Giveaway Day (week!) was an amazing way to start off December, but that’s just a smidge of what we have in store for you. Here’s a little “head’s up” of what’s on the calendar.

On Monday we kick off the Ruby Star Wrapping Contest. If you’ve been participating in the Ruby-Star Wrap-Along, then you’re ready. If not, you still have some wrapping to do, right? Just remember to take photos of your gorgeously-wrapped gifts, blog about it, then enter the contest! To entice you, here is the GRAND Prize! (There are three other amazing prize packages as well.)


  • Copy of Ruby Star Wrapping
  • $50 Gift Certificate to Sew,Mama,Sew!
  • 6 Green Bee Patterns
  • 1 fat quarter pack Micro Mod fabric
  • 1 vintage rotary phone from Melody
  • 1 yard Melody Miller trim
  • 6 Ruby Star Sparkle fat quarters
  • 1 bundle washi tape

On Tuesday we’ll announce another contest we’re involved in called, Stuff Your Crafty Stocking! With 14 winners and over $2000 in prizes, you won’t want to miss it. You might even win a sewing machine or a $100 gift certificate to Sew,Mama,Sew! All you’ll have to do is like some Facebook pages–easy peasy! It’s a fun way to increase your chances of getting what you really want for the holidays. (And by that we mean fabric.)

On Wednesday, and for the rest of the month, we’re going to celebrate family time! We always look forward to the winter break so we can get some fun craft time in with the kids. We have many wonderful guest contributors lined up with unique projects to do during your holiday down-time. Plus, you’ll have the chance to win some excellent books about crafting with kids! We’re really looking forward to it and hope you are too.
