Winners and another Great Giveaway!!

(For information about our current FREE Gifts with Purchase offer ending Monday March 28, please click here!)
(photography courtesy of Sierra Studios Photography)
Good Morning (afternoon almost) everyone!! I have to say, this week has been so fun for me! Although I have never been able to keep up this blog other than for communication reasons in regards to sales etc., I have really had fun being committed to posting every day for this giveaway week! It's fun to read your comments and know that what I am posting is of interest...even if it's only becasue you want free stuff...I really am ok with that! It's just fun to have a place where I know our fans/customers can come and hear what's new with the shop! It makes me want to keep on posting more regularly and not only keep you more involved with the happenings of Banner Boutique, but use this blog for good.
On a side note, before we get to the giveaways... as a business owner, I have many opportunities to get involved with a variety of good causes. Although I only have so many hours in a day just like the rest of you, and I can't always do ALL that I want to do in regards to helping out, I do feel a strong desire to help as much as I possibly can as a way of thanking my Heavenly Father for the blessings that he has provided me. I am so grateful for healthy, happy children and a loyal, kind and dedicated husband. I am very aware that this is a luxury and not always the norm so I want to give back in every way I can.

I was just made aware of a new little boy we will be able to help by donating to a silent auction. This is one of the most common ways we get to help in raising money and support for these families facing incredible trials. Banner Boutique will be making a headband to sell in an effort to raise money for this family. All proceeds from that particular headband will go towards helping this family pay medical bills...I will also be sure to make it a FABULOUS headband that you won't be able to live without! You will be able to give to this family while also getting something great from us as a token of thanks for your donation. If you would like to learn more about this sweet boy please click on the link at the end of this post. I hope to have the new headband ready to sell by next week.

So, now on to our winners from yesterdays giveaway!! (did I mention how much I love giving out FREE stuff!!??)

Winner #1: Mabel Beltran!!! Who also suggested we name the Bright Pink New headband soon to be listed in the shop, *The Scarlet*!! LOVE the name Mabel, Scarlet it is!! I will try to get that headband listed asap!!



Winner #2: Melanie, who suggested we name the headband *Elizabeth Taylor* in honor of her passing. Another wonderful name Melanie!! We will be naming the new raw silk collection piece pictured in yesterday's post *The Taylor*!! Thanks Melanie!!



Ladies, please be sure to send you info and headband selection to Wendy at our Banner Boutique email address: BannerBoutique AT hotmail.com

Also, I would guess that Wendy is having a boy. Everyone in my church Bible study group is having boys right now. Last year we went through a spell of nothing but girls (including my own little headband-wearing princess) but now it's boys, boys, and more boys. So bring on the blue, Wendy!
