Mike & A Giveaway

comments closed. winner has already been announced in a different post. :) thank you for entering.


First before I start the giveaway... did you all see the blog post MY HUSBAND wrote to me for my birthday??? If not... go read it!!! What a beautiful thing he wrote to me. Had me in tears. It was a gift in and of itself. My husband truly is amazing, and I am reminded of this daily, when he does the laundry or doesn't always gripe about the house being a disaster. He supports me wholeheartedly in my business ventures, and encourages me to think outside this business box. He is always there for me, caring for me and our girls, and he is just so caring, loving and fun! He does so much for us that amazes me, and he took time out of his incredibly insane work day yesterday to write an amazing blog post to me. Swoon indeed!!! Thank you, Mike! You are the most amazing husband! I love you now and forever. xo

OK, now. Since soooo many of you ask me this question, I figured it was time for a SURPRISE giveaway [regular giveaways starting back up in June]. So, I hit up the owner of the shop, and she agreed to do a giveaway OR $10 off your purchase to ONE lucky winner!! :)

Let's begin.

Today, Lisa of Mommie Made It has so kindly agreed to giveaway some LABELS!!!! Yes, this is the shop I use to purchase my labels from for my camera strap slipcovers! I love her shop, mainly because she offers a great service, is super nice, and has great customer service. She is awesome! And... frankly. Her prices can't be beat!

Now, you all have seen my labels... mine are very simple, but she does more intricut stuff!! Trust me! Here are my labels...

Yay, first comment. love it!
I would def. do my biz logo on labels, if I won. You're stuff always looks so polished and neat. And I love how simple your label is!
Love all her cute ideas!

Celeste said...

Hmm... you know, I would love to have my address put on these to put in Christmas Cards (so people can keep to know our address for next year), OR... I'd have something simple like my name or "Love, Celeste" put on it - so I can include in cards & such. I'm a pretty avid baker, so maybe I could get something that would work w/ that when I give my baked goods as gifts. So many possibilities!!

..and I'm a FOLLOWER! :)

Brittany said...

I make things mostly as gifts, so it would be fun to have labels to put on those. What do I make? Whatever I feel like at the moment! I haven't really found my niche, I guess. But I'm loving it anyway!

Mommyof2girlz said...

I have been waiting to have extra funds to buy her labels, so this is perfect!! I make handmade clothing and other items for baby's and toddlers. I would use the labels for everything I make.

We have a shop on Etsy! We make reversible nursing covers, burp cloths, baby blanket bungees, XL hooded towels, pillowcase dresses, monogrammed loveys, and drawstring carry-all bags. Whew! We would use the labels for our products.
She has made so many cute labels!!!

Love those! I'm a monogrammer and I make lots of stuff for my kids and for gifts. I could totally find lots of things to put them on. I might go with the folded labels so that I could sew them into clothing.

I make bags mostly but will expand to make different things as gifts for my friends and family. I'd love to add some of her sew on fabric labels. I don't have an online shop yet since I'm in the middle of a move but once I get settled, I'm opening up shop!

I love these labels and love your camera straps. What a cute idea!

My sis and I have a little Esty shop, and we have labels, but they're not exactly cute. These are soooo adorable! We make all kinds of little baby and toddler do-dads. Check us out as www.maxandellie.etsy.com

amylouwho said...

Hi! I am currently making my own labels and I don't love them. This would be awesome! I make bags and baby stuff you can see what I do on my blog. I have an etsy site http://www.paisleygarden.etsy.com But I don't have a lot of things for sale right now.

I love your camera straps. You make some great fabric choices!

I also follow you!

Lydia said...

I make nursing covers, so it would be cool to have pretty labels to put on them! Of course I follow you!

Denissa said...

So, so sweet of Mike to do a b-day post for you!! Happy belated birthday, hope that you had a wonderful day!! :)

Terri said...

I read the entry your husband wrote yesterday, that was very sweet of him. You are very loved.

As for the Giveaway, I only saw labels in the store, so I guess thats my favorite. I am in between labels right now, so I would use it to maybe have my new labels designed. My old ones are no good since I changed my name to match my blog.
Thank you for the change.

I have plans for the future to open on Etsy. I'm very excited about that but not sure when it will happen!

I mostly crochet scarves and am on my way to 50 to sell at a festival this September! I have considered that I should do something like labels on them, but haven't come up with a neat design or known where I could get some. So thank you for showing me where! (her shop was awesome!)

You can see my scarves on my Wednesday update at

Ooh, I would LOVE labels! I make aprons...little girl, little boy, mommy...no daddy aprons yet, but I'm open to anything! (You can see some of them at www.lolocraft.etsy.com)

Thanks for the giveaway!!

CindyML said...

What a great husband you have and truly to treasure. You are one blessed girl!

I would use the labels when I give baked goods to friends. I love to bake and give away. My latest baking craze is sourdough bread from a starter. I have to 'feed' it every 3-4 days and use it. I keep teachers, friends and neighbors in homemade bread. Thanks for the chance, CindyML

Julie said...

I would put those on my aprons, purses, toddler towels, carry-all bags, etc! I could never find cute lables like these!(I wanted to really have a tag on items before Etsy shop opened!) Too bad my husband cannot use these on his jewelery!

Julie said...

I'm a follower also! =)

Meg said...

I love the labels. I don't do anything professionally but I love to make gifts for people. Also, my best friend and I do handmade swaps every month (she lives across the country!) and i would love to put some labels on my swaps for her. . .OR . . .surprise her with her own labels in my next swap. I love them. I. Want. Them.

Pick me!

I would love some labels!
Something bright yellow with blue, like the blue in the twitter bird.
I would use them for my etsy shop fabric goodies!

I could totally use this, I am trying to get a shop going. I make bags, baby gift sets, place mats, nursing cover ups etc. You can check out some of the stuff I make on my blog on www.radpots.com. And we are hoping that I will have my new shop up and and going by the sew mama sew giveaway day.

Jekka said...

Your blog from your husband was so, so nice. What a wonderful birthday gift!!!

I love the labels, especially the ribbon/hemp labels. I am a papercrafter and a baker so I am sure that I could incorporate the ribbon labels into almost every gift. Something along the lines of "From My Heart to your Hand"

I noticed that in a few of the comments, you had some followers from other Etsy stores. Any chance of getting a list of those stores for future purchases? Just a thought.

I follow you, as you know.

Melanieshea said...

I have SOOO been wanting some labels. I have an Etsy shop (melanieshea78.etsy.com). I "specialize" in decorative applique hand towels, but I also do bags, pillowcase dresses and shirts, and a few other things.
