A Giveaway for Maya's Birthday!

Today was Maya's birthday party!  On Wednesday she'll be 4 years old.  She had a great time at the party and was totally exhausted by the time everyone left.  More party pictures will come some other day, but check out this cute one (she's got an animal cracker in her mouth):


She's just so adorable, I can't stand it.

Check out her birthday shirt!  It's a little blurry in that picture, but it says her name, has a big 4, and (of course) an alligator.  She loves it.

I found the shirt on Etsy, and once I received it (and thought the quality was great) I emailed the shop owner, Jill,  to see if she was interested in giving away a discount to one lucky blog reader.  She happily agreed to give away 50% off any one personalized shirt in her store, lil sha-bebe. 

Fine print: I paid full price for Maya's shirt.  I am not getting anything in return for this giveaway.  I just liked her shirt and thought it was worth a shot to ask about getting a discount to give away to one of you folks.

I took 2 closer-up pictures, but I took them after the party, so ignore the spots:




Jill's store has over 200 shirts listed---I can basically guarantee that if you spend some time browsing over there you'll see something adorable, either for your child or to give as a gift to some other lucky little one.

Here are the details:

Prize: 50% off any one personalized shirt from this Etsy store

All her shirts are adorable. The "big bro" one caught me eye, since my little man will be a big brother in October. =)

There are so many I like, so cute! But I think one of my faves is the pink long sleeved Curious George one with the number in a polka dot pattern.

It's hard to pick just one shirt, but I think my fav is the pink Octopus shirt. Harmony is into ocean life, and that will likely be the theme of her cake next month when she turns 3!

All of the farm shirts are so cute!! I wouldn't know how to decide if I had my own kid! My niece is turning 1 in July and the Girls Personalized Appliqued Lollipop Age Tee would fit her party theme!!
