GIVEAWAY!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

In May, it will be one whole year since I sewed my first bag ever. And because Brighter Day has been life changing-ly good this year, I think it calls for a celebration.

You think so too?

Here's the deal.
I am giving away 5 bridesmaid clutches of your choice with personalizations as a "thank you" for an awesome year.

If you or a friend or your roommate or someone you met on the street is getting married in June or after, you're welcome to enter! (Or if you'd just like 5 clutches and are not getting married... that's ok too!)

Here's what you'll receive:
5 of any bag in my shop - you can customize the colors and add the personalizations. This is more than a $200 value!

Here's how to enter:
Go to the shop: Brighter Day, and find which style of bag you might choose if you win, and leave a comment saying which style is your favorite.

For extra chances to win, leave a comment for each of the following:
- Make Brighter Day one of your favorites on Etsy and leave a comment letting me know.
- Become a follower of this blog and leave a comment. (If you're already a follower, just let me know.)
- Pin something from the shop on Pinterest and leave a comment.
- If you buy something from Brighter Day (anything!), you get 5 extra entries (just comment for each one).

Sound good?
I'll choose a number using the random number generator and will let you know the winner on Monday, March 26.


Ready...
Set...
GO! :)

Good luck!

  44. It is really hard to choose which bag! I love them all! My favorite is probably the winter wool one though! The polka dot in gray is a close second though...but tied with the dijon clutch! Oh this is difficult! They are amazing. I love your blog. I check every day to see what else you have written about!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi! I don't really remember how I ran across your blog but it's quickly become a favorite! Anyways, it would be a toss up between the bow clutch and the ruffle clutch, but I think the ruffles would win out - especially if they came in some sort of polka dot fabric!
