Introducing Sew Simply Blessed- and a Free Giveaway!

I have shared on the blog a couple of times about my love for sewing.  It doesn't seem quite possible that I have been sewing for about 3 years now.  Not long after I got my sewing machine, my younger sister who was a newly married Navy wife at the time was in need of something to fill her extra time.  After my sister Lindsay and her husband Aaron were married they had about 3 months to live close to our family and then it was off to the first of their Naval destinations.  Although Lindsay met the move with a positive and willing attitude living away from family was no doubt hard and lonely at times.  I encouraged Lindsay to dive into sewing, and much like myself she did!  It wasn't long and I was getting text messages with pictures of the cute things that she was making.  Apron, purses, table runners just to name a few.



Fast forward a couple of years and Lindsay and Aaron are now in Washington with a baby girl.  After Lindsay had Clara and was experiencing the many firsts that come with being a mother she told me, "I'm not sure if I will ever have time to sew again".  I assured her that she would get into a routine and that she would get to start doing some of the things she loved again (other than caring for sweet Clara!).  God blessed her and she did!  Clara has become quite the easy baby girl.  This has allowed her Mama time to sew all sorts of new things and start a small home decor business.  

Lindsay has lots of variety.  
Sweet Clara makes the pillows look that much better!

Lindsay started and Etsy store called Sew Simply Blessed.  Her store motto is: Simply put: I love to sew and am blessed beyond measure!  Her pillows are so cute and she can even personalize!  Lindsay makes every thing by hand and will ship right to you. She is even going to bless one of our readers this week by giving away a hand made pillow like this!  Aren't those chicks so cute?

This is a hand stamped pillow.  The winner will get one like this.  If you don't win and would like one of your very own check out her shop she can personalize too!

To enter you must be a follower of our blog.  That means you have to put your email in the become a follower box on the blog page.  Then after you checkout the Sew Simply Blessed Etsy Store leave us a comment and tell us what your favorite item is!  We will end the giveaway on this Friday, August 9th.

Head over and show her some support!  You can find her at her Etsy Store and at her Facebook page Sew Simply Blessed.
