Mix & Mingle: Grey Dot Co. {Giveaway}


We have such a fun day planned for you! We have the most darling little shop that we want to share with you today in our latest installment of our Mix & Mingle series. You are simply going to adore our friend Angie and her online store The Grey Dot Company

First, let's introduce you to Angie - owner and creator of The Grey Dot Company. 


Isn't she absolutely adorable?!? 


And if she isn't adorable enough, check out her crazy cute family!

This totally makes us want a few more to add to our own crazy crew. :) 

We sat down and asked Angie to give us a little inside scoop about her and her fabulous shop.

Tell us a little about yourself. 
My name is Angie Hansen and I am the designer of The Grey Dot Company.  I have been married for 16 years to my wonderful husband who keeps me laughing and we have 5 kids; Olivia 13, Harrison 11, Maxwell and Isabella 9 and Stella 4.  I graduated with a degree in interior design and drafted house plans for a little while.  I have been crafty as long as I can remember.  I had a neighbor while growing up who would cut out almost an entire "tole painting" book for me and I would go to town painting.  My love for designing has never stopped.  I am a type of person who will teach themselves how to do anything and won't stop till I figure it out.




Describe your style. 
 would have to say my style is a little bit of everything.  I love to mix different textures together.  I love happy colors and I am not afraid to mix patterns and designs.  If it looks good then it works for me.


What is your favorite summer activity? To do with the kids? 
I love summer and no schedules.  You can find me enjoying summer nights sitting outside on our patio enjoying the perfect Idaho weather.  Our family loves to watch movies outside in our backyard and make s'mores. We love a good road trip to visit new places.  Our family has Lagoon amusement park season passes so you will find me screaming on Cannibal or sitting by the pool. 


If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Oh man this is a hard one.  Do I choose something healthy, or go all out and getting fat isn't a factor!  But I'd probably have to say grape flavored zipfizz.  I know that's not food but it's what I always have in my hand.  I used to be a diet coke addict and that would have been my answer, but I've been diet coke free for 2 years and zipfizz is what I live on.  But if I had to pick a food I'd say cookies and cream ice cream (if that counts as a food).


What inspires you as a designer? 
I love to make something from nothing.  A thought turns into a creation.  It is a way I am able to express myself without words.  I find it satisfying to create things that make other people happy and turn a plain space into a happy space.  


Now that you've fallen in love with Angie, let's take a peek at her shop. 

The Grey Dot Company is filled with so many fabulous home decor and party items that just appeal to our southern hearts. 


With summer in full swing we absolutely love this little Lemonade sign


Her printables are so versatile, and lend themselves to a variety of uses. We though this "Bushel & Peck" print could be used both in your everyday home decor or even as an adorable addition for a nursery!


We love everything about this little "Love My Tribe" print
Gold always speaks to us. Always. 


Her custom "Babies Don't Keep" line is one of our absolute favorites, and makes for a great gift for a new arrival. 


Angie makes gorgeous banners, and we love some of her latest creations. 


When we saw all of Angie's amazing banners, we could not resist having one made for our favorite holiday. 


These 4th of July banners are the perfect patriotic touch to our home decor, and we can't wait to pull them out again for some of our other upcoming events and holidays we have planned - We're looking at you Summer Olympics!


The banners are exceptionally made, and have such fun little details. 


We adore these cute little pom poms she adds to each one. Almost every banner Angie creates has a cute little detail like this - poms or tassels. Such a great tiny little touch that makes such a big impact. 


They come in a wide variety of options and we love each and every one!


With their durable canvas material we know that these will be able to endure what ever patriotic celebration we have prepared for it for years to come. 


And because we love these banners so much we've decided to partner with Angie at The Grey Dot Company to give one away!

  2. Love these banners!!! They are so amazing and versatile. If I had to choose one, which is a hard decision to make, if have to say "the home of the free because of the brave" because it is so true and can be used from Memorial Day all the way through Labor Day! I just love how summer is always celebrating the brave men and women who have given it their all for our freedoms.
