Giveaway Day–Sewing Supplies

This Giveaway Day has concluded – join me in congratulating Blu on winning these sewing supplies!

 

It’s Giveaway Day once again.  I love the fact that Sew, Mama, Sew organizes and hosts this a couple of times each year.  It’s a fun way to discover some new blogs and shops.  Settle in with a warm, tasty beverage of your choice and do a little exploring.

GiveawayDay

For those of you who’ve never visited before, I’ve been blogging here at Crafty Staci for a while now, and love sharing simple, original tutorials and a few recipes. You can see all of my previous tutorials here, and recipes here. If you’d like to keep up with my adventures, you can subscribe over there in the side bar. ——————->

I have an Etsy shop and play around a bit on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. In between all that, I make stuff.

Last year, I gave away one of my Ninja Monkey Bags.  This time, in addition to a handmade item (visit my other post today for that giveaway – it’s not a bag!), I wanted to give you something to encourage your own creativity.  After all, that was my motivation for starting this blog in the first place.

Here’s what the winner will receive:  five lovely fabric fat quarters, a half yard of my favorite iron-on interfacing, a 7 inch white zipper, a spool of white thread, pink flower buttons and a blue butterfly button.

GAD May 2012 supplies 1

There are billions of fat quarter projects out there if you need a little motivation.  In fact, I recently spent a week focused on fat quarters, so there’s plenty here to get you started.

To enter to win everything here, just leave me a comment.  It doesn’t have to be long, I’d just appreciate something that will add to the quality of my day.  The giveaway will remain open until 5 pm, PST on Friday, May 25th. After that, I’ll randomly choose a winner (who I’ll notify by email, so make sure yours is linked to your comment somehow). International readers are welcome to enter. Every one of your countries is on my bucket list.

I appreciate all of you, both old and new readers! Be sure to check out my other giveaway and all the other great blogs and shops playing along this week!

  6. I really need to win this! =) I love sewing and making all kinds of things for our home. I am just now finishing up some oilcloth place mats. I made the oilcloth, too. What fun! I did find out that it is probably best to make your item, before you make it into oilcloth. =) It doesn’t sew real well when it is already made into the oilcloth.

  13. Something to add to the quality of your day, you say? Well… you’re precious, important, remembered, cared-for, safe, loved… you’re unexpectedly wonderful, a treasure, a joy, and your heart is open to those around you. You see things with fresh eyes and see the best in people. You’re kindness is like sunshine in the morning – a warm reminder of good things ahead. You hate looking back at the past because you’d much rather be joyful about the present and the future. So many people are encouraged by your presence – even down to the smile you give the clerk at the grocery store. You take time to stop and pet the dog you pass at the park… you celebrate the little things. You see that life is made up of little moments, and you have a unique ability to treasure each one. God is madly in love with you because He’s fascinated by who you are, even though He made you. He’s set you in motion and loves being part of your life – the center of your delight, the joy in your step, the ability to get up again after heartache. You’re like Him in that way – indomitable but so gentle and kind. Blessed to encounter you, and may your toes sing as you twirl through your day!

  14. A little giggle to add quality to to your day: A tour bus driver is driving with a bus load of seniors down a highway when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady. She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up.
    After about 15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.
    She repeats this gesture about five more times. When she is about to hand him another batch again he asks the little old lady, ‘Why don’t you eat the peanuts yourself?’ ‘We can’t chew them because we’ve no teeth’, she replied.
    The puzzled driver asks, ‘Why do you buy them then?’
    The old lady replied, ‘We just love the chocolate around them.’

    p.s great giveaway. Nicely put together . . . and so is your website. LoVe LOve LovE!!

  122. Thanks for the chance! I had a lovely moment the other day when I was sitting on the couch with the first quilt I ever made over my knees – my 20 month old daughter climbed up next to me lifted the quilt to sit next to me and put the quilt back over her and gave me a “tuddle”. Not sure if that story added to your quality of the day but it sure did for me!

  142. I’ll share something that added to the quality of my day yesterday. My 9 year old son put a rubber snake in my bed on my husband’s side. I saw him do it, but then my husband didn’t go to sleep for hours, so I was the only witness to his yelp and jump. The image still makes me giggle today! But my son better watch out, one day, my husband will return the favor. Thanks for the chance to win those lovely, inspiring supplies!

  145. Today in class, I had my students working while I finished up some paperwork at my desk. About 15 minutes in (which is about how long their attention span is), I start to hear some noises. I glance around to see what is going on. One of my boys, who had gotten up to get a drink, was walking back to his seat Steve Urkle style. He had tucked in his shirt and hiked up his shorts. I giggled and thinking my class needed a quick giggle break, grabbed my sunglasses to complete the look! The whole class busted out laughing.

  151. Sweet giveaway! They are doing roadwork – putting a new surface on- the highway I drive to work. Yesterday morning I came up to the work zone. There was a line of vehicles: four or five dumptrucks full of gravel, several water trucks, three or four rollers, a tar machine. They were all parked on the side and there were eight to ten workers out on the road, sweeping it with push brooms. It was very funny. I’m sure there is a point, that it is some part of the process, but why would you need to sweep a road prior to watering, tarring and gravelling it? :)

  153. I have been spending some quality time with my husband building a deck from our back patio to our pool. He tells me what to do, I forget what he says and change the plans. Many long discussions and revisions have been made many times. And that is usually in the first hour! Needless to say, we have been working on the deck for 10 days!

My friend saw one that was in my handbag last week and insisted I show her all the ones in my bag. It turns out there were ten different ones, all with different things in them!

If the crowds in big city Tokyo and Osaka start getting to you, I’m on Awaji Island and I can go an entire day without seeing another person (besides my family, of course). You wouldn’t believe I’m in Japan! After living in Tokyo and Nagoya for years, it’s so relaxing to be in the country.

As for something to brighten your day, hows this: As a huge baseball fan, and a resident of the greatest baseball city in the U.S., (St. Louis, Cardinal Nation, for those of you international folks), so anyway, last night at the Cards vs. Phillies game at Busch Stadium, a guy ran onto the field just before the start of the 7th inning. Not just some guy, a NAKED ONE!! The number of flashes popping from the crowd was hysterical! And the cheers when the security tried to capture him and he got away was priceless! So anyway, just thought I pass that along, for a little chuckle!
