Ok folks....this only happens every four years....


It's Leap Year and there are going to be some great give-a-ways going on.  Visit Such a Sew and Sew to see all the linky's.  This will be my first give-a-way and I am so excited and nervous.  Hope you like it!

I have made probably 40 plus of what I call the little "Smile" bag.  I call them that because everytime I give someone one of these cute little bags they SMILE!  So since I want my winner to smile....I am giving one away.  I love cats so this is one of my favorites.  These little bags are perfect for carrying a project to work on because there are 3 little pockets on each side.

Now hidden down inside is a couple of other cute things but you will have to win to see what they are.  My give-a-way will start at 12:00 midnight, so leave me a comment and tell me what you are doing for Leap Day!  I will generate a winner Thursday morning before I go to work.  Make sure that I can reach you!

Have a great day!

I hope it isn't too early for me to comment. I love my kitty Smoky, so it would be fun to have a kitty bag. I would certainly smile.

Janet said...

I love cute little bags! I am going to spend Leap Day at work, then I have a couple of hours to read blogs and maybe check out if anyone has posted on my giveaway :) and then I'm sleeping over at a friend's house. So what if I'm almost 60 - I'm not too old for sleepovers.

Lisa Cox said...

Cute bag! Apparently, with the storms we had last night, I will be out trying to get chicken coops fixed back up. The winds tore most of the coverings off the pens, and even shifted one enough that the door will not stay shut. Lots of manual labor for me today, and the wind is still blowing strong!
