Giveaway News

Hello followers and visitors! Sorry for the lack of posts for the last couple weeks. Other things are keeping me busy so in place of tutorials (which I'll be posting again soon), here's some other exciting news!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day
Sew Mama Sew is hosting their twice a year Giveaway Day May 23-25. It's huge. Over 300 blogs particpate in handmade giveaways and you still have time to add your blog if you want to join in. Bugglebee will be giving away something too so come back on the 23rd to find out what it is! 

You can also check out my other blog, Craft Buds, for tips on hosting and promoting your giveaways. We'll be hosting a giveaway there too. Lindsay who I run Craft Buds with will have another giveaway on her personal blog, Lindsay Sews.

Friends' Adoption and iPad Giveaway
Second item in giveaway news has to do with my friends Alex and Ray. I grew up with Alex and have known her all my life and I met Ray in high school through our church's youth group. They are an awesome couple with 3 great biological kids. They've decided to add to their family by adopting twins from Eastern Europe, Max and Lena.

They will to travel to Europe at the end of this month. While they prepare you can help out a great cause by donating to their adoption fund. Every $5 you donate counts as an entry toward an iPad giveaway they are hosting. You can find out more about their giveaway and their adoption process at their adoption blog. Make sure to enter by May 21 for the iPad! After that date you can still make a donation, it just won't go toward the giveaway.
