100th Blog Post Giveaway!

You heard right...100 posts! I can't believe it either. I started this blog more than a year ago and it continues to be a wonderful way to express what excites me, to share my inspiration with others who really appreciate it, and to show you all what I've been working on. It also serves as a great record of my life...something that's invaluable. I can look back on it years from now and be reminded of all the great things I've experienced and fabulous friends I've made. And I just love having all of you be here with me to share and enjoy it with! Your comments mean a lot to me and I'm always checking my inbox to see what you guys have to say. Many of you have blogs too and I so enjoy reading them and being inspired...a wonderful trade I think!

Thank you so much for reading and sharing and what better way to thank you all than to offer a fabulous prize for this milestone!! This bunny mom and baby are a Halloween spinoff of my Easter bunnies. They are needle felted wool (a bit different than spun cotton) and are itching for a new home. Just leave a comment on this post and any other post I create between now and next Tuesday (the 15th). Comment on multiple posts and be entered multiple times. I will announce the winner late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Yay! Good luck!

And I'm off to bed early tonight...I'm getting up super early tomorrow for the last Brimfield show of the year...is anyone else planning on going?? :)

Crystal I am totally digging your Halloween ornaments. Any chance you'll be offering them on Etsy? Also, the new little red devil is too sweet... he may be calling me! Have fun at Brimfield. Good luck, and I hope you score big! Janie

Congratulations! I recently found your blog + site after making my Etsy purchase from you... and I couldn't be more thrilled! Your work is amazing. This little bunny girl trick-or-treater is darling! My favorite part? Mommy bunny carrying the skull candy bucket. So many, many treats! :)

I'm one of those bad bloggers that reads faithfully, but never comments. And I really hate commenting on a givaway post for the first time. But, quite honestly, I would never forgive myself if my name wasn't in the running for one of your fabulous creations! I spent part of the day on Etsy admiring your creative little characters. They are wonderful! Congrats on 100 - I had my 700th not too long ago.

TOTALLY jealous of your hitting Brimfield tomorrow - highlight of my day tomorrow is having my oil changed in the car - would MUCH RATHER be in your shoes. Hope you find tons and tons of treasures!!!!

Lucky me for finding your blog tonight. I saw your Martha episode a while back and was totally in awe! I also needle felt on occasion and love your giveaway. Please count me in.

Waving hello! Please toss my name in the hat! :)

Congratulations on your 100th post! Your blog is so very charming and I adore your artwork.

I would so love to learn how to make spun cotton (or is it wool?) ornaments. Do you possibly know of any books or articles on them? I've done a Google search and couldn't really find any how-to's.

You're so very sweet to have a giveaway. Thank you so much for your inspiration and sharing your darling artwork with us.

Sally
