What I Whipped Up Wednesday + A Giveaway!

Hey there, rockstar.
This blog is growing by leaps and bounds-
the biggest linky party ever took place last week AND I reached 1,000 readers via Google Friend Connect.
HOLLA!
Thank you.
Sincerely.

Moving on to last week...




Natalie from Johnny in a Dress made these lovely pumpkins:





Alyssa from Sweet Sewn Stitches put this happy little dress together and offers a tutorial:





Elizabeth from Sew Chatty stitched together this awesome Tom's Flag Bag:





Maggie from Midwestern Sewing Girl put together these lovely sweater pillows:





And the most-voted-for link last week was from Amanda from Watch Out Martha with her Corn Chowder with Bacon recipe:





Thank you SO much to everyone who linked up!
If you were featured, be sure to grab a button off of my sidebar.
(New "FEATURED" buttons coming next week!)
And I have new rules for linky party.
I know, super lame.
Gotta keep things in order around here, though.


1. You do NOT have to link-back to this blog in order to link-up. I know that adding links to your posts is annoying. However, you MUST be a follower of this blog to add your link. (How else are you going to know if you've been featured?!)

2. Must link to YOUR post. Please do not link to your blog's homepage URL. You can add AS MANY LINKS AS YOU'D LIKE to the party as long as the link goes to a direct post.

3. If you use a photo that isn't your's and cite the source, that's totally awesome. The only problem is that I can't feature you because I have to rely on your source and add a bunch of crazy links. If you'd like a shout-out, use your own photos, please.

4. Last week was the first week to have someone link to their Etsy shop. I didn't write the book on linky party etiquette, but prefer to drive traffic to blogs and not shops. No offense, shop owners, but linky parties aren't the place to show off the goods.

5. Starting last week, every FEATURED link is pinned to my Pinterest account. This earns you more views and hopefully more readers. :)

Now that I've bombarded you with rules...


How about a giveaway?!

The Birds Papaya is giving away a necklace AND a set of earrings of your choice!
Hooray for choices!
Want something like this?


Or how about these?!


So many pretty options HERE.

To enter:
1. You MUST be a follower of this blog. Leave me a comment telling me that you are.
2. "Like" The Birds Papaya on Facebook and leave me a comment letting me know.
3. Every link entered into this weeks' party earns you an entry. One comment per entry, please.
4. Become a follower of The Birds Papaya blog and let me know that you follow.

Technically, you have unlimited entry options. ;)
Winner will be announced during next week's party!
(You'll want to be here- I have another awesome giveaway for you!)
Good luck!!


Happy Wednesday!
