***CLOSED***Meandering Mondays: Handmade Reversible Little Girls Pinafore Giveaway

Thank you for your interest. The giveaway is now closed as of Nov. 3rd, 2009 at 8 P.M. EST

Good Morning,
In her etsy shop at, Judy S. has many really cute handmade garments for both boys and girls in preemie, infant and toddler sizes. She was nice enough to donate an adorable handmade little girls pinafore for this weeks blog giveaway. In case you aren't familiar with this term, a pinafore is what is commonly referred to as a jumper. It is a  sleeveless, collarless dress intended to be worn over a blouse, shirt or sweater. The pinafore, that Judy has so graciously donated, is a toddler's size 2 and is reversible which means you are essentially getting two outfits in one.
One side is solid red with an adorable applique of a reindeer wrapped up in Christmas lights  and the reverse side is a red and cream stripe fabric with an embroidered definition of girl, which reads "girl, n.: curls with giggles". Both fabrics are 100% cotton. The red solid side is baby wale corduroy.  The pinafore has button closures on both the straps and the sides. You could pair this with a solid white or solid green long sleeve onesie to make an excellent holiday gift or keep it for your own little one as a perfect holiday outfit.

So now I know you want to know how to win this adorable handmade garment. Well here are the giveaway entry rules:

 If you make a purchase from Judy's shop between Oct. 26th and Nov. 4th you will receive 5 additional entries WHEN your payment clears. Leave me a comment letting me know that you purchased an item from ArtsyCrafty and once I verify with Judy that the payment has cleared then I will add your name to the "hat" 5 more times.

That allows each entrant up to 16 total chances at snagging this great prize!

Leave a SEPARATE comment for EACH entry you qualify for. You must have completed the first entry according to the instructions to be eligible for any bonus entries.


This giveaway is open to US and International participants. This giveaway begins today and will end on Teusday November 3rd, 2009 at 7pm EST.  The winner will be determined using the free random list generator at Your name will be added to the list one time for each eligible entry that you submit. I will post the winner here on my blog on Thurs. Nov. 5th.

Only comments containing all of the requested information will be eligible for entry. The winner must contact me to confirm they wish to receive the prize, and to provide me with the mailing address to which you wish the item to be mailed, within two days of my email notifying you that you have won. If you fail to contact me within two days of being notified of winning you will forfeit the prize and it will be awarded to the next person on the randomly generated list of entrants. 
The winner will receive the item directly from the giveaway sponsor (Judy). I will forward your mailing information to her and she will ship the item to you. 

 For Potential Sponsors
I never ask that a giveaway sponsor send me any merchandise personally. It is the responsibility of the sponsor to pay shipping charges and to ensure that the item is shipped in a timely manner. For this reason each sponsor determines if a giveaway will or will not be open to international participants.

Good luck to everyone!

***Note on the JaneasJewels Giveaway***
In my opinion, the last giveaway was a great success. We had 190 entries from a total of 73 unique participants. That means that the etsy shop owner who sponsored the giveaway and donated the free item received at least 73 unique visits to her shop. I will have more specific stats about the amount of traffic that the giveaway generated for last weeks sponsor in the next few days and I will post them in the left side bar. Please check back to see what effect the giveaway had on Janaes etsy shop. I hope others will consider sponsoring a giveaway as well.
