Thank yous and a giveaway!!

Before I get on to the giveaway, I wanted to say a few thank yous. Firstly - thank you for the sweet comments you left on my color-pop bag. I'm pretty sure I neglected to respond to each and every comment, so thank you for the bag love :)  Secondly, thank you for the comments and emails in response to this post. Each time I read one I felt a little upwards tug to the corners of my lips, as well as to the strings of my heart. You have no idea how much I appreciate you taking a piece of your day and spending it here. Seriously. I love you guys in the non-creepiest way possible :)

I was going to wait to do a giveaway until I reached 500 followers. But recent events have made me realize life is short and to just do things without waiting for a milestone to somehow make it more meaningful. So it's happening today. It's just as good as any other day, no?

One of my very favorite shops to browse is the Fat Quarter Shop. I'm pretty sure they have everything to fulfill any fabric obsession. Any color, pattern, style, genre, you name it. They ship worldwide, and are super-speedy with their dispatching. I picked out a few of my favorites to make you look at share with you.

Berenstain Bears. I think I still have a huge pile of these books in the attic somewhere. I used to loooooove them. 

Ms. Hoey has done it again. I absolutely adore her prints. She even has a Christmas line coming out this summer.

  These are the colors and prints that make my heart happy. Throw in a dash of aqua and I might...MIGHT...do a cartwheel. Badly. But still.

 Every time I see the Poky Little Puppy I hear my nephew's little toddler voice when he found the book amongst our shelves ("Hey! I wuv the poky yiddle puppy!")

 And let's not forget those stash-filling solids.

It's almost embarrassing how many more of these I picked to share and then I realized I might have a fabric problem and should just stop looking before I spend my tax refund (before I even get it).

So anyway - here are the details. I'm giving away one $30 gift certificate (emailed straight to you so no waiting!) to the Fat Quarter Shop to a randomly chosen winner. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. The only thing I ask is that I have a way to contact you -- either leave your email address or make sure it is linked to your profile. If you're concerned about spam, you can leave your email address in this format: sweetbeebuzzingsATgmailDOTcom. This is open to anyone, anywhere, but if you're outside the US be forewarned that shipping rates will increase. I'll leave this open until 11:59 pm EDT on Friday, March 9th, 2012. I'll announce the winner the next day-ish.

Good luck!

  61. I try to avoid the Fat Quarter shop, heck any online fabric shop because it's like crack cocaine baby. So many beautiful things that are just insisting to come and live with me for a while. I hope that things get better soon for you and yours.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win.
