I'm thinking...GIVEAWAY!

Giveaway CLOSED.

It's been a loooong time since I've hosted a giveaway on MY own blog, so I thought today we'd do that. We got a call today reminding us that we have an appointment at Shriners coming up, which both my husband and I forgot about. And I'm almost certain that they're going to tell us that Sawyer needs to have his legs straightened...something I'm dreading and don't want to hear because, I'm not nearly as strong as Destini. :(
So, just in case we're making a family vacation out of the whole trip! The giveaway will go until I get back (sometime in the future) and then we will draw a name for the lucky winner of this adorable Tiny Clutch (made by Roni)...
Don't you just love the Amy Butler fabrics? So if you read this blog, or have ever read this blog, or stop by occassionaly, or are just discovering it today, leave a comment telling me some really good news that's happening in your life right now (one entry per person) and maybe you will be the lucky, lucky winner!
Oh and also when I get back I'm certain I will have some new pics to post of the absolute, most adorable little boys in the whole world (I think you know who I'm talking about). :)

I Love that I have to enter into a competition to win one of your bags, that I made non the less. You would think that this friendship would have benefits jeeeshhh! JK :) Tiffany you are great! This bag is going to make one lucky winner very happy. As for my good news? Only two days left of school, then me and the kids are going to party it up all summer long. Can't wait!!!



Oh and just so we are clear, this isn't really an entry for the giveaway, I live 2000 miles away, I have to screw with my best friend when ever the chance arrises. LOL

Ashley and Jason Faucett said...

My best friend who is like my sister (sure you can relate lol) had her first baby yesterday, so it's like I gained a nephew! I got to meet him tonight! My two year old didn't know what to think! :) By the way LOOOOVVVEE your designs! They are fabulous! ;)

Annalee Taylor said...

I LOTH it... I WANT IT! Roni is amazing. You are amazing. Can I be your friend! LOL. So I hope Shriners goes good and Sawyer doesnt have to have them straightened... your one tough momma. He is one tough boy.

Humm good news around here... we got our home refinanced and cut our house payment almost in half! AWESOME! Now, that my friend, is good news!

So Enter me in this one... at least 100 times! That might help my chances!

My husband and I have wonderful things happening for us right now...we have just completed three months of classes to adopt a child in foster care in our state! We can not have children of our own, so we made the huge decision to try to help a child that has no family. We are working on our homestudy now and will hopefully have a new member to add to our little family soon! By the way, LOVE your bags!

taggdarci said...

I'm so glad I came across your site...and just in time for this giveaway. :o) I LOVE your designs and would love this!

As for our good news, my hubby had applied to be a State trooper (ISP) and made it through the lenghthy hiring process, just to be told he was #9 and they could only hire 8. Well...that's not the good news, but this is... He just got a call telling him he is officially hired! YAY! Talk about a life changing phone call. :o) Best wishes while you're at Shriners!

Tania Grim said...

Some really good news is the weekend is going to be sunny and I can play outside all day :)

Wendy said...

We just had a new grandson last month. Love snuggling with this sweet little boy.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Darling bag, and I do love Amy Butler fabrics! Thanks for the chance to win it.

Now for good news...hmmm...nothing big going on in our lives right now. Just the usual day to day stuff of family life which is all good. But I guess the fact that my husband is still employed in his high tech job of 28 years is good news. We're hoping he can dodge the ax for a few more!

Hope all goes well with your family vacation and all it involves!

Love the bag! Hope I win! My good news is that I just had my 3rd baby about 2 months ago.

I love that fabric and your bags are darling!

Great news? I was First 100 at ChickfilA and get 52 free meals. I thought that was fun!

Smith Family said...

I'm off for the summer and looking forward to spending time with my kids and doing lots of sewing!! I'm determined not to let life get in the way of enjoying the things that are most important to me! Good luck on your trip!

Kelcie and Devon Kellogg said...

We are having a boy! Or a girl! We are having a baby! We just don't know which yet, we find out on the 15th! Can't you tell how excited I am by all the exclamation points! I am also not entering into the giveaway, I already won one and I just want to tell the good news whenever I can!

Kelly said...

I love that bag! My husband and I are expecting our first child in August, I can't believe how close it is! good luck to you!

Destini said...

Okay, so first, you are just as strong as me - believe me, if it has to be done, you WILL do it and make it through. The first 2 days are really tough though, and I totally had a breakdown at about hour 30 post-op.

Second, Roni's bag is absolutely ADORABLE! My good news, Trace is WALKING by himself!!!!!!

Have a wonderful family trip to Shriners, such a great organization!

I love the clutch, so I am willing to share some good news. Watching my Aunts kids while she is in Paris, has been a great experience, kids are full of energy and funny things pop out of their mouths all of the time. I can't wait to be a mom.

Kathy said...

Hi Tiffany,

I've been reading your blog for a while now and have purchased several of your bags and have a few 'in work'. (well fabric selected and some cut out) LOL

I would love one of 'your' bags to head over to Australia so I could show it off.

My good news is that my delightful 4 year old daughter still has her mum as I've been cancer free for 2 and a half years this month...Woo Hoo!!

Kathy

Joy Williams said...

I have been following your blog for months. I still need to get time to buy and sew your purses. They are great!

My kids have 4.5 more days of school. Then its time for VBS and the beach!

MaddyMazeStudio said...

School is out and I am going to teach my 13 year old daughter and some of her friends how to sew. Finally! She would like to learn and I am so excited!

Jenny said...

I do not need to win anything because I already did! You gave me one of your cutest diaper holders and I love, love, love, it!!! I didn't even get to tell you thanks you sneeky little thing!!!

Emily said...

Love that clutch!! My exciting news is that I am leaving for vacation in less than 4 weeks....I can't wait!!

Jessica :) said...

Mmm, what a fun clutch!! You are so talented {and Roni too!} to come up with these cute ideas! My good news is that we just bought a house and should be able to move within a week or so! So excited!!!

Greene Family said...

That clutch is SOOO adorable! My good news is that we had an awesome mini vacation a week ago with some our POLP families, and we are looking forward to vacationing with many more in Nashville in a few weeks!
I hope all goes well at Shriners and that you guys have a fun vacation! I'll keep my fingers crossed that Sawyer won't need surgery! If he does, you'll find the strength!

Amy said...

I love your blog and your beautiful creations. I was able to go away last weekend with family and a few friends. It was a "girl's weekend", filled with fun, food (lots of it!), games, and lots of talking! It was something that I have looked forward to for 6 months now!
Good luck with you sweet son.

My good news is that I woke up this morning and found your site.

Good luck with the little guy.

angie said...

Did you know Morning Glory is my favorite print ever!!! Love that bag!! For my good news, I just got my results back for this months' checkup and I am almost cancer free! Whoohoo!

BRANDY said...

first time here! Super cute clutch. As for good news? Well, I have MS and recently had an episode where I had one big medical bill rolling in (3 MRIs). Just got it yesterday saying the insurance company picked up all of it and we were responsible for a $1. I was completely relieved knowing MRIs run about $2,900 each and I had 3. :::happy sigh:::

Carol in E TN said...

After Friday I will be retired from my job and will be able to spend much more time in my sewing room! Ya-hoo!!!

Thanks for the giveaway! My good news is getting good news after having a health scare. Makes me grateful for the little things...

Needled Mom said...

I do hope that Sawyer will not have to undergo the leg straightening.

We have great things coming up. Our daughter is due with baby #2 in a couple of weeks and a DIL just announced another pregnancy. Life is perfect!

Nicki Lundeen said...

That bag is really cute!!! I wish you the best at Shriners. Something good this summer is that my daughter is expecting her third child...another boy!

This is my first visit to your blog. I hope to come back and peruse a little more later. My good news is a breakthrough. I was laid off from my job last October (not the good news), and we have thought and prayed much over the last 8 months and have decided that I'm staying home with my two sweet kids. The breakthrough is that for the first time I'm not totally freaking out about it (finances, etc.). Thanks for the give-away!

Mandy said...

Really great news! I found out that I'm not diabetic today :)

I just found your blog today but I'll be back!

Sinta Renee said...

I love your blog and your creations... I am a hit and miss follower:). I too have adorable little boys... who are now in their 20's & one of them is getting married in less than 3 weeks! I am so excited. (wife to be and I both love Amy Butler fabrics btw)

Fiesta said...

thank you for the chance to participate in your giveaway. My baby is getting married in November so I have been busy creating things for her wedding, bridal shower and her new home.

Kelly O. said...

well I'm having a baby in July...ou 3rd!
we're very excited!

Jennifer said...

Some good news... We were chosen to do an IVF at our military base (cheaper then off base). This means saving about $16k. They said they get 8-10 applications a day and can only take one. Better news would be us getting pregnant naturally never needing another round of fertility treatments, but that's not our story yet.
In other good news, we FINALLY found a private school to send our daughter (IVF baby) to for K3. The lady told me the school decided to start the K3 program 1.5 weeks ago and my daughter's enrollment filled the last slot. Woohoo!!! We really wanted to send her to a private school 2-3 days a week and this was perfect. I'm now thankful for random visitors who drop stuff off at our doorstep about their church.

jellaan said...

Love the clutch and love Amy Butler fabrics!!

Good news....paid off our furniture, my car and are finally getting the yard looking nice (mulch, bushes, etc.) after living in our house for 2 years!!

PaTcHwOrK jEnN said...

I can't say yet what my awesome news is, but it should be up on my blog in a bit. I screamed when I found this news out. It is very exciting.

Kristy said...

Good news on my homefront is that my MS flare has slowed and I get to go back to work next week. 3 weeks off and nothing to do...My prayers are with your family during your Shriner's appt.

Lisa said...

Hi, Tiffany! Just discovered your blog today from Kati Cupcake. Love give-aways. ;)

My great news: I'm pregnant with our 4th child, due next week, and planning an unmedicated VBAC. I'm so excited, and my husband is so very supportive. We are anxious to meet our new little baby.
Hope your trip went well!

Lizzie said...

What cute bags. Good luck with Shriners and enjoy your break. After 12 years of living in our house we are remodeling the huge family room, giving me some studio space - yeah that is so exciting.

Erica said...

My really great news is kinda cheesy. We are into the third week of my kids summer break and the sun is finally out. Wahoo, we are headed to the park and are planing on enjoying every last drop of sunshine!

portraitsbtbrianne said...

After viewing many a sewing/quilting blogs, I am determined to redo my entire living room in bright fun fabrics! Thanks for some inspiration!

Joan and Kevin said...

I just love it, it is soooo cute with the Amy Butler fabric.

allsewnup said...

Our first Grandson was born 7 weeks ago and we have a great-nephew due the end of June.
I'm so glad I found you through Katie.

The good news for me is that my brother just came to visit for the first time in a long time and since school is out traffic is much lighter. Wooo hoooo!!!!

My good news is that my only child graduated from high school on Sunday, and I only have six days until I'm done with work for the summer. Looking forward to catching up on some sewing projects! :^)

Dandelion Quilts said...

My vacation starts in 2 days...that's pretty good, right? I wish you good news or some peace from your trip and worries.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My only daughter who has lived 1400 miles away for the last six years (her husband just got his PhD - yay) is moving 1350 miles closer to me!!! That is the happiest news after just becoming a grandmother for the first time (my son)!
