It’s in the Bag! + a giveaway.

Posted by Michelle on October 11th, 2010 . Filed under: Birthday, Gift Packaging, Giveaway, It's in the Bag!, My Mind's Eye .

Happy New Week, Girls!


OK – so here’s the thing.  I gave this girl at work a birthday present….the jelly bean bag that you see here.  She liked the bag so much that she asked me to make 10 of them for her, like for cash money!  And I don’t know about you – but I love me some cash money.  So I finally finished all 10 of them.  And what I’m gonna do is share them with you this week…2 a day.  And what you’ll get in return for sitting through my little bag parade is a chance to win a bag of something.  Well, you know what, it’s not going to fit in a bag.  So you’re going to win a box of something…a BIG BOX of something.  So comment today through Friday, I’ll announce the winner on Saturday.  Like Jeff Probst says:  wanna know what you’re playing for?
