In a Giving Mood!

My goodness!
All this birthday gifting has certainly made me feel generous!
I have been blessed by wonderful friends and if you're reading this, I consider you a friend as well.
Here's the deal...
This week, I shall be making a bag from my Sweet Sharon birthday collection.
I want to give it to one of my blog readers!
All you have to do it leave a comment.
That comment will make you eligible for the bag drawing, to be held next Sunday.
That's it!
Leave a comment, (a favorable one might help!)

Happy Reading!

  1. WOW! Awesome idea!!! I love that you have so many God-given talents in the creativity department!! Really anything you make is AMAZING!
    Love you!
    P.s. Woo Hoo! First commentor

  2. Happy, Happy Day (or shall I say "month"?) to you! Not commenting for the purse giveaway, (although a Mama's Collection bag would certainly brighten my day), I've really just been meaning to wish you birthday happiness for some time. And now that I'm here, I have a question...I have a very favorite old sweater that I have worn a few years too many. It is very dear to my heart (was wearing it when hubby proposed!) and I can't bear the thought of just tossing it. Any ideas (and help?!) on what could become of it? I read a while ago that you made a beret out of one of your oldies but goodies...any chance I could get that pattern and/or help or guidance with something like that? There is no rush or time limit on this project...just would like to have something to wear from it by next November. Thank you, thank you. :)

  3. Kris! So good to hear from you! Hope things are well with you!
    RE your sweater....Of course we can 'repurpose' it! Love doing things like that! A beret is a good use, I think...! Some make fav sweaters into pillows, and of course, bags!
    You think about it and perhaps send it on with R when she comes at Thanksgiving...Once I see it, perhaps a 'vision' for it's next life will become clearer....
    Your name now goes in the pot for the drawing! Yay!!!
    So excited......:D

  4. What a neat idea! I'm a novice seamstress, so when I met R, I was instantly impressed by her handmade bag and baby accessories. I'm really glad she and I have become friends! I shared your blog with my mom, and I think it does a good job of motivating/inspiring our creative sides!
    Happy creating!

  5. Thank you!
    Any friend of R's is a friend of mine!
    Good luck on the drawing!

    Best wishes on all your sewing endeavors!


  6. BTW...This wonderful idea is TOTALLY R's!!! She's my idea girl! I just crank out the product and the words and she does the thinking for me....
    What a good mix that is, huh?!

  7. R does have an incredible ability to think things through. Her organizational methods are so awesome.

  8. I love the 012 "Sunshiny Birdie Sling"! (Next to my pink "Alex Bag" of course!! It gets lots of use!) :) Funny that I'm drawn to the Amy Butler bags...also cool that Rhiannon has a similar one!

  9. Sweet! I love seeing real-live Proverbs 31 women thriving on the web. Heading on over to Flickr right now.

  10. Alex, you're just an Amy Butler kind o' gal!!
    LOVE her fabrics! Her patterns are a bit of a challenge but really nice...

    And Barbara! Thank you for the kind words! Proverbs 31 Woman...Wow....:D

  11. Your bags are beautiful Deb, and I love your creativeness. What a neat gal you are! I REALLY love the birdie sling design (I think it's a design/pattern) :) May have to put that on my wishlist!

  12. Yay! Hoping you'd stop by Kortni! I'm thinkin' you need a fall bag, right? Maybe the Giveaway Bag could be in your future?!:D

    The Birdie Sling by Amy Butler, is HUGE!! Very fun, but really big!

    Stay tune as the GB progresses.......:D

  13. Just back from NYC after an anniversary weekend with my fabulous hubby ... and I am relishing life back in Mitchell. So quiet, and so relaxing, and no horns honking.

  14. Welcome home!
    And good luck on the drawing!

  16. Wow. So cool. I saw this on Calin's profile. :) Neato! Amy (Chastain) Hendershott

  17. Thanks Amy!! Glad you stopped by for a visit!
    Good luck on the drawing!

  18. You are beautiful and your bags as well... you are an amazing artist! Still loving my porch pillows... thank you, thank you!!

  19. I'll try this again. My comment did not get posted the first time. If anyone could take old things and make them new, it would be you. That's why you are the recipient of my cast-offs.

  20. Becca!! So good to hear from you!! Anything else you need made??! Can't wait to see the baby!!

    Nancy! Thank you for the 10 years of garbage that you've been blessing me with.!! It's so nice you think of me as you sort your garbage!! :D

  21. Saw this on Calin's page.. your purses are so beautiful!! I told Jordan I want to come over soon so I can make a purchase : ) See you soon! E.Suarez

  22. I love your beautiful bags and so does my daughter. The colors are amazing and just my style. May God Bless you.
