Celebrating my 116th post, Giveaway Time!!!


I am celebrating my 116 post by doing a giveaway... Be quite!! I can't even keep track of my own kids names and B-days, let alone when my 100 post is.




I have begged for comments, but still everyone is in hiding, (big babies).




So Why not buy your love.




I am featuring for the first time ever my bows and Tutus.




So in honor of my love for making these precious things, you get one, yep, have you seen the price of these puppies? Not so precious, I make them for a lot cheaper than what you see them for.. (tutu's that is)




Here is the one you will get, Baby pink and brown, with a bow in the front.

Here is what you do, you get to pick the size, the length so that it will be perfect for a gift for the Holidays... Don't worry, next month I will do a Christmas tutu for those who don't win.




Here is the rules.




1 entry for leaving a comment.




2 entries for leaving a comment, and following me.




5 entries for shouting me out on your blog!!!!!




Good Luck, this fun ends Nov 13Th at midnight.




Winner will be announced Nov 14Th...




Enter now, who doesn't need a tutu...




PS, they come in sizes--------------- Newborn, infant, toddler, prekinder, school




And the sizes are short, med, and long.




I am in the middle of doing a tutu dress, when I have it finished, I will post...


note- they are made out of the soft tulle, and elastic.. And newborn ones are only 3/4th round the elastic. So they can lay nicely silly!!!

I love your tutus, they're so gorgeous!!

RunJoRun said...

Dear Matron of the Naulu Tribe,
A blogger friend of mine got me hooked on your blog! My DH is Native Samoan (met at BYUH), so I understand the 'hair thing' :oD....my four daughters wanted their hair straightened today! I was reminding them that 6 am would be a better waking time with the amount of hair each has. (sigh!...in jealousy :oD) My 2 yr old would love a tutu from you. She is the girliest of them all and loves to dance to your music. My kids turn on your blog to get some tunes when they come home. They know most of the words by heart! Poor girls only know Poly tunes and old school stuff... :o)
We are in Northern CA, on the coast. Anyway, I am going on too long! I need to learn how to blog, too. :o)
Hope you are feeling better soon at your place.
~Jo
PS...Fetuao Malia would need a pre-school long, if you choose us

Johanna said...

Bring on the tutu. My girls would love it!
I just have to say, your daughters' hair is gorgeous!

the mama hood said...

Devri, when are you gonna start your own business, seriously!? You are super talented! Thanks for all the love and support!!

I commented, I am a follower and I posted about your giveaway on my goods blog here:

But I am chicken. And what in the world would I give away!!!?? I need to come up with something that no one else does..otherwise I would feel like I am taking others people's "blog traffic" and potential sales etc... Is everyone still sick? Hope you feel better soon!!!

Kristen said...

Rachelle said...

You're so funny! I can't keep track of anything either. I just found your blog about 3 weeks ago but I've loved looking through all the hair styles. My oldest daughter is growing her hair out and when it's long enough she wants to cut it off to give to Locks of Love. She has about 6 inches left to grow. The hair on your girls is amazing! I highly doubt I'll win the tutu, but enter me anyway. I have 3 little girls so it would really get used.

Julie said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog, Devri. Great blog you've got here and a gorgeous family!

I feel lucky today. Not only because I won Mindi's superfantastic blog giveaway, but also because I was listening to the radio wishing that they would play Thunderstruck and the next song was Thunderstruck!!! I'm on a streak. I would top the charts as the greatest auntie that ever walked the planet if I were to win this adorable tutu. My niece would have a heart-attack if I were to present her with such a glorious treasure. I've got to win this!
