Giveaway Day!



Hi all! In hopes of helping to check one small item off of someone's holiday gift list this season I'm having a giveaway today in honor of Sew Mama Sew's Give-Away Day. I have to be honest here -- I fretted a bit about what exactly to give away and finally decided on an activity tote because it's the most popular item in my shop. I hope you like it:



It includes a crayon roll and two handmade notebooks inside plus a couple other small items I'm throwing in for the giveaway, just for giggles. More pics and a description can be found on this listing.

Please leave a comment on this post between now and Friday, December 5 and I'll announce the winner Friday afternoon. I hope this tote makes someone very happy...good luck! (edited to add: please remember to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win!)

Oh and don't forget to visit the other participating blogs via Sew Mama Sew. I'm thinking this day will go down in blog history as the biggest giveaway day EVAR!!!
