Hooray for Handmade!

Did you take my advice and enter some giveaways on Sew Mama, Sew! 's May day of Giveaways??? If you did, chances are you won something! It took me some time, but I tried to visit every blog that participated and ended up winning 6 prizes!!! WOoot Wooot! Here are just a few of the handmade goodies I received...

This ADORABLE pleated purse came from Mary, on her blog, Life on 19th.
Mary's blog has all kinds of neat handmade ideas and a yummy looking homemade pretzel recipe you should check out this week!




Look at the hand-embroidered detail on this little pillow! So sweet! It came from Stephanie on her blog, Be Overjoyed. Stephanie has advice on ways to live abundantly through handmade, organic, etc.



Someone must have known that I needed new pillows at my house, because I also won this pretty linen pillow on Liz's blog, ollie*kate. Liz has a cute etsy shop and does all kinds of applique and sewing!


And, it was a delight to meet Brittney of B.Originals! She designs beautiful announcements and stationery and treated me to this set of 12 personalized notecards in my favorite colors! Visit her etsy shop, boriginals.etsy.com

I think you probably win the prize for most prizes won!! You are certainly an anomaly! Everyone I know (including myself) spent a full day, or two, entering every single giveaway, and all left empty handed! That's ok, it was fun to see so many cool blogs and handmade items- the world is full of creative people! And congrats on all the loot- how fun!!
