My mom asked me why I didn't get her a bag, so I'm entering in hopes of winning a Green Bag Lady bag for my mother. I like Valentine's Day because it gives us a reason to tell those we love, that we love them! Not that we need a reason, but sometimes that reminder is needed.

My daughter-in-law loved my bag from you, so I'd like to win one for her. Favorite thing about V-day? Duh. Chocolate! sagenorbury(at)yahoo(dot)com.

My husband and I are busy parents to a very active three year old sweet daughter. No matter what else is going on in our lives, Valentine's Day means DATE NIGHT!....something we do far too rarely. We are looking forward to a night out....while Gramma babysits!

I love the bags; I've made several various kinds! My favorite thing about Valentine's Day is reminding those you love that you love them and they to you with roses or chocolate or time together (so I guess everything?) One thing is time together. :) (and I just realized Kelly already posted that, but I agree!)

There are so many little things I love about Valentine's Day but I think my favorite are the surprises my husband and I do for each other. Whether it is a bottle of wine and a candle lit dinner at home or little gifts being delivered at work, I love to surprise him and he loves to surprise me!

Oh boy! I hope I win! This is my first Valentine's Day as a married lady and I'm excited to spend time with my husband. He's cooking a surprise meal for me. In years past my favorite part of Valentine's day is decorating heart-shaped cookies with pink frosting!

My favorite thing about Valentine's Day is just spending the day with my hubby. I hope I win!!

Jaclyn said...

My favourite thing about V-Day is that it is both my parent's and my future parent-in-law's anniversary - what better ways to celebrate love on that special day? Thanks for the chance!

Anonymous said...

My mom loved my bag I received from you last time. She wants one too. I hope I can win one for her this time around.

I love Valentines day ever since I was a little kid. Cutting out paper hearts in pink and red paper and eating delicious chocolate covered strawberries! Yum!

Thanks for the chance!

I like Valentines Day because its glittery and bright in my wintery northern land and writing happy notes of affection to my sisters who live out of state. :)

Chocolate!!! Since I was 2 my dad has been buying me chocolate for V-day--such a sweet tradition and ensures a chocolate supply even if I don't have someone else in my life over V-day.

We have a bake sale at my daughter's preschool every year, I love making sweets!
My husband's and my anniversary is the next day so I also love going on the "day after valentine's day"...you still get the specials with none of the crowd!

I LOVE the bag you designed for Whitney at Whisker Graphics...so much more fun and useful than the paper-thin reusable bags you can buy at our local grocery stores!! My favorite part about Valentine's Day is surprising friends with little cards and treats to let them know how much I appreciate their friendship...oh, and those yummy chocolate hearts filled with strawberry cream! Thanks, Erin

Hmm...well first and foremost I should admit Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. Is it a holiday, well never the less it's my favorite. I don't currently have a special someone to share it with but i love sharing it my friends. I look forward to making them special treats and I like to make cupcakes for my co-workers. The day makes me happy because it's all about love; which is one the most powerful things in life.
Thanks for letting me share. I would love one your bags...I live in SF where we plastic bags are a big no no.

My favorite thing about Valentine's Day is serving. Last year I hosted my first Valentine's Dinner for one of the singles groups in my church. This year we've included a second group and we're serving brunch to probably 30 singles. For those who won't have a "date" on the "celebrate love" day, we just pamper them and give them an opportunity to remember & reflect on the greatest love of all. It really is the best thing I've ever done on Valentine's Day - enjoy others enjoying being served.

I just found your website last night (love the video tutorial...your daughter is a natural!) and have already made three bags. I'm in the "dumber than fabric" club, but that doesn't stop me from sewing! Thanks for offering such a fabulously simple pattern.

I am looking forward to making bags for my entire family. My mom and I are really pushing for a no plastic bag policy when we run our errands and one of our stores offers 50 cents off your purchase for using totes, so even better!

I like Valentine's day because it is a great reminder to share the love.

I make my family heart shaped treats throughout the month (today it was heart shaped chocolate chip cookies) to let them know I love them. It's a neat way to share the love while I am at work (on evening shift).

Thank you very much!

My favorite thing about Valentine's is our tradition to stay-in. Hubby makes us a fancy meal and I try a new fancy dessert recipe. I also love not only does my hubby surprise me with Valentine's goodies, but he gets something for the kids too.

(P.S. Keep up the good work. Bags hanging by the door now so I remember to put in the car)

I'd love to have a bag! I love Valentines day because my dear husband didn't propose that day like I expected him to. That always makes me giggle especially because we ended up getting married just one month later (to the day) So I get two romantic days only a month apart. Add to that my birthday in January and the first three months of the year are always good.

Hi, i am a thrifty shopper, and don't have a green bag (surprisingly, right?). I don't know why, but i suddenly wanted to see if i can get a free green bag so i google it, and come across your website. I guess i am lucky, found your website before your giveaway game ends! I would love to get one your bag, it would be very special to be using a bag made by someone (i wish i am as talent as you in sewing). I love valentine's Day, because it's a special day that i can make my boyfriend act cheesy, he's very shy when it comes to show affections. Plus, i love the decorations in every store, red roses and red/pink box with sweet chocolate, and i can't wait for the big sale after VD. Thank you.

My favorite thing about Valentine's Day is that my childhood friend Sandy also has 2/14 as her birthday - so I always love sending her mix messages - HBD and HVD cards... it gets tricky because I have to get creative. This year she will be 41 like me and we have been friends since we were 5...makes Valentine's day so very special for me always! :) Oh and Chocolate, that is a close runner up! Thanks for this chance!

Erin C. said...

Hi, what a doubly nice giveaway - a cool bag and the re-usable grocery bag aspect is so cool, times 50. That's 50 fewer plastic bags going into a landfill and ya gotta love that!

Valentines Day is a nice excuse to give and get love from our nearest and dearest. I like to make and send Valentine greetings.

I love this idea! My favorite thing is to curl up on the couch with my two beautiful baby girls and my wonderful husband to watch TV. It's usually Sprout for them but that's ok because while they are occupied for a couple of minutes at a time me and my husband get to talk about anything and everything!! So sweet and special are those stolen moments.

My favorite thing about Valentines day has to be giving out candy and cards. Its such a simple thing to do but really brightens someones day on Valentines Day when you give them a card or some candy. I try to give it to people who least expect to get anything from me just to get their reaction...and its priceless.

I can appreciate Valentine's Day because even though I am single, I think it is important that my son (and other youngsters) take note there is a day strictly devoted to love. It shows them love is even that more important. Happy Valentine's Day!

I have two favorite things about Valentine's day. 1) When I was little my dad would buy me and each of my sisters a flower (usually a carnation) and ring the doorbell to surprise us with a flower. 2) Now that I'm married (I've been single for a long time), it is an excuse to make something crafty to show my husband that I love him.
