Sneak peek of the custom tote made for our drawing winner

My drawing winner came up with a very awesome idea for her prize. She wanted a tote but not your average tote. She liked one in my shop, but wanted hers in much brighter colors and a mix of patterns that just says "WOW" and I think I accomplished that! I love how this turned out, with a funky combination of lime green, hot pink, bright orange, bright blue and lots of black this is NOT your average tote. I also threw in a mini crochet hook organizer that matches, since her business is to crochet wonderful goodies to sell. I really love it, and hope she does too!

I'm thinking I will do another giveaway once I hit 2000 fans....which may not be long, as I have already passed the 1600 mark! Thanks to all of my friends and fans for supporting me!

And the winner is.....

Are you ready????? The winner of my 1500 fans drawing for one customized item is  crazysocks :)  !!!!
Congratulations! I ams o excited to get started making you the apron, purse, or diaper bag of your choice! Thanks to everyone for being such wonderful, supportive fans!

WE MADE IT! 1511 fans!

WOW! I never thought it would happen, but we finally made it to that magic 1500 mark! Just think, way back in  January I had less than 100 fans and my goal for the YEAR was to make it to 150!!! So it is an understatement to say that I am thrilled to have made it this far! <3 I will be drawing for a winner in my custom giveaway today, but I will be doing it later tonight, which gives more friends time to sign up to follow this blog and get in on it. Currently there are 50 followers, so your chances are pretty good! :) 

Thanks again everyone, for all of your love and support! <3

Getting close to 1500 and a BIG GIVEAWAY!

I can't believe that I am currently at 1440 fans! Before you know it, I will reach that magical 1500 and have a drawing for my giveaway! Which would you choose, the purse, diaper bag, or apron? And with what fabric and trims? So many options....but you can only win by being BOTH a fan of my FB page and by following this blog! Tell your friends! (Or don't, then your chance of winning is even better! ;} )

Holy cats! Currently at 1403 fans! Thanks for the support!

WOW! Thanks so much to everyone who has helped me get to this point! WAY back in January, I had less than 100 fans, and my goal for the year was to make it to 150!  I can't believe the change since then! I would NEVER have gotten to this point without all of you sending your friends my way! Thank you all!

Well, this also means that we are less than 100 fans away from the BIG giveaway! Wat would you choose? A custom purse? A diaper bag in the fabric of your choice? Or a great vintage-inspired apron? Decisions, decisions... Only those who are following this blog will be eligible to win when the time comes, right now there's only 32 people following, so your chances are pretty good! :)

1392 fans! WOW!

Thanks to everyone who has sent their friends my way, I am currently at 1392 fans/likers! WOW! One giant step closer to that big giveaway at 1500! Here's another example of the wonderful items you have to choose from if you win. Remember, the winner gets their choice of a custom purse, diaper bag, or apron. Which would you pick? This is another favorite of mine, from items I have listed in my Etsy shop at the moment...something very similar could be yours if you win!

Summer is officially here!

Here in the U.S. this weekend we celebrated Memorial Day, a day to reflect and pay tribute to those who have served our country in the Armed Forces, and remember those who have lost their lives in the process. My family is full of veterans. Both my dad and my Father in law served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War (this is where they met, and due to that meeting they now share grandkids!), my husband's grand father was in the Coast Guard, my brother in law was a Marine, and many family friends have also served for our country. Thank you all for protecting our rights as Americans!

With this holiday comes the official start to summer! Backyard BBQ's, relaxing in the pool or at the beach. Things just seem to slow down a bit. (Or maybe they gear up, depending what you choose to occupy yourself with!) I'm looking forward to a wonderful summer with my crazy family!
