A little over two weeks ago, I awoke one Saturday morning to find a very exciting email in my inbox. It was from the wonderful Katie over at Katie's Korner informing me that I had won her Accuquilt Go! Baby giveaway and would be receiving one with my choice of three dies! I literally was bursting from the inside! I couldn't believe that I actually had won one of these babies! I had been entering these giveaways for quite some time, but never thought I would actually win one! The best part? Accuquilt shipped this baby to me so quickly. I sent my information to Katie on Saturday and literally had this Go! Baby in my hands by the following Friday. Not even a full week!
I had my choice of three dies, which actually was really really hard to pick, since Accuquilt has around 58 available for the Go! Baby. In the end and lots of lots of reading, I picked the Circles, Drunkard's Path and 2.5" Continuous Strips. I can not wait to make binding with the 2.5" strip one! I ended up picking both the circles and drunkard's path because I knew that cutting both of these things out by hand are a pain (especially the circles) and having a die to do it, would make them so precise!
My son also felt like he had won the jackpot, as soon as I brought the box inside the house he started screaming "treasures, treasures!" As soon as the tape was ripped from the box, he discovered his own little present, a box full of those air pocket balloons, which resulted in hours of popping and so much cheap entertainment for a three year old. It is amazing the things that thrill us all, young and old!
Wow! You guys are amazing! I was thinking maybe I would receive around 200 comments for this giveaway, but you all blew me out of the water, 604 comments! Crazy! Mind blowing! Awesome! Thanks to everyone who entered and welcome to all my new followers, I am glad to have you! Time for the winner...
And Number 58 was...... SHOLA who said, "My fave movie of ALL time is 'Labyrinth' with David Bowie and Sarah Connoly!"
Congrats Shola! I have already sent the winner an email, but if I don't here from her by Monday, then I will pick another number!
Ironically, Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies too, and I know that I responded to more than one of you guys (who also said this was their favorite movie) that I thought David Bowie was super sexy in this movie! But since none of you responded back, I'm taking that to mean that I am the one weirdo in the world who thought that! HAHA!
I plan to do a post in the next week with the results of what you all said were your favorite movies! I found some clear front runners for sure! Also a few interesting choices!
Until next time..
and if you haven't seen Labyrinth, you should check it out!
Giveaway is closed! Feel free to comment, but everything after #604 will not be included in the drawing. Thanks to everyone who entered.
It is giveaway time here at Marci Girl Designs! I decided to play along with Sew, Mama, Sew! and host a giveaway in conjunction with their May Giveaway Day! If you are a first time visitor, thanks for stopping by! More importantly though, thanks to my blog followers and regular readers, your daily encouragement, ideas and comments mean so much to me! Awww...enough of the mushy stuff!
On to the giveaway! Here is what is up for grabs:
5 fat quarters of Denyse Schmidt's latest line of fabrics available at JoAnn's Fabric Stores.
1 Louise Pleated Wristlet PDF Pattern by Marci Girl Designs, emailed directly to you.
2 fat quarters of Heather Ross's latest Out of Print line from Spoonflower.
Awesome right? You can't even get those Heather Ross prints anymore, and the Denyse Schmidt prints are rapidly getting very hard to find! Even better, you get an awesome pattern (from my shop) that you can use all these great fabrics to create a super cute clutch for yourself, or an awesome lady in your life!
The Details (How to Enter!) And yes, I will ship internationally!
1. Leave a comment, and in that comment answer this question, "What is your absolute favorite movie of all time?" (1 Entry)
2. If you are currently a blog follower, and have added your little photo to the Google Friend Connect widget to the right, you get an extra entry. If you are a follower through Google Reader (and I know there are quite a few of you out there) just add your photo to the widget and leave a comment that you did so. And if you want to become a brand new follower, just add your photo to that same little widget, and leave me a comment that you are a new follower! (1 Entry for Either of These 3 Options)
You have a total of 2 chances to win! Just leave a separate comment for each. Make sure you fill in the Email spot, so that I have a way to contact you if you win! If I am unable to contact you, I will pick another winner. The giveaway closes on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at midnight. Thursday morning, I will pick a winner via a Random Number Generator, and will send you an email letting you know that you won, and requesting your mailing address! Good luck and thanks so much for visiting!
Two lovely ladies, Lindsay and Mary recently started a new website venture, Craft Buds, which is a site devoted to helping you grow your handmade business, plus lots of other cool things like tutorials, giveaways, and one of my new favorite features a weekly list of giveaways. Anyone can add their giveaway to the site and I (or you) can visit and see a ton of giveaways that are currently going on in the blogging community right now! You can visit the Giveaway Roundup HERE. Neat idea, right? I thought it was genius!
To celebrate the start of their new venture, Lindsay and Mary held a giveaway of two Sherbet Pips charm packs. Well, you guessed it, I WON! You should know by now my love for Sherbet Pips, so I was pretty ecstatic to have been picked as the winner. The best part? Lindsay contacted me Saturday to let me know that I had won, and shipped the same day, so I had these babies in my hands on Tuesday! Super fast! That made it even better! Now I just have to decide what to make! I really want to make myself my own lap quilt, but I am struggling trying to decide what pattern. Any suggestions?
Make sure to hop on over to Craft Buds and see all the cool stuff that they have to offer!
Thanks so much to all you lovelies for entering my giveaway! I loved reading all of the super sweet comments from all of you! And now for the winner...
