So let's see ... what could I do to mark such an event ... hmm ... I can't think of anything ... oh, wait ... a give away, I believe that'd be nice.
How about some unfinished handbags buried in the bottom of a drawer? Or a quilt that needs all the quilting stitching taken out of it (and there's a lot of stitching there)? Or parts of baby bibs, because I don't feel like cutting out the backs and sewing the two pieces together (nah, I'm not lazy)? A quilt top with no hope of being finished anytime soon?
I suppose it wouldn't be nice to drop those orphaned projects into someone else's lap, would it?
Oh, I know ... a gift certificate to Ditto Kiddo. Nah, that won't work, the store is closing on Saturday. Yes, Saturday. I still haven't grasped all of what will mean to me and my family, but I'm almost positive I'm ready to find out.
Better than those grand ideas ... I'll give away a one-of-a-kind Because I'm Me handmade tote of my choosing (it'll be one of the ones pictured in these two images) filled with miscellaneous. small fabric pieces. There may be other crafty items in the bag as well. The bag is just the right size for text books, library books, craft projects, baby necessities, and so much more.
Here's all that I ask of you: Comment on this post before next Monday, April 21st (I'd make it shorter but I have to get through the store closing this weekend). What I'd really like is a comment with your favorite crafting/sewing, home organization, parenting, money saving, or cooking tips ... you know, hints and ideas that would make other busy parents' lives easier.
While I'm excited to see your tips and tricks of the trade I'll choose the winner randomly.
Thanks for putting up with me for 200 posts.
