Giveaway!

I had so much fun making my first zippered pouch, that I decided to whip up another - for one of you

This time I added a ruffled pleat and flower; and yes, my fabric choice was in every way influenced by the ice storm we are enduring here in Oklahoma. Upon gazing at this little bag I am transported to a tropical locale where fresh pineapple slices and macadamia nuts (chocolate covered, of course!) abound.


Who knew a yard of fabric could provide such an escape? (Although, I do wonder why I only think about food in my imaginings...)

Back to the giveaway. 

To enter, just leave a comment telling me where you would travel if money were no object

I will randomly choose a winner on Sunday (1-31-08) evening. Good luck!

Hmmm, I think I would travel to Italy. Hubster has family there and boy do they cook. I wouldnt have to step foot in the kitchen. I would love to roam around and see the sights, all that history, and of course the churches... Pictures are amazing but I bet up close they are beyond beautiful.

I am a long time lurker. Delurking cause I loved this question. I need a vaca, lol.

I love love your blog though! keep it up. (I still love the little people and doll house)

Janelle said...

Honestly, where WOULDN'T I travel if money was no object?

Paris, Spain, Portugal, Italy (Rome, Venice, and Florence), Greece, London, Ireland, Vatican City.

I think that covers most of Europe.

Then there's Cairo and the pyramids. Moscow (I wanna see St. Basil's basilica).

Mexico and just about anywhere in Latin America.

Alaska -- a cruise would be awesome!

Every state in the USA. And all the national parks.

Did I leave anything out?

Oh yeah, Beijing and Hong Kong.

nicole said...

I can totally relate to Janelle's answer. There are too many places to choose. But at the top of my list is Greece. My grandparents went there when I was young and I've wanted to go ever since. I'm a huge fan of Greek Mythology and Greece would be a dream come true.

Van said...

I would take my littlest RedHen to Paris, France....she LOVES everything french and fancy....she's a diehard Fancy Nancy Fan.....she even speaks french....believe me she gets some funny looks when she does it in public....

lisavengesta said...

don't laugh. i'd go to disneyworld. only becaue the first time i went i was 14 and had the flu and had a horrible time... i'd love to redo it, but being overseas makes it sort of tough and expensive! i love the zippered purses :)
ps. so far i've been to the places that everyone else picked.

Miscellany Mom said...

I think I would travel to Australia. My hubby has been there and my best friend is going this year. That's a beautiful pouch by the way!

sewmelody said...

Hmmm...If money were no object, I would buy a huge RV and travel with my family around the entire United States. My first thought went to exotic foreign localities but then I realized that I haven't seen even a fraction of the glory and beauty of my own country!

krista said...

I would travel to Brazil. My husband and I have been wanting to go there for so long......hopefully someday!

Kristi said...

If money was not an object I would do a world tour. That would be glorious.
We would definitely make a stop in Scotland. In fact it would be our priority number one stop. My husband's best friend lives there and I have never had the pleasure of meeting him. What a fun trip it would be. Since I can't make it to Scotland right now, that adorable zipper pouch would be a great consolation prize! My make up bag broke and I am currently using a ziplock bag.

Mique (as in Mickey) said...

Oh my- the cuteness!
I want it bad.
I've been lucky to travel (lots) and would love to take my husband to Spain or back to Brazil with him. We like tropical places.
Oh wait- I still have never been to Switzerland where my mother-in-law is from. I want/need to meet her mom.

Lindsay said...

Morocco! More specifically Marrakesh, the land of sunny olive groves, warm mint tea and medieval Islamic architecture. My husband and I never got a honeymoon because he is in the military but someday we will go!

Sue said...

Living in the tropics (it's 33degrees and 90%humidity today) I'd love to go to Greenland or Iceland

Louise said...

Oh my goodness, there are so many places in Europe I'd love to go to, but I would have to say that I'd love to visit Japan first - the country is so beautiful, and they have lots of lovely fabric shops ;)

abby said...

I would love to get to travel to each of the 50 states! Or Europe would be awesome too. Right now anywhere pretty much sounds good.........

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

What a sweet pouch - you are right it looks very exotic! I would love to travel to Canada and Ireland.

Christine said...

ooooh, what a gorgeous bag you made! I stumbled upon your blog a while back and have been a lurker, but I've enjoyed your posts & great crafty inspiration :)

We're in Texas - and enjoying the same lovely winter weather! I'm thinking I'd travel some place tropical, but dang if I wanna get in a bathing suit right now. I'm not ready for that yet!

I think if money were no object, I'd go back to Europe. I studied in Spain in college, but DH has never been. That would be a super-fun trip!! France, Spain, Italy....wherever our fancy led us!

Jennifer said...

I would take my husband and twin girls to Australia, hands down!

Rachel said...

Very nice! I'm money were no object, I would go west. I have never been west of PA!!!

Jennifer said...

If money were no object, I would travel to Scotland, Romania, Pakistan, and Turkmenistan to visit relatives. I have them in all of those countries! Then I'd swing by Australia on the way home for fun. :)

Katiebelle said...

I would take my mom to Italy. Florence has always been her dream and since we had zero money when I was growing up that was never a possibility. I would like to repay her for being such an amazing mom even with our situation being not that great.

Missy said...

A zippered pouch is on my to-do list. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

I am stuck at home recovering from a stomach bug & helping my twin three year olds recover. I would choose to go to Cancun. My husband & I went in Feb '08 (and right before I left I caught my daughter's stomach bug & was sick while in Cancun) so I really want to go back.

Teresa said...

Gosh, if money were no object, I'd love to go see the Antarctic. That was a tough choice!

Natalie said...

I would stay at the nicest, fanciest, KID FRIENDLY resort in Hawaii with my husband and my kids. Chad and I never had a honeymoon (he was off to perform for the troops at a naval base in Japan 2 days after we got married) and we just never were able to go!! Hawaii has always been somewhere i would LOVE to go!!

Libby said...

LOVE this cute bag :) I would love to go to Greece!

Michele said...

I think I'd like to check out the US. There's so much to see!

After that I'd want to visit Israel and walk where my Savior walked.

Mrs. Olsen said...

That pouch is so cute!!!! I'd go on a Carribean Cruise, maybe to Jamaica. I love that they are all-inclusive and you go to interesting places and you couldn't stop relaxing even if you wanted to! rebolsen at gmail dot com

The Peterson family said...

what a sweet giveaway! I love traveling and would love to go to Alaska or Europe or just back to Hawaii to relax beside the ocean!

Bahama Shores Mama said...

ok...........do I have to limit it? Can I just say EVERYWHERE? No? Ok, then I'll have to go with what popped into this crowded head this morn......

A villa in Tuscany.

Ahhhhh........

Michelle said...

Hi there, I'm a new reader/blogger (just discovered this blog world). My eyes are burning because I stayed up until 3 a.m. looking at your blog along with others. I love everything and the inspiration!

Now onto the question....If I could go anywhere I would escape the parenting of two sets of twins in Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Fiji. I would want to visit all of the islands while I was over there!

Liberti said...

If money were no object!?! WOW! Wouldn't that be nice! I would take months off and see the world! I would hit the 7 wonders, the orient, an Africa Safari, Down Under, Paris, France, Italy, Fishing in Alaska, Hawaii, Caribbean and a stop in each and every state!

Huse Yo Mama said...

I just love this pouch! Good job! If money was flowing freely, I'd say I'd be going abroad. But, I really hate long flights, so honestly there are a TON of beautiful places in the U.S. I haven't visited. With this pouch, I'd definitely start somewhere in Hawaii!!!

Amanda Wheeler said...

I would go to Italy! I could go for some fresh pasta right about now.

Amanda

Sara said...

If money was no object.. ohh, where wouldn't I travel?! As a family we would travel the whole US and a few foreign countries... Then the girls and I would would take off on our own since Hubs doesn't care for certain countries that I would like to see!! lol

That zippered pouch is very darling! I have never worked with a zipper before. I am petrified to change the "foot" on my sewing machine!! lol

Kim said...

Greece. Looks like we might be able to score a group discount ;)

I would love to take my children, especially the oldest ones but wouldn't it be great to go with just my hubby!!! Since money is no object I can just go again when my kids are older, right? ;)

Love your precious things and your blog :) It's a little ray of sunshine!

Blessings.

Teri said...

ITALY!! I would definitely go to Italy..the Tuscan region. I would love to see the famous fountains, Rome, Naples and everywhere in between. I think the food would be wonderful and the landscape gorgeous beyond. (and of course, i would have to take a sidetrip to Paris-while I was there :))

Annette said...

If money were not an object, my husband and I would go back to Italy. We got engaged there and are looking forward to going back one day!

Sara said...

My husband and I would love to visit Machu Picchu in Peru!
Love all your projects & ideas.

Meg said...

I just came across your blog last night- I am so excited to try the little dollhouse and peg people!

If I could go anywhere I would head off to Hawaii- I've never been and these cold Michigan winters last FOREVER!

Carrie said...

What a cute, cute little bag!

I'd go anywhere tropical...so tired of these freezing temps! So maybe Jamaica, the Bahamas, heck anywhere that has 80 degrees and a beach!

K, I'll go pack my bags!

Rambling Girl said...

Awhh this is so cute!

Where I would travel if no object? well there are lots of places to go see...I have often thought of this before to...I would love to see New York City...all the bright lights and shows. One day I will.

Natalie Jane said...

Paris! I took years of French with dreams of cheese and bread. I still have never been. Poor me. That bag would sure cheer me up!

Man and Kat said...

That pouch is so cute! Well, first I would go on a cruise to Alaska with my hubby. Then go to Germany. Then to Australia. Then to Hawaii. And for my hubby, all national parks that have awesome rock climbing.

Barbara Myltschenko said...

wow if money were NO object. i think that i would like to travel to ukraine. my father-in-law was born and living there for many years before coming ot Canada, it would be nice for my husband to see where he came from.

jill said...

Italy! We'll make it there sometime!
That CUTE little bag makes me think of Hawaii though, and I'd love to go there again too!

Linda and Greg said...

This is a hard one, but I think somewhere in Europe would be my pick...Italy maybe? Though, warm weather sounds good right about now, so maybe the Greek Isles?

Thanks for such a great giveaway!

Alicia @ Oh2122 said...

Cute!

I would go back to Ireland, and throw the rest of the UK in there.

It's a wonderful place, and despite it's bad weather rep, IT DOES NOT SNOW.

Rain I can handle.

Jo said...

I would send my husband on a trip to outer space! Not because I want to get rid of him, mind you, but because it is a dream of his. I wouldn't want to go because I am nervous enough flying in a commercial airliner!

Holly said...

I would want to go to Italy. My dad spent a lot of time there as a child, then my mom backpacked all over Italy while my dad was on his Navy ship and NOW I have a missionary friend that lives there. . .I want to see what they have all seen.

Kim said...

Hawaii. No doubt. I don't want to worry about a language, but I want beaches and pineapples.

Ginger Nelson said...

I would go anywhere away from here! I would love to spend time in mountains somewhere.

Jenn said...

Cute bag! I've always wanted to visit Ireland.

Lisa211 said...

Hawaii---for sure!! More importantly than where I would travel, however, is how long my trip would be. If money were no object, it would be a leisurely visit, with one week to shrug off the rements of work and home responsibilities and at least two more weeks to relax and settle in!

Diana said...

No doubt about it...Italy! I would love to trace my family's roots (oh, and eat lots of pasta, too)!

Super-cute bag, by the way. I would love to own it!

Angie said...

I think I would travel to Isreal and walk where Jesus walked..

Carrie said...

Hawaii!

Meg said...

I would travel to Fiji and maybe a quick trip to Australia since you're already practically there :)

Sitting on the beach reading a book is exactly where I need to be right now.

pumpkin seed said...

That is THE MOST adorable little clutch I have EVER seen! Love the fabrics!
You know, I don;t think about traveling very often beacause I'm pretty much a homebody and hoetown girl...I love my little city where everybody knows everybody and memories are long lasting...
I suppose though, If i were to travel ANYWHERE it would be to Italy...I just love the romance and the nostalgia!

Jill said...

Oh what a precious bag- it looks like "sunshine"!- I would love to go to St.Johns island, Greece and Ireland!
What fun!
Blessings!

isaiah68 said...

that is the cutest thing i've ever seen! if money were no object, i don't think there's anywhere i WOULDN'T go! but, seeing as we're in the middle of yet another blizzard here in ohio, i think my first choice would be somewhere warm and tropical. maybe bora bora or somewhere equally lush. mmmmm, sounds very nice right now!

MammaDucky said...

I would LOVE to go anywhere, so long as my whole family could attend. I absolutely hate being so far from my family, so any locale would be alright with me so long as we were all together.

The Montalbos said...

Great pouch!

There are so many places I would go but off the top of my head and with cold weather in mind... Hawaii and Bora Bora (Doesn't it SOUND cool just sayin' it?)

Christy said...

oh....europe; primarily the mediteranian countries...good food/warmer climate!

Kerrie said...

I too am feeling the winter blues and would love to travel someplace warm right now, but if money were no object, I would have to say Italy. I love the culture, the history and the food! I also love the bag!

brenda and lorin said...

that's a hard one! i looove to travel and experience new cultures, however, i am far from my family. So... if money were no object, i would travel to see my mom in CT like every weekend!

Tracie said...

If money were no object, I would travel to Italy. My dad's family were immigrants and my great-grandparents were born in Naples. I would LOVE to see where they lived.

The Dopp Family said...

I was born in Germany, but left when I was 18 mo. old. I would love to go back.

Jessica G said...

I would go back to Jamaica. We went there for our honeymoon and I dream of it almost everyday. Thanks

Christian said...

We moved across the country this winter and I missed out on all the snow! So I would go skiing in the Rockies for a couple of weeks, with a cabin at the bottom of the slopes so that we could just ski right on and right off. Loads of hot chocolate, potato soup, chicken soup, chili, and all the family and friends that we could convince to come with us!

Jenn C. said...

I think I'd take my husband to Ireland and soak up all the green! Sorry, no beaches and sand and coconuts for us! (We sunburn too easily :)
Jenn
plaidjenn@yahoo.com

Sheila said...

I don't just want to take a trip somewhere else, I want to MOVE somewhere else! Since money is no object, I'm going to move to either south Texas or Florida. :) (From frigid Colorado) You did a great job on that!

Lindsay said...

I would go to Paris if money were no option!

kristen said...

I'm a so. Cal girl and have never been to the East Coast. So that is where I would want to go! Thanks!

kristofer312 at gmail dot com

Charissa said...

I'd love to go everywhere if money were no object. I'd take my whole extended family with me because it would be more fun. Europe, anywhere tropical, places in the Orient. I'd go anywhere I could get.

I love the bag! So nice!

Meredith @ Eisele Family News said...

Well, if I were made of money, I would probably go to Ireland...or Italy...But, I AM going to Mexico on a FREE vacation (paid for my loving in-laws) in March--and this would be the perfect accessory for the trip! :)

Tricia said...

Oh, love the zippered pouch and what a fun question! I've ALWAYS wanted to travel to Ireland. I was supposed to go in college, then the summer class was cancelled and another opportunity hasn't ever really presented itself. We're having ice storms here today too...I'd rather be anywhere warm right now!

Boo and Hooties Mom said...

That's a hard one considering I would love to go to so many different places. If it were up to me...Italy, my daughter would pick Paris, my son would pick Mexico and my husband would pick Spain. I would be blessed to go to any of these places!!!!!!
Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Nick, Liz, and Lainy said...

Australia to see the great barrier reef and kangaroos that would be so awesome.

My sister in law e-mailed me your blog a couple of weeks ago and now me and my five sisters have all gotten addicted to it we also are big into crafting and love seeing your new projects. One of my sisters have five girls so your girly crafts are great gift ideas for all of my nieces.

Leanne Helums said...

If money was not an object I would travel to Italy. I just think that it would be beautiful and the food...Oh do I need to say more. I think the food would be wonderful!!!!

Love your blog since I just recently discovered it.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for this giveaway! It is beautiful! I would take a cruise around the Hawaiian islands. What a delightful trip that would be!
melanie@familykendall.org

Emily said...

I would love to spend a vacation on a deserted island. Just me and the hubby soaking up the sun and reading some good books.

I would also love to go on a Disney Cruise, or any cruise for that matter!

Macy and Lucy said...

I am really wanting to go back to Disneyworld!! I know you need a vacation after a vacation to Disneyworld...but I am begging my husband everyday to go back with our little girls!!

Love the little purse...and I love those itty-bitty cookies...I may have to try those!!

Hadley Coble said...

I think I'm going with sewmelody's answer too. We have always wanted to spend several weeks traveling in an RV when our kids are a bit older, but I think it would be fun to take a couple months or so and travel all around. It would be the perfect homeschool classroom!

Mamaduso said...

Well considering it is cold and wet in the NW I would go somewhere warm and dry. Mexico or Hawaii. Somewhere tropical.

Kristine said...

Love your blog! I just actually returned from Nicaragua, where I've spent a lot of time working. I took supplies for my dear mom friend to make silhouettes of her girls. She loved it! I'd go back to Nicaragua if money were no object...

kellydee said...

Hi - LOVE your blog! I would love to go to Paris or Hawaii, just any change of scenery would be great actually! Thanks for all your great ideas!! I have tried several of them and they actually turned out cute.

kellydeestultz@yahoo.com

Tracye said...

I'd go to Europe... all over! Just about every country... and all the big tourist spots!

kellydee said...

Okay, I can't see my post, still new at this. if i'm posting twice - I'M sorry! Anyway, I would love to go anywhere, but my my top pics would be Paris or Hawaii. Thanks!!

Sam D. said...

So many choices. I think I would go to Russia. Although there are many other places I haven't been and want to go Russia popped in my head so it must be the answer. I want to see all those colorful buildings and wander around. Its such a large country there has to be a ton to do. Other wise, I think the meditarrian.

SoBella Creations said...

If money were not object I would travel to Paris. My 5 year old is in love will France. She loves Fancy Nancy who also loves all things French.

Jodie Allen said...

so great! i actually was so inspired by your pouch idea that I cleaned out all three of my diaper bags I rotate through and will pick up some bags this week hopefully to organize, as there is no way me, the sewing machine and ZIPPERS are close enough friends! :) I would love this cutecutecute bag though!

OH, and I'd go to a beach. Any beach that has sun, warmth and NO kids!

TwoHeartsTogether said...

Without even seeing you giveaway question...looking at the cute purse, I instantly thought of the island HAWAII because of the bright colors, flower, and swirl design. After seeing your questions, I knew Hawaii was already in my heart and had to comment to vicariousally live my trip to Hawaii though this comment :)
Aloha~

Jill said...

Way cute! Thanks for the giveaway!

I would first take my Mom to New York to do the whole nerdy tourist thing. Then I'd take my husband to Scotland... Ooo, and a superbowl - any superbowl. Stupid money ruins everything.

Thanks for the chance!

Right now all I can think is warm...I love Hawaii and want to visit the island of Kauai.

Cute zipper bag!

ReminisceHeirlooms said...

I would love to go to Australia. Since I was a little girl I have dreamed of going there. When I was in high school I had 23 penpals and my fav was from Walalongong and I sooooooo want to go there someday to see, in person, all of the beautiful post cards and photos she sent for so many years. Your creation is lovely! :)You are so kind to offer one.

Janell said...

Oh, it would be a world wide adventure. Europe, the Caribbean, South America, Africa, etc. I love to travel!

janellhuntsman@yahoo.com

Alison said...

I would love to go to Ireland!!!

TLEB said...

I understand your pain with the ice storm - we are in the midst of it too in TX. I wasn't so productive with my time in the house though - unlike you!! I would go to Hawaii...I love it there! Love your blog!

Holly said...

If money wasn't a object...I would travel to New Zealand! I've always wanted to go there...I heard it is beautiful!

Rebecca said...

I would go to New York City and stay somewhere really fancy and go see some Broadway shows. My husband and I have been there a few times before...before we had kids. Since we've had kids, we haven't taken any vacations. So it would be a fun place to rekindle our love, remember fun times, sit back and relax and of course, watch people! I love to do that! : )

Jawan said...

If I can be honest, I really have a desire to see so many places here in the U.S. Grand Canyon, Jackson Hole, many national parks, historical landmarks on the eastern seaboard, etc.

If I left the country, I'd definitely want to go to Scotland.

Rebecca said...

Australia & New Zealand...without a doubt. Although, I'd wait till fall/winter...it's just too dang hot down there right now!

Tiffany said...

If money were no object I would take my husband and fly off to greece...no kids!!!

michellejohnnie said...

Darling bag! I would travel to Disneyworld in Florida for a vacations with my kids!

Brianne said...

That's a tough question. I'd go anywhere tropical where I could lie on the beach all day while drinking flavored lemonades.

Rebecca said...

Definitely Australia if money were no object. I would absolutely LOVE to see kangaroos and koalas in person! And see Sydney Opera House...oh that would be amazing.

The Cuties' Mommy said...

I love, love, love these mini purse/makeup bags!! SOooooo cute. I was admiring the one you made yesterday and looky today - I could win one...you are awesome! Anyways to answer your question, if money were no object - I'd choose Australia. Absolutely no doubt would love to travel down under. Now - really...I'd go anywhere because I love to travel and don't get to nearly enough!!

pettie1019 said...

London and then Italy. Rick Steve's Europe Through the Back Door ROCKS!!!

Jingle said...

If money were no object I would spend a few months traveling across Europe by train taking in the countryside and eating the best of food and drink along the way!

Wendy said...

I would head to the Solomon Islands by way of Petra. Of course I would go lots of places those are just my top two. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jennie said...

Anywhere but snowy Ohio! I'm so done with Winter.

And such a beautiful bag! Thank you for the chance to maybe give it a good home :)

Kami said...

I would go to Costa Rica! OOOHHH, that is sounding so great right now! Purse is SOOO cute!

Craft Tea Lady said...

I would go back to Aruba. They were the nicest people! I would like to take the little hopper over to Venezuela too! Its just 15 miles and you can see the coastline from Aruba. I NEED WARMTH! :D

Thanks for the chance.

Kinzie Sue said...

Living in TX, close to OK where we too experienced those nasty, cold, wintry ice storms, I was glad you were doing this giveaway- thus, helping me escape! If I could actually escape, I'd go on a Mediterranean cruise so that I could see a bunch of the sites in one trip. How relaxing and adventurous... one day :)

LOVE the bag! LOVE the blog! I'm crossing my fingers that I win!!

Stephanie said...

If money wasn't an issue, I would definitely travel to Australia first. Then, the list gets much too long to post here!

I love the zippered pouch, by the way!

Mindy said...

ANYWHERE, I mean anywhere with the temp 65 degrees and above that has a beach and some ocean water! It's 27 degrees here in Illinois today that's almost a heat wave compared to what we've endured the past month!

Jennie said...

food is a big part of my day dreaming too... love the bag... loved to win it....

Amy said...

If money were no object I would most certainly go everywhere. I have always had traveling the world in my blood, but never had the money. I think I would start with the tropics though. I need lots of sun and warmth to drive this horrid cold out of my bones.

Virginia said...

Ooooh I just LOVE this little pouch. I definitely "need" it. ;)

If I could go anywhere.... I think it would be to Greece. It may sound silly, but ever since I saw "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" I've really wanted to go stay in a little villa there and explore the Greek countryside. It just looks so serene. :)

Tiffany Hewlett said...

I think I would go to Greece, although I am really wanting to go back to Hawaii!

cassie o said...

122 comments already!! sheesha - we really come out of the woodwork for freebies, huh??

i'd go to haiti, without a doubt

Melanie said...

There are a lot of places that I would like to go but I guess the main place would be Hawaii! Love the bag:)

sweetpea said...

I'd tour Europe with my cute husband!!

KMR said...

Italy. With my husband. It would be a surprise. I love surprises. I've never been overeas. I've been to Mexico. Does that count. I didn't think so. I live in South TX :)

Jen said...

I would travel to Australia...my husband and I have both wanted to go there!

Me said...

Anywhere in the Caribbean!!! I love the bright colors of your pouch...sooooo tropical!!!

Ashley's New Adventures said...

Cute Bag!!! Right now we are in the middle of an ice storm so I would love to go anywhere with turquoise waters and white sand!!

bandanachick said...

I would travel back to Hawaii...really any place warm right now, but Hawaii would be my first choice!
I'm a lurker...not sure if I have ever commented here before. I love your blog though, I grew up in OK...I think that is where you live now??

Loving Landon said...

Love the bag! If i could travel anywhere right now....honduras...specifically roatan....love it there!

Kelly said...

This is an easy question - GREECE! Ever since I took a group of students there two summers ago, not a day goes by without thinking about going back. It is beautiful - the sights, the culture, the places where the great scholars of my field walked, but most of all the people were gracious, warm and oh the food! ~Kelly

I would go back to France in the summer time and for more than 2 days...like 2 months! Cute pouch!

Kelly Bumgardner said...

What a fun bag!!! Let's see if money were no object I would probably take the most extravagent Round the World tour possible. There are so many things I would love to see . . . I don't know if I could choose just one.

Karen said...

SUCH a cute bag!!! If money were no object, I'd pack mine up and head on a Mediterranean cruise!

I LOVE the pouch! Adorable! If I could travel anywhere, I would go to Vegas. I have never been there but someday I am going to check it out!

Definately Europe. Italy, Alps, France. Pick me, please!

Sarah said...

I would go pretty much anywhere as I have been pretty much nowhere. There are SO many places I want to go though..Italy, Hawaii, Austria, Ireland to name a few.

I LOVE all your ideas and thank you for them.

If money were no object, I would defiently travel to Australia, that is one place I am bound and determined to visit! Of course any place with sun right now would be better than this snow land.

Susanne said...

I just discovered your blog today and I LOVE it! I think I've spent a good hour going through the archives for craft ideas.

So if I had enough money, I would travel through Europe. Greece and Switzerland are at the top of my list. :-)

If money were no object I would either go back to Venice, Italy or Paris. I have never been to Paris, so I would probably want to go there first. But, I love love love Venice and want to spend a month there when we retire!

Cute, cute bag!!

Colleen said...

If money were no object, I would travel to Australia. How fun that would be.

Thanks for the chance to win this pouch - I love the fabric you used!

Cindie said...

If money were no object I would travel to Portugal. All of my grandparents and my dad were born there and I have never been.

Mrs. S said...

So hard to decide! Probably go all over Europe just because of the deep history. I just LOVE history!

Mrs. Dunbar said...

I would head off to Fiji and lay on the beach all day and at night sleep in the cabanas where you can hear the waves crash.

Katie said...

England, for sure! Been wanting to go for years.

Debbie said...

If money was no issue I would go to Paris France. I would love to go to all the sidewalk markets.

Thanks for the chance to win. I love your bag.

Another lurker here that just couldn't resist answering that question. Or the prize! I just love NYC. I grew up on a farm and now live in a small suburb, so I was a little suprised to find myself so at home and ease there. Other than that, oh I don't know, Europe. Like all of it. Just pack my camera and I would be in heaven...

if money were no object, i'd stay in my own home town, but i'd do things that i can't normally do. i'd be able to take said money others may spend on extravegent trips and give it to my daughter. i'd enroll her in toddler classes and let her have fun that other kids are having but she lacks b/c we can't afford those things.

In my life I have learned that growing up dirt poor and just barely making ends meet today, I have learned to appreciate more what is around me than what is out there that is unreachable.

That being said I desire nothing but to give my daughter things I feel guilty that I can not in this current economy.

I don't wish to win your contest, but I just wanted to share.

A girl can always dream.

Lala said...

Hi Kristen!!! What a NICE giveaway!!! Hmmmmm... WHERE would I go??? If money was NO object???

ICELAND... definitely ICELAND... or somewhere in the SOUTH PACIFIC... a TROPCIAL ISLAND where the sun is WARM and the sand pristine WHITE...

Lala :o)

Heidi Thompson said...

The Greek Isles are calling my name. I am picturing myself in "Mama Mia" right now! :0)

Bonnie said...

I think I would go overseas to Ireland and Scotland... then Italy, France and England if time permitted.

Stephanie said...

Hawaii. I went once and it was WONderful. I would love to go back with my husband and kids. Ohh could we use a vacation!

jellaan said...

There are three places I would really like to travel one day.... Australia, Europe (at least 6 months) and Hawaii. Top choice would probably be Australia because that is one place both my husband and I would like to go. I have always wanted to travel around Europe and wonder why I didn't take the time to do it before having kids??? Guess the big trips will have to wait until the kids are older or moved out of the house!!

I love your blog!!

Heidi Jo the Artist said...

I would travel to GREECE!!!!! Awesome giveaway!

I think New Zealand would be wonderful..some of the Nat'l Geo's I've seen are incredible!! Absolutely love the bag too!!!

fixedonHim said...

What lovely work!!

It would either be Hawaii with my husband and our two girls or in a nice RV traveling all over the US.

Blessings,
Denise

Sara said...

fun pouch! i love the colors!
i would definitely travel to south africa to see a friend of mine who is living there. I've always wanted to go on a safari!!!

Nancy Sabina said...

Brazil! My hubby lived there for 3 years in his youth and we've always dreamed of going. But I'd settle for Hawaii. It's snowy here and these thoughts are making me want to wear flip flops!

Ashlee said...

That is gorgeous!

I wish hubby and I could have a second honeymoon on the beaches of thailand. I would probably find the perfect chair and not move from the sun or the beach for a week..oh sweet bliss

Ali said...

Love it!, I love all the cute stuff you make.

I would travel to New York. I have always wanted to go.

orphanannie said...

first time i have been here and i LOVE it! great stuff! bookmarked it to return to...

if money were no objection i (who live in canada) would fly immediately to my sister (who is now living) in australia!! i miss her so much and cannot afford to get there!

have a great day :)

Leslie & Erik said...

Ohh my this is soo cute!! If money were no object I would go to Europe! Everywhere in Europe! And I would take this cute purse with me!!!

RitaS said...

Creative Blog sent me over and I will be back. Your pouch is SO cute and bright - love bright!
Where to go...my first thought was the dream Alaskan cruise my hubby and I have always had - with hopes of seeing Orca whales in the ocean. THEN - relating to your desire for warmth and my love for pineapple and macadamia nuts...Hawaii would be great -especially NOW! (LOL)
But to give it serious thought and with money as no object, I would definitely want my whole family to take a Homeland Tour and go to South Korea with our adopted daughter to help her get a feel for her heritage and perhaps meet some of the folks that helped bring her to us. She is such a bright flower in our lives - reminds me of your beautiful creation - and my, would SHE love that! I'd have to share - thanks for a chance.

PearFamily said...

Oh what a good question! I would definitely want to travel everywhere, but the absolute first stop on my whirlwind travel extravaganza would be Africa. There is something about the land, animals,and aboriginal peoples that I have been fascinated with since childhood. Since I tend to be super girly and hate bugs this bag would help me to remain girly and carry much needed bug spray and baby wipes so I don't get to grimey!

Thanks for the awesome blog and super crafts! My husband saw your taggy football and has been after me to make one for our unborn son!

Robin @ My Blessed Nest said...

My younger daughter would LOVE this bag!! If money (and time) were no object, I would spend a month or two in Ireland tracing my family roots!! I have a lot of information about my family's beginnings there and would love to experience it for myself. Although, money is an object, I plan to go one day!

My Big Mouth said...

Hello, I'm dropping by from Todays Creative Blog.
Where would I go?
Psh,that a no brainer for me....England!!
I have loved England since I was 14.Love, like obsession.I use to,as a teen,watch only British programs,I collected anything made in England or had the Union Jack on it.I went overboard with it.
I still love the place,but most of my 'British' things are packed nicely in a box in my closet now.

Kindy Lynn said...

If money were no object I would go to the one place I have ALWAYS wanted to go since I was little....Australia! I love the aussie accents, the gorgous men that seem to come from there, and the Landscape. Its just an all around beautiful country. Now that Im thinking about it, it makes me feel much WARMER!! Hope it warms you up a little to!

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I would love to travel across the US to see all the tourist sites (and the little towns too). The first place I would go though is to Connecticut to see the Grandkids :)

mrstolli said...

If money were no object I would love to travel up to the New England states in the fall to actually see what fall looks like. :)

Becky said...

I would travel to Ireland! So boring I know but I love everything about that green country.

Girl Fisher said...

I would choose Australia/New Zealand because that's my husband's dream vacation. We'd see the whole country and most importantly, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

Gordostyle said...

Oh for cute! Love the bag.

And... right now I'm in the mood to go to two different places. NYC and Sanibal Island. I've seen people on different blogs mention those places and it got me in the mood!

Smiles,
Jen

SCREAMING FOR CHOCOLATE said...

I would go to Greece or Italy. Greece has beautiful waters and warm temps. Italy has beatiful landscapes and wine.. I would take a wine tasting tour and probably stay soused the whole time. LOL... just kidding.

Coco
PS.. very cute zippered bag.

Heather said...

I would go to Belguim and the Netherlands. And drink beer, eat herrings and chocolate (not at the same time...euw) and have tons of fun. In luxury.

SJH said...

If money and time were no object, I would travel to a sandy beach in every country that had one...
Delurking and hoping to win!

mama bear said...

Oh, how fun! I would definitely visit Australia for a few months, and New Zealand. Spain to visit the in-laws is a must, then I would probably go visit my friend Emily who is living in Japan and finish it off with a trip to Disneyworld for the kiddos. Wouldn't life be grand if money were never an object!

Dena said...

HAWAII!! no question.... it's 8 degrees today here!

ps. the bag is adorable!

Sharon said...

It's not super exciting but I would travel to Louisiana to help people continue to rebuild their homes and lives since Hurricane Katrina hit.

Cara said...

Oh so many places come to mind. I would love to go to Italy for so many reasons. But I think I would pretty much like anywhere warm that has a beach. The bag is so cute!

LeAnne said...

I would travel to an island with no traffic, no children and very little adults. Only me, my husband and staff to wait on us. If only!!!

Libby@Thrifty Victorian Home said...

What a gorgeous bag! I would travel to...hmm..the place I grew up. I am really a home body, and I miss my parents farm a lot. I still go there a few times a year, but there is nothing like the feeling of home!

Blessings!

stephanie said...

If money was no object then I would definitely head up to Alaska or over to Australia. Both sound fun. Cute bag!!

kelly l said...

I just want to go to Hawaii or somewhere tropical like the Bahamas or Costa Rica since it's so cold here in Utah. Love the little purse.

Ashley said...

First I would travel to Ireland and Egypt for fun and then Greek Isles to work on my tan!

mrszaz said...

I would travel back to Paris. My hubby and I went there on our honeymoon. We were suppose to have 3 days there but only ended up with 1 1/2 days due to a storm. We saw a lot but not nearly enough. I need a chocolate/banana crepe from the cart outside Notre Dame NOW!!

Terri said...

Costa Rica, I think - and then Greece! :) The bag is too cute - I am making one this weekend! If I don't mess it up, that is!

Jessica said...

I'd travel to some really cool and clean beach in another country...don't know where, just know it would rock. Maybe Fiji or Australia? I don't know.

msbits said...

Oh wow. My husband and would love to go to Greece. We would love to also go on one of those tours of Israel. See the places of Jesus' ministry and the travels of Paul. Put some Egypt and Moses in their for good measure. :)

Brenda Jean said...

No doubt-- I'd go to Ireland:) I hope to go one day! Thanks for the giveaway. The bag is lovely and oh so cheerful!

Talela said...

If I could go anywhere, it would have to be Kuala Lumpur, but I wouldn't enjoy the long, long flight - LOL! Love your blog.

Sawyers Family said...

I would travel to Austrailia...but if world violence was not an issue either, I would travel to the Holy Land. I'm reading a book from there right now, and oh how I would love to go. But money and violence are keeping me away...but I can dream, right?

Jenni said...

WOW...SO CUTE!!! I would go anywhere warm...I REPEAT ANYWHERE about 75 degrees!

Jen r. said...

Bermuda.. anywhere quiet and WARM! :)

Yelowflower said...

I would love to go to Ireland. I have family over there I have never met, and probably won't now that all my elders are dead, but it would be fun to try to find them anyways.

2cleverblog.com said...

I would travel to Helper Utah. To see my grandmothers house. She passed away years ago but when I was last there I wish I would have taken a photo of the mail slot on the front door, the pink tile in her bathroom, the large mud ball that my dad had made that is still sitting next to the door and also the flowers out back that she used to pick the leaves from to put in salad at her house. That is where I would go.

mandbrid said...

Considering the weather here...I'd have to say Hawaii. Ahhhh....

Sara said...

A warm, well-lit place with lights twinkling and warmth resonating from every inch of the space.
(we're in the middle of an ice storm too)
