My First Giveaway!



















To celebrate reaching 100 fans on my Facebook Fan Page, and to celebrate the opening of my blog, I am giving away a teeny tiny doll sized Evie skirt...AND one for your kiddo (up to size 7). The doll skirt was at the request of the fans ;) (I must admit, I love saying 'The Fans'...I rub it in my husbands face, like "Nya Nya, I have Fans and you don't" OK, I don't really do that, but I do think it's hilarious to write "The Fans" LOL!!)

For those of you who know nothing about Soren Lorensen Design, you can check out my Etsy shop. I make clothing for kids using upcycled and new knits. Comfortable clothing...my daughter would refuse it otherwise. Finley, my daughter, is an interesting little specimen, I'll write more about her another day :)

OK, so here are the details of the contest:

Post a comment on this blog letting me know what YOU want to see me blog about.
That's it! And if history is any indicator, there is a fine chance I will do as I am told by you!! :)

Contest ends April 16, 2010 at midnight PST! Open to US and Canada.
If you are international and want to participate there will be a $12 fee to cover postage. I wish I didn't have to do that, but man it's pricey to ship overseas!! :(

Want extra Chances?
