SMS Giveaway day, the sequel



Sew Mama Sew giveaway day: View blogs with awesome giveaways, comment, win. Easy peasy!



I'm being unoriginal and giving away another activity tote + crayon roll, same as last time. I had something else in mind but accidentally spent 6 hours at the zoo yesterday. So yes, I am shamelessly blaming the penguins and meerkats for my lack of originality.



I'll pick a random winner from comments on this post on Sunday, May 31st to win either the black floral or the spaceman activity tote pictured here, winner's choice. More pics/views of both totes & crayon rolls are in my shop.

Good luck! And, be sure to check out the other giveaway goodness via SMS!

I have been wanting to make a crayon roll and haven't had the chance. I am a more visual person anyway. Having one in hand would make the process a whole lot easier.

robinsonsarewaiting said...

Never too much time at the zoo!! my little man would love the spaceman set!

Shannon Hillinger said...

That's a hard decision. The spacemen are so cool, but the black is classic.
I once went to a zoo that was 90% Lemurs, one really bored bobcat and an empty cage with a sign claiming it contained "North American Grey Squirrels".

Ariel said...

My little guy would love this! Great giveaway! Those Meerkats and Penguins....they'll get ya every time.

mscleaverchronicles said...

Can't blame you for getting "stuck" at the zoo! I wander in with my son thinking we'll be just a couple hours, and suddenly the whole day is gone and he's missed nap time.

At least you were doing something fun!

Besides, I love your activity totes.

Lisa said...

e.c said...

holy moly. All these comments...I don't think anyone is thinking nasty thoughts about those meerkats or penguins.

I can't imagine what your giveaway would have been had you had those 6 extra hours. This is awesome on its own. :)

Spaceman activity tote purdy please! (it's our next son's theme...super!)
