Give a Little Bit Giveaway!

so last year i got really into making hair pieces. i'll be the first to admit, i wasn't that good at it. i had fun learning something new and trying to be crafty. also it gave me something to do while i sat on the couch and watched TV. it was probably the most productive that i have ever been in my whole life. and it wasn't that productive.

i started my little ellaphantsy blog and even had a few sales on etsy. anyway, since i am not really doing it anymore, i have a lot of supplies left over and instead of  just throwing them away, i thought i would give some away.  seriously, did you hear about how H&M was throwing away unsold clothes, and slashing them, so that the homeless people couldn't get any use out of them? makes me so angry!

anyway, i have the materials for these headbands!

you have three chances to win!

1. leave a comment
2. tweet/or blog about it and you get a 2nd entry. (leave another comment!)
3. if you are a follower, leave a comment and tell me for a third entry :) (p.s. i am not doing this to gain followers! it's just an easy extra entry.. :)
4. i decided to add a fourth. because of the title of the post. "Give a little bit" if you do something selfless for someone this week and you tell me what you did. that will get you an extra entry :)

i plan to give two away! i will randomly select the winners through random.org.  the giveaway will end on Januray 18th {Monday morning! }

oh and anyone can enter! don't be shy! i love making new friends and will not think it is creepy at all!

the headband


the above picture was taken by lee


anyway, i just thought this was better to do than just throwing them away,
so no pressure if you don't like :)

good luck!

The Boob Nazi said...

Pick me! I'm a follower.
And I love you.
And selfless, hmmm, I made dinner for a friend on Sunday.

jordan said...

cuuuuute. :) good idea, too! i hate when things go to waste and when i read that about h&m.. that's just wrong and it makes me mad, too.

btw, i love your blog. you're absolutely hilarious. :D

oh, if i won.. i'd like the clip. headbands are great but i think i have a wonky shaped head because they never seem to sit right. maybe it's my ears? or both? i'm screwed. hahah.

The Boob Nazi said...

Oh i can't decide which I'd like!!!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEE Give me both, please. :)

jordan said...

i tweeted about the giveaway - my username is jordanabanana & i think i follow you on there. here's the link to my profile: http://twitter.com/jordanabanana

ALSO. i thought i already followed your blog but apparently not, so .. now i am. :)

Rachie said...

They're beautiful! I want!

Shannon Ashley said...

These are gorgeous!! I am having a hard time deciding because they are both so cute, but I think the clip :)

Shannon Ashley said...

Also I am a follower!

kayla & tyler said...

AHH, both are adorable! but I think I will go with the clip one.

Allison said...

These are wonderful! I LOVE headbands and clips! :D


I'd choose.... the clip.

Allison said...

And OF COURSE I follow!

Allison said...

And I tweeted it! :D

kayla & tyler said...

Follower :)

Michael & Mindy said...

#1-Love the first one. Want it. Can I pull it off? No. Will I try anyway? Yes. Me branching out should be its own entry!

Michael & Mindy said...

I'm a follower. Plus I text-monster you like every day. Was I supposed to say something else in this comment? Oh. Um..this is the first giveaway I've EVER entered. Definitely worth me winning..

Wait. I think this is supposed to be entry #3? I think I need to put it on my blog? yes, yes. I will do that.

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

Entry # 1. I love the one with the feathers, and I think you made them beautifully! Also, I can't believe that H&M would do that. I don't understand why it would hurt to give the clothes to people who could use them.

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

Entry #2. I'll blog about this and post a link tomorrow, right after I announce the winner on my giveaway!

Also, I haven't done something selfless for a human this week, but for a blue jay, so I know that doesn't count, but I did want to give you a link to this site. My husband had this idea and made a website about it. There hasn't been too much activity, but I thought you might be interested. http://www.altruismed.com

Michael & Mindy said...

Okay. Did you not publish my last comment? I think I know why. I better still get 3 entries! PS, I went to that blog and saw that that blogger did what I said he/she had been doing with the giveaway. I didn't even know they did a giveaway! I was guessing! Now I kinda feel like I was reading minds or something? Does that even make sense? Anyway, I wasn't really comparing you, I was just sayin'...

olivia rae said...

chloe they are so beautiful!! what's not to like? open up ellaphantsy again!!! xoxo

Caroline said...

Chloe... you are so talented!! I LOVE, LOVE THE Headband!!! On my Christmas post I am sporting a lovely little headband with a flower on top... and let me just say the one you have created is AMAZING!!! LOVE!! xo

Caroline said...

Second comment... I am a follower and so thankful that I am... your blog brightens my day, makes me laugh and inspires me daily... I always look forward to ending my day by reading your blog... laughing is amazing and you have the best sense of humor. Any who talented lady... have a lovely evening!! xo

Michael & Mindy said...

I think I deserve the 12 comments. ha. I love that you commented on another post to disguise the #. haha. I like this new blog look! Is it new? Why am I just noticing? I can't believe I'm commenting on your blog during last chance workout. You should feel so special. not. Remember when you would say "not" after everything? haha. I did it in middle school. I still do it sometimes. Not. haha. Not really. But sometimes.

Sometimes I think my blog doesn't update on feeds. I wonder why yours doesn't?

DiamondsandTulle said...

Such a lovely giveaway! I'd give it to one co-worker to make it into a headpiece, then give it to our other co-worker whose been looking for a beautiful wedding headband, on a low budget.

grant + brittany said...

i love #4. unfortunately i don't think i look good in headbands but i definitely think you should not be shy of these! you are so talented chloe! in a LOT of things, i stopped by "my name is lauren" and saw all of the recognition she was giving you for helping her out with her layout and i felt so bad that i hadn't given you more!! (how cute is she?) anywho i just want you to know that i think you are so adorable, what a lucky guy sean is. i love coming to your blog and always having something to read. especially something that is funny. thanks for your friendship, i feel lucky to be your friend. srsly.

entry #4:

i'm not really sure this will actually count as an entry for this part, and if it doesn't i guess i'll have to post another later, but i just felt that this girl definitely deserves some recognition for the blog she has going and all the work she is trying to do.
she is really special and is working to do some great things.
so i thought i'd share her blog with you!

tinytwig.typepad.com

check her out. :)

cait said...

samnhal said...

Those are beautiful, and I just thought of something clever...you will see in a a few comments. You're work is beautiful. Teach me.

samnhal said...

Entry #2 I am a follower!

samnhal said...

Entry #3 I did something selfless, I entered this giveaway so I could win the second hair clip so my sister could wear it to her wedding in July.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Awwww how talented are you?! Holy moly.

The headband is lovely, as are you!!

Elizabeth Marie said...

AND of course I follow!!!!! Selfless-today I listened to a friend cry and rant and rave about a boyfriend when I had millions of things to do. But I just listened, because I know I'm going to need someone to listen to soon, I'm sure.

McKenna said...

1:: love the feathered one.

Love that you do this! So my question is.. why are you not doing it anymore. "Weren't really good at it" -my eye.

McKenna said...

2:: I am an always will be a follower.

McKenna said...

3:: something selfless I am going to do today: I am taking a friend shopping to Primark {a place that sells really cheap & cute clothes} and while I am there I am going to pick out some earrings for a elderyly sister missionary in our ward, because on Sunday she was so nice to compliment mine. She told me that she didn't bring any on her mission and she bought some but that they were Christmas earrings and she can't wear them not that the season is over. I can't wait to suprise her with some cute pearls or something. What a great feeling it is to do something for someone else.

Micaela said...

aww i love the selfless act for an entry.

happy belated 10 months! :)

Kelly's Adventures said...

wow that has got me thinking about boycotting H&M, I didn't know!

I would like the clip if I win please

Kelly's Adventures said...

I tweeted

Kelly's Adventures said...

I now am a follower and am really excited about it.

Kelly's Adventures said...

I loaned someone a $100 dollars who really needed it more then me.

I leaned an ear to a lot of people who needed it (its been a rough week)

melanie.joy said...

I just found your blog through Lauren's blog (so her scout's honor is good!) and I love both of them - especially the clip.

I'm getting married in October (to one of Lauren and Craig's friends) and it would be perfect for it :)

melanie.joy said...

I just tweeted about it (so maybe you'll get a few more entries?) :)

melanie.joy said...

Third(ly), I just followed you :) - a very cute blog.

I'm an aspiring blogger, but not nearly as diligent as you!

(oh, and for the last one, in case you're curious my twitter is @eyeletsage ...so you can see I did it ;) )

SavingDiva said...

I love the flower clip! It's so pretty...I think it would look adorable with a white, billowy sundress.

savingforhome at gmail dot com

Juli said...

p.s. how the crap can you say you're not good at making them?? I was just looking at them on your elephantsy blog, and basically i am two things: 1- in love with all of them, and 2- jealous that you can make them and are so good at making them. feel free to give me all of the "ones that aren't very good" in your words. cuz in my words they're adorable and perfect.
that is all.
carry on.

Anna said...

I love the white one!! what a lovely giveaway!! : ) : )
xo-

Stephanie said...

i should tell you that if i win i will give it to my sister for her wedding.


but i wont. i will keep it. and wear it. probably to her wedding.

Julia said...

entry #1 i love the headband! even though it's a little bride-y :)

Julia said...

#2 of course i follow! how else would my google reader have told me about this awesome giveaway!

Julia said...

#3 im leaving my house in a few minutes to give blood for Haiti relief. does that count as something selfless?

Katie said...

Hi Chloe! I wasn't going to enter because I'm new to your blog but then you said you didn't think it was creepy--hooray! I love making new friends. :)

I'd love the headband, even though they are both delightful.

Katie said...

And one more entry for the headband because I'm a follower (and would you believe I really did start following before I saw this giveaway? Well, I did.)

Xo,
Katie
