"You Can Make This" Giveaway

We were so excited when www.YouCanMakeThis.com asked us to host this giveaway. We love this site and all the products on it. The patterns and instructions are really easy to follow and easy to make.

www.YouCanMakeThis.com
was created by a mom who wanted to provide downloadable instructions on how to make just about anything from children's boutique clothing and jewelry, to handbags, home decor, and more. What makes the site unique is that these instructions are written by everyday moms who have an expertise in an area. They are written in a way that makes you feel you have a friend sitting right next to you, telling you what to do next. They all have detailed instructions and step-by-step full-color photos so even the most "craft-challenged" person can make these items for their homes and families.
In fact, if you would like to try out some products for free, you can sign up for their FREE newsletter. After sign-up, you'll receive a link to your email inbox asking you to confirm subscription. Simply click on that link, and you'll receive all of these product instructions pictured here, plus an online video and digital scrapbooking frames. http://www.youcanmakethis.com/ycmt-newsletter.htm


Would you like to win a $50 bundle of even more DIY instructions? The winner of this giveaway will receive a $50 bundle package of the following patterns and instructions: A Child/Adult Apron Set, Women's Reversible Wrap Skirt, The "She Loves Me She Loves Me KNOT" Handbag, The Reversible Patchwork Bucket Hat, Easy-Fit Pants, and Boys Ties. Remember, even if you've never sewn before, the site believes that you REALLY CAN make these things!

To enter this awesome giveaway, all you have to do is go check out www.YouCanMakeThis.com and come back to this post, and leave a comment about something you'd like to learn how to make. To earn an extra entry, sign up for the free You Can Make This newsletter. Be sure to let us know if you sign up for the newsletter so we can give you that extra entry. All entries must be received by 11:59pm on Thursday, February 12th. We will announce the winner on Friday, February 13th!
Good Luck!
