Giveaway Day!

Giveaway is now closed -- winner will be announced on Tuesday morning...

Edited -- for those who want to know how to make the napkins that I'm giving away, click on this link. Then scroll down the page a bit and you will find a list of a few tutorials. The napkins in my giveaway are made as a circle, but I've also made them using half-circles as well.


Today is Sew, Mama, Sew's giveaway day and I'm participating! They have a couple of lists on their blog of oodles of other bloggers who are also joining in the fun. Everyone on the lists is giving something away -- either something handmade or supplies for handmade gifts.


My giveaway is a couple of Christmas tree napkins (made by me) and a hand-carved Santacicle ornament made by my husband. And probably a couple of other surprise goodies (including maybe some fabric pieces of some sort) thrown in.

Here are my rules --

1) You must comment on this post and this post only (one comment per person);

2) You have until midnight (east coast time) December 6th to comment;

3) You must have a way for me to contact you either by having your profile set up with a link to your email or leave your email address in your comment. Those who have their profiles set up for "no reply" and who do not leave an alternate way for me to contact them will be disqualified. Don't miss out on winning a giveaway because of this;

4) I will ship internationally (this is fun -- my last winner was from Portugal!);

5) I will use a random number generator to pick a winner.

Now start commenting...and then go over to all the lists at Sew, Mama, Sew and comment on more giveaways!

Good luck!
