It’s Giveaway Day!

Just came back from a lovely weekend away with friends, and participating in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day seems like a great way to keep the fun going.

So how about a chance to win a new tote bag? Nothing too fancy, just something to keep a towel, e-reader and sunscreen all in one place. I’m thinking laminated cotton to keep things dry poolside, and sweet summery prints. Yes?

How do you enter? We’ll keep that fun and easy, too. Just comment below, and let me know what your favorite summer beverage is. I’m crazy for iced teas, but I’m always looking for new ideas. Adult beverages count, too!

The giveaway will be open until May 10 at 5 p.m. PST, and then I’ll close it to comments and use the handy-dandy random number generator to pick a winner. I’m happy to ship internationally, too!

The random generator picked number 72: Congratulations to Betsy (I love iced coffee, too!) of quiltingfiesta.blogspot.com! And thanks to everyone for playing along ~ I have lots of great new ideas for summer beverages.
