12 days of Christmas Giveaway...Day Twelve!

Welcome to day 12!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoo Hoo It's almost time to give it all away!

Today is a Double prize!


So first meet Mary of Sweet Peas Totes






Tell us a bit about yourself
I'm Mary and I live in Tennessee. I moved here after living in New York for 24 years. I love baking, pattern making, and of course, sewing. I've been sewing for 35 years now, and I love challenging myself to come up with new designs and ideas everyday.

How did you get started crafting?
I started sewing in Home Economics class when I was 16, and haven't stopped since. After sewing dresses, costumes, and dolls for my daughters throughout their childhood, I began creating handbags.

What is your favorite material to work with?
I like working with any type of fabric, especially one with a bold and colorful print. I also like to work with metal rings in order to give my handbags a modern look.

What is a favorite Christmas Memory?
I don't have a particular favorite memory, I just love the overall feeling of Christmas. I especially loved the holidays when my children were young. Getting to see their bright faces opening presents around the tree is what I'll always remember.

Where do you sell?
I sell my handbags and patterns on etsy at http://sweetpeatotes.etsy.com.
I also sell my patterns on youcanmakethis.com.


This gorgeous purse is one of the final items for the Grand Prize, Made by Mary

But Wait there's more!!...



The Grand Prize winner will also get a $40 gift certificate to my shop!
You can pick something pretty for you or someone you love!!

And there is still more.....!
For the daily prize there will be three winners!

Each will be chosen at random and announced Saturday morning!

Winner #1 will win my Capture Life necklace, by far one of the most popular necklaces in my Store.

I think a neat stamp to have would be the image of the world with little stick people holding hands. Nothing super complex, but still, it would be really cute.
And a lot of people like world peace.
I think it'd be a hit, maybe. :D

As for stamp ideas - it'd be cool to have a stamp with the sign for "I love you" in sign language.

I think a pet theme stamp would be perfect. Lots of people think of them as "children" and you could do a lot of the same ideas with the family necklaces with animals on them.
