My BIG Giveaway!

Note: I know I said I would choose a winner on Monday. I didn't stop to think that I will be out of town without access to a computer. I promise I will post a winner on Tuesday! Thanks to everyone who entered.

To celebrate my post over at Moda I wanted to have a giveaway. Hopefully you will like what I chose. I'm giving away two Moda Honeybuns. One is the Caroler by Mary Engelbreit and the other is Glace by Three Sister (love this one). Second place prize (sorry no picture) is a charm pack. It's Recess by American Jane.

Ok, so here is what you gotta do. Leave me a comment, where your from, (general area if you don't want to say the city) and something fun about yourself. If you want to earn another entry then blog about this giveaway on your blog and help me get the word out.
I'm a dork, but if you just want to make my day then click that follow button. Yes, this blog is making me realize that I have no shame, but something about having a new follower just really makes my day (I need to get a life, I know). I will pick a number and post the winners on Monday Morning. Good Luck, and I can't wait to learn a little about you!

Woohoo! Pretties!

I'm from Washington. And I love to buy projects and eventually get around to them. ;)

Jen said...

There is something about jellyrolls and honeybuns that make my heart flutter! And it's not just the fact the words 'rolls' and 'buns' are in the titles. I'm totally drooling over those loverlies! Excuse me... I need to wipe my chin.

Welp, I live in West Haven Ut (near Roy Ut) and I have a secret love for Clorox Wipes. They are genius, I tell ya! Especially living in a house full of boys. And, if you could not tell, I'm a dork.

Christy said...

Hi! I just recently found your blog and really enjoy it. I'm from Northern Virginia. Hmmm it's so hard to think of something interesting about myself (ha that sounds so pitiful). I love buying a fresh box of crayola crayons. I think it's something about all those beautiful colors in one cute box.

Kasey said...

I from the windy city of Illinois. Hmm, something fun about me...lol, can't really think of anything. I love to hear a good belly laugh. They are so infectious and make me laugh as well.

I'm from Northern Utah. Something fun about myself....hmmmm.....years ago when I did daycare I was on a commercial for a local landscaping company! That's back when I had a great professionally landscaped yard! All the mom's signed waivers so their daycare kids could be in the commercial. It was just a local one but we had a ton of fun doing it! I have to ask though, where's this button to be a follower? I follow you but I don't actually have myself registered with a button. I'm off to post your giveaway on my sewing blog. Not too many people would see it on my private one!! Cindy

The Penningtons said...

Count me in! I am from Allentown, PA. I love your blog. I have been "stalking" you for quite some time thru SouthernCini's. I had no idea that you knew her in real life until Mothers Day. And something interesting about myself, besides I am a stalker, I also have an obsession with Mr. Clean and his magic erasers.

This fabric is adorable. I live in SW Michigan, not far from Lake Michigan. Beach life is grand.

Hockey mom to the max here. Okay, competitive cheer mom as well, but it's not as much fun as hockey-don't tell my daughter that. LOL

Quilt Hollow said...

Completely forgot the rules! Geez! I'm in NC and hope you'll visit my blog to see what type quilter I am. I'm now a retired military spouse who has lived all over the world and misses the travel!

Blogless me said...

I am from Belgium, Europe- the one up to the right from Paris, on the way to Amsterdam ;-), aka paradise for chocoholics and beer researchers.

I think that qualifies me for a job with bake/cake related material - gastronomy is taken very seriously around here, so much so that every type of beer comes with its own glass and you are in big trouble with the law should you deviate from the allowed glassware LOL

Vera said...

There is nothing exciting to tell about me but I would like to be in the drawing. I live in Sissonville WV.
I always enjoy your blog even though I don't do very many comments.

Kim said...

Oooooo.. Put my name in the hat, please. =)

I'm from Illinois. You are on my Reader.

Something interesting about me....Stitching Stella who is traveling around blogland visited my home in February! Oh, and I have way too many projects going on. Just visit my craft blog to see what I mean.I hope I win.....Love the Moda Fabrics.

jaybird said...

I'm from the city of brotherly love..better known as Philadelphia and besides quilting 24/7 I enjoy blogging, baseball, and spending time with family.

vanos said...

I've never used honeybuns! I loved your pattern on Moda. I live in Tucson AZ and I think that it's funny that you call your self a dork! Because I'm a dork also.

meg said...

Tee-hee. I know exactly why you don't have a picture of the Moda Recess fabric. *blush* I'll be gettin' that to you REAL soon! In the mean time, can I get in on this giveaway action?? I never win, but it is just so fun to enter!

Michele's Treasures, Teacups, and Tumbling Rose Cottage said...

Nice blog! I'm from south central Wisconsin and love items that are complete representations of normal things only in mini form (i.e. like my complete 1"x1" Bible with it's onion pages and leather cover). Perhaps this is why I'm drawn to beads--all of those little, tiny gems!
Thanks for the giveaway. ; )
~Michele

I live inland in S. Cal.

I met my husband the second and last time I went skydiving - 17 year ago. He fell for me (wink).

I also love to make souffles with anglaise sauce, especially in the winter to warm up our house (400 degree oven). I have the recipe memorized so I can whip them up quick for my 3 adorable children (5, 7 and 9) and manly man husband.
