My Merry Messy Life: A Crafter's Dream Giveaway #ACraftersDream I'm so excited to bring you A Crafter's Dream Christmas Giveaway! This giveaway is hosted by My Merry Messy Life, Earning-My-Cape and Tutus & Tea Parties and has a Christmas, crafting, and supporting small business theme! Each blogger is offering her/his own giveaway worth $25 or more going on now through Sunday, November 4.

Sometimes we want to give a handmade gift, but just don't have the time or know-how to make them ourselves. This is a great opportunity to support small businesses and shops who offer handmade items! Some of the blogs in our giveaway group will be highlighting such small businesses and offering giveaway items for them, as well. Even if you don't win the giveaway, we hope that you will keep these small businesses in mind when shopping for that perfect gift for your special someone.

This is the second giveaway I've done with this group of awesome people and you are really going to enjoy it.  With so many blogs and stores to visit, I know you are going to find and hopefully win some wonderful Christmas items.

My very generous sponsor is:

Have you visited Ribbon Retreat?  If not, you're in for a great time.   Most of you may think they have just ribbon but they have so much more including fabric, buttons, and all the supplies you need to make something very special.  And everything - everything - is so reasonably priced.  You are going to be surprised!

Fabric from Moda, Michael Miller, Riley Blake, Amy Butler and more.  Lots of patterns and kits.

And the ribbon!  Oh my!  They have everything you've ever wanted!  Ric rac, resins, trims, flowers, feathers, and more.

Well, I could go on and on but we all want to hear about the giveaway and they have been very generous in that department as well.

Ribbon Retreat is sponsoring this giveaway with the following package:  15 different Christmas ribbons each with 2 yards, 4 resins and a fat quarter of fabric.  Can you see that red snowman ribbon in the second row?  That's my favorite!

But there will be two winners in this giveaway because I have created a Christmas Tree pillow from the Ribbon Retreat supplies I had purchased.  This will give you an idea of what you can make.  Took me 3 hours, start to finish.  It's 12" square - I cut the fabric 12.5".  Backed the front and back with some thin quilt batting.  I laid out my ribbons in the way that pleased me and then sewed each strip on and added the buttons (also from Ribbon Retreat - my favorite ones!).  Sewed the pillow together, turned it and stuffed it.  Perfect gift or to decorate your home!  And you can win this one.

I'm sorry but because of the cost of shipping, I can only have this giveaway open to those in the U.S. So let's get this party started. a Rafflecopter giveaway
