Sew Mama Sew is Sew Smart!..(say that three!)



The Sew Mama Sew May Give Away is SEW GOOD and SEW HUGE…I feel like I sat down to a huge meal and I ate the whole thing!!  And it was delicious…every single crumb! 

How DID Mama coordinate this thing?… THINK ABOUT IT…BY Monday morning Mama had organized (and PUT into categorizes!!) hundreds of Blog Give Aways with links back to these blogs!!!  I mean what a feat!!  Some of us didn’t post till the last minute and they are still posted and linked…I have enough problems doing one or two links per posting and here we are talking hundreds…boggles this small peanut brain!!  So THANK YOU, SEW MAMA SEW!!  You are SEW awesome!!  These are from us to YOU~



I LOVE a good Give Away but this is RIDICULOUS!!  I am exhausted!  It’s hard work going from blog to blog..first reading the blog, understanding what’s in the give away (not always in the picture!), getting the rules sorted out, writing comments that apply to this particular give away, jumping through hoops, being nice…you know…sucky but NOT TOO sucky and then posting the comments…AND then you lose your place…YIKES!!  Wow!!  I’m having a ball!!  Seriously it’s a lot of fun…sort of like going to a neighbourhood Garage Sale…or like Trick or Treating…but after awhile it becomes hard work…instead of writing a whole paragraph about how wonderful the give away is you write “I’m in!  Thanks!” and you’re off to the next house yelling “Trick or Treat”! blog! 

So tonight I have to sit down and read the Give Away comments left on my own blog…all 320 of them (so far)…wonder if there will be any…you know…sucky but not TOO sucky comments or will they be “I’m in, thanks”!!  Not to worry…I understand…boy do I understand!!  Besides…it’s a random draw!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Quilting (IF you have time…today is the last day for the give aways!)!

I checked out a few of the contest links, but most were for kids items and things I wouldn't use, so gave up.

i totally agree with you. i love the giveaway day but it's really a crazy time!!! i'm supposed to be working right now but i can't help but check out the blogs. ehehehe

ps - i never write "i'm in, thanks!". i write something different in every blog, which takes me even longer, but i wouldn't want it any other way. it's not about winning something, it's about meeting people. right?

I was so tired on Monday night, I felt like I had been in a marathon. And I still had not visited everyone :-( Yes Sew, Mama, Sew deserves a prize. What an undertaking.

I second your Kudos to SMS!!! I am on the S's and at yours - i hope it's not closed, it's taken me three days to get to the S's and only for the sewing things! HEEHEE

off to your giveaway!

I am flat out exhausted from checking out all the blogs I could! But I found several gems that I'm now following so that's good.
