Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day

It's that time again, right before the Holidays, for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day.
I love it. I love to make someone a winner right before Christmas!
You can enter my giveaways below, I'll have two winners, one for each item I am offering.
This is open to international entries. Giveaway will close Friday, December 7th at night when I go to bed.



To enter:
Leave a comment saying what giveaway (#1 Fabric or  #2 Pouch or both) you would like to be included in. Also, leave a quick little note, so I can be entertained while reading them, about when your child or children or YOU found out the truth about Santa.
(Personally, I was pretty old, upper elementary grades, And I couldn't believe it when a girl at recess told me. I never would have imagined my parents spending so much money. My oldest is now 10 and I think he still believes or at least I want to believe he still does. He better not ruin it for my youngest :)
 
For 2 extra entries:
leave an additional comment for each option below saying you have done the following:
-Follow edeenut on facebook HERE
-Follow edeenut blog over there on the side bar -------> 



Giveaway #1
One winner will get a 15oz clear bag of fabric pieces. They vary in size and would be great for little projects, small quilting pieces, and many many more things. The picture shown here is not exactly what fabric scraps will be in the bag, but it gives you an idea. Averaging about 5" wide and varying lengths.
 


Giveaway #2
One winner will get to choose from a MINI pouch from my shop. This would be a great gift for yourself, or for anyone on your Christmas list. Browse around in my shop HERE for some options available.

 Good luck to All!

  1. Both! ;) (How could I choose??!) As for Santa, I grew up with 3 older brothers, so really the secret was out before I think I even knew what Santa was supposed to be. Ah well - we had fun being Santa for one another, and to this day still give "From Santa" presents even as middle-aged siblings!

  2. I would love #1 - always love adding scraps to the pile :) My neighbor was three years older than me and he told me Santa wasn't real... I told him that my parents would never lie to me. So either my parents are liars or Santa *is* real. :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'd like to enter both please! I can't remember when I found out about Santa, my kids are 9 and 5 and both still believe, I hope to carry that on for a while longer yet! Thanks for the give away!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hi - Thank you for the giveaway. I would be happy with either giveaway which is very generous of you! I was about 7 when my older brothers told me there was no Santa!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Both! We've never followed the belief of Santa in our home. They've been told from the get-go that he is a myth created out of a man who once existed. :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would love giveaway 2. I love small goodies. I remember opening up the truck of my parents car to help with groceries and saw a Kerplunk game. It was on my list! I was probably 7 yrs old.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I`d love some scrap goodness! My parents never got me to believe in Santa, though we are perpetuating the Santa myth with our 2 year old...we`ll get as much mileage out of that as we can (ie if you do X, you`ll be on Santa`s nice list and get lots of presents..) :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I've LOVE giveaway #2! I don't really remember when I found out the truth about Santa. Maybe because I still tend to want to believe in the magic of Christmas :) But we are working very hard at helping our boys understand from the start that Santa is a character (kinda like Mickey Mouse), and that Jesus is the real reason we celebrate Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love scraps! I think I found out when my dad played Santa and I recognized him. He tried to tell me that he had to help Santa but I didn't believe him. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Both, please! My kids have never really believed in Santa. But I "found out" when my mom let it slip that she when looking for this certain doll, she tried to find on with straight bangs.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love the pouches! I think I found out about santa when I realized that his and my mom's handwriting was the same!

    Thanks for a fun giveaway and a chance to win!

  14. I love your pouches so I guess I'll enter #2, although I'd be happy with either prize. I just saw Anna Maria Horner's scrap-fabric garland idea so that's what I'd do with prize #2. I figured out Santa was my Grandma when I was about six because the note that Santa left me thanking me for the homemade cookies I left on Christmas Eve him was written by her with her pen. Thank you for the giveaway.

  16. Ooh! Super sweet giveaways! I like both of them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Both would be great but I have plenty of scraps. But can you ever have to many? I don't remember when I found out there was no santa. But I taught my son that santa was a make believe person and Jesus is why we have Christmas. And one day when he and his wife have kids they will teach him the same thing. I do follow you n facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would like to be entered in both.

    I don't remember when I found out Santa wasn't real...and I don't have any kids or grandkids... :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'd love to have either of these great presents. I learned Santa was real at about 4 years old when I directly asked my mother. The problem was in Kindergarten. I've always been a crusader for truth. In December the teacher put up some pictures of Santa, his reindeer, etc on the bulletin board. I held up my hand in class that day and asked, "Why did you put up pictures of a guy who is imaginary?" I got sent out and spanked. Thankfully, most of my classmates didn't know what the word "imaginary" meant though.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'd like to be entered in both giveaways, please!

    I don't have kids, but I remeber being about 6 when I climbed up on the couch next to my dad and asked if he was really Santa, because he and Santa had the same handwriting and it was ok if he was. I figured it out early, though Santa presents continued to come for several years afterwards anyways - all in good fun!

    ReplyDelete
  21. And I liked you on Facebook. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think both of your giveaways are great fun.

    My children haven't learned the truth yet (is it wrong of me to hope they don't for at least ten more years?!). I was in upper elementary (4th or 5th grade) when I found out & was completely bummed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You can never have enough mini pouches!
    We put up a blow up Santa for my toddler to get less-scared of santa this year. We unplug him during the day and she keeps commenting on how ho-ho goes ni-night a lot.

  27. What a delightful blog! I'd like to enter both giveaways, please. My boys used to sleep in bunk beds, and one night just before Christmas, as I was tucking the boys in, my oldest son chose to ask me for the truth about Santa, leaning over the bunk bed and looking down at his youngest brother. I could have fainted!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd love to win fabrics!
    And talking about this sad Santa's story.. I found out the truth at 1st grade in school. One of the teachers in class said out loud "As you all know, there is no Santa, our parents put gifts under the tree" and she continued the lesson further on.. I was in shock, but from the silence in the class I saw that I was the only one that didn't know that.. That was a sad day :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. #2 please :) any more fabric scraps come into this house and the husband will not be happy lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would LOVE to be included in both giveaways, but if I had to choose, the pouch!! :) I think I was in elementary school when I found out about Santa. Thanks for the chance!

  33. I was in second grade. My teacher read us a book that told all. It was very traumatic! Parents were called to pick us up. I will never forget it! I would love to be entered for the pouch. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't think we ever really lied to the kids about Santa, so they found out pretty early that it was something fun grownups did for kids.

    great giveaway! I'd love to be included in both, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would love either! thanks for the chance!

    I found out when I was 5 (not sure how), but I was SO mad at my parents. I kept telling them that "they fooled mother nature"!! They still talk about that. My 7 year old is suspicious this year and I believe that my 10 year old knows the truth, but doesn't want to admit it!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I follow your blog! thanks again for the chances!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'd love to win one of those pouches! I figured it out pretty young but my mom reconvinced me of it and I believed for something like four more years!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love either - thanks for the choices! I found out about Santa on Christmas day, when I was about 8 or 9. My mother didn't make the same effort to hide it that year (talking about where she bought items for the stocking while I was sitting right there) and then sat me down at the table after gift-giving to tell me there was no Santa. I guess I kind of already knew....but it was still a sad day.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love, love fabric scraps but would be happy with either.Thanks for participating in the giveaway day.

    ReplyDelete
  40. So, first off, I'm a blog follower!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Also, my parents never did the Santa Claus thing, so I always knew that they bought the presents under the tree. Love both giveaways!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love both ! I don't remember ever thinking there was a real Santa. We saw my mom wrapping the gifts and knew they were from my parents. I'm doing the same with my kids, although we sing songs about Santa. But I'm pretty sure even the 4 year old gets that he's just pretend :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd love the scraps! My oldest is 10 and I think he still believes in Santa....amazing!

  44. I would love #1 to finish up a quilt! A friend my age told me at recess. I think my mom took it harder than I did.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would like either prize. My son found out 2 years ago when he was 10. Luckily he was willing and able to keep the magic alive for his sister.

  47. Oh FABRIC - yum!! YEs please !! My friend Shelley told me. I was 9 and she was 8 then I ran home and told my mom all upset what Shelley had sad then the next day Shelley said that she was just joking! Not nice. I'll never forget that day and where we were (her dads workshop amongst tools).

    ReplyDelete
  48. oh! your mini pouches are perfect. i've been wanting one just like this for my purse. thanks for the chance to win! i found out about the tooth fairy, easter bunny and santa all in one fell swoop when i was five. a neighbor kid told me santa wasn't real, and i asked my parents if that was true, and then i asked them about the others. thanks for the chance to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I like both giveaways! Santa was never an issue for me. I figured it was all a fairy tale, there were too many of them around.

  50. Those mini pouches are adorable and who doesn't love more fabric scraps? Thanks for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love scraps, so I choose nr 1! Santa, at an early age I discoverd my dad behind the mask... Don't know how okd I was though...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Gosh, you mean I have to choose???? Umm the scraps I think. because I have a very small collection of scraps and am always looking to expand them! x

    ReplyDelete
  53. I would choose number 1! My sister and I figured it out when we found a pile of gifts in the attic labelled from Santa!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I don't remember how I found out...terrible. My kids 10 and 7 still believe, but the eldest is starting to be suspicious...

    ReplyDelete
  55. Please enter me in both giveaways ... can't choose between the two. I really don't remember how old I was when I found out that Santa was a fictional character.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm a new follower of your blog. I don't do facebook.

  57. I love the pouches! We grew up Christian and not buying into the whole Santa thing.

  58. I'd love to win one of your pretty pouches!

    Um...not sure what you are talking about... Santa is real! Haven't you watched Miracle on 34th Street?? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'd love to enter for both but if I must choose, I'd choose the scraps!

    I honestly do not remember when I found out. My sister says she doesn't think I ever really believed. I was a very rational child...

  60. I love the scraps and the pouch is adorable so I will have to say both! I grew up celebrating Christmas but never was into Santa.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Both of course!
    I think I was about six when I figured it out. Saw my mom shopping as I recall!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would love a pouch. My son (nearly 9) found out about a month ago from a kid at school. My daughter (5) is still a firm believer.
    *big waves* from sunny Australia. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I would love both! My family never really pretended about Santa. All our presents were from each other.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love both prizes!
    But I'm confused... found out what truth about Santa? What am I missing here?
    :)
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would like to be in the draw for both.

    My kids stopped believing a few years ago now, however they started again after watching The Polar Express for a couple of years more

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yes, my 11 YO has been on the fence if he still believes or not. I think he's holding onto the belief for as long as he can. Maybe he's afraid he won't get gifts anymore if he doesn't? Both my kids almost heard on the radio to a show I was listening to when they were discussing when they found out their parents were Santa. I had to turn it off quick!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh scraps! I love love love scraps! I really can't recall that I ever believed in Santa. He was never really part of our Christmas traditions. We had Sinterklaas and Zwarte Pete, and I always knew they weren't real because my Oma was not as sneaky as she thought : )

    ReplyDelete
  68. Both giveaways are great. I think my children stopped believing in Santa when they were around 10 years old.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I just love scraps - We always did Breakfast with Santa sponsored by the school PTA - my youngest was finally into Kindergarten (two older) and that year, sitting on Santa's knee - he jumped up and yelled across the room - Mommy, my bus driver is Santa! Moment killer!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Ohhh I'm a sucker for fabric scraps! So pick me, pick me!

    I can't remember when I found out the evil truth about Santa, but I had younger cousins and we often spent Christmas together so I played along. My parents kept up everything even though I knew. But I was a bit naughty, I'd wake up super early, go out and peek at the stuff by the light of the tree and then go back to bed for a few hours once I saw what was there. So terrible! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  71. Well, neither my husband nor I are religious (hope that doesn't exclude us from the giveaway!!) but we were both raised with the belief in Christmas. I just love spending time off with my husband and son.

  72. It's a good thing I logged onto facebook today, or I would have missed the giveaways. Love your mini pouches. I think my sister Edith broke the news to me about Santa j/k

    ReplyDelete
  73. Chevrons! Count me in for #1. What do you mean the truth about Santa? Are you suggesting he isn't real? Gasp!

    ReplyDelete
  74. #2. You can't go wrong with zip pouches. Thanks! kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

    ReplyDelete
  75. Number 2 would be fantastic. I honestly don't remember when I found out but I think I was around 11 or 12. I accidentally ruined it for my little brother who is 10 years younger when he had told me he already knew there was no Santa and I basically agreed with him. I guess he was just testing me because then he proceeded to burst into tears and tell my dad I just told him there was no Santa. OOPS! I felt horrible! Luckily he was around 11, so it was about time anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  76. fabric pieces- always love mixing up the scraps :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Both are great. And I don't celebrate Christmas, so we already knew.

    ReplyDelete
  78. These are both so great, I would love to win either! I don't remember when I stopped believing, but my nine year is totally done with Santa, which means my six year old, who follows his older brother in all things, is done too :( At least my little four year old is still a believer!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'd love to choose a cute zipper pouch. My daughter is 9 and still believes in Santa. I have no idea when I found out the truth--I have 7 older brothers and sisters, so I'm sure one of them spilled the beans when I was pretty young.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Option two the pouches. My mom is dying to tell my 10 yr old nephew who suspects santa is not real, that when he was 3 and asked for a fire engine, the very expensive one where he and his brother could ride together in it, that it was her that gave it to him and not santa. We had to go to 3 stores to find that thing on christmas eve!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'd love to be entered for #1 and #2, thank you for the giveaway! I think somebody at school ruined it for me sometime between 4th-5th grade. I remember being so let down! I totally believed when I was younger, one Christmas I went downstairs and when I went back up to my room there was a record player waiting for me! I know my parents couldn't have sneaked up there and accomplished that :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love the pouch! I don't remember when I found out about Santa. I remember being skeptical for a year or so.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Love the pouches but I have so many - would prefer fabric :) I don't really remember, but I think I was also in the upper elementary age - I know my mom was very straightforward about it when I asked her if it was true, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I like both! I had started figuring things out about santa before I was about 11, and then my mom basically told me by asking me about the things SHE gave me in my stocking. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love fabric scraps! They are perfect for paper piecing!

    As for Santa - we never really grew up believing in him so there was no shock at finding out! My mum however overheard her dad talking about "playing Santa" when she was about 10 and was devastated! I think that's the reason she didn't do the Santa thing with us kids!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Would love to win either prize! My oldest is almost 3 and this is the first year that he really 'gets' Santa. It's so fun to see him so excited.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I would love the mini pouch!! I can't remember how I found out, I need to ask my mom!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Giveaway #2. I have always been told that Santa is not real.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Oh, those scraps make my heart beat faster! Love! Ok, don't hate but I never believed in Santa-he was always just another Christmas character like Rudolph or Frosty.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I would love to be entered into both!
    I believed in Santa until about 10 and I think all of my other friends knew before I did.
    Thanks for such a great giveaway.

  91. both - but I love playing with others scraps!

    I dont think I ever believed in Santa. My mother grew up without Christmas and never really did much for us

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm up for either! My mom told me about santa when I was in Kindergarten, maybe? I wasn't bothered by it. Presents are fun, Santa or no Santa! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love secondhand scraps - it is even in my blog name!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would love to win the scraps, because who doesn't love scraps?! But I may as well also enter the pouch giveaway because they are gorgeous - and you gotta be in it to win it!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I would love to win a bag. I found out when I saw my mom sitting at the sofa watching tv eating santa's cookies and drinking his milk.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Both! I was the kid who was never taught to believe in Santa. My mom thought he was silly. Thus, I am fairly sure that I was also the kid who ruined Santa for at least half of my classmates. So sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I would love to win either one of those prizes! Wow! :) I found out about Santa in 5th grade. My mom bought a teddy bear for me but said it was from Santa. I found the LTD tag on the bear. I asked my mom about it, in tears. She told me it was a bad economy and Santa had to lay off some elves and contract out some of his work. I give her a gold star for creativity, but I didn't buy it. sunnywilderman(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'd love to have a chance to win both. They're both wonderful prizes. I never believed santa was real, because I grew up in Israel, LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  99. My kiddos are so spaced out (21, 20, 13 and 3) that Santa will never die in this house!! My 13 yr old found out when this little jerk girl on the playground told him repeatedly - despite his argument, darnit! lol I'd love the scraps

    ReplyDelete
  100. I would like to win #1.

    carolinebock1 at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  101. My older cousin told me matter of factly one afternoon when we were doing homework together. Pretty sure I hit him :) I'd be happy to win either! Thank you for a great giveaway! transeau(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

    ReplyDelete
  102. I like option two. I still believe in Santa Claus. At least to some degree. I don't think there was ever a moment when someone spoiled Santa for me. My parents never made a big deal about it and I just always kept believing just a little bit.

  103. We kept our kids going until 9 yrs old with some serious neighbor-help. She offered to store and wrap the kids gifts as well as writing the santa tags in her handwriting.
    I bought a cute sign at a bazaar this year. "If you stop believing in Santa Claus, you get underwear."
    Thanks for the giveaway and please enter mine.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I would prefer the pouch, but would also love the fabric! My mom decided I was old enough and told me the truth just before Christmas. I cried. It's not a happy story. :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Those mini pouches are adorable. I'd have to chose one of them if I was lucky enough to win.

    I actually can't remember when I didn't believe any more but my husband and I are joking that our earnest nearly 10 year old might be the first child in the world who has to be told that Santa and the Tooth Fairy are fictional. He still believes in spite of peers starting to comment to the contrary. It is lovely and means that his younger siblings don't have to be safeguarded yet either.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I would love to win the pouch. I don't remember when I found out Santa was not real but I do remember being sent up to bed at my memere's house on Christmas Eve so Santa could come while we "slept". We would look out the window and swear we could see Rudolph (the lights from the radio station tower) after awhile the adults downstairs would start jingling bells which meant we could go downstairs and see what Santa had brought

    ReplyDelete
  107. Ooo! Both are tempting! But I LOVE other peoples scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Both! :-)

    I figured it out when I got a Mickey Mouse umbrella from Santa, but it was broken. My mom took me with her to Target to exchange it!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Whatdaya mean there's no Santa? I've got 4 kids that still believe in the idea of Santa and 2 grandkiddies that are just learning about St. Nick! Of course there's a Santa, and he lives right here in my heart!
    I can't tell you when the "truth" came out but sometimes you just have to believe for the sake of others ;)
    Love the fabric gems, thank you for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  110. #1 - the fabric bundle! I don't celebrate x-mas, so no broken hearts about Santa over here :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. #2!
    c_mcmullan(at)hotmail(dot)com
    My sister ruined Santa for me when she pointed out how his writing looked like my mum's!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I would enjoy either win. I think the fabric scraps would be fun to use, but your little bags are cute too. Thanks.

    I have no recollection of when I learned Santa wasn't real. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  113. The fabric would be wonderful and my goal in 2013 is to make a spiderweb quilt. I think I learned about Santa from someone on the playground who had an older sibling, but I was about 8. I believed in the tooth fairy for a long time! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would choose the fabric! I can't remember when I ever believed in Santa.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love scraps more than anything in the quilting world, so I am in for the fabric! My neighbor told me about Santa when I was about six years old and I called her a liar and stomped my little indignant self all the way home.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I have no memory of finding out Santa wasn't real....are you trying to tell me he's not? Please put my name in for both drawings both prizes are great.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I would like to be entered for the pouch.

    I was 4 when I realized Santa wasn't real because my parents used wrapping paper that was already in the house. It was yellow paper with clowns all over it, and I knew Santa would only use Christmas-themed paper. I got a sweet Barbie out of the deal, though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. I like you on Facebook, too!

    Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I'd love to win #2. Thanks for an awesome giveaway! Happy Holidays to you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  120. Both!

    And I learned about Santa early- kindergarten and then became THAT kid who told everyone. oops.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I'd choose the fabric - I love scrappy! I learned early - 5 maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  122. Your zipper pouches are so pretty. I'd definitely choose one of them.
    I don't remember when I found out about santa. Maybe 8 or 9? My kids though, they are just finally old enough to even get the whole Christmas thing. It's tons of fun.

  123. oh I'd especially love one of the darling pouches!

    ReplyDelete
  124. My scraps are getting low so I think I'd pick the fabric (although the pouches are super cute too!). I honestly can't remember how/when I found out about santa, although I do remember playing along after I no longer really believed...

  125. I'd like to be in the fabric giveaway

    I don't remember when I learned, but everyone in our family still get presents from "Santa"

  126. Shee-oot, sign me up for both of them! I don't remember when I found out. I do remember as a small little waiting up to try and hear the reindeer land on the roof. Then again I was watching a christmas movie on TV right now and the night security guard tells a little boy looking for Santa, "Listen, Santa died." Bahahaha. Only appropriate for pretend life though :)

  127. I already like you on FB from the last Christmas Giveaway and what a lovely year since then it's been.

    ReplyDelete
  128. And it's me one last time saying I also GFC follow you :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. Both please!
    I come from a family of six so I found out quite young!! When the eldest finds out they tend to tell their siblings!

    ReplyDelete
  130. both please, my boy *8* is undecided, we're hoping he doesn't twig properly until next year so his sister gets another year, she's just 5... we've invented franchised santas for the false ones you see in the shops etc, we've got courrier services for presents he's seen coming in the house...still gotta keep the magic alive this year

  131. How lovely, thank you for sharing. I would be happy with either prize. Do you know I never remember believing in Father Christmas as a child? My mum always hid the presents and we weren't allowed them until after breakfast when she would go and collect them from her room. We never had presents waiting under the tree or at the end of our beds in stockings. I always give stockings now because I felt deprived as a child.

  133. I am 31 and I still believe... because otherwise Santa won't leave me my stocking at mum's if I don't! It always pays to be careful, you never know... lol. I am a scrap a holic, so scraps would great! Merry Christmas! :)

  134. I would love a little pouch. Thank you.

    My children have always known the truth about Saint Nicholas! We never felt the need to really focus much on 'Santa'.

  135. Love digging in other peoples stashes. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I love both :) I always believe Santa exists.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  137. I would like giveaway #2. I found out when I found a list in my mother's purse that had 2 columns: gifts from Santa and gifts from us. I was about 9 or 10.

    ReplyDelete
  138. How could I ever say no to scraps?? Your pouches are super cute, so it is a tough call. I would certainly be happy with either.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Fabric is great. I saw my dad put gifts under the tree:)

    ReplyDelete
  140. I would love to be entered for either giveaway, please. :) And I found out about Santa when I went snooping in our barn and found all of his "special" wrapping paper, I was five and already a skeptic. :P Thanks for the great giveaways!

  141. I like you on Facebook now. :)

  142. i would love the fabric. sadly i was a scrooge who never really believed in Santa. i think my parents found out that i knew when i was around 7 or so. i think they were way more heartbroken than me.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I want to be entered in #2 the pouch

    Ahh Santa there is still no Santa here .. Santa is a Coca Cola merchandise thing ... we have the "Christkind" (Christmas child) who brings the presents... ehh when did I figure that one out ... hmm I think my parents weren't good at telling sotries, so when I asked them when I was 4 (that's what they told me) they sort of started a story which I wouldn't believe so in the late 3-year mode of why and yes ok and why, and how so - fashion I wore them down...

    ReplyDelete
  144. #1 (scraps) please.

    I was sure there was no santa when I smelled the Strawberry Shortcake dolls in my mother's closet. She tried to convince me I was wrong to which I replied, "Mom, I can SMELL them." That was that.

  145. New blog follower. (for scraps)

  146. I'm such a poor sewer, I'd like the mini pouch !
    I remeber being quite old when my mum told me about Santa, on a january day. I remember a little disappointment, but then I was offered too the opportunity to give presents and I just love that.

  147. I'd love a mini pouch!
    I don't remember when I found out about Santa but my little sister credits me with breaking the news to her.

  148. I would love to win a fabulous pouch!

    I learned at about middle elementary when my friends Mom told her. She immediately told me and I ran home and asked my mother. I think Mom was pretty mad, but she told me the truth.

  149. I'd like to be entered in both please! My older brother ruined it for me when I was about 6. He SHOWED me the hidden Santa stash. Rotten! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Oh definitely the scraps to add to a quilt. I don't remember when I found out but I'll never forget when my son found out from - are you ready? His grandmother - he was only 6 or 7 when she told him and broke his heart. I'll never forget holding him while he sobbed and then pitifully asked if the Easter Bunny was real. A terrible memory!!

    ReplyDelete
  151. I'd like to win either. I remember my brother telling me there was no Santa. We had gotten into an argument and he did it to make me mad.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Well, I really don't need any more fabric scraps...so I guess I would choose the adorable pouch. As for Santa...never believed in him.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Put me down for #1. I could use those in my hexie quilt

    ReplyDelete
  154. I like both giveaways! I don't know how old I was when I knew the truth about Santa, but I do remember how I found out. I had my suspicions, so I looked it up in an encyclopedia!

    ReplyDelete
  155. #1 Please. Honestly, my childhood story was a bit boring. My mother explained where the story of St.Nick came from and that his spirit still lives on today and I was happy. My sister in law, however, is so adament that her kids believe in santa that she goes out of her way. Last year she had me make tags from Santa so they wouldn't be in her handwriting and has had me create a letter online with postage from the north pole. Her daughter is almost ten. I'm curious to see how long this lasts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  156. BOTH giveaways! How could I chose!

    As for Santa - I can't remember how I found out but I am 1 of 18 cousins and my younger cousin still brings up I ruined it for her. I dont remember this but apparently I took her to the side at our grandparents house and told her the only way she could be part of the bigger cousins club was to believe there was no Santa (how mean of me!!!) I have 2 girls ages 2 and 1 and I hope they believe for years to come! Ashley abwinebrenner@yahoo.com

  158. I like both giveaways. I don't think there was one point when I found out for sure there was no Santa...I suspected for a while and tried to keep believing!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I like both giveaways! We're Jewish so my kids know Santa isn't real - but they still totally believe in the tooth fairy :)

    ReplyDelete
  160. Oh, this is so lovely! Please, enter me for both giveaways!
    As for me, I learnt the truth about Santa at school, when I was 7 & a friend arrived, really upset, & told us that she had found presents in her own armoire. Was I disappointed? No. Probably because I must have been already suspecting something, but also because I was in fact angry at my friend's mother: I thought she was really a stupid parent to hide presents in her child's armoire, somehow I resented her for breaking to pieces my friend' s dream.
    Which probably explains why I'm so excited with Giveaway Day every year!

  161. Both! I thought my mom would back me up that there was a Santa when I asked her. I was disappointed to learn the truth. We didn't have Santa with our kids.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Ooh, scraps, please! I was 'told' when I was in 4th grade, I think. My DD figured it out in 3rd grade, but is still insisting that Santa and the Tooth Fairy are real - I think she's afraid that her haul will decrease if she admits it.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Definitely both!! I kind of stopped believing in santa rather early and my mom just told me never to tell anyone that did believe in santa that he wasn't real. I don't know if I would do Santa with my non existent children.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Definitely both! I know that at some point I asked my mom, she gave her standard answer that of course Santa Claus was real and I said, "no, really mom, I want you to tell me the truth." I dont' know how old I was, probably around 10. Obviously, by the time I was asking I really already knew!

    ReplyDelete
  165. the fabric of course! i don't recall a specific instance in learning Santa wasn't real - I think it just faded naturally. we still get our gift from santa though. it was always 1 gift from santa that was left unwrapped under the tree.
