OCAC Bag raffle, goodies and other fun things…

November 30, 2009

First of all a huge thank you, thank you, thank you to everybody who purchased one of my OCAC bags this weekend. It was really exciting for me to see people walk away with something I made with my own two hands. Somehow similar to the experience when i see a jacket i designed on the mountain yet a bit sweeter. If that is even possible.
Now there are only 3 bags left! And because tomorrow is already December, Christmas is fast approaching, and ‘Nikolaustag’ is on the 6th of December, i decided to raffle away one of my bags. I’ll hold the raffle on December 6th. You can enter by simply leaving a comment on my wordpress blog – if you see this in the FB note, just click on a pic and it’ll lead you to my blog. I will randomly pick a name out of a hat coming Sunday afternoon.

But that’s not all. Verypurpleperson is also raffling away some goodies over at purplestuff. Hop on over and check it out!

Thank you Janet for this amazing shot!

And if you are into Yoga and live here in Portland, OR, check out the Giving Tree at The Bhakti shop. (BTW they became my favorite yoga studio in town!) They are holding an incredible fundraiser with E X I T I N G prices, including a weekend getaway, massage, acupuncture and other vouchers, and one of my seek one-piece suits! If you are in the area, get yourself or someone you love a ticket and see what happens. Here a link to The Bhaktishop Facebook fanpage.

Barre3 opened their SE studio in November and they are offering a special deal on their 3-month unlimited class series. I love this workout – if you are not a gym hero or yogi, or just want something that will compliment all your activities – this is the place for you!

And something else that i am excited about is the advents calendar i am currently creating for Leona. I don’t want to stuff her with chocolate and sweets – so i am creating felt food for her. Of course i had this idea at the last minute (as usual) so it’s little presents day by day instead of a full fledged calendar. I’ll post pics of her goodies on a daily basis – or at least that’s what i am planning. Next week i will be back in possession of my sewing room and need to ramp up again – my sewing japanese challenge needs some more fuel before the flame extincts…

Whow, this was a long one. Good night for today, everybody…

    Oh, that would be a perfect baby shower present! 😀 It’s hip and modern and has a crane to symbolize the new baby coming. *Hopes she gets picked out of the raffle*

    • Hi Elise, sorry i closed the raffle yesterday at noon. But it surely is right – the crane would have been so fitting! 🙂
