Custom Essential Oil Bag Giveaway


When I think of my mom, so many pictures and memories that come to mind involve her sitting at her sewing machine.  From the time I was a little girl, I remember her getting out her sewing machine and setting her project out on the dining room table.  I can still hear the whirring of the sewing machine going as fast as possible.  She made me Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and clothes.  When I got married, she sewed curtains and pillows for our new first home.  Now that I have little girls, she sews sweet little dresses for them (and their dolls), but best of all, she spends time with them teaching them how to sew.  I'm likely not exaggerating when I say that my seven year old is better with a needle than I (smile).  

This year when my mom saw my essential oils were overflowing on my counter, she surprised me one day with a perfect bag she made to hold all of them.  Of course, she knows me so well, and the bag was made with the most perfectly beautiful fabric.  


Since then, her bags have become quite popular and I'm so excited to give away one of these beautiful bags here!  


The Essential Oil bag is padded and lined, and made with high quality fabric that washes and wears well.  There are little padded pockets that hold the oil bottles, ten attached to the inside of the bag, and then four removable inserts with three pockets each.  Two of the inserts fit in the bottom of the bag and the other two stack on top.  Even with all the pockets full, the bag still zips closed nicely.



These bags work great for traveling, as the padded pockets keep the oils safe, but I also keep my oils organized in this bag all the time.  They are easy for me to find and safely tucked away in the same place. 

 

Another fun little bag that my mom makes is something she refers to as a Lalaloopsy bag!  She made these sweet little bags for my girls for their little Lalaloopsy dolls (which they play with every day).  These would make a great gift for a child!  (You could fill it with any little toys for boys or girls.)  I absolutely love these bags, as they keep little toys safely tucked away at home and are also great for traveling. 


 For this giveaway, should you win, you can select your choice of either an Essential Oil bag or a Lalaloopsy bag.  The bag will be made custom with your color combination choice! 

(The essential oil bag measures 10" wide, 7" tall, and 4" deep.  The Lalaloopsy bag measures 5" wide, 6" tall,  and 2" deep.)


 If you are interested in placing an order for either bag, you can find all details here


GIVEAWAY DETAILS

To be entered, simply leave a comment!  Please make sure I have a way to contact you via email should you win! I will select a random winner one week from today, next Tuesday, December 8.  You will receive your bag before Christmas, in the event this would be a gift.  And remember, you can select your color combination and your choice of either the Essential Oil bag or Lalaloopsy bag!  I know you will absolutely LOVE these bags just as much as I do.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Giveaway is now closed.  The randomly selected winner was Lyn Moon.  Thank you for entering!

  5. Oh, this is awesome! My mother in law just had surgery to remove breast cancer today. We were at her house on Sunday and she had several oils lined up on the counter to keep her calm the night before. She's really loved the oils and plans to keep using them. She'd love this organization for them!

  7. You and your mother live sweet and simple lives, providing inspiration to so many people. Both of you have taken the time to respond to my private emails with helpful advice. My "nursing student" daughter and I have been experimenting with essential oils for a healthier lifestyle. I remember falling in love with these cute bags when your mom posted them on her blog. I would love to win one to organize my new Young Living essential oil collection. Enjoy the holiday season and keep blogging with new recipes. Amy in NC (amyhigg@carolina.rr.com)

  11. Hi beautiful. I love my bag. It is beautiful. Right now I don't have but a few oils for it but by the end of the month I should have more. I am writing about the Lalaloopsy dolls. Where did you get them and are they the mini dolls?

    1. Hi Beverly! Yes, they are the mini dolls and you should be able to find them wherever toys are sold. Some of ours also came from Amazon! The girls have only the mini dolls... They have a huge basket of blocks and they build the dolls houses and bunk beds every day. They are so cute!
