thank you and a blog-versary giveaway

August 27, 2008

It has been a wonderful first year blogging in this space…

I have made so many good friends through here and I appreciate all the love and encouragement that I have received thus far. To think it all started with a friend, who owned a baby boutique, liking my handmade goodies, and then another friend, encouraging me to blog about it! Through this, I have been able to help my family a bit and I just thank God for this opportunity!!!
To celebrate, I wanted to give away some Cakies clippies, which is what started this all! A lucky winner (those overseas are welcome to join) will receive 3 Cakies clippies of their choice…
The giveaway will end and be announced sometime Friday morning and in order to be part of it, just leave a comment on this post. 
I love making things, learning from and being inspired by others, and being able to share this love for creating with all of you, so thank you!
So, happy blog-versary to me!!!
Also, I had to share some new Cakies stockists:
  • Babylegs Singapore – I am so excited about this because it is one of my first international spots and being sold along side the famous Babylegs is such an honor!
  • Ava and Ashley – If you are going green, this is another place to go!
  • Genes – Totally a rockin’ place to shop and check out their look book because you could be a queen, king, or just rock a Cakies clip!
  • Lilliputians-NYC – Famous for their birthday outfits, they also carry an exclusive line of Cakies crowns that can only be found on their site.
  • Green Little Beans –  Perfect place to shop for that cute, little, organic baby you love and they have the cutest handmade stick ponies I have ever seen!
Thank you Lord for giving Cakies these opportunities!!!

You’re such an inspiration and your blog is always so bright and cheerful! It’s a treat to come here and visit! You don’t have to throw my name in for the drawing… we have Cakies here and I’d rather have someone win them who needs them! Everyone who sees them loves them. My hairstylist said the nicest things about them and she loves them in her little daughter’s hair too!
