A Giveaway From The Hands!

1:12 AM

The past month or so, I've been thinking about a giveaway.  I love giveaways but they've been sparse around here lately.  So...when this opportunity came up, I knew it was for me to participate in, and I knew just what to offer.

I'm joining in with Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day!  By the way, if you haven't visited Sew Mama Sew's blog, you really should.  There's great stuff on there including patterns, giveaways, fabrics, and more!  So the guideline for the giveaway was that it must be something handmade or something that can be used to make a handmade item.  Well, I knew I could that!  So without further ado, I present to you...a handmade Texas giveaway!

giveaway items

cloths and rooibos

Since we are currently spending a significant amount of time in Texas, I picked up the towel bar several months ago to give away.  And what goes perfectly with a Texas towel bar?  A hand knit towel, 2 cloths, and rooibos soap from S. Africa!

To enter, please leave a comment on this post.  I will close the giveaway May 20th at 9 PM Central time and pick a winner via random.org.  Please make sure I have a way to contact you should you win, and unfortunately, because of the weight of the towel bar, I'm only able to ship to USA addresses.  Sorry about that, international friends!  (If you're international but have a US address I can ship to, then that's fine!)

Feel free to help spread the word about this giveaway and be sure to visit here to see other items participating in the giveaway.  I hear there are around 250 giveaways!  250 handmade giveaways!  Now that's exciting stuff!

This giveaway is now closed.  Winner will be contacted shortly...
