still not a winner.

The blog world is full of give aways. Everywhere you look, it seems you can win a prize... design mom, mod mom, tangled & true, just to name a few of the wonderful blogs that love to give! So when Nan, over at Life is Like a Lunchbox, announced she would be hosting Apronpalooza & that there would be contests involved, I knew this would be my chance to win big. So I checked her blog daily & she didn't disappoint. I think the final count was 18 giveaways... 18 chances to win... 18 opportunities to win the apron of my dreams! And yet, I didn't win. I had my heart set on a pretty, new apron... so I made it myself, using the pattern I found HERE. Oh well... someday I'll win.

Cute apron! You could wear long beads and look like a flapper girl from the Roaring 20's!

Hi Kelly,
came across your blog by chance and wanted to let you know how glad I am I did! So many really neat ideas, balanced with the sweet bits about your darling kids.
Nice work!

very cute! I made one of these for an apron swap (hopefully my swap partner is not reading your blog because the swap is not over yet) - hopefully I'll be posting it on my blog next week sometime. It's going in the mail today.

Oh and no one has claimed my apron from Apronpalooza so Nan said she would re-offer it if no one claims by Friday - so make sure to check back. You still have a chance to win:)!

Very cute! Thanks for sharing. It does look like a little flapper skirt.

what fun! i was also convinced i was going to get my very first apron out of that contest... but no go. i like yours! i will post pics on my blog when i get mine done... 'cause i've decided to give in and make one, too!

Sounds like we have similar luck. I'm always entering different blog giveaways and always come up empty-handed. That apron is cute!

super cute, kelly! and thanks for the link to yet another adorable blog.

see you saturday! yay!

Nan said...

That's adorable! I'm sorry you didn't win! But it looks like there might be a redraw on some of them so you still might yet have a chance! If it's any comfort, I never win anything either! Ever! LOL

Very cute!!! She has a flickr group for the ruffle aprons - you should post it there:):)

Missy said...

Oh Kelly! We have tons of giveaways lined up so maybe you will win from us someday. Although the apron you made is incredible! I wish I was more crafty.

Psst - we have mini-giveaways exclusive to our hello friends! email list. We still draw a number out of a bag, but...another way to win!
