For you, my readers, with much love! xoxo

In honor of Party of 5's one year anniversary, I'd like to thank my valued readers with a special gift!  All you have to do is become a follower of this blog and leave a comment on this post!  *off to the right there you'll see a white bar that says follow - click it! *  On Tuesday (the actual one year anniversary) I will choose one person who does those two things.  The fabulous reader who becomes a follower and leaves a comment will get her (his?) name put into a bowl and my lovely assistant, Drew, will draw a name randomly.  The drawing will be held before bathtime on Tuesday, probably around 7pm PST.  

What's the gift, you ask?  Oh, my.  You're in for a treat.  Two of them, actually.  And don't think I'm not going to become my own follower and comment so I can legitimately be eligible for this.  My friend, Jillian, makes the cutest things and these two items from her etsy store could be yours!  

Super cute Halloween flag banner kit

* bundle of twine for stringing
* pre-stamped letters B-O-O on hymnal page
* 5 pages from a vintage hymnal
* 1 silver glitter spider
* 2 black spiders
* 1 glitter pumpkin
* orange and white bakers twine
* metallic orange ribbon

-please note: due to vintage items, kit may vary *ever-so* slightly, the last listing photo is an example of how your kit will arrive, it may or may not include the items pictured, BUT I always.always include a fun array of extra goodies... you will surely be delighted!!


Sugar Skull Beanie

These Sugar Skull designs on a cozy beanie are certain to garner the attention and compliments of perfect strangers on any wee cutie! With a whimsical 'nod' to Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), how sweet it is to honor an ancient Aztec tradition that is still celebrated today!

(Plus, how can you resist the fun?!?)

All sugar skull designs are original, made with high quality-100% wool felt, hand sewn and secured to the felt skull shape, then again stitched on to the beanie. Beanies are listed as one size fits most.

I'm excited to see how this, my first giveaway, goes!  Thank you to Jillian for allowing me to pimp out your stuff and a HUGE thanks to my fantastic readers.  I'm hoping to hear from many of you.  Send this to your friends, pass the word!
