February Fever Giveaway!

February 8, 2010 at 9:51 am 13 comments


Okay. Just had to get it out of my system.

Second: Ruby’s computer had to go to the computer hospital for a little procedure. We’re all keeping our fingers crossed that it will be home soon, because no one likes to be offline for so long! So I (Emerald) will be taking over the blogging duties this week.

Third (the part you really wanted to know about): The details of the February Fever Giveaway! Because it’s Mardi Gras time and because the Saints won the Superbowl, we’re feeling like spreading the love around. Ruby and I will be sending out free gifts to one of our lucky readers! Here’s what’s up for grabs- Ruby is contributing a hand-made set of greeting cards, either a vintage clown theme, or a spring theme (the choice will be the winner’s). I’m contributing these fun, dangle-y, sparkly earrings (handmade by yours truly) so you can channel your inner Indian princess.

Here’s how to win: LEAVE A COMMENT on this post! The winner will be chosen at random from our comments section, and we will contact you by email for your shipping information. Winner will be announced on MARDI GRAS (Feb. 16th).

Stay tuned all week for fun, daily, Mardi-Gras themed posts!

Much love,

Emerald (and Ruby loves ya too!)

    Thanks, Mag! They’re my second attempt at chandelier-style earrings, and I’m pretty pleased with the outcome!

    How fun is this!!!

    I love homemade greeting cards and your earrings are super. I’ve even got a little American Indian in my family tree…so they could really bring out the Indian princess in me.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and adding Apron Strings to your blog roll. Come again any time.

    Y’all have a safe Mardi-Gras.
