Winter giveaway!!!!!

Hello everyone! So, lately I haven't been a very good blogger, as you all can probably see. I have been very busy with school since it's my senior year, and I haven't had much time to do anything else. But still, I have some time. I should be working on making my blog better instead of just kind of ignoring it. I haven't commented on any of your blogs in such a long time and I feel bad about that. I don't deserve to have people commenting on my blog if I don't even comment on their blogs. I barely get any comments anymore, but I am so so grateful for those of you who still comment on my blog! It means so much to me. Recently, I have been getting around 50 views on my posts, when I used to get 100+. I have also lost 6 followers in the past few months and don't know why all my stats are dropping. I feel like I am just being a horrible blogger. I know I don't post as much as I used to, and I need to try harder to get 3 posts up every week. My posts have been mainly photoshoots, because that's what is easiest for me. I haven't replied to any comments on here since the middle of September either.

So, I have decided that I am going to try very hard to be a better blogger this year. I am going to start commenting on your blogs again, I am going to reply to all the comments I haven't replied to since September, I am going to try to post at least 2 times a week, but hopefully I can do 3, and I am going to try to add more variety to my posts. But for the post variety, it would help soooo much if you guys could go to the request page and give me some ideas of what to post.

Anyways, now for what you probably clicked on this post for.....

To apologize for being such a horrible blogger, I am having a Winter Giveaway!!!!!

Are you ready to see what you could win?!?!!!


Here they are! You could win these cute skinny jeans!!!

Here are a few extra pictures, then I'll show you some of the pants details.







Here is a full view of the skinny jeans.

They are made from a purple floral corduroy fabric and have two working pockets in the front.

They have a seam down the side to give them better shape.

They also scrunch up a little at the bottom which gives them a cute look.

There is a fake front area where there is a zipper on normal jeans (there is not a zipper in these, which is why I said it was fake).

And here is the back. These jeans are a little poofy at the top, as they were a test of a new pattern I made. I fixed the pattern so it wouldn't do that, so in the future, my jeans wont be poofy.
 
Here is one last look at the jeans!
 
*Giveaway only includes the jeans!!! The doll and tank top are not included!!!*
 
Do you want to know how to enter?
 
Here are the rules:
 
1. You must be following my blog. If you have already followed by email, just tell me. I will not be putting the "follow by email" gadget up again, so you will have to follow normally if you wanted to follow by email. I will be checking if you followed me!

If you don't know how to follow, read this paragraph. If you know how to follow, then skip this paragraph.
All you need to follow is a google account. If you don't have one, they are very simple to create. You don't have to put in your real info, just put your online username as your first and last name and make sure the birthdate you put is one that shows that you are 18 or older. Once you have created your account, just go to my blog and there will be a thing on the right side that says "my amazing followers". Click the blue button that says join this site, then another page will pop up. (A page may also pop up that asks you to sign into your account) Make sure you click the circle that says "follow publicly" and then click "follow this blog". You have now followed!

  2. Hi Kaitlyn! I'm sorry that your views have gone down and that you've lost a few followers. That's definitely no fun :(
    I also have not been posting as much and I mostly do photoshoots, too, since they're easier. I feel bad about that, but I'm going to try to do more posts this year.
    Also, I just want to say that it's okay. We all get being busy ;) Just don't push yourself too hard. I'm sure we'd all be great with even one post a week. Three is a lot to ask for :)

    P.S. That's too bad that you have lost followers and views. :( Don't feel bad about not posting enough, if you can't though. I agree with Jaclynn; one post a week is perfectly fine. :)

  9. Great pictures, Kaitlyn! (And awesome jeans - love the pattern!) I'd love to enter; I'm 14 but I have permission. As for my favorite thing on your etsy, it's the mint colored hoodie, by far (Not that I don't love it all! ;D ) It looks so cute and comfy, and makes me wish it were in my size! Also,I'm sorry to hear the blog isn't getting as many hits, but don't be so hard on yourself! The posts you do put up are great, and it's awesome of you to even get that many up with school and stuff. :p
    Thanks for hosting! ~Diana
