{Get the Goods Giveaway} : Hey Yo Yo

As I said in my post yesterday, one of my favorite things from Tate's party was the vintage striped paper straws I've had my eyes on forever, just waiting for the right time to use them. Anyone else like them? Well, today you're in luck!



Enter Amanda of Hey Yo Yo...

"I spent 4 years working for Martha Stewart Television as a recipe developer (pastry) before starting to sell on Etsy. I lived out East for a number of years while going to culinary school and got the Martha gig right out of school, worked for her for 4 years and then moved back home to Wisconsin to figure out what to do next with my life. That's when I started making cupcake pincushions for my first Etsy site, Smarmy Pants, and then eventually started selling cupcake supplies on Hey Yo Yo. Now that's going so well that I don't have much time to sew anymore!"

Now Amanda has 25 of her blue striped straws as seen at Tate's birthday party up for grabs for one lucky PDP reader! Whether you're planning a party or just sipping on a Saturday afternoon...these are so fun!



There are several ways to enter...leave a comment for each to get multiple entries! Please leave all extra entries in the comments here on the blog, not on Facebook or Twitter so I can keep track of them!
