monster friends givey.

And in honor of Monday being almost over, I'd like to celebrate. by giving you something. Again.

I know. Overkill. Enough with the giveaways. You'd think I could write something actually insightful or introspective or something. But let's. face. facts. I have a problem.

Instead of a giveaway, I'd like to call it a Cally has an addiction to making stuff and neglects all things housework to do so, so you should cash in on her weaknesses and get free stuff while you can because her boys are going to need clean underwear like yesterday, opportunity. NOw that is totally catchy.

Seriously. I love it. And I love them...




Leave a comment, and they're both yours. Oh, but hold the phone Burt Healey, that's not all!


THat's right. I went hog crazy. uh, that would be wild. The laundry is so completely overwhelming that I ignored it for not only 2 whole monster lives, but a bag too. I can't have a neglect all day without a bag. t'would be like Disney without the Imagination Movers. Not nearly as satisfying.

Oh yes. Believe it sisters. You get two monster friends, and a suh-weet ride for them to cruise around town in. You will totally need their help picking out fresh produce. They got your back. Pals.

And you can name them whatever you want. Because You. Are. Special.

So leave a comment before midnight Thursday, October 2nd. feed my givey-ness. It surely must come to an end, post haste.

Oh, and I will SOO embroider a name or a sweet sentiment on their back sides, if you wanna. Like HunnyBuns. Or Billy JEan's Not My Lover. That's a popular one.

OH, and if you link to it, I'll give you a double entry. Because I believe in bribery.

Shamon.

I want in on this giveaway!!

chantal said...

Cally. You know how much I love that heart fabric. I must have this stuff. The monsters are too cute for words. I love. I want. Please.

MiaKatia said...

Is there a way I can beg and plead you into letting me win this one ;) Those monsters have to be the cutest things ever and who doesn't love a beautiful bag!!! Count me in.

Megan said...

I've linked for a second chance!

Shellie said...

those are the most coolest things I have ever seen. so cute. I love it.

Alice Wills Gold said...

Oh, I just love these little guys.

And it's such a bummer that I have won a giveaway before because it lessons my chances at this one.

I don't even have boys, but my girls will love these guys.

And my guy will love this bag...for his office, that is.

And, I am so going to make LG come and enter the giveaway.

P.S. I would have linked without the bribe.

P.P.S. LG may have to start his own blog and link too so that he can get his share chance at the win.

You are the best....when are we going to get together...we need to do it soon.

Mimaw said...

oops, see how bad I am, (please read the comment on the oreos)- see I'm so pathetic, I so need this give-away, because i get confused and my never have the chance to win anything this great again

SPACEY T said...

Hey, there Cally! I love this give away, so much so that I posted a linky on my blog! Those cute little monster critters so want to come home to me!

Macy said...

I'm here via Cassy's blog. Does that give her another entry? I'm so glad I dropped by. Such cute stuff!

CalicoDaisy said...

I'll take that bribery and the tote, too, please. Very cute set. -- Michele

Becky said...

I know my luck isn't good enough for two in a row, but I'm gonna try it! They are so cute. Maybe they'll help me make it up to my OTHER nieces and nephews, no use only spoiling just one (but the bag stays with ME)!!!

P.S. You are beyond creative. Who needs clean laundry? Social norms such as hygeine are TOTALLY overrated...

P.S.S. Your linked...

My two girls would each love a monster, feel free to pick us! Thanks. :)

Amy Niebuhr said...

I WANT THEM!!!!! How stinkin' cute! And it would be just perfect for my 2 little kids. What a great honor to give Cade, our newly adopted son, his first stuffed....monster!! I WANT THEM!! And the bag. You are amazing.

Rita said...

I want them bad....so bad....really, really bad....

*that was my Michael Jackson reference in case you didn't catch it* (and darn it now that song will be STUCK in my head all day....shamon)

Okay, his name is Adrian and he's my husband.

Just pulling your chain!

Cynthia said...

Okay, cally, I have posted about this.

That was me using mind control on you.

Tannie Datwyler said...

I just found your website linked off my friend Jessie's (who found it linked off of someone else - you are a hit I believe!!) I'd love to win the giveaway. you have amazningly crafty and cute things. I am NOT a crafty girl, but I LOVE to have wonderful things.

I have a 2 year old girl, and I'm soon to have a baby boy (in another month) they would both LOVE these awesome monsters.

PICK ME :)

Oh yeah, I'm linking, so count me in for two.

Misty said...

Oh my...These are adorable! This is the first time I have ever seen your blog. I am putting a link to it on my blog right after I post this! So...don't forget to double me entries! Thanks so much for this offer!

MERRIANNE said...

Beeswax said...

Billy jean! Ah well, too late for that on my bag!

I got it Friday, just in time for movie date night! (Ghost Town!)

It is sooo darling! Thank you thank you thank you!

I'll post a pic of the two of us in the next couple of days.

Mikki said...

Oh my goodness! Your bags are fantastic!!
Everytime I see someone else's bags, I get just a little more discouraged. :o( Mine aren't nearly as good. Oh well!! Practice, practice, practice.
Please enter me in your sweet giveaway. I came to you via Merrianne by the way.

joey said...

I am Katy Beth's husband. I want to win the bag so I can wear it around and make her jealous. JK. I'd let her use it too.

Soosie said...

I just wanna thank spacey t for directing me to all this delightful chaos wrapped in a blog. I just spent the last hour trying not to think of how sick I am(with a little baby in my tummy) and laughed more than I have laughed in weeks! Your blog is a gift from above! I will gladly procrastinate to read it any day! And I love the monsters by the way! My five year old son would be in heaven with those. The most darling things ever! However, I think they belong to spacey t, my awesome sister in law! I may just have to get the price for your diaper bags as well....scrumptious!

Katy Beth said...

See Alice, it is good to have a husband with a blog! :P

Laura said...

Totally want these... I am linking you too! Thanks!

The P*dunc's said...

count me in. it's good to know that I am not the only one that neglects house work to make stuff.

Erin said...

I LOVE those! They are so cute! Pick me! I am linking to you, but my blog's private so you won't be able to see it.. But I promise I will.

Me plus 3 Hecks said...

Wow. I am overwhelmed with the # of comments! Of course, this booty definitely deserves it (by that, I mean what you have to give, not "this booty" as in my own--though that's true too!), but I think I liked it better when you were not as well known. Think I had more of a sporting chance then. Here's hoping! I will link right now!

Katie Stacey said...

Those are so cute! This is my first time looking at your blog and I love it. I'll be coming back for sure!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

You know in Shrek where donkey jumps up and down and shouts "OH, pick me! Pink me!" Yep, that's me at my keyboard.
I'll be having a giveaway next week so come visit.

susan said...

I got two live monsters that would match so well with those. And I can already envision the outfit that I will wear to church when I premier that bag. Still a fan of your blog!!

Kelly Anderson said...

I want in too!! Those monsters are soooo stinkin' cute!!!

Lindsey Rose said...

Okay how absolutely darling can you get??? Soo cute!! I for sure want this, I am going to meditate really hard on October 3rd and hope that my mind games will help you pick me! Count me in for two, I am linking! Also, this week won't work for me for the kid trade off, but next week would be GREAT! Lets plan on it!

Adelle and Cord said...

Darling Darling. I am a friend of Lindsay Rose and she is smart enough to put a link on her blog to get two entries!!!
You are so talented. I downloaded the picture of your watercolor owls like two months ago because I thought it was so cute. I just keep it on my desktop and look at it every once in awhile because it makes me smile. Don't worry, I won't print it and sell it or anything...although you should!!

Anyway, Adelle wants the monster bag. Count me in for a link too.

emmapaige said...

ok you need to charge when does your store open? just love you, what the heck is link? not very computer smart!!!

Cherstin said...

I'll be linking you! You are my favorite! I need those for my boys and the bag I need so Natalie and I could match! Love you!

The Osborne Family said...

This give-away is perfect for me! I have 2 of the cutest little monsters at home who are turning 2 next week! So, your little monsters would be a great birthday treat + mommy deserves a super special bag! I'm linkin! Pick me! Pick me!

Elizabeth said...

I'm in! And I'm linkin' ya!

On a totally UNRELATED thought...how do you delete comments from another person's blog?

=)

Yo Mamma said...

Instead of putting my name in, will you please put in Jaime? She's had a lousy week and could really use them, and I know that she would love them all. Plus, I linked, so I guess that gives me two entries for JAIME. But i guess that you could say I'm entering myself and giving it to Jaime and then Jaime is entering. So, that's more like 3 entries for her. Come on, give it up. Do my other links count?

Kara said...

Count me in too! You are super creative!

The Coatney's said...

pick me. i really need a pick me up

Marcie said...

Becky, my little sis, introduced me to your blog a while back and I never dared enter for a freebie since I thought is was more for family and friends. Forget that. These fellas are too cute to pass up.
Put me in twice because you are linked to me!
PS- Thans for yor blog. I get a chuckle out of reading it.

Trav and Alli Barnett said...

Count me in!! Katie told me all about it and I love your stuff!

Jarrett Family said...

I love those little monsters!! I came about your blog via Lindsey Rose. You have great stuff!! I would love to win them!

Georgi Family said...

I am some stranger from Utah....thats right, you heard it, UTAH!! I think your little calico's deserve a long awaited trip out here to utah. In fact, when they arrive to utah I will take them on a site seeing tour and take picture of them at all of these attractions. Temple, park city, jazz games, lagoon, etc. and post these pictures on my blog for everyone to see. oh, and I guess I am not totally a stranger, I am lindsey rose's sister-in-law. Count me in twice cause I am a linkin' it up. PICK ME BABY!!!

Camille said...

They look like they'd fit in perfectly with my family! :) I've been looking for a perfect gift for the two kiddos. I love it!

Jarrett Family said...

And you bribed me I'm linking you too!!

innisfam said...

way cute, I know my son would love to slobber on these.

Teresa Johnson said...

Ok, so I'm not high-tech enough to know what linking is, so I guess I must settle for the one entry...boo hoo! Cute as always! You are amazing!

Ticey said...

Oh my gosh how cute are those!! I love little monster things and so does my son. And what a fun bag to put them in!! You are very talented. Thanks for doing this give away, we'll cross our fingers :)

jenny said...

Those are SO cute! I'll take one. I don't know where you're located, but I'm in Chicago. Even if I only got a pattern to make one, that would be neat too.

Great creativity!

Barnes Family said...

So cute! I have come to your blog so many times (from Lori's, she's the one I know) but was too embarrassed to enter a give away. Well, i'm afraid those days are over. sorry to all you real friends out there.

Barnes Family said...

remember me the stranger who just left a comment and entered your contest? I just linked you on my blog!

gilian said...

Calico,
Breanne and Janey love surprises from their gramma and these delightful monster friends will be loved and cherished.
And even though Breanne and Janey's mom, Jessie, will be drooling for the bag (almost like Janey, who is pushing through her first tooth), I think it will simply have to stay at my house to hold the surprises I find for the girls.
Thanks in advance! (Sorry, but one exclamation mark is my limit.)
Gilian

Robyn said...

Adamzes said...

It looks like your blogging ship has come in! Over 100 comments? Time to get a nanny and a maid and open that store full time. I linked ya. Even if I don't win, I just like looking and drooling. Oh, I just realized this could function as my new diaper bag and new baby and big brother gifts. It's perfect!

Vanessa said...

I'm entering because of a link on a friends blog. And I must tell you that I am the least crafty person on the planet (the only thing that adorned the walls of my home for the past two years was a Wayne Gretzky poster)...but I LOVE these, and NEED them. And that's why I should win. Thank you for your time!

Lila said...

i love what you do. it is beautiful, fun and creative. i would love to have time to explore the talent. smile.

Jeanne_2008 said...

Very very cute and I linked yoU!

Caryn Doman said...

I know I am too late for the drawing, but I had to say Hi. Holly cow are you ever popular or is it just cause you are giving something away? You are so creative, it makes me sad just thinking how NOT creative I am. The little monsters are so cute, but hey, I just want a diaper bag for my cute little Doman baby (hint hint hint)
