Sasaki Bags May Give-away


Tomorrow is May 1st. That may mean many things to many people. It is May Day. As a kid I recall something about may baskets and flowers. In Hawaii, May Day is Lei Day. Everyone wears a lei and there are extraordinary leis entered into contests. The school children hold Lei Day celebrations with a Royal Court, hula dancing and all sorts of festivities.
But for me, May 1st is the beginning of my birthday month! My bday is the last day of May. I thoroughly enjoy having birthdays! It means I am still alive! For me, my birthday is like New Years Day for other people. I love to take the day and reflect on the past year and think about ways I can improve as a person in the coming year. One year, my sister bought me 31 presents and I got to open one every day of the month. It was so much fun!

So this year, I want to make some other lucky girls' day by giving away a Sasaki Bag on my birthday. I have not made the bag that will be given away. I am not sure which one it will be yet. I am hoping you all inspire me to create something that all the girls will envy. To qualify here is what you can do:

1. Each time you comment on my Sasaki Bags Facebook or Twitter pages I will write your name on a slip of paper and put it in a bag.


2. If you comment on my blog, you will also be entered into the drawing.

3. If you go to my Discussions page on Sasaki Bags Facebook and leave a comment or start a new discussion, you will be entered again and again!
Then at the end of the month...did I mention that is my BIRTHDAY?, I will draw a slip of paper out of the bag and announce the lucky girl!

I am doing it in this fashion so that a girl who REALLY wants a Sasaki Bag can increase her chances of getting one by leaving comments. In the past, I randomly chose a name from my list of fans. What I really hope to accomplish is to get to know my customers and friends a little better. Tell me what you like, what you don't like. Give me your ideas! Lets just have fun connecting this month!

Sounds like a plan, and it is most generous of you to do a bag giveaway. Unfortunately, I have nothing in particular to say just now, but I have the rest of the month to get inspired :-)

Let's make it a Hula Daddy bag with any of the beautiful linings you have. I like the Kahuna one the best.

Let's make it a Hula Daddy bag. Any of your beautiful linings would work wonderfully. I like the Kahuna bag the best.

Karen, I think I will be a Hula Daddy coffee bag for my give-away because all 3 votes were for Hula Daddy! The Big Kahuna would definately be a NICE give-away! Hmmmm....

Neat bags Barb, Looks like the creative gene runs in your family.

Hi Peggy!
Thanks for dropping by!
It took me years to realize that just because I can't draw and thus have never considered myself "artistic", it doesn't mean that I can't be "creative"! My sis, my brother, my kids can all draw amazing things, and I finally found MY niche!

Mom said...

You are very creative, you never cease to amaze me and of course I have known you all of your life! Ha! My vote would be for the Hula Daddy bags as well.

Hi Barb -- I vote for the Hula Daddy bag and I also love the watermelon bag and also your tiny little silk babies. I remember a couple of years ago that Kathy Lynn sent me the link for your bags. We are both so proud of you! Love, Coulette
