May 21st, 2010  |  Published in Contests  |  0 Comments

WOW! Thank you all so much for visiting my little corner of the internet and leaving me with so much amazing inspiration!! I am putting together a post with all of the awesome links that you left me so that everyone else can be as inspired as I am. Hopefully I’ll get that post up by tomorrow.

But before I spend more time getting lost in inspiring tutorial- and recipe-land, I thought I should announce a winner.


Congratulations to Commenter #22, Jessica Hills!! Jessica left a drool-inspiring recipe for Orange Rolls. I will definitely be trying them! Everyone should also check out her cute blog, A Few of My Favorite Things.

Thank you, thank you to everyone who stopped by and left such kind words. Happy Spring!


Giveaway Day!

May 16th, 2010  |  Published in Contests  |  108 Comments

I am giving away this compact tote bag for Sew,Mama,Sew! Giveaway Day. It can be stuffed into the pocket so you can just throw it in your purse and always have an extra bag handy.

I think I’ll use this opportunity to get some inspiration from blogland. To win the tote bag, comment on this post with either:

  • a link to your favorite free tutorial out there in blogland
  • the name of your favorite springtime recipe (and a link, if possible!)

Post your comment by May 20th, 11:59 pm. Be sure to include an email address so that I can get in contact with you if you win.

I’ll choose the winner at random from the responses on May 21st. I will ship to anywhere in North America.

And if you don’t win, no worries! You can see my post below with a full tutorial to make your own!

**Edited to add** Wow, so much great inspiration already! I will put together a comprehensive list of all of the great tutorials and recipes from the comments and post it at the end of the week. Thanks everyone!!


We have a winner!

My favorite holiday is Christmas because I get to decorate the house any way I like and my husband just keeps mum about any decision I make.

Congratulations Amanda! I’ll be emailing you for your address so that I can mail off your calendar to you straight away. And everyone else should check out Amanda’s super cute blog, sasikirana handmade.

Thanks to everyone for participating!! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and didn’t get trampled today at Black Friday sales.


Blogiversary Contest!

November 20th, 2009  |  Published in Contests, Crafts, Holidays, Letterpress  |  19 Comments

It’s a month of firsts for me! My first wedding anniversary, first blogiversary, first craft sale, and first CONTEST!

I made these letterpress calendars to sell at the craft sale this weekend. For the holidays New Years, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, there is a cute little holiday picture instead of the date. They fit into an empty CD case for display. I think they would be perfect for the office!

To win a calendar, simply leave a comment by Thanksgiving Day telling me your favorite holiday and why. I will pick one comment at random to determine who the winner is! Be sure to leave some way for me to get in contact with you. I am happy to ship internationally.

Here’s to another year! Thanks for reading!
