200th post & a giveaway!!!!!

Well, I did it - and in a surprisingly short amount of time (less than a year!) I made it to my 200th post! Since I'm working on generating more traffic to my blog, I teamed up with a friend to do a giveaway! First a bit about the giver of the giveaway!


Cara Delight is a WAHM to 3 sweet children ages 9, 4 and 15months. She has an amazing talent for sewing & embroidery. Her business is Bubbles & Bows Boutique and she focuses on custom items for mom and baby - everything from onesies & growth charts to cloth diapers & bags to put them in! She started her business in July because she loves to sew (she's been sewing for 16 years!) and create new products. Her business allows her a creative outlet while providing income to ensure her ability to stay at home.

Feel free to check out her site and do a little Christmas shopping while you're there!

Now, what you're waiting for! A GIVEAWAY!!! My first here and I'm SO excited about it! Cara has graciously offered one of her oh-so-cute Travel Wipes Cases to one of my readers! Not only will you receive this handy item - it will be named after you (or the recipient) as well!! (The Travel Wipes Case shown is a representation of the case being given away. The Winner will be able to choose their fabric.)




It's easy to win! But, I need you to do a couple of things for me! To enter you simply respond to this post with the following:
*An email address (or blog address)
*Visit Bubbles & Bows Boutique and tell me what your favorite item is
OR
*Tell me a topic you would like for me to "tackle"

For an EXTRA entry:
*Blog about this giveaway (respond to this post, in a new comment, letting me know you did so, linking back to the blog)

This give away will end at 9pm, October 31st, 2008. I will use random.org (number generator) to pick a winner.
**email addresses will ONLY be used to contact the winner.**

I really like the shirt that says "Only Child (crossed out) Big Sister". Since we're expecting our second, this would be perfect for our daughter!

The Chilsons said...

I could always take another diaper, I would love to have Lydia one with her name on it! That would be cool...so I guess that is my fav item on the web site. And my blog is itsinthewater.blogspot.com

Our web address is: http://www.thecornelisonfamily.blogspot.com/.

It was tough picking out my favorite item. It's a toss up between the Taggy Blankets and the Brown and Turqoise Diaper Bag. (Is it okay to have two?)

200th post. Very exciting!!!

ronandwhit said...

I blogged about you :). Here it is http://thecornelisonfamily.blogspot.com/2008/10/giveaway.html. I will really need a wipe holder soon.

I blogged about it, I don't think anyone reads my blog though, LOL! Unless my friend does and doesn't comment. Oh well, it's a good way to vent.

I like the Brown & Turquoise Diaper Bag from Bubbles & Bows. It would segue nicely to a regular purse or tote. Thanks to you & to your friend for offering up that adorable wipes case. I'm due any day w/ baby #4 (gender is a surprise).

I'd like to see you write more on your VBAC and why you chose one. I'm a big advocate of natural birth and VBACs, and I love to read empowering success stories such as yours. It's always interesting to see what motivates moms to try to achieve a different result the next time around. I'm happy for you that you achieved yours.

My contact info is in my Google profile.

Joy said...

First, love your friend's creativity!

I LOVE the "OOps, they did it again! I'm gonna be a BIG SISTER" because we're trying for a third baby (we have two girls).
