Fun Giveaway: You Can Make This!

youcanmakethis_christmasAre you crafty?  Then I am a bit a jealous because I am not, and that has been a cause of frustration for me.  I have read so many stories of people saving money by making their own things and I always wished that could be me.  Even though I know how to use a sewing machine, being creative or figuring out how to make something has never been easy for me.  That was until I heard of the website You Can Make This!  At ‘You Can Make This’ you can find easy to follow instructions written by people who are crafty and want to share their knowledge with others.  You can read customer testimonials about how much easier it is to follow ‘You Can Make This’ Ebooks instead of commercial patterns.  Most patterns are priced at around $10, but once you have the Ebook you can make more than one. They also have a great selection of FREE E Books. How cute is the Fruit Orchard Hat?  I love this Felt Food Ebook for my boys.

Today I am giving away an Ebook bundle worth $50 and containing the following patterns:

Child/Adult Apron Set,
Women’s Reversible Wrap Skirt,
“She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not” handbag,
Reversible Patchwork Bucket Hat,
Easy-Fit Pants
Boy’s ties.

All you need to do is:

  1. Check out the You Can Make This Website.  Then come back and tell me which other Ebook you think it would be fun to try.
  2. For additional entries you can:
  • Become a subscriber: subscribe to my RSS feed or Email updates for ONE extra entry.  If you are already a subscriber you are already eligible for a second entry.  All you need to do is leave a separate comment letting me know you are already a subscriber.
  • Tweet or blog about this giveaway.  Spread the news about this giveaway on Twitter or your own blog if you have one.  Leave me another separate comment with the link to this post or tweet.

This way you can earn up to four entries. Each entry must be made on a separate comment as each comment is considered a single entry. Please remember to leave your name and email address in your entry. I need to have a way to contact the winner. Entries with no contact information will be considered invalid.

This giveaway ends Saturday 2/14 at 9 PM CST. At that time I will select one winner at random using Random.org. The winner will be contacted immediately and will be given 48 hrs to contact me back with their mailing address. If I don’t hear back after that period of time I will select another winner randomly.  U.S. addresses only please.
