tutorial fodder giveaway.

One more thing before I sign off for a couple weeks. Free stuff.

I've got all this tutorial stuff! We've got plenty of lunch sacks around here, so we don't need more. My hair is too short for scrunchies. And I've already got a diaper strap. So you guys can have it!!

Leave a comment, and everything pictured below is yours.




But seriously, I couldn't send it all naked to you, could I? So I made a bag. This bag has been in my head for a while, and I just couldn't contain it any longer. I love this bag. When I'm done all the other do quickly projects, I'm making myself one for Christmas.


So if your name is randomly drawn, this is what you get:

1 blue "LUNCH" oil cloth lunch sack
1 pink flower oil cloth lunch sack
6 scrunchies
1 diaper strap
and 1 cool vintage looking bag to put it all in.


Rules:
  • Leave a comment.
  • be nice. (no dirty words)
  • Link to this post (and let me know) for 2 entries.
  • Giveaway ends midnight Sunday, September 6.
  • I'll post the winner MONDAY SEPTEMBER 7.

Now I'm off to make noodles for lunch, grind some wheat, chalk a driveway, perfect my lightsaber skills, increase my iron saturation levels without taking pills, which means eat steak, sell a house, stalk the coupon queen until her powers sink into my soul, and finish the pile of unfinished.

It may take a while.

Yea first comment. Two small ones in diapers the strap is perfect, plus one is a boy and one is a girl; so the sack colors are ideal. It would be an awesome birthday present to me:) (September 6) Good luck with the long list.

Amanda said...

I put a link up, I hope I did it right. www.joyfulbirdie.blogspot.com. I hope your little Batman is feeling better; my silly boy just got tubes in and adenoid out. Sick little boys are no fun, but when they feel better life is good:)

Okay if this giveaway wasn't designed for me...I am growing out my hair, I love lunch (okay I love any meal-all food really) and gingham, I just had a baby and that bag is sosososososo cute! I have 100 totes but none that cute so please oh please pick my name!

Nana/Mom said...

Hi Cali, Awesome stuff, pick me. I check your bog everyday, for the smiles and the laughs.

LOVE your stuff-would love to have all the goodies. I have seriously been dreaming of a bag from you,(especially since I saw the one you made for Cherstin, it almost didn't make it back home with her at Christmas) and to get one with such good stuff.

Great Birthday present for me, so if Cherstin wins, just send'em to me....LOL.

No link to add to this, but I do seriously love what you do.

May the force be with you (whichever ones you may need)

Jeigh said...

I NEED those lunch bags, because Jenna just started school. And she NEEDS those scrunchies, because her hair is long enough. And I NEED that diaper strap, because I've been changing diapers for 7 years straight and it's getting boring. But most of all, I. NEED. That. Bag. I didn't know until I saw it, but I do. I need it.

Does this desperation count as two votes? No? OK, I'm linking, too.

Jenny said...

I Love everything that you're offering, I hope I get lucky!! Not quite sure if I understood all the rules but I’ll try to win anyway :)

Holly said...

I love catching up on your blog. Very cute bags!!!

Beth said...

First of all, I am loving everything up for grabs. Secondly, would you feel sorry for me if I told you that I am in love with the bag and that I had to carry a CORDUROY purse all summer because I couldn't find one I liked!!! I am about to link it up for another entry!!

Beth said...

You have been linked, so one more entry for me puh-lease!!

Sarah D said...

Count me in! :)

Cardell Family said...

Oh, wow! I would pack myself a lunch every day (even though I always eat at home) just so I could use that little lunch bag! And I would take that bag everywhere with me...maybe even to bed! =) I'm keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed for this one!

Cardell Family said...

P.S. I linked it on my blog. Now I'm crossing my ankles too.

DailyFamily said...

Sign me up too!

Kamie said...

Love love love the bag. Seriously wish you sold this stuff. My husband is probably glad you don't :)

I would love to win it. I always have a link to you on my blog, but did a post about your giveaway.

Elizabeth said...

Of course I'm entering...how could I NOT?!?! :) how are those light saber skills coming? :)

Elizabeth said...

Oh, yeah...I used one of your tutorials the other day. Carissa needed footless tights for dance class, and I couldn't find any small enough (and not too expensive... I'm so cheap!), so I bought a pair of regular tights and searched your blog for the post about the cute socks without feet and tried it out. So cute! Thank you! Of course, there is a hole in her new, cute, footless tights now. Right at her knee. Where she was picking at them all day. Because you can't wear your dance clothes for only the 30-minute dance class on the first day. Obviously. I think I'll have her wear them backward to hide the hole until I can find enough quarters to buy another pair. :)

joolee said...

Yeah! Count me in! Love, love all those goodies.

joolee said...

You're linky-linked to my blog,
richardsonshine.blogspot.com. Thanks for the chance to win!

Amber said...

Cally, I have a link up too, but I should mention that it's my birthday... and I'm having a new baby and need a diaper strap. I'm hoping that this influences fate so that I win! Heaven forbid I had to make one for myself!!!

PeanutPosh said...

I love your creative ideas. Everything is darling. I'm crossing my fingers that I win.

Alice Wills Gold said...

Cally,

I thought that maybe I got the coupon queen title, and then I realized you were talking about that lady in farragut. MAN!!

And to add salt to the wound, you've got 70 FREAKIN comments. I mean, seriously, who had a blog first??

I guess I will just have to be happy with being the friend to the blogging/creative queen of the world. My kingdom is small. I'm o.k. with it. Even if I am not the coupon queen either..I am just a princess.

So, I know I am not going to win your stuff, and everyone that reads my blog already reads yours...probably more faithfully than they do mine, but I might link, just so that I can get a better chance of winning.

i really need some scrunchies, not really, I left mine in the 80's. :)

Enjoy the fame your majesty.

Kris and Kally said...

three reasons for me to have your goodies!

1. My name is Kally too!
2. My birthday is Sept. 6
3. You are saved on my blog as "Cutest Bags Ever!"

:-)

Jenni M. said...

Pick me! Pick me!

Somer said...

Wow, I want a treat.

Stacey said...

Those lunch sacks are the cutest!

BTW, I found your site from a friend over here in Middle TN and noticed you are the SIL of a friend from our old ward in K-town. Very random :)

Elizabeth said...

OK, I dedicated a whole post on my blog just for you! I put THREE links to your blog in the post, so do I get three more entries? =) I copied some of your pix for the post. Do you mind?
