Tutu Fun

I'm taking a break from the Favorite Things Giveway, to talk about a couple of my other favorite things.  Tutus and St. Jude Heroes.

It's no secret that I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED my tutu for Princess Half this year.  It's also no secret that I love "my tutu lady"  better known as Kristal from Atutudes.  You can check her out here .  I fell in love with her Snow White tutu from a blog post about a child's birthday party, I tracked her down on Facebook and asked her if she would be able to make that for me for Princess Half.  She obliged and this beauty was created:



I wasn't sure how it would work, I wasn't sure about tulle on a warm'ish day but it was fabulous.  The tulle was so so soft, not itchy and had just the right amount of sparkle.  The Apple decal was the crowning touch. It was poofy without being too poofy and most importantly it didn't get in my way.  Believe it or not I sort of forgot it was there.

I am super excited to announce that Kristal has offered to help me with my second favorite thing my St. Jude fundraiser.  Did you know for just $75.00, St. Jude is able to provide birthday and holiday parties and coming off a chemo parties?  That alone deserves to be celebrated.  Such a small amount that can provide such happiness and provide hope to the child and their family.  No donation is too small to make a big impact and this is where the two combine.

Kristal has offered me a Custom Tutu for one lucky Suzanne Ran reader who donates to St. Jude on my behalf.  For every 10.00 donation you get one chance to win a custom tutu valued at 55.00.  Hot on the heels of the Princess Half and Glass Slipper Challenge, I say it's never too early to start costume planning.  Here's a chance for an awesome tutu and the opportunity to help the children of St. Jude.  Kind of win, win right?

To enter just go to my personal donation page:  http://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR?px=2238743&fr_id=4960&pg=personal and donate at least 10.00. Come back here and click on the RaffleCopter link to provide me the name you donated under so I can have everything tied together.  The raffle starts at 5p Central time and will run through Monday, July 15th at 5p.  Thank you so much!
