DollybyDesign: November Giveaway {Owl Always Be Thankful For You}

Whew! It has almost been one month since I last posted for DollybyDesign (and I am incredibly sorry about that folks)! For those of you who know me, I travel for my job, so today is my SECOND to last day of travel season! I just pulled into my driveway about 20 minutes ago from a trip, and I flew out the door to take pictures of this months giveaway before this month gets away from us all! I didn’t realize the Holidays would come so quickly, but I feel like every year because they sneak up on me {I am really working on being organized and ready for this holiday season with DollybyDesign, with my photography, and with work as well}. Anyway, so excuses aside, I am officially posting November’s giveaway! Hooray! Finally!

I know that last month’s giveaway was featured for babies, so I’m going to keep the baby theme for this month as well {because I know many of my friends and family have newborns, or young ones, who are celebrating their FIRST Thanksgiving this year}!

So the November FREE giveaway is: “Owl Always Be Thankful For You” Baby Burp Cloth & Bib Set!

Normally I sell this item in my Etsy shop for $25 (for a set of burp cloths with matching bib), and you have the opportunity of checking out my shop to purchase one for your little loved one (just in case you are worried you won’t win this month)!

RULES

1) LIKE my Facebook Page “DollybyDesign” (if you have already LIKED my page, then you can skip this step)

                 2) SHARE a photo of the November Giveaway (it will show up that you have shared this from DollybyDesign, and the more you SHARE the photo…the more you have a chance to WIN)

                 3) HASHTAG: Use the Hashtag #DollybyDesign & #BabyLove with your Shared photo as well! 

This contest will run from 11/12/13 to 11/20/13 (so I have plenty of time to ship you your loved one’s baby burp cloth set just in time for Thanksgiving!)

Thank you again for all of your love & constant support friends/family/viewers! It’s the Holiday Season! GOD Bless, and go be a blessing to someone today! 🙂

Love, DollybyDesign 🙂

DollybyDesign Local Love Featuring: “A Matter Of Taste” Restaurant

Happy Wednesday everyone! I haven’t been able to post anything “local love” related due to my heavy travel season, but thankfully I planned ahead, visited this new local restaurant in Nashville a while back, and took some pictures (and saved them) for this feature! Many of you may already know this (because of my absolute transparency about my health on my Facebook posts) but I am gluten-intolerant so having a new diet has really restricted ALOT of my food options these past two months. When I was told that gluten was one of the causes of my migraines, I had to completely change everything about how I grocery shopped and where I went out to eat. I LOVE eating, and having someone tell me to cut back on gluten was like someone telling me I could never eat ANYTHING EVER AGAIN (yeah…I can be a bit dramatic) because for me all I eat are carbs on carbs on carbs (in bread form that is). And, might I add, one of my go-to meals has always been a bowl of soup and a HUGE sandwich. So when I was told about my new diet, I was extremely disappointed I wouldn’t be able to have a delicious sandwich again. Thankfully, after some research on some local Nashville gluten-free restaurants, I heard about this GLUTEN-FREE Sandwich/Soup place called “A Matter of Taste”.  I was a little skeptical because of the location of this business, but after actually getting seated, talking with the owner/hostess,  & seeing the atmosphere of the restaurant, all of my skepticism went out the window! I ordered an AMAZING sandwich and soup combo (both of which were gluten-free), so after eating I DIDN’T GET SICK!!!! {This was HUGE for me, because for over 1 year I had been getting sick at least once a day due to something I had eaten, and I was absolutely clueless about what was causing my health issues} So, every time I am actually in Nashville, and if I have a moment to eat out, I ALWAYS go to A Matter of Taste because that’s one restaurant where I DEF WON’T get sick, I love the management and atmosphere, AND there are so many delicious soup and sandwich combinations (WOO HOO!!!!) So, if you are ever in Nashville (or are a LOCAL of Nashville) please check out “A Matter of Taste” ESP if you are gluten-intolerant, or if you are on a specific diet! Did I mention that the bread literally melts in your mouth? Yeah, I love it!

So, if you are wanting to check out this delicious LOCAL restaurant, check out their Website: http://www.amatteroftastetakeout.com/index.html , don’t forget to “like” them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Matter-Of-Taste/111191802282843 , and give them a shout-out on Twitter: https://twitter.com/amottakeout

{Photos were taken on my iPhone 4s, so sorry about the bad image quality…but here are some images of this cute restaurant!}

Happy Eating Nashville! And go support your local shops in the city you live in!

GOD bless & Love, DollybyDesign 🙂

DollybyDesign October 2013 Giveaway: Halloween Themed Baby Leggings!

Just in time for Halloween and Fall 2013: BABY LEGGINGS! And not just any baby leggings, Halloween-themed leggings!  I promised something baby-related and Halloween-related in my last post {when I announced the September 2013 winner} so here we go…

I am super pumped about this month’s giveaway (I feel like I say that every month, but really I mean it each time!) For those of you who don’t personally know me, I am in LOVE with Fall {Like L-O-V-E head over heels for this season!} I think my passion for this time of year started when I was a young girl in Montana, and naturally Big Sky country helped grow that love, because as a state, Montana is a gorgeous and an incredibly nature-orientated place to live in! { My most favorite picture(s) of me as a child are in piles of colorful leaves for sure 🙂 }

To share my love for all things Fall & Halloween related, I thought it would be fun to make some baby leggings which will fit any newborn up to any 8 to 9 month old baby.

Regular Price for DollybyDesign Leggings are: $10.50-$13.80 {depending on how many materials are being used}

For Whom: Newborn Babies to 8 & 9 Month old baby’s

Length: 10.5 inches long

So as usual, the rules of this contest are:

1) LIKE: if you haven’t already done this go and “LIKE” my Facebook Page “Dolly byDesign”

2) SHARE: this post with your friends on your FB Wall (and yes, I do see if you have shared with your friends…you can’t skip this step) 🙂

3) POST: on “Dolly by Design’s” wall why you would want to win this FREE Pair of Halloween baby leggings, who would get them, etc. (pretty much I just want more fans to post on my wall to have more interaction with you all!)

I know many of you do 2 out of the 3 steps, or just 1 out of the 3 steps…but you have got to do ALL 3 STEPS in order to qualify for the drawing!

Most importantly: This contest will only last until October 17th (that is next Thursday!) because I want to be able to ship this off to the winner in time for the baby to show off their THUNDER THIGHS for Halloween! 🙂

Good Luck Everyone! But most importantly, GOD bless! I hope you are all having a Blessed Fall so far!

Love, DollybyDesign 🙂

DollybyDesign Weddings: Clutches for Heather

Happy Saturday (or should I appropriately say…Happy FALL Saturday) Everyone!!!!!!! I just finished a big project for a good friend of mine who is a Bride-to-Be and I wanted to post this so I can share my newest creation with all my fans/friends! Her wedding colors are Mustard Yellow, Gray, & White accented with Burlap, so I wanted to incorporate all these colors into a new shabby chic design of clutches for my shop. I loved how they all turned out, and I hope that sweet Heather enjoys these clutches!

{Measurements per clutch: 7″X10″}

DollybyDesign:”High Tea Floral Cluster Earrings” for Fall 2013

The newest addition to my Etsy shop “High Tea Floral Cluster Earrings” are going to be the perfect accessory for your Fall 2013 outfits! Inspired by the Anthropologie Design, I decided to make my own version and cut the price DRASTICALLY (b/c let’s face it…Anthro prices are incredibly unreasonable and too expensive and I really think that accessories should be affordable)!

So I hope you all enjoy these new earrings! A huge shout out to my beautiful roomie, Katie, for being a great model!

DollybyDesign: Double Chevron Necklaces in Gold

I recently designed some (more) double gold chevron necklaces for my Etsy Shop-since they were so popular this summer the one week I sold them (so technically these are back by popular demand!) I currently have two double gold chevron necklaces on sale in my shop: The 1st necklace falls 7 inches from the neck and the 2nd necklace is longer and falls 10 inches from the neck. I wanted to see what a longer gold chevron necklace would look like and I LOVE this design ALOT!!!

So here are some images of the longer double chevron gold necklace:

DSC_7302 DSC_7303 DSC_7304 DSC_7305

And here are some images of the shorter double chevron gold necklace:

DSC_7306 DSC_7308

 

These necklaces are by far my favorite necklaces in my shop right now! I hope to get more feedback from all my Etsy Shop Fans and Friends!

Thank you again for your continual support! Message me on Facebook, Email (dolly.stang@lipscomb.edu), or call me if you have any questions about this listing!

Love, DollybyDesign 🙂
