A Giveaway!

I am happy to say that I am hosting a giveaway for Bargain Headbands, a super great shop on etsy. Each headband is handmade and super cute!

This is what you will win:
It may not be the *exact* ones pictured but will be of the same fabric.

How you can win:
Go to her shop, find a headband that strikes you and then write a Haiku about it and link it. (must be in English) One entry please.

Who can win:
Anyone that can be mailed to.

When the giveaway ends:
Aug. 8th at noonish Eastern Time and announced Aug. 10th sometime. Winner will be decided by random number generator. Winner will be posted on this post (or emailed if they provide an email) and must comment with their email addy or address (I have my comments monitored so I will make sure it doesn't post). If the winner does not claim the prize in 3 days of being posted the second runner up will be posted and so on until the prize is claimed.

I am also part of the giveaway carnival! Check The Bloggy Giveaway out!

Oh, how fun! I love headbands and I love writing Haiku! I know I only get one entry, but I wrote three poems, so I'm just going to include them all in my single entry. :)

First: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13616585

Floral fireworks
melting into deep chocolate
dancing in my hair

Second: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13693426

Rockabilly punk
Lost wax and heated dye
As pink as my mood

Third: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13711931

Coffee and chocolate
spilled across a blue-plate cloth
Accidental art

Can you tell I love the turquoise and brown batiks? Soooo pretty! :)

Thanks for letting us enter!

Here's my attempt at a haiku about what this headband reminds me of: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13762003

Sunny summer day
A canoe on the river
Trees, water, and sky.
