Another Giveaway brought to you by...

My lovely friend, Stacy, is having a giveaway on her blog. She blogs about ways to be thrifty around the house and life in general. Stacy's facebook page recently hit 100 fans and now she's having a giveaway for a pretty sweet book.

Like Stacy's Facebook page for your fist entry. If you're a fan of my page (which you should be!), you get a second entry by making two comments on the giveaway page! Make sure you read her rules before you enter. They're not long and it's better to know what to do than risk having your entry voided!

So hop to it! Go like her facebook page, then visit her blog to try your luck in another giveaway. Tell her I sent you!

Drumroll, please! And the winner is....

Kalley O'Neal Head

Comments were adjusted for double posts/deleted posts and for an entry that did not state a Facebook name to check "fan" status. That left 22 valid comments. Lucky number 14 is Kalley's comment: 

Love this! What a great Mommy purse! BBD fan on fb. :) Kalley O'Neal Head

Kalley, please email with your complete mailing address by Wednesday, May 11. 

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated! For those who participated, email me and I'll send you a coupon code for 10% off your next purchase on our Etsy shop!
