The WINNER of the Naturally Adorable's snack bag
is Katherine (via random selection). I asked people to share their holiday traditions - and here is Katherine's:
The last few years we have been going into NYC and having our Christmas dinner out. The last couple of years have been a great Vietnamese place in Chelsea; before that is was Chinese.
Thanks for sharing, Katherine. I can see how going out in NYC (instead of cooking for hours) could be incredibly relaxing and celebratory. All of the contest entries were lovely and fun to read - see here: Winner of SodaStream and New Snack Bag Giveaway
New Snack Bag Giveaway
As we come up to New Year's it is time to reflect and plan our "new" selves. I plan to be more green - and to remember my reusable bags when I go to the grocery store. It REALLY irks me when I leave them in the car (argh).
Snack-Girl's giveaway this week is from: Its A Ten
Her snack bags start at $3.50 and are just adorable.
Tami shared with me her reasons for making snack bags:
I started making reusable bags a couple months ago simply because a good friend of mine asked me to. Her husband had bought one and paid close to $10 for it. She thought that was a little outrageous and asked if she thought I could make them for less than that. So I went to work...luckily I have a fairly large stash of designer fabrics and many years of sewing experience under my belt, so putting a few together for her was a breeze. (I have two little girls and have made them little purses using the same concept as my baggies. Only with the baggies I increased the length of velcro across the top and did not have to add a handle.) I then showed them to a few of my other friends and got rave reviews and decided to add them to my Etsy shop. Since then, my friends have continued to order and I am now getting orders on Etsy.
Being a stay at home mom with 2 kids who are not in school yet, I find that sewing is something that I can do with my girls playing in the next room or after they've gone to bed for the night. Plus they are both becoming very interested in sewing. My 4 year old already wants a sewing machine like mommy's for "my 5 birthday"...those are her words! Its exciting to be making (and using myself) something that is good for the environment Prior to using my bags I would use at least 3-4 plastic bags a day because each of my girls wanted their "own" snack bag. I can honestly say that I know I haven't used near as many plastic ziploc bags since I've started making my Sak Saver Baggies!! (Note: I still use plastic ziploc bags for overnight storage in the refrigerator or freezer)
My resolutions include to make more stuff myself this year - mostly food :)
