Win a Free Apron!

Stumble Upon Toolbar



I entered the Mommy Life Apron Contest and won first place! WooHoo! The prizes Barbara so sweetly offered are: The Mommy Survival Guide, written by Barbara herself, and this beautiful apron... the same apron I am selling!

Since I have plenty of these (available for the low, low price of $32) I am holding a drawing to give away the one Barbara generously provided. To enter your name once, leave a comment. To enter again, link to my apron offer . As a bonus, I'll enter your name again if you participated in Barbara's contest. As easy as 1,2,3.

I will hold the drawing on Friday, January 26th. Be sure to get your entries in by Thursday at midnight and check back here for the winner.

Yeah! I love the aprons and might have to save up for one made by you if I don't win! :)

Congratulations on winning the contest, and isn't that fitting and funny you won that very apron you make?

P.S. I saw your wormy post and must say I can hardly wait until my little men are storing such things in our fridge. It will be like back when my brothers did that...snakes come to mind.

Honey said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and for entering me into your contest. I am linking to your apron offer right now. :)

I don't even have a pretty apron. I have one apron, only one. My mom made it for me when I first got married....15 years ago. Yeah, I need a new one.

An Iowa Mom said...

Thanks for holding this contest. Please enter me. I LOVE this apron! I think I would actually do more cooking/baking if I had one! LOL!

I don't know how you do it. Coming up with such cool stuff while homeschooling and raising 6 children. I only have 4 and 2 of them go to public school and I can't seem to accomplish anything creatively. You have inspired me to do SOMETHING today! Maybe some notecards or a quilt top :) I better get to work! :)

I will also be linking to your offer on my blog. Thanks a bunch!

chilihead said...

Oh, I have been wanting an apron! And this one is adorable. I'm crossing my fingers and eyes and hoping for the best! ;)

What an adorable apron!
I'm still using my all cotton apron made during the Great Depression. Maybe it's time to give in & get a new one?!?
Or, another one (if I win your contest!) I couldn't stand hurting my aprons feelings by out&out replacing her.

Sarah said...

Please enter me! :) Thank you.

Hi there again! I would love to be entered in the drawing for the apron. I was also a contestant in Barbara's contest (I believe #10--we have 6 children, but I was pictured with 3 of my girls wearing appliqued victorian lady aprons and a photo inset of my twin baby girls.)

That is so cool that you won the contest--how funny! I also think you look VERY young for having 6 children! ;-)

I am a homeschooling mom of five under nine, and I would love to own this apron. My husband is a leader of a pregnancy center in New York, so this is a very busy season for us. I need curlier hair and whiter teeth without the use of a curling iron and teeth whitener. Thank you for your contest! jrhrdn1@aol.com

I, too, love aprons. One of my favorites is a white battenburg lace one...not very practical as it shows every stain but, oh, so pretty.
