I need help so lets have a contest!

So we took down our daughters Crib/Toddler bed and got her a twin bed! I was excited because it finally justified me redecorating her room! Can you tell we love COLOR COLOR and more COLOR!

So I'm wanting to get a vinyl to go over her bed since I don't want to hang anything that low for her to tear down, so a vinyl sticker will be perfect.  SOO I want to play a game :) Here's all you need to do:

Christmas Giveaway

Its been almost a month since our last giveaway! Thats a bit too long in my opinion!

This giveaway is going to be a little different. In the spirit of giving and the economic struggles lots of people are facing right now, I'd love to give away some items to families who could use a little pick me up this time of year.

Email me at the name of a person you'd like to nominate and the gender and approximate ages of their kids also a short story of why they could use this. Doesn't need to go into too much detail :) It doesn't have to necessarily be a financial struggle, but just let me know of someone you think would need this.

I'll be taking emails through tomorrow night! I won't post the names of the families that win, I will contact the person who nominated them individually and let them know if they were drawn.

Favorite Things Giveaway!!!

Anyone else LOVE Oprah's Favorite Things list that she puts out in November??? Well this is Brittybirds little etsy version ;)

Over the last year and a half I have been asked to do somethings that I either can't do or can't do as well as some other people I've met :) I have found some really AWESOME etsy (and a few non etsy) shops in that time and want to share them with my customers!

I will be giving away quite a few prizes along with 2 BIG prizes!!! The big prizes equal over 150$ in retail value!! There is a boys big box and a girls big box. The items in each "box" come from each of my favorite shops (including some from my own)

You will earn 1 entry per item on this list! You need to let me know of each item you have done and they will be entered into a spread sheet in the order that I receive them!

  1. Give me your NAME, EMAIL and which prize you'd like boy OR girl and must Like Brittybird on Facebook! I need all of this information first off... none of the other entries below will count if I don't get this information and you must choose boy or girl, you can't choose both. This way a Girls Momma doesn't end up with a box full of stuff she can't use and vice versa. I want you to win what you'd like! There will also be other smaller prizes that will be gender specific as well and a few gender neutral things.

Vinise's Boutique Hair Bows

I found Vinises Hair Bow Boutique on Etsy almost a year ago! I can make bows but Heather makes BOWS!!! I LOVE her shop and she is an awesome lady to work with! She works so hard for her customers and makes AMAZING custom bows! (this is the first bow that I ever purchased from Heather :) It started it all!)
She makes my favorite Made to Match Gymboree bows... and of course I've become addicted to Gymboree and TOTALLY addicted to Vinises Bows!!!

Here's some of the CUTE bows Heather has made for my daughter Ava over the last year :)


I found Stitcheroos on Etsy a year ago when I was searching for outfits for Ava's first birthday! Soon after looking through her items I knew I was in love! It was also fun to see that she only lived 20 minutes away!
I emailed her about doing a custom design for Ava's birthday because two of our favorite things were frogs and lady bugs but I couldn't find anything with both items on it! She was quick to respond and created a really fun design and made a BEAUTIFUL birthday set for us.
We went all out and got the onesie, diaper cover, tutu, bib, hat, everything you could possibly want for a 1 year olds birthday!
They looked awesome in her birthday photos and she recently did another set for us "Yo Gabba Gabba" themed! Ava loved the shirt and kept pointing at the characters! We got so many compliments on her outfit when we took her to see Yo Gabba Gabba live this week!We already have in the works Ava's 2nd birthday outfit and Adrienne is so wonderful to work with! You won't regret getting any of Stitcheroos items! She does AMAZING embroidery work and everything matches perfect!

My Little Legs

Believe it or not I also found My Little Legs about a year ago :) I was on the hunt for lots of fun things for Ava's 1st birthday!
Love this photo it has Vinises Hair Bow, Sitcheroos outfit and My Little Legs!!!

I had tried other leg warmers but they either cost way too much or they didn't stretch enough for Ava's chunky legs... Then I found My Little Legs! AMAZING prices and they are great quality! AND they have free shipping and great turn around time!
Ava owns at least 30 pairs and they are perfect to go under skirts and dresses and have lots of boys styles too.


I have had the pleasure to work with My2lilpixies a few times now
She has an awesome selection of nylon headbands and very fun girl accessories. I am PARTICULARLY fond of her ruffle bum covers. When Ava started wearing 2T clothes at 1, some of her dresses and skirts no longer came with diaper covers! I was wanting a great solution to this "problem" of mine. I found her on etsy and ordered a few covers. Once they arrived I had to have every color :) They fit Ava great, they are soft and look so cute underneath all her dresses or all by themselves! They are a GREAT price and ship quick!
