Giveaway no. 2

Sadly this giveaway is now closed to entries.
I am really excited about 2012. Its a year of new beginnings. Not only are we moving back to South Africa in April (after a 5 week road trip/family visit in the States - WHOOP WHOOP) But a friend and I are starting a business when I get back. I have been wanting to start a business for about 4 years now so I cannot explain how excited I am. I will explain more about it when the website is up and running. Which means goodbye teaching career. It also means trusting the Lord way more as its totally out of my comfort zone - but bring on the challenge. I know God is big enough :)

I also want to say thank you for supporting me over the past year - its been almost a year since I started paying some serious attention to this blog, and its been great to see everyone's enthusiasm. 
So lets get on with it and give something away!
This giveaway is for old and new followers (so you can still get in on it even if you are only joining today).  
Here is what you can win:
 This Melanie bag (pattern from I Think Sew).
(the giveaway is for the bag not the pattern - just to avoid confusion ;)

I really like this bag so here is another picture just because I can :)
 So here is what you have to do to win: 
1. Be a follower/become a follower.
2. Say hi, below(Leave a comment).
3. That is all :)

Things to remember:
You can only enter once.
Please make sure that you leave an e-mail (if its not in your info) so that I can get hold of you - I won't spam you, I will only e-mail you if you have won.
You can type it like this: 
inspired(dot)gabi(at)gmail(dot)com

Anyone can enter from any country. If you can receive mail you can enter :)

The giveaway ends on Sunday Jan 15th at 12pm (Colorado time - just because my brother lives there and to avoid confusion with all the different time zones) 
If I announce a winner and I don't have your e-mail I will give you 3 days to contact me - then I will have to redo the draw:)
(It will be a random draw )

^.^
Oh and PS. I'm off to Hong Kong this coming week - so If I seem absent, don't worry I'll be back - hopefully with some great new craft finds.
Blessings


Gabi

Following you.

Enjoy your trip and go "werid" shopping crazy. You know - when you buy are the strange and random stuff you would never do at home and then gift it to friends - teehee.

Amazing bag - the winner will be a lucky gal :)
