one year and a giveaway!

happy st. paddy’s day, and guess what?  skirt as top is one year old today!  i can hardly believe it.  this year has been such a fun whirlwind for me, and i’m so glad i started a blog to share more about my projects and really get to know you all better.  i’m having a blast.


i thought it’d be fun, on my very first blogiversary, to give something back to you guys for being so awesome.  i decided that i want to make and give away a custom super hero cape to one lucky reader!  sound good?  it fits probably a 2T on up.

here’s how to win a cape for your little one, made by me:

  • leave a comment telling me your child’s name (or first initial) and their favorite color (or colors).
  • giveaway will close on tuesday evening (the 20th), and i’ll announce a winner on wednesday.  **GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**
  • if your email is not linked in your profile, please leave it with your comment.  the format of skirtastop(at)gmail(dot)com works great if you’re not into spam.
  • open to US and international residents, because i get a kick out of international mail.  🙂
  • void where prohibited.

thanks so much for reading, and may the luck of the irish be with you!
