Beanbag Giveaway!


I've had several sets of beanbags crowding my craft shelves at home just waiting to be given as gifts or sold. Anyone remember I mentioned them awhile ago?
Well, it takes a lot to get me motivated to do anything that may involve a trip to the post office or time in front of the computer setting up online accounts (actually, it takes a lot to get me motivated for most things), so I thought I'd try something fun to see if it will double as motivation to sell some of my work.
A beanbag giveaway!
This should let me know if any of you out there are at all interested in having a set of these toys and will get me to the post office.
Please comment on this post if you would like to be entered in a random drawing to receive a set of my handmade beanbags. This set to be exact. They are cotton fabric bags, lined, and filled with rice. They come with a card full of suggestions on how to play with them. My kids have been enjoying our homemade beanbags for the last few years and we've given them as gifts to pretty much everyone we know.
At the end of this week, on Friday, I will randomly select one person from the comment section. I will post the winner at the end of the day.
Thanks for playing with me!

Oh goodness your beanbags are adorable! How could I take them apart when they would look so cute on the shelf! Actually, I love beanbags and wouldn't be able to keep them tied up for long. Something about their weight and texture... Oh, and the fact that I have five little children who would love to play with them!

I love beanbags. Recently I've been cutting a few holes in empty diaper boxes and letting my little ones toss stuffed animals at the holes. It is our version of corn-holing! Bean bags would be a great addition to our little game.
