SMS Giveaway Day!

*This giveaway is closed. Congrats Jodi, number 222 - you're the winner! Jodi has been emailed.*

Welcome to Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! Too. much. fun. If you're stopping by, I know you're looking for the giveaway, so I won't bombard you with my customary mosaic of favorite projects - you can look around the blog if you're so inclined, though :) Right now, I'm leading a series/linky party on Sewing With Certainty - you can check out this post for more info.

http://www.sewmamasew.com/2013/12/giveaway-day-supply-giveaways-fabric-patterns-etc/


 
I'm destashing a bit and want to help others build up their green stash (though green is on its way out ;) ). 

From left to right: an older but always awesome print - Joel Dewberry's woodgrain (10.5" x 35"), a print from Ty Pennington's Impressions (15.5 x 20"), and a gorgeous bird print from Wrenly by Valorie Wells (full fat quarter - 18" x 22").  I also have a charm pack of Thomas Knauer's Asbury - so summery - you could make a cute table runner out of it if you are feeling cold right now! Lol. :)

Anyway, you have two chances to win:
1. Tell me about the best holiday surprise you ever had (any holiday - whether you were surprised or the surprisee). Mine was a snow on Christmas morning when I was 5. I expect this year's Christmas surprise will be even better - my husband and I will be surprising our nieces in Maine! They don't know we're coming! :D

2. If you're an old or new follower, just leave an extra comment. You can follow me on Bloglovin, Feedly, IG, Pinterest, whatever - just let me know! 

*The giveaway is open to anyone worldwide until 8pm EST on Fri., Dec. 13! I will choose a winner for all the loot via Mr. Random, and I will email you and update this post. If I get a no-reply winner without an email address, I will have to choose again. Please note that I will not be able to respond to all comments, though I usually do!

Thanks and have fun hopping! :) Here's the link to supplies, and here's the link to handmade goodies!

  11. The biggest surprise (it's hard to surprise me) was the year I got my first bicycle. A friend had one I loved and she would ride it over and share with me. One day she rode it around my house and my dad came out from behind the house riding her bicycle. Then SHE came out riding her bicycle right behind him. My dad was riding MY bicycle!

  24. My husband (been married over 30 years now) would surprise me-just cause-with amazing gorgeous jewelry-I was always totally surprised and just loved what he had made for me

    ReplyDelete
  25. I guess my best surprise was when my husband purposed a couple of days after xmas when I was at work. I worked/volunteered at a wildlife park, and he had arranged a big scavenger hunt...ended in the event barn, with a picnic he'd cooked himself, on the floor in front of the fireplace. Then we went for a walk, it was snowing, and he purposed at the wolf overlook gazebo (where we later got married, reception in the barn). It was pretty much his biggest act of romance ever...and we've been together almost 11 years (married 6.5).

  26. The Christmasses of my youth were always full of surprises. Can't remember one in particular. I do, however, remember one birthday when I was first married. My MIL gave me a freshly butchered chicken. Yes, I was surprised.

    ReplyDelete
  27. One year we were celebrating Christmas in Minnesota with family ( we live in Kansas). My daughter's then boyfriend surprised her by flying to MN on Christmas eve and proposed to her in front of the whole extended family. They have been married for ten years now and have three great kids.

  29. I think my favorite was the year we got my sister a rabbit. She had been begging for one forever, and then we had it locked in the bathroom for five days before Christmas, yet somehow she was completely stunned to find it sitting in the middle of the torn, discarded wrapping paper covering the floor Christmas morning. "It's a rabbit? Can I touch it? Can I hold it? IS IT FOR ME?"

  49. this was actually the best surprise I did for someone and it wasn't exactly a holiday. It was summer vacation though. I lived in alaska at the time and was unable to get home, New Jersey, too often. I planned, with my cousin, to fly in with my two young children and surprise my favorite aunt. We hid in the yard and when she came out we yelled "surprise". One word of caution, do make sure the person you are surprising like that is in good health :) She was.

    ReplyDelete

  54. My favorite Christmas surprise....or not really a surprise....I thought that my (now) husband was going to propose to me because he had been giving me little hints about my *small* and *meaningful* gift. Of course, I thought it was an engagement ring....turns out, it was a "message in a bottle" with a little note inside telling me he loved me....it was the most random gift ever! I (we) can laugh about it now. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. A Christmas surprise was we had heard a little kitty meowing in our basement window well, it was 1 degree above zero and we let him inside and he became such a wonderful companion, we named him whiskers and he lived 12 years. I loved that cat so!

  67. Beautiful giveaway, love the bird fabric. One Christmas when I was a kid we went on vacation. One night after dinner we were all out walking when we heard sleigh bells. All of us were so excited and ran back to our room as fast as we could. I remember trying to go to sleep as fast as I could for fear Santa would see us still awake and pass us up, hehe. It was ok as Santa did pay us a visit.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  77. Okay so...This is going to sound materialistic. When my husband and I first got together, his family did not like me one bit. We got married, and had zero support. He joined the military, and we lived off his low salary for a while, while I stayed at home with our daughter. We had nothing for the house except what we had when we got together, and what was already in our first apartment. So for our 2nd christmas together, to show my husband and I that they were wrong, my in laws bought us all kinds of kitchen and house stuff for christmas. The kind of stuff you get as wedding gifts and house warming gifts. It was so amazingly helpful, and such a great surprise. It was the beginning of a wonderful relationship with his family.

  78. My parents bought me a beautiful watercolour pencil set one year and disguised it by padding it out with junk mail and bubble wrap - I was stoked!

We were at the Christmas open house at then local quilt shop. And him and the shop dealer surprised me with it...And then I won the big giveaway prize which was a 2 minute grab as much as you can in the small shopping basket giveaway. between threads and embroidery design packs I won $1200.00 merchandise. It was a fabulous day. I was cloud nine for a very long time. One of the best days in my life.

  152. Best Christmas surprise: My husband took note of the poor needles and supplies I was using for the first few years of knitting and dyeing yarn. He ordered an interchangeable needle set along with some smaller dpns to round it out, a swift and ball winder, and some yarn! All by himself! That was 5 years ago, I think, and by far best ever surprise.

    Thanks for the chance. I read your letter to Pantone - I agree! Purple is lovely! (blue still rules though)

  156. The most recent was my embroidery machine. I had been dropping not so subtle hints to my hubby but I didn't think he was listening. Turns out he was :)

  159. My now husband, then date guy of 3 weeks, flew back from a trip to Spain to surprise me on my birthday. Good thing I didn't have another date guy around or my husband would now just be 'that other date guy'.
