Gussy Up! a giveaway


UPDATE: The winner of $30 Credit to the Gussy Shop is commenter #40, The Sweetest Petunia! Congrats!

We sleepily poured into the Cracker Barrel across the street from Gaylord Opryland Hotel. My (In)Courage girlfriends and I ordered the biscuits, the butter, the coffee, with a table full of gift bags through the corner of our eyes and a gorgeous new face among us.

Maggie had killer hair, tussled, her own look, a wallet in her purse that was handmade – that eclectic touch.

Kristen and I wrapped ourselves up in good conversation about babies tucked in all corners of the world, and then the gifts came out, with Ooos and Ahhs. Each of us received her very own ruffly Gussy laptop bag from Maggie.

It was so sweetly unexpected, so what I want for you is to experience the gift, too. Check out her sweet blog. What would you do with a $30 credit to the Gussy Shop? Let me know in the comments, and you’ll be entering yourself for that $30 credit.

That’s all you have to do! Of course, for extra entries, subscribe to my feed in your reader; subscribe to Gussy feed in your reader, or tweet this:

Gussy Up! A giveaway for $30 credit to the Gussy Shop from @GussySews {via @amberrunsamuck} http://tr.im/Qur2

Leave a comment for each way you’ve qualified yourself for an entry.

And here’s one more thing you can do. Follow Kristen Welch on her journey with Compassion International to Kenya. You may subscribe to her feed for one entry, and if you choose to support a Compassion Child in Kenya through her blog, comment three times with “Compassion in Kenya.” Please be praying for that team of bloggers as they write what they experience. Pray for their health and their hearts. Consider changing a child’s life.

This Gussy Giveaway ends Sunday, March 7 at noon, Central. I’ll announce the winner soon thereafter. Spread the word!

but then i'd need a pouch... and a laptop bag too (when she makes the oversize ones!)

Must we choose one thing? I've adored all things Gussy since I first saw that ruffle! I think I would put it toward a laptop bag or the large zippered pouch - all the things rolling around in the bottom of my bag are begging to be corralled.

I could really use a new purse/shoulder bag/laptop bag. With a 2 year old boy, a 1 year old boy, and weeks away from the arrival of our baby girl, "gussying" myself up is fairly low on the priority list. My purse is literally falling apart! And I've been dreaming of a fun new shoulder bag!!
