I'm a Winner!

I don't know how it happened, but since late July or August I have won five different giveaways on five different blogs.  Really lucky?  I doubt it.  Right place at the right time?  Maybe.  Thrilled regardless?  Yup.

First came these chevron stripe note cards from Row House 14 (you remember Heidi), who did a giveaway over at The Blue-Eyed Owl.  This was a funny win because I was already friends with Heidi and was already eyeing these cards:

Then Janee at Yellow Bird, Yellow Beard was giving these cute fabric coasters away on her blog when she decided to join Twitter.  I amazingly won that one, too:

Pam from Bates Mercantile Co. (remember Pam?) was doing a giveaway with these chevron stripe note cards on her blog Mercantile Muse.  I told you I have a thing for paper goods.  And chevrons, apparently.  I won two sets of these, one to give as a gift if I so choose (ha!):

Nancy from ScrappyTude Studios decided to open a second shop for her reusable gift bags, aptly titled GiftAgain Gift Bags, and did a giveaway with this lovely bag on her blog, and I managed to snag that one as well:

And then finally, just about two weeks ago, I entered to win a $25 gift certificate to Skye Reve fabrics over at Maureen Cracknell Handmade (if you haven't seen her blog yet, you need to go there now).  And even through I was entries #1 and 2 out of 598, I somehow managed to win.  (Crazy!!!)  This bundle from Skye Reve is on its way to me:

I've now probably jinxed myself from ever winning another giveaway, but I just had to share because these are all such lovely items from some great shops and/or blogs that you really should check out if you haven't already.  It's really fun to develop a connection and interact with such a wide variety of people whom I've never met.  So I thank you all for your giveaways and know that I am loving all of these items.  There's one more spotlight and giveaway left in this fall series (have you entered to win this one yet??) and then I may have a little giveaway of my own.


  1. How, that is quite the winning streak!!! :) I had one of my own last year, during the Sew Mama Sew Great Giveaway, I think I one four, plus one on SouleMama right around that same time. And, one announced me as the winner, but never contacted me or sent my prize....grrr! :)

    I'll be having a new big one this weekend if you want to try your luck again! :)


  2. Wow! You did win big! I had a little streak last year when I won 2 vintage necklaces, a handbag, hair clips & a $100 modcloth gift card. It was amazing. I haven't won anything since...ha! I need to enter more though. Enjoy your goodies!

  3. Holy smokes! That's amazing. My winnings are very few and far between. Congratulations on your haul!

  4. Wow - that's a lot of fantastic loot! Well done.

  5. I am so jealous! I did recently win one giveaway, which was super fun, but nothing before or since. Oh well, luck follows some more than others:)
    Speaking of, if you're still feeling lucky, you can enter my giveaway to win a screenprinted bird pillow!

  6. Holy cow! That's a lot of stuff! Super awesome! I haven't won any giveaways yet, but I keep entering so I figure I eventually will have to, right? :)
