My First Giveaway Contest!!! Win A Warrenton Market Tote




Hello fellow bloggers, I have decided to try my very first giveaway. I have been watching my fellow Etsians , bloggers and tweets giving many very cool and creative items away. I have never won anything, but it is fun to hope that you might. Plus you get to meet many new friends and new sites you might not have stumbled onto. In an effort to get all you creative people to take a second look at your local thrift shops, my giveaway is something I created from one of my resale shop adventures. I spotted two custom made curtain panels, fully lined and looking like they just came from the cleaners. They were huge and my mind went into overdrive as I salivated over these babies. The material was great, the colors were bright and I bought the two panels for $2.00 each!!! I fashioned 8 beautiful market tote bags out of one panel plus a fab craft apron to die for. All that from one panel! All you need to do to possibly win one of my totes is to leave a comment on my blog and follow me...that's it! I will have my husband randomly pick the winner on June 5, that gives everyone a week to check in. I wish you luck and look forward to hearing from many new friends. I will ship anywhere, so don't let your location stop you from trying. Have a great weekend and stay creative ;-)
