I won a Giveaway!!

I know you all enter those Giveaways and wonder who really wins them???  Well, I did, and not only 1 but 2 different Giveaways!!   Yes, I won 2 times and you might as well say I won 4 times, since both giveaways had 2 prizes!!

No, I didn't win a Kitchen Aid or a really cool camera but I did win 4 fabulous gifts from 3 different bloggers.

The first gift I won was from One Krieger Chick for a custom made frame with my choice of coloring and monogram.  I chose a light gray theme and the letter "N".  I was definitely not disappointed when it arrived!!

In addition, this giveaway was offering the Reese handbag from Elle Elyse.

The bag is beautiful and so perfect for Spring.  I love the belted detail. The print pattern is on one side of the bag and the mustard color faux leather is on the other side.  Unique surprise! 


I find it to be roomy and with nice pockets inside for my cell phone and pocket camera. 

Thank You!! Thank You!!!

The second giveaway was hosted by Get Your Crap Together.  
How exciting to have won again!!

This time I won 2 patterns of my choice from the Get Your Crap Together Etsy StoreI chose the Tiny Fabric Totes Pattern and the Kid Friendly Apron Pattern.  Both patterns (and more) are available for sale on in the Etsy Store for only $5 each!!!

These are my versions of the pattern.  The totes are a bit bigger than I thought they would be from the pictures in the Etsy store.  I was happy about that since I wasn't quite sure what I would put in really small ones!! 

I chose 3 different fabrics for the different sizes and used the same pink for the linings for all.  They were easy to make and fast to put together.  Since I was rushing a bit when I made them, I forgot to put the interfacing in the large Black and White tote.  I was too lazy to take it apart so I continued without it.  You can tell in the picture that it isn't quite as stiff as the others....

The Kids Apron Pattern was also another easy pattern to make.  I had some trouble following the pocket part of the pattern, but I used my common sense of sewing to figure it out....Again, I am happy with the result and I'm sure I can find a little young lady that would love to wear this!!

Thank You, Thank You and Thank You to One Krieger Chick, Elle Elyse and Get Your Crap Together!
