red and pink giveaway! ~closed!~

In celebration of Valentine's Day, I am so happy to announce a new giveaway! And not only is a little chickadee chickadee in the prize bundle, but also included are some absolutely yummy goodies that I know you all will love!
I love getting to know my customers because you guys are just the best! One of my sweet customers has just opened up her own etsy shop and it has been lots of fun watching her creations take place! Julie makes the most adorable chunky beaded necklaces for little girls. As a mommy of two little ladies, she knows all about what girls love--color, spunk and fun in their jewelry! My girls have a little jewelry box and every morning when we get dressed they pick out a few pieces to accessorize... I rarely have time to even apply a little lip gloss these days, much less dress up (my workout gear--haha!! especially ironic seeing as I also barely make time to exercise these days either!) with necklaces and bracelets... but somehow those little chickadees of mine never had to be taught that accessorizing is fun! They put on some jewelry and bam--they feel so special and beam with excitement! I ordered necklaces for my girls and nieces from Julie for Christmas presents and when all four of them opened up their new baubles, they all smiled from ear to ear! (check out some pictures of my oldest pairing some chickadee chickadee with lil mar & co here!) I have no doubt that your little babes will have the same reaction when they see Lil Mar & Co.'s beautiful pieces! My husband likes to give the girls something special on Valentine's Day and these would be so perfect for that! Anyways, Julie is graciously giving away one of her Lots of Love necklaces!
And do you know what would go absolutely perfectly with that gorgeous necklace? A pair of red and white candy stripe double ruffles pants!!  And a matching red or red and pink hair clip or headband!! Yep, I'm giving away a pair of ruffles in your choice of size--6m to 5t and whichever kind of hair accessory your daughter would like best--headband or hair clip. And since I love banners for every occasion, I will also make the winner a reds and pinks circle garland like in this photo!  (sorry, the dress and bloomers aren't included in the giveaway--I sent those off to my little niece already!)
And now that the outfit is taken care of, let's move on to one of the most important things about February 14th...the valentines themselves!! My dear friend Tracy owns the most adorable paper shop and I've told you all about her amazing designs before! She is a party planning mastermind...seriously! She created all the chickadee chickadee icons and labels and business cards, but she does way more than that! Birthday party invitations, Thank you cards, personalized stationary, baby shower invitations, wedding stationary and shower invitations, Christmas cards, birth name it...if it involves paper, she can do it!! Tracy is giving away printable Valentine's favor tags and flat card "love notes"! yea!!  {4 PDF customized printable files (no printed materials will be shipped).... 2 flat note styles and 2 square card styles.  The square cards come in your choice size: 2.5 inch favor tag or 4 in. Valentine card.}
