The 900 Fan Giveaway

I'm busily working here on the very last of the benefit orders (like less than a handful are left), lots of customs, and some pretty fun skirts for the upload on Friday....whew...it's busy here this week ( super busy...I was awake until 5:30am this morning working and back up at 8:00am working again).  If I owe you an email or if I'm late on your order, please know I'll get there....it's busy. :)  While I'm working away over here, I thought I would put up the 900 fan giveaway for all of you guys though!  This giveaway will be for a free custom DRESS (and of course, if you're a boy mama, I'll do a hoodie).  To enter, just leave a comment on the blog below.  For a SECOND entry, please post about this giveaway or hyperlink Go Go Goldfish in your Facebook status and then leave a second post here on the blog that you did it!!!  A winner will be randomly selected this Saturday evening!  Good luck, friends!

We have a WINNER....and little rundown of things to come! ;)

First of all, I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated and entered the 800 fan Giveaway for the Pinwheel Twirl skirt!  I cannot tell you how uplifting and encouraging your comments were to me this week!  It's been a rough week to say the least, and I know I wouldn't have handled it quite as gracefully without all the support I've received!  Figuring out everything that has been opened/taken/purchased/etc. in my name may be a long road, but I have taken all the appropriate first steps and I am confident things will be resolved eventually. 

Before I announce the winner, I want to let you know that this week's giveaway is only the first in a series of new and different giveaways that are yet to come.  I will announce the 900 fan giveaway on here sometime in the next few days.  Each giveaway during the next few weeks will be better than the next, and will include some items that you've never seen from me before, leading up to one kind of crazy (so crazy I have hesitated even doing it) prize to be given away when I hit 1200 fans on Facebook (not that far away)!  Are you excited yet?  I know I am!  Also, please note that if you are still waiting on a benefit order, the rest of those should be mailed out tomorrow and Monday.  I do have a large batch to mail in the morning and then I will be out of town on Sunday of this weekend, but will try to finish all remaining benefit orders tomorrow so that they can go the P.O. Monday.  Next week is completely dedicated to finishing all private customs that are waiting before I start on July's list.  So.......without further ado....there were 87 comments for the giveaway this week.  I've plugged those numbers into random.org and it gave me.......................number 87 (that doesn't happen very often!)!!!!  Congrats, Nikkie Strain!  Please email me at gogo.goldfish@yahoo.com so we can discuss the design for you new skirt! :)

Need a little pick-me-up!

So for those of you have been following me on Facebook, you know that I'm going through some stolen identity issues right now.  I'm scared, shocked, rocked, rattled, and mad....and my day today has been totally unproductive in the sewing department.  And to top it all off, I'm already drained for the day and I still have so much to do.  So, that's the icky stuff.....which brings me to the reason for opening this blog up a little earlier than I had planned.  I need a pick-me-up.  I need a little smile or a laugh today or a hug or to give something away...cause usually giving something away makes me super duper happy.  So, let's give it a try! ;)  Since over on the Facebook page we've now surpassed 800, 900, 1000, and on are on our way to 1100 fans (which makes me totally excited), I thought it might be fun to do a couple little giveaways leading up to one really big one.  Each giveaway will be different!  So, the first giveaway (the 800 fan giveaway) will be for a FREE CUSTOM PINWHEEL SKIRT.  I can do these skirts in sizes from 12 months all the way up to a woman's size XL! :)  If you'd like to win, please just leave a comment below here on the blog.  Winner will be announced Friday evening.

Oh, and a couple more things to note....as I mentioned, this blog was not intended to be shared this early....so the design will change.  I've only begun playing with the image, so better things are to come.  Also, I had wholeheartedly intended for ALL benefit orders to ship by Friday.  I still hope to achieve that, however I've had a lot of unexpected stuff going on yesterday and today so if I run into the first part of next week with those orders, please don't be upset.  I promise I'm working on it!  Now all you super fantastic GGG fans, get to commenting!!!! ;)
