Talented Tuesday & A Giveaway! CLOSED!!


As you probably all know by now, it's Birthday Week! Actually, it's Birthday Day! Today is my 32nd birthday. I have HUGE plans. BIG. GINORMOUS! Ok, not really. I have PT at 9:30 (maintenance- I go in and do the exercises I've been doing), then at 1:30, the local theater is showing Gone with the Wind for just $3! I'm excited!

Have you had a chance to enter the first four Birthday Week at My Frugal Family giveaways? Julie from Singing Three Little Birds is hosting a cool jewelry prizeBrooke from Makin' It Domestic is giving away a cute little handmade purse, Joy from Mommas Kinda Crafty is giving away a minky stuffed animal, and I (from here!) am giving away a pair of bib clips! If you did enter, please go double check that you left an email address- several entries did not!!

For Birthday Week, several of my awesome readers are sponsoring giveaways here on My Frugal Family! Today's giveaway comes from Brittany at Love Stitched. For this giveaway, Brittany is letting the winner choose from one of the following crafty prizes:

Pink Rosette Earrings- The winner would get 1 pair, not 3 pairs!

Fabric Flower Headband
6-9 Month White Onsie with an Appliqued Owl in Purple and Lavender
The Rules For the Contests:

1. Each Contest is being sponsored by another blog, except 1 contest that I'll be hosting myself. To help thank these wonderful women, I am asking that you to Visit the Love Stitched Etsy Shop, and find either a product you love, a project you love, or a post they've done that you love, and comment back to me with it. This way, they get some new viewers, hopefully, and can feel the love from my viewers!

2. An email address is required- if you do not feel comfortable with email harvesting, please use something such as (at) and (dot) to break it up a bit, so that it can be used to contact you!

3. Twitter, Tweet, Facebook, and Blog about the contests for an extra entry. Post a link to where you twittered, tweeted (I know, it's the same thing), facebooked, or blogged about it, and post this as a second comment for a second entry.  

4. The winner chosen will be posted on the blog, and also emailed by me. Please check your emails & this blog to see if you won anything- if I can't get a mailing address from the winner after 3 days, I will have to pick a new winner!

Enjoy the contests, and please, visit the sponsors- they are a talented group of ladies!

The winner of this giveaway will be drawn on Monday, May 3rd, using to randomly pick a number from the comments. 


  • If no email address was given on the winning comment, a new winner WILL be chosen, so please, remember to leave contact information! If you are worried about web crawlers snagging the email address, please feel free to substitute the @ for (at) and the . for (dot) so your email address reads like this: herberkids3(at)yahoo(dot)com, instead of the normal way. As long as I can understand what it should be, you will be entered!
  • The winner will be emailed by myself, and the sponsor of the contest. The prize will be sent from the sponsor, so it's important to make sure that you answer one or both of the emails with your snail mail address for shipping!
  • If a response is not received within 3 days time, a new winner will be drawn, so please- respond!
Good luck to all the entries, and don't forget to check back again tomorrow for another exciting giveaway!!
