A Handmade Giveaway

This Giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered!

Here it is! This is my handmade giveaway. I love to share with the world in many different ways. And I thought it would be a lot of fun to participate in this giveaway with a few things that I have made.



Shopping Bag with Pouch

 First is this Shopping Bag. I loved this fabric from the moment I saw it. I have been wanting to make re-usable shopping bags for a while now, so I finally broke down and bought a pattern and some fabric and went for it. I have been very pleased with the results. I have only made a few so far, but plan on making many more in the future. This bag comes with its own little pouch to store it in when not in use. When you are using the bag, the pouch clips onto the side of the bag so you don’t loose it!



Bluebird of Love

 Second is the little Bluebird of Love. This cute little guy is one of the many needle felted creatures I have created. He is only a couple inches long, so he makes a great little pocket pet, or would be a great company sitting in a special spot.



A Cozy Hat

 Third is a hat that I recently made. I love the color of this yarn, the gentle shading effect. This one should be hand washed and laid flat to dry. I hope it can bring warmth to you or someone you love. There is nothing better than a handmade hat on a chilly winter day! Well maybe accompanied by a cup of warm coco.



Boxed Set of Cards

 And last but not least is a set of five cards. Each card has a different image of a bird in flight. These beautiful photographs were taken by my significant other, Bernie. The humming bird you see in this photo is one of the cards, but I will leave the identity of the other four a surprise for who ever wins this package! They are all stunning, and capture the personality of the bird. These are blank greeting cards, so that you can fill them with your loving thoughts and best wishes to family and friends.

I hope who ever wins this little package is filled with as much joy receiving it as I will have by giving it! To enter please leave a comment on this post telling me something that you love to do. Please enter only once, so that everyone has an equal chance. The deadline for entering this giveaway will be at 12:00am PST Saturday January 31st. I will pick the winner at random and contact them that weekend. This giveaway is open to everyone. Please be sure to include your e-mail in your entry so that I am able to reach you if you are the winner. If I can not get a hold of the winner by February 7th, I have the right to randomly pick another winner.

  18. I love to spend time with my 2 daughters and my granddaughter.
    Thanks for the fab giveaway!! We are great fans of hummingbirds and consider them our “family bird” as my grandparents always had hummers, and we’ve all carried on the tradition of feeding them.
    Take care and have a good week!

  19. What an impressive batch of homemade goodies! The reusable shopping bag is such a terrific idea.

    I love spending time out in my garden – especially amongst my many herbs. Just brushing through them and inhaling the varied scrumptuous scents makes me thoroughly happy.

  20. I love to sit in my chair and cross stitch whilst watching a great show on television. I have a toddler and this is how I like to relax at the end of a busy day!

  21. I love to walk and walk, getting the chance to once a day see or hear something beautiful, a spiders web all frosty, a bird feeding, sunlight through trees, even rain.
    I always feel more intune with the world.

    Thanks for your kind giveaway, some lovely gifts for the winner!

  22. I love photography – both shooting (as you can see on my blog) and looking at the work of others, and I love that you’re doing a handmade giveaway. It makes it a lot more special.

  23. I like to bake. These goodies you put together are wonderful! I have been meaning to sew a shopping bag. The fabric you chose is beautful. You and your husband have so many talents!

  24. I enjoy sitting back and watching a movie after my daughter goes to bed. It’s like “ME” time, but doesn’t always happen when there are chores to do around the house

  25. I love to get creative. Some days its sewing some days paper crafting some days attempting to take nice pics.
    I love the little bluebird. Something I’ve found is I have very little talent in is knitting/crocheting. So go you!

  26. What an absolutely adorable package of items. You are so talented- we would LOVE to win these little treasures!!

  27. I love that cute little felted bird! I’m always impressed with anyone that can needle felt!

    Hmm my favorite thing to do? I really enjoy waking up Saturday morning, no alarm blaring of course. My husband sound asleep {though probably snoring} and my baby girl sleeping {again snoring lol} next to our bed. It’s one of the best feelings in the world.

  28. you are so talented! i like to sew but i don’t do it very much. i rally need to take a sewing class! i must find the time! i love the purse you made!

    thanks for the chance to win!

    blessings ~

  29. Those are all such great things!

    Something that I love — I love to bring a smile to someone….so I like to bake cookies for our neighbors or make a couple meals (and freeze them) to give to our elderly neighbor who lost his wife a year ago. It just feels good to make people smile.

  30. I’m so impressed! You’ve got a great giveaway. Something I especially love to do is to get some quiet time away at a coffee shop. A good book, a warm drink, and some peace! I always return rejuvenated.

  31. What beautiful crafty goodies!!! I love to listen to my six year old, who has recently learned to read. I am thrilled to watch her enjoy books as much as I do.

    Thanks for the giveaway! foxsquirrelrabbit at gmail dot com

  32. I love spending time with my little boys. I also love to scrapbook and decorate my house. I have the perfect spot for that little bluebird. Thanks!


  33. I love birds, but I can’t have any because I’m allergic to feathrs. I do watch them out of my window. I think the Meadow Lark is my favorite because of the beautiful song it sings in the spring. Count me in, I’d love to win. Good luck to all.

  34. Wow – I love your handmade goodies. What a wonderful giveaway.

    I love to scrapbook, listen to my kids giggle, read…

    Thanks for the chance to win this lovely giveaway. 🙂

  35. I love sitting in front of the fire with a big cup-o-joe and my soft blanket and sock monkey slippers on reading a Stephen King novel. Best of all it will be snowing or a spooky storm with thunder and lighting with the winds blowing. Ok, ok, so I do get carried away.

  36. I love to take a candlelit bubble bath after I put my 2 boys to bed. It is the most relaxing part of my day and makes falling alsleep so much easier.

  37. This is a little more something I did as a kid, but if I still lived on the farm I would do it. I love to dig holes like in a garden area, fill them with water and sit there with my feet dangling in the hole on a hot summer day 🙂

  38. I love knitting. I have been seriously knitting for a year now and it helps keep me from being bored. Plus, I get awesome hand knitted things that I made. I love your knitted hat and the shopping bag!

  39. The bag is GORGEOUS!! I love the fabric!!

    Something I love to do… READ! I think I could read all day if there weren’t so many other things that I had to do.

  40. very generous giveaway package, thank you! Something I love to do is read, curl up on a cold day under my heated throw (since I don’t have a fireplace!) and relax a bit. It gives me some time to spend alone, and a break from the demands of motherhood and being a wife…

  41. I love camping and hiking. I didnt get to do much of either last year because I was pregnant. I cant wait to take my son this year!

  42. I love going for hikes in the canyon behind my apartment. It’s so peaceful and I can finally hear myself think!
    Thanks for this!

  43. I love the things you have made! The bag – beautiful (too nice for the store? nah, I’ll make it work!) 🙂 The little bird – adorable! The hat – love the yarn! And the cards are great – did you take the pics too??!

    Anyway, I love to crochet and make hand-stamped cards. Oh, and blogging is a creative outlet for me as well!

    Thanks for a neat giveaway! 🙂

  44. Oh my! I just love this giveaway…not only do I just love that bag, but the bird is adorable (I LOVE birds) and the hat and cards are so great! I love watching a movie at home with my husband or having dinner with girlfriends from high school!

  45. What a wonderful giveaway. I’m doing a handmade one also. I hope you’ll stop by. One of my favorite things to do is curl up on the couch to read while my children practice piano or guitar. It just fills me with such contentment.

  46. I love to read. I don’t get to do it often enough, but I really love to do it. Thanks for the chance – I absolutely love the goodies you are offering. iclipalso(at)yahoo(dot)com

  47. I love to get my fingers on my piano again. It’s been so long since I played her because I had a baby recently, and you know how time and attention consuming baby is. Oh, and my piano name’s Gertrude. She is a standing black Yamaha.

  48. Lately my favourite thing to do is to sit with children and sing songs. I clap with my youngest (10 months) and listen as my oldest (three years) struggles with the words or skips over the ones he doesn’t know. My favourite is when he combines two songs together. I could do that all afternoon.

  49. You are so creative and did a beautiful job. I wish I could sew .I am in amazment with people creating beautiful items . Thanks for the awesome giveaway,count me in

  50. Wow! This is incredibly generous! So many beautiful items! I love to make things, too! I scrapbook, make cards, and do paper crafting of all kinds!!!

  51. I l love to read and listen to books on tape. What a neat selection of prizes Thanks so much for the lovely give-oh-way! audrajjensen (at) msn (dot) com

  52. Such beautiful giveaways! I love to sit at the end of my day & count my blessings, the wonderful things that have happened each day, no matter how small *ruthie*

  53. I love starting the day with a cup of tea and a bit from whatever I’m reading at the time. It’s nice to have some time for me before another busy day starts, plus unlike my neglected knitting, which I love but simply don’t have the time for right now, it takes little concentration and set up–ten minutes and I’m good. Thanks for the giveaway, I really love the little bluebird of happiness!

  54. My favorite thing to do at the moment is couponing. I spend alot of time planning out my meals and searching through ads and checking coupons and making list. Thanks.

  55. Wow, an amazing giveaway. I love handmade things! That fabric on the bag, total swoon. 🙂

    My passion is counted cross-stitch. These days, it’s done in stolen minutes with a toddler running around, but that makes what I finish all the more precious. I love to give my stitching as gifts.

    Thanks, Kiy

  56. i love to go tothe park with my husband and sit by the river and watch the boats go by. We live a very relaxing existence.

  57. I love cuddling with my little boys and reading books. Thanks for the great giveaway!
    P.S. I’ve got a giveaway on my blog as well, feel free to check it out!

  58. I love to watch old seasons of Stargate SG-1 on DVD with my husband. We rarely go to bed at night without watching at least one. 🙂

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  59. I also love curling up with a cup of tea and a book 😛 I see that is a popular choice so I will also include the fact that I love to mold chocolate wafers into lollipops… I sometimes do this for bake sales for women’s shelters.

  60. In the warmer months, I love to take my grandson out for walks in the woods. It is wonderful to see nature thru his curious eyes

  61. You are so creative….what lovely items :O) I enjoy making hair bows from my daughter and all the special little girls in my life. thanks for the chance to win!

  62. i love all these things! i would definitely have a lot of joy opening this package from you. You are very talented in your crafting. 🙂

    right now, i spend my free moments reading. But I mostly just love to spend time with my 7 1/2 month daughter – she is at the funnest age where she is learning so many new things!

  63. I love all your work! I would love to learn to knit. Right now what I love to do is take pictures. I love my digital camera because I can just take pictures anywhere. It is so great having the opportunity to capture a moment in time. Thank you for the great giveaway. You are very talented. The little bird is gorgeous!


    Kelly 🙂

  64. I love handmade items. It’s like sending a little love.

    What do I love to do. Wow, it’s not good that I can’t think of much that I genuinely love to do. I love spending time with people I love.

  65. I love to sit outside and read while my dog runs around and plays (or swims) and just has a great time–she only really has fun if someone ‘watches’ her 🙂

  66. I knew when I was nine that I would come to Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands and 40 years later I made it. I am so passionate about this place and its people and cultures. l love to learn and sharing what I have learned. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with others.

    “Live simply so others may simply live.”

  67. Gardening is my joy when possible (in Ohio)…in winter I love to read. My dog is with me inside or outside, he sleeps in the sun when I am in the yard,…or on a dryer-warmed blanket when I’m reading!
