Tell me if you C / K - Giveaway


This week's giveaway is sponsored by Julie of Coco and Cocoa. When I need to learn more about a shop owner, the first place I usually go is to their profile. The second place, is their blog. Julie's blog is a wonderful example of the passion she feels about handmade products and the pride she takes in her work.  Gander at her shop and you'll see what I mean.



How to enter: Simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us which you prefer and why: Crochet or Knit?  It is the ultimate fiber battle, and everyone seems to have an opinion.  Share yours!  TWO BONUS ENTRIES will go to the first person who correctly identifies the obscure reference in the Giveaway Title.  I have upped the ante since no one has guessed yet.  Apparently I am more obscure than I thought!  But, I'm only giving these 2 bonus entries away to ONE person because, don't lie, you would totally Ctrl + C that.  Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Tuesday, September 06, 2011.  Winners will be announced Wednesday, September 07, 2011.


And our winner is.... Amber (hurdler4eva)!  You have won this Summer Time Set, including the Summer Time Green Tie and the Summer Time Green Headband, a $35 value. The tie is knitted by hand and the headband is crocheted, all by Julie.  The flower on the headband is detachable and so the headband can be worn with or without, or the flower can be pinned separately. The headband ties in the back so it is one size fits all.


Didn't win?  Check out Julie's website  to pick out a perfect gift, from applique to crochet and knit!  Don't see the color you're looking for?  Drop Julie an message on Etsy, she is happy to do custom orders!


Wondering about the bonus entry?  Well, it was unclaimed for this contest!  "If you see my friend, doesn't matter where or where..." - Tell me if you See Kay by The Script.

Here goes nothing...

Well folks, I know I've been gone a while and I appreciate your patience as I try to do... whatever I'm trying to do.  Now seems as good a time as any to try and slowly start getting back into the swing of things.  Bear with me, as I will be slow but I am trying.
