It's Giveaway Time Again!! :)

It's that time again!!  I love giveaways.. hosting them, entering them, and, once in a while, winning them! :o)

Michele at the Quilting Gallery is having a Back to School--

It's so fitting b/c my son just started kindergarten on Wednesday. 

I missed the last blog hop giveaway party, but this time I'm giving away a little pre-cut pack of fat quarters from my stash.  Twelve of them.. 



..along with a $20 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.



I love the FQS!!  :)  I will ship internationally, and you can enter anytime before Tues. September 4th.  

Just leave me a comment letting me  know you follow.  For a second chance, if you wish, you can tweet, facebook, or share on your blog and link back, leaving me a second comment letting me know.  I will post the winner sometime on Tues. Sept. 4th.  :)   For other giveaways, click the button below. The list of participating blogs will be listed there sometime after midnight, EST on Sunday morning, Aug. 26th.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Good luck and have fun!!  

P.S.  Here is my little one and his 'Here I am at school!' pose..
..when did he get so big? 

I miss these chubby legs, and big cheeks. Has it really been 5+ years?


..And here he is walking into the rest of his life. ;) *sniff, sniff*

I think I need a tissue.  And some chocolate. I love watching him grow into a kind, tender-hearted little boy.  But I'm sad that it's going by so fast!!


Good luck in the giveaways!  Have a great weekend!

Wow. What a giveaway! I'm a follower with bloglovin. Thanks for the chance to win.

It is hard watching them go off to school when they are young. I have to admit though, this year I was ready to ship them all off to school when the time came, except the littlest one. We were all a bit tired of each other. :)
Thanks for sharing!

I am a follower of you blog already. I don't tweet or blog so this is the best I can do. Thanks for the chance to win.

Just started following your blog. Nice fabrics! I know the feeling of letting go of your kids to school. It seems it was yesterday it happened to me and I'm now letting go to an independent life after college. It's hard but there's a great feeling of "mission accomplished". And I also have 2 more friends who are great: my daughters.

Gene Black said...

Hi Kelli
I follow your blog. It is a big turning point when our kids start school. My two girls are now going into the last year of national school (age 4 to 12) and secondary school (12 to 18) and it only seems like yesterday that they were starting school.

I remember the day my oldest child started school - it was so hard to watch her climb up onto the bus and be whisked away to school. A few years later, when my youngest child started school, I could hardly wait for him to climb the bus steps - I dashed home, grabbed a coffee and "celebrated" with a good book!

Great give-away! I'm a new follower. Thanks for the chance to win. My little guy is starting first grade so I was feeling the same way you are last year. He is my only too. Soon the sadness turns to awe as they start reading and doing math. wow!

Loris said...
