Monday Giveaways are Back!

I definitely needed a week off giveaways last week with all the catching up from the Anniversary Celebration (my family knows my tendency to bite off more than I can chew!)- but I'm excited to return to the weekly giveaways I enjoy doing. :) For those of you who are new to My Little Pixies, I run a giveaway every week on Mondays- usually not anything as massive as what I did a couple weeks ago- but I love doing them as a way of connecting with clients and being able to offer something for free gives me the chance to connect with people who'd love my products but might never take the jump to actually buying them.

I'm considering re-working how I manage the entries after the hours I spent trying to tabulate everything the week of my anniversary celebration, and I had thought of trying a new way of entering this week, but now that I'm trying to figure out how to explain what I was thinking... I've decided it's too complicated, and I'll just stick with the "old way" for now. Instructions for entering will be at the bottom of this post, and I will also explain how the winner is selected at the bottom of this post for those who want to know the procedure for how I tabulate the entries.

But without further ado... here is the item that I will be giving away this week (selected by popular vote on my Facebook site last night :)) I'm happy that this one was selected, because it is my favorite of the three I posted as well. :)
 This is the triple felt rosette headband in "Caribbean Sunset" that I created when I fell in love with babyGap's "Coral" line. It consists of three handmade rosettes in turquoise and coral, all nestled together and attached to a skinny elastic headband. I can make this to fit anyone from babies to adults, and I think it's a great look for any age! :)
Above are examples of this style of headband on a newborn, courtesy of http://andreamackeyphotgraphy.blogspot.com. The pink and purple headband is available here or here.

Okay, so here is how you enter:
1. COMMENT- either here or on my Facebook page  so I know you want to enter.
2. SHARE with friends via text, email, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, whatever, and tell me you did for an extra entry.
3. (NEW): if you're on my list of people who've made a purchase from my shop in the week surrounding the giveaway (in this case, it would be anyone who has made a purchase from Wednesday, June 8 through Wednesday, June 15), you get 2 extra entries as a special bonus- plus, if your order hasn't shipped when the giveaway posts, I will refund your shipping charges if you win!
4. CHECK BACK Wednesday morning, when I will post the results of the giveaway!

For those of you who are curious about how I calculate the winner each week, here is how I do it. I assign each entrant a number- I begin with the entries that come from the blog, and number starting with number 1. I assign additional consecutive numbers for people who have qualified for multiple entries. Then I move to Facebook and number those entries and extras. Then I go through and double check to be sure I haven't missed anyone. Finally, I go to random.org and have it select a random number.

If anyone can think of a better way to do this, I'm all ears!! :) For this week anyway, I think this is the simplest way of handling it. So thanks for playing along! And good luck!
