SMS Giveaway Day | Holiday 2010

SMS Giveaway Day

Today is Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! If this is your first time visiting my blog, welcome. And for all of my regular readers, I'm always happy to offer up some giveaway prizes to thank you for being such a wonderful support network for me.

Today, in the spirit of the season, I'm giving away some really fun holiday-themed prizes. Three different winners will each win one of the fabric-covered Moleskine journals pictured above. I made these with Kate Spain's wonderful "12 Days of Christmas" fabric using my favorite tutorial from the wise craft blog. I made these to feature the tutorial in the holiday issue of Fat Quarterly, and now I want the journals to come live with you!

Each journal will be paired with 3 fat quarters from Kate's line. I was planning on taking photos, but the weather gods have been less than cooperative. It's been raining here in North Carolina all weekend and I am WAY behind on my picture-taking. I'll update this post as soon as I can get some decent photos.


Edited to add ... here are some pictures of the three prizes:

Giveaway Day - Prize 1

Giveaway Day - Prize 2

Giveaway Day - Prize 3

I always do my giveaways the same old way: simply leave me a comment. That's it! Everyone has an equal opportunity to win. I'll leave the giveaway open until Friday, December 17th ... after which I will let Random.org select my winners. Good luck!

PLEASE NOTE: this giveaway has now ended. The winners will be posted shortly.

For more information about Giveaway Day and learn about all of the the other great prizes being given away all around the blogiverse, head on over to Sew Mama Sew!
