Leap To It --- Early Registration Giveaway

Okay ladies, here's our first giveaway open to everyone who has joined the Flirty Apron Swap prior to midnight PST on Leap Day, February 29, 2008. Not a participant yet? Join today, silly!

Check your SPAM folders, because I also sent this in an email to all registered participants. Now's the time to add me to your address book so your swap partner assignment won't become SPAM, too.

Jan from Maple Lane Apron Company is giving away this gorgeous and flirty Havana Apron to one lucky swap participant!
All you have to do is visit the Maple Lane Apron Company site and browse around, then come back here and tell me what your two favorite items are in her shop by leaving a comment below. If you would like to enter a second time, blog about this giveaway at your own site, then leave the link to your post in a second comment. I will pick a random winner on March 1. Good Luck!

Jan says, "Maple Lane Apron Company is proud to be a sponsor in the Flirty Apron Giveaway. This is the first giveaway that I have had the pleasure of being part of. I started my company in October of 2007. I began with the idea of selling handmade aprons and a few kitchen accessories but after looking at many blogs and websites I have decided to carry other items such as Teapots, Teapot cozies, copper cookie cutters and other other kitchen and home accessories. I am proud of the fact that all of the products, with the exception of the teapots, are proudly made in the U.S.A."

I have to tell you that I just received my first order from Maple Lane and I am so pleased! My shipment arrived very quickly, it was carefully packaged in a gift box with hand-tied ribbon and note, then the aprons inside were wrapped in tissue with more ribbons and a little surprise ... I was sold before I even touched my new aprons! And what quality the aprons are ... carefully handmade with exceptional attention to details.

P.S. Ladies, please be sure to post the swap button on your blog if you have one.

    (Jan: I wanted to add that the formatting on the your Maple Lane site doesn't seem to be compatible with Firefox and/or my Linux browsers. I could send you some screenshots if you'd like so you can work it out with your developer. It makes some portions of your site completely unaccessible. )
