasy for her. She has found another book, with more animals, and also creates animals from pictures, she's that good! So, keep scrolling down for my first ever giveaway, featuring my grandma's animals!

Hi friends!

Happy girl!! Stella loved visiting with her great grandparents!

We think Stella has a lot of my grandpa's looks in her, I see it in the nose, and face kinda... 

This is her new thing, feeling faces, she loves grabbing chins and mouths and noses

I'm pretty sure were all laughing because Abby had just licked Stella's face, it's always pretty hilarious :)
SO... Now for our first giveaway info!!! As you've seen me post many times, particularly here, and in some pictures here ,  These little stuffed animals are awesome! Stella loves her's, she'll stare at them for every, and is now holding them, chewing on them, and knocking them over. They are so fun!! My grandma is thinking of starting her own Etsy shop to sell these fun and baby safe animals, so I thought I'd do a little feedback to see if there would be interest in them, and what better place to ask for feedback than on my blog?! So, she has graciously agreed to make either 2 small custom animals, or one larger custom sock monkey! What a great first giveaway!! 

*These animals are machine washable, and filled with regular cotton batting. She uses hard eyes on the animals and sock monkeys for kids 4 years old and older, babies to 4 years get good 'ol crocheted eyes, so no choking hazards for little ones. 

Here are the 4 ways you can enter:

1. Leave a comment telling me about your child's favorite animal, and colors (2 max), and why they would love one of Grandma's Animals.

2. Follow A Snapshot of Our Life publicly on google friend connect (leave a comment letting me know you already follow or are a new follower)

3. 'Like' A Snapshot of Our Life in Facebook (leave a comment letting me know you 'like' us)

4. Let your friends know about our giveaway by posting a link to this giveaway on your own blog, or link up to our Facebook with this giveaway, be sure to let me know when you do. 

This Giveaway will close on July 18th, 10 days from now. 1 winner will be chosen and will get to choose their favorite animals to be made in their choice of colors. It will take a week or two to receive the animals, since they are being custom made for you.

Jess they are so cute!! Carter would love one! but being that he is not here yet he doesn't have a favorite animal or color. His nursery theme however is birds with green's and teals/blues. I love that they are homemade and have no crazy chemicals that so many toys have these days!

My nephew is currently in love with rats, so he would probably want one of those if possible. His favorite colors are grey and dirty (he means cream!). I adore all of the animals but the giraffe has to be my favorite.

Declan sure would love a giraffe or hippo. He loves giraffes, especially his sophie doll. I love these. Wish my gramma made cool stuff like that, she is deffinitely more of a shopper. Your blog is very fun Jess, love all the pics.
