Have you noticed things got a whole lot prettier around here recently? That's thanks to Franchesca, mom to Jenna Belle and owner/creator of Small Bird Studio! Franchesca generously donated a blog makeover, and I'm just loving the new look! :) In addition to super awesome and affordable blog makeovers (she also did my personal blog), Franchesca also does beautiful custom art pieces, and more. Make sure to check out her site when you have a sec!
And now, the giveaway!
Tina, the face behind Mama Mia Custom Hand-Stamped Jewelry, has generously offered to donate a $30 gift certificate to her wonderful shop. Tina is a babyloss mom herself, as her precious twins Sofia and Ellie were born too early on April 25th, 2009. She blogs about them here (and hopefully she'll submit her story to this site soon too, right?! ;))
Here are a couple of examples of her beautiful work:
Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope is all about spreading awareness and letting those suffering from pregnancy/infant loss know that they are not alone. So, this giveaway is all about spreading the message and getting the word out about this new site.
Here's how to enter. Please leave a comment for each that you do:
- Grab the Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope button and put it up on your own blog or website. You can get it off the right-hand side of the main page; just copy the code and paste it into a new HTML "gadget" on your blog
- Share the link to this site on an online pregnancy/loss support forum you belong to (Babycenter, the Bump, Justmommies, etc)
- Share an idea of how we can get the word out to more people (especially those not already active in blogland.)
- Leave a suggestion on how we can improve this site (it really is a work in progress!)
The winner of the $30 Mama Mia gift certificate will be announced on Monday morning!
I hope to be able to do lots of giveaways here. Because they're super fun, and because I know something as small as winning a little blog giveaway can totally make the day/week of a babyloss mama :) If you have an idea for a contest, or are interested in donating something for a future giveaway, please let me know.
Thanks everyone, and thanks Tina for donating such a wonderful prize!
Kristin (and the rest of the Faces Team)
