Advent/Giveaway Day


It's here! The advent calendar is up (and the first day's treats are long eaten), Santa has been visited and Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day is here!

So, here's how it goes: Sew Mama Sew has a giant list of blogs participating in giveaways of handmade items and craft supplies (or will by tomorrow morning) and I'm happy to participate. All you have to do is comment on this post before end of day December 6. On the morning of December 7 I will randomly choose a winner and ship off the gift. This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Please make sure I can get a hold of you when you comment -- either leave your blog information or email address in your comment.


And what do you win? A vintage tea towel apron like the one pictured above. It won't be the exact one pictured (that one is for purchase in the shop), but it will be just as nice. I promise.

So please, comment, let me know who you are and if you're a regular reader or if you found the blog through the Sew Mama Sew List. And check out the other giveaways! I know I will.
