And The Winner Is…

Ok folks, the contest has come to an end and one lucky winner has been chosen.

I used a very scientific method to choose the winner.  I wrote out all the names of everyone that entered, either by comment, tweet, or stumble.  Then I cut the paper up, separating all the names, folded them up, put them into the bag and shook it up.  Then I found an assistant to help me choose a random piece of paper out of the bag.

And the winner is…APRIL!!!

April (who is blogless) accidently posted her entry on the wrong post, but I still let her enter the contest because I’m just nice like that.  April, please e-mail me your mailing address and I’ll get the bag sent out to you.

If your name isn’t April, don’t be sad.  You still have time to order your own Halloween totes over on Etsy.

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest!  I really enjoyed your comments.  It was nice to see some new names around here!

It’s A Halloween Giveaway!

I’ve been hinting around for a while now about my big Halloween project and it is finally time to show it off.  It took a long time to get everything ready, especially since Evie’s sleep patterns have been extremely inconsistent lately.  I discovered that it is very hard to sew with a baby in your lap!

But, today I’m finally ready to share two big announcements.  First off, I have opened my very own Getting Crafty Etsy shop.  I’m a huge fan of Etsy and I’ve wanted to do this for a very long time.

The first items up for sale in my shop are these super cute reversible Halloween Trick or Treat bags. I wasn’t sure they would ever get finished in time, but I finally have enough to open up shop. There are currently two different patterns available – the sweet Pumpkins and Candy Corn or the spooky Ghosts and Goblins.

That isn’t the best part though.  One lucky person is going to win a bag of their own! There are three easy ways to enter the contest.

1.) Leave a comment telling me what you (or your kids) are dressing up as for Halloween.

2.) Post on Twitter about the giveaway (you must include @deew27 so I can find it).

3.) Stumble this post and leave a comment here letting me know that you did.

All entries must be completed by 5:00 p.m. (Central) on Thursday, October 9, 2008.  One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries at that time.  The lucky winner will win one reversible Pumpkins and Candy Corn Trick or Treat bag, perfect for toting around all those sweet treats the kids will be collecting.
