*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW CLOSED! STAYED TUNED FOR MORE IN THE NEAR FUTURE*

There's nothing quite as delightful as receiving a gift of
crafty treasures- except winning one!

Ever since I was a young lass (ok, it wasn't that long ago!), I enjoyed nothing more than opening a present to find that it contained creatively inspiring goodness- little treasures that had been carefully handcrafted or wonderful supplies that would allow me to create my own magic. Of course, Charlie the Sewing Machine was the ultimate crafty treasure!

With this spirit of sharing crafty inspiration in mind, I welcome you to my Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway! Today, you will be spoiled with the chance to win 3 handmade crafty goodies, one of which you can run away with and create something bewitching of your own.


Firstly, you will get to choose your very own Pepperberry & Co. Notebook Cover from the ones available in my Etsy shop:


Then, you'll be spoiled with 5 luscious pieces of handmade, plant-fiber paper to do with as you please:


And finally, you'll receive one of these delicate jewelry sets:



That's 3 handmade treasures delivered straight to your door, anywhere in the world!

To enter this wonderful competition, simply become a 'Follower' of Pepperberry & Co. (over on the right sidebar) and leave a comment telling me what your favourite crafty gift has been. Don't forget to leave your name, email and blog, or I won't be able to contact you!

The winner will be selected bright and early on Monday morning using the infamous Coconut the Cat method- although this time, we might give Monsieur the Cat a go...

Best of luck!

P.S. Head over to Sew, Mama, Sew! to enter all the other fabulous giveaways!

Guess I'll be your first entrant! I have become a follower and my best crafty gift was my janome 6600P sewing machine a few years back. I really like quilting and sewing. When I was a kid, I was always crafting. Ikept a shoe box filled with possibilities...pipecleaners, toilet paper rolls, felt, buttons, ribbon etc...I'd pull that box out often and craft away! Never understood why my girls never really liked crafting although my youngest has an artists' flare in her dressing! Very BRIGHT!!!!

WOW Sandra, you're doing an awesome giveaway! And gasp, you put more stuff in your shop!! My favorite crafy gift (to date) has been crocheted trivets that my husbands cousin gave us on our wedding day.

I wont be too disapointed if I don't win your giveaway since I'm already getting something of Pepperberry&Co fame. By the way- your little coaster package has been mailed today. Let's just see how long it takes to get to you =P

Hey that's a DOOZY of a giveaway! Which well and truly makes up for all the barely-contained, edge-of-seat excitement you whipped up in your last post!

Hmmm. Best crafty gift. My most recent one I think. My talented Aunty has crafted and been a dressmaker all her life. She is moving into a small retirement unit and I am the lucky recipient of all her fabric and trim treasures. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

HI Sandra,
Firstly, I'm already a follower. Secondly, what a lovely surprise to see that you have used some of my mushroom fabric in your work. Favourite crafty item is a hand-woven scarf a friend bought for me in Turkey. Check out my blog too for more giveaways!

Hi Sandra,
Since I have been a follower for a while, I think I just need to say that my favorite crafty gift received was a quilt my mom made for me with ladybugs on it. To us, ladybugs represent that mother/daughter bond, and since she made it just for me, I felt doubly blessed.

Thanks for the lovely giveaway,
Kami

I'm a Pepperberrian now now. hee hee I've actually been following your blog from the beginning. I love seeing all of you talents blossom! Thanks for the chance to win your lovelies!! My fav crafty gift wasn't one that I received but one that I gave away. I hand painted an entire hatbox(with sewing illustrations) and lined it with lovely material for my Mother-in-Law one year for her to keep her sewing things in. She LOVED it. I loved giving it to her more.

I have received so many amazing crafty gifts from friends around the world. They are my most treasured possessions, and make me smile even when I am ill or feeling down.
Two that stand out in my heart are a wonderful super chunky handmade bead cluster bracelet, and a hilarious cute felt plush chicken leg with a happy face, both made by dear friends.

I'm following you via RSS feed, does that count? Although I really started following because of the snap post! I never really get crafty gifts, but my daughter just got a handmade stuffed bunny from my grandmother. She has made one for all of the great grandkids when they turn one. Her hands have gotten too bad to make them, so my daughter's will be the last.

Such a generous and lovely giveaway! I'm a follower; I love that you give tutorials and instructions and share what you know with others. I hope we can all do that.
I haven't received a crafty gift in ever so long, but I always loved the things my daughter made me as a child (she's 33 now!). About 5 years ago she gave me a lamp with her own hand made stained glass shade: It is amazing. She can't wait until she can get back to this art.
Thanks, kathleen

I can't pick a particular item, but I think the best gift of all is the knowledge and skills that she passed on to me - and the love of sewing!

Hi Sandra,
I love the notebook covers! I look forward to enjoying your blog more and became a follower. My favorite crafty gift I have given was a blanket I made for my mom that had beautiful fleece with red robins against a blue background. My favorite gift received was a scrapbook my friend made for me. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

Hi Sandra! Thanks for coming by my blog. I love your shop! Great stuff. And yes, the bear fabric is Kokka.

My favourite crafty gift is probably the japanese craft book I got from my team yesterday when I left! It makes me smile.

Your work is wonderful! My favorite project has been teaching my dd9 how to sew on a very old Singer sewing machine. My mother taught me to sew too!

Thanks for participating in this great giveaway.

I've never won a giveaway from a craft blog before, but I did receive a sewing machine for Christmas, so that was an excellent craft gift. I still need some sewing practice with it, though... (LOVE your prizes, by the way!)

Hi
I love your notebook covers! They are awesome!
My favourite craft gift from a grown up was my sewing machine from my husband. I put it on layby and it was going to take me about 7 months to pay it off but my husband went and paid it off for my valentine's present.
And my kids make me cool stuff all the time. The best so far was the heart shaped mobile and scribble drawing coaster.

Your site is great! Love all the how-to's! Your work is beautiful! My favorite crafty gift was from my mother. It's a wonderful pink pin cushion/button & odds and end keeper with a bin underneath all on a lazy susan! Every time I use it I remember all the times I watched her make things and the things we made together.

Oh I love this giveaway so many goodies. My best gift was a charm pack from my husband, didn't even know what it was but saw it at a farm field days and bought it for me. I will be making something special for me with it.

Yea I'm following your blog!
My favorite crafty gift was from my aunt for our wedding present. It was a beautiful crotched piece of lace with my new last name on it in a frame. No one else has it which makes me feel even more special, I love it!

Your notebook covers are so gorgeous! My favorite crafty gift has to be a pair of pillows a friend made for me when I found myself living on my own for the first time. It was the perfect thing to make the place really feel like my own. :)

Sandra,

1. You are hilarious. I loved the most recent post.
2. Glad I found your blog. I will be perusing later after I am done fanatically entering entering giveaways.
3. I quilt with no guilt and have a true sewing disorder that can only be treated with more fabric.
4. I will cross my fingers and hope the random generator likes especially high numbers! (if that's how you choose)
5. You can reach me at : sewlittlequilts(at)gmail(dot)com
6. Thanks!!
