Mia Headband Giveaway

I am happy to share with you that I already have a few giveaways lined up!! Yay (hope this makes you happy too)!! So I thought it was only appropriate to start with a Shabby Lane giveaway (round 2 for you lucky facebook followers!).

I chose the Mia Headband as today's giveaway item, as it is one that I absolutely adore. It's dainty. sweet. and of course a bit shabby. The perfect little accessory for newborn photo shoots, a sweet gift for a toddler's birthday, or even a trendy piece for mama (Mother's day is coming up!). Very cute doubled-up with another Mia band too! I hope to have some professional photos to share with you very soon.

How to enter this giveaway? All you need to do is leave a comment saying who you would give the Mia headband to (or maybe you'll be keeping it for yourself!). Winner can choose the size of band.

Thank you

I was super-excited when Rebecca Cooper asked me if I would like to host a giveaway on her blog last week! I have been following her simple as that blog for quite some time now and I am a big fan! Isn't it amazing how someone can motivate and inspire you to be more creative, organized, etc, etc, etc. over the internet?! Well that is what happens everytime I read her blog posts. If you are a fan of scrapbooking or photography, then you are in for a special treat....she is amazing at both!  Plus she gives her readers the opportunity to be part of some great giveaways (like mine! hehee!!).  So head on over to her blog and visit this mama of four (I know!!) and get a glimpse of her beautiful family and all of her talents. Thank you Rebecca!

Rebecca has also taken some wonderful photos using my Sophia headbands. Here are just a few. Love them.

Welcome to my Shabby Lane blog! I admit that I hummed and hawed a bit about starting this blog, but now that I have....I'm pretty darn excited about it!! It is here that I want to give you some sneak peeks of new Shabby Lane boutique items, share other wonderful baby & children's products, have a bit of 'mama time' (even if it is in cyberworld), and maybe host a giveaway or two (wink).

Want to know who you're talking to? I'm Tracy. I am currently on leave from my regular job as a public health nurse, but right now, I am working extra long hours as a mama of two kidlets (17 1/2 months apart)!! Life is good...really.

Shabby Lane boutique was born after some changes were made to my existing 'lil' sweet pea' hair accessory business. Just a little venture that had me making up headbands after the birth of my daughter almost 2 years ago! With Shabby Lane, I have set-up shop over on Etsy (ohhh, the hours I have spent perusing on Etsy) and am able to share my creations with customers from all over the world (whoo)! Hope you have a chance to check out my shop, and maybe you'll find that perfect little something you didn't even know you were looking for (smile)!
