My First Giveaway!


I am so excited about this being my very first giveaway. At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to get into it, but it's just too much fun not to. I made this bag yesterday. It's called the "I'll Have One of Everything" Bag. The pattern is from the Seams to Me book by Anna Maria Horner. My b.f.f. from high school is making(and selling) these, and I fell in love.(Her website is modernmommysewing.blogspot.com) This was the "trial" bag to see if I wanted to start making these as diapers bags for gifts. And the answer is...YEE-AH! Love them! Of course it isn't a full size diaper bag, but it will do the trick. The dimensions are from tip to tip 19 1/2", and from strap to bottom 20". The straps are braided...it's hard to tell from the picture.
Now for the details...leave a comment. You don't have to be a "follower," but I would love it if you would:o) Leave a funny quote that you have heard recently or one that you always use...and keep it clean;o) I need a laugh. The winner will be announced on Monday February 1st...my 7th wedding anniversary:o)(yay for us!!) Now get to thinking, and post those quotes!!:o)...(open to U.S. residents only) This Giveaway is now Closed.

That is a pretty fantastic bag. With a little one on the way this would be a wonderful addition. Thanks for the great giveaway.

I love the bag. . .too cute!! I don't have too many funny sayings but my DD4 is FULL of them. One of my favorites is when a thunderstorm is coming she squeals and says "A yetzicane's coming, a yetzicane's coming!!!" (as in a hurricane) Here in Alabama, we don't see many hurricanes so I have NO idea where this comes from! Always gets a laugh out of us!

Great bag! It's the end of the day - I can't think of anything, let alone something funny. I should have watched The Big Bang Theory before posting a comment - that show is so funny.

love, love, love it!! fabric looks familiar... hmm.... ;)

favorite quote at the moment - when people comment about all the things I do when pregnant.... 'I'm pregnant, not terminally ill.' (Kevin no longer chides me for moving the ladder around the house. :) )

The bag is really cute. I'm trying to think of a funny quote. Here is one my dad always says because my husband is pretty short: "Better to have loved a short man than never to have loved a tall."

We always think it's pretty funny!

Cute bag! I'm enjoying your blog, especially b/c my favorite thing in the world is to repurpose my own or cheaply purchased stuff and make it into something great (at least to me!). I'm married with 2 kids and live outside Raleigh now.
Funny quote? When I needed a break I used to tell the hubs "If you need me, find someone else" as I went to take a bath. :) I was only half serious.
This isn't a quote but my almost 6 week old daughter just farted and woke herself up for a minute! It would NOT be funny if that had been the end of her nap.

Crystal, I love all of your projects you have posted. You're so creative and I appreciate you sharing your ideas with us.

A quote I like comes from Arnold H. Glasow: Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath.

Thanks for sharing!

Are you allowed to win the bag if you aren't a blogger? It is really cute. I like it.
