Carter's Giveaway Day | *golden*

You guys have NO IDEA how freaking excited I am to do this giveaway. No idea.

I first met Rachel, the wonderfully sweet owner of the shoppe *golden*, through my friend Erynn. I was looking for a 1st birthday shirt to match Carter's baseball birthday theme and as soon as I saw her amazing work, I was sold.

Rachel is the kind of person that, as soon as you talk to her, it's like you've known her forever. She is one of the nicest people in the world and she has a talent like no other. I could show you all of the amazing banners she makes, or the custom bibs and hats that have been featured in magazines and celebrity parties. I could show you the custom shirts she has made for other people, or even for my own family members.

But? I'd rather show you all of the fabulous custom work she's done for me... =)

Carter's Phillies baseball shirt...
Matching Big Bro, Lil Sis shirts... {that were used to announce to our families that we were pregnant with #2! I told Rach I was pregnant about an hour after I found out and she made that shirt and shipped it to me in 2 days. LOVE her.}Carter's 2nd birthday shirt... UP! {And OMG he looks sooooo little!}And, of course, Carter's pirate birthday shirt =)Um, how amazing is she!?! AMAZING.

ETA: Um, how the heck could I ever forget Brynn's gorgeous 1st birthday shirt to match her ONEderland theme!?!{Duh, Jenn!}

Rachel is giving away 1 custom made tee valued at up to $48!!! All you have to do is like *golden* on Facebook {she closed her Etsy shop and is creating her own website} and then come back and tell me what you would use your custom tee for! Don't forget to leave your email address!
This giveaway will end on July 19th at 11pm EST.

Vote if you think these tee's are *sew cute*!

Jenni,I have adored here work since I saw all she's done for you and the stuff she's done for Erynn, which I saw on her blog.

I too loved the shirt for Brynn's birthday!

I have always wanted to order one, probably just an initial with a fun pattern for Olivia, although I am a sucker for the holiday shirts, etc, so that might be cute!
