it’s my party!


choco chip scones

Strawberry Shortcake

Rabbit 3


3 years blogging and 4 years at the webshop. Enjoy the snacks and prizes!

1st (for the 3yr blogoversary) I’m iniating a 3 person PIF, if you would like to sign up leave a comment with ‘PIF’ in it. Most everyone knows how PIFs work. I send an item I’ve made to 3 people within the next 6 months, the three who are drawn for the PIF in turn offer to do the same at threir blog and send out a handmade item to 3 people who will offer the same at their blog….and so on. I will draw the the names from all the PIF comments.

2nd (for my 4yr webshop anniversary), I’m offeirng 4 prizes, 1. a $25 gift card for the webshop, 2. an assortment of projects like those shown at my blog recently all kitted up, 3. a selection of hand-dyed fibers and cross stitch fabric, 4. a pillow from my collection of past projects. To enter leave the word ‘prizes’ in any comment you may leave here.

So that I don’t have to keep rounding up entries, you must leave your comment at THIS post to be in the drawings, I’m not trying to be a stinker but I’m always afraid I’ll miss someone’s entry that’s been left in an obscure place here or at flickr, so if you want your name in the drawing leave a comment for the ‘it’s my party’ blog post please!

All entries close with the next Rocky Mountain Wednesdays post when winners/PIFers will be announced. Thanks for celebrating with me.

Yzma & Ophelia are bored by the whole thing.


PS – see the webshop specials look for the purple text!!
