My 100th Post Giveaway!!!

YAY!!! I made it to 100!! It was touch and go for awhile....I thought I would NEVER get this done! Without further ado....here is what I am giving away.....







This banner is made using burlap, felt, tulle, ribbons, and a thick "rustic" twine.




The leaves were cut using a pattern from my sweet friends at Wee Folk Art, then monogrammed with family names. I used a thin wire threaded through the back to help "shape" the leaves, and to make them stiff.
The banner is approximately 78" long...that's over 6 ft of burlap goodness!! The individual pennants are about 8" x 10", the 8" of course, being at the top of the pennant. The ends have been serged to keep the weave of the burlap from coming undone!



Here is the Giveaway info:

The Giveaway will start NOW and go until sometime Monday, November 2nd. I will be out of town this weekend and possibly away from my computer so if I don't get a chance to thank each of you for visiting.....THANK YOU FOR VISITING!! :)


All you have to do is leave a comment...interesting ones are the BEST...tell me what your plans are for Thanksgiving....tell me what you did for Halloween...and for all of my "out of the States" visitors, tell me what SEASON it is!! :) (YES! I am shipping internationally!!)


Make sure you leave an email, blog link, or some other way for me to get in touch with you if you are the winner!!

The winner will receive a Burlap Banner. If you like the FAMILY one...great, but I would be willing to do FALL or AUTUMN. If you prefer all one color on the letters...I can do that too! Tulle and ribbon colors can be your choice also. I'm always open for suggestions, so tell me what you like!



Well, I guess that is it for now! I will be back Monday to announce the WINNER!! Thanks again for visiting and Good LUCK!! Until later...

congratulations on 100 posts!
Interesting comments huh? How about this; I'm crazy jealous that your halloween sewing is done. I've got one finished, she even wore it to pre-school today, but I still have a shirt and a wig to start for our party tomorrow night. I guess I'll have to see if I can get a break from cleaning up potty messes long enough to get any of it done.

Congratulations on your 100th post! I like the leaves that you added to this banner! It is a nice touch. If you happen to draw my number, draw again. Since I won the giveaway last time, I want someone else to have a chance!

GIRL!!!!! How darling is that!!! Congrats on 100 posts - I'll be there soon!!!! Oh pick me pick me, lol....
Ok, my interesting comment - huh. Um. What a bore I am. We're doing nothing for Halloween, we don't get kids in our neighborhood so we won't even hand out candy - and for Thanksgiving, same old stuff, dinner with family [hubby cooks a mean turkey]!

Oooh, I like, I like. Which means: I want! This is super cute. Happy 100! And many more. Enjoy your trip. We will be hanging at home and all three kids will be going out Trick or Treating together, for the first time. I am not sure however, for how long I can keep Yanic from running ahead, though.
Thanksgiving is at our house again this year. Which means some of John's family will be coming over, his Mom will bring the Turkey and I make the side dishes. I am planning on making new napkins and placemats for everybody. Like Carrie from Diximango did.
Have a great weekend. Hope you have fun.

Yay for you 100th post girl!!! How fun! Oh--and I put some linkie love on my blog to yours about the gifts. It took me way too long to do so, I know!

For Thanksgiving I'm braving it and we're headed to the in-laws...however I am super excited bc we'll be in Houston for Black Friday! And I've NEVER shopped on BF before...crazy, right?!

The banner is adorable. I love it!

Can I enter? But if I win I don't want you spending a fortune on postage! As a lucky winner of that beautiful tutu I just about died when I saw how much it cost you to post (as I'm sure you did when you had to post it) xx Tam

Congrats on your 100th post!

I know that I've told you before, but your stuff is truly beautiful and you are very creative. Keep up the good work.

Thanksgiving is always super special to me. We travel to Baton Rouge to eat Thanksgiving Dinner with my husand's family. I ALWAYS make dessert. Still trying to decide what to do this year. I love dressing the girls up in fall colors.

Ah, the holidays!

I love the banner. Thanks for this giveaway--I'm relatively new to sewing, and I'm totally inspired by your creativity. My hubby's in the Air Force and has training for the month of Nov, so we'll be spending Thanksgiving in a hotel, eating out somewhere! Always an adventure!!

100 posts is impressive!

Congrats on 100 posts!
We had a great Halloween, which I still have to post about. It involved freinds, pizza dinner, lots of trick-or-treating and coarse, vomit. Yup, that is the way to end the night.
Hope you had a good one.

100 posts! Wonderful! I think it's always fun to glance back at my beginning posts to see how much I have changed, and learned. Have you looked back at yours yet?

Thanksgiving...well, just about 23 years ago I got married the weekend BEFORE T-giving, so I always get to think about my anniversary and my wedding! Spending the time with family has also been something very important to me. THIS year I am heading to a beach, with family, but we'll not be able to lay out or swim. We will just get to be together, walk on the sandy shore, hear the surf, and count our blessings. :)

Congratulations on 100! It goes by so fast. I didn't even realize until I went to write the other day that I was at 207...maybe @300 I'll do something. ;)

I made a sweet little cape for my son for Halloween that he showed off at my school that I used to work at much to ahhs and coos from lots of ladies. He also thought it was delicious...red lame...can't say that I've tried it, but I trust his judgment.

Thanksgiving?! Holy turkey! It's November?! Really? Yikes. I better be thinking about what I'm making soon...we'll probably have a small get together with my family. My brother, dad, and hubby will conspire to fry the turkey in the driveway and will feel manlier for accomplishing such a feat. I will keep the boat of gravy for myself and eat my weight in mashed potatoes happily. There will be pinochle played under the influence of turkey. It'll be swell.

Yeah for giveaways! Found you thru SMS. I think the fall-colored Family banner is wonderful and would love to win it!

We survived Halloween here in Eastern Oregon. It was a fun, cold night with my two pirate princesses and a mad scientist. We pressed apple cider and ate homemade donuts at church before heading out trick or treating. Thanks for the giveaway and happy 100th blogiversary.
