Show Us Your Ministry and My First Giveaway!

This week at Kelly's Korner is "Show us your ministry week". Although I do not have a ministry, I do have a story that I would like to share with you. I have also have a few new readers, so I would love to take this opportunity to tell "Ayla's Story". I actually posted this last week on mistake so I know alot of you have already read this. If you have not read Ayla's Story please click HERE to read! After you have read this, please come back and join my very FIRST giveaway!!

To celebrate my new blog makeover and my two year blogging anniversary, I have decided to have a giveaway. I love to make hair bows, flower clips etc, for my daughter and have been doing it since she was a baby. I actually had an Etsy store for a short time selling my items. Since I appreciate everyone of you that take the time out to read my blog, I am so excited to give back to you something that I enjoy doing! I am giving away a HUGE lot of hair goodies for your little girl. If you do not have a little girl, I am sure you know one that would look adorable in all of these goodies!!

This give away includes:
Two crochet beanie hats (one pink and one black) you can clip the flowers or any bows that you may already have on to these!
Two large Flower clips (these clip on the hat or headbands or can be worn alone)
Six Crochet headbands
Two small flower clips, (these look cute on headband or worn alone)
Four hair bows (red, pink, white, ivory)
Fifteen crochet flower clips (these can be used for babies and older girls) all are lined on an alligator clip. Some of these are crochet watermelons and cupcakes.. so cute! Ayla still wears these to pull her bangs back!

All you have to do to enter is:

become a follower for two entries

Ayla looks so cute in all of those hair accessories! I love them all! I think I would be able to find many little girls to show these goodies to.

Emily said...

I just read Ayla's story -- I think its wonderful that you and your husband are working so hard on raising awareness for kids with arthritis. I will add Ayla to my prayer list that she remains strong and beats JRA!

And thanks for your sweet comments on my 27 Dresses blog! You made me cry! :) I really appreciate the encouragement.

3LittleByrds said...

Lesli, what a great giveaway. Thanks for letting me know about it. These would be perfect for my girls. I love them. We seem to like to dress our girls alot alike. :) I noticed in one of your disney posts Ayla wearing a disney outfit that is similar to some of the ones I've gotten for Ansley in the past. I bet it's the same ebay seller. We goto Disney all the time and during the summer I have the girls dressed alike in a different Disney outfit everyday. I LOVE it and yes obsessed like you. lol.

3LittleByrds said...

I'm a follower as well.

Jamie said...

Jamie said...

I posted about it on facebook. BTW- I said it before but I just love your new blog design!

3LittleByrds said...

Lesli, I bet it is the same ebay seller. I love her. We've bought from her several years now and her prices are great. Do you ever buy off etsy for Disney outfits? It's definately nice living in Fla. and being close to Disney. We live right outside of Jacksonville so we're about 3 hrs. away. We go every summer at the end of May beginning of June for 8 days, then again for 5 days in Dec. and then tons of weekend trips. We're definately going to miss that when we move to Dallas this summer. My parents are in the vacation club at Disney so it's nice to go so much and stay on property at all the villas.

Kacy said...

Ok, dear, I obviously WANT this! I'm leaving a comment, I became an official follower, I posted it on Facebook, and before the night is over I will blog about it, too. Here's to some good luck...show a sister some love!! Your wares are too cute!! LOVE IT!
