May Tote Give-Away... "Treasure Island" Contest Closed

It's time to celebrate spring! The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, bees are humming and there's a tote to give-away! Earlier this month in a poll I asked my readers to choose the color of the tote for the give-away. Overwhelmingly the color "Caribbean Turquoise" was chosen. I have to admit I have a soft place in my heart for the turquoise color of the ocean in the Caribbean. Yum.

I chose some wondrous Amy Butler fabric from her Daisy Chain line to comprise this month's give-away, and I christened the Hang Up "Treasure Island." The lush floral fabrics and soothing color schemes in these fabrics remind me of the islands and, most certainly, the winner will carry a little bounty or treasure in this tote as she puts on her Hang Up to go shopping! Thus ... "Treasure Island" is a perfect name for this creation.

Here are the rules for the contest. Uhhh... Before I give you the rules, I feel impressed to reiterate that I will not make exceptions to these rules. I don't mean to sound huffy or persnickety, but every time I have a give-away I have contestants who try to reinvent my rules, but I'm here to tell you it doesn't work. I'm a stickler when it comes to playing fair -- just ask my kids. Please follow the rules and you'll be entered into the contest. If you don't follow the rules, your comment will be kicked out on its hiney. Trust me on that one. I'm a mother of seven -- I know how to kick a hiney. (Figuratively speaking, of course.) Alrighty then -- let's have some fun...

Here are the rules and conditions of the Give-Away...

1.) The participants must live within the continental U.S. I will provide the postage.

2.) Each person that makes a comment below will have her name entered into the contest.

If you put a "shout out" on your blog about the contest, and come back and let me know through another comment, I will enter your name two more times.

4.) All those who enter this contest and have already (by May 13th) commented on my blog in the month of May will have their name added one more time! Thank you for your kind comments!

5.) No anonymous comments, please. If you are not a close friend or relative whose email I already possess, you must leave an email address or blog that I can visit. Private bloggers must leave their email address. If I don't have any way to contact you, your name will not be eligible.

6.) This tote is not meant for resale. Only those intending to use the tote for personal use may register to win.

This contest will run through midnight Tuesday, May 19th. Wednesday morning, May 20th, the winner of the contest will be announced.

Good luck!
