Giveaway Extravaganza

Well, maybe it’s not an official extravaganza, I’ve just always wanted to say that.

I’m celebrating the fact that the etsy shop is officially up and running!
(With more goodies to be added there this week.)

This week I have THREE prizes in the offering. And I think they are rather good. I hope you will think so too!

Prize #1 is a collection of 7 Fat Quarters, plus one 1/4 yard panel from the retired American Jane Look and Learn collection.

Prize #2 is a collection of 30 blank 6″ x 6″ note cards made by American Crafts with cellophane envelopes.
(One of my dreams one day is to make my own cards, because I love the look of handmade cards, but right now I have to pick my focus and so I am very grateful to have good looking pre-made cards handy.)

Prize #3. One more chance to win a bundle of 45 vintage-inspired 3 1/2″ I-spy squares.
Here’s how it works. (I like keeping things simple.)
Leave a comment for one entry.

Last time, I purposely kept things small for those who have been following me for the past little while. This time I’m inviting you to spread the word.

So, you get additional entries for posting about it on your blog.
Leave an additional comment if you posted about it on your blog.

Add me as a follower (and leave another comment) and get a third entry.
(Those of you who were already followers get an extra entry too.)

Entries end Thursday, April 9 at midnight Mountain Daylight Time.

I will announce the winner Friday morning.
The first person picked, gets first choice.
Second person, picks second.
Third person gets the final prize.

Sound like fun? I hope so. Can’t wait to hear from you!
