sew mama sew giveaway day!

------------GIVEAWAY CLOSED----------
Randomly chosen winner is #25 -
Melissa Graham said...
My mom and I always wanted to visit Hawaii and Egypt. She didn't live to see either place but I hope to someday at least make it to Hawaii with my family.

Congratulations, Melissa!  Hope you enjoy your pillow!

---------------------------------------------------

Once again, Sew Mama Sew, is hosting a giveaway day.  This time, it's for a whole week, May 6-10!  It's fun to participate and fun to see what everyone else is giving away.

Is there someplace you have always wanted to visit?  This summer, I am traveling to Haiti on a mission trip and am super excited about it!  I have wanted to go to Haiti as long as I can remember.  One of the ways I am raising funds for my trip is by making and selling handmade items.   These pillows are the first of my fundraising projects!



That being said, I am giving away this awesome pillow to one sweet reader!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me the one place in the world you have always wanted to visit.  The giveaway closes at 8pm EST, on Friday, May 10.  I will randomly choose a winner at the close of the day and email them, so make sure you can be contacted through email when you leave your comment.   I am also happy to ship internationally!

Don't forget to visit Sew Mama Sew for more great giveaways!

Happy Giveaway Day!
