Giveaway Day!

Well I’m sure the majority of you reading this post today have found me from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day but for those of you who aren’t… it’s Giveaway Day!
Today I am giving away one Summertime Buttercup Bag.  I made two of these up recently and one went into my etsy shop and one I am saving for a lucky winner!
So here are the rules…
1. Leave me a comment!  You can just say hi, or if you feel up to it, tell me your favorite thing about summertime!  I love summer for so many reasons so I’d love to hear just what exactly you love about it too.
2. For a second chance to win, become a fan of my facebook page then comment again telling me you did!  (if you are already a fan, great!  Just let me know)
3. I will ship only to Canada and the US (sorry everyone else)
4. Contest closes May 20th at midnight my time.  (mountain time zone)

5. I’ll pick the winner with a random number generator.

6. I’ll ship the bag out by the end of the week!

7. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you!

So thanks for dropping by and I’d love to have you check out my shop too!  If you love this bag and don’t win it, like I mentioned before it is for sale!  I have plenty more of this fabric too so if it sells, I am more than happy to do up a custom order just for you!

    …I love to wake up to the birds singing outside my window in the morning and working in my vegetable and flower garden. Going to the beach almost every day and bbq, bbq, bbq. Then finishing the day out on the deck and watching the sunset.
    I’m a fan of course, and another wicked bag! And did I mention how much I LOVE the diaper bag!!!!!

  2. Meg

    My favourite things about summer are CAMPING (especially when I get to go with my sister & her fam – does that get me suck up points?!), not working, sunshine, and gardening.

  3. Kara

    My favourite thing about summer is warm air and sunshine on bare skin. And then there are many, many more things I love about summer too.

    The bag is beautiful! I don’t want to win because I want someone who doesn’t already have one of your awesome bags to win it. So if it picks my number, just do it again. :)

  4. Lindsey

    My favourite thing about summer has always been camping…. This year I have a feeling that baby’s arrival will be the highlight though 😉 LOVE the bag…

  5. ashley

    i like camping and fishing and sunshine and baseball and warmth and fires and late walks and going to work when the sun is out and coming home and the sun is out and visiting friends and road trips and oh so many things! :)

  6. Katie

    Summertime is my favorite time of year, spending time outdoors. I love cooking out on a grassy yard, preferably with a river or ocean nearby.

  7. Lora

    so cute! i’d love to win.
    my favorite thing about summertime is that my hubby is home more (he’s a schoolteacher). :)

  8. Shelly

    My favourite thing about summer are warm summer evenings – nothing better than going for a walk, sitting in a backyard or around a fire when it’s warm and still a bit light outside, smelling like grass and flowers.

    And like Kara said, let someone who doesn’t have your bag win it! I just wanted to participate. Plus I want to work with you on a black one. : )

  9. Miriam

    My favourite things about summer are camping, the beach, bonfires, and being able to go outside without putting 16 articles of clothing on first.
    And I’m a fan on FB.
    I know I bought a bag very similar to this, but it was stolen! :( So I’d be thrilled to win a new one because I loved it. I got lots of compliments on it, too, and the receptionist at my dentist’s office asked for the name of your etsy site. :)

  10. DenaMarieAppletree

    I love summer because I get to go swimming, and hang around on the hammock, and have cookouts, and go outside without six layers of clothing, and wear flipflops, and garden. But especially I love the swimming.

    i adore this bag. about summertime–honestly, in the desert, i kind of hate summertime. so my favorite thing is the monsoon season, when it rains like crazy. although i also like it when the nightblooming cereus (a cactus with gorgeous, huge fluted white flowers) blooms–blossoms open at night and they are so fragrant and glowy.

    thanks for the chance to win!

  34. Nanbon44

    I love the shape of this bag! The colors are nice as well. My favorite thing about summer is no school as I am a SAHM of four children and am currently homeschooling my 7 and 4 year old. Even teachers need summer breaks, right?

  38. rosemeg

    Thanks for the giveaway. There’s something about this particular stripy fabric that feels almost retro — in a good way — makes me think of my momma when I was little. My favorite thing about summer is the fruits and veggies at the highest heat times. So luscious!

  39. mandy

  41. Stormy Days

    Wow, I love that bag, so beautiful. Summer, what’s not to love, everyone seems to relax a little, maybe from the magic of child hood and those endless summers, or maybe it’s the heat which just makes us slow down. I love it all. Thanks.

  42. Chelsey

    What a lovely bag! My favourite thing about summer is spending time with my family doing fun things! Camping, water parks, road trips… Thanks for the giveaway.

    My fav things about summer… would be going to the nature – beach, mountain etc. And barbie!

  45. Susie

    Really lovely bag! I’m one of the odds ones that actually prefers winter to summer – however, I LOVE being barefoot in the sand and spending long, quiet evenings outdoors on balmy summer nights. Oh, and I love summer rainstorms too! thanks so much!

    I love summer for reading on the porch swing…I do very little in the summer just so I can say I fully enjoyed the short season we have of it. Oh and it’s wonderful to stroll down to the garden and harvest something for supper…yum!
