My First Giveaway




This is my first give away and I'm so excited! I'm giving away this sweet little pink mermaid. She is approximately seven inches long and is made from hand-dyed, cotton fabric. She has a beaded and sequined tail and beads adorn her head. Her face is a mirror, so when you look into her face...you are the mermaid!
Just leave a comment on any of my posts this week before midnight (CST) on May 31 and you will be eligible to win. The winner will be chosen randomly and notified on June 1. Because this is my first time doing a giveaway, I'm keeping it simple and will be mailing only to the U.S. or Canada. Please be sure to include contact information in your comment. Good Luck!!!

I love how in the close-up, the beady skirt look

Is a little like wispy seaweed. Is the true color more the pink of the first shot or the purple shading of the second?

Congrats on your bloggular makeover! Everything looks great.

Hey,
Your pink deep diver doll is way cool.

I forgot to tell you, the next time you visit my blog (if ever) check out the art doll section. You inspired me to do a sun face all in french knots. The post is called Cierra's Sun.
