OceanBelle Shop Review & GIVEAWAY!!


Happy Monday morning everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and are ready for more fun this week. We are starting the week off with a bang! I have a wonderful shop to share with you all AND a brand new GIVEAWAY!! YAY!

Not long ago I received a wonderful little ray of light in my mailbox from a great Etsy Shop called OceanBelle that has brightened up my entire craft space! {I'll tell you more about that later...}  

Right now, I want to introduce YOU to...


First of all, let me tell you that this is one of the most unique and beautiful shops I've seen on Etsy. You can tell just from the banner that this shop radiates serene and positive energy. This woman has got vision! I'm sure many of you are familiar with Dream Catchers, but have you ever seen a Tree of Hope?

Brandy, OceanBelle owner and creative genius behind these beautiful pieces explains it best:

"Here the Tree of Hope grows with each dream and wish you hold close. Let there always be water to carry your Hopes to the leaves and the sun. May there always be dreams to fill the roots as you continue in this adventure of life. Hung in a place with care, let it always remind you that even as the wind carries your Hopes to be heard, you must never give up and climb the mountains of life to make those Hopes and dreams yours."

Check out some of OceanBelle's beautiful Trees of Hope


See the bright, beautiful red quartz one at the top? It's a special edition tree called Red Leaves of Hope for Japan. 100% of proceeds from this tree go toward the Japan Relief Effort. That just warms my heart!


Here's the beautiful Tree that Brandy sent to me!

Isn't she beautiful??

"This 2" tree is made with Rhodonite chips. The roots are adorned with a blue Swarovski crystal bead (water), Rhodonite(wards off negativity), a silver picture frame (joy), wood bead (earth) and natural mini clothes pins (roots of each Hope)."  - Oceanbelle on Etsy

I absolutely LOVE it! The colors are phenomenal, and the attention to detail breathtaking. I have my business goals clipped to one root and our family goals clipped to the other root so I keep them front and center in my mind. You have to go check out her shop, there are so many varieties, you're sure to find something you love. But it's not all trees! Brandy also makes beautiful jewelry from natural stones as well...



So clearly you can see how talented Brandy is! Like many of us, she's a mom working hard on her business, but she's also a full-time student as well! I don't know how she does it. As if you didn't think she was wonder woman already, (shop, blog, philanthropist, mom, and student!) there's one more thing...

Brandy is so excited for you to come check out her shop that she has offered to GIVE AWAY this beautiful Rainbow Flourite Tree of Hope to one very lucky reader of The Little Birdie!!


This very special 2" tree is made with Rainbow Fluorite. The roots are adorned with a blue Swarovski crystal bead (water), Rainbow Fluorite (increases focus and concentration), a silver picture frame (joy), wood bead (earth) and natural mini clothes pins (roots of each Hope).

What's extra special about this Tree is it's a one-of-a-kind. That's right- made especially for one of you! Ready to enter? There are lots of ways to win, but don't forget to leave a separate comment for each entry competed!
