September's Give Away

A while back I won.
Here are the girls sporting the spoils.
Funny that you can barely see the brown headband
when it blends in with the hair on Bella's head.

I was so happy to get some
of Heather's signature pieces.
So very cute.

{keep reading for the give-away}

Like oh my gosh!
(Heather will appreciate the valley girl talk
she loved the 80's)

I was even more delightfully surprised when 
she didn't just send me one as promised
in the give-away,
but one for each of the girls.
Woo hoo. Bonus.

The giveaway was hosted
on a blog called scraps and scribbles.

Heather's facebook page is called

Go and like her, just to be nice.
Her crocheted stuff is awesome.
Check out her little cell phone purses.
They would be a great Christmas gift for that pre-teen
that only wants clothes and wants to pick them out herself
leaving her with only some cash under the tree.
I know from experience.
Get a little purse for the gift cards and cash
so big sister won't be bummed out on Christmas Day.


Now on to the giveaway.
I know that's the part you really care about.

I made friends with Shannon in Nashville
a few years back
when visiting Kristy Faye.
KFaye is one of my besties from high school days.
Shannon is now KFaye's new bestie.
And Shannon is uber creative.
She sells her stuff
creativelyrecycledbyshannon
on facebook.

She makes cute things from recycled materials.

She has single rose clips for $5 (headband $7), 
triple rose for $9 (headband $11), 
adjustable rings for $5, 
Hairbows for $5, 
and necklaces start at $12.....

But guess what?
Shannon has already made something
that she has graciously offered
to one of my readers for
FREEEEEEEEE.

The giveaway is a triple rose alligator clip that can be used in hair, on a headband or even on a shirt as an accessory as well as a matching adjustable ring.  Both items are made out of shirts.


All you have to do is like Shannon's page on facebook.
and then leave a comment here.
3 clicks, I made it easy for you.

I hate those giveaways that tell you to do about 20 bazillion things.
That's not a giveaway. That's slave labor.
But really you have to go like Shannon
cause it's her giveaway.

If you don't have facebook, just leave a comment.

I am double dipping and this give away 
is counting as my game this month.
So in your comment give me a link
to a craft that you've made that you are the most proud of.
Or if you are like me, the least proud of. tee hee
If you have no online presence,
then just tell me about it.
Just try to make me laugh, will ya?

I thought it would be so cute to send Shannon 
some of Caroline's outgrown clothes 
and pay her to make me some keepsake flowers.

She would probably be game for something like that.
You can e-mail her directly
shansharris at gmail

Anyhow, I will be leaving the give-away open all month
and then will randomly pick a winner from all the comments
first thing in October.
Me screaming: OCTOBER, how did you get here so fast?

If you really want to be nice,
you can tell your friends.
I never tell my friends because I
don't like to lower my chances for the win.
Rude, I know,
but strategic, yes.
So, don't tell your friends about the giveaway,
but do tell them about Shannon and Heather.
They deserve a shout-out or two.
