Go to her site and read all about it.  It's an ingenious idea really, and makes the challenge a real competition amongst us crafters, good luck to all who enter.  I hope to see you at the finish line!!!

Down to the wire....and a surprise to boot!!!!

Giveaway will end at 1:00 p.m. (est) Sunday January 30, 2011. The lucky winners name will be drawn and bunny will travel to a new home on Monday the 31st. (weather permitting)

Surprise!!!!  A special drawing to be held Tuesday February 1, 2011 @ 1:00 p.m. (est). -  Where I have had such an outstanding response and have received such nice comments from you all, I have decided to add a special drawing for a surprise giveaway.  Yes, that's right, another chance to win.  If any of you would like additional chances to win, now is the time to ask your friends to become followers and tell them to say you sent them.

If you are one of the 55 current followers on my list, you will automatically be entered into the surprise drawing with 1 chance each.  If I should reach 100 or more followers by the drawing deadline, I will give each follower (including new) 1 additional chance.

All new followers (after this post) will receive 1 chance each if they leave a comment, and if in that comment they mention who sent them, the sender will receive an additional chance in the basket as well.

Once the drawing is complete I will post the winners names.  It will be up to the Winner to post the item that they receive.  After all it is a surprise. Good Luck to all!!!!

You will get 2 chances and likewise, if they find a new follower they will get 2 chances as well, otherwise they will get one chance. The giveaway will end January 30th and the winners name will be posted on January 31st. Once posted, the winner need only send me your mailing address and bunny will travel to it's new home. HOP'fully yours.
***Note - if you are already a follower, you get 1 chance to start - you need only find a friend to follow and you'll get your 2nd chance.***

Bunny is made of muslin grunged and painted brown. He has a pack on his back filled with sticks, flowers and drieds. His homespun bow is tied with a Happy Easter tag attached. He's real cute, don't wait.

Meet my new friend Elvin. I made him using a pattern from The Vintage Polka Dot. I couldn't resist when I saw her designs. She has a way of making her little people come to life when she paints the eyes on. I also purchased her tutorial for painting eyes. It's a must, and I believe great help if you are going to make her designs.

Star bright, star light...

Star bright, star light, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight.
Let's all say a prayer for our service men serving overseas. May they be safe and warm and in god's loving arms.
I made this star to remember the men and women who are fighting for us. Long may she wave!!!
