it's a giveaway!

Today is my 250th post on my blog! Wow! I can't believe it! I've been doing this blog now for 2 1/2 years. Here's my first post if you want to see how it all began.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway in honor of this anniversary of sorts. I couldn't decide what to give away so I picked three things I've made. All you have to do to enter is comment on this post and tell me which of the three items you'd like to win. Also, tell me what you are busy making with your "eager hands" these days! I'd love to see what everyone else is making! (and anything counts - even pb&j sandwiches for your kiddos! :) )

I'll be closing the comments on Thursday at 6pm so enter before then, and just enter once, too. Thanks! I'm excited! I love to give gifts! One of my little munchkins will draw one of your names out of a hat and I'll announce the winner Thursday night!

Here's the goodies up for grabs:

A pretty tote bag (it's reversible, too!)

a long skinny crocheted wool scarf (or belt!) dyed freshwater pearl and wood earrings
Good luck everybody!

  2. Nice blog! Your giveaway worked -- am certainly adding you to my rss reader now. I like those earrings -- they're nifty. And I'm making an overdue Christmas present for an old roommate, a leather-bound notebook, as well as a pair of socks for my mother and a massive cross-stitch for my in-laws.

  3. I don't know why, but I kept reading "Dyed freshwater pearls" as "Fresh dishwater pearls" the first like, 4 times I read the sentence. Anyway, they're lovely - and my choice, if I am chosen!

    Lora,
    My choice would be the tote bag...all my favorite colors. I'm still knitting a baby blanket. Hopefully, I'll be done before the baby comes!

    Lora......great prizes ! ! My choice would be the cute tote bag...but I like it hanging there on the chair with the background of your wallpaper...matches perfectly. I am "making" more time for God in my life daily... reading the Bible through for the fourth time..what a blessing...He becomes nearer and dearer each year. Love, Diane

  25. I came over from Dawn's at 4:53. Proverbs 31:13 is one of my favorite verses. Congratulations on so many lovely blog posts. My blog, Peranickety, is my latest creative project. Oh, and if I'm lucky enough to win, I'd prefer the totebag.
