Craft Bag Giveaway

Blogged under CFEs/Contests by Tammy on Wednesday 20 March 2013 at 6:46 pm

I have to admit to a problem I have. I’m addicted to bags. Totes, purses, sacks, small, medium, large, I cannot get enough of them. And, seriously, I do use them. So when a friend of mine showed me some products from a company called Thirty-One Gifts, well, I fell down the rabbit hole! I am now an official Thirty-One independent consultant, and I plan to talk about my new experiences as a “bag lady” now and then on this blog.

After signing up, one of the first thoughts that came to mind (other than I really want the Cindy Tote) was that I have to do a giveaway….now!

Why now? Why not wait until next month and start it at the beginning of the month like I normally do with my giveaways? Because now through April 1st, Thirty-One Gifts is having a wonderful special. If you spend $31, you can purchase a selected tote for 1/2 off. This just seems too perfect because you can buy a gift for someone and then also buy a gift for yourself.

All that said, you do not have to purchase anything from my independent consultant Thirty-One web site to enter the giveaway, but if you do, you get more chances to win. This is how this giveaway will work:

  • To receive one chance to win, go over to my independent consultant Thirty-One web site, browse the catalog, and then come back and post a comment telling me the name of a product you like, and if you feel chatty, tell me why you think it looks interesting. Do not post more than one comment.
  • To receive two additional chances to win, order at least one item from my independent consultant Thirty-One web site. For each item you order, you’ll receive two chances to win.
  • So if you post a comment and order one item, your name would go in the pot three times. If you post a comment and order two items, your name would go in the pot five times.

Okay, so what am I giving away? You can get a chance to win a Cinch Sac (pictured above), which normally retails for $20. This drawstring bag is a perfect knitting or crochet project bag, but it really has an infinite number of uses. It is about 18 1/2 inches high and 14 1/2 inches wide. It also has a zipper pocket on the front, so you can put notions in there.

Now here is some more info and disclaimer stuff:

  • I am an independent Thirty-One Consultant and the views expressed on this blog are mine alone and don’t represent the company’s views.
  • This is open to Continental US residents only. (I’m sorry, but shipping is way to high otherwise.)
  • Purchases of Thirty-One products from other consultant’s web sites or any place other than my own will not count towards entries.
  • Do not order through any parties I have set up because they are local to me, and more than likely you are too far away for me to deliver your products. If you want to find out about hosting a virtual or catalog party, contact me at tammypowley @ yahoo dot com.
  • The deadline for entry is April 19th, 2013 midnight ET. (Note that the 1/2 off deal from Thirty-One ends April 1st.)
  • During the few days after the deadline, I will randomly pick one winner. Make sure to include your email address when commenting. I will email the winner who will have two days after the drawing to reply back with a mailing address. Anyone who does not reply after two days will no longer be eligible to win, and I will draw a new winner.

For a look at the totes on special, I found an awesome YoutTube video here.

    I LOVE everything. It’s hard to figure out what I’m going to order, but I will be ordering some stuff for sure!!!!!

  2. Comment by Anne Marie — March 20, 2013 @ 11:06 pm

    I like the Your Way Cube. PVC window. How cool!

  3. Comment by Anastasia — March 21, 2013 @ 6:56 am

    I love the Organista Crossbody purse. I’m the kind of gal who needs a purse big enough to hold my purse stuff as well as at least one knitting project. That looks absolutely perfect!


  4. Comment by Timiae — March 21, 2013 @ 8:55 am

    I really like the Out N About Thermal. It looks perfect for carrying snacks and lunch for the baby, as well as breastmilk and goat’s milk for him.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Thirty One! I am a nanny/jewelry designer. For xmas last year, I got the Organizing Utility Tote and a Thermal Tote from one of my parents! I carry them both everyday! Now, I have my eye on a Fitted Skirt Purse! Pretty please count me in for this amazing giveaway! Thanks!

    Oh, I love that Inside-Out Bag. Except I would probably keep it too stuffed with goodies to reverse it. Love it!

  7. Comment by Yvette — March 21, 2013 @ 11:14 am

    I love the U R U tote! Perfect for knitting on the go, it’s pink and I can put my initial on it. Cool.

  8. Comment by Kathy Lindemer — March 21, 2013 @ 11:16 am

    I would also love the Organista Crossbody purse. I have been coveting it for awhile. I would love to win your giveaway. I love that bag, but if I won I wouldn’t mind a $20 credit for the Crossbody. I also would be willing to do a trade with my jewelry if you are a jewelry lover.

    All of the bags are lovely. I am a bag collector so I get pretty excited about them.

    I really like the Hostess Exclusive Party Thermal set in the black and white print. I’m always looking for the perfect picnic carrier!

    I love the retro metro weekender beause it is big and the colors are so bright and cheery! I like to imagine getting away for a short trip, and just packing enough to fit in that lovely bag! Thanks, Tammy! This is a fun idea you had! xox jean

    I really like the double thermal organizer. It would be great to take on a picnic, or for keeping water cool while on a day car trip.

    I love the inside out bags! My favorite is the black floral and pink. Its so versatile! πŸ™‚

  18. Comment by Paula — March 22, 2013 @ 7:14 am

    I love the large utility tote in the bright college colors. They look like a great size for packing up the Jeep for a weekend at the beach.

  19. Comment by Carolyn — March 22, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    I really like the mini utility bin. It looks perfect for a project that is too large to take out in public with me.

    I love thirty-one products, every woman should definitely own atleast one item from thirty-one! Some my favorites include the organizing tote, mini utility bin, large utility bin, flat iron case, keep it cady, and super organizing tote!


  22. Comment by bapsi — March 22, 2013 @ 6:32 pm

    I really like this rectangle! My favorite thing about it is that it comes in that dark grey/black shade which would probably go best with the rest of my room’s look. I’m a big fan of basic color themes with interesting textures or materials.

    I like the Double Organizer, altho I’d have liked to have seen the inside as well as the outside. I always carry craft projects with me when we go out, unless it’s just a quick trip to the store. This looks like it would be perfect for packing a couple of small projects that I could just grab-and-go.

  26. Comment by Maureen — March 24, 2013 @ 8:54 pm

    I love the Cindy Tote. It looks like the perfect purse for me! I have three small kids and I always have a lot in my purse!


  27. Comment by Anne in NC — March 25, 2013 @ 11:13 am

    I really like the Fold ‘n File in Party Punch — we really need that in our house. Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. Comment by Tee — March 25, 2013 @ 2:28 pm

    I really love the organizing items that you have available. Maybe I’m just really becoming a HUGE girly girl as I get older, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of organizing things with style and bold swathes of color.

    Hey, don’t get me wrong, those plastic boxes, shelves and other what nots are nice. They’re…just drab. I’m finding that I appreciate bright colors more than I did when I was younger. They give me a lift.

    The fold n file that goes with the organizing totes is an awesome idea.

  29. Comment by Angie Daggett — March 25, 2013 @ 10:19 pm

    I think the “Casual Cargo Purse” is me as really like that type of purse

  30. Comment by Connie Crill — March 26, 2013 @ 9:13 pm

    I use my organizing utility tote for my knitting! I would love to add the Large Utility Tote for my car trunk….to keep all the junk organized.

  31. Comment by Marlene — March 28, 2013 @ 3:11 pm

    I love the Inside Out Bag. This is the perfect size for work and gives me more options. Thank you for this giveaway.

  32. Comment by Lisa Smith — March 28, 2013 @ 9:04 pm

    I like several of the bags. If I could get one today it would be the retro weekend tote. I need a nice bag large enough for a couple days clothes and comfortable to carry.

  33. Comment by Luv2CUSmile — March 29, 2013 @ 10:58 am

    This is so cool! I am a bag freak too and love thirty-one!
    Okay, hard to choose just one as my fav because, again, i am a bag freak! LOL
    I love the Retro Metro Weekender for the size and zipper but i guess the Retro Metro Tote is my choice for pockets on the inside and out… but i also like the Super Organizing bag… again zipper and pockets.
    I will say, i wish the catalog listed the “names” of the prints and an option to see the bag in said print choice. I also wish they would show the inside of the bag… i have told others this before. Just wish they would start doing that…
    Oh email is Luv2CUSmile6670 at (yahoo)
    i saw you on Rav posting this and my user is same as name.

  34. Comment by Celeste — March 29, 2013 @ 12:33 pm

    Love the Retro Metro totes — they seem to be sturdy and able to hold plenty!

  35. Comment by JoyceAnna — March 29, 2013 @ 12:41 pm

    Hello…found your giveaway on Ravelry. I love the organizing utility tote. It fits my laptop, files and my knitting for work.

  36. Comment by Amanda — April 1, 2013 @ 9:22 am

    I have really, really been wanting a retro metro tote. i think it would make a great knitting bag or a great purse!

  37. Comment by Rebecca — April 1, 2013 @ 6:31 pm

    I like the ‘U R U Keep-It Caddy.’ I think it would work well for the space between the kids car seats and keep the floor from getting junky. rebecca342(at)gmail(dot)com

  38. Comment by Dena — April 4, 2013 @ 12:31 pm

    Looking at all the totes and bags because a knitter needs bags. But then I happened on the double pinch coin purse. I have one like that. I don’t know where I got it but I have had it for over 30 years. It is perfect for carrying my tatting. I have marked it to order but I leave in a few days to travel and it will have to wait until I get back.

  39. Comment by Rebecca — April 5, 2013 @ 7:07 am

    I love lots but the Hang Up Home Organizer would be a great item for our schoolroom. Perfect to hold a calendar, organize projects, gives me space for either a supply shopping list OR to write down the day’s weather. The best part though, pockets to hold all our dry erase markers and eraser!

  40. Comment by Jan Isaacs-Wade — April 6, 2013 @ 12:26 am

    Now I am noticing Thirty-One bags everwhere! I really love the super big tote with all the outside pockets. It can be used as an everyday tote or a small weekender bag. It’s fabulous! Your fabrics are also so durable.

  41. Comment by Suzanne Shattuck — April 6, 2013 @ 12:28 am

    I like the super utility tote. It was a very hard choice!

  42. Comment by mello — April 6, 2013 @ 11:17 pm

    I like the super organizing tote! I like its large size and rectangle shape.

  43. Comment by Elizabeth — April 8, 2013 @ 8:00 pm

    I think I love every 31 bag I’ve ever seen! LOL But checking out your online catalog, I really love the Retro Metro Weekender in that beautiful floral print! πŸ™‚

  44. Comment by Amanda — April 15, 2013 @ 5:46 am

    I just love Thirty-One. I got my first (31) purse for Christmas and I absolutely love it! So hard to decide, I would probably have to go with the Retro Metro wallet or the your way cube.

  45. Comment by Carmen — April 18, 2013 @ 9:00 pm

    I’ve had my eye on getting a Large Utility Tote for a while now – but I didn’t realize I could get with my favorite college team logo on it! Thanks for the giveaway

  46. Comment by Shannon — April 19, 2013 @ 9:19 am

    I love the inside-out bag, because it is like two bags in one, and useful for lots of different things.

  47. Comment by Dani — April 19, 2013 @ 11:34 am

    I really love the Keep it Caddy!
    I have a larger tote (Organizing Utility Tote) that I’ve been using for large crafts for over a year, the Keep it Caddy is more compact and portable! πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    As I was glancing through the catalog, with my 13yo daughter peering over my shoulder, we both decided that the Retro Metro Bag would make an AWESOME bag for my Girlie to carry around her current favorite novels in (she’s a voracious reader!) And of course, she’d like the light blue color! πŸ˜€

    love the large super organizing tote! Perfect! :}
