Giveaway Day!


It’s been months since I’ve sewed anything. Mostly because my sewing table and fabric are in storage. But I still have plenty of stuff I’ve sewn in the past. So when I noticed that today is yesterday was Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day I knew I’d have something. And it’s the perfect thing for the holidays! I’m giving away two Holiday Wine Bags, to two people.

The details: These wine bags are made by me (a few years ago, I admit). They’ve been stored in an waterproof bin, in a smoke free home.

To enter leave a comment. If you want to leave a funny note or joke that’s great, but won’t increase your chances of winning. It will, however make me laugh, and it’s Monday, Tuesday, so that would be cool.

Giveaway is open until December 13 at 5 p.m. PST. I will email the winners by December 15. I will ship them by December 20. I’m willing to ship international, but I can’t promise you’ll get the wine bag by the holidays. Seriously, it takes a while to cross those borders.

So best of luck and start planning who’s receiving wine!



A Leap Day Giveaway!

It’s leap day! It’s an extra day to enjoy chocolate or wine or a delicious scone or maybe a donut! And lucky for you,  I’m hosting a giveaway! I will send one lucky winner a three-pocket sling purse of their choice. Just leave a comment below by Next Tuesday at midnight. I’ll announce the winner next Wednesday! I only ask that you spread the word… blog about it, post it on Pinterest, and tell your Mom. If I get a lot of comments, I’ll give away two, or maybe three!

A few more details.. These purses hang slightly lower than the photo above. Each has one main pocket int he center and two narrower pockets on either side. I have a variety of bold and muted colors, leave a comment with a desired color, and I’ll do my best to match it up. And again, don’t forget to spread the word!



We have 9 days until Christmas. And today we’re headed to Macy’s 8th floor to visit the exhibit, “The Day in the Life of an Elf.” And then we’ll come home and bake Gingerbread men. Saturday we’re heading to a Mini-Nutcracker. Sunday we have a Holiday party to attend. Between all of that we’ll be singing carols and wrapping presents and sitting by the tree. I can’t wait. What are you doing this weekend?


Happy Turkey Day!

I’m taking a few days off for the holiday. And we’re having Lobster, rather than Turkey, which actually is pretty traditional.  We’re also having Tuna Tataki, which has become our tradition. Are you having Turkey? Tofurky? Turducken? Tell me, I want to know.

And then visit Tyler’s blog, BabyLuxDesign, for a great Giveaway. Wouldn’t that little bunny look great on your tree?

Happy Boston!

Look what I won! A beautiful little painting of a Boston Terrier from Kat’s Creative Arts. In addition to her Puppy Paintings, she makes awesome FrankenSweaters from recycled sweaters. They’re so much fun.

Doesn’t it look just like my little guy?

Have a great weekend!


Giveaway Day!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! But the Comments for the Giveaway Are Closed. I’ll announce the winner(s) Monday.

It’s Monday! And I’m joining Sew Mama Sew in their Giveaway Day! I will be giving away one of these beautiful and oh-so-amazing-smelling Lavendar Sachets. The lucky winner can request a specific color. I have a few leftover from an Art Festival that was supposed to happen this weekend but, well, a blizzard came through town. (If you didn’t hear, we got 17.5 inches of snow up here in Minneapolis. In one day. We already had 16 inches, so yeah, we’ll be having a White Christmas)

So leave a  comment and I’ll use the random number generator on December 17th to pick a winner. I am willing to ship internationally, so anyone can enter….. cool!

And go check out all the other goodies that are being given away… I know that’s where I’ll be today!

Yoga Bag Giveaway!

photo by Melissa of The Linden Tree

My favorite little shop in South Minneapolis, The Linden Tree, asked me to make some Yoga Bags to sell a few weeks ago. I took the challenge, figured out a pattern, and brought a half-dozen to the shop a week later. I’ll be adding a few more to my Etsy shop soon, but first I need to give one away.

This bag is the first one I made while I was still figuring out the pattern, AND IT CAN BE YOURS!! The fabric is lightweight and the strap is made from fabric rather than a canvas strap. It holds a standard size yoga mat and has a long strap to throw it over your shoulder.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below and tell me about your ideal yoga bag. Pocket or no pocket? Long strap? Short strap? Bright or subtle pattern?

I’ll pick a winner on Sunday and share the big news on Monday. Until then, let’s practice our yoga breathing…. OMMMMMMM!

(sorry about the crappy bottom photo. it’s dark when I leave, dark when I get home, so I’m stuck shooting at the office, which is limiting, to say the least.)

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations Jenna Z.!
