This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered! The winner, cdziuba of Ceeceeblogger, was announced HERE. Congratulations!
The Whirl Into Winter Giveaway has finally arrived! Happy 2009 to all of you and thank you for visiting Hooked On Needles, even if it is just to check out my giveaway prize. Of course I can't let you go quite so quickly now that you are here, so I'm going to ask you to do a little simple sleuthing in order to get your name in my drawing.
But first, would you like to know what you are playing for? Take a look...
In the Winter spirit of this giveaway, I have made a very generously sized (40 by 50 inches not including the fringe), double thickness, fleece blanket using the coziest, thickest fleece I could find in a very winter-looking print -- light blue background with little yellow stars and a solid yellow backing. Just imagine an evening in front of the fireplace, curled up underneath this blanket, with a cup of something hot and a really good book...or craft magazine! COZY!
Of course, along with the blanket will be a few other Winter-themed items for the winner. A box of assorted Winter cards and envelopes, a clear snowflake ornament that would look nice hung in a window, some iron-on sparkly snowflakes for your favorite cozy sweatshirt, some snowflake gift tags, a Mary Engelbreit penguin magnet that says "Let It Snow", a spool of red ribbon with white snowflakes, a snowflake cookie cutter, and two packages of that Something Hot to cuddle with under that fleece blanket while enjoying the fire -- New England Mulling Spices for some hot mulled cider, and a Hot Buttered Rum mix which can be used with or without alcohol. Now if all that doesn't say WINTER, I just don't know what does! Except for maybe a few other things that are not in the picture, but will also be included in the winner's package!
So here's the part I know you are really interested in...what YOU have to do in order to get in the running for this prize. I'll make it as simple as possible.
- Look through my website for 3 items I have made that you might consider COZY. (I'll give you a hint to make it easier to get started...on my sidebar, there is a section called Hooked On Needles Links where you will find links to lists of all my previous posts using certain techniques. Pick one or two techniques that you think would be used to make cozy things and check them out.)
- Write a comment at the end of this giveaway post telling me what 3 COZY items you found and which one of those items you like the best.
- Please include your email address if you comment anonymously, if you don't have a blog, or if your return address is set to no-reply. If you are not sure, just go ahead and include your email address in your comment so I can reply to you. If I cannot send you an email, your entry will not qualify for the drawing.
- International entries are welcome with the understanding that the package will be shipped by the least expensive method.
On January 15th, I will announce the winner of my giveaway here at Hooked On Needles. Make sure to click on that friendly snowflake at the top of this post or on my sidebar to see the list of all the other generous crafters who are also offering fabulous Winter giveaways. But hurry because they all end by January 15th!
