Happy Mother's Day! and Giveaway Winner Announced

Happy Mother's Day to all Moms, Grandmoms, Great-Grandmoms, Moms-to-be, second Mothers, and those we love just like a Mom. I know my greatest joys in life have come from being a mother; I hope each of you is blessed to feel that level of love at least once in your lifetime.

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and New Wallets

It's here! It's here! The Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day has arrived! 
Yes, I'm actually that excited.
This twice a year event, which actually lasts a full work week, is spectacular. "Meet" some new bloggers, have billion chances at winning a lil' somethin' for yourself, and feel the generosity of those who participate in spades. Awesomeness.
And I'm just as excited that Gypsy Thread will be participating in all that generosity this time around.

For those of you unfamiliar with my sewing adventures, please feel free to click around on those purple, social networking, circle icons to the right. I'm post to Facebook MUCH more often than I post anything to this blog. You can also find more about me, Carey, here. If you're wondering where the name "Gypsy Thread" originated, perhaps you'll find this entertaining. Click, browse, what have you. I'll be here when you're done.

One of the most loved and versatile items in my Etsy store are these great "Tea Wallets". While they're sized to carry your individual tea bags, they're also great to hold all sorts of cards - business, ID, credit, gift, loyalty, etc. For a really fun gift I've had a few customers slip in a gift certificate to their friend's favorite coffee or tea shop before gifting them. Great idea, huh? My friends and customers are so lovely!
