Bug Boutique GIVEAWAY

It's giveaway time!
I'm so excited for you to meet my friend, Darby. {Not to be confused with this Darby who is wonderful in blog land and in real life- whose husband I grew up with.}

Darby and I were sorority sisters in college and probably have a few embarrassing pictures together floating around on Facebook. We lived together my freshman year in a dorm that was literally condemned the minute Spring Semester was finished. Falling tiles and exposed insulation; we loved every minute of it!

She lives in South Florida now {probably without a crumbling elevator} and has an ADORABLE boutique called The Bug Boutique- named after her son whose nickname is "bug". Isn't that cute?

Here is Darby and her cute fam {picture swiped from afore-mentioned facebook}:
So Darby is super crafty and talented and makes wonderful handmade purses, diaper bags, aprons, dresses, burp cloths- you name it! She has fabrics galore to choose from or you can even have her choose what she thinks looks good together based on what you tell her you like {I love this option because it takes me forever to decide that kind of thing}.

Darby has offered a $50 gift certificate to her shop for one lucky blog commenter! How much fun!

Here is what you need to do to enter:
1) Go to Darby's site, The Bug Boutique and window shop. I guarantee she has something for you or a gift that would be perfect for someone you know.

2) Pop back here and comment in the comment section {just click on the orange portion there on the bottom right that says "comments"} on your favorite item. That will earn you one entry. Be sure I have your e-mail address if you'd like to win.

3) For another entry, you can become a follower of this-here blog {right hand column over there- those cute little people- you can be one, too!}. If you are already a follower just comment a second time to let me know that you are or that you became one.

4) For a third entry {if you are so inclined} you can blog about this giveaway. Come back and comment again to tell me if you do that.

Winner will be chosen by Random.org on Tuesday, June 16th at 8 pm {or as soon as I can get my kiddos to sleep}.

If I was playing, I believe I would pick this:Or a couple of these tops {for my nieces' birthdays coming up soon}: Or maybe a handbag or 12 for myself:

Good thing I'm not playing. But you should! So go visit Darby and come on back here and tell me what you love!

we have lots of new babies coming into our family this summer, so I'd be loving that gift certificate for some gifts: burp cloths and paci tags are my top picks. For myself, I might like a bar towel :)

Hi Hillary! Nice to meet you. I am a friend os Darby's family. I just love everything she makes but I am partial to the personalized diaper mag that Annie (Darby's MIL) sent me as a baby gift. LOVE it! So fashionable and get tons of compliments. I am hoping to win so I can get some of the clothing to photograph little darlings. Hope to win! Danica

Ok, I am so inclined to post a 3rd time because I really support Darby's craft. Actually, I think it's such a fab idea that I may ask her to donate to a lucky winner here in Illinois so I can photograph them and send her some photos for her site. btw, Hillary, you have such a great site. Love the blog entries!
