Giveaway :: Win a custom clutch and ruffle pouch from Amanda's Beans!

*Giveaway closed! Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to Danielle!*

All right, friends, this is a good one. Not only do I really love this shop, but Amanda herself has swiftly become one of my absolute favorite internet folks who leaves me simultaneously loving the blog world (how else would I have "met" her?) and cursing it (dude, she lives 4 states away . . . that's a lot of states).
Amanda blogs about her fantastic sewing projects over here at Simply Homemade, but let's chat about her beautiful etsy shop, Amanda's Beans. She kindly sent me a little package of her products so I could pass on the lovin' to you nice people, and look what I got in the mail!

There lie what are quite possibly the two cutest things I own right now . . . an adorable yellow clutch (perfect for a little date night) and beautiful zipper pouch (how thoughtful to include a pouch made using crochet notions! Mmmm, how I do love pretty crochet!). 

My favorite part about these beautiful items is that they're lovely on the outside, as you can plainly see, but the inside?
The linings are fantastic! I love the dainty floral print lining the clutch, and the little sectioned pocket is perfect for storing a credit card and your lip gloss. (And how cute is the little tag?!)
And you never would have guessed that this bold and funky print was hiding inside of that sweet ladylike pouch, would you? It's like a fun little surprise waiting for me every time I open it up.

And as a seamstress who will begrudgingly admit to cutting corner and taking shortcuts wherever I can find them (terrible, I know, but I only do it when I'm keeping them for myself!), I was delighted to find that these items are so well-made.
I have no doubt that these little numbers will be lasting a long, long time--they're sewn so beautifully. I think Amanda and I need to make a 4-state road trip and have a sewing date so she can teach me to stop being a sewing slacker.

And amidst all this girliness, she even included a little somethin' for Forrest!
You would not believe all the compliments he got on his adorable tie when he wore it to church yesterday.

So . . . ya jealous? Do you want to own something pretty from Amanda's Beans? And did you just scroll straight down to this part to see how to win? Shame on you. Go back and read every word. Twice. 
(Some of the other goodies you'll find at Amanda's Beans)
Amanda's going to give one of you lucky ladies (or guys? I guess it's a possibility . . . )a custom clutch and matching smashed ruffle pouch! And if you just can't wait, use coupon code ZEROSHIPPING for (can you guess?) free shipping on your order from her shop!

Here's how to enter:
*Each of the following is one entry--please leave a separate comment for each entry method that you complete, and make sure that I have a way to contact you (either by having your email enabled in your Google profile, or leaving your email address in the comment).*
1st entry: What's your favorite candy bar/treat? We've got to know . . . do Red Vines get you drooling? (Yep.) Do Rolos set your heart aflutter? (Of course.) Are Lil' Debbie's culinary creations your guilty pleasure? (How did I know?)
2nd entry: Add Amanda's Beans to your favorite shops on etsy! (Or, if you're not an etsy member, become a follower of Simply Homemade, Amanda's blog!)

That's it! We're keepin' it simple 'round these parts. So hop to it! Go check out Amanda's Beans, dream of going on a hot date with your custom clutch in hand, or, more realistically (for me, at least), start trying to rid your mind of the ever-present lure of tempting treats, now that we've got you thinking about it. Sorry. 

(Random.org will pick a winner for me this Friday!)
