Giveaway from Umba Lumba!!

This week, I’m so excited to be hosting a giveaway from Umba Lumba! These hand sewn sock monsters are so fun I can hardly contain myself! Basically, every pregnant friend I own will be getting one of these bad boys for a shower gift from yours truly!

The winner will be free to select any sock monster from Umba Lumba’s Etsy, OR you can send in a pair of fun socks, and Umba Lumba will create a custom monster just for you! The Etsy Shop is getting a little sparse, they can’t keep these bad boys on the shelf, so for inspiration for custom monsters, check out some previous designs here.

To Enter:

1.  Comment below.
2.  Like or share this post on Facebook (there’s a convenient little link below), tweet, blog, tumble or coconut express about this post, and comment a second, third or fourth time to say you’ve done so, and you’ll earn yourself additional entries!
3.  Entries must be received no later than Thursday, 8/11.

Winner will be selected at random and announced on Friday, 8/12. Be CERTAIN to leave a way for me to contact you should you win, otherwise, another winner will be selected.

Good luck (and happy Monday)!

Enjoy your weekending fun.
Find lots of reasons to laugh and frolic,
because Summer’s wrapping up faster than you can say,
“slip n’slides and Otter Pops.”
