a giveaway.

did your ears perk up?

Well they should, because this is a giveaway you won't want to miss.  First off, your chances of winning are really good.  I usually try to win giveaways on blogs with 100+ readers.  You've got to figure on this blog you've got a 1 in 10ish chance of winning.  Those are good odds!  

Second, it's an amazing product.  My friend Heidi makes these festive birthday banners, and just started her own etsy shop.  I am giving away 1 of her banners.  Any one of your choosing.   They are also great for birthday or baby shower gifts.  


Third, not only are these banners made with quality materials, and the love and patience of a true seamstress, but one of my favorite banners of Heidi's is made with fabric that my college roommate's sister, Allison, designed!  Did you catch all that?  You can also look at her fabric here.




So, may lady luck smile down on each of you.  
Leave a comment with your e-mail address and which banner you want from Heidi's shop (cogsmo, traffic jam, etc.), and the winner will be announced Monday morning.


*note*  Heidi does take custom orders with specific fabric or saying requests.  Prices may vary.

*note #2*  If you don't win, you should still seriously consider buying one.  Your children will LOVE it for may years to come.  Mine can't wait to wake up on their birthday morning and see it hanging in the kitchen.

Okay lady...I am leaving a comment but I never win anything. However, I am crossing my fingers, no "double crossing" my fingers and hoping to win!!! I remember one of your birthday posts with a pic of one of those cute banners and thinking you were so fun and cool. I loved it then and I love it now! I like either cogsmo or traffic jam, too cute!

How cute are these?? My fave is Traffic Jam (I love the girly ones but I only have one girl and 4 boys, so it would get much more use for boys =))

Okay, so I don't read blogs until I hear about a giveaway. ;) I've never won a blog giveaway, so I would be a happy and deserving recipient.
