As Promised - My First Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Anita! Thanks to everyone that entered. Check back soon for the next giveaway.

It's here! My first giveaway. I must admit, I'm kind of excited. I actually had the project all made on Monday but have waited until today to actually post. This project is so easy, so useful and makes a great gift. I've given them as a Mother's Day gift, birthday gift and a "thanks for having us to dinner" gift. I have yet to make any for myself to keep, so I think I'm going to tell the hubs to enter the giveaway in hopes he'll win. Just kidding.

So what we have is a set of four, yes four, ribbon accented kitchen towels. This project comes from Sew4Home. I love this site. They have so many tutorials that I could keep this blog going for months with just their site. They also have links to other great sites that sell fabric. When I am independently wealthy, I will buy all my favorite fabrics from their recommended sites. But for now I'll just have to look.

After searching way too many stores, I finally found these at a great price of 2 towels for $3 at Walmart. Wahoo! They are nice and thick and super absorbent (or so I have been told). The tutorial had you do all sorts of measurements to make sure all the ribbons and fabric were lined up exactly so on each towel. I just eyeballed everything and you can't tell unless you look real close. So if things not lining up perfectly bothers you, don't look too close.

Okay, on to how to enter. You can enter three ways with this giveaway.
1. Become a follower of this blog. Once you are following, leave a comment that you are following. If you are already following, just leave a comment that you are.
2. Post a link to this giveaway from your blog and leave a comment that you did so.
3. Post a link from a social networking site about this giveaway, like Facebook or Google+ and once again, leave a comment that you did so.

Other rules and stuff. A winner will be chosen at random from all eligible comments left by Wednesday, July 27th at 11:59pm mountain time (is it standard or daylight savings now?) and announced on July 28th on the blog. Sorry, but at this time I will only be able to ship the towels to an address in the United States. If you are outside of the US, I will gladly send it to someone in the US for you.

So there you have it. My first giveaway. Happy entering and good luck. I have a couple more projects in mind to post about so keep checking back!
