Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!!



Today I am linking up with a giveaway!!! You can win one of my holiday hats! The winner gets to choose, either two kids sized, or one adult sized. These will be made to order! I was initially going to do the Christmas hat, but I don't want to limit it to a holiday some don't celebrate. So here are your options:

Christmas:


Valentines:

Halloween:


Also some I have made, but didn't take pictures of before giving them away:
Saint Patrick's Day - White hat with green lining and pompom with green shamrock
Christmas - Green hat with red lining and pompom (elf)
Easter - Like the Halloween hat, but with three pastel colors instead

So here is how you can enter:

1. Tell me about your favorite holiday and why.
2. Become a follower of my blog.
3. Tweet specifically about my giveaway using @HerHouseDesigns or #HerHouseDesigns
4. Become a follower on Facebook.

Make a comment for each one you complete!

Also if you are a Facebook Fan I will do a whole other drawing for a hat out of my fans. It gets better! For each increment of fifty I reach on Facebook I will draw an additional winner! So one winner here, one winner on Facebook, and say I hit 100 likes on Facebook that will be two Facebook winners! The more you share the more winners!

Disclaimers: If you are a no reply blogger, I will not be able to reach you, so I will pick someone else to win. Sorry! Please leave your email to avoid missing out! Also these hats may not reach you by Christmas depending on how many need to be made, and where you live. I will try my hardest to get them to you by then, but just in case they don't.

Last but definitely not least check out my design page for a freebie and giveaway!!

This giveaway will last through the 17th, and a winner will be announced on the 18th!

My favorite super hero is Sailor Moon. I loved her so much as a kid! I even had a wonderful babysitter that made me a Sailor Moon outfit for Halloween one year, I think I still have it somewhere. Maybe I should dig it out for a post :) I really liked that she was a different kind of super hero. She wasn't an adult she was still in school, and she was a blond :)

Subway Art


So I went to Arizona last weekend and picked up my son from his dad's house. While I was there my mom and I got into a craft project. A friend of her's had given her the idea. She took some of her favorite art works and turned them into word art. This is how my mom's turned out:


I really liked how it turned out! I am not big on classic art, so this was really difficult for me. My mom gave me the idea to go to the scrapbook store and just do the colors in my living room. We went to the Scrapbook Barn in Gilbert, and the ladies were very rude and unhelpful, so I decided I did not want to buy from them. In the end my mom came up with the idea to use subway art. I spent the next hour or so creating my own subway art. 

I took that page and made my letters.


It was really simple. You just have to buy the flat letters at your local craft store. Print out the art work you want, making it fit the entire 8.5 by 11 page. Trace the letters on the page, then cut them out. Next you cover the letters with double sided sticky tape and place your cut outs on top! I had a lot of fun making mine!
