Off Topic Thursday - Baby Legs good karma giveaway!


I have always been a big fan of Babylegs. I wish I would have known about them when my son was crawling, but I discovered them when my son was 20 months or so and potty training. He wanted to use the potty, but was frustrated because he didn't have the coordination to get his pants down in time. It was winter, and I couldn't leave his legs bare, so Babylegs were the perfect solution! Above is a typical morning outfit at that time (we didn't leave the house like that, lol!)... beanie hat (he refused to take them off & even slept in them!), pj top, underwear, babylegs, and socks. On cold winter days the babylegs served as an extra layer, and protected his little legs when his pants hiked up. I even wore his black & yellow striped ones as arm warmers one year when I was a bee for Halloween. The possibilities are endless!




Now I just stock up on them when they are a good price & give them as baby gifts to friends & family. They had a fantastic sale for Earth Day on 2 different styles, Tulip & Vine, so I bought a bunch. They sent me 5 extra pairs by accident! I emailed them right away to let them know, and to ask them what they wanted me to do with them, and they said to keep them! If you know me, then you know I love good karma, so this calls for a giveaway! I will be giving away 2 pairs of the Babylegs, one pair to 2 different people, and you can choose from the 2 designs (Tulip & Vine)! Since I have to pay shipping out of my pocket on all these giveaways, I am limiting this giveaway to US & Canada only.

Ready for the details?

Mandatory Entry:
* Go to my shop and let me know which sweater is your favorite.

Want extra entries?
* Follow my blog, and if you already do just say that.
* Do something kind... Slip a sweet note in your husband's lunchbox, play that game you've played a hundred times with your kid that you hate to play (but your kid loves), a random act of kindness to a stranger, bring some baked goods to a neighbor (that's what got someone the winning entry in one of my past good karma giveaways!) , and let us know what you did! It will make you feel good about yourself, make the recipient of the good fortune happy, and it will get you another entry! No fair posting something you already did, or were planning to do anyway!... it's makes it more fun this way!
* Blog about this giveaway & link to it.


Make sure to leave a separate comment for the entries you complete!

Deadline: Tuesday, May 4th at midnight, Central time zone. I will use random.org to pick the winners and post it the following morning (May 5th). **please leave an email if your blogger profile does not include it. I need a way to contact you.** Once a winner is drawn I will contact them and the winner will have 48 hours to reply back before I draw a new winner.

Aiee, there are so many sweaters it's hard to choose. The soft raspberry lambswool with argyle jumped out at me. I sure love argyle.

And I love babylegs! :)

I love the soft copper one! And I love baby legs... great for so many reasons! I used them as a cast cover for my daughter when she broke her leg when she was a year old... she kept pinching her toes in it! I am a blog follower, too!

I am in the process of making a friend's wedding invitations and helping her plan a summer wedding.

It's going to be gorgeous, shades of mossy green and a soft, deep, violet with pink peonies!

I would love some baby legs--what a great idea! We are expecting our first grandchild, so I'd love to introduce him or her to baby legs--love the patterned ones!

Oh my good deed--I responded to a freecycle request for a lady who needs yarn, just to keep busy as she is disabled. She is going to crochet some things, and as it turns out,join me in supporting the same local charity, Solomon's Porch, a local outreach for homeless teens. I've been knitting for them for 2 and a half years, and she is going to help me in making things for the teens! A big win-win!

Oh ,& Love the dear "deer" zip front sweater! You are the queen of finds that's for sure! Also love the grey w/beaded front-#667 I'm new, but I'll be back!

I really like the pink cashmere sweater. I would immediately make some longies wit these!! They would be too cute.

I would love to try Baby Legs. I have never heard of them before, but now that I know, I must try them ;o) I have a potty training girl right now and they would be perfect!! Also, we are expecting baby #6 in August, so they would be put to use for some time. Plus we live in Colorado where it is still snowing!!

Anyway, I love your site.

Diane said...

I love the Super soft purple wool sweater for upcycling! I love the lines in it!! now I need to go find $6. ;)

Christina AKA SuperMom said...

Loving the pink cashmere! I had one pink sweater and squeezed 3 soakers out of it, cause I loved it so much!

Christina AKA SuperMom said...

Christina AKA SuperMom said...

Good karma passing it on... sending a hubbys co-worker some diaper covers to get her started with her 3rd wee one whom she wants to try cding.

Eve said...

I like sweater 676 with the tan diamonds.

I also love babylegs. My baby is wearing a pair now, but we only have 2 pairs, so more would be helpful :)

Michelle said...

I like sweater 353--it is different and cute!

Michelle said...

I follow your blog as well. :)

Michelle said...

For the something kind, I let my kids help me make lunch, which they enjoy but it makes a huge mess as they are 4 and 2. It was worth it to see all the fun they were having.

BTW, I love the look of baby legs, but have yet to try them. Looking forward to doing so since I am finally expecting a girl!

Tricia said...

OK Cris, Went out tonight to the thrift store. I saw a Jack Lalane juicer ($150 new) for $8!!! There was a woman next to me who started to tell me about her sick husband and how she would love to own a juicer because her husband was only fed through a feeding tube and if she could juice veggies and fruits she could get some nutrition into him. So, I put it into her cart and also taught her how to take it apart and helped her make sure that all the pieces were there. Thanks for reminding me to do something nice for someone else.
