The Big 200 Giveaway is Over!

 
Posted by Picasa


Thanks ever-so, friends for being such.
So glad am I to be a blogging girl, I am willing to give up my crafty independence for a few days and let you chose what I make.
To enter the giveaway leave a comment telling me what you want. It can be anything you've seen here or in real life, if I know you in real life.
Now, there are a few things I'm not willing to recreate and send away, For example, if you asked for this or this


I would answer with a resounding no.
Anything that I spent more than six hours on is out. I realize that my blog entries do not include time spent on projects, so just try to guess and if you pick something I'm not willing to do, I'll let you know.
I am allowing multiple entries per person as long as each entry is requesting a different item. For example if you ask six times for a baby harness, I'm going to throw out five of those requests. I won't set a limit on how many times you can enter unless it gets crazy.
Go ahead and dig through my archive to see what you want. If you're just happening by, feel free to join in. Lurking? This is the perfect time to make yourself known.
Stagger me with a response people. If I'm not staggered, I may retreat into myself and hide in shame.


Wow, this is fun! I am loving reading all the requests/entries. I've even drummed up a comment from my dear brother Boy who despite nearly being my most faithful reader, second only to The Mr, has never left evidence of having been here at all.
I've got to say though Boy, I hope your satchel is not the winning project. I am fairly new to the world of applique and your friendship-bonded animal trio would uncomfortably stretch my meager skill.
Anywhoo, I guess I have to close this little contest at some point but I'm still having fun taking entries so I'll hold off another day yet.
Thanks for playing everybody, you've made my week-end!


Ahh, fantastic. I was staggered and will not have to hide in shame.
I'll announce the winner tomorrow. I am selecting randomly so I still don't know what my next project will be. Weird.

I would like you to make me a shirt that says "Superman Wears Mr. Pajamas" but use my real name.

sphinx63 said...

I would like a new apron, the kind that covers the front of your shirt too, as I'm always spilling stuff on me. Or, if that's too hard, a baby sling for my neighbor, who is having her first baby soon! Thanks, this is very generous of you!

jamirclark said...

Congratulations on your 200th post! I will get in on the action, believe me! I too, would love an apron that covers the front of my shirt as I am a very messy cook who ends up wearing my kitchen creations every where I go. (can I throw in that if I win, I will provide you with a kitchen creation?)

Faasuamanu and Melinda Toilolo said...

I would also like to rewuest an apron.. since you taught me to cook, but not to be clean about it. I feel it only fitting

Faasuamanu and Melinda Toilolo said...

speaking of can you give me the resipie for "bens favorite cassorole" i am starving and that sounds yummy!!

Faasuamanu and Melinda Toilolo said...

I also would like to "bid" for a baby changing clutch.. I am thinking it would be swell for a certain sister who is prego...

Faasuamanu and Melinda Toilolo said...

and finally I would like to request your services to make my second childs blessing dress assuming they would be the type to wear a dress.

Kakes said...

I would be the luckiest girl if I could have this:

For my birthday at the end of August!

quitecontrary1977 said...

You're kidding? you are amazing! well, I'd like a first Halloween costume for my daughter in about an 18 month old size. I'm thinking Snow White, maybe.

quitecontrary1977 said...

I'd also like some one to play designer for me and make me a mini-tunic dress.. just very basic.I feel like I'm making wishes on a star. This is fun!

Melissa M. said...

I've often daydreamed about having such a cute purse that others would swoon. I know you could be the one to make that happen, so that is my selfish wish.

Barefoot Cassandra said...

I want you to make me a skirt.

Barefoot Cassandra said...

I want you to make me guacamole (I don't know if this is in a post, but it sounds fun to sit with you and eat. Perhaps in a park with lots of children playing, and a large jar of peanut butter by our sides...)

Barefoot Cassandra said...

I would cry with joy if you made me anything be-jeweled.

torinem said...

Congrats on your 200th post! There are a ton of things are your site that I would love! My first request would be for a reading pillow. Such a nifty idea!

torinem said...

One of the crocheted owl hats would be super fun!

torinem said...

A doll for my little girl would be awesome!

torinem said...

I love the diaper wallet! That would be awesome!

Melissa M. said...

A tote is different than a purse, so I am not cheating here when I say I would love a pretty tote that I could use on Sundays.
Even if the Mr. doesn't win, you have to make that shirt, hilarious!

Rae said...

Ooh this is fun. Ok, I'd like one of those adorable elephant pillows! (doesn't need to be made of old blankie...(:)

Rae said...

Also I would love to have one of those cute little boy rompers for my baby!

Happy 200!!!!

And thanks so much for the slipper info. You know I noticed when I cut out the pattern that it was DEFINITELY way too small...so it wasn't just your H's copying deficiencies. I think I'm just going to trace around the pattern a 1/2 inch or so and see if that works. Since I'm large-footed and have therefore maxed out the pattern size-wise as it is...sigh.

Boy said...

I am in need of a satchel in the which to carry a lunch or a dinner or a snack or an assortment of pebbles or a list that takes up several pages or a pair of finger nail clippers. On it I would like a picture of an octopus, a penguin, and a koala bear who are best friends.

Boy said...

Alternatively how terrific would it be to have matching owl hats for myself and the young Boy-cub?

samsakara said...

Congrats on your 200th post! I would love a cute Snazzy Quilted Diaper Wallet in boy colors. My friend is having her first child and this would be perfect for her.

Mommy's Home!! said...

My Sweet-t-Pea would LOVE an elephant pillow!! Congratulations on reaching 200 :-)

Anissa said...

You have some really cute things! I'd love an owl (or any other critter) hat for my son:)

Barefoot Cassandra said...

Can I have the pillow book holder too??

TonyaKuykendall said...

I am a very new reader. How exciting. You share many of the same passions I have, only you actually get to do them. I'd love to learn to crochet.

Anyway.. I'd love a diaper wallet for my little cowboy.

TonyaKuykendall said...

I would also love to have a harness for my little cowboy... as he's 19 months old and has recently discovered that it is fun to run away from Mommy. Scary in this world.

Oh how fun. Thanks so much for this opportunity.

TonyaKuykendall said...

Oh, the more I look the more I love. I'm so loving the reading pillow too.

TonyaKuykendall said...

OK, I'm officially a fan and will be sending a link to your blog to everyone I know.

I would love it if you could make a blanket for my little cowboy to take to daycare with him. Only has to be big enough to cover him on his cot.

TonyaKuykendall said...

It would be awesome if you could make him a little pillowcase to go on his little pillow we are sending him to daycare with. I could email you a picture to do an iron transfer on it... I don't know. One of those Mommy and Daddy love you gifts.

TonyaKuykendall said...

I'm with Melissa M on the tote for church. Maybe a scripture case for a quad, and a seperate zipper for the RS lesson manual... and on the front a pouch for kleenex that can be pulled out of the side... something every LDS woman needs. You and I can become rich making these... call me.

BTW, barefoot Cassandra is too funny. Do you make good guacamole?

Annie said...

Gasp!! So many entries!!! Look at how popular you are!!

Okay, here are mine:

I would like a baby doll for my baby girl. (She turns one in a month!!)

Annie said...

I would like an apron, of the fabulous retro style.

Annie said...

I would like a matching apron for my baby girl, although not at her current one year old size. More for when she's three or so.

Annie said...

A quiet book for sacrament meeting. Don't know if you've ever made one, and it would probably take longer than six hours, but I'd REALLY love one. You know, the kind with zippers and buttons and ties and all that. I've thought of attempting to make one myself, BUT you are so much more talented than I!

Annie said...

A tote like the one you made for your foster baby.

Annie said...

And, like everyone else, a diaper wallet, now that I'm down to ONE kid in diapers. Woo hoo!

Annie said...

PS: Happy 200! Love ya!

(And I'm glad I got in before you closed the contest!)

jamirclark said...

I would love a tote bag.

jamirclark said...

I also need a new skirt- you make very cute, nice skirts!

jamirclark said...

Oooh. How about a cute little hat to cover up mu obscene hairdo?

jamirclark said...

Could you make me a nice little EASY (very simple) dress for Tyli? She seems to grow out of hers too fast!

jamirclark said...

Do you make little girl hair bows? I would LOVE some! (I actually don't even own one with my 19 month old little girl! What kind of mother am I?)

jamirclark said...

What about little girl bracelets? Come on- I know you can!

Timothy Sternberg said...

I would like you to make me a shirt.
