Sew Mama Sew's May Giveaway Day


Sew Mama Sew is hosting another giveaway day at their blog beginning tomorrow at 9am. I just love giveaways, and plan on joining in. Since I will be busy getting kids to school and won't have time to post tomorrow morning, I am going to go ahead and begin my giveaway tonight!

To win one of my custom camera straps, all you have to do is visit my etsy shop and browse through my items and let me know which strap you would love to win. That's it! You have until May 31 to comment and then I will use an online random number generator to choose the winner!

lizzie's market totes :: now in the shop

lizzie's market tote :: happy tree

My 14-year-old daughter has been working diligently to make these bags to raise money for an upcoming marching band trip to march in the Fiesta Bowl Parade in December. I promised her if they were up to my quality standards, I would list them in my etsy shop and let her sell them there. She has done an outstanding job and wanted to let you all know they are listed in my shop. I am helping her with the applique on the totes and she is constructing them.

They are terrific book bags, grocery/market totes, and pool bags for those of you who always tote your stuff back and forth to the pool in the summer. You could get one for each of your kids so they can carry their own stuff. We can make virtually any applique, so if you have a particular thing in mind, please ask! Think...initial, name, an applique for a favorite hobby, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Every purchase will help her get one step closer to her goal and I know she will be so excited to see people buy them. We are going to be working hard to get more in the shop, along with some zippered pouches to match.
