and the winners are . . .

I know you may not read this because you are going to skip down to see if your name is listed as one of the winners . . . but humor me . . . or at least scroll back up after you've scrolled down to read this part . . . please!

I want you to read this because it's my chance to gush all over you . . . yep, you and you and you and you and you over there . . . yes, you too. 

I want to thank you for hanging in here with me for a year of crafting.  And I want to thank you in advance for hanging in here with me for the next month or two during the packing, moving, unpacking and reorganizing . . . a period during which there will be very little crafting.

A number of you have asked if I'm doing another year of gift-making.  The answer is "yes" and "no".  Yes, because I am going to be making gifts again this year.  And no, because it will not be a full 12 months of gift-making . . . more like 10 by the time I get situated in my new home and back at it again.   

So I would love it if you would be willing to hang in there with my move-related rants for the next little while until the gift-making consumes me once again.

Until the end of February, I would LOVE to feature a number of your guest posts.  I'm hoping to have a schedule of personal posts and guest posts lined up that would look something like this throughout the month of February:

Movin' It Monday
A personal story, tip or rant about your own move (across town or across the world)

Tuesday's True Confession
Confession-related posts

Wednesday (no catchy name)
A tutorial

If Only I Could Be Crafting Thursday
Showing off something I would like to be working on.  This will be my main personal posting day.

Feed Me Friday
A recipe

So if you have a previous post that would fit into one of those themes or something that you would like to write up to fit into one of those themes, let me know. 

And now . . . on with the show!

Winner #2:
Melanna said...
I follow you. On GFC, but originally on my google reader. And I like that you count following on a reader. Some blogs don't and that bugs me.
**This winner will get the remaining prize.

So if you are one of the winners, it will speed up the process if you would send me a quick e-mail with your mailing address (if you won a prize that needs to be sent to your home).  If you don't contact me, it will be a day or so before I contact you.

And check back tomorrow for the winner of giveaway #5 and a prize for all of you who read from Ellen of Ellzabelle.

Craft on!

I don't need to be a guest blogger, but my moving tip is to use color coded stickers (like the 1 inch color dots) to color code rooms. So each kitchen box is blue, each 2 yo's room is orange...and so on.

Tiffany said...

I have previously, on my blog with my sister ( done a couple recipes. Otherwise, I could whip up new ones and feature those :D


Erika Mulvenna said...
