Bloggy Giveaway!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button


I keep meaning to get in on this EVERY. YEAR. (Or quarterly, as it is.) This time, I'm doing it...even though it started on Monday, better late than never!

So, here's the dealio - I'm giving away one of my custom made birthday crowns. Pop on over to BlueJeanBaby and take a stroll through the gallery, then c'mon back and tell me what you liked the best. Yes, a totally shameless request for high praise, but it's my blog and I can be shameless if I want to!

This giveaway is open to one and all, but...

As an added bonus...since many of the Bloggy giveaways are open to US residents only, I'm sweetening the pot for my fellow Canucks! If you're a fellow Canadian blogger, in a separate comment leave me a link to your proudly Canadian blog, and the name of your hometown, and you'll not only be entered a 2nd time, but I'll also add you to my All Canadian Blogroll over there on the sidebar.

You can head back to Bloggy Giveaways for more Giveaway goodness!

Technically, the contest closes at the end of the day on the 1st, but realistically I won't be doing any drawing until we get back from our long weekend adventures, so if you sneak in after the 1st, I promise I won't tell!

I am VERY impressed! The crowns were sweet, but your quilts were amazing, the Rooster one has to be my most favorite of all. Do you plan on selling them too?

They are very cute and so well crafted. I'd love an S for my son when he turns 1 next spring. I'd love for him to have a special crown that he could wear every year. Thanks for sharing!

Tonya said...

Wow the crowns are precious! My son's 1st birthday is next month an you can't imagine the trouble I've been having finding a masculine party hat! So much so I have given up. I really hope to win on. I really like the polka dot blue pattern.

What a talent you have. The birthday crowns are my favorite. They are rare and you don't see them all over the Internet; hence why I love them all the more.

They're super fun! :) I like the "W" one the best or maybe the "L". Hrmmm. Do you make them in adult sizes? ;) You could make sets for the whole family! he he. Ok seriously, I'm rambling, but I do really like them and think I need one for Kiernan's bday.

Oh sure, and where does that leave me? A Canadian, with a blog, but being forced to live in the U.S. against her will (well kind of...I had to follow my husband here for work...grin). We are both from Saskabush, most recently from S'toon. All of our family still lives there and we go back as often as we can. When we can't, I have care packages of Goodhost Iced Tea, Coffee Crisp bars, and Smarties mailed to us.

My blog isn't hosted in Canada, but it definitely has its share of CanCon, including my token recipe for Nanaimo bars. You could visit it here, if you like: www.northofthe49.com (see, even the title is set up so that if we move, it can come with us).

Yours is the second Canadian blog I have found through the giveaways. I am still in touch with the other lady I found over a year or more ago, who actually lives outside of S'toon.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I'm not sure of the name but it said p7130003 at the top of the picture. It's brown and was on the bottom row. I would get an H on it.

Your crown and quilts are amazing.

Mom 2 To Boys said...

All of your stuff is lovely but I do LOVE the crowns. I really want to make crowns for my boys but I am not so crafty yet. Would love to win one! Thanks!

Lady_MSnow said...

I like the blue crown (that has the L) on it the best. They are so cute. :D

Anonymous said...

I like the crown with the flower and the crown with the hearts. Could these be made bigger for, say, me?

I'm from Halifax but don't have a blog. The crowns are cute and would make the special day even more special for the kids. I like the ones that the teddy bear had on.

Regina said...

These are all so great - I love the Polka Dot Blues the best - probably because my little guy is going on 4...

Not Canadian - just over the border into NY -

Glad you are feeling better!

flchen1 said...

Wow, you are one talented seamstress/designer! I'd almost be afraid to win because my kids would all fight over who would have the honor of choosing their favorite design. (I'd probably end up buying ones for the other two--you know how you can't make them share such a thing!)

Anyway, thanks again, and hope you're having a terrific week!

PS said...

I WOULD LOVE one of these for my son's birthday in September!! The blue and brown one with the W is adorable! Can you do it with a C?

Wehaf said...

Oh, I love the "perfect pair" bibs. Too cute! And your crowns are excellent; I love that the sizing is so flexible.

Thank you.

Jamie from fort lauderdale said...

I LOVE the crowns. what a great idea too!
It makes me wish I could sew and be creative like YOU!
I should have paid more attention in home ec class when I was in high school. I don't even know if they still offer sewing in school.

thanks for the chance to win!

I LOVE the signature quilt! What beautiful stuff! The cock-a-doodle-quilt without the rooster would be a fave, too.

I have 2 little girls with fall birthdays....this is a cute idea!

Suzanne said...

The one that you show with an "L", but with an "M" for my princess!

pj said...

really cute concept....way to go!!

Heather said...

I like the Purple? and blue crown with the L but with a J instead. I will soon have 2 little girls that start with J! We aren't from Canada but love it there and my boys both started ice hockey at 3 so we'd fit in I think!

Ginny said...

Not in Canada, but I'm close in Michigan :)

I love the Lavender Blue (Dily Dily)

laura said...

Really cute. I like the red 3. With a number, you can use it with all the kids (although, everyday is dress-up right?!). Thanks for a fun giveaway. laurachilton {at} hotmail {dot} com

Chelsey said...

I love the crown with the "L" and blue stars!!! What a handsome birthday hat or tickle trunk addition!

Yup, I'm Canadian, but not an official blogger... Do I get part marks for being semi-witty with the Mr. D reference?

These crowns are SO CUTE! If I won, I'd have to buy a second one so that I could get one for each of my twins, one in pink wool felt with an L on it & one in purple wool felt w/ an A on it.

I esp like your blue crown with the "L" as the example. You're super talented. Wearing these on b-days would be such a fun tradition to start. Thanks!

Sarah said...

You picked a great, memorable etsy shop name! I think of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" when I hear bluejeanbaby, and I'm unlikely to forget your shop's name.

My eldest child's birthday is coming up in Oct., and she would LOVE one of these crowns. I liked the initial crown on the lower right of your pics, which you have shown in blues with stars. I'd like it for her in pinks with the initial "E" if I win. Thanks for the chance to win!

Your quilts are beautiful as well! I like the signature quilt and baby's first turning 20. Great job!

momo3 said...

those crowns are so well made and so creative . . . i hear them! what a fun tradition to start for my lil ones birthday! thanks! kristen
