A FREE giveaway

***Giveaway Closed***
I have found that I LOVE making new things but my husband HATES all the extra stuff hanging around. I’ll admit, the clutter starts getting to me too. So my solution……………Give some of it away. Here’s my first giveaway.

And the item up for grabs:

Yellow Floral Baby Booties

These booties are size: 6-9 months, are made with 100% cotton and lined with wool, for warm cozy comfort. The strap has a velcro closure, making it adjustable.

Especially useful if someone needs a little gift for their own child right now, wants to save it for a future child, or give it away for Christmas!

How to enter?

  • Leave me a comment with your email address.
Want to be added in again?

Another entry?
  • Put my button on your blog. (already have one? just remind me in another comment.)
Okay, just ONE more entry……
  • Mention this free giveaway, with a link, in a post on your blog. (And then tell me you did so. Don’t have a blog? Uh,…….tell me what you want for Christmas!! ;o))
The giveaway closes on Saturday, Dec 13th at 11:59 p.m. (mountain)

All are welcome to enter. And for my husband’s sake………take these off of my hands! :o)
