Reusable Sandwich Bag Set Giveaway!

Introducing a new Wee Essentials product:  Reusable, washable food baggies!

This week I’m giving away TWO sets of two adorable Easter themed baggies.  Read below for details on how to enter!

Each bag is made with two layers of prewashed, preshrunk cotton quilter’s fabric.  I’ve folded and serged the edges in a way that each baggie can be closed just like a plastic bag; by tucking in the top flap and folding the pocket over the opening.  Easier than it sounds, and it’s very secure compared to the plastic bags!

Perfect for dry and slightly moist foods – crackers, cheese, sliced apples, raisins, cookies, granola, and grapes!  Not pudding, though. 🙂

The bags currently come in two sizes, small (5″ by 5″ when folded) and medium (6″ by 7″ when folded.)  We’ll be adding a larger size soon.

 

ENTER TO WIN!

RULES: This giveaway starts on 3/12/2012 and goes until 3/14/2012 at 11:59:59 p.m. US Central Standard Time. You must be 18 to win and a resident of the US or Canada. Winners will be chosen using random.org to randomly select post numbers.

Yarny goodness from Storied Yarns!

Okay, I don’t usually do a lot of giveaways, but I couldn’t resist offering up this one. Jess of Storied Yarns is offering a $10 digital gift certificate to her store to help me celebrate 1000 fans.   She’s also having a sale through today – 20% off with the coupon code SUMMERTIME11 at her Artfire shop.  Don’t spin, but you see a batt or roving you just love?  For July only she’ll also spin it  just how you want it for free!

Jess dyes yarn and spinning fiber inspired by books, tv, and movies, and her colorways are just fantastic (I have a couple of them!)  Her pictures really don’t do justice to her items, but I can attest to the quality and beauty of everything she makes.  She’s about to have a knit-along with a very cute “winged” shawl and a shrug to choose from.  I’m knitting up the test shawl, and I think it’s going to be gorgeous.

So here’s one of the items I got from her:

"Finding Nemo" luxury batt by Storied Yarns

Beautiful, right?  On the inside is even more orange, and I can’t wait to spin it up. I bought a BFL braid from her a few months ago and it was so fun to spin.  My five-year-old son saw the beautiful blues and immediately claimed the yarn:

"I Dare You To Move" by Storied Yarns, spun by me

Anyway, sorry, I’m a little obsessed with pretty batts right now. 🙂  Storied Yarns has an artfire shop (you don’t need an account to buy) and an Etsy shop, which I linked above.

How to enter: Check out Jess’s shops, and if you want to win the gift certificate, comment below with what you think you might buy if you win the certificate!  I’ll give you 3 extra entries if you buy something from her shop, too – Just comment three times for your purchase.

Here are the rules:  You must be 18 to enter, you must live in the US and Canada to play.  If you live elsewhere, you can still play, but you will be responsible for shipping and customs duties and taxes if you win.  You must put your email address somewhere in your post (I believe you will have the option to put it in when you comment, and only I will see it.)  If there is no email address, or you do not answer my email saying you are a winner within 48 hours of the email, I will draw another name.

I will use random.org to generate the winning numbers, and I will go down the list of items from top to bottom.  So the first number I generate will win the first item here.  I don’t want to make this complicated. :)

The contest will run as soon as this post is published until Friday, July 22nd, at 11:59:59 PM Central Standard Time.

Good luck!

1000 Fan Celebration!

Now, we all know that if posting on this blog was my job, I’d be fired, but since Facebook has decided to get strict about exactly what you can and cannot do for contests on their site (and commenting on pictures to win is forbidden) we’ll be having the party over here.

I’m very excited that Wee Essentials has gained more than 1000 facebook fans!  I know that I haven’t always been the best business to have to deal with – there were a few months there that I’m still paying for, where life kinda bowled me over.  But I’ve been working really hard to set myself up to manage everything that needs to be done.  And I appreciate all my customers, who have been so understanding, enthusiastic, and just plain wonderful these past three years (three years!  Can you believe it?)
So on to the good stuff!

Here are the rules:  You must be 18 to enter, you must live in the US and Canada to play.  If you live elsewhere, you can still play, but you will be responsible for shipping and customs duties and taxes if you win.  You must put your email address somewhere in your post (I believe you will have the option to put it in when you comment, and only I will see it.)  If there is no email address, or you do not answer my email saying you are a winner within 48 hours of the email, I will draw another name.

All custom items *could* take up to 3 weeks to ship.

I am adding this portion in parentheses on 7/17/2011 at 8:10 CST: (In the event that a winner does not want the prize randomly drawn for them, substitution will be made in the form of a Wee Essentials gift certificate for the value of the prize won.)

And finally, only one entry per person, and each person will win only once.  All you have to do is comment, but if you want to say something you like about Wee Essentials products, I won’t be upset. 😉

I will use random.org to generate the winning numbers, and I will go down the list of items from top to bottom.  So the first number I generate will win the first item here.  I don’t want to make this complicated. 🙂

$20 Gift Certificate Giveaway for WeeEssentials

Just in case you haven’t seen it, hop on over to My Silly Monkeys – the owner of the blog is giving away a $20 gift certificate to my WeeEssentials Etsy shop, good for anything, including shipping!

WeeEssentials Wipe Solution Cubes (i.e. Soap bits.)

As many of you know, I carry all sorts of products that usually are bought at a premium price at the store only to be tossed in the trash.  My products, however, can be washed and reused – easing the strain on both landfills and your pocketbook!  I currently carry cloth nursing pads, cloth menstrual pads and cloth pantyliners and thong liners, cloth wipes for cloth diapering, and cloth wipe solution cubes, among many other things!  (And yes, that was absolutely link spamming for keywords! LOL  Hey, I have to get it in occasionally, right?)

If you don’t use these products and never will, you can always get them as gifts.  If you don’t use these products because you don’t understand them, leave a comment with your email or contact me through etsy!  I’d love to answer any questions you have about them.  And in my line of business, there is nothing too personal and nothing that won’t stay confidential.

So check out the giveaway!  I hope you win!  It ends on February 10th, so hurry!
