College Prepster GIVEAWAY!!!

I am SO excited to host my first GIVEAWAY!  I've been blogging for almost six months now and never could have guessed how much I would grow to love it.  My blog has opened many doors for me and I have you, my readers, to thank.  

This GIVEAWAY is also the kick off for my Etsy shop!  I'm going to open the shop once the winner has been announced!

The goodies!!!
Hand-painted wooden frame
Original preppy desktop calendar
Lilly Pulitzer fabric cards

The winner will be given her choice of this frame: 
Or this:

The academic calendar includes months-at-a-glance for August 2009- July 2010.
All designs were drawn by me and are, of course, very preppy!
The months can be displayed in an acrylic photo frame (as shown) which will be included.

I made these cards with Lilly fabrics.  The set you'll receive will include 8 cards (not necessarily shown, but don't worry: They're all ├╝ber cute!!!)

1 Entry for commenting on this post
1 Entry for mentioning that you're a follower
1 Entry for blogging about my giveaway (mention this in your comment please!)

That's a total of four possible entries!

    Rule: When someone asks you how you are doing, take the time to both respond and reciprocate. It's just nice to be nice!

  7. Hii!! Thanks for hosting your first giveaway! I always love reading your blog :)
    I've been a follower for some time now
    I would blog about your giveaway but I really don't have the time to start a quality blog, so just reading and lurking for me...
    And my rule was going to be to always present yourself in the best way possible, take pride in your appearance, but now I'm adding to be kind and gracious to everyone you come across. A beautiful heart is more important than a beautiful outfit.

  8. Enter me please! I am a follower of course!

  9. Rule- Always think class and not trashy when getting dressed. Tis better to be an audrey hepburn than a pamela anderson

  11. These are adorable... I am a follower and will write about your giveaway...
    Prep Rule: Best College prep rule I know: One has to be done either your hair and makeup or dressing nicely...

  20. Ooh, I can't wati for the Etsy shop! I'm a follower adn I love your super preppy style. :)

    im a follower!

    i put this in my blog sidebar!

  24. Oh, how darling they all are!

    I especially adore the anchor one.

  25. Here's a comment, and I follow. One rule: True style comes from being true to who you are.

  26. How exciting! I'm a follower, and I linked to this great giveaway on my blog. My preppy rule: There's no outfit that can't be improved with a little navy blue and some pearls!

    I just love the anchor frame, and I can't wait for your etsy store!

  27. Oh, what a lovely giveaway! I, of course follow your blog and am blogging about this.

    My rule, passed down from my mother, is that you wait until DERBY weekend to wear white. Not Easter!!

  28. Oh la la! How fabulous!!!! Count me in. I am follower and my rule: life a colorful life and wear it well!!!! Cheers! Xoxo-BLC

  29. Congratulations on your Etsy shop! I am a new follower, but not yet blogging myself.

    My #1 rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated. You only want to spread good energy around!

  30. Yay Carlie!
    Count me in! I'm a follower

    Rule: Pearls. Pearls.Pearls.

  31. I am a follower! And, never wear white until after Derby, not Easter (that's the Ky coming out in me!) Love the blog!

  32. Love it- I am so happy to find these preppy blogs and reconnect with my south georgia prepster self!

  33. I love the nautical frame!

    I am about to be a follower in 2.2 seconds.

    I'll add this to my sidebar.

    And a rule I like to live by is to shop for classy, well-made items that will serve as staples for years to come. It's always better to spend a little more on an item that will last a lifetime than an item that is "in". If Paris Hilton would wear it, you might want to put it down.

  34. ooohhh I hope i will one of these!!!

  35. True preppsters don't blog.

  36. I'm a follower and I'm posting about it!
