Christmas Gift to One of You!

Hey Friends! I love the Christmas Spirit this time of year. Everyone is so full of love and the spirit of giving. I wanted to join in. I made this purse Friday and it's pretty cute. If you want to make one, here is where you can get the Free Pattern for it. It was really easy to make, but if you aren't the sewing type, never fear. I am giving this purse away to one of you.


It's a small purse. More like a sachet. It won't hold a lot, but it sure is cute. It would even work for a little girl. In fact, both my girls are itching for a chance to call it their own. (I am making more for them.) It folds up nicely too, so it doesn't take up any room at all.
So leave me a great comment. In your comment, link me to something cool. It can be something to make, something to see, or something to read. And if you are new to my blog, tell me what brought you to my neck of the woods.

I will draw a RANDOM winner Thursday morning. (So bribery won't work, but it's nice all the same!)

I love this spice company. I have been shopping from them for about 8years now. They have wonderful selections, fresh spices AND killer gift assortments (that's the best part). I love to send spice assortment packs to my relatives for Christmas. The grilling one and the salt and pepper ones are my favs!

Such a cute bag! I saw your comment on LollyChops. Darn, you already know about her! She's the coolest, don't you agree? Another crafting blog I love is Zaka Life: http://zakkalife.blogspot.com/ She has some very fun ideas!

I had so much fun making the decorations and I got a lot of ideas off this website!

What brought me to your blog? I belong to a group on www.cafemom.com that is for moms who love to craft and they had a link to your blog for homemade stuff!

What a great give away!!

The bag is really cute! If I won it, I would probably re-gift it because I just wouldn't use it enough. If it was bigger I would use it...so...if you draw my name, you don't have to give it to me cause someone should have it that would use it often.

Anyways...a funny blog that I am sure you would like is Joel frosts. At the very bottom, he has a video called Trimester, it is very funny. paradisefrost.blogspot.com

Hi Shaina!
That purse is adorable!
This one's pretty great. She posts all sorts of links to great coupons and sums up ads from lots of different stores. She also posts the code fr free redbox movies every monday.

Cute purse! I'd love one especially if it would hold my scriptures in it! I am searching for something cute for that! I guess if I don't win I ask my mom to make me one when I go visit her :)

Yesterday I was with the girls in a boutique and came across a display of these products:

We were giggling like children for a solid fifteen minutes. The clerk must have thought we were nuts. My favorite is: "Wow! I get to give birth AND change diapers!"...
