Amber’s Favorite Things Giveaway:

Favorite Things Giveaway! Win this Prize pack and enter similar giveaways from 24 bloggers!

Let me start off by breaking it down for you so that you can see my favorite things that one lucky reader will win. I had WAY too much fun putting this prize pack together and frankly, I think it’s pretty rockin’!

(Also, think of this and the other giveaways as a Holiday Gift Guide. These are fun things that maybe someone on your list would LOVE this year. Or maybe it’s YOUR wish list? Start thinking…)

When I asked my boys “what’s mom’s favorite thing that she should put in a favorite things giveaway?” they all answered in unison: “Chocolate!” So bring on the chocolate: (and not just a little bit of chocolate either)


You already know I love fabric! How about 4 half yard cuts of chevron fabric in fun colors?


Have you read The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton? It’s my favorite. It’s so good, so mind blowing, so amazing. Here’s Amazon’s description. If you’ve got a reader on your holiday list I HIGHLY recommend this book or any others but Kate Morton.Thesecretkeeper

OK, how about a nice, sappy movie? I know some people are diehards and love the 6 hour version, but this version of Pride and Prejudice is my favorite movie EVER! Prideandprejudice

And I’ve got a major thing for journals and pens, so I got you one of those. And you should know that the cover sparkles. Oooh la la! Jounalandpens

And, just for good measure I’m throwing in a free copy of my Learn to Sew eBook! (Also a great gift for someone learning to sew.)

Learn to Sew Series Part 2: Understanding Patterns, Bias, Interfacing, Sewing on Knits and More! By Crazy Little Projects

But the best part my friends? I am packaging all of this up in…my famous messenger bag! (My most popular tutorial.) I’m thinking your friends and family would REALLY like you to make this for them for the holidays. I made it in similar fabrics to this one (but I forgot the pocket inside-whoops sorry!)

    I just love your giveaway! Although some would make great gifts for some other people…I would probably be selfish and keep it!! LOL

  8. says

    I’m pretty sure if you & I lived close by, we would be best friends. Not only does your giveaway have chocolate, it has SALTED chocolate. I’m pretty sure I have those same awesome pens in my current purse, which is a smaller scale edited version of your awesome messenger bag! So even if I don’t win, I’m guessing I need to go watch Pride & Prejudice, & that book will have to go on my Kindle Wish list. :)

    What a great giveaway! I would really love to win that sewing book. I’ve got a couple of sewing machines but I’m a little intimidated by them. I think your projects might get me over the hump!
    Thanks for the opportunity :)

  15. Alison says

    That’s exactly what my kids would say if I asked them what I loved, CHOCOLATE! Second place would be fabric. So, this is the one I want to win.

    Love everything in your basket! Such an awesome giveaway! I have a thing for pens and bags! My husband tells me we are gonna need to add a room for all my bags.

  21. kathleen babbitt says

    I see that I have 9 entries and 16 earned. are my entries already used or is there something I have to do to enter? also what is the 16 earned meaning? I have tried to read the terms and conditions but it says sorry you have to be a us citizen! I am a us citizen! figured it was the same thing I had read before so when it asked me to read I checked yes . thought I could read them later as maybe the computer did’t recognize my country of origin. help me please!

  22. Jackie says

    Love the messenger bag! I started the Secret Keeper a few years ago and was really enjoying it. But then I accidentally left it at my kid’s swimming lessons and lost it. I have been meaning to check it out at the library again but never have.

  23. Amber says

    I definitely need to win your giveaway! I’m also an Amber who loves Pride and Prejudice, Snickers, fabric and sewing. I’ve put a copy of The Secret Keeper on hold at my library, so hopefully I’ll get to pick it up next week. You’re giveaway is probably my favorite one!

  24. Leeann Hadgis says

    I am so excited to have learned about your site and facebook page. I have been wanting to learn to sew. This is an awesome giveaway!

  25. Carole Lee says

    I am a sewer and have wanted to get some chevron fabric but have not done so yet. I would so love to receive your giveaway. Thank you for sharing your holiday gift ideas.

  26. Calien Laure says

    Great package! I haven’t seen this version of Pride & Prejudice and now I have to see it. And chocolate is always great. Love your selections, too. All my favorites!

    Can I tell you how much I love that messenger bag? So Cute! And are the pens ink different colors? Those are always my favorite.
