What is better than watching young, creative minds craft something beautiful? At Nova, we’re all about creativity, and for this year’s Easter festivities we have plenty of craft kits and toys that will allow your children to be artistic and imaginative. Check out our online catalog featuring the best of the best for Spring. Whether they’re coming up with a new way to decorate an Easter egg or inventing a story about the creatures in your backyard, children can make these spring time activities entirely their own.

One of our favorites this spring is Simon’s Stable.  Made in Poland, this charming wooden stable will inspire hours of outdoor play. With a loft, a manger and two stalls, it will keep cattle warm on chilly spring nights. For those with fairy friends, the German-made Forest Tree House is the perfect Easter gift. This whimsical structure will be home to all the gnomes and fairy folk your children can imagine. They can even adjust the tree house to the liking of its guests.    

Nova Natural would like to give one lucky winner a $50 eGift Card! For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post. Comments are closed and the winner is Paige, who commented, “Oh wow my girls would love that stable and the egg dyes look great too. Definitely going to have to check out their catalog.”

Pipsticks {giveaway!}

This weekend’s giveaway is from Pipsticks, our favorite little sticker club!

In Mo’s words:

It’s been a super exciting few months for Pipsticks! We moved the headquarters of our subscription sticker club from the 600sf cottage behind our house to a huge space with retail!

Since November, we’ve added new team members, created products for our one-stop-sticker-shop, and designed more of our own stickers to include in our monthly subscription packs. We’ve put our four kids to work too, painting the new studio space and laying tiles on the weekend.

Not only has our Kids Sticker Club grown, but our Pro Sticker Club is huge, with subscribers all over the world (people no longer need to steal their kids’ or grandkids’ stickers!).

PipsticksJune-001

Pipsticks has grown into such a warm, creative, and diverse community, and I’m always so impressed by the outpouring of love for the subscription (as a busy mom I so appreciate when people take the time to send happy messages!). I just read the following from different members of our sticker club this morning:

“Dear Mo, I Love getting my stickers each month!!!! It makes my whole day!! I love sending notes to friends and family and having all these new stickers makes it so much more fun!! Outstanding job girl!!!”

“I got my sister and my daughter Pipsticks subscriptions for Christmas. They were both thrilled and amazed and excited for the next one to come. I was impressed with the selection and adorableness of all of it all! The packaging was a hit and they loved the postcard that already had a stamp that they could send to each other. I don’t know how it could be made any better but cannot wait to see what is next.”

“Dear Mo, I’m a nearly-50-year-old man with a newly-found sticker obsession. (I blame it on the re-discovery of the pleasure of a paper planner.) I come home from work in my suit and tie, feeling the weight of my professional world on my shoulders, and I can’t wait to pull out my stickers, sift through them, and think about what pages I’ll use them on in my planner, or what kinds of collections I’ll create in my little sticker book. You and Pipsticks totally rock, Mo. I’m telling everyone to develop a sticker obsession and feed it with Pipsticks.”
