It's a Giveaway!

***giveaway now closed***

This summer has been a whirlwind of activity mostly related to packing and moving our family of six to a new home. As a result, many of you know that I've not been making dolls or capes for a while. However, to celebrate feeling kind-of, mostly settled in our home (and secretly, more importantly, my sewing room - ha, ha!), it's time for a GIVEAWAY!!!



I am so blessed that my husband agreed to let me "have" the extra bedroom for my sewing room!


At least until the kiddos get older and need to spread out more...






Ahhh...I was sorta, kinda embarrassed at just how much sewing, creative, artsy stuff my loving church family helped move to this room...yeah, addict. That's what I am.


One side of the room pretty well settled...there are no pictures of the other side of the room, for good reason! Lots of boxes full of home dec stuff...when will I ever find time to hang this stuff up?!




Thrifted, vintage sheets...(oh my, I have a problem and too many great thrift stores in my area)...but they're so pretty and make such pretty things!!!




Alright, enough rambling, right?!




I will be giving away ONE (1) CUSTOM PERSONALIZED DOLL with a RUFFLED SLEEVE DRESS and BLOOMERS and a set of HAIR PRETTIES! (or if you want a boy doll, I'll gladly dress him in overalls and a shirt!)




To enter this giveaway, you MUST "like" Hidden In My Heart Dolls on FACEBOOK!




You may comment only once. Tell me something, anything that will make me smile. Or don't and just leave your name :o) . But I'm a comment addict, too, so make me smile, please?!




For an extra entry, follow my blog using the "follow" button on the left hand side and let me know that you are a follower!


The giveaway starts NOW and will run until 9pm on Wednesday, September 21st.




I will choose the winner via random number generator and announce the winner on my facebook page and blog Wednesday evening. If your contact info is not available when you comment, the winner will have 48 hrs. to contact me or I'll choose a new winner!




My etsy shop will be open Thursday, September 22nd for Christmas and other orders!!!


(Thanks for being patient with me as I balance family and all!!! And thanks for all your sweet comments and encouragement!)




Now, leave a comment for your chance to win!!!

The idea of having a scripture on a baby doll for my sweet "baby" Kate, makes my heart SOOO happy!!!

My grandbabies love their little dolls, especially with their own verse (and name!!) included. AND, when they wear their little pony tails, they are each a twin to their doll! So adorable!!!

Thank you so much for the giveaway! I'm a Facebook 'liker' and one thing that makes me smile is that my son (4) calls nailclippers 'tailnippers'. Soooooo cute. :) Hope it makes you smile, too.

Kiley,
I'm so blessed to see that you are using the talents that God has given you so that you can be a blessing to others. In college, you were always so sunny and friendly. Your creative energy is evident in your homemaking, in the organization of your sewing room, and in the radiant smiles of your beautiful children. I am amazed at how dilligently you must work to homeschool on top of everything else you manage so well. I'm glad God has allowed me to know you. You inspire me to be a better wife and mother to my twin babies. -Rigel

I "like" you on FB and in real life! :-) Hannah has wanted one of these but just could not fit it in the budget.

Blessings! I gave my husband the extra bedroom for his study.

I was confused so i deleted my other comment. (if the number generator picks that number, though you can consider it my sister's comment that wouldn't post....?)

I NEED one of your dolls. (honestly, I need 3 of them, but I'll just have to buy the other 2 for christmas or something...haha.)

Miriam is into the doll stage of life. last night she had her doll outside with us (something i rarely allow) and she wanted me to zip it up in her sweatshirt so she could have both hands to play. it was a.dor.a.ble.

LOVE the sewing room. can't wait to come see that beautiful house.

I have been a doll collector all of my child and adult life, it is something I share with my Mother who has bought me amazing dolls over the year, that I cherish. After many years of waiting I am expecting a daughter of my very own due in just 5wks. To be able to give her a custom made doll would just be amazing! Your dolls are beautiful and simply put they are PRICELESS! I cannot wait to have pictures taken of my lil beauty with her very own doll!

I am a Facebook Fan. :) I would love to win one of your dolls. They are absolutely gorgeous.

Something to make you smile? Well, it makes me laugh when I take my 2 year old out and she wants to bring something along and she asks "Bring your this?" And holds up whatever is in her hand. So cute! I just love the phrases little ones come up with. :)

Roses are red, violets are blue. I wish I had a girl to share a doll with, but a boy with overalls will do!

Cheesy I know - my boys would love a farm boy, so pick us random number generator!

Your knack for color and design impress me but what really amazes me is your energy. I admire your energy. I love everything about your cute little business. Blessings!

I love all things homemade! Even better if it is from someone you know!

Kagrez said...

I have been trying to find a girl to get a doll for as my almost 9 year old son probably wouldn't care for a doll! :D

I have seen 'em on line, seen 'em in person and now I have a reason to get one. So, win it or buy it, I gotta have one! No it's not for a child of mine ... just incase anyone was getting any ideas...

Love your sewing room!

Denise said...

I Love the message of your dolls! My little girl (12 months) would really love one!
Your sewing room is awesome!
Thanks for the giveaway! Denise
