SewMamaSew Giveaway Day - December 12 - 16, 2011


This year, I am offering up two prizes to win. The awesome people who run SewMamaSew coordinated all of the  blog writers who want to giveaway cool items and you can enter as many as you have the stamina for.

I have the snap purse (on the left) in black & red plaid. It snaps open with a unique closure and snaps back shut. Lined with red plaid, this little purse can hold art supplies, a CD,  cosmetics, or gold coins. It measures about 6" wide x 5" high.
This snap purse comes with a "Letters To Santa CD - A holiday Musical Collection" , published by the USPS, compiled by Gregg Field
Really - you have a complete gift here, the holiday CD which fits perfectly in the snap purse- a great gift to keep or give!
The second small purse snaps shut (with a snap this time) and will hold a small sewing kit, business cards or gold coins as well. This purse is about 4"w x 3"high. Featuring some organic bamboo fabrics as well as quilt cottons, it's a darn cute small purse.





Rules are simple: It starts Monday, December 12 and ends Friday, December 16th, 2011 at 5pm PST.
Enter my giveaway by leaving a comment:


 I have two prizes to give away, so in the comment form, let me know your preference and your favorite Christmas Carol.
My annual "What's Your Favorite Christmas Carol?" survey is probably important only to me but I will share the results Saturday on my "We Have Two Winners" blog post on Saturday.




Giveaway is open to everyone - I don't mind shipping internationally as well as domestic.
If it is domestic, the USPS should be able to get the item to you before Christmas.

***{If you haven't enabled your e-mail to show (behind the scenes), you might leave your email in this format: your email(at)wherever(dot)com}


If you feel the need to follow me on Blogger, or like me on Facebook, you can do that too. I prefer to grow my blog organically so I just need your comment to enter this giveaway.

I will tally up the favorite Christmas Carol responses and let you know the winner sometime Saturday. Winner to be chosen by my randomness.




Go look at all the other cool blogs and see what people are making.



For those who are here visiting, my hobbies include sewing and crafting as well as anything airplanes. I live in Oregon, currently own five sewing machines (why not?), and named this blog after my dog, Rocket, who was a total character, rambling around,  letting me use him as a model. He passed on this last October and is sorely missed. His buddy, Rusty, isn't about to allow me to wrap a scarf around his neck and likes to stay home with his people.

I like to try projects, learn what I can, then move on. It's difficult for me to make 36 of anything so you will see a bunch of eclectic creations here as well as really beautiful biplanes and lovely flowers. You can see my etsy store here.
