Apron Giveaway

Most of you spend plenty of hours in the kitchen every week. Many of us also have the pleasure of having some pint sized helpers as well. My latest sewing creations are something I know you'll love. A few aprons are finally finished and ready to be purchased from my etsy shop From Head to Toe. I have one women's half apron finished just like the one featured in this week's giveaway and several aprons for children ready to be shipped. This week I'm also offering free shipping. So take advantage of it now. All aprons are $15.
I was tickled to see it was Apron-fest over at one of my favorite sites Apronista. I decided to join in the fun and to create an apron just for this occasion. This little beauty, a half adult women's apron, which I like to call Strawberry Limeade and could be yours.
You have three ways to enter this giveaway. Please make sure you enter them in three separate comments, and give me a way to contact you if you are not a blogger. I will choose a number and the more comments you post the more chances to win.

1. Leave a comment telling me one of your favorite things to create in the kitchen.

2. Visit my Etsy Shop From Head 2 Toe then come back and comment about what you like, or what you'd like to see.

3. Become a subscriber to Effortless Savings or add me to your blog roll, if you are already a subscriber or I'm on your blog roll just post a comment telling me so.

This giveaway will close Sunday August 9th at 10:00 p.m. central time. I can't wait see who wins! Check out Apronista for more giveaways this week.


Good Luck!
Erica

P.S. I also have a few Baby Topichiki's (shoes) and nursing covers still available. If you live in the Wichita area and would like to pay cash for anything you see send me a message and we can certainly arrange a place to meet.

  73. I love to bake, especially in the fall & winter, so my kitchen is usually full of the smell of brownies, quick breads, and cookies [all kinds]. Cute apron, by the way...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Your confetti & orange house slippers are cute! Look comfy, too...

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have always been partial to the full apron but your Strawberry Limeade half Apron is so fun looking.

    As for what I like to do in the kitchen...my favorite thing is home canning. Since we have our garden this year, it has made for dome really fun days around the canning pot. Even Hubby has a new found passion for whipping up something to put into those jars. The best part of it all is that it's something that gives Hubby & I yet another reason to to be together in the kitchen. Added to that is the satisfaction of opening your pantry doors and knowing that those pretty little jars filling the cupboard shelves are something you did yourself and saved you grocery money.
