You Can Make This ~ Giveaway ~ CLOSED

I am so excited about this giveaway. I was lucky enough to interact on-line with Kim, the founder of You Can Make This at Rock Your Blog with Jessica Smith. Kim was able to share her excitement about her company with me. Kim is a mom who wanted to provide downloadable instructions on how to make just about anything from children's clothing and jewelry, to handbags, home decor and more. What makes You Can Make This unique is that these instructions are written by everyday moms {just like you and me} who have an expertise in an area. They are written in a way that makes you feel as if your friend is right next to you leading the way. They all have detailed instructions and step-by-step full-color photos so even the most "craft-challenged" {ME} person can make these items for their home and families. I was really excited to check out the site since I just recently learned how to make tutus, I thought what else could I try?... By joining to receive their FREE newsletter I received a free ebooks to try out for myself. You can subscribe to their newsletter here and receive all the product instructions pictured below for FREE, plus an on-line video and digital scrapbooking frame.


Along with the free instruction manuals that come with the newsletter I also have been given the opportunity to share a $50 bundle of even more DIY instructions with one lucky reader.


To enter the contest go to You Can Make This and find one thing you would love to learn how to make. Come back to this post and leave me a comment telling me what you found. I personally can't wait to start learning how to make the "She Loves Me, She Loves Me KNOT" Handbag. There are several others that I want to try with my daughter but I believe the handbag will be first. Now remember, even if you have never sewn before, You Can Make This is a site that is designed to truly show you how. They BELIEVE you REALLY CAN make these things!

Now of course this is a giveaway so there are also extra ways to gain entries. You must first post a comment letting me know an item you want to learn to make before working on additional entries.


Additional entries:

1. Tweet this blog post announcing giveaway and leave twitter link in comment

2. Subscribe to my newsletter in the upper left hand sidebar so you can be the first to see my handbag once it is complete, then leave additional comment

3. Blog about this giveaway on your own blog and post link within comments

Contest ends January 31st at midnight. Please make sure I have a way to contact you either through your blog profile or email address incase you are the winner!

I love the fun fleece animal hats. I also think it is great that they have a "boys" section because many companies like this aim only at girls, but boys like and can benefit from crafts, too (and moms of boys like to make things for their boys).
