December Give-Away / Give-Away: "Christmas Dreams"

How I love pine & plaid. Both got incorporated into this beautiful holiday Hang-Up! I've decided to have my December Give-Away a little early so the recipient of this contest can enjoy this bag all season long. I've never had a holiday handbag, but honestly it should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe! ;o) Don't you think?

In the title of this post it lists this contest as a "Give-Away/Give-Away!" That's because this contest is going to be a little different. You will still be submitting your name for a drawing via a comment below, BUT the lucky winner will have this tote sent to a person of her/his choosing. That's why I say it's a "Give-Away" (from me to you) "Give-Away" (from you to someone of your choosing). When the winner is announced, I will get the address of the intended recipient from the winner and send it directly to that person with a note from the winner! Think of the possibilities -- this tote could be an early Christmas present to a beloved relative or best friend of your choice! (Men - Feel free to enter the contest for a special woman in your life!)

This Give-Away/Give-Away Contest will run until noon on Saturday, November 22nd . By 1pm that day the winner of the contest will be announced.

Here are the specifics of the contest...
  • Make a comment below and your name will be submitted into the contest.
  • Put a shout-out on your blog, by noon Friday, and your name will go in two more times. (Make sure you let me know in a comment that you have posted a shout out.)
  • In your comment, please mention the first name of the person and your relationship to her of the intended recipient should you win the drawing. Also, leave a short message of why you would like this person to win this tote.
  • The recipient of this tote must live in the continental U.S. or Canada. (I will provide postage.)
  • No anonymous comments, please. If you are not a blogging friend or relative that I already know and love, please make sure your name is listed on the comment and that you've left a way for me to contact you (either an email address or the address of your blog). If I don't have any way to contact you, your name will not be eligible.
  • This item is not meant for resale -- only for personal use.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a joyous Christmas season!

Oh I love that bag!

I would give it to my momma, Lisa. She is a huge seasonal bag fan! The reason you ask? B/c I love my momma. She is a staple in my book of life and she is needing some extra love right now.

I am gonna go do a sticky post now! So hit me 3 times, well don't hit me, but you know what I meant. ;)

I would love my daughter to win this beatiful tote! She is quite jealous of her sister's Tote that I bought for her birthday!
The Jungle tote is the best!!!Well maybe.....

Bonecrusher said...

My name is Seth. I married your daughter a little over 3 years ago. I certainly hope you know how to get a hold of me for when I win.

I would give the tote to said daughter, my wife, Shannon. She is, in all honesty, the most amazing woman I have ever met. She lifts me and helps me when no one else can. She also really likes these totes.

Jan said...

I'm in! This is lovely and i would give it to my daughter-in-law. I think it's right up her alley.

As always, perfectly beautiful!

Adam & Wendy said...

I also put a shout out on my blog.

Adam & Wendy said...

Love the bag. Put me in the drawing too please. I would give it to my friend, Lisa. She has been a great friend and support to me, especially the last couple of months.

Maryam said...

I would like it sent to Kory Deines, Grace's 1st grade teacher at Hygiene. I am so pleased with her hard work and the impact she is making on my little girl. I am pretty out of the loop I guess, but I recently heard some "mom" gossip that they want to call a parent's meeting and talk about their issues, sounds really negative. I made my mind up right then and there that I won't be a part of that... I just support her and feel thankful that she is here each day! love m

Mark said...

Put my name in the drawing. If I win I would like the purse sent to my mom, Beth.

Angela said...

Put my name in your drawying. I would like to give it to my mom, Jane. She loves totes and always comments on mine.

I will try to shout out on my NEW blog. I will let you know when I do!

MiaKatia said...

I would send the tote to Brenda, my step mom. She is always doing so much for my Dad and my brothers and I think she would love a little extra Christmas cheer this season to let her know how much I love and appreciate her.

MiaKatia said...

I put a shout out on my blog! Two more for me :)

Melody said...

I would give this to my sister-in-law. I live 2 hours away from family and when I go there her and my brother let me stay at their house. This would be a way to show appreciation to her!

GinGin said...

I put a shout out on my blog. Add my name two more times. Thanx

Melody said...

I left a shout out on my blog. Thanks for the give away/give away! That's a unique idea! I love the color and pattern choices you made!

Kristen said...

I know my mother-in-law, Helen would just love this. It's perfect for that "hard to shop for in-law"! I'll be posting it on my blog too!

Brittney said...

So cute! I would definitely give it to my sis-in-law Wendy. She's always talking about how much she likes these bags. Thanks Aunt Suzanne!

Hi Suzanne,

Thank you.

kisa said...

What a sweet Give-Away o Give-Away! I would like to win this contest on behalf of my BFF Jenny who is just such a fan of your fabulous totes. Also, I like the cute bird in the tree behind the tote in the picture. :)

playsdolls said...

Hi Suzanne,
I put a shout out on my blog,if I won I would like to give this awesome tote to my daughter Jessica.She is a busy mother of four who gives all to her children and not herself and she could use a nice surprise.She loves totes and she would really love this one.

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Suzanne, that is just adorable! If for some reason I won, I would give it to my Mom.
She loves totebags, and since I can not be with her for Christmas, this might cheer her up. Great contest.

Angela said...

I did do a shout out on my blog. Not sure I did it right, but it is there.
Thanks

Kristi Chase said...

I would give it to my step-mom Susan. 1st because she has had a hard year while trying to get pregnant and now she is! 2nd because of all the women in my life I think she would be the most likely to like a holiday themed bag.

I put a link up on my side bar.

Marci said...

I would love to give this tote to my mom. Not only does she constantly envy mine, she also deserves it. She can't always be there to help me physically, but she is always there for a shoulder to cry on and rejoice with. She is my best friend and always will be.

Marci said...

I put a shout out on my blog. Oh also my I would love to give this to my mom, because the purse she is carrying around is hideous.

Nancy said...

This is such a beautiful tote. It reminds me of my daughter-in-law Anika; the colors are perfect for her. Her love touches all of us for the good. I would give it to her.

Kristine said...

Wow you are doing some fun give-aways lately! Different than just "enter to win". I like it!

Anyway, I'd love to enter this give-away so I could give this tote to my mom, Liz. She would have many uses for it and I know she would love it! I would love her to have something beautiful. Merry Christmas!

Kristine said...

Shout out given!

Angie said...

What a very nice bag! The colors go so well together!

I would be happy to send it to my cute sister in law. Mainly because I love her and because she would really appreciate it! Her name is Jennifer!

Angie said...

chock me up for 2 please! I've done a shout out on my side bar!

Edna said...

Just found your site and your bags are gorgeous! Count me in for the drawing. The bag would go to my friend Kristina.

Edna said...

Shout-out is on my blog!! Please enter me two more times. Oh and I forgot to say that I would like Kris to receive the bag since she is going through a rough time in her life dealing with a marriage break-down and custody issues. A pretty bag would help cheer her and perhaps bring a bit more Christmas spirit to her.

Oops, let me try again please, I would like to be entered in the drawing. I would send this bag to my daughter Megan, she's a bag freak and would live this holiday one.

Omgirl said...

I would love to give this tote to my sister Jennie for Christmas. In fact, every time I see one of your totes I think, "I need to get that for Jennie!" Why? Because that woman loves patterns more than any other human being I know. The more patterns together, the better. Every single concoction you come up with is SO up her ally. I could buy her one every month and she would still never have enough. But I'm not that rich. So for now, I'm just hoping to win one. Thanks, Suzanne!

Hallman Family said...

I would love to win the bag. I would give it to my sister Angela (coment left on your blog earlier). I found this shout-out on her blog (Angela).

I messed up my post so I deleted. I may be too late but am trying. This bag is just adorable and would be a perfect pick me up for my mom who is caring for my dad daily. Dad has cancer with 3 to 6 months left....a bag really can't cure that but this pretty little bag would at least bring a smile to her face. Something I haven't seen in a very long time.

devri said...

I'm in and I will shout you out tonight!!!

Kim said...

GREAT BAG!!!! I would like to send it to my sister, Lanette. We do not see each other very much and she loves new bags. This bag can replace the one I gave her for her birthday a few years ago.

Pick me--Pick me!!!!

Sally in SC said...

I don't have a blog (still a lurker) but I do have a Mama and she would love this bag. She is coming to the end of her second round of chemo and the bag might make people look at her fancy tote instead of her "lacking hair" head!

Kathleen said...

This is such a nice idea for a giveaway, especially at this time of year. I'd have it sent to my sister-in-law, who has a little girl and is always needed extra bags to tote around baby things. Thanks so much!

Ginny Worden said...

Lovely bag, please include me in your little draw. Thank you.

Wanda said...

This is a beautiful bag....and would make a fabulous Christmas gift for my MIL.

I love all the fabric choices too.

secondofwett said...

I missed the deadline to post on my blog about this lovely tote...but, I'd love to be able to give it to my mother-in-law....it would be perfect for her!

tami said...

That is a beautiful bag. I would love to win that. Sign me up.

Shannon said...

I would like to give the tote to one of Seth's grandmothers, Ruth. She is an inspiration to me and a sweet lady. She would love this bag and cherish it forever.

Mom To Six said...

Ooohh...I love it!!!

Mary said...

THat is a great tote. It would be great for my daughter to help her corall all the stuff that is accumulating during her wedding planning. THen on the big day to corall all the things she needs with her.

Bobbie Bentneedle said...

What a great bag - I'm wondering what time zone you are in, since I just found this. Happy Holidays, in any case!

The Duke Family said...

I hope I'm not too late. This bag is so cute!
