Guess the Gender Giveaway

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  Next week is kind of a big week around here, as we get to find out if we're having a boy or a girl.  My hubby and I are just so grateful to be having a third that we truly don't care either way.  Plus, we're already so blessed with a healthy boy and girl.  We almost feel like we're being selfish even having another.  So, we just want what the Lord wants for us.  But everyone seems to have an opinion of what they think we're having.  So, to thank you all for being my faithful followers, even when I'm too tired to cook up anything creative to share, I thought it would be fun to put together a little crafty giveaway to the person who guesses the right gender.  Here's what's up for grabs.
And just because there's an awful lot of stuff I had to bury to fit it all in one photograph, how about a few close-ups?  That's (1) two, Paper Studio, black, damask, patterned papers leftover from my brother's wedding; (2) Hambly woodgrain transparency; (3) three, Hambly, screenprint, patterned papers; (4) four, My Mind's Eye, Hip & Luxurious Basics, patterned papers; (5) seven patterned papers from Jenni Bowlin's Black and Red Collection; (6) 24 sheets of 6 x 6, sei, Homestead Companion foil, pearl, and patterned papers; (7) 18 - 4.75 x 6.75, double-sided papers from K&Company; (8) K&Company Tag Pad...
(9) October 2012 Issue of CARDS Magazine; (10) April 2013 Issue of CARDS Magazine, because it's filled with baby creations in honor of mine :); (11) Faber-Castell watercolor canvas art complete kit; (12) Mix & Match Mixed Media Aquarelles & Ink from Faber-Castell; (13) Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen...
(14) three sheets of K&Company, Brenda Walton, embossed stickers; (15) K&Company, Tim Coffey, embossed stickers; (16) American Traditional, sweet baby pastel stickers; (17) Stickopotamus word bubble stickers; (18) two packages, EK Success, Jolee's Boutique, dimensional, Halloween & Disney stickers; (19) K&Company dimensional stickers; (20) Piggy Tales cardstock letter stickers; (21) My Little Shoebox mini alphabet stickers; (22) Doodlebug Design alphabet rubons...
(23) K&Company rosette; (24) Doodlebug Design layered chip album; (25) Piggy Tales drawbridge book; (26) flair from findingnana; (27) 7 Gypsies clips & Blue Ocean photo turns with brads...
(28) Tiny Woods and Candy Lane Collection clear stamps from KaiserCraft; (29) sei black photo corners; (30) KaiserCraft Coconut paper blooms; (31) gear chipboard album from Maya Road; (32) two yards, red, polka dot ribbon from Taylored Expressions; (33) So Saffron grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up; (34) Maya Road, metal, floral trinkets...
and a pillow box containing (35) three, Maya Road, vintage camera transparencies; (36) two, Maya Road, fabric blooms; (37) two, wood veneer bits from Studio Calico; (38) Freckled Fawn resin typewriters; and (39) Basic Grey, wood veneer, mailing embellishment.
Just leave me a comment below, telling me whether you think we're having a boy or a girl.  I know there will be a handful of you who guess one way or another, so random.org will pick the official winner from the unofficial correct pickers.  And just because I know it matters to some of you.  At the moment, I'm craving dark chocolate (I've NEVER liked that stuff!) and bananas and am totally disgusted by coffee (I used to love it.).  I'm no longer feeling the least bit sick, just EXTREMELY tired.  Fortunately, my doctor has given me the go ahead to have a little Diet Coke each day.  It seems to get me through, and some people say that it even combats nausea.  Who knew?!  And here's how I'm carrying at the moment.  We're 19 weeks.  That's halfway in my book, y'all, especially since both Ezekiel and Adina were ten days early.
I'll leave the giveaway open until just over a week from today and announce a winner the first full week in October.  Good luck, and have a wonderful weekend, friends!
