Giveaway

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I've been watching in amazement for a few days as the links over here keep growing and growing with people who are hosting giveaways. The last time around I didn't participate, but now that things are slightly more settled in my somewhat crazy but wonderful job I thought I'd make an offering. The softies I make don't quite compare to amazing things you might see here or here, but I still think they are pretty cute.

All those who leave comments will be entered to win the homemade softie of their choice, either an owl:
(You can pick the colors you'd like, from a list of colors I have.)

Or a penguin:
Who will come with sunglasses, goggles, and a winter hat. (Because every good penguin should be prepared.) You can also pick (from a limited list) colors for the penguin's hat and glasses.

I'll hold the drawing on Monday, since I'll be on call on Sunday, and the post the winner on Tuesday.

Feel free to leave in your comment any favorite crafty blogs - I'm always looking for new ones to read!

I've been loving the owls lately, so I'd love to sign up to win the owl. These are seriously cute. What a fun giveaway!

Michelle O. said...

The penguin is so cute! My youngest would adore it. She's got a bronchial tube infection right now, and a new softie would really cheer her up. Knowing her (and the way she just adds a "y" to the type of animal it is (lamby, beary, etc) this one would end up being "Penguiny". Please enter me, I'd love to win! Thank you.
