30 Days of Giveaways: {the finale}

For this, the finale, the rules are a bit different.

I love to stir things up that way.

Winners will be chosen from the comments left on this post only.

And you can enter as many times as you like.

This final day will include eight giveaways.

Fun, huh?

Here we go!

1. This darling dress created by Joy from Sew Blessed.

It’s a size 3T. And ridiculously cute.

I’m thinkin’ my Vivienne would rock this little number.

2. Joy also generously donated this precious apron.

Oh my. So sweet.

It’s child sized, and looks positively adorable on my Sophie (who wears a 7) but I imagine it would work for a wide range of sizes.

Sophie had a hard time letting it go.

I know the feeling.

3. Dusty at Adoption Voyages has donated a Deluxe Package Website.

Details of what is included in this $100 package are here.

Winning family must:
– a China NSN LID no later than June 29, 2006
– a China SN pre-approval
– or be in a comparable stage of another adoption program

4. A darling set of bows created by Joy at For Our Bao Bei.

She makes all sorts of adorable creations to help bring home her newest daughter, Vivian, from China.

5. And she also included this little guy. For the little guys.

He’s a tooth monster. With a ‘mouth’ on the front that holds newly lost teeth.

Sure to make tooth fairy visits just that much more exciting.

6. This lovely necklace from Sara at My Quilted Heart.

Sara, an adoptive mama, hopes to use her artwork to bless orphans and other adoptive families as well.

This 1″ pendant necklace is embellished with a delicate watercolor painting that features the Chinese character for faith.

And dangles from an 18″ silver ball necklace.

7. These gorgeous hair bows are from my friend Jennifer.

She began making these to fund her adoption, but isn’t currently taking any orders.

So, until she starts taking orders again, you’ll have to win yours here.

Winner will receive all these beautiful hair flowers from Ribbons for Mei Mei.

8. These three beautiful handmade bracelets were donated by my friend Bev.

Bev makes these as a way to help fund her adoption.

They are bringing home a darling little girl home from China through the SN program.

She creates these unique bracelets by hand using paper, and then sealing it and adding beads and charms.

Winner will receive all three of these.

I’ll randomly select 9 winners from the comments left on this post only.

You can enter as many times as you like.

And that’s it!

Hope y’all had as much fun during the 30 Days of Giveaways as I did!

    19. Ok, one more. Can't resist. Might actually win? NEED THE HAIRBOWS by Mei Mei! :o)

      Merry Christmas!

    20. Let's see, I could use each and every one of these items. I'll comment randomly throughout the day on each of them and why I would love to have it! Surely today I'll win something…

    21. The dress is smashing! Too small for mine, but I could give it away. I have 40 nieces.

    22. I love the apron and know someone really cute in my household that would look adorable in it and I know she would love it as she is wanting more and more to bake with me.

    23. Truly Blessed says:

      I'd love to win — LOVE the necklace!

    24. Truly Blessed says:

      I also love the hairbows — gorgeous!!!

    25. This has been fun! Even though I have yet to win, I have enjoyed it. Maybe today will be my lucky day!

    26. Such a fun giveaway month! But I need to win one:) HA. Great gifts.

    27. For The Love of Four Chinasprouts says:

      Love the hair-bows, necklace, and headband. Looking so forward to watching your trip to Poppy. We have received PA for our precious 6th daughter from China, 3rd SN. We are now waiting to receive our homestudy update in hand to apply to CIS! Have a wonderful Christmas with your precious family!

    28. I really love that dress!

    29. I think the blog prize is really cool (and sure could use ideas for my blog), but I'm not quite sure if I qualify. I don't totally understand the rules. I have 2 from China already – first NSN and second SN.

    30. The apron is just precious!

    31. For The Love of Four Chinasprouts says:

      Oops, meant to say hair-bows, necklace, and bracelet! My mind has already left for the holiday!

    32. The bracelets are wonderful and with the 3 females in my household we would all be happy. They are beautiful!

    33. Jerry and Christy says:

    36. The Raudenbush Family says:

    37. I love all of the hair accessories. And we will hopefully have our Lilly home by the summer!

    38. The tooth pillow would be perfect for our son. Not that he needs one at three, but it's never too early to prepare!

    39. The Raudenbush Family says:

      What a fun month of giveaways! Thanks for doing all this!

    40. What wonderful things! I have just loved seeing all of the talented people who have given so generously here. This has been such a fun thing!

    42. Daisy Dreams says:

      Ohhh, I'd like to win something! I won something in someone's raffle not long ago but never got my "prize." So I'm hoping I might be lucky this time!!

    43. Love, Love, Love all of it!!!
      What fun this was and a great way to introduce a large audience to some incredible gift ideas.
      Thanks for sharing!

    44. Daisy Dreams says:

      With so many girly things in this house, I think the tooth fairy monster for my soon-to-be little boy would be perfect!!

    45. But, my absolute favorite today is the necklace. I want, want, want that! When I think of the very special sights of China after the children, the very first thing that always comes to mind is that flower. And faith – what faith I've needed for the long journey to my children and what faith I've needed on the journey with my children.

    46. Daisy Dreams says:

      Ok…..last one! Happy holidays to you and yours :)

    47. prechrswife says:

      I'm not entering for my own prize, but I would love to be entered for the rest. As for the person asking about the "blog" prize, it is for a travel journal website for someone who is currently in the adoption process.

    48. This was amazing. I have loved seeing the gifts and I am humbled by your generosity. Please don't put my name in as my family would like to give our entry to the next person that comments.

      Merry Christmas and God Bless.

      Hugs and Many RETURNED blessings to you my friend!!

    74. The Raudenbush Family says:

      And, another entry from me. :) I'm hoping for some fun Christmas prizes!

    75. Stefanie,

      I wanted to say "Thanks" for doing all of the giveaways but also for inspiring all of us who are on the adoption journey. Your faith provides a light to those of us who are sometimes downtrodden due to the process. I hope you and yours have a wonderfully Merry Christmas! Oh, and did you see our South may have a White Christmas this year!!! Woo hoo!

    397. My girly would look really cute in the dress!

    398. Cutie CUTE!

    399. We just lost our tooth container! So that would be awesome to replace it!

    400. Are you going to do this again next year? I wanna contribute to the offerings!

    401. Fingers crossed from across the country in AZ!

    402. So, the goal is to sit here…

    403. on the computer…

    404. all day long?

    405. We shall pretend that…

    406. Christmas is not just….

    407. two days away?

    408. And pretend we already have…

    409. our shopping done…

    410. our house clean…

    411. and our presents wrapped?

    412. Nah, I'll quit now & let others have a shot. :)

    413. Oh, I also wanted to….

    414. …thank all the wonderful people…

    415. …who contributed all these wonderful prizes.

    416. Thank you!

    417. The necklace is amazing.

    418. Maybe the "monster" would help the tooth fairy in our home to be a bit more prompt=0) That way…they won't need to pay interest. hahaha.

    419. Apron is adorable!

    420. Merry Christmas to all!

    421. That apron is SO darling!

    422. Now that I had a chance to look through the items again, I think the necklace is my favorite!

    423. or maybe the bracelet!

    424. Yep, I'm still here!

    425. I also have a girly that would just look adorable in all those hair bows!

    426. Did I mention that my girl recently gave her hair a trim… by herself! Maybe the bows would help distract the viewers from the bald patch!

    427. Ooooh, that apron is delicious!

    428. Thank…

    429. …you…

    430. …Stanfanie…

    431. …so…

    447. Well now I'm just getting my hopes up!

    448. But if I won the bracelets I could keep one and share the others with my older girls!

    449. Shepherd &

    450. But I still love that dress the most! It's the bee's knees!

    451. Oh please pick me! Or someone else is nice too, cause God really does give me everything I need already. But one can always make use of more hair bows!

    452. Merry Christmas to y'all!

    453. And a Happy New year!

    454. Ok… now my entries seem to be getting a tad ridiculous! I'd better go bathe my little ones. but thank you, really!

    455. One more thing… my boy says the tooth pillow is his favorite. Which is good 'cause he'd look silly in the dress or bows!

    456. Vivienne &

    457. The Dear Family says:

      Any of these would be cute for my current and future girls. we are waiting on a call for our SN referral, and could be matched at any time.

We received our referral for our second daughter on Monday night! It has been a wonderful week for us! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    590. I'd like to say that I'd share that necklace, but I wouldn't! Too pretty!

    591. Maybe I'd wrap up my booty, if I won, and unwrap it just for fun!

    594. …and toes too!…

    607. I've never won anything from a blog giveaway.

    608. Maybe this will be my lucky day!

    609. I am curious if you read every comment left on these giveaways?

    610. Or do you just pick the names?

    611. Because it sure is a lot of comments to read.

    612. I'm not helping by making the number of comments even longer.

    613. So cool! Gotta love the 30 days of Giveaways! And this finale? is amazing!!

    614. I am kind-of running out of things to comment about. :-)

    615. WOw! What fun! Yeeehhaaaahhh! :)

    616. Just because we can enter as many times as we want… :)

    617. I do have time to sit around and leave comments though. All my presents are wrapped.

    618. And all the toys have been taken out of their toy packaging and twisty ties and plastic.

    619. And.. well… just maybe one more, of course. Because there are some pretty awesome things to be won up there! :)

    620. Stickers have been applied to barbie accessories.

    621. Yip, yip, yip…yoweeeeee! That was fun! And, all these 'things' that you're giving away are sooo creative and fun,too. Kudos to those who made and donated items. :)

    622. I do really love this comment all you want thing! πŸ˜‰

    623. And batteries have been inserted.

    624. I enjoyed every minute of playing with the toys before they were wrapped.

    625. Hope my children enjoy them as much as I did.

    626. My comments don't make as much sense when other peoples comments are inbetween thoughts. Maybe it's time to stop. :-)

    627. But I really want to win.

    628. So many cute things!

    629. Bracelets are too cute!!

    630. fingers crossed for this and for your LOA too!

    631. ok, forget the fingers crossed for the LOA. Let's go straight to the Big Man and pray for your LOA to arrive soon! It's all in His hands.

    632. I think you should get one of the dresses for Vivi and Poppy! They are adorable!

    633. The Steeles says:

    644. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all!

    645. Are you as excited to give these away as we are to see who the winners are?

    646. These items are cute, but they are representative of some REALLY creative ladies!

    647. I hope this is my lucky day!

    648. Merry Christmas!!!

    649. I hope you don't read all these comments. Just draw some names. Really, most of us are just rambling!

    650. Are you sure it's not 31 days of give-away?

    651. The day's not over and I'm not done….

    652. In fact, I feel a second wind coming on…..

    653. I might even goes as far to call myself the energizer bunny.

    654. And I'll just keep going and going

    655. and going and going.

    656. I have 2 three your olds that surely could make a heavy use of that cute little tooth keeper!

    657. You think you'll hit 100o comments? I think it's VERY possible!

    658. The fabrics on that apron are to-die-for!

      Stephanie the WONDER WOMAN
      Had a so many sweet kiddos
      and if you ever saw them
      You would see how much they grows
      all of the other mommies
      thought "how does she do it all"
      they never contemplated
      Stephanie was having a ball
      Then one foggy fall morning
      Stephanie heart did say
      Stephanie there is another one
      and she is coming your way!
      Now Poppy is in China
      waiting for her family to say
      They can not wait to see her
      on her forever family day!

      Woo! Wish I'd been on the internet more yesterday! Just got to this post this morning… Hope I win something (though I hope it's nothing for little girls, as I have none; boys rock!)

    733. Amy Murphy says:

      What an amazing 30 days it has been. Such neat items. I hope you can do it again some other time. Maybe next time there will be more things for boys; the vast majority were things for little girls. :( But what a wonderful thing you've done here!

    734. Amy Murphy says:

      I've only ever won something once in my life, so the chances are slim here. I'll post as many times as I dare, though, to boost my chances. :)

    735. Amy Murphy says:

      I hope you and your family have a very wonderful Christmas!

    736. Okay, I'm in! I have watched all month some fabulous finds. Merry Christmas to your blessed family!

    737. Amy Murphy says:

      I simply love reading your blog and learning about your beautiful family.

    738. Amy Murphy says:

      So excited to see your journey to your new little beauty!

    739. Amy Murphy says:

      What can I write now to boost my chances of winning? haha!
      Love your site!
