Rafflecopter Cash Giveaway Blog Sponsor Sign-up

Cash Giveaway Blog Sponsor Sign-ups
(This is part of our Adoption Auction)

GIVEAWAY Begins September 30th!!

My husband and I are currently adopting (open domestic adoption) and hosting this event to raise the $5,000 we need for the attorney fees.  (The total expenses for our adoption are $28,000.)

The auction and giveaway will be advertised to over 200,000 moms through our email list, blogs, and Twitter.  We are also planning to share it once per day with our Facebook page; I do have over 20 Facebook pages and am very active with my fans there.

This very well could reach a whole lot more people as well, depending on how many blogs get involved!  This means a lot of exposure for your business/blog!!  (Oh and then you have to figure it that there will be around 50 blogs participating with an average of 1,000 fans each minimum so that’s another 50,000 people who will see this giveaway once we get 50 blogs!)

We are opening up a big cash giveaway as part of this auction to be able to attract a lot more online traffic and so that blogs will participate in helping us out.  If you are a blogger that would like to have a link in the Rafflecopter entry form (a social media link of your choice!)

It is just $8.00 per link and the maximum links sold will be 50 so you have a greater chance of getting much more fans than the giveaways that have hundreds of optional entries.  Half of the money will go towards our adoption and the other half will be given away as a GRAND PRIZE to one lucky person that participates in the giveaway…it could be one of your blog readers! :)   (UPDATE as of 9/27: I decided to only put 25% to our fundraising and give 75% of the sponsored money to the winner.)

We have $120 for the lucky winner so far… let’s make it an even $200!
Just 10 more sponsors would do it!!

Not sure what to expect? Here’s a sample of what the entry form will look like:

Have you ever wanted to learn how to crochet?  With a son on the way in November, I’ve decided to start making a lot of fun blankets for him.  Since I’m a beginner crocheter I decided blankets would be the easiest to start with!  To help me learn all the basics, I hired Kristen a few months ago to film videos and write out a step-by-step manual for all the basics I would need and allowed me to compile it into a course so YOU can learn how to crochet too!

Here’s a quick photo of the blanket I’m working on now:

Here’s the basic pattern I’m using to make it:  http://pinterest.com/pin/106256872428948351/

 

This is so easy and it wouldn’t be possible without “Secrets to Crochet Success”  If you are ready to start learning how to crochet, this is the course for you!  Plus it comes with patterns for a granny square, scarf, and more!

 

Get “Secrets to Crochet Success” before Saturday, June 30th (midnight EST)
for only $18.00 instead of the $27.00 regular price…

Now hop around to the other blogs for your chance at more cool prizes:

Welcome to the Summer Sizzle Giveaway Hop hosted by Mom With a Dot Com! 70 bloggers got together to give you a chance to win some amazing prizes that will keep you entertained throughout the summer!

Summer Sizzle will begin on June 24 and end on June 30. As you are hopping around, I hope you will find some prizes that you love – maybe you will even win one! Each giveaway will have a prize valued at $25 or more!


I’m often asked, “Where can I get cheap ribbon online?”  If you live in the US and want to buy lots of ribbon, I’d suggest heading to Hobby Lobby and stocking up on their 50% ribbon sales.  Otherwise I know there are many blog readers and bow makers that live in other countries (I have a ton of customers from Australia!) and want to purchase supplies online and get them shipped.

Now if you want to order in larger quantities (for those making lots of hair accessories to sell!), I’d suggest:  http://www.theribbonretreatwholesale.com/

Otherwise I’d check out these sites:
http://www.venusribbon.com/
http://www.jkmribbon.com
http://www.theribbonspot.com
http://www.theribbonsupply.com

They have a lot of options for printed fabrics. Also you can usually get some good deals through Ebay if people are de-stashing what they have!  I’ve even seen ribbon and craft supplies for really cheap on Craigslist if your local site is pretty active.

 

Now that you have your supplies ordered, take a look at a video on some of the ribbon bows you can make!

Good luck!! :)

I’m sooo excited!  I just happened to see that my most popular Youtube video passed 1million views!  Check it out here and let me know in the comments what you think.  It’s a really simple hair accessory to make and I think that’s why so many people have enjoyed it and been able to make cute bows after watching it.  All you need is two small pieces of grosgrain ribbon and some hot glue…simple enough, right?!

 

This bow has been called tuxedo type hair bow and also can be used as a dog bow.  There are really many ways you can use it!  Teens love this style bow too since it’s very popular right now and so simple to create.

 

It took only 2 years to get over 1 million views…hoping that it takes less than a year to reach 2 million viewers.  Would you share this post to help me spread the word to your friends who would love this simple hair bow making video?  Thanks a million! :)

Giveaway and Review done by ELITEMAMA

Ah Diamonds. Every woman’s best friend. Well, that and chocolate =P

Say Hello Diamonds jewelry is beautiful. It’s affordable and stylish.

 

 

Just a Little Bit About Say Hello Diamonds:

 

“Each replica diamond goes through a rigid selection process
by our Say Hello Diamond experts. These specialists analyze the weight, cut,
and shine of each stone before it can be called a Say Hello Diamond. Each
replica diamond is polished, packaged, and presented to our Say Hello
Inspection Team. From there, our inspection team begins a 3-step review
process; Look, Shake, Ensure. During this process we analyze the physical
properties and test the durability of each diamond replica. Replica diamonds
that meet the rigid criteria set forth are lucky enough to be called, Say Hello
Diamonds.”

Here is what I had received in the mail
Pantina
Easily the top selling Say Hello Diamond product, our 4 carat Pantina earrings radiate shine through our round Say Hello Diamond studs. Beauty she can enjoy throughout the week, the earrings are set in cool, polished Sterling Silver and feature butterfly clasp backs.

My Review By “Elite Mama”:

I would have to say that these earrings from Say Hello Diamonds are by far my favorite piece of jewelry that I own. I am not much of a jewelry person, but with these earring I can make an exception. I love the look and the feel of the earrings. They are not to big nor to small. The one thing that I am amazed by is that the earrings do not cause an allergic reaction to my ears what so ever. I am very sensitive to jewelry, but with these Pantina earrings I don’t have to worry. I love Say Hello Diamonds Pantina Earrings. They are a great gift for any women. Or even men as well.

One lucky person will receive there very own pair of Pantina Earrings…wow!
