Giveaway #1 was drawn by assigning all entries a consecutive number and then randomly generating a number on random.org (no. 13)....the lucky winner is 'Julie' - yay!
Giveaway #2 - this was so beautifully entered by 3 fabulous mentors to the next generation in creating handmade goodies and so Candy, Shannon and Chelsey will all be receiving a handmade brooch
Giveaway #3 - this is sooo hard but the winner is Candy whose beautiful line of 'what's in your bag is in your heart' won me over.
I hope you enjoy your goodies ladies and I will be sure not to leave it so long until I next offer some little treasures in a giveaway. x

So now I try and have two of your vintage wallets on hand,my very first one I purchased(for biz cards) and the wallpaper one for day to day importance (money!)
For the little miss...
I am forever trying to teach my girls the importance of handmade,especially in these fast paced times,from cooking handmade to gardening and yes I would love to say sewing,but we all know that can be a little difficult at times when you have orders to sew yourself, but I am trying.
and last but not least...
Why I love you....
What is there not to love, you rock girl.
You are an inspiration to me every single day.
You helped me realise my dream and supported me along the way, and for that I am forever grateful.
You are always there for me when I need help.
And most of all you are part of the handmade revolution, bringing beautiful back into these crazy mass production times.
You are unique,inspiring,wonderful,giving person Lyssy...

My entry is What's in your bag, is in your heart. I love you because you follow your heart and work hard to maintain your dream. I bought your oil cloth wallet last year at Lyssy May's Think Pink Party, I love it because it matches my business cards. I use it to put my business cards in and others that I collect.

Anyway, cue an Oprah voice....it's a GIVE-A-WAY...GIVE-A-WAY*, PEOPLE! (let's all scream, jump up and down and hug the person next to us).
Now I also missed doing this on my 100th post (you'd think I'd had handbags to design or something with all this ignorance of milestones)...so I am going a triple treat and hopefully you'd love to enter one or all of the groups - its up to you.
Giveaway 1 - something from 'in my bag'
To enter please leave a comment on what your current favourite design is on lyssymay.com and you will get your pick of one item from the 'in my bag' range. This will be drawn at random. You might like to choose a vintage wallpaper wallet...
Giveaway 2 - something for a little miss
I learnt to 'sew' using cardboard lace cards when I was 3 and would love to hear from mums, aunties, grandmas, godmothers and other fabulous women about how they are passing on their skills in handmade things to the younger generation (doesn't have to be sewing - can be cooking, drawing etc). My favourite 3 responses will each receive one of the new handmade felt brooches...
Giveaway 3 - tell me why you love me (or kinda like me)
You are welcome to separately email me an entry such as a pic with your item and can be creative with your answer (with the proviso that you give consent for me to post your entry here on the blog). The best response (as judged by me with a panel of experts) will win... their choice of ANY Lyssy May bag or product currently on the website. That's right - a free handbag to any value! So dig out that bag you might have picked up at one of my handbag parties or the markets back in the day and lets reminisce a little.
I think I have now celebrated in style. Good luck!
*Deadline extended due to requests to be able to put some creative entries together!!! Entries close 6 pm (AEST) Monday, 15th June, 2009 and winners will be notified asap!
*I am happy to post out all items anywhere in the world for free
