Day 12 Giveaway! What did you think you missed something?


My 12 days hit a train wreck this week!
Here's pics of what I did Mon & Tues! (hint: for some reason it's not sewing... hmmm.)
Pretty huh!

Yup, we had a surprise wedding this weekend! That I was lucky enough to be able to help plan and execute!
I have to say I'm pretty proud of this cake! It can definitely be improved upon but I think it came out pretty well. It was my first time using gum paste to make flowers. It was so fun!

Well that's what was happening early this week, instead of sewing,
but I have to show you the ball pattern that I still want to make for my little boy.
Yeah, definitely still want to make it :)
And don't you love the fabric combo used on Tadaa Studio's grab ball?!

It's adorable! I may be digging out a little more midwest modern!
It was going to be day 10 but seeing how that didn't work out, do you think there's still time?
It's not Christmas day yet. :D And only a few parties between here and there.

Next year when there isn't a wedding the week of christmas I'm definitely making those!

Anyway, Since you've made it this far in my wordy blog, I'll reward you!
(Do you feel like your reading one of those infomercial websites yet :) )

I said giveaway and I meant it!
How do 3 half yard cuts of Heather Ross sound... Merry Christmas to you, huh! hehe :)
I love many things Heather Ross and Far far away was no different.
I picked these up at market and now I'm sharing a few with you!
Included is the frog prince,
A wildflower piece,
And what far far away grouping would be complete without something as magical as a unicorn?
I also decided to throw in a couple of my leftover pieces of Anna Griffin's gorgeous Riley prints!
Hurray! Can you say bonus!
What do you do?
As expected comment to be entered & blog about this to get 3 extra entries!
Don't forget to come back and tell me so I can give you credit!
This will be open until the 31st I'll announce the winner sometime in the first week of January! Ooo, it's happy New year presents too! Yay!
One last thing, please make sure I have a way to contact you! Either leave your email or make sure you're not a no-reply (sometimes it happens and you don't even know it).

So, tell me, is it worth it to you for some way cute
free Heather Ross and Anna Griffin?

Merry Christmas everyone! And a Happy New Year!
