You Can Make This Giveaway

Like I said before, coming up with ideas for Tristan’s birthday was difficult. I was approached a couple weeks beforehand about You Can Make This and a light bulb went off!

I could make something crafty for her. She’s four so we still have awhile before the expensive gifts come into play.

So let me tell you about You Can Make This and what I get to offer my lovely readers as a giveaway! was created by a stay-at-home mom who wanted to provide a place where women could learn how to make items for their homes and families. The site is unique because the eBooks and patterns are written by “everyday” women. The step-by-step format of the eBooks enables even the most craft-challenged person to experience the satisfaction of creating something beautiful. provides easy to follow how-to eBooks on a variety of projects. The eBooks feature detailed ste-by-step instrctions and photos that walk you through the creative process. Popular categories include clothing creation, quilting, crochet, jewelry, home decor, and more.

You Can Make Thisoffers so many different creative outlets to feed your soul. Even for the kids.

I get to offer you lovely people an e-book to make something so great. Something I used to make as a teenager for each of my friends during the holidays etc. An step by step e-book on how to make personalized pillows like the one pictured below:

A perfect idea. A perfect gift for a four year old. The other kids won’t steal her pillow because it has her own name on it! I can make it and it’s all for her!

So here’s how to win and all the fun stuff:
