My Very First Ever Blog Giveaway Ever!

Yes, folks, you read that blog post title right! It's time for my very first ever blog giveaway ever!!!

I'm so excited!!

((squealing with delight))

You may recall I mentioned a few days ago that I won a little giveaway on Spring Creative's blog. Well, I received my prize yesterday, a beautiful new messenger tote kit! Here it is!

It's very cute in person (my online pics never seem to come out very well). Anywho, I decided I would LOVE to make this messenger tote as a giveaway for my loyal blog readers! Yay!

The good news is, I already have experience making one of these for myself, which I love, by the way. I learned a lot my first go 'round so I'm expecting to be able to make this one with much more skill and somewhat more ease.

The bad news is, I can't decide which side of the fabric to use!

So this giveaway is gonna be REALLY easy for you. All you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS BLOG POST (i.e. not on Facebook and not via Twitter) and tell me which side of the fabric you would want as the outside of your messenger tote. I will use to select a winner from all of the comments, and the winner will receive the finished product as soon as it's complete!

So simple, right?

Oh, but I bet you're wondering what exactly your choices are, am I right? I thought you might be. So here you go!

The two sides of the fabric are (click images to view larger)...

Crazy Flower!

Crazy Dots!
Comments must be posted by 11:59 PM EST on Wednesday, April 6, 2011. The randomly selected winner will be announced on Thursday, April 7th!

Thank you in advance for your participation is my first ever blog giveaway ever! So. Much. Fun!!! :)


  1. I would LOVE to have the Crazy Flower for my new lovely Messenger Bag made by a good friend of mine whom I haven't seen in WAY too long! Shame you won't be personally delivering it too! HA! ;-) Can't wait to see you guys!

  3. I like the crazy dots pattern the best. By the way.... congrats on starting your new sewing endeavour. You did a great job on the apron and the other tote!

  5. Ooooh I love this!!! My vote is for Crazy Flower for sure! :-)

  6. Crazy Dots!
    and just so you know I'm not a crazy stalker lady-- I'm a friend of Tina B's-- and I've been praying for Chase since he was born. :)
    Thanks for "spreading the love" with your give away! :)

  7. I LOVE that you're enjoying your new sewing hobby - and we all get to benefit from your pictures, ideas, and now a GIVEAWAY!?! Awesome. Personally, I like BOTH patterns, but I think I'd have to choose the crazy dots.

    I hope Chase is doing well,that you're all settled back in at home, and that your schedule is returning to some semblance of normal.

    Love to all!

  8. I love them both, but I think I love the flowers the most!! Super cute!!

  9. Hmmm, I think I Like the dots! Glad you're doing a giveaway. I'm always glad someones doing a giveaway, love to enter but never seem to win. :)
    I'm so thankful Chase's cath went well!!

  10. So good to see how well our Rock Star is doing! The only sister who DIDN'T get a sewing machine from Grammie...:-) Keep it up! You'll be amazed at what you can create! I vote for the Crazy Dots:-)

    Love ya, Mo

  11. I love the Crazy flowers.....

    P.S. I saw the post of your messenger bag that you made and it was adorable. I love it! I wish I was more crafty!

  12. I would love to have the crazy flower print as my messenger bag! I am sure everyone would love it on my unit! I work on the Heart unit at Children's Hospital in DC!


  13. I'm thinking that my Hadley would LOVE the "Crazy Flower" bag!!... :-)

  14. Crazy dots for sure ! I am amazed where do you find the time...

  15. I like the flowers, but if you pick my name... pass the bag onto "Anonymous Stephanie" at the heart unit in DC. A little "sunshine" in the heart floor would be awesome! Nothing like spreading a little Chase love around!


  16. Crazy dots, girlfriend! :) This is so great! I (like Joelle) never win anything so I will be in complete "shock and awe" if I actually get to use this fun bag!

  17. I'm going with flowers! Super cute! And I loved the apron you did :)

  18. I love the dots! I'm obsessed with anything polka dot! :o)
