MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

Last week, over on my Family Blog, I posted pictures of a purse I had made. My inspiration for the purse came from my Mom. She had made me two of this style, and was kind enough to also send me the pattern.

I went right out and bought some fabric to try to make one myself. I had SOOO much fun making it, that I thought it might be nice if I made one to give away as a kind of "Grand Opening" gift for this new blog.

So here it is...




It's made of 100% cotton (that has been pre-washed), so it's washable. It has ties on the side for adjustability. The inside has great little organizational pockets for all your important necessities , and it has a removable bottom, which is also washable (just remove cardboard insert).

Don't you just LOVE the color combo, and what can I say about that Button? Isn't it just to die for?

Well, I don't want any of you to die for it, but if any of you would like to win it, here's what you need to do to enter the Giveaway:
1. PLEASE leave me a Comment!!
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY
2. Become a FOLLOWER of this blog.

Wow, thats it!! Just two simple things. How hard could that be?

You can enter up till Midnight Saturday, July 17th, and I will announce the winner on Sunday, July 18th. Be sure to do both steps.

Good Luck, and Thank You for coming to my Grand Opening.

Thank you to all of you for your interest in my giveaway. I am very excited to announce the winner this weekend. However, it looks like some of you might be eliminated because you didn't follow both steps. I have 21 comments but only 16 followers. Be sure you have also become a follower of this blog so that you're not eliminated from the drawing.
