A second chance


I finished the flags from my previous giveaway! They were SO fun to make! Kayleen, Rebecca, and Mary Kate, you will be getting them very soon!
And, since I had so much fun making them, and since I signed up on 2 other blogs to win something, I am going to do another one! And also, I am a little self-centered, and the comments have been a little slack this past week. Probably because I was out of town, but still.
OK, so, here is the game: I will make 10 (TEN!) more hand crafted items (probably something small and quilted). All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite holiday or season (the item you get will be based around whatever you say, so I guess it doesn't have to be your favorite- just whatever holiday or season you would like a decoration for). And also, bringing in the self-centeredness, you also have to say one of your favorite posts from my blog.
This will be fun (at least for me!). I am going to disqualify Kayleen, Mary Kate and Rebecca, since they won the last one, but you guys can feel free to comment anyway! ;)
Edited to add: I will pick 10 names from those who leave comments! You can still win even if you aren't in the first 10.

yay! I'm going to try to win again :) The season I need something for is thanksgiving/Fall. My favorite post is your birthday post for Abigail.

Adam and Lisa said...

My favorite season in fall! and my favorite post is the You Can Choose - especially since I got to witness a "you can choose" moment first hand!!

Kelly said...

I always want to win something, are you kidding? And I just love Halloween, you know? Ooooh, so scary!

Merilee said...

Sign me up! I wish I was so crafty, to be able to make something like that. I love all the seasons, but am laking in the Fall category (apparently everyone is!)

And, for my favorite post...well the most recent one of your first day back. I was laughing so hard I was crying. Partly because I could totally see all of that happening to me!

Katie said...

Yay, I am excited for a chance to win something "Shanna-made"! I don't know if this counts, but my all time favorite holiday is Father's day. Wierd, I know, I just love the men in my life so much I love celebrating and appreciating them, and we got our kids just before Father's day, so it has special meaning for me. As for my favorite post, I can't remember the name (and I couldn't find it when I scanned old posts) but I LOVE the one about remembering taking your kids sho shopping and all the poop and the craziness. I was crying, I was laughing so hard. Mostly, I think, because I have totally been there, and I can just picture the whole thing. I loved it!

Okay I think my favorite post is I've been climbing the walls for a while now and then your kids are climbing them for real... My favorite holiday is halloween... You are so talented.. I wish I knew how to make things by sewing them.. It looks like you had a fun time on your trip to Puerto Rico.. IT is beautiful there...

Opp Family said...

I love the 4th of July (hint, hint - I'd really like a quilted flag :)

My favorite post was the one of you taking all three to the store when they were itty bitty, I can only imagine the frustration!

Cecilee said...

I cannot believe you are making 10 more of these!! How do you find the time? Of course I would love to win as long as you are going to all the trouble. I would love a Halloween or Fall-type quilt. I love the fall.

As for my favorite post, its hard to decide. But I loved the one about the Christmas miracle and Kydon's coat. That was amazing.

Kim said...

I too am amazed at your craftiness. I would love to win a hand crafted item! My favorite season would have to be summer, so a 4th of July something would be fabulous.
I lot of different posts come to mind, but the ones that I find myself thinking about often throughout my days is when you wrote about how "popular" you are... it makes me laugh every time I'm feeling extra "popular" too.

mandamike said...

Wow, you are so crafty! I am totally not crafty at all :) that's why I married an artist.
My favorite season is fall, so I guess Holiday would be Thanksgiving, but really my favorite holiday is Christmas, but I currently have 6 rubbermaid bins full of Christmas stuff :P
My favorite post that you have done is probably the Dora one! I actually laughed outloud to that one, I can totally relate, really what is Dora's powers, how can she make my very studdorn 3-year old do stuff?

erika said...

Oooh, count me in! I love Christmas and 4th of July.

And, I think my favorite post is the one about the balloons and your kids. I still laugh about that one!

ali said...

Christmas is my favorite holiday, and my favorite post of yours is the one where Abigail says "I just want to say Butt." I can't remember the name of it, but it makes me laugh my head off every time I think of it!!

Jen said...

I guess I should do a giveaway on my blog and then maybe someone would comment. ;) Too bad I don't have any talent that can be given away. So, I think something summery would be awesome since I don't have much at all for summer decorations. I too can't believe you can find the time with three little ones to quilt. As for a favorite post...I don't know! You are always so funny I usually laugh when reading your blog. I do love your recipes too--maybe I should pick the post about pizza rolls since now my kids beg for them all the time.

Brenda Overcash said...

I would love to win! My favorite season is Spring...maybe because I just can't wait for it to get here!
My favorite post? That's so hard! I love all of your adoption posts...everytime I read of your love for your children I praise God that He sent you to be Jack and Aidan's mom. And I love reading all of your funny stories about your daily lives.

Brenda Overcash said...

ooohhh...if I am lucky enough to win, I would love a quilted flag! Also, check out greatwolf.com. They are opening a resort in Concord, and they have opening specials. It's pricey but looks like lots of fun! Also check out nctrans.org. It's the transportation museum we were talking about last time you were here. There are two dates for Thomas in the fall, and they also have other special events.

Mandy-Joe-Chase-James said...

Okay I will play--especially since I am on here all the time getting food storage tips--mommy tips--and giggles--I just love the way you tell your stories! I absolutely love fall and one of my favorite blogs is when you were doing your walks to the corner--I just love all the drama over a simple walk--reminds me of my life--LOVE IT!!!

amy said...

Fine. If you're going to force my hand! :) I actually thought about posting a comment but I thought some other people should get a chance to get some of your crafts. I love them! But I'm a leaving you a comment and I love spring...and I LOVE all your tales of parenting. You have a way of telling your stories that make it really sound fun when it was probably hell! :)

Momma to 1 Looking for #2 said...

Well since you asked nicely...I have enjoyed reading your food fridays stuff...and actually passed it on to my sister...I love spring time

Emily said...

seriously, the guilt trip worked. I really would love something crafty since, none of that was passed down from my mother! I love halloween or yom kippur. Can you do yom kippur?

Emily said...

I forgot, my favorite post is any of your "outings with 3 kids" posts. I am usually found laughing so hard and my kids asking me what's so funny. Really, you are quite a funny person. At least we can laugh later, right?

Alisa said...

I am new to your blog, and am really enjoying it! Your bento lunches have inspired me to try making my own. My favorite time of year is fall, pumpkins, leaves and everything. Thanks!

Sue @ My Party of 6 said...

My favorite holiday is 4th of July and season is summer! My favorite post of yours is the one about stealing a baby. (Really, and not just because it's today's post!)

I'm a little nervous to post this comment. Do I have to craft something forward? I am so.not.crafty!

mommymuse said...

My favorite holiday is Christmas, Christmas, Christmas, and my favorite post---oooh, this is hard--is probably the one you wrote about Abigail growing up. It made me bawl!

Countless Tomorrows said...

I just found your blog today thanks to the 2ofus4now member who mentioned the awesome post you did about BABY in the NICU unit. So sad...
Anyways, your blog looks way cute and I am now a faithful follower and FYI, I love to post comments so you will hear from me often.
I LOVE HALLOWEEN! Seriously. I have more Halloween decorations than anything else. I even decorate my bathroom in Halloween decor. I put my decorations up the last week of September (despite my hubby's protest) and then because my hubby nags me so much I try to take them down the first week of November.
Oh, since I am new to your blog I would have to say that the stealing baby post is my favorite, but I will be browsing through your blog over the days to come so I can better get to know you.

Rheanna said...

I thought I would get in at the last minute...what can I say, I am a procrastinator. My favorite holiday is Halloween.
I have two favorite posts. First, I thought your potty training posts were great, so funny (I know you weren't having fun!).
But also, stealing the baby, was very moving...I can relate to those feelings so well.
