My FIRST GIVEAWAy!!!

Alright ladies (and gentlemen if you are out there), my birthday was yesterday and I spent the morning putting together these clips for my first ever giveaway. I would have started this whole thing yesterda,y but my sweet uhbby took the camera to work. But, better late than never, right! First of all...please bear with me. My sweet little Alli bug spilled rootbeer on my laptop, so I have to go through and add all the "ys," "hs," and "ns." So, give me a break if I miss one here or there. Also, if you have any ideas how to get those keys working again, I'd LOVE you for it! Anywa,y here it is! My very first giveaway! All you have to do is enter. Nothing fancy. But, if you want extra entries here's how you can do it!

1 entry for leaving a comment.
1 entry for following me (if you are already a follower, just say so!)
1 entry for telling me how much you would pay for a set of these clips:

Group #1


Group #2







I am in the process of starting up an etsy shop and I don't know what to charge for these cute little clips. So, any suggestions would be appreciated! These are four different sets of crocheted flower clips. Large off-white, small light pink, Large raspberry, and small purple. The first winner gets to choose either the sets in the first photo or the second photo and the second winner gets the other ones. So, not only do you get three entries, you get two chances to win, too!

Don't forget to leave me some contact information, too. I would hate to have someone win and not be able to reach them!

The winner will be announced next Tuesday, so you have through Memorial Day to enter up to three times! So, thanks for all the love and GOOD LUCK!

Happy Birthday!

Those are so cute.

About the keys.... my little guy got cracker crumbs in my keyboard and I very carefully pried the keys off (one at a time) and cleaned under it, the keys will snap back in place. But rootbeer might be a little trickier. Good luck with that. :)

I would probably pay $3-$4 per set. You could charge a little more for the bigger ones.

I would pay $3 a set

soo cute! Good luck selling them. Don't feel to frustrated if they dont sell right away. Its hard to sell hairclips online. So many people do it. I say this because I have my own store. You have to find unique things for them to sell real well.

I love these clips! They really are cute:) I would sell them at $3/pr or $5/2pr, something like that:) I try to price my bows based on their size, cost of material, "creation time", and their intended purpose. Hope that helps!

So, this is my comment and I wanted to give a little advice on the sticky keys:) Most laptop keys are designed to be removed. I suggest gently pulling up from the bottom or side, you'll be able to feel whether it is pulling loose or not. There will be a little pop and there's the key:) You can wash the loose keys with dishsoap and water. Under the keys you want to use alcohol. Make sure the computer is completely off before starting this whole thing. Use q-tips wetted with alcohol and gently wipe any sticky areas. Let it dry... I always wait 24 hours after washing any electronics. Pop those keys back on and try it out! Okay, long comment:), but I hope it helps.

I'm broke, so I'd pay $3 or 4 for them. I guess you want to factor in though cost of supplies + time. Good luck to you!
