I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It has been so nice having my mom here, although poor Lillie has been sick so we haven't really been able to do much. Hopefully she will be feeling better today.
We wanted to remind everyone that today will be our last day our shop will be open until August! I am not sure yet what time we will close. It will probably just depend on how busy we are. Also, please note, for both the tutus and hats we will only be able to sell a limited quantity as they are made upon order unlike the screenprinted items which are ready to go (although we are low in sizes in most of our screenprinted items).
Also, Don't forget to enter the code BLOG30
if you purchase something to get the 30% discount
we are offering to all of our blog readers!
(For details on that you can read our last post. Either scroll down to the post below this one or click here).
Now onto the giveaway! For this one we are going to do something a little different. We will be choosing two winners. The first winner will receive TWO silhouette pillow covers (one of each). They are sized to fit an 18 by 18 insert. I had planned on making a bunch of these to sell but even though I got the fabric cut I never had time to print them. I did print a few in the original test batch, though. Two which I kept for myself and two that we are giving away here. They are NOT perfect (which is why we are giving them away instead of selling them). They are sewn beautifully, thanks to our new seamstress, Renete, but although the silhouette is crisp the ink isn't as uniform as I would want it to be to sell. We will be printing these to sell in the fall but for now thought we would offer them as a giveaway! (I do have one Jane Austen one available in our shop, but that is it.)
Here is what the first winner will receive:
You can see the ones I kept in our living room:
I took a couple of photos from the other side of this room too when I photographed the pillows. That was a couple of weeks ago. Now it is decorated for Easter which I will post photos of soon. I still need to finish my last few little project first, though.
The second winner will receive a
FREE edited photo
For the edited photo the winner can send us a photo and we will edit it and then send it back with two variations! Below I will show two examples of what photoshop can do.

The rules for this giveaway are a tiny bit different than normal.
We have added a way to get two extra entries.
1). Just leave a comment on this post!
You don't have to have a blog to enter, either. If you aren't a blogger, just enter a comment and then where it says "comment as" scroll down near the bottom and click on anonymous. However, if you do that, make sure to leave your e-mail address so we can confirm that you are the winner. If we draw the name of someone who doesn't leave any identifying information we will simply draw a new name.
2). Become a follower of our blog!
Just write "follower" as a second comment so it counts as an entry.
3) Mention our SALE and the discount code with a link to either our shop or blog on either your facebook page or blog and include a photo of something from our site.
You can get TWO EXTRA ENTRIES for this. Just leave the link from your facebook page or blog in the comment section. Make sure to do it two times so you get both extra entries.
This giveaway will just be running for the day today and will close at 8PM tonight.
I am not sure if I will have time to do a blog post tomorrow to announce the winners so most likely I won't announce them until Wednesday.
Make sure to check back here on the blog to collect your prize!
I also want to say congratulations to my father-in-law for winning his second state championship in three years!
Have a wonderful week!
