Two Prizes * Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Time!

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!

Hello!!!  Let's have a giveaway!!!  I mean, who doesn't love to throw their hat in for the chance to win something fabulous?!  

Thanks to Sew Mama Sew and their Giveaway Day (or four), everyone has the chance to join the fun!  So what do you say?  Wanna give it a go?!  



Now, of course I would like you to check out me and my blog.  See what I'm about...but I get the frenzy involved in the event!  

Here is just a 'smattering' of me in fabric:

 


















I'm going to have TWO prizes.  Twice the fun, right?!  I promise not to make you jump through hoops and give up your first born to enter...no one loves to jump through hoops unless you are a puppy...and the first born thing, well I guess it depends on the day!


First up is a Hand Dyed Fat Quarter Bundle.  Hand dyed by yours truly...me!  These are such a bright and happy batch!  Nearly neon, but not quite!
  

I'll throw in a fat quarter of a hand dyed linen too!  Sweeten the pot...make it worth your while!


For the Handmade Goods part...

Summer is fast approaching and the children will be out of school.  Bored to death after a week most likely!  

A pencil roll-up complete with colored pencils, a matching bookmark (because reading is important) and a mini note pad.  All 'nature' inspired for that little tiny bug of yours!



What do you need to do?   You can be in the drivers seat on this one!  I have two options for you.  


Mandatory Question To Be Entered:

#1)  Why did the chicken cross the road?  Let's not say 'to get to the other side'!


~Extra Entry~

#2)  Follow me via ~ bloglovin, instagram, Google Friends or email  ~ or if you already follow, let me know!


• This giveaway is open to everyone!

• If you’re a “no reply” or an anonymous commenter, include your email address in your 
comment.

• Giveaway ends May 10th at 7pm CST

• I will pick two winners using Random Generator.  I will announce the winner on my blog 
and notify via email.   

 
So enjoy...have fun and be kind!

  127. When I was young, several crates of chickens fell off a truck on the highway. My critter-loving mother stopped and picked up the only surviving chicken. She actually put the bird in the trunk and brought it home, named it Birdie. So whenever I think about chickens, I remember that one. When we would call for the bird, the cats would come. When we would call for the cats, the bird would come. So... obviously someone must have been calling for the cat.
