My 100th Post Giveaway!!

my new hat and a new cascade scarf

my "mesh" crocheted produce bag

Well, I finally made it to my 100th post! I've been sick with bronchitis for a month now, but I'm feeling a little better and wanted to have a giveaway for all my blogging friends.

I will run the giveaway until the 20th of Feb. Example of the tote bag above.

The rules are simple:
1.)Post a comment on here anywhere and you'll get an entry in the drawing. The more you comment, the more entries you get!
2.) Blog about my giveaway and you receive 2 entries!
See? I told you it was simple :)

The prize? Well, it's a handmade tote bag. You tell me in your comments what craft or crafts you do and I will personalize it for you. Whether you crochet, knit, make jewelry, decoupage, make soap, whatever! You won't be disappointed. The bag will be made from denim and have some pretty cool embellishments on it too! I will post a pic of an example for you to see.

Ok, so now on to the other stuff. I have bee making a few things since I've been sick. Passes the time and keeps me busy (when the kids aren't..lol). I've also celebrated my 40th birthday last Friday. Hubby threw me a surprise party and my friends and family were here. It was nice, but I was exhausted at the end of the night. Whew! Turning 40 is hard work :)

My daughter Samantha also celebrated her 21st birthday on the 25th and my youngest son Noah turned 8 on the 31st. My 7 year anniversary was on January 19th, so you can see that I've been busy this month, not to mention broke.....

Today, it's snowing and I have to get ready to go to work. I deliver food for a friend of mine when the school has no substitute work for me. It helps me make some extra money and keeps me busy. So I will post some pics of my recent creations and post a pic of what the giveaway tote bag will look like.

Have fun and Happy Crafting!!

Hi Tammy,
First I wanted to say how much I really love the long pink scarf. I can tell it's crochet and I might be able to make my own because I get the idea by looking. Your is georgeous!

Sorry you have been so sick. I know how that feels. I get it at about once a year...seems to last forever.

I have my little boy's outgrown jeans that I am saving. I wanted to make some small purses and yours is different and simple. I'd rather make one that looked more like a purse than a pair of pants...lol

Enter me in your giveawy please.

This commenting is new to me..I am happy to figure out how!

See you on MJ farmgirl,
