Funny thing about me: well probably more weird than anything. lol i love to shop for nail polish but I rarely buy any. But it's so much fun to me to just look at it all.

I just love your bags. They're beautiful. My daughter is always trying to help me live a greener lifestyle, and she would be thrilled if I won one. My email is sistercdratyahoodotcom, and I hope I'll be hearing from you!

Yay! We just moved from phoenix to Portland, OR and have been hitting up every farmers market we can find. Loving the new GREEN city! Out with the desert, in with the trees. Bag me, Teresa! Rachelnies(at)me(dot)com. Thanks!!

My email is dawncferrell(at)gmail(dot)com -- Your bags are wonderful and this is a great freebie give-away. Please send me one to use. Thank you. -- We have an Aussie dog (long fur and no tail). We taught her to wiggle waggle on command. So she wiggles her stub of a tail and waggles her whole furry back end. Our friends think it is quite funny to watch. Take care.

I learned about you from our fabulous mutual friend Melissa.

Lisa said...

I am thrilled at this concept! I am a bag freak, and this one in particular would be very special to me! I especially love to tote wine in my green bag, my hubs loves to carry tools and my lil boy (4) lugs his thousands of hot wheels!

Thank you...my email is lisadotstreuatknchlawdotcom.

Valerie said...

I would love a bag. valerie(at)wordsyouwant(dot)com. Something fun about my family is that we have a ferret who would probably love to take a nap in one of your bags. Lol.

rosepetal501 said...

Something funny about my spouse, well that should be easy. He is hilarious everyday. For instance, everyday he arranges my stuffed animals on my bed in different positions (family). When he brings me a hostess cupcake, it puts it on a plate with drizzled chocolate. He always pretends he lost his contact using the code lid. He blows on his sock before it on, as if it is a balloon. He keeps me in stitches, and we've been married 30 years, just laughing our way through. I'd love to have one of your bags. Thanks so much.

laurie said...

laurieatcastlepropertydotcom At least once a day I look at my little boy and wonder how long it will be before he is taller than me. And then I give him a big, ginormous hug. Time flies!

Andrea said...

When I saw the post about bag number 12,000, a few days ago, I was going to email you and ask you what I had to do to get that bag! I love it, for the design and the number! I was driving one day and looked down at my odometer and was about to hit the 100,000 mile mark on my car. I actually pulled the car to the side of the road when it hit the magic number so that I could take a picture. So that is my weird, fun thing :)

Something about my dog... She has been escaping from the house lately returning with treasures. Last night, a bagel. The night before, an entire porkchop.

Crystal said...

Love the bags.

My funny comment - my dog just figured out this morning how to use the cat door to get into the laundry room. We've had him 3 months and he's seen the cat go in and out but now he's figured he can too. Bad thing is all of my fabric is stored in the laundry room and he found some fleece and decided it was a chew toy. Oh the fun of having a puppy.

What a cool project! I only use my own bags.

My funny snippet besides being a freak-a-zoid recycler (we recycle toilet paper rolls...) is that I "wove" a tent from I can't remember how many plastic grocery bags in Dave's intro Sculpture class. I have an old slide, but the image isn't online anywhere.

The funny part was when I took the whole contraption to the grocery store insisting on putting it in the recyling bin.

Db said...

Yay! Thanks for having a wonderful give away! My email is: lindy.colombini(at)gmail(dot)com.

My cat really enjoys sandwich hugs, where his in the middle of my husband and me, but he doesn't like to admit that he does.

Julie said...

jnewberry329(at)aol(dot)com : I love that you are giving out these bags. What a wonderful impact on the environment. My funny story is that over the summer I have been trying to potty train our 3 year old daughter. Well she refused to go to the potty and I was really getting frustrated. One day when I let the dog go outside she followed him. Not only did she strip naked and pee in the yard, but she walked in circles like he did and POOPED in the yard. She came running back inside and asked if I was proud of her? What else could I say but yes I was. And I should have been trying to housebreak you instead of potty train you.

Funny about me: I have a strange memory. I can remember a face of unknown persone. I can see this person again and remember that I saw him in the bus last week. But then I don't remember what important I said to my friend 1 week ago.

Angela said...

Hello, Would love to have a bag thank you for such a wonder gift!
ahaleytn(at)aol(dot)com

We have a cat named Ninja, who loves to sneak attack you around corners. He will jump on his back legs and jump as you are walking to "attack" you, which is basically a jump off your legs and takes off running. He has brought so much laughter to our house as crazy as he is.

jodi said...

our family loves using re-usable bags...your are just so much prettier :) my hubs & i have 2 daughters (ages 4 & 5), a dog (a narcaleptic boston terrier) and a cat (neurotic & fluffy).

Something about me and my spouse...

What great inspiration! I love this idea and I'm so glad to have found your blog. Thanks for the giveaway! Something funny about us...my almost 2-year old has just learned how to take his pants off at completely inappropriate times. Usually in public. Awesome. jennylink19(at)gmail(dot)com

Kristine said...

Wow what a fantastic giveaway. I am trying to get my family a little greener so this will help.

Something funny - hmmm - my 5 year ols said in the car today on our way to school that he didn't think kindergarten would be too hard except for Spanish :)

Teresa, I have one of your fabulous bags from back when you came to our Vandy Moms meeting a gazillion years ago (seems like!). Since then, we have invested in our own stash of reusable bags from various places, which my children have decorated with Sharpies...and now they have made stashes of bags for my mom and sister as well. I even went to my oldest daughter's Girl Scout meeting and taught them how to make their own bags! Love that you are still doing this. :)

Diana said...

I just found out about your site today - what a wonderful project! Now I'm thinking about what I could make and send out into the world for free.

I was talking to my 10-year-old niece the other day, and I asked her whether she remembered visiting my house when she was 2. She said, "No, I don't remember my childhood."

Maybe a prettier one will help ?!
Funny..my husband reads during tv shows then stops to watch the commericals..I haven't quite figured that out..but I always laugh! Deb

i love your mission, and the joyful abandon it seems you have in carrying it out! sharing something about me... i re-use the "scraps" of veggies to make soup stock, then strain them out before i'll relinquish them to the compost... i use family cloth instead of toilet paper... and we buy so little packaging that i almost never have to take the trash (or recycling!) out anymore. :)

We have 2 children(26-F, 21-M),a dog-Pepper,a cat-Dash.
My son, Ryan & I keep trying to get my husband to recycle more by using recycled bags when grocery shopping. So winning this bag would be great fo rthis effort. He is very good about using reusable water bottle - so he's half way there!
Thanks for the generosity and great cause! Janice Lonergan

I would love to win one of the Amy Butler fabric bags - they're beautiful. I suppose I would win for my mom or son since I already have a bag. aehaasAT)gmail(DOTcom. The 'funny' thing about our family cats is ... they only come out of the basement when the children are asleep in bed for the night. However, the children LOVE the cats (perhaps too much).

karennarelle said...

what a wonderful idea. you have reminded me that 1 person really can make a difference. a funny thing about our family is that we like to sit around the table to have a chat. congratulations on 12,000 and keep on sewing!!! k_keiperatbigponddotcom

One of my New Year's resolutions for 2010 was to stop using plastic bags. I think this is such a cool idea. I will definitely have to pay it forward! :)Katherine -- georgenoodle(at)ihug(dot)co(dot)nz

I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon you while looking for a free pattern to sew your own gift bags, because not only do I get to share what you're doing, but I get to win a freebie. woohoo!

Something fun about our family.. we're expanding to 3 any day now! I have driven my family & friends nuts about all things green baby. Thankfully, my fiance is totally with it.

Thanks for all you're doing, soul sister!

I have been known as the "recycling queen" in my family and church for years - even have a cap I made up for presentations about recycling - I usually pin recyclable items on a sweater too, must admit, it looks pretty silly, but brings attention to everything that can be recycled, including used postage stamps, coupons, etc. charwoodatjunodotcom

What beautiful bags! We use fabric bags for shopping, but none of them are this gorgeous! We don't have a dog, but we have a cat who loves to sleep between our pillows at night on our bed - that's the only time of day she comes out for attention! The rest of the day she hides in the closet - silly feline! Thanks for your giveaway!

We are the proud parents of 13 feline fur-children (and believe it or not, we are normal people - one of my sister's statements about us!).

Love what you are doing - and your You Tube video was fab!

I took my 2-year old to the International Garbage Truck Rodeo today. He is obsessed with trash and recycling. It takes us forever to make our way through a parking lot, because he wants to stop and pick up all the litter to throw away.
