That is exactly what we have given each other. When I came up with this giveaway, I really had doubts that you would take the time to write out a whole story, especially if it, well, exposed some embarrassing moments. Oh was I wrong. You have had no trouble bearing your souls (and other body parts) for a chance to win. If you haven't read them all, I encourage you to take an instant vacation. Thank you so much, my friends. We all know each other a little bit better now, don't we? You made me tell 4 stories so you are getting to know me quite well.

The #1 winner: Infarrantly Creative. I actually got a few emails from people saying they peed their pants when they read this one. I'm hear to testify...I laughed so hard I cried (and peed) Contact me for your Summer Soiree giveaway.

The #2 winner: Mollie. Your mom is hilarious. Maybe you can make her something with the laminate for what you all put her through.

Another Summer Soiree Giveaway

My new fabrics are hitting the stores. And guess what? There's another giveaway for Summer Soiree fabrics over at Sew Love Fabrics. And you don't have to work nearly as hard as I made you. 12 one half yards of my Summer Soiree. Go check it out.


  1. Holy pajamas I won! Oh man you just made my day. I was all ready to send the troops to your blog to vote for mine...I thought you were going to have an online voting or something. Whoop! Whoop! Sliding across the floor naked in front of a cleaning lady was totally worth it now :-)

  2. Oh goodness, by that comment alone, it sounds like I need to grab a glass of red and read through those stories... when the kiddos are asleep and not writing on the walls with a sharpie, of course.

  3. Okay, so I am too late for a giveaway but I finally thought of a funny or atleast interesting water story.

    The summer after my sophmore year of college I led backbacking trips in the upper penninsula of Michigan. Most of the trips were at various national parks where we would take kids hiking, white water rafting, and rock climbing. {Honestly, now that I am a mother, I have no idea how I took a pack of wild junior highers rock climbing on the face of a cliff without having a heart attack, but I digress.} As I was saying, in between these trips, we sometimes led wilderness survival courses for teens and pre-teens at our base camp on Fence Lake. Mostly this couse included how to identify what things were edible, how to identify skat {animal poop}, how to tell direction without a compass, how to start a fire, etc... you get the idea. Sometimes, we would also teach the kids how to sail a tiny little sunfish sailboat. Well, one windy day, two kiddos decided they were going to take mattern into their own hands and learn how to sail the sail boat on their own, sailing it out into the wind on very chilly and choppy water. They were able to maneuver the boat to the middle of the lake with the wind, but couldn't get the boat back to shore. They started panicing. One female counselor came to the rescue with our camp ground's only motor boat.

    Maybe it's because the kids were screaming and panicing. Maybe it's because it was a chilly windy day. Maybe she was tired. I don't know why, but for whatever reason, she decided to tow the boat back by tying the boats together side to side, rather than stem to stern. Well, can you guess, when she gunned the motor, what happened? That's right, both boats filled with a gush of water and went plummeting to the bottom. All involved survived, but were indeed shaken and slightly worse for wear. Doesn't this make you want to rush out and send all your kids to summer camp?!

  4. Gosh, I was so excited yesterday...I called and e-mailed every person I know and totally spaced it on commenting on your post.

    Thank you so much for picking my little funny. I am estatic and my poor mom is mortified:)
