The Great Gift Basket Giveaway Begins Today!

First, many many thanks to

The Twinkle Bee work force.
They gave me awesome ideas on how this should go down,
and you know, donated the goods.

Every day (maybe two to give everyone a chance to enter)
I will be highlighting
a different Twinklebee Handmade specialty
and its creator.

I have been begging and begging...
alright, no, I haven't
I just asked everyone nicely
and they graciously said
Of course!
So we have 5 fabulous gift baskets to give away.

The first give away
(Because hello, it is my blog,)
(and well, mostly because I already have one ready)
Is an Apron from Handi Andi's Apron shop.

Are you excited?
Well you should be.

Handi Andi
(my sister made up this moniker and it kinda stuck)
is a busy busy mom of three
who works part time
at a Treatment Center for Teenage Girls
called New Haven.

This is what she looks like most days.
Hair in a pony tail,
forget the make up.
(I mentioned busy mom part right?)
She loves antiques, red glass, sewing,
DIY projects, reading, blogging,

traveling, gardening.
hanging out with her seriously hot husband,
and playing with her kids.
She's pretty much the luckiest lady in the world.
Check out her apron shop on Twinkle Bee
and comment on her blog.
(this makes her very happy)

So here are the Rules.
(Yeah, I know, sorry to have to get technical.)

If you want to win the awesomeness that is posted that day
If you post on your blog about the contest.
Comment again and let me know.
I will check it out,
and you will be entered again.

The winners will be announced
when the next item is posted.
Don't be discouraged if you don't win the first one.
Come back and enter again for the next.

Comment and I will try to clarify.

Here's to hoping that you win!

I saw this on Kristi's blog. Super cute aprons and the rag quilts are precious too. Kristi and Byron used to live across the street from us in Provo, just so you don't think I'm a crazy person. :)

S Semon said...

Heather said...

Soo, I'm too late then right? Well, I will enter the next one.

I think it is awesome you are doing a giveaway!

Kasi said...

I just saw your comment on my blog, and I have to add ANOTHER thing that I am annoyed at--I HAVE A MIRENA IUD!!! I've had it since October. I didn't have a period until last month, and then out of the blue I had a killer one. And so far this month all I have are the symptoms, no period yet though. I was SO hoping I would never have one again, especially since I never get one while I am breast-feeding.

But besides that, I agree, they are heavenly :)

I'm in...if not this give-a-way...the next...CUTE stuff!

Quinn and Ang said...
