Giveaway Day WINNER!!

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for entering my Sew Mama Sew giveaway this past week! It was so fun reading about what songs were playing in everyone's heads. And I apologize to those of you who ended up with the Muppets songs in your head after reading my post (they're just so darn sticky, aren't they?!?) And thanks for all the great jokes too! Now I've got some new material for entertaining the kids during long car rides and boring errands :)

Well, after plugging in the numbers into (to keeps things fair, I only counted 112 entries as the last one was in past the 5pm deadline.. sorry to be such a stickler to the rules..) the winner is...

who happens to be:

I heard some kids at my son's school singing/playing "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz in their rock band class! (Just imagine kindergartners and first graders on guitar, drums and vocals -- it was something!) Now I can't get the song out of my head.

Congratulations Amy! I'll be sending you an email to get your mailing address so I can get this little pouch off to you! 

Thanks again for visiting my blog and I hope you drop by again soon! And just a reminder that I've got a sale going on in my shop for 25% off everything! If you mention 'Muppets' in the notes to seller at checkout, I'll throw in a little extra surprise gift :)

well look at that, it's GIVEAWAY DAY!!

Hi everyone! And a warm welcome to all you SMS visitors! For those of you new to my blog, here's a little bit about me: I'm a full-time (stay-at-home) mom to two little kids, a crafter, a self professed fabric hoarder, and a lover of remnant bins and thrift store treasures. I like to blog mostly about my sewing projects, my obsession with Japanese craft books, thrifting, and pretty much anything crafty or vintage that catches my attention. 

I've always loved participating in Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day because, well, it's pretty fun to randomly give stuff away to people I don't know. And it's also such a great way to discover new blogs and make new virtual friends :) So, for this giveaway, I'm offering up my little Mod Vintage zipper pouch.

If you'd like to know all the nitty gritty little details about this pouch (size, fabrics etc.), check out my shop listing (by the way, I'm having a little sale over there right now..).

So, if you'd like to toss your name in the hat to win this little pouch, all you have to do is leave a comment below letting me know... 
What song is in your head right now? 

I ask this because this whole weekend, I've had the songs from the latest Muppet movie running through my head constantly! I feel like if I don't get these songs out of my head soon I might turn into a Muppet!!

If you don't have a song in your head right now, then please leave me your best joke. (Kid-friendly jokes are welcome too as my kids are always hitting me up for new comedic material.) 

One entry per person and please make sure I will have some way of getting a hold of you if you win (like your email address connected to your profile, or add your email right in the comment). Contest closes on May 25th at 5pm (PST), and I will announce the winner (to be selected by the mighty shortly after. This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere in the world (with a legit mailing address of course). 

Good luck! and make sure you head back to Sew Mama Sew to check out all the other awesome giveaways! (If you are also hosting a giveaway, feel free to include your link so I can head on over and enter yours!)

By the way, if you'd like to follow my blog, that would be fabulous!
I'm also on Facebook and Twitter if you'd like to pop by and say hello :)
