Hello everyone! Guess what? This year il bloggo turns four! I can't believe I have been doing this for that long! It seems like just yesterday I was fawning over Hillary Lang's awesome craft blog and my friends suggested I start one. My first post was on the 31st of July, so technically that is my blogiversary. But since I've always been so bad about remembering them, and thusly I have failed to celebrate a single one to date, I am making this a month-long celebration! So here's the plan:
I am going to have a big old give away this month!
There will be 3 prizes, each bigger than the last, and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment anywhere on this site during the month of July. Every comment will get you one piece of paper with your name on it in the hat, so the more you comment, the better chance you have to win! I will select three winners at random from everyone on July 31st at 9 p.m. and post the winners. Bet you are wondering what the prizes are, yes?
Well, I am going to be making them all this month and doing posts about them. In the end I hope to have 3 little gift baskets of handmade goodies and crafty treasures waiting for everyone. But I am starting with some gift certificates as the first item. First prize gets a $20.00 gift certificate to my etsy shop, second prize gets $15.00, and third prize gets $10.00. And I am sure that every basket will contain an eco-friendly plush mushroom which I will be sewing shortly. I will make a large for the first prize basket, a medium for second, and a small for third. I will post pics of them as soon as they are ready! And of course the containers themselves will be handmade, though I'm not sure if I want to make them purses or boxes or crocheted baskets, I guess I'll just have to see where my mood takes me! I have so many little things I would like to make for these packages, and each one will be totally unique. I can't wait to see who gets to take them home!
I am going to try hard to get some new tutorials and patterns posted this month as part of the celebration as well. I have some amigurumi and sewing patterns on the way. So good luck to everyone and thanks so much for sticking with me all these years!
