I'm Blessed-Giveaway Day
Normally on Monday's I host an "I'm Blessed" blog party, and this week is no different in that aspect. However, this week I'm also participating in the "Giveaway Day" with www.sewmamasew.com. I absolutely love the resources on their blog and have been a very satisfied customer of theirs on more than one occasion.
So without further ado, let's get to business.
Here's the giveaway that I'm offering up. This is only for you residents of the United States to keep shipping costs down. I'm giving away 5 yards of the designer fabric from Timeless Treasures called "Apple."
There is a yard of each fabric: brown swirls, brown owls, ivory owls, fun green vines, and multicolored apples. This fabric is unwashed and new. Along with these drool worthy fabrics, I'm including a brand new copy of Sewing Clothes Kids Love.
I'm giving this away because I have found it to be probably the most helpful sewing books I have ever, EVER bought. It had so much practical information in there that I just have to share. It has 10 full size patterns too, so it's not too shabby. Pictured here is my copy. You can't have that one. I'll be shipping you your own brand new copy straight from Amazon.
This contest will be a straight up drawing, and I'll pick the random winner directly from the comment section and close the comment section next Friday and announce the winner. So you have all week to get your comment in (but I recommend doing it as soon as you read this because if you're like me remembering to enter a contest online gets pretty low on the priority list.)
To enter: leave a comment about how you are blessed. It's so easy to focus on the troubles in this world, and it's so appropriate, especially in this season, to count our blessings. Please leave your email address or some means of contacting you so that if you win I can get it to you. I haven't done too many giveaways, but I will say I've had to draw again on more than one occasion because I had no way of contacting the winner. Don't let that happen to you!
For those of you who do blog, and want to participate in the "I'm Blessed" event this week, be sure to click here to figure out how to link up, and make sure it's a good fit for you and your blog. The event thanks God for our blessings, and I want to keep it for those who do thank God. So you do not get any extra credit or extra entries in the giveaway for participating in the blog carnival and "linking up." The giveaway drawing is strictly coming from the pool of comments, and no amount of following me or following God or having the illusion of following either will earn you a better chance at winning. However, I love meeting other believers online and read all the links every week because it is so uplifting. So feel free to link up if you like.
As for my blessings:
I'm blessed with my husband who makes me laugh sometimes until I cry.
I'm blessed with a relatively clean house after Solveig's big birthday party yesterday.
I'm blessed with kids who remember how to play after I've pulled the plug on the t.v. last week.
I'm blessed with Christmas music that just touches my soul.
I'm blessed with friends who understand my crafting obsession and don't judge.
