Yes, this is a blog about all things kid-friendly, but every once and awhile, MP posts about something with fabulous Maine moms in mind. That’s why today’s giveaway features a stunning necklace and earrings from Minka. MP discovered this stylish Kennebunkport boutique and gallery while scouting for 48 Hours.

ImageMinka is filled with gorgeous, handmade jewelry and leather bags designed by Michelle Larochelle. Her partner, artist Christopher Larochelle, creates the ethereal paintings displayed in the shop. You’ll also find Maine made gifts for yourself or someone you love, like body care, stationery, and T-shirts for adults and children. (more…)

Every so often, MP tells the kids she wishes she were an octopus. Just think of all the things a parent could accomplish with 8 arms! You can imagine MP’s delight when she came across this Octopus Wrangling tee. Designer Christopher Larochelle of Minka in Kennebunkport says he likes childlike images with a little weight to them. With that idea in mind, he created this playful t-shirt for kids and adults.

Minka’s T-shirts are American-made, 100% cotton, and they’re printed locally using environmentally friendly ink. What’s not to love?
