Luck of the draw

I was going to start off by saying that I never win anything, but then I remembered the time I won tickets to see Stone Temple Pilots at the Santa Barbara Bowl. And the time I won free Subway sandwiches. And when I was in kindergarten and won a city-wide art contest because of a piece I made when our teacher had us drop marbles in paint and swirl them around a cardboard box to make "art." Oh, and that time I "won" a free week membership at the local gym, which turned out to be just a scam to get me to come here their little sales pitch.

So, occasionally I do win stuff, but I can't remember the last time I won something this awesome. I entered a drawing from one of my favorite sites, Project Nursery, to celebrate the launch of its new forum. The prize package is an awesome $1,000 worth of fun stuff for the nursery, baby and mom.

Imagine my surprise when I checked the site yesterday to see that I WON! Check out everything coming my way!

Shabby Chic’s Bohemian Pink crib bedding from Layla Grace ($470 value)


Sleepsack and Blanket by SoMi baby ($150 value)



Choice of one 8×8 or 8×10 ready-to-frame personalized wall print by Lillybean Designs ($15 value)


Bebe au Lait nursing covers in “Shrine Aqua” & “Pink Parfait,” (I almost bought a nursing cover the other day at Target! So glad I didn't! I get to use these awesome ones instead!), set of three Bebe au Lait burp cloths, SIMPLE organic nursing cover in “Willow” ($136 value)


Complimentary online room color consultation from Lesley David Design’s PaintYourSpace.com ($50 value)

Felt Flower Clip, Head Band & Large Flower by Sally’s Clippies, ($20 value)


Two Bibzees “Baby Ink” Bib Sets ($54 value)

Two Madison Paker Toddler Tees ($60 value)

Complimentary Custom Inspiration Board for Nursery, Child’s room or Playroom by Little Apple Design , ($50 value)

I know! I can hardly believe it myself! I was going to do a little post and photo of me enjoying all the prizes, but with Em Dash's arrival potentially so close, I didn't know when I'd get to it so I'm giving my shoutout to the prize sponsors now.

Wheeee!

Maybe my contest karma is coming back to me. Don't forget to submit your guesses!

  14. to answer la pixie's question, a blanket is a total pain in the ass. it slips and it's hot and it's awkward as all hell to keep it in place. the cover is INVALUABLE for nursing discreetly in public.

    nanners, trust me - out of everything you won (which is ALL fabulous, congrats!), you'll use that nursing cover the most. i sure have. worth every penny - and yours is free! whee!
