Black Cosmetic Bag Giveaway

Some of y'all remember a poll I took a little while back, asking about new cosmetic bag colors. The votes are in and BLACK was the winner!
Here's the deal. I need to add both the small and large black cosmetic bags to my site. I have a gazillion cosmetic bags for myself as do all of those near and dear to me. However, I need a preptastic sample for the Monogram Chick website.

This is where you come in: leave a comment with your favorite font {check out the font page here} and what color or color combo you'd put on the black cosmetic bag set and I'll choose a winner. The winner's bag will be featured on the site and then packaged (ever so cutely) and put in the mail for many years of travel enjoyment.

Don't need a cosmetic bag set for yourself? Easter, Graduation and Mother's Day are right around the corner and our cosmetic bags make fabulous gifts. If you don't enter for yourself, enter for a friend or family member.

The giveaway will be open through tomorrow (Friday, 3-27) night.

You have more than one chance at winning:
~Blog about this giveaway and earn an extra entry~
~Become a follower (or if you already are a follower) you'll earn extra entry~
That's up to 3 times your name will be in the hat {or cosmetic bag} for drawing.

BIG PRINT: Your comment must include your fave font, fave color or color combo, whether or not you're a follower and whether or not you blogged this giveaway (I'll double check your blogs--which gives me a great excuse to surf blog-land and see what y'all are up to :))
**bloggers, feel free to grab the photo above for your blogs!

Nina, Your Go-To Girl

Brooke and William are getting married and my sister is one of the {many} hostesses for a shower honoring one of her greatest friends. When it came to the couples shower the group wanted to do something fun that could incorporate the guys too. A "Cocktails and Cupcakes" shower was conceived. As Sister Chick and I were discussing the deets we knew Nina would be the perfect chick to design the perfect invite: something modern, girlie with a masculine twist, & of course cupcakes and cocktails had to be included. It took one try and Nina had it! I think these are so great and the price can't be beat. There was Nina's design fee {super reasonable} and the Vista Print printing. Nina hooked us (as well as all of those near and dear to her) up with a fab deal at Vista Print which included the envelopes. Take a look, aren't they adorable?

Objective met, thanks to Nina!

I Love Me Some SITS

Y'all have seen me talk about the fab girls over at SITS {The Secret is in the Sauce}. They do a great thing for us female bloggers; creating an incredible network of support. Well, they are doing it up right agian and Monogram Chick is involved in the fun. I won't give away their'll have to click over to check them out. The one hint I'll give is that there *may* be a special Monogram Chick {discount} code hiding out on their pages as well as an impending g*veaway.

An Admission

Y'all know that I love my chocolate waffle weave spa robe....however, I now want one of these.

The same exact thing in WHITE! I have this thing with white. More specifically, I have this thing with bleach. Dr. Chick makes fun of me. We only sleep on white sheets because I can bleach them. There is nothing better than snuggling down into bed with the smell of Gain and me it is heavenly. I'm weird, it's alright, I'm fine with it. So, when I stitched this white waffle weave robe for a client the other day I immediately thought of how wonderful it would be to wrap myself in this post-shower with the smells of Gain and bleach covering me as I dry my hair in the mornings.

That's right--All threads used here in the Monogram Chick studio are color fast. When you buy something white (like our fab waffle weave cosmetic bags) and it gets dingy throw a little bleach in the washer and BAM! you're like new again. You can indulge your silly idiosyncrasies (or at least, I can!) while still sporting fashionably, preppy monogrammed garb.

Anyone else buy Clorox in bulk?

Bailey: An Update

Thanks to everyone for your kind thoughts, well-wishes and prayers for our "baby", Bailey. It seems that he is feeling better. Little by little each day he seems to improve. He is back to barking at the friendly mail carrier, fedex and ups drivers, I think he's on the mend. We are not sure what was wrong with him and are hoping that it is not a chronic problem but rather just a bug or something his nosey little self got into. Thanks again, bloggy friends!

Poor Bailey.

My poor puppy is sick and we don't know what is wrong. He spent Saturday night at the doggie ICU with IV fluids and antibiotics and came home late last night. We thought he was on the mend. Sadly, he is not as well as we thought he was {vomiting on our bed at 2 am, helped us come to this conclusion--lovely, I know.} We are going back to the veterinarian today, I am praying for some answers and that we can get Bailey back in his usual, perky shape.

Happy Birthday Buddy!

Today is Dr. Chick's Birthday!

If it were not for the love and support of my wonderful husband, Monogram Chick would not be what it is today. He is ever patient and always willing to lend a helping hand when things get crazy. Most days, he will come home from working a full day and spend his evenings trimming stitches, packaging and helping in any way that he can.

Happy Birthday to my best friend, my 'Only One', the man who makes me want to be a better person--I love you!
