Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day #1

I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out what to do for Sew, Mama, Sew!'s Giveaway Day. If you found me though their page, then I'm glad you stopped by and hope to hear from you in the future.

First, a little about me. I have a wonderful (nearly) 9 month old little boy that I have lovingly nicknamed Squeak, two fur babies, and a supportive husband, and I love anything to do with crafting!

Just so you can get an idea of my style, here are a few of my recent finishes:


Now, what you really want to know...

I decided to have two giveaways. One for handmade items and one for supplies.



This post is my handmade goodies giveaway. In this giveaway you will get three of bestselling items from my Etsy shop:  a Large Curvy Clutch, a Keyring Clutch, and an Earbud Pouch - all made from my precious Vera Bradley fabrics.

To enter simply leave me a comment telling me what kind of stocking stuffers you are getting for your loved ones this year.

Followers get an additional entry. Just leave a separate comment to let me know you follow my blog :)

International entries welcome!

Good luck everyone, don't forget to check out all of the other giveaways out there, and I hope you get lots of goodies!

  11. I don't have any stockings to stuff this year, so I'll mention that growing up, we loved that our parents would FINALLY buy us comic books and stuff them in the stockings! When I was older Mom revealed that was her patented way of getting us to SHUT UP for a couple hours as we read and re-read and shared and switched comic books between us 4 kids. Hee hee! We also always had one of those Lifesavers holiday "books" in our stockings.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Such a pretty giveaway, thank you for sharing. One of my daughters wants a stocking full of nail polish. I always include some sweet treats, a book, and a joke present too.

Tiny (travel size) tubes of toothpaste, small tins of breath mints, and other speciality items that each kid liked. Lip gloss, gum...other things that they didn't get much during the year. I sure do miss that part of Christmas!
