100th post celebration and give-away!


How did it happen so fast? My 100th post came and went earlier this week. I almost let it slip by unnoticed, but it feels too significant not to celebrate it with you. In recognition of the many new friends I've gotten to know through maya*made and all of your wonderful support over the last six months, I'd like to thank you with a little give-away. If you leave a comment on this post before Saturday August 2nd, I will put your name into a random drawing for a maya*made mystery box...a little assortment of hand-made and vintage surprises! The winner will be announced on Monday, August 4th.

I'm off to a big family reunion tomorrow and hope you all have a great rest of the week. I'll leave you with my favorite celebratory summer drink: a maya*made twist on a mojito...a mayita! This is a very flexible and forgiving blender drink...experiment with proportions that feel right to you.
Blend:
-freshly frozen fruit (peaches or strawberries in season are my favorite)
-handful of fresh mint leaves
-juice of one lime
-generous splash of seltzer
-simple syrup to taste

Add a shot of rum for any grown-ups in the mood! Pin It
