About Gracie's Garden

Gracie's Garden is a business created thanks to my sweet daughter Gracie Jane. I have two boys ages 2 and 5 and when I had a daughter I wanted to dress her in everything girly I could think of. I decided to start crocheting her hats from patterns I got off the internet and fell in love with making my own designs and different color combinations. These adorable and unique hats would make perfect baby shower gifts, birthday presents, or buy one for your own little ones.

A Few of My Favorite Things...... 3,000 FAN CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY!!!

*****THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!! THANKS SO VERY MUCH TO ALL OF YOU FOR PARTICIPATING AND FOR ALL OF YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT!!!!******


I knew when I reached 3,000 fans that I wanted to have a giveaway to thank all of my wonderfully supportive fans and customers!! I haven't had a giveaway in awhile so I decided to have Gracie's Garden Designs team up with some other AMAZING shops that are some of my personal favorites! I wanted to make the giveaway even more exciting!!! I LOVE all of the vendors in this giveaway and I'm sure you will as well! Here are a few of my favorite things.....

FIRST wonderful prize that you could win is from myself. It is a $30 gift certificate to Gracie's Garden. You can choose from an array of items such as crochet hats, silk flower headbands, crochet headbands, baby cocoons, baby booties, and more!! These adorable items make wonderful photography props, baby shower gifts, or buy one for yourself or your own little one!! I am honored to have such amazing and supportive customers!! :) I am also offering a second place prize of one headband of your choice!!

Photos beautifully done by my wonderful mom Coleen Rausch and the amazing Caralee Case Photography and Amy Robertson Photography.





The SECOND prize you could win is a $10 gift certificate from the amazing Brandy at Made Just 4 You.
She has the cutest bows out there in my opinion!! Everything she makes is high quality and durable. Her bows are very affordable and absolutely adorable! She is a mommy of two and enjoys making bows for other moms who can't afford them otherwise. Brandy is amazing to work with and her customer service is outstanding! Check out Made Just 4 You for all of your hair accessory needs!



The THIRD prize you could win is from my absolute favorite place to get my daughter's dresses. Liz at FrayBabyBibsandMore is offering an ADORABLE ruffled pillowcase dress with ruffle ribbon straps, a FrayBaby dress trademark! You can win this dress in any size newborn to 4T OR as a tunic 12 months to 8 years!! The dress is made with the ever so popular zebra and a perfect touch of paisleys. Of course you can always get a bow to match from Made Just 4 You and a hat to match the dress as well from myself at Gracie's Garden. Liz offers a wide variety of dresses, tunics, ruffled pants, embroidered shirts and onesies, and she even has an album of bows that are ready to ship and match her dresses. I have several dresses for my daughter and shirts for my boys from Liz. She is so sweet and has amazing customer service! Go and check out FrayBabyBibsandMore today!!



The FOURTH prize up for grabs will actually have TWO lucky winners!! The very sweet Laura Thomas from Pretty Presets for Lightroom is so generous and she is giving away TWO $50 gift certificates towards any purchase on her website. So, the first place winner will receive all of the items listed here and there will be ONE second place winner who will receive a $50 gift certificate towards any purchase at Pretty Presets AND a free headband of your choosing from me at Gracie's Garden Designs. Pretty Presets for Lightroom is a wonderful resource for any photographer. She is one of my mom's favorites so I had to add her in to my favorite things giveaway since my mom takes and edits a lot of my pictures for my business. These presets are compatible with Lightroom 1, 2 and 3 and Adobe Camera Raw in full Photoshop (not Elements). All of Laura's presets are gorgeous and unique and will make any of your pictures stand out from the crowd. Visit Pretty Presets for Lightroom today!!







The FIFTH prize you have a chance of winning is a sweet little monkey from Dulce who owns The Monkey Shop. The adorable monkey that you have a chance of winning is Forest the sock monkey. He is in the first picture and he is 14" tall and 5" wide. His color is lime green, dark gray light gray and cream, with stripes. He is soft and fuzzy and machine washable. I LOVE every sock monkey that I have ever received from The Monkey Shop. Each of my three kids have one and they all sleep with it every night. Dulce has amazing customer service and very fast shipping. She not only makes sock monkeys, but she also makes one eyed monsters, sock puppies, sock kitties, crochet hats and accessories, and even tutus for your sock monkeys. You will fall in love I'm sure when you visit The Monkey Shop.




Last, but not least is our SIXTH prize from the talented Angie at 4Inspiration. She is offering a $25.00 gift certificate good for anything you would like from her wide selection of items. She has some amazing tutu sets, butterfly wings, korker bows, flower hair clips, kufi beanies, clippies, jewelry, and so much more! Every Thursday she has a steals and deals game where she offers wonderful deals on all of her new items! She is so sweet and generous and great to work with!! Her customer service and turn around time is amazing! She loves custom orders and has a lot of options for costumes for your little one this Halloween! Go and check out 4Inspiration today!
