Giveaway!!

So my loverly friends of blogland I decided that is about time I show you some gratitude by giving away a handmade bunting by ME to YOU!

I don't think I have said it enough but this blog really makes me so happy and means a lot to me! It gives me motivation to keep crafting, reading, set and accomplish goals AND the best part...I have met so many wonderful friends!! I just want you all to know how much it means to me that you take time out of your own life to take a peek into mine, seriously...it means so much to me!!




I saw this fabric at Joanns when it was still winter and I fell in love. It made me so happy and long for spring!! I loved it so much that I didn't even really want any other fabric incorporated. I did look but I just wasn't happy with the way any other fabrics looked together. After I sewed it all together I felt it was missing something though or a bit plain maybe. I found some adorable green leaf buttons but they didn't really show up too well with the green bias tape I used. Soooo....after some thinking it dawned on me CROCHETED FLOWERS, duh!! I have a butt load of buttons handed down to me from my mom and I found a bunch of different yellows ones that I used as the centers. I love these buntings so much, they are so springy and wonderful to look at. I made two of them so TWO of you can win!!!

All you have to be is a follower of my blog with either Google or Bloglovin and leave a comment telling me what you have planned for the month of May, it's that simple! You can earn extra entries by posting about this giveaway somewhere else, your blog, twitter (mention @jamietoohey), facebook, wherevs just so long as you leave a separate comment and a link it'll count.
So my darlings...I figure there is no better way to start the weekend than with a giveaway!!
I'll pick two winners at random next Friday, May 6th (I can't freaking believe it will be May already!!)

Good Luck!!

Hm...for the month of May. Well, first making it through finals week, then my roommate's wedding (tear) and finishing this 1-up afghan. Oh and moving back home, finishing jewelry sets and a few random ami's. Now let's hope the time won't run away with me :)

The bunting is so cute! My May plans are to finish making the curtains for my hallway and the laundry room. I also want to finish the jeans quilt that I'm making for my sister. I'm aiming high :)

Very beautiful bunting!
My plans for May are starting out with the celebration of 8years marriage to the best person in the world on May 2nd! My husband and I are hiking to a waterfall. I am planting my garden, finishing one of five more classes at school, starting the fishing season, and getting the kids out of the house more now that it's not raining all the time. Hope your May is awesome!
