Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

This has been a bit of a wild week. And it's ONLY Monday!!! Honestly, I just wish I had a day off of work. But medicine, music, and the "Holiday Season," aren't letting that happen. Not anytime soon, that is.
 
But we're not going to let that get us down. Nope! My Mom and I decided that we wanted to participate in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day. Since we were supposed to talk about this yesterday, and I didn't make it to our "Craft Fair," I was on my own.
 
I got to thinking. What are we enjoying at the moment? And what's a "hot" trend going on? Well, you can't go wrong with something for "baby." There are ALWAYS new babies! We are going to give away a copy of this book...
 
 

I first came across this book, at Wal-Mart. About 6 months ago. And I've made everything inside. More than 5 times! OK, so our family and friends, might have more babies than most. But you get my point. There is always a "demand" for baby items. For the price of 1 skein of yarn, and a button, you have a cute gift. A handmade gift! That just takes a day or so to make. :)

I might also have 2 other books from this series. A pack of crochet hooks. And a $50 gift card to JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby. The winners choice. We're feeling the "season" around here. And want to share something fun, with our readers. And visitors!!!

Now you ask, what do you have to do? Just leave us a comment. With your favorite Holiday Craft. Or Pinterest craft. Anyone else "in love" with Pinterest? Or is that just me? At work, I like to "steal" a few minutes, to look up crochet patterns, recipes, and holiday cheer!

Just leave us a comment. And you have until Friday, December 7th. Sew Mama Sew, says I have to close our giveaway by 5PM PST. So let's get those comments coming. Don't forget to checkout the other giveaways. And Good Luck everyone!!!

I love looking at all the kids' paper advent wreath crafts. The ones using handprints for the greenery and toilet paper tubes with yellow tissue paper jammed in for candles are probably my favorite.

Deana said...

My favorite Christmas craft is the gingerbread houses with my girls. The second favorite is sewing Christmas jammies for my girls. I don't think there is a thing I don't like about Christmas!

I love making Christmas ornaments with my preschooler-we did one this morning I saw on Pinterest: stuff a clear ornament (we used shatterproof) with cotton balls, then glue a felt triangle nose to the outside and use a Sharpie to make circles for the eyes and mouth. I did the Sharpie part and sprinkled glitter in, but my 3 year old did the rest :)

I'm due w/ #2 in Jan so this book is right up my alley!

Lisa Mather said...

Nancy Sue said...

As a child my folks helped us cut greenery and tie red ribbons to place on the outside window sills. We just moved several weeks ago, and some evergreen needed trimmed so we are carrying on that tradition with our 5 yr old son. My new craft this year (after he is zonked in bed) is crocheting starched stars and snowflakes for the Christmas tree. If I run out of time, due to the moving and such, I'm just balling up some white yarn and hurling it at the tree!! LOL!

Andrea said...

Fun, fun, fun!! Would love to win! I think this www.pinterest.com/pin/208150813997048237/, is a fun craft. Would love to try it out!
