My first giveaway (now closed)...and the opening of "Sew Technicolor"!

It's finally here, guys. :)

The grand opening of my Etsy shop! It's called "Sew Technicolor" and you can visit it here.

Many of the things that I've posted here are available to purchase, plus some different items: wallets, bags, hoop art, iPod/cell phone cases, and aprons. Hopefully, I will be adding more items very soon!

I just wanted to thank all of you, my lovely blog readers. Besides my family, you all have been my biggest encouragers and supporters in my sewing and crafting. So, to show my gratitude, I've decided to host my first ever giveaway! :)

I will be giving away two of my handmade items, so there will be two winners drawn.

Prize #1: Winner's choice of a wallet from my Etsy shop

These are the wallets that are up now, but I hope to have more available before the contest is over. I didn't feel like I could pick one that everybody would love, so I decided to leave it up to the winner. :)

Prize #2: "Goodnight, Moon" Felt Hoop Art

One of a kind felt hoop art framed in an 8 inch embroidery hoop.

How to Enter:

Note: Please read the instructions very carefully!

Mandatory Entry: Visit "Sew Technicolor" and browse a little. Leave me a comment here telling me what your favorite item is.

Extra Entries:

- Heart (aka, favorite) "Sew Technicolor" on Etsy= 1 extra entry
- Post about this giveaway on your blog and leave the link here= 1 extra entry
- Leave a comment with the link to a lovely Etsy shop (your own or just one of your favorites)= 1 extra entry
- Follow my blog and leave me a comment telling me you do= 1 entry

Please leave a separate comment telling me each way that you enter!

The giveaway will end next Saturday, October 30th. I'll announce the winners the next day!

Note: This giveaway is now closed!

I'm really excited about this giveaway, guys! Hope you are, too. :)

Until next time,
