Giveaway Week: 150 Followers Appreciation Day!

***This Giveaway is now Closed***

giveaway week

Day 4 of Giveaway week is finally here!! All giveaways end on Monday 3.26, so you still have time to enter! (Plus there will be one more tomorrow.) :)

I guess perhaps today should be a 200 Follower Giveaway! and then we'd actually be celebrating it right on time! :) Either way, thanks for following!! And for a huge shout out to all of you, I think it's about time we get onto the giveaway! :)  (I think I said everything in yesterdays giveaway. ;) And if not, it's too early to think about anything else to write right now. Maybe I'll come back to this post and add more later. lol.)

The prize for this giveaway was kind of a hard one to decide on. But I finally decided to share some of the love from yesterdays giveaway! Did you see this charm picture that is part of the Charming Travelers???

Well, did you know that this stack is actually two of the same stacks put together? I wanted to get yesterdays giveaway posted before I had finished cutting, so I just put the two piles together. Yep. That's right! I cut out two charm piles! So far they each have 25 fabrics in them. I obviously have more charms to assemble for yesterdays prize, and will cut more for todays. But I'm not sure what number I'll end up with. I have to say, I kind of felt bad yesterday having so many rules and exclusions for the giveaway, that I've decided that today I am just going to give this second pile of charm squares away to one of my lucky followers!! :) No rules, no exclusions, no passing it on. It's yours just because you won this giveaway! :) I know some of you that entered the Blogiversary Giveaway have said you don't blog regularly, or maybe you don't live in the US. Well, now you can still get in on this stack of goodness (and randomness). How does that sound??? 



Want to know how you can enter? 
(there are 3 possible entries - leave a separate comment for each)

  • Since this is a Follower Appreciation Giveaway, you MUST be a follower. (NEW FOLLOWERS WELCOME!) Leave a comment letting me know you are.
  • Blog, facebook, or tweet about this giveaway and leave a separate comment telling me you did.
  • Leave me a comment telling me one unique thing about yourself! :)


This giveaway will be open until Monday March 26th 2012. 
I will pick a winner that evening.


***This Giveaway is now Closed***

Make sure to come back tomorrow for the last giveaway! You can find the previous ones from this post.


p.s. leave your email if you are a no-reply blogger. If I have no way to get ahold of you, then I will pick a new winner. Sorry!

  11. Unique... hmm... that is a tough one. Could it be that I am the only person that does not have something unique about them?? No... because that would make me unique! OK, then - judging from this blog comment, I would say that I am unique because I "seem" to try to include every type (almost) of punctuation in my writing while keeping periods to a bare minimum!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I guess something that is unique about me (but not really). I'm a military wife that is in the middle of a 1 year deployment with 3 kids, 2 of which are teenagers. We've managed to survive 7 months, and counting! lol.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm a follower and my unique thing is that I love Rod Stewart. I am a bit young for this, as I was born in the late 70s.

  16. I'm a follower. The travelling charm pack is a great idea, hopefully someone will be inspired and start a Canadian version. In the meantime I'd love to win these.

    ReplyDelete
  17. When I was a kid and the cats cradle thing yarn was popular where you pass it back and forth with someone - when people stopped wanting to play with me I figured out how to pass it back and forth to my feet. :)

    I know - so wierd but I would imagine it is pretty unique! LOL

  24. Unique...hmmm...I hate the sound of my own voice on any electronic devices. I refuse to leave messages unless I have to and I will avoid drive-thrus if at all possible.

    ReplyDelete

  27. Something unique about me: when the summer comes and the sun brings out all my freckles, I have a bunch of them that practically join together and it looks like I have a black eye!

    ReplyDelete
  28. And my unique thing is that my bunny is like my child - he has his own room, he gets special treats at the supermarket, and when he chews my favourite shoes I can't be cross cos he is just so darn cute!

    ReplyDelete
  29. One unique thing about me? I have no belly button.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm a brand new follower - love the look of these charms and can't wait to check out everything else! :)

  31. Something unique about me... Hm. I don't know that it's unique, but I got a sizeable raise yesterday and am SUPER DUPER excited about it! I told my aunt and her first comment was that it was time for a fabric shopping spree, haha! :) Thanks for the chances.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I follow you daily, and not always on purpose ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. let's see, something unique... well, I have a tattoo that no one else has because I designed it! It's Elliot, from Pete's Dragon, in a sitting position, with his hands clasped around a lavender daisy (my favorite!). He's even MORE unique because I got a mosquito bite right on his belly the same day I took the gauze off, so his belly's not quite right. Also, the artist has a signature, so I'm pretty sure I've got the only Elliot with a popeye arm!

  39. I would love to make a quilt with these! I am in two other charm swaps--so the collection along with these would give me a wonderful selection!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Something unique about me? I am the only left handed person in my family. (No, I am not adopted!) However, I really use both hands and can write just as well with my right as with my left.

    As a child I was always so disappointed because I thought, if I ever broke my arm--I would still have to write in school because I could use the other hand! LOL (Ironically, I have never broken any bones, except for my two front teeth--are those bones!?)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm a new follower. Congratulations on your blogiversary.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm unique (just like everyone else). Why, you ask? Well, it's really the combination of several unusual traits and experiences that makes me unique. A few examples: my favorite thing to do as a child was swim in the Pacific (the northern part, near Oregon, not the sunny southern beaches; I studied for a semester in Russia; I was married at a state park; my eyes change color within the range of green to brown.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Something unique would be we built our own house from scratch and love it! Otherwise I am pretty normal I think. :)

    Little known unique tidbit about me: we had our first phone installed when I was 15 years old - and it was long distance (and party line) to all my friends in high school so rarely called anyone.

Well, apparently, I screamed my head off when he did this to me. They said I would never walk. My Dad took me to the Shriner's Hospital. They fixed me:)I started walking right before my 14month younger sister did.

  72. One unique thing about me: In high school I discovered I could open just about any combination lock on anyone's locker. I'd be standing around talking to friends just turning the combinations to have something to do with my hands and pulled on it and it unlocked. I thought it was weird but I tried it on other lockers and magically they'd open for me too. I never opened anyone's locker of course. I'd always lock it back after it unlocked. But it was a cool little parlor trick I'd do to amuse friends.

  86. and I am so pleased you are doing a second stack- I would have loved to take part in the traveling stash, but living outside the US it would have been difficult...

    something unique about me...I have the same name in real life as that of a very famous character on a show about a girl who is not very fashion savvy and starts working at a fashion magazine...and I used to teach in a high school at the height of that show's fame...plenty of giggles from my students...but I never ever wore a poncho, honest!

  90. My uniqueness may not be totally unique...I inherited from my Grandma. But if a friend shows me a picture of something.. I can make it for them. While patterns and instructions make things easier.. I can "see" how to make something like the picture. Comes in handy for gift giving... No regifting needed..it's always what they wanted!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I once had a pet skunk - pretty sure that is unique. I also want to start banjo or mandolin lessons this year - that is a unique desire but doesn't make me unique since I haven't actually started yet :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm a new follower, yay! Cute stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  98. And I"m not very unique... although I'm a bit OCD about bugs (if found in the house), sticky counters/floors, or basically anything out of place. Neat freak might be a better word for it :-)

    LOVE those charm squares!

    ReplyDelete
