Milestone--- Time for a Drawing!!

Hello fine blog friends and sistahs. I reached a milestone last night on my Etsy shop--300 items sold! Three is my favorite number, so we need to celebrate! Yeehaw :-) I've decided to do a drawing in honor of reaching this milestone--I'm going to put together a Goody Bag, filled with some of my stash of laces, ribbons, buttons, and what ever else I feel like adding!


You can enter by leaving me a comment here in this post--and if you don't have a blog or an Etsy shop, you will have to leave me some way to get ahold of you, in case you win!! The winner will be picked by random drawing (highly technical stuff, I will put all the names in a hat and have one of my kids draw a name!) on Sunday--August 12th. Good Luck!

I've put a few new things in my shop over the last couple days. There is this drawstring bag--made with some of the gorgeous fabric that I purchased to make my new curtains with! Isn't it pretty?!! I added some unbleached cotton to set off the print--and some gorgeous vintage ribbon lace, laced with a pale blue satin ribbon. Then I embroidered the word "AMORE" down on the bottom. Sweet. It's a pretty roomy bag too and would look great just hanging around holding some of your treasures!
Then I made a tissue holder to match--just cuz' the fabrics look so pretty together!
And here's another of my little "coasters for one"--I call her Prissy, not really sure why, but she looks like a Prissy to me! Cute and small and feminine. Hand stitched.

OK--well, I need to go and pack up some stuff for mailing today--yeah! So I'd better get a move on. Remember to leave a comment here so you can get in the drawing!

Have a great day!!

Do you like naming your items? I do, but sometimes a name comes quickly to me and then other times... I'm stumped!

Big congrats on the 300th sale - here's to many more to come!

Congrats, I am just in love with all of your creations! I am looking forward to the needle holder I purchased. I keep losing mine in my pin cushions. Yikes!

You are so talented and I'm sure you will reach the next 300 sales very quickly. Especially if someone hands me some extra money. ;-)

Don't know if you saw on my blog that I gave you a creative blog award? It's a couple posts down from the top now.
