Practically Perfect giveaway.

I had to. I couldn't stand it. This flower popped into the creative brain while enjoying Mary Poppins with the kids, and it wouldn't leave me alone. I had to put it somewhere so I could focus...on the lovely chimney sweep who makes my heart start beatin' like a big brass band. Seriously, I love Dick Van Dyke.

So here it is. A product of a craft manic and the longest word you ever heard. And I'd like to give it to someone.


You can take the tie off, if you want. And I can embroider your name on it. Or word, or number, or initials, or URL, whatever. I was going to embroider the words practically perfect in every way next to the flower, but I figured you might want a choice.

Leave a comment, and we'll pick a name randomly next Friday morning. September 12. I have to leave it open for a week so as to give all my 20 readers a chance to see the post. I'm a weekly read.

Oh hey, spread the word. The more the Mary-er. Oh gosh. Hilarous. I'm on a roll, kids.

So cute! Count me in :)

Becky said...

I don't own a bag besides my backpack. No purse. No fannypack. I'm lame. Oh, the thought of being trendy and having something others will envy! I wonder if I could do something sneaky to increase my chances??? "Hey Trent...Come here! Wake-up! Sleep is for babies."

trenton said...

Hi, I like the bag and someone else I know would like it also. This is seriously Trent.
And to prove it... remember when my mom fell asleep while driving your gray van and hit a pole on the side of the road way back in the day? See, it's me. :0)
Back to bed now.

Natalie said...

I may make enemies since I won the last giveaway, but I cannot resist. I'm in, People!

wonder woman said...

STEP IN TIME!!!! I heart Dick Van Dyke. Bye Bye Birdie, Chitty Chitty Bang-Bang.....I was raised on the good stuff.

I always feel like my purse is Mary Poppins' bag. There is SO MUCH junk in there, yet I can never find what I'm looking for.

And I love the "practically perfect in every way" you want to put on there.

I think you sound precocious.

Mama Cher, Ok, fine, it's Sharon said...

Yes please! I never win, but always try...

Kay said...

I have a true addiction to Calico! I too, fall into the never win a thing catagory, but I'm going to try my luck. Count me in! Kay, you know, Conan's Mom. Does that pull any weight? Tell Andy I'll give him a BAG of candy if he draws my name! I can stoop lower if I need to, after all, I did use Kacie as a human sheild during the water fight. :)

Sheila said...

Actually...
everything you make is 'practically perfect' I love em all... and for this reason I am here leaving a [hopeful] comment.
I read Becky's comment and felt bad... NO bag except for a backpack. Now there is someone that needs a Calico. creation.

Calico Cally-
I'd love to be added to your P.P.G. Your bag is really "super-cally"...
Love your blog too!

Beeswax said...

I'm gonna need that bag.

Thanks in advance for giving it to me.

I read somewhere that being aggressive helps you get what you want. Is it working?

DailyFamily said...

Friend of Lori's...wouldn't mind havin' it. Cute, cute.

amber said...

I am so addicted to Calico I actually take my purse everywhere I had to use it I could not wait until my cruise. Adding this to my collection would make it PRACTICALLY PERFECT!!! HEEEHEE. Luv you

ShabbyInTheCity said...

You ARE on a roll! That bag is a must have ;)

wendypg said...

OK - - ENOUGH - YOU SAID YOU'D CHOOSE ON SEPT. 12----WELL THAT IS MY BIRTHDAY ---SO SORRY EVERYONE ELSE, I think that should just seal the baggie deal. (besides I'm your favorite aunty)

Bamamoma said...

"Baby Eden" is my baby. Your bag and flower are so cute and you are so creative. It obviously runs in your family.

Anonymous said...

If you could just put "King of all things Puerto Rico" That would be fine.

The flower looks a little like corn anyway. The button could be sugar - Can I get a few 10 buildings on the other side with a "Nice try grasshopper" for the other participants of the game. It could be my travel bag for the game. How cute!

cally said...

Brian, you're not funny.

My corn coffee strategy will kick your butt one day and then you'll cry yourself to sleep for two weeks too long and then have nightmares about mary poopins stealing your man purse. then Dick Van Dyke will dance on your little victory point.

Glad you like the bag. Thanks.

cassy said...

ME! ME!! ME!!! MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEME!!!!

me?

Elizabeth said...

I am ALL OVER free stuff...especially when it is so yummy cute!

JULIE said...

you need to stop giving these bags away-they are too good! How about an auction next time you have a bag that you feel the need to get rid of? But, in any case, I want that bag!

susan said...

Susie here, (Katie's friend in Staten Island) usually don't do this kind of stuff, but I thought I would press my luck. The bag's too cute to have too much pride. Big fan of your blog!

heather a. said...

of course i want it! And i am a daily reader. is that ok to admit?

The Jensen Family said...

Cally! Hi! I saw that you are giving away bags on Corrie's blog!! You crafty girl!! Pick me! Pick me!
P.S. Your family is adorable!

a wynn wynn situation said...

SOOOO cute!
When I think of Dick Van Dyke I think about my friends TV that corrected inappropriate language in the sub titles and it introduced the show as the "Jerk Van Lesbian Show" :)

Donna said...

Pick me! My Birthday is the 13th!!!

Katy Beth said...

Did you really have to ask? Of course I want it! Count me in as well! :o)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

That is so cute...and I'm glad we are going to be fast friends now!!! So I definitely need the "friend" look over when you consider who to give it away to! :) Unless you are doing the random integer thing...in which, I won't win because those things have something against me :)

The Ball Team said...

Cally - I would love to sport your artwork - it's better than jumping into chalk drawings!

Alice Wills Gold said...

Cally is pulling out the big guns and surpasses me on the comments!

I am WAY too cheap to give anything away to earn comments.

But, hey, I can't make anything near as good as you can.

Pick me anyway..one of my girls would love this bag.

And, you know they deserve it.

And so do I because I have got to be reponsible for at LEAST half of these comments, and that is BEFORE I will link you on my blog. :)

I wish you millions of commenters!

Alice Wills Gold said...

Oh, and I can't believe that you didn't play the movie game and make us work for it.

Does this comment put my name in the pick pot twice?

cally said...

No alice, but you can still guess a movie.

Lindsey Rose said...

I hope I win, I hope I win, I hope I win, I hope I win, I hope I win, I hope I win! Hey it worked for the little engine right!? Soo cute! Call me so we can get together and plan our alone dates!

devri said...

Wow, love it, you really did it during the perfect movie- how rude..hee hee

I want it to be mine..

Amy Niebuhr said...

Can't you imagine one of your famous creations all the way in KOREA!! Pick me and I will show it to all the Korean folks and they will want to copy it and make them for cheaper than your price!! I don't know how they would do cheaper than free, but they would!! You can be world famous.

One of Tyler's favorite movies is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! We've tried to get Lily to watch it and like it but she hasn't gone for it yet! Tyler cries!!

Karena said...

I love your crafts, I wish that I was more creative, but we all have our own talents, right?? Thanks to my sister Sheila who let me know about your site. Win or not (keeping my fingers crossed) I think your site is wonderful!

If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.

This bag reminds me of Dr. Seuss...I know, it's a bit far out there, but that's what I thought of when I came across this bag. It is beautiful & fun!

andrea said...

This would be the perfect bag for Chickie's ballet and tap shoes!

LOVE this cute adorable pretty darn perfect bag, so you know I had to be comment number 51!!

Heather A said...

Sheesh, people, quit telling your friends! My daughter's plain ole canvas bag looked pretty sad today as we headed off to the library. Not even close to practically perfect. I wouldn't let her have this one though. If I win it's mine, all mine!

April said...

This is the cutest bag I have ever seen! Pick me! Pick me! Such a cute give away.

The Osborne Family said...

I am a total stalker of your blog! I am amazed at the cool stuff you create! I have gotten so many ideas from reading your blog--the prayers by kitchen timer, fridge lock, picnik photo editor, etc. You are one cool mama! And, I love the bag!-----Katie's friend Kristen

Adamzes said...

I guess it's worth a shot. I sure love winning Super-Cally-Craft-deliciousness. That was terrible.
What a talent!
