Flash Giveaway!

Sponsors for tomorrow's Facebook Flash Giveaway!  In honor of reaching over 500 facebook fans, we're hosting a flash giveaway at 9 pm Central Time on our facebook page.  Here are the sponsors:

Bum Covered Diapers (of course!)
Nellie Bug's Tutus and More

Here's how the giveaway event will work.  At around 9pm, I will post a facebook status describing an item to be given away and linking to the sponsor's facebook page.  You will have 4 minutes to go "like" the sponsor's page, thank them for the giveaway, and then come back and comment under my status post.  I will pick a winner via random.org after the time is up.   I'll keep posting status updates with prizes until they're gone.  It will hopefully be a fun, fast-paced way for you all to see some great companies and get several chances to win a prize!

Again, thank you to all of our sponsors and facebook fans!

Second Photo Entry

Here's our latest BCD Photo Contest entry!  Don't you wish AppleCheeks grew in your backyard too?  He looks pretty happy!

Photo Contest Entries

We've received our first photo this weekend.  I thought I would go ahead and post entries as I get them, and at the end of the month I'll put them all together into a post for voting. 

Photo Contest--Change of Procedure

Because of Facebook rules I've recently become aware of, I need to make a change of procedure for our photo contest.  Photos for the contest will be displayed on this blog, and voting can be done on the blog or through email (melissa@bumcovereddiapers.com).  Apparently running the voting through our facebook page is not allowed.  If you submit a photo through our facebook page, I will transfer it to this blog.  

If you also are unaware of all the Facebook rules for giveaways or contests, check out this blog entry by Simply Stacie:
