Charlotte's Dress-Up Area and Giveaway

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*

For years before I was pregnant, I dreamed of having a little girl.  I imagined shopping for little smocked dresses, and painting her nails, and clipping pretty bows in her hair.  Be careful what you wish for.

Charlotte is the girliest girl I could ever imagine.  She refuses to wear anything but princess dresses.  She gets frustrated if her hair isn't styled correctly.  She spends hours talking on her "cell phone" and stuffing important items (dolls, granola bars) into her tiny handbag.  I love it, but having that kind of girlie-girl also comes with a lot of stuff.  She has so many barrettes, dresses, jewelry, and shoes that I wasn't sure at first how to keep it all organized.

I recently began creating an area in her room where she can keep all of her girlie things organized.  It isn't complete yet, but here's where we are so far.


She has a few hooks for her dresses and tutus, a mirror to admire herself, and -- my favorite feature -- a Tuck-It Board made for Charlotte by my friend Tracey.


Isn't it cute?  Tracey has an Etsy shop where she sells Tuck-It Boards and other creations.  I use mine to hold Charlotte's barrettes, and sometimes I slip a little note or photo in there too.


Tracey makes Tuck-It Boards for lots of uses.  They can hold photos in a boy's or girl's room, barrettes or jewelry in a girl's room, sweet notes and cards in a nursery, memos in an office, or bills or paperwork in the kitchen.  They would also make a terrific shower or birthday gift!  Here are some of my favorites:










And here's the best news....Tracey has offered to give a Tuck-It Board to one lucky Tulip and Turnip reader!  Here's the one-of-a-kind creation:


And here's Tracey's description:

It's an 11X14 inch Tuck-it board called "Red Blossoms". The width ribbon is brown with green dots.

Keep all of your memorabilia safe by tucking it under the ribbon. Great for organizing or displaying all of your favorite photographs, movie/concert/sporting tickets, cards, notes etc. All boards are one-of-a-kind and hand made by Tracey J Dean.

Tuck-it boards are created on stretched canvas with high quality scrapbooking paper, ribbon and decorative brads. Width of canvas board is covered with ribbon to compliment the composition.

The Tuck-it board easily hangs on a wall; it's perfect for any room in the house.


You have five chances to enter.  Here's how:

1.  Leave a comment on this post.  Tell me how YOU would use the Tuck-It Board if you won.  Don't forget to leave an email so I can contact you!

2.  Become a follower of this blog.  Make sure you leave another comment telling me you did so (or telling me you are already a follower).

5.  Post this giveaway on your blog, Twitter, or Facebook status with a link.  Leave me a comment telling me you did so.

Giveaway open to US Residents only.  Winner will be chosen randomly on Monday, January 31 at 8:00 pm (EST).  Good luck!

    I finally figured out how to "follow" your blog Amy. I love reading your posts. And the tuck board is adorable. I could think of a million things to use it for, but most likely right now I'd put it in my baby girl's room to hold all of her baby mementos and pictures.

  37. I LOVE the tuck it board. If I was lucky enough to have such a work of heart in my home I'd place it in my kitchen- the heart of my home, to help me keep my two kids and our busy life organized. It would be the perfect addition and an honor.

  38. Awesome boards! My little one walks around the house finding pictures and things that she wants or likes in magazines and we set goals for her to earn them. S o I would make this her reward board.
