Major Birthday Competition

No comments:
Over the month of July I hope to have lots of giveaway's and fun things happening to celebrate the successful two years of Flirty bird and the fun times I have had! 

Scarlett, her first modelling job for Flirty Bird.

I thought I would start this one a little earlier because I am so excited about it.

It is our biggest giveaway yet and not to be repeated very often. 

It is so simple to enter and the prize is HUGE!

When we hit 2000 facebook 'likers' we will be giving one very lucky Flirty Bird Supporter $30.00 per calender month* to spend @ the shop for 6 months. That is a total of $180.00 worth of hair accessories.

All you need to do is keep an eye on the facebook page, once it hits 2000 likers, the first person to tell me via email ( will win.... too easy. 

Scarlett, 2 years on, beautiful as ever - many, many photo session's later!

* Each $30.00 has to be spent within the calender month, you cannot accrue coupons and spend them altogether. If you do not spend the money between the first and last day of that month it will be forfeited. Excludes Gift and Accessory cases.Competition will expire on the 30th July 2010 if we do not have 2000 likers (not friends - likers alone) the prize will be forfeited.

We are having a birthday next month.......

Even though we started back in Feb of 2008 the official launch as a business happened in July so we will celebrate each year at this time.

I was too busy last year to celebrate and it slipped on by and even though things haven't changed and I am still busy as ever I am not letting this one get away!!

Who is ready for a partee??

Loving This Too!

Some of you may have seen Pretty Penny a while back when she was a little bubba right here on this blog. Well Pretty Little Penny has been wearing Flirty Bird since she was a little girl and it has been lovely to watch her grow and change with every photo. I love this so much that I wanted to share. Penny in my Alana Clip.

I have had the pleasure to get to know Veronica (Penny's mummy) via emails for a while now and have had the pleasure to hear about her creationof the The Paper Sweet (Grand Opening July 2010) Make sure that you swing by her blog ready for the opening because I have a feeling that this will be one of those blogs that will have you captivated with words and pictures for hours on end. I am very excited as I have seen Veronica's cards first hand and they are brilliant.

Thanks Veronica and Penny for sharing again!

New Shapes

No comments:

Very happy to announce that we have new shapes in the shop. We still have our rounds that we have been carrying for the last two years but have added stars, hearts, square and my favourite, bow shapes to the store. There will be a few more shapes to come but I will keep them up my sleeve for the moment!

The shop has had a complete overhaul with lots of new things coming in the next week or so....It is really worth stopping by to see all the new pretty accessories on offer!

Never Give Up

Well I don't normally post too much personal stuff on here anymore, I just don't get the time. I would love to post daily and have interesting things like recipes, cake decorating, kids stuff and much more but it is either create accessories or blog and getting the needle and thread out seems to always win.

 But I just had to take the time share this one because it really made my day.....

I had a really tough week last week. So much so that I was ready to walk away from it all. I started making hair accessories for fun and never thought of creating a business from it - it sort of picked me instead of the other way around. It has been a really great experience for me and I have learnt so much about photography, computers, importing, accounting etc etc (must say that I still don't get twitter though!) that I would never have learnt otherwise.

Anyway, with every good side there is always (well most of the time)a bad side and I really felt that bad side last week. While getting my son's brekkie for him I was pondering the thought of stepping away from Flirty Bird and from nowhere this little voice said "Mum, you never give up".

That was my son, who, of course, had no idea what I was thinking he simply was telling me what he learnt at Karate the day before and I simply said " No Matey, you never give up" and with that the decision made to keep going and Outwit, Outlast, Outplay.

A silly story really, but funny how as a parent you teach your children so many things and most the time we forget that they teach us some of the most important things in life along the way.

Giveaway Thursday Winner

No comments:
We have a winner for the one of a kind headband and extra goodies. We got our winner from because it is so much quicker than putting all the names in a hat and taking photos while the kids picked one out - they would have had a fight about who would have done it too so it was just too hard for a Tuesday night!

I simply added the numbers 1 to 18 (number of comments for the contest) and gave me a number.

So congratulations to comment number one :

Renee Potter!

Please email me your address.


Giveaway Thursday!

Giveaway Tuesday Thursday is here. I know I need to get my act together and I really want to promise that there will be another one on Tuesday but.... I won't promise however I will really really try to get it back to schedule. 

Here is a short comp in the meantime. 

Drawn Tuesday 8 June 2010. Entries close 8pm EST Monday night.

I have made a one of a kind felt headband for this little giveaway. The headband stretches up to adult size. (Scarlett at 2.5yrs can wear them and me at uh um years with a big head can wear them comfortably too). They are really soft.

Also added into this prize is a bunch of samples that I received from a great supply company that was lovely to send me some inspiration with my order. I have kept a few for Scarlett but think that I should share just as my mum always taught me. Although not Flirty Bird  - best hair accessories in the world ;) - I am sure that any little girl would have a great time picking out her favourites.

To enter you need to make sure that you are a fan on facebook and leave a comment below telling me who will be wearing the OOAK headband if they win.

I know that some people don't like commenting on blogs so I am happy to accept emails as well as long as you are a fan on facebook also.

Winner will be drawn randomly and contacted so make sure I have someway of reaching you or check back for the winner!

Don't forget to stop by here for another giveaway

Another new felt headband has been added to the site today, again in limited numbers. I have really been enjoying felt lately and it would have to be my favourite medium at the moment. I love the versatility and that the only thing that limits it is my own imagination. I have so many new ideas, I just need to find the time to put them all into practise!

There will also be three new fabric bows added sometime tonight. They are so great for thin hair as they are attached via a small french barrette. You will see from the photos that they held well even in Scarlett's thin hair!
