Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day

***Sign Up is now closed.  Thank you to all who entered!***

Welcome Sew, Mama, Sew visitors!  I hope you enjoy your stay.  Have a look around, the giveaway will still be here 🙂

What’s up for grabs, you ask?  Since this last weekend was the unofficial start of summer, I thought I would giveaway something summery.  Whether you live on the coast or in the center of the country, I firmy believe there is a surfer in all of us.  To celebrate that, I created the Surfer Nelephant.

DSCN3148

He’s yours for the low, low payment of leaving a comment about what you look forward to the most about summer.  Because I can’t possibly tell someone their idea of a good time is better than anothers’, I will choose the winner at random.  I just want to feed off your excitement.

You have through May 31 to enter, which is fortunate because I won’t be at my computer, and therefore will be unable to post anything that might bury this lovely giveaway.  I will announce the winner Monday, June 1.  And, yup, I’ll ship internationally.

(PS: Thank you, Larue, for enlightening me to this!)

    I LOVE that elephant. What I love about summer…. there is so much. Here in AZ its HOT, so I love little tan lines on my little girls shoulders, popsciles in the afternoon, grilling pizzas for dinner (because it’s too hot to cook indoors) I love how long the days are and that there is NOTHING to do but relax! I love that my husband is around more (He is a med student) I love the hot nights (as long as I can return to my airconditioned house) I love it all. Thanks for chance!

    Cuuute! Well…my favorite summer activities usually involve water. I just moved somewhere warm so I’m looking forward to this more and more as summer is arriving. Swimming, hanging at the beach, you name it. I’ve never surfed though. Someday. 😉

  23. carrie replied:

    I am so excited about summer. This year being the year that we finally get to move away from the cold Chicago climate to that of sunny Florida. I am looking forward to backyard bbqs, and swimming in the pool. Not to forget the 5 minute car ride that it will take to get to the beach! 23 days and counting!

    i’m most looking forward to watching my 2 year old play outside in the yard – and get all brown in the sun!

  25. melissa replied:

    THe thing I am most excited for this summer is spending time as a family. My husband is a teacher & works days, then also goes to school full time on evenings & weekends. I am a part time nurse & work evenings & weekends. So during the summer we see each other everyday!! rather than only 2-3 times during the week!

  26. meadow replied:

    The sun!

  27. Bethany replied:

    What a cute little elephant! They are one of my favorite animals right now. I am really excited to get to take a vacation with my family this summer. The first in a couple of years. We are going to the beach and to see a Hot Air Balloon Festival! How cool is that? I mean how many people do you know have gotten to see upwards of 50 hot air balloons at one time? I think it is going to be very exciting and I think my little ones will love it as well. Thank you for the great giveaway!

  69. Deb replied:

    Cute…my kids ADORE softies. Well, I am one of those people who get a little depressed over winter time so I really look forward to summer. Being able to take the kids on walks or to the playground, going swimming, going for my jog till almost 8pm because of the extra daylight…there are just so many things to look forward to with summer time!

  70. Andrea replied:

    Love it! There are so many things I look forward to in the summer but I think my favourite is sitting on the deck at the cottage with a good mystery novel.

    Thanks for the offer!

  88. Heidi replied:

    I think that more elephants SHOULD surf. In fact, all large land mammals should hang-10 now and again.
    That elephant is adorable!

  89. Sarah replied:

    I love that! My favorite thing about summer is longer days and warmer nights. I can’t wait!

  90. Emily replied:

    That Nelephant is awesome. This summer, I’m looking forward to closing on the new condo I just bought on my very own!!! Like a grownup.

  91. Katie replied:

    I love the fact that I can wear skirts. I love skirts with flip flops and I love have a warm breeze play around my legs. But what I don’t like is that every building you go into they are pumping the AC and you need a jacket. Cause who carries around a jacket in summer?

  92. Jennifer replied:

    Summer…love having the time off to go travel with my kids. I also love being able to bring out the flip flops and capris 🙂 This elephant is CUTE!

  93. marine_bio replied:

    Great elephant. My favorite thing this summer will be enjoying watching my puppy explore our beaches. She is a retriever and has already shown that she likes the water. It should be fun swimming and playing with her.

  94. Lindsay replied:

    Summer is all about gardening for me! I love that elephant!

  95. carol replied:

    My first bite of homegrown tomato, picked from my vine and crushed tarragon on it…warm…ummm
    The elephant might also like it

  96. messymama replied:

    I am most looking forward to winning this elephant to celebrate the beginning of summer…lol!

    On a serious note, we have a week long vacation to the coast planned and I am so looking forward to it. We also go fishing every chance we get in the summer and I can’t wait to go sit on the river bank with my hubby! Summer is awesome. 🙂

  97. ru replied:

    sun-brewed iced tea. going to the park after supper every night. s’mores on the open fire. my birks!! even though i am more of a boogie-boarder than a surfer, i still whole-heartedly approve of mr. nelephant.

  98. Michele replied:

    I look forward to time to read outside on my deck while the hummingbirds buzz around me.

  99. Jules replied:

    Thank you for entering me in your drawing for the cute elephant. He looks like quite the Dude!

    I look forward to summer for the yummy fruits & veggies that we will be harvesting from our garden. Nothing beats a dinner full of things you’ve grown yourself! Yum (and now I’m hungry)

  100. kelli replied:

    Cute elephant!
    I love having the sun up until late at night, lots of lying in the grass in the yard, being out of school, eating outdoors. I love summer!

  106. Sharon replied:

    My daughter would just LOVE THIS! I gotta say I am most looking forward to SLEEPING IN! Not everyday but once in awhile!Is that lame?

  107. Becki replied:

    I love elephants! Yay! My favorite part of summer is being able to sleep in and wake up to the sunshine on my face. Late summer nights with bonfires, s’mores and laughter from the kiddos is another bonus that is a close second. The lazy days of summer! The best time of year. :o)

  108. KarenD replied:

    Aw, he’s fun! I’m looking forward to playing outdoors and in the water with my toddler this summer.

    I’m looking forward to not being pregnant or having a newborn this summer! Love the elephant!

  110. Bladerunner replied:

    I am looking forward to working on my fiance’s yard with him – he’s recently gotten excited about having a vegetable garden (because he saw how great my stuff turned out), and we’re planning to have our wedding in his front lawn next spring. But first, much yardwork this summer to whip that yard into shape!

  111. Kris replied:

    Coming into winter here in Australia but so I’m looking forward to that in order to wear more hand knits but summer is always fun too

  112. Theresa B replied:

    I’m not entering myself since I’ve already won a fabulous creation of yours – but I wanted to say that I totally agree there IS a surfer in us all. My very first favorite songs was the Beach Boys “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.”

  113. Louise replied:

    So many things to love about summer – eating cold watermelon on a hot sunny day outside.

  114. Angela_P replied:

    No snow and warm/hot days. But I especially like the “no snow” part of summer. Did I mention there is no snow ??

  115. NatashaMay replied:

    Awesome giveaway! Cute little elephant. I love going to the beach in summer and I can´t wait for cherries. :)They don´t last for long but cherries are my fave thing in summer. Thanks for the chance.

  117. ida replied:

    We are having baby no 2 any day now, so this summer will be all about him and his 2 year old brother. 🙂

  118. Diane replied:

    My most favorite thing about summer is that my garden comes alive! All the flowers and bugs! No more cold – YEAH!!! Having a garden and fresh vegetables, and working in the garden with my grandchildren is absolutely without a doubt my MOST favorite thing about summer!

  119. Carlee replied:

  121. Sophie replied:

    Hello thank you for entering me in your give away. I am sooo happy summer is almost here the kids are scratchin’ at the doors to get out and run around, no more snow suits to put on, just long warm days of grilling and playin’ climbing trees (the kids not me hehe) and watching the excitement on my little ones face every time he finds a frog or cool looking bug 🙂

  122. Kathy replied:

    singinsweet2002@yahoo.com

  123. D'Ann replied:

    I love the flowers. The zinnia’s, daisy’s and verbena. I love sitting on the porch under the fan and watching the fire flies. I love the frogs singing (quite loudly) in the pond. I love the days s-t-r-e-t-c-hing out longer and longer. I love the colors of the sun painting the sky as it sets. Quite honestly. Whats not to love?

  124. Shelly replied:

    What a cute elephant! My favorite part of summer is the 4th of July. I love fireworks, watermelon, BBQ, and the laid-back holiday that it is.

  125. Bethany replied:

    Really cute elephant. I am most looking forward to my one week off. My mother-in-law takes my kids for a whole week….ahhhh!!! I can’t wait!! It will be very quit in my house come early July! Thanks for the giveaway!!

    Thanks for sharing your incredible talent!

  129. Collette replied:

    I’m looking forward to no socks. And fresh produce at the farmer’s market. And trips to the park without a coat. Come to think of it, I’ll be happy to put my son in his car seat without a coat–less hassle. And eating outside. Hmmm, just a couple of things!

    The softie is adorable–my son loves elephants so it would be particularly loved! 😉

  130. Eleanor (undeadgoat) replied:

    I’m going to California to see my Love Interest, a boy (when do they start counting as men?) that I met on the beach two years ago and haven’t seen since, though in the meantime we’ve fallen in love. It’s highly exciting.

  131. Rie replied:

    What I most look forward to summer is … looking forward to summer! As it is about to turn to Winter here in Australia and is starting to turn very cold, I dream to summer to days at the beach, and lounging around in the garden! But then winter turns to spring and spring turns to summer and then it is way too hot to be outside and we shelter inside with the cooler on!

  132. Katie replied:

    Summer here in Qld, Aust is all about the sun, beach and keeping cool.
    We’ve started a family trip tradition of packing up and renting a beach house for a week each Summer/Christmas. It’s awesome!

  133. Jasmine replied:

    Sweet, sweet sweet. Love it!

  134. Alisa replied:

    Cute elephant! I love summer because the kids are home and the schedule is much more relaxed.

  135. Annwen replied:

    Oh, I love picnics in the park, lazing around on a blanket under a tree. I love the long days, the sunshine, days at the beach. I love strawberries and manges, pineapples and watermelon slurped right off the rind and dripping on the ground. I love evening walks by the river to get icecream and swimming…..

  136. Rachelle replied:

    My favorite things of summer is that I’m out of school for the quarter, the farmers markets, and yard sales! I spend at least one weekend a month going to yard sales with friends and/or my parents.

  137. Robin in New Jersey replied:

    My daughter loves elephants! I love not having to do school(we homeschool.)

  138. Andrea replied:

    NY Philharmonic in the park (candles, picnic, music & fireflies) & visiting family!

  139. lelia replied:

    I absolutely LOVE to just hang out with my family at my parent’s cottage. We lounge in the water, act like kids again, and get to just spend quality time with my parents. It’s only more fun as we all are starting to have kids.

    And I have a son who would love a stuffie !

  140. Ashley replied:

    I’m looking forward to fresh, juicy peaches! And watermelon, nectarines, and strawberries! That’s a very cute toy, my baby brother would love it!

  141. Ali replied:

    I love elephants and that one reminds me of Florida.
    I like summer because the kids and I can take it easy, plus berry picking and used book sales and my mom comes to visit!

  142. Tawny replied:

    The thing I’m looking forward to this summer is happening tomorrow. Here in Winnipeg we have the Teddy Bear picnic in the park. I think my toddler is finally old enough to understand what is going on, so it’ll be extra great this year. Pancake breakfast starts at 9:00 and it’s supposed to be sunny … eeeeeeee 🙂

  143. Lisa replied:

    Summer has just left us in Australia and I am longing to be able to walk down to the beach with my kids again and play in the sand and watch then jump the waves!

  144. Marcella replied:

    My favorite part of summer is with school being out I get to spend more time with my husband and my dog. Also, all the birds are in at the nature preserve near my house and I get to watch them! Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  145. Jenny replied:

    Im pretty easy to please…I simply look forward to being outside during the summer…Indiana winters can be very cold, and we make the most of going outside, but with young kids, it just not very long…and in the summer the TV is turned OFF so much more without complains, love that too!
    Thanks for the chance to win your Nelephant!

    I’m looking forward to so much this summer. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, swim lessons for the kids, long afternoons outside, and a trip to the woods of Wisconsin.

    Looking forward to the summer holiday, finally getting to sleep in (I hope, if the kids let me), finally getting to eat ice-cream guildless, bike-trips with my family.

    Summer is when my yard comes alive with color from all the summer blooming flowers. I love taking my biking out and checking out all the beautiful yards and blooms, the color schemes give me ideas on quilt arrangements and patterns.

    school is out. I don’t go to school, but my husband is in grad school for what seems like the rest of our lives! Haha, and we are going on 2 vacations. Beach and Biltmore. My two favorite B’s!

    I am completely, totally, overwhelmingly in love with your nelephants!!! My first thought was that my great-grandson would adore him. Then I thought, ha!!! No way this little darling is leaving my house. I’ve grown attached just from the pictures!

    What do I love most about summer? The grandkids are out of school, so it’s a lot easier to arrange vists, and the one who doesn’t live in Texas gets to come for two whole weeks!!!
