Giveaway Day!

Hey hey! It’s Giveaway Day! I’ve been slacking on blogging lately, but I’m excited to meet a lot of fellow bloggers and hopefully make some friends. If this is new to you, go check out the Sew Mama Sew blog to find hundreds more giveaways running this week!

Before I get to the goods, let me introduce myself! I’m Jamie, but I’ll also answer to Molly or Merri. I’m a US military wife and currently stay home with my daughter. I run an Etsy shop, do some freelance SEO writing, and am active in my unit FRG (that’s a military thing). I love doing artistic things, especially sewing and other textile arts, writing, and jewelry making. I’m a very lazy blogger, but I always do intend to write. πŸ™‚

Okay, enough about me. What am I giving away?!

alice pouch

It’s a lovely cosmetic pouch, featuring Alice-in-Wonderland themed fabric! It’s completely handmade and handsewn. The pattern is improvised to make the most of the scrap of fabric I had, so I hope you like it! (Christmas tree not included.)

I WILL ship internationally, so don’t hesitate! This giveaway will close on December 8, and I will contact the winner as soon as possible after that. The winner will have 2 days to respond or I will pick another winner.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment here on this post telling me something that you call a “favorite” (because Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite things)!
(Edit: Well, forget the Rafflecopter. Thanks to everyone who clicked over. Just leave a comment and I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner!

As a special bonus, those of you who make a purchase in my Etsy shop this week and drop by here to tell me will also receive a special surprise gift with their purchase! (Oh, and you might want to try using the code SHELLS for even more of a bonus!)
