happy blogiversary to me!

::THE GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED::


Today is my first blogiversary! I started this blog because I felt out of place posting my projects on my family blog. So the Sutton Grace blog was born. Named after my daughter Sutton because I just really like her name! I didn't expect anyone to read it, that has been an awesome surprise. You guys make blogging so fun!

To thank you all for reading and commenting and just being plain awesome I am having my first ever giveaway! In an effort to spread the love there will be three items given away:

Giveaway item #1- Apron.
I LOVE this apron. I have made many aprons in my day but this
one is my favorite. Once it was finished and I tried it on I was tempted to
keep it for myself. I won't. But I will be going back to IKEA and
getting more fabric to make one just for me.




Giveaway item #2- A set of lavender sachets.
These smell SO good! Perfect for your car, closet or your 'unmentionables' drawer.


Giveaway item #3- Yellow ruffled wristlet (maybe I am in love with this fabric).
It is just the right size for your phone, keys, small wallet and a lip gloss
or use it to corral small items inside a bigger bag.




HOW TO WIN:
1. Leave a comment on this post. Please make sure there is a way to contact you (email address linked to your blogger profile or leave your email address in the comment) I would hate to not be able to contact the winners!

2. Become a follower and leave an additional separate comment telling me you did so. Or, if you are already a follower leave an additional separate comment telling me so.

3. Post about this giveaway on YOUR blog, then leave another separate comment with a link.

The winners will be randomly chosen next Friday, February 5th.

GOOD LUCK and happy weekend!
