Giveaway #6: Funky PolkaDot Giraffe – CLOSED

Hi! I’m Kyla and I’m a former 2nd grade teacher turned SAHM that is the creative lunatic behind Funky PolkaDot Giraffe. When I started Funky PolkaDot Giraffe over 2 years ago I was making burp cloths and diaper/wipe caddies. I only had a little boy and didn’t have much need for bows or clips. I chose the name Funky PolkaDot Giraffe because my son ADORES giraffes and I love polka dots and we’re a little funky, so it fit us perfectly.

When I found out in June of 2008 that I was having a girl my wheels started turning and I started making bows. I started with korkers and it has evolved from there. I owe most everything I know about bow making to my friend Ashby - she’s a great teacher and tutorial writer.

From there is has snowballed and I started making headbands, princess clips, seasonal ribbon art creations (like my Turkey, Snowman, and Chocolate Bunny), car seat canopies and camera strap covers. It’s been a fun and exciting journey into the creative – there are so many things I want to make, but only so many hours in the day!

I’m so excited to be here on Crap I’ve Made and help celebrate her 1,000,000 hit! So, to help celebrate such a momentous occasion, I’m giving away a $15 gift certificate to my shop!

    I would love a turkey clip in peacock colors. But if I couldn't use my winnings for a custom clip I would choose between the snowman or the rainbow clip. I wish I had had the monkey clip and banana clip this weekend when I took MiniDork to a monkey-themed party.
