(Late) Giveaway Tuesday!

Okay, okay, so it's not really Tuesday, but just humor me. This week I'm giving away a laptop cover that I made a while ago.

It actually features the awesome bird from my logo :) I've sold a few laptop covers over the past year, but they just weren't where my attention was and so they fell by the wayside. But I have a few left over just collecting dust, so I thought what better way to find them a new home? This particular cover is lined with blue fleece to give it a bit of padding. And it has a bit of a different closing, folding over the end of the computer like a box flap almost, with two pieces of velcro to hold it closed securely.

It measures approx. 8 1/2"x 11 1/2", so it would be great for a smaller laptop. You could even use it for file folders for work or school, or whatever you want! It's just a really cute bag that I hate to see laying around with no purpose. And as always all embroidery was done by my own two hands!


So if you want a super cool handmade laptop cover then this is what you do!

Now, how to win. I know you're probably used to the normal routine of having to tweet about giveaways, blog about the giveaway, etc. But I'm doing things differently. It's not your job to promote me, that's my job! So this is how it's going to work:
Sorry, giveaway open to US and Canada residents only!
Each of the following counts for one entry, please leave a separate comment for each one!! And please leave your email address in the comments so I can contact you if you win :)
  1. This one is mandatory :) Follow my blog.
  2. Subscribe by email to my blog (on the right side, right over there!--->)
  3. Are you doing anything special for St. Patrick's Day?
  4. Do you like corn beef and hash?
  5. Do you want to do bodily harm to the people who have the nerve to pinch you if you don't have on green?
One lucky winner will be chosen at random next Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010.

Also, if you have an Etsy shop and would like me to host a giveaway for you just send me a message at bleuroo@bellsouth.net. Or if you're like me and just have some random cool stuff sitting around collecting dust and it needs to find a new home, that's cool too! Just contact me and we'll go over specifics :)

  1. Hi there! I love your laptop bag and I do follow your blog. And yes, sometimes I would like to do bodily harm to those folks who find it amusing to pinch us anti-green people.

  2. Having green food for St Patrick's Day w/the kiddos (spinach white pizza, tomato, basil and mozzarella and pistachio pudding.)

  3. Do not like the traditional St Patrick's day food, hence the above post (really, who has pistachio pudding for St Patricks?)

  30. I didn't do anything special for St. Patrick's Day. Too busy at work, and it's hard to go out on a Wednesday if you have to be up at 530am the next day.

  31. Nope, not a fan of corn beef and hash.

  32. No, if they pinch me, they'll just get a scowl or a pinch back, depending on who it is. No need to get overly worked up out it.

  37. Sometimes I feel stupid for wearing a green shirt on St Patrick's day, but if I didn't I know I would be SO annoyed with pinches all day! :P

  39. St.Pat's is long past, of course-but I always celebrate it with salmon or some other seafood dish! You know, REAL Irish food. Because I have corned beef regularly, otherwise!

  40. My last comment already likely answered it, but yes, I am indeed a fan of corned beef and hash!

  41. I am ALWAYS wearing green. I'm wearing green right now, as I type. I'm considering having a tiny swatch of Pantone green colors tattoo'd on my arm, so it's there even when I shower. It's my color.
    As such, St. Pat's is a special day for me. It's the day when I generally get to retaliate against every smug smirking self-congratulatory commenter who's spent the last year saying "Whaddareya, a leprechaun/elf/Peter Pan? Hurhurhur." They somehow think of green as a fairy color. St. Patrick's Day is my day of Pinchy Vengeance.

    Didn't make a snotty comment to me? Then you're not getting pinched. Custom may be unfairly impartial, but the Green Avenger only punishes the wicked!

  45. Hmmm, I've never had corn beef and hash....but it sounds kinda nasty?? I made green potatoes and Green eggs though- kinda fakey st.patrick's day fare. We are Irish though, so I think its ok to skip the nasty Irish food my mom used to make us eat as kids.

  46. 4. Yes- dont pinch me or I'll knock you out..haha maybe thats a bit harsh but I hate to be pinched.

  50. I used to love corned beef and hash until I became a vegetarian. I still have cravings for it every so often though!

  51. I can't even express how I feel when people pinch me, they wouldn't dare on a normal day to do it so why on the 17th? Gah

  60. I like corn, I like beef, and I guess I like hash, but I am not sure about them all together. But there's not much I don't like, so it's safe to say probably...

  62. Following your blog =)
    Are you doing anything special for St. Patrick's Day? - Unfortunately I did not do anything special. The day after I had my wisdom tooth pulled out. How lame and painful =(
    Do you like corn beef and hash? I have never tried it... hmmm
    Do you want to do bodily harm to the people who have the nerve to pinch you if you don't have on green? Yes, although I have always tried to use the excuse " I have green eyes" hehehe

    Thanks for this great opportunity!

  68. GREEN is my favorite color, and I wear it as often as I possibly can.

    On St. Patrick's Day, I ended up resting a lot, since I work the night shift.

    Love this giveaway! If you have a page on Facebook, I will make sure to become a fan, since web filters block Facebook at my work.

  71. Unfortunately, I did not do anything special on St. Patty's Day...I went to Notre Dame and used to live in Boston, so being in the south has been a shock to the senses - people are just not into it down here! I had planned on going to a pub with some friends to get them in the spirit, but came down with a nasty cold and did not get to go =(

    ReplyDelete
  72. I LOVE corned beef and hash!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I've never been pinched on St. Patty's Day for not wearing green, because I always remember to wear green! So no, I don't do bodily harm to people!

    (PS-great giveaway! I love the laptop bag.)

  75. nothing special for me on St. Patrick's Day. I knew it was a holiday but my family doesn't have any traditions for this one.

  76. no :-) That is, I've never tried it. I don't think I'd like it but who knows... "hash" just doesn't sound appetizing to me.

  77. Love that last question! In a word, "yes," but I'm happy to say it hasn't happened often. I usually have something green on anyway because it's one of my favorite colors.

  79. I wasn't planning on doing anything for St. Patrick's day, but I love the color green so much, I wear it all the time and so I wore it on St. Paddy's day without realizing it.

    ReplyDelete
  80. If my friends and family pinched me, I'd pinch them back. If strangers did it, then yes, bodily harm.

    ReplyDelete
  81. And no, corned beef and hash is not a favorite :(
