A Fun Little Giveaway!!



Do you ever see something that is so cute that you just have to have but you can't decide which design or color you like best so after much thought and consideration, (like a whole 2 minutes worth) you just buy them all?  Normally I don't have the luxury of saying "I'll take 'em all!" but when that item doesn't cost "an arm and a leg", it does make it a little easier.  I found these sewing pins that seem to only be sold in the UK and I couldn't choose my favorite so I bought one set of each.  Hey, if they're going to take a ride across The Pond, you might as well get all of them, right? (Yes, that was one of the many excuses I made for buying them all!) 

 Aren't they lovely?

Being that 30 pins come in a set and I don't think I will ever need 150 sewing pins at one time, I thought this would be a great little Giveaway for my blogger friends.  Plus, I wanted to give each of you the chance to have the set that would have made it much easier for me...one of each design in each color.  In other words, you can't find this set assembled in stores...clever, eh? 


This one could be yours! :-)

I know it's something little but after my ordeal of trying to decide, I thought I'd make it much easier for one of you to just have 'em all! 


You have up to 3 ways you can enter (make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry)~


1. Leave a comment telling me which design and color of the sewing pins is your favorite of the collection.

2. Follow my blog.

3. Blog or Twitter about the giveaway.


The winner will be picked by random selection via Random.org on Wednesday, July 14th @ 9pm PST!

Good Luck! :-)

It is a toss up between the flowers and the leaves... I will go with leaves since they remind me of fall. ;)

Oh the leaves are definitely my favorite! I have seen flowers, teardrops, and simple circles before, but the leaves are completely unique. They look like they'd be the easiest to grab and handle, too!

jamie said...

okay really, they are ALL cute. i like the hearts & flowers best. i just can't choose. that's awfully kind of you to give one away. :)

Liz B. said...

I love the leaves, they seem like they'd be a nice big head to grip while pinning through finnicky fabric. Thanks for the chance at winning!

Marcia said...

These are adorable and have never seen any with these colors and styles. My favorite are the leaves followed by the flowers, then oval knobs and round ones, and hearts last. I like the larger heads and longer length as would fit my large hands better. Thanks for this giveaway and thinking of your readers. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

I like the flowers best - they are easiest to get hold of, and feel nice in my fingers.

Smeeker082 said...

wow I would have done just like you and bought them all! I really like the aqua color but also the green and red come in close behind. And I think the leaves are my fav

The red hearts are my favorite ones... although I love your idea of mixing them to make a new set!
And that would definitely help a beginner sewer like me!
Thanks for the chance!

Rachel Locke said...

I really like the flowers. Although mixing them all is a cool idea too. It would just be hard for me to decide which color of each I wanted to keep.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Definitely the feathers.

Katie B. said...

Adorable! I love the little green feathers.

Willa said...

All are cute but I think the hearts are the favorite.

Nancy Sue said...

Thank you for making this little Custom set of pins. I think they would be great when you need to mark strips (such as a bargello layout) as A1, A2, A3...you could use pink heart, pink teardrop. In other words it's nice to have different shapes of the same color. My favorite shape is the leaf. Thinking of fall projects, and cooler weather!
