Give away day!

Hello everybody,

My name is Tina, my family and I moved to the bay area this year.
We are six altogether, my kids, two girls two boys, are 12, 10, 4 and 1 year old.


(Please note: these are my two younger ones and me. The guy on the right side is not  my husband. That's just a freak I met at the mall who absolutely wanted to have a picture taken of us and him. Really don't now why. There were plenty of free couches).

That is the reason why I started this blog: everybody arounds me speaks english.

I tried to write my main blog,  nähtina, bilingual, but I realized, I can't. My brain doesn't work like a translator. So I now have my nähtina blog in german and this one in english
So please excuse the emptiness here, perhaps you like to check out some photos on nähtina?

For the giveaway day, which I love, as I am a giveaway-junkie, I like to tell you the story of my blogname:

My name is Tina. And it is really just Tina, not Christina, not Martina, not Bettina, just Tina.
In Germany, when I was young younger, that was pretty unusual. So when I said my name, everybody always asked me either: nur Tina ???? (just Tina????) or: so, that's your Nickname, and your real name is Martina (Christina, Bettina)? And I answered: No, it is nur Tina ---> nurtina (Just Tina) !

So I used this name in the web first, nurtina. When I started sewing (in german: nähen), and launched my blog, by the time, nurtina developed into nähtina, which is pretty close. And in english, näh-tina means sew-tina. That's it!




So, what will I give you for give-away-day?

You will get one personalized elephantastic elephant.






You can choose the style (for a boy, for a girl, for a baby, for a teenager, for yourself, classic, modern....), give me the name to embroider on, and then you will need to trust me for the rest *g*!
For the case you are allergic to elephants or had an traumatic experience in your youth or your husband threatens you to leave you for good if an elephant will join your collection of deers, you can choose to have a personalized rectangular cushion instead *g*






So, what do you have to do?

nothing special. Just leave me a comment. That's all!

A nice give away day, a great holiday time,
Tina

When I wrote this, there wasnt a give away day on sew, mama, sew yet. But this link will bring you back to the blog: sew mama sew I will edit this later to bring you back to the give away day posting.

  6. Oh my gosh. My little guy (1-1/2 years old) would LOVE the elephant. It's one of those animals he thinks is so cool, and tries to say (and doesn't do such a bad job. Much better than rhinoceros!)

She is a bit of an animal nut, I can see a lot of pets in my future I think. But for now an Elephant pillow that cute might buy me some time on the pet front.

  66. Well, Nahtina/Nurtina, I like the JUST and the SEW before your name. I hope you enjoy the bay area. I spent some time there from 2007-2009. Mostly at the hospital with my son but I was able to get out and walk and bus around San Fran. I love the elephant but also the pillows. I have a Grandson and another on the way so would be awesome to recieve your offerings. thank you.
