Time's up! This give-away is closed! Winner will be announced Wednesday, September 17th. Thank you to all who entered!
Come on in and help Hooked On Needles (that's Me!) celebrate its 100th post! Click on the bar below to see what you might get for celebrating with me.
One hundred and one days ago, I never would have believed that today I would be celebrating my 100th post on this website, but here we are. Starting this site was such a big step for me, and I was so apprehensive about it that I put it off for quite some time. When I finally took the plunge, I never imagined that I could enjoy something so much. Silly isn't it? I'm doing what I love doing, and sharing it with other people. What's not to love about that?
The other day I decided that I would have to make something to give away to one of my readers in celebration of this milestone but I wasn't quite sure what it should be. My sister suggested one of my Fancy Beaded Scissor Fobs that I shared with you here a while back. I thought that was a great idea, so here's what I made:
The Red one you have already seen in my original post on how I made it, but I also made a Purple one with a pretty cloisonné bead in the middle and two cute little silver flower beads towards each end. If you click on the pictures you can see them bigger. Besides that, I made a fancy Blue one which will be another one of my Angel Swap gifts, but I thought I'd show it to you anyway. Such a tease! Each of these scissor fobs has a Fleur de lis charm on the end, each in a little bit different style but all with an antiqued silver finish.
These scissor fobs can be attached directly to your scissor handle with the lobster claw clasp if your handles are the small delicate type. But if you have scissors with thicker handles, you can string the fob through the handle and attach the clasp to the ring of the charm as shown below. Either way, they dress up a plain pair of scissors very nicely!
So here are the two you will have to choose from if you are the first winner of this give away: the Purple and the Red. The second winner gets the other one. How's that for a plan?
Of course, there is something you have to do if you want to be in the running for these. You will need to comment on this post directly from the website, not as a reply to the email. So you need to click on the title of this article, then scroll down to the bottom of the article and click where it says Post a Comment. You may comment anonymously if you like, but you will need to leave a first name or your initials or something so that I can identify you if you are the winner. Readers from outside the US are welcome to join in. I am happy to ship internationally using the least expensive method.
In your comment, I would like you to tell me what post on this site has been your favorite and why. If you haven't had a chance to cruise around the different categories of needlework yet, go to the main page by clicking on the Hooked On Needles header and then check out the sidebar to see all the different categories. Browse around and pick out your favorite project or post. Any other information you would like to share would be welcome too, including constructive criticism and suggestions for new topics.
I will close this give away on Wednesday, September 17th at 7:00 am Eastern time. That's usually when my posts are published each day. Then I will pick two winners at random from all eligible entries. The first winner will get to pick first and the second will get the other one. I will post the winners on the 17th and you will have until the 19th to contact me with your snail mail information. If I do not hear from you by then, I will choose another winner.
I think that about covers it, don't you? If I've left anything out, please let me know! Good luck!
Now on to the next 100!
