Make it Mine magazine giveaway

I just knew all of you would understand my need to cry over my broken machines!

Since I can't sew I'll be busy deciding which projects I want to make from the new magazine, Make it Mine. This is the new magazine I shared with you ago a few weeks ago (click here for post).
The day after that post I received a nice email message from the publisher. They obviously could tell how excited I was to discover this new publication and offered to send me a complimentary copy of the first issue PLUS copies for me to give away!

The good news: I have three copies to giveaway to you! (I already gave one away in addition to the one I kept for myself.)

If you're interested all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I'll do a random drawing (if more than three of you are interested) on Saturday. If you don't leave me your email address be sure to check back Saturday to see if you won.

The bad news: As much as I hate to do this, for this giveaway I'll only be able to mail these in the United States. Sorry :-(

I said it before and I'll say it again. This is a great magazine if you're a creative soul interested in embellishment, jewelry, simple sewing or just general crafting.

There's an interesting technique of photo copying images onto polymer clay; needle felting on a handbag; bleaching as an embellishment on jeans; decoupaging jewelry; embroidery basics; transforming RTW skirts from nice to wow! where did you get that; and turning a tee into a tote! That's just a few that caught my eye right away.

My first project? The photo collage on a wooden serving tray. It will make a great conversation piece as well as a wonderful gift.

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post if you want to be entered in the drawing for a free issue of this new magazine!

    I would enjoy reading what they say about transaforming rtw skirts from nice to wow.

  5. Looks like a great mag. And thanks for the chance to win it.
    Also sorry to hear about your machine problems.

  6. OOOH, count me in for a chance to win this magazine - it looks great!

  7. Sharon hope you got the machine into the doctor. I would love to be in your drawing! That's so cool that the publisher not only sent you a copy - but sent extras. g

  8. Oh man, it lost my comment, lemme think...what did I say....I think it went like this: don't count me in, you know I stink at getting these things done and the pressure to perform would do me in. And living in Zombobalaskansarkassouri would probably kill on postage.

    But....I'm here because your comment lifted me, Sharon, and I thank you. I am going to keep that close to my heart and I will begin with this weekend--it'll be payday and I will count God's kingdom first! xoxo

    PS--shirts will be ordered, this girl will be beside herself. Grateful I am.

I recently purchased a pair of pants at an Eddie Bauer outlet that fit me like butter, so I am going to draft a pattern from them. Thanks for sharing your sewing adventures...Mary
