I am Planning A Giveaway Day Every Month! We Shall Call It The Distraction Giveaway!

If you have been following me long enough, you know that this blog is a little bit personal, a few parts running, quite a bit of quilting, and random other things thrown in as I see fit.

I'm Doing Stuff

Now on to the personal side of things for today's post. We have been trying to get pregnant for that past 15 months (not that I am counting or anything) and each month I think to myself, 'Self, if it doesn't work out this month, maybe I should buy something to cheer me up'. And each month I do not buy myself something to cheer myself up. It just sounds like something that I would end up hating seeing. A collection of 15 awesome pairs of shoes that mean 15 months I didn't get pregnant. OR 15 really pretty bracelets that each time I wore them, I would be reminded of what an epic failure at being a woman I am. I just don't think I would like it very much.

I love my necklaces, just do not really wear them all that often.
SO I figured that buying tangible things just doesn't make me happy enough. BUT I did figure out what I do love. I love making people happy and I love a good, clean sewing room. Are you starting to see where this is all going to go? :)

I am going to give away something lovely from my sewing room each month that I do not get pregnant. Haha, what a weird type of giveaway right? BUT it will help me clean out my sewing room, give something pretty to someone else (as well as give them a smile), distract me (I am all about distractions) and maybe in some sort of teensy tiny way, bring awareness to infertility. Just think of the 7 degrees of separation with Kevin Bacon, only imagine infertility. Yup. It is everywhere.

This month is just giveaway nation!! I participated in Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and then I was a part of the bloghop for Bari J's newest line Bijoux, and now my little blog's monthly giveaway!! I will have to think of some sort of clever name for it, but in the meantime we can just call it:
The Distraction (aka SHARK WEEK) Giveaway!!

How do we feel about the chance to win this?: I used Farmdale Blossom by Alexander Henry in gray with an deep orange clasp. The inside is a beige linen. I will open up the giveaway when  Shark Week starts, but just so that you have it on your radar. I will keep you posted, but here is some eye candy in the meantime.

Pretty little coin purse!

And BTW: Newest favorite blog: 99 Fertility Tips. Funny.


  1. I know what it's like to want to be a mama, you'll be kept in my thoughts Meesh! <3

  2. Hang in there! (I'm in the boat too.) And I like where you're going with the making people smile bit...I think it worked over here.

  3. Well, I for one hope you get pregnant sooner rather than later, so while I would love to win the purse, I think I'd rather you get to be a mom in the near future. :)

  4. Infertility is everywhere though you feel like you're all alone...especially when you see every pregnant woman in your town. Me-five years, multiple surgeries, a donor egg, one son and out of the blue-one daughter. I believe everyone who wants to parent has a child waiting for them. I wish you all the luck.
