Bebe and Alice Review and Giveaway! (CLOSED)

This giveaway is part of the Bloggy Carnival ! Be sure to check out other great giveaways there!





I am so excited about the Bebe and Alice giveaway. I first want to share with you what a wonderful person Heather, the Bebe and Alice owner, is. She has been great to work with and I am sure she gives all of her customers the same care.
Bebe and Alice has a wonderful selection. Heather sent me a Lavender Bird. The Lavender Birds are stuffed with Lavender and polyfill. They smell wonderful! I attached a ribbon to mine and hung it in my Laundry room. It is so cute. These birds can also be used to help your wardrobe or car smelling wonderful! Right now Bebe and Alice's Etsy Store has Lavender Lovebird's for Valentines Day. These are a must see.
I don't want to forget to mention how the package arrived. When I opened the box I found a smaller box with a cute tag attached to it. I had to take a picture of her wonderful packaging. I feel comforted to know that Bebe and Alice mail their items ready to be presented. You don't have to worry how it will arrive when sending an order as a gift.



Heather first began to teach herself how to sew when her husband presented her with a sewing machine for Christmas several years ago. Her sister then asked her if she could sew a slipcover for a vintage ottoman. Heather agreed and it turned out beautifully.

Heather's first stock of aprons were sold at a private school fundraise where she doated 25% of total sales to the school. She sold almost all of them. This is where her journey began and developed into her own bussiness selling not only aprons but bags, shopping and shoulder bags, children’s clothing, hats, plush toys, and more! One of Heathers favorite creations are her custom orders using sentimental fabrics. Some examples are when a mom may want to use some saved fabric from her bridesmaid dresses from her wedding to create something for her daughter. Or a grandmother may have some vintage fabric from her mother's stash that she wants me to make aprons for all her grown daughters. Heather can also make girls halter dresses from men's dress shirts. These are called "The Shirt Off Dad's Back" . These seem to be some of her most loved creations.
Heather also like to include little “flower” pins (brooches) with each purchase or whatever she has on hand…no requests.

Discount: Bebe and Alice is giving all Catch the Drift readers FREE SHIPPING on any order with the code “snow” added to the message line of the purchase. She will refund the shipping cost after purchase via Paypal.

Giveaway: One winner will recieve this Bebe and Alice's children aprons. The measurements are: 10" across, 20" apron strings, and 15" long. Size 3/4.
(I must also mention that there is a matching adult apron to go with this smaller version. This makes the perfect Mommy and Me apron set! You can find this item as her store.)



To Enter: You must visit Bebe and Alice then come back here to tell me your favorite item!
