Recently I was the lucky winner of a contest held by Scarlet Threads, a boutique, specializing in unique products designed and produced by talented seamstresses in rural Asia, with this photo of my boys representing our state (Iowa) while wearing a Scarlet Threads Apron.
(We're from Iowa, the corn had JUST been planted and hadn't sprouted yet ... so the tractor and 2 of the cutest Iowa boys was a good alternative.)
How sweet to win the contest. It was by chance that I took the photo of Nolan on the tractor and thought to throw the Phoebe Apron in too--(doesn't he look handsome EVEN in the ruffles?!?) ... and Easton just happened to sneak into the photo too after I had my husband take what I thought was the "real" photo of me in the apron! Too funny.)
So, to bring some needed attention to a fundraiser that is dear to me, http://blessingsahundredfold.blogspot.com, I'm passing on this blessing TO YOU! This beautiful apron (valued at 25.00) can be yours! It would be perfect in your kitchen or on the patio next to the barbeque ... and as an owner of a Scarlet Threads apron myself, I will vouch for the fact that things just turn out better while wearing it! Prove me wrong.
Here are the details on how to WIN!
To win this gorgeous apron:
1 • leave me a comment on this post (maybe with the name of your favorite recipe.)
2 • Visit the fundraising site http://blessingsahundredfold.blogspot.com/ and leave The Rippee Family an uplifting comment. (seriously, you can definitely come up with a few positive words of encouragement!)
But that's not all ... there are also several MORE ways to earn MORE entries too.
3 • Donate to the Chip-In fund on the http://blessingsahundredfold.blogspot.com/ site and you'll earn even MORE entries when you donate!!! (yes, entries here AND there!) 1 entry=$10 & 4 entries=$25
4 • Spread the word! Put our button on your blog, tell your chat group about The Rippee's story or make a special post asking folks to visit our sites. Truly this will only be a success if YOU help. Your hands and voice will be the difference for this little girl!
5 • And a third way to get an extra entry is if you purchase an apron on the Scarlet Threads website for your own giveaway OR purchase one for yourself! (please leave me a comment to let me know you did!)
Here's a brief description of the apron from Scarlet Threads:
Functional yet fun, this apron is perfect for kneading the sweetest dough. Combining retro flowers with a geometric pattern, the dark blue fabric is a perfect blend of funky and feminine. The eye-catching button on the adjustable neck-strap makes this apron a perfect fit for any woman! A favorite among many of our testers, this apron is up to your toughest kitchen tasks. We know you'll love it; just promise to share the cookies!
The give-away fundraiser for The Rippee Family on http://blessingsahundredfold.blogspot.com/ ends soon. I am praying that we can reach $2,000 by then so the next set of fees are covered for The Rippees to proceed full-steam ahead once they receive their next approval. By donating not only are you granting a huge blessing on this family and this precious child, but you will be registered for this apron AND also that HUMONGOUS list of prizes on the "blessings a hundred fold" site! (May 23rd and June 9th posts)
