My Merry Messy Life: A Crafter's Dream Giveaway #ACraftersDream

I’m so excited to bring y’all the monumentally HUGE A Crafter’s Dream Christmas Giveaway! I’m so excited to be joining My Merry Messy Life, Earning-My-Cape and Tutus & Tea Parties for this Christmas, crafting, and supporting small business theme! Each blogger is offering her/his own giveaway worth $25 or more going on now through Sunday, November 4, 2012 {you are going to need that much time to enter them all!}. With more than 50 bloggers offering giveaways on their blogs this is one fantastic giveaway!

Christmas is just around the corner, and the time to start crafting our gifts for friends and family is now! Some of the blogs in the giveaway group will be giving away some awesome crafting supplies!

I love to be able to give handmade gifts for Christmas. However there are times that there just isn’t enough time. This is a great opportunity to support small businesses and shops who offer handmade items! Some of the blogs in our giveaway group will be highlighting such small businesses and offering giveaway items for them, as well. Even if you don’t win the giveaway, we hope that you will keep these small businesses in mind when shopping for that perfect gift for your special someone.

I was lucky enough to team up with Roxana of RoMa’s Musings.

My name is Roxana, I am a stay at home mom of three beautiful children. My interest in jewelry started in high school when I took an Intro to Jewelry & Metals class, but the only things I ever sold were items I made for the Art Club’s jewelry sale. Usually whatever I made ended up being given away as gifts. In college I studied photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Needless to say somewhere along the way life took over and I let my passion for creativity take a backseat. So with the encouragement of my wonderful husband I dug out some of my old beading stuff, got to work, and opened an Etsy shop.  

While he was encouraging me I was encouraging my mom, Margaret, to do something with all the extra fabric she has. So she is also joining me on this adventure.

I used to joke that my mother was born under a sewing machine. When someone says “that’s in their blood” that is literally the case with my mom and sewing. She, like her mother and grandmother before her, has mastered the craft with over 45 years of “sewing time” under her belt. Having studied Furniture Design in Zakopane, Poland she took easily to sewing home fashions, window treatments, slip covers, etc. Her talent is beyond words!

And last but not least… is my lil sis, Corinna.  A college student/certified nurses assistant by day and craft crazy girl by night.  She especially loves to sew and crochet… I think it gives her mind a good break from studying. 😉  

RoMa’s Musings… one mom, two daughters creating together.  Let us design something special for you!

They are kind enough to offer not only one, but two giveaways for you lucky readers.  

Prize #1:

Handmade IPAD Sleeve ($21.95 retail)

Handmade from a red/beige paisley floral pattern with red banding around the edge.  Button closure keeps your IPAD tucked safely away while 2 front pockets give you easy access to your phone, IPOD, earbuds, or a pen.  
Dimensions 9″ x 10.5″, inside lined in a red quilted fabric, spot cleaning recommended.  
INCLUDING a $5.00 Hobby Lobby gift card.

Prize #2:

Keepsake Custom Photo Scrabble Tile Bracelet ($42.95 retail)

Create your favorite photos into a lasting treasure!  Select up to 6 photos on 6 tiles.  Each photo will be put on a Scrabble Tile letter of your choice.  Every image is sized and carefully applied to each tile and finished with a glaze.  Pick your favorite color for the Swarovski crystals to go in between the tiles or tell me the month/birthstone for each tile.  6 tiles would yield approximately a 7 1/2″ bracelet.  Fewer than 6 tiles, I will work with you to select some natural stones in your favorite color just as the example shows (beads shown are sky blue quartz).  Lobster clasp closure is silver plated.  Please indicate finished size you will need.  A photo of the layout would be sent for approval prior to final assembly so that adjustments/corrections could be made.  Please allow 2 weeks for fabrication upon receipt of the photos.

Now you can hop from blog to blog entering as many giveaways as you want!
There are over 50 more blogs with giveaways going on during the same time all with prize packs worth $25 {some of them a lot more} go enter as many as you can.
