EDIT: Apparently blogging while half asleep leads to not including any pictures of the item you’re actually giving away! Sorry about that friends! The post has now been upated to include pictures!
Tomorrow is Foodie Penpals reveal day, but today I have a bit of a Foodie Penpals teaser complete with my very first giveaway!! This month I received a package from Krysty over at Little Runner Girl. In addition to the delicious food goodie, my box contained one of the headbands Krysty makes. Can I just tell you all, I am obsessed with this headband. I have an extremely round head, and usually cannot wear headbands because they slip and slide off my head or dig in behind my ears and cause headaches. Needless to say, the fact that Krysty’s ‘Trophy Band stays put all day is a huge win in my book!
Krysty has graciously offered to give away headbands to three lucky readers. But before we get to the giveaway, I wanted to give Krysty a chance to share a little about about the why and how of her headbands. Take it away Krysty…
My name is Krysty, and I started K@tastrophy Designs and ‘Trophy Bands last year as a way to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as a participant in Team in Training. I had been searching for years for a headband that would stay put all day, and especially during exercise. Every one I tried just slipped right off, and often times went flying across the room! But now, I don’t have to worry about that any more!
I will be honest, I purchased a rather expensive similar headband and it worked great. But it was really expensive and I wanted more! So I got crafty and and got to work at the sewing machine! It didn’t take long before my friends were snatching them up! And the bonus is that they are a bit more affordable than some of the other competitors.
Right now the K@tastrophy Designs site has tons of designs for headbands, and I am so amazed at how this has grown over the last year! There are new designs added every season, and I am busy designing new Special Occasion ‘Trophy Bands hopefully to be out by the Holiday Season this year. And I have started taking custom orders as well! Own your own business? These headbands are a great way to advertise your business and get your name out there! Or if you are looking for a specific color, or pattern I am more than happy to oblige.
I also added a fundraising option this spring because after all that is why I started this in the first place; and I love giving back to my community.
I think it is so cool that Krysty uses her awesome skills to help fundraise for a great organization! I definitely plan to buy a few more headbands from Krysty in the near future, but you have an opportunity to win one right here! I’m having a hard time deciding between the neon Trophy Bands and the glittery ones!
