My First Giveaway!

CONTEST NOW CLOSED!

I mentioned yesterday that I have a new ad on my sidebar - it is for this precious etsy store!

And the owner was nice enough to donate this precious thing for a GIVEAWAY! I'm sort of excited about this, not just because it's the first giveaway I've been able to do on this site, but because the pouch she's donating is SUPER cute!


Her description of the pouch: The perfect little pouch by Peanutbeary’s! There are so many uses for this little pouch it is impossible to mention them all! Here are just a few; teacher gift, hostess thank you gift, a little pool pouch to hold money & sunscreen, a pouch inside the large diaper bag to hold your mommy essentials, a lovely bridesmaid pouch to match your wedding colors, a little non-disposable snack pouch (think green!), travel pouch for containing those Ziploc bottles through security etc… It is made of the highest quality fabric and materials. The size is 6 X 9. The pouch is lined with a coordinating fabric. The top has a zipper closure so you don’t have to worry about things falling out. Sold in gift sets also that would include a matching tissue holder and bookmark! Way cool and way cute!


All you need to do for a chance to win this is tell me (in a comment on this post) how you would use this pouch if you won it. I can think of about 10 different ways to use it right off of the top of my head! I am going to close the comments at midnight (central time) on Sunday. I will pick the winner at that point using random.org (so if you're the 100th person to comment, and random.org pops out a 100, you've just won yourself a pouch!). The winning post HAS to contain a way to use the pouch though!

Alrighty, post away (but just one per person, please)! Good luck!

Comments on this contest are now closed! Please check back again soon for another contest!

  1. I love it!! Perfect for bringing make up essentials in my hand bag, holding "women things" as my husband calls them, or coupons, or keeping my bank receipts... um I could go on and on. What a great giveaway! Hope I win!

  2. SUPER CUTE!!! I would use it for make up and other toiletries. My husband is in training at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia right now so every weekend I make the drive from Birmingham, Alabama to see him and all of my make up and that kind of stuff is in a million different little bags because I don't have anything big enough for all of it... The pouches are super cute and I really hope I win! If not I will have to talk my husband into letting me buy one!

  3. I love it! Since everything gets lost in the bottom of my purse, this little pouch would be great! It would hold my extra bobby pins, chapstick, and of course the germ X!! :) Great idea for your first giveaway!

  6. Cute pouch! This would be perfect to make a little first aid kit to have on hand this summer while at the park or on day trips....with 4 kids you can never have enough antibiotic ointment and bandaides!

  9. That is a really cute pouch. I think I would use it for mints and pocket change. Things I need in a hurry and don't want to search for!

  10. Love it! I think it would be cute to use this little pouch for a snack bag in my daughters lunch box! How cute would it be to hold her little snacks! And I'm sure it would be the talk of the lunch table!

  11. Love it! (Found you on the Blog Frog) I think I would use it to keep treats for my almost one year old daughter in my purse!

  12. So many ideas come flooding, I don't even know where to begin but, I must. Bandaids and anitseptic wipes for my many kiddies and their numerous bumps, scrapes and bruises. Snacks for said kiddies and me! Contain my "girl" items or to give to my daughter for the same.

    Just to name a few; there are lots more ideas bouncing in my head.

  13. I love the print on this bag. I think I would definitely use it for toiletries/makeup and junk for when I travel. I travel quite a bit to see my family (about six hours away from me).

    I have a giveaway going on too if you want to hop on over to Prairie Tales. :-)

  15. Well pink and green are my favorite colors and my sorority colors but I would definitely use it at the pool all summer long so I don't lose anything. Too Cute!

  16. How cute! I would use it in my beach bag to hold snacks for AG... or I could use it to hold our sunscreen, ponytail holders, and hair clips while we are at the pool... or I could use it to hold my "special time" products in my purse... or I could attach it to AG's stroller (colors match and everything!!) and put her snacks, lip gloss, stickers, crayons, etc - ANYTHING to keep her busy while in the stroller!! What a FUN giveaway!!! I could use it for lots of things!!

  17. Love the colors! I would use it in my diaper bag so some smaller items don't get lost in the bottom! I'm finding that my diaper bag is also becoming my handbag. Yikes. BTW, found you on BlogFrog by way of MckMama. :)

  18. How adorable! I would definitely use it for some more "personal purse" items. Nothing worse than those things falling out of your purse when you are trying to pay at Target. LOL

  19. Very cute!! saw your post on Mckmama's community page! I LOVE this pouch...I think that I am always in need of a place to keep clean up stuff for my van. I would use it to keep a small thing of wipes, trash bags, ziplock baggies, tissues, a small towel....the essentials you need if you are trying to clean up a small (or BIG) mess in the car. I don't always want to pack all that in my diaper bag so it would be great to have a cute pouch to keep it all organized and in ONE place in my van!

  20. i would use it to store my scrap ribbon from all my bow making in, or use it to store my kids medicine when we travel...

  21. Love it. Would use to hold everything personal in my purse. Great contest.

  22. What an adorable pouch!! I would use it to keep my littlest one's snacks separate in the diaper bag. (She has special dietary restrictions!)
    So thoughtful!!

  23. I would definatley us it to carry my feminine products so that maybe my son would stop pulling them out of my purse while in line at the grocery store..in front of bag boy/man!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would use it for the children to keep change in for the pool this summer. Super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Definitely the perfect little make-up or "necessities" pouch for my purse! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would put all my stuff (money, cell phone, makeup,etc.) in it and then drop it down in my diaper bag so I could find my stuff easier! I know this was already said...but it is totally what I would use it for!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cute!! I would use it to help organize when I pack for my honeymoon!! (95 days and counting!) It would be perfect for storing "feminine things" (which I seriously hope I don't need on my honeymoon!) or chapstick, sunscreen, cash, and sunglasses in my beach bag!

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is the cutest little pouch! So... I kind of have a lip balm obsession, so I would use this pouch to hold all of my many glosses, lipsticks, chapsticks, etc. so they aren't rolling around loose in my purse. It would be a great way to help keep me organized!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can totally think of TONS of different things I would use this pouch for, but I think I would either put my make-up in it or some "girl" things (for in my closet) at work...I'm a teacher, so I have to sometimes be a little discreet!! :)

    Super fun and adorable!

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  30. Oh gosh, I'd use it to store all MY stuff in the diaper bag so I'm not digging around for keys and phones and iPods etc. which never seem to stay where I want them to stay!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would use it for the essentials including my phone, notepad, pens, iPod, etc.

    It's so cute! :)

  32. I am a nurse so I would use it to hold my penlight, scissors, hemostats, pens, pencils, and all the other things that are currently floating at the bottom of my nursing bag!


    And if I'm single but have 2 jobs, does that make me a dink?? ha ha (the one isn't very many hours at all!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. This bag is too cute and oh the possibilities. I would probably use it for summer stuff (sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm) - but if my daughter had her way it would be her's. LOL. Bless her heart, her obsession with bags and purses is as bad as her mom's! Thanks for the give away!

  34. What an adorable little pouch! I would use it to cart around match box cars for my little boys. Oh, who am I kidding! I'd totally use it for myself for make-up or traveling essentials or, you know, "girly stuff" ;)...if you know what I mean!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's so cute! I would use it to hold my "at home" teaching supplies. I'm a fourth grade teacher and I'm always digging through the drawer at home to find a paper clip, highlighter, post it note, etc since normally, all of my school supplies are at school. This would keep all of those needed supplies together and organized.

  36. It's so cute! I think I would use it to hold my make-up in my purse, or to hold small teaching supplies.
