Giveaway Carnival!





I'm thinking this is a great idea and I'd love to participate. So I am.


I'll be giving away a custom handbag, complete with organizer inside.


The organizer is something like a Purseket, but handmade by me.



This is my quilted fabric bag, and has tons of pockets and is reversible.


The organizer will be of a coordinating fabric.


To win, just leave me a comment below. You have until Friday, at which time I'll figure out some way to choose a winner -- either names in a hat, or I may try and do the Random Number Integer thingy -- either way, someone will come away with a new purse!

Be sure and leave me your email address so I can contact you!
