Ok, first I need to apologize for doing this today instead of last night!!!! The hubby was working and I was here with all 3 kids that are ALL INFECTED with cabin fever!!!!!! So to put it mildly, they were acting kinda crazy! lol! I didn't want to be on the computer and have my house fall apart while I sat there and tried to figure out who the winners were!

Ok, second, giveaways are soooooo stressful on me!!!!!! I want to make sure that I do things ABSOLUTELY fair!!!!! I'm always worried, "did I leave someone out?!?!", "did I count right?!?!?" "did I give it enough time??!", "did I make it too confusing!!!??" AHH! you get the picture:) Since I did something a little different and it was a little confusing I picked a winner old school style! I found names all over the place, on my blog, on my wall and on different posts. Not wanting to leave anyone out I wrote EVERYONE's name down (that made a comment) and then wrote down who sent them. I tallied up the # of referrals and came up with a TIE!!!!!! Jordan Michelle Boyer and FORTY TOES, you guys TIED!!!!!!!:) I counted over and over again, trust me I felt like Santa Clause, made a list and checked it twice! Well, I actually checked more than twice, tee hee:) SO Jordan Michelle Boyer and Forty Toes send me an email at and let me know what you would like, the Mary Mary quite Contrary headband or a $25 credit to anything in my shop:)

Ok, for the next winner, I had my son, Angel, pick out a name! He witnessed me write ALL the names down and double check so that I didn't miss anyone!!! He picked the name and the winner is.......

Contact me at and let me know what you would like as well!!!:)

P.S. Angel wanted me to let everyone know that he just woke up (right as I was starting to do everyones names) and still has bedhead, he was so embarressed, LOL!!!! He is really starting to become a young man! =)

I will be doing more giveaways here in the near future but will featuring them hear on my blog!!!! I've heard rumors that Facebook was closing pages down and I DO NOT want to be one of those pages!!!!! I think it's in their rules that you can't do giveaways. So I will be doing them here on my blog but Facebook will be my main advertisement tool!!! :)
THANK YOU EVERYONE who participated!!!!!!

GIVEAWAY time!!!!!!

Well, it's been a while since I've done a giveaway and I'm way over due!! I also promised one once I hit 500 fans on my fanpage!!:) So this a multiple giveaway! I'm doing TWO! One for you and One for a friend!

Here are the rules as follows....
1) Share this giveaway on facebook with a link, refer a friend to "like" my page and make sure they mention that YOU sent them:)Their comments MUST BE LEFT on my facebook Fanpage!! Winner for this giveaway will be the person with the MOST referrals! Feel free to share on any of the Matilda Jane fanatics pages since I offer M2M items for Matilda Jane pieces. Winner will receive my new headband or a $25 credit to anything in my shop. This will be the first giveaway
2)New followers will need to leave a comment on who sent them on my fanpage and I will use Random.Org to choose a winner from that post, Winner will receive my new headband or a $25 credit towards anything in my shop. This will be the 2nd giveaway.(note this giveaway is meant for the friend you refer and not the person who referred them, so that there's something in it for them too:)

Winners will be announced on Saturday evening at 9 P.M.! If winner doesn't claim their winnings within 24 hours a second winner will be chosen.

Ok, the other thing I will be trying out is my "Introduction Pricing"!!! This is when I will offer THREE of my newest creations at a LOW price!!!! I will only offer them at that price until all three are sold and once they are sold the item will be offered in my shop at regular price! I will be offering my "Mary, Mary, quite contrary" headband for $15!!!!! I will sell this for $24.50 in my shop once all three for $15 sell. I may not be able to do this for all new items due to cost of materials or time management. I won't tell you how long it takes me to make my flowers but I will say it takes OVER 2 hours and when you divide $15 into 2...well, you see I am making very little profit on them:)

You can purchase the $15 Mary, Mary quite contrary here on my blog on the right hand side where the buy it now button is. Shipping will be $2. To explain a little bit about why I am doing this (and I have to give 100% credit to Heather from Fabulous Fun Finds for this idea) I feel this gives customers a chance to experience some Princy n Paris products in their lives for those who may not have bought any of my items. I know $24.50 seems like a lot for a pretty hair piece but a LOT of it has to do with the time I put into each piece! I hand cut each petal and handsew each bead (with the exception of the tiny tiny seed beads that I sometimes use). This is very time consuming but I do it because I love making pretty things!:) Paris is just now getting to the age where she WANTS to wear hair pretties, lol!!! I use to fight her to get her to keep them on but now she goes and gets what she wants to wear for that day:) Momma may need to help her pick but so far that doesn't seem to bother her;)

Playing Peek a boo for our lil mini photo shoot:)

Ok, I tried to explain this as simply as I could but I just read the details to my husband and he was so lost, lol! Granted he doesn't participate in any giveaways and is not too familiar with how they can work. Please feel free to email me with any questions!!!
