Sewlebrity Crush Recap and $100 Giveaway from The Fat Quarter Shop!

Giveaway now closed, thank you!
Winner is: #51.

Thank you so much to all my Sewlebrity Crushes for sharing your amazing sewing skills this month! And thanks to all who stopped by this blog to check them out. It was such a fun series to follow, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had such lovely, creative bloggers be part of my series. I can't thank you enough!

Our sponsor, The Fat Quarter Shop, is so awesome because... they are giving away a $100 Gift Card! Gotta LOVE that! First, here's a recap of all the tutorials from Sewlebrity Crush, followed by the Giveaway, and then an exciting announcement of the next big thing on my blog (a really fun contest) coming up for August!

Sewlebrity Crush Recap:
200










Giveaway:
I have a big fat huge crush on The Fat Quarter Shop! I love them because their behind-the-scenes staff are so fun and friendly, plus the fabric they carry a huge and amazing selection of fabric. There is nothing I don't love about the Fat Quarter Shop! One LUCKY winner is going to love them too!
 
Who wants a chance to win a $100 Gift Certificate to The Fat Quarter Shop?!?!

To Enter:
I want this to be easy for you, so I'm asking that you do two things, but you only need to leave ONE comment, WITH a method of contact. 

1. Like The Fat Quarter Shop on Facebook.
2. Follow the Family Ever After blog via RSS or GFC (blue button on right sidebar).

Extra Entries:
If you'd like more than one entry, you can do any of these, and leave ONE comment each.
Follow Family Ever After via...
  Follow The Fat Quarter Shop via...
twitter
share this giveaway link via fb, twitter, blog, etc

Notes:
Giveaway ends August 8 at midnight.
It IS open internationally!
Must be 18 or older to enter.
Chances of winning depend on the number of entries.

Announcement:
While my Sewlebrity Crushes took over my blog for the month... I've been working behind the scenes on my laundry, organizing my house, and setting up a new contest! Are you ready to hear about it?

---drumroll please---


It is called Cre8 + 2 = Me and You. I'm so excited about this! My mom helped me come up with the idea, and my husband came up with the name for it. Hopefully it will make sense to you after I explain... it is a contest designed to inspire you to spend time with a loved one this summer (most likely a child, but it can be anyone). The point is to inspire you to spend time creating something-- anything-- while creating memories. 

You are not going to believe the lineup of judges and prizes. All that, plus the guildelines, will be announced next Wednesday (August 8th). In the meantime, there are just a few precious weeks of summer left. If you haven't already, go do something creative with your special person!

P.S.
One last thing.... I am guest posting at The Ribbon Retreat today! I'm sharing a tutorial and giveaway for this Bow Holder! Click HERE to see it and enter to win! :)
