My First Giveaway! ~ Crafty Mama Designs

Good morning! I am very excited about the feature today because it includes a giveaway of some of my favorite things! I showed you Halle's new hair clippies a few weeks ago, and she has been wearing them a ton since then. I can't say enough good things about them, so I asked Aviva, who has the etsy shop called Crafty Mama Designs, to tell us a little bit about herself & her shop.

"My name is Aviva and I'm a SAHM (stay-at-home mom) getting crafty in my "spare time"- ha! Mostly after the kids' bedtimes and into the wee hours, that is. I started making hair bows and clips for my daughter, and became so addicted to creating them that I soon had more than she would ever need... even for a girl who loves her accessories!

"My daughter has really been my inspiration- mostly out of necessity! She has crazy curly red hair, and so I started making clips to keep the hair out of her face and (slightly) under control! She's a girly-girl for sure, and now she loves to check out my ribbon stash and pick out what I should make for her next.

"I really love to use fun, bright colors and whimsical patterns for the hair clips in my shop. I think any set in the shop would be a great gift idea-- they make fun stocking stuffers or party favors too! I pay a lot of attention to detail and offer my crafty creations for affordable prices, because I just have so much fun doing it!

"I'll be running a promotion towards the end of November, so to stay updated on the details, become a fan on Facebook or follow me on Twitter! I do have a blog, but it's sadly neglected right now since I’m having too much fun making clips!!"

Be sure you check out her shop and add it to your holiday list! I swear the little non-slip grippers she can add to her clippies are miracle workers~ Halle hasn't been able to pull them out a bit! I get so many compliments, and at her awesome prices you can afford to stock up to match every outfit.

Now here's where it gets really exciting! Aviva has offered to giveaway a set of clippies from her shop to one of my readers. So cute! Any set, excluding the dozen clip started sets, is up for grabs! All you have to do is go to her shop, decide which set you would like (that's the hard part because they are all so adorable!) and come back here and comment your choice. Entries only in the US and Canada. Only one entry per person, please! The giveaway ends Monday, November 16th, and I will announce the winner here on Tuesday the 17th. Easy, right?!
