not a diva shirts for girls.

I’m not a big fan of “diva” or “princess” shirts for my daughter. It’s a personal preference really, but I’m kind of feminist that way. I don’t want my daughter to think her only value as a girl is in the role of a princess or diva or whateverelsedemeaningsomeonecanmarket. So as you can imagine, I’m more than a little thrilled that I found Ava’s Closet, creator of such shirts as: “Doctor Not Diva” and “President Not Princess”. These fantastic shirts or onesies range in size from a size 0 to a girl’s size 6. Now, if only they made them in my size. Two of you will win a shirt/onesie of your choice: Doctor Not Diva or President Not Princess, each valued at $20. Giveaway details below.

Giveaway Guidelines:
  1. To enter leave a comment telling me which empowering shirt from Ava’s Closet is your favorite.
  2. Leave only one comment please.
  3. Anonymous comments will be deleted.
  4. Two winners will be chosen and announced Monday September 15th on Petit Elefant.
  5. If I don’t hear from you within 7 days to claim your giveaway another winner will be chosen.
  6. Good luck!

back-to-school giveaway #6!


Lark and Loon is an amazingly cool children’s clothing company full of one-of-a-kind, artist commissioned pieces for kids age 2-12. I love the age span because it’s so hard to find something age appropriate for P, as most kid lines don’t go up to her size, and the designs are so great for any age. Not only that, Lark and Loon donates a portion of their profits to Americans For The Arts, which we love, of course. Lark and Loon is the sponsor of our next fantastic giveaway of a matching set Treehouse Drop {$38} and Treehouse Pants {$20}. Giveaway details below.


.

Giveaway Guidelines:
  1. To enter, pick your favorite artist on Lark and Loon’s commissioned artists page and tell me who you’ve chosen between now and Wednesday September 10th {Midnight MDT}.
  2. Leave only one comment please.
  3. Anonymous comments will be deleted.
  4. One winner will be chosen and announced Thursday September 11th on Petit Elefant.
  5. If I don’t hear from you within 7 days to claim your giveaway another winner will be chosen.
  6. Good luck!
