julie_pickles Just got done cleaning the kids' room while they're off at school. Not only was I able to purge FOUR trash bags full of crap without having to smuggle it out of the house like a drug lord, but I got paid for doing it too! Cha-Ching! 4d
  •   lindsey_loves Score! And that's how I have to clean too. Children are mini hoarders. 4d

julie_pickles Hey guys! I'm going to be listing the social totes that I made in my shop some time in the next few days, but wanted to offer them up here first. Once they hit the shop they will be priced at $55 PLUS shipping, so save on shipping by getting them here first! Just leave your PayPal address and let me know which one you'd like to claim. Thank you! 4w

  •   julie_pickles @blwalker2010 Which one? A critter or a tote? I am definitely planning on selling the totes and already have critters up for grabs. Let me know what you are interested in and I can put up a listing for you. I definitely take the gift cards. 1mon
  •   julie_pickles @sleinwand Sounds good, just let me know! I can do any fabric combo that you'd like too, don't be afraid to ask for something special! 1mon
  •   blwalker2010 Critter, Couldn't find your etsy shop but I found it thanks! 1mon
  •   julie_pickles @blwalker2010 Ok, let me know if what you want isn't listed. And I can do custom critters too, just ask and I'll see what I can do 1mon
  •   sleinwand Sent you an email let me know if you didn't get it! Thanks again 1mon
  •   julie_pickles @sleinwand Yes, it was in my spam folder. Sorry about that! My phone doesn't push through the messages in that folder and I've been away from the computer all weekend, but I see it now! I'll give it a good read in the morning and dig for some fabrics and see what I can do for you 1mon

julie_pickles It's giveaway time!! I recently hit a pretty cool milestone, 1000 followers! I have been trying to find the best way to thank you all for hanging out with me in this amazingly awesome community, and since people follow me for various reasons I wanted to offer up something that would hopefully appeal to the masses. I mean, most of you would most likely be happy with fabric, am I right?! But I wanted to offer something that might appeal to the small percentage of you who don't as well. So in this giveaway you get to choose which prize to claim! ---------------------------------------------
THE DETAILS:
The winner of this giveaway will be chosen by random from the list of entries. The winner will pick ONE item from the photo as their prize.
Prizes are:
1. A patchwork critter of your choosing from my available list. Any animal in any fabric combo that you choose.
2. A set of THREE fat quarters from the OOP Nightshade collection by Tula Pink

3. One social tote, choose one of the three pictured. (I claimed one of the four that I made for myself, so I apologize to those of you who liked the pink and blue one!)
------------------------------------------------
HOW TO ENTER:

1. Like this photo
2. Leave a comment on this photo. If there is a sewing project that you want to have/make but are too scared to try, I'd love to know about it! I'm doing a bit of research and your answers to that will help!

3. Tag a friend (or a few) in your comment! I know people don't like repost giveaways, so do me a favor by tagging a friend to help spread the word. Keep in mind that only the person commenting will win a prize, so if you get tagged make sure you comment to to be entered!

Only one comment per person please to keep the entries fair. Giveaway will close Friday evening (March 13th) and I will announce the winner by Saturday. Thank you and good luck!!

julie_pickles Every single time I lay on my belly, this is what happens. Oh well, he keeps me warm at least. And no, I don't pretend to sleep while taking selfies, just trying to keep the flash out of my eyes . 3mon
  •   perfectionnotincluded Mine loves to sleep curled under my chin. So annoying! 3mon
  •   julie_pickles @perfectionnotincluded I have to move mine any time he gets close to my face like that, the whiskers tickle me, lol. He just finds another spot though, either on my head, or curled up next to a leg. Gotta love 'em, right? 3mon
  •   perfectionnotincluded Yep. They just love you so much they need to be right next to you. 3mon
