Featured Artist (Contest Closed-Winner Announced)

Hi Everyone! First of all, thanks for coming to our blog! This is our first feature and we hope everyone joins in for the fun & goodies! We jumped the gun a little bit by posting the contest details at the Etsy shop last night, and we just couldn't wait until 2pm to start the fun, so here we go.......

Our guest of honor this week is Giggles & Grins Bowtique! I chose this particular shop because I have made several purchases here and have always been 110% happy! Dawn Wilcox is the talented and wonderful seller behind Giggles & Grins Bowtique, she makes beautiful and unique necklaces from recycled dominoes and scrabble tiles, as well as, cute little hair bows for girls. My twelve-year-old daughter has become addicted to Dawns Twilight inspired bottle cap and scrabble tile necklaces; I have purchased several for her and one for my cousin, and they absolutely love them!! I love the price and quality of Dawn's work and I highly recommend Giggles & Grins Bowtique to anyone looking for a one of a kind, high quality necklace, or hair bow.

Here are some of our favorite items from Giggles & Grins Bowtique




Remember when we said that there would be a surprise? Well here it is!

Go to Giggles & Grins Bowtique and browse through Dawns awesome handmade products

Come back to our blog, and tell us which wonderful item you dig the most (you can only choose one).

Your comment will enter you into a drawing to receive the item you have chosen! Be sure to leave your email address in the comments, entries without email address will not be considered.

If you are already a follower of our blog, your comment will grant you two entries into the drawing, if you choose to follow our blog, let us know, and you will also be granted two entries, and if you choose not to follow then your comment will grant you one entry:)

Dawn has graciously agreed to give away one item of the winner’s choice from her shop! (She is so cool)

We are going to put everyone’s name in a hat and draw a winner next Sunday February 22, 2009! (This drawing is open to US residents only)

We will contact you via email next Sunday if you are the lucky winner! We will also be posting the winner here on the blog!

Thanks so much for participating:) Be sure to drop us a line if you would like to be featured on our blog, or would like to nominate someone else to be featured.

Good luck, and have fun!

Amy

Hi everyone!
Thank you all so much for entering the drawing, we are so excited we can hardly wait until next Sunday, lol. Angie had some problems becoming a follower. So I wanted to let you all know that if you want to follow and for some reason the "follow this blog" link on the side of the page doesn’t work when you click it, then you can go to your dashboard, and scroll down to your reading list. There you should see a button at the bottom that says "add" click it and type in the address www.ozarkscents.blogspot.com. Then click next, and that should do the trick!

Thanks again everyone, and good luck:)
