Let’s celebrate 2016 with a Giveaway – Crochet and Knit Animal Lovie Books!


Let’s celebrate 2016 with a giveaway.  A choice of my Crochet or Knit Animal Lovie Blanket books.. woohoo!

I can’t believe it’s already 2016 and almost the end of January!  Where does the time go?  It seems the older I get the faster time seems to go.  I remember being a small child and feeling like a year to forever to end.  I wanted it to get to the end of course because that meant Christmas.   2015 was full of so many fun and new experiences.  One of them of course was release of my Crochet Animal Lovie book.   Later that year I completed a Knit Animal Crochet book which was released this month January 2016.   Some of you may have already seen it.

Both books are available at Joann’s,  Hobby Lobby and Walmart.  Some people have told me they have found it at other stores as well.  The Crochet Animal Lovie book also has a mini-book format that is available for sale only at Wal-Mart.  Unfortunately the Knit Animal Lovie book will not be made into the mini-book format.    Both books are also available for purchase online from LeisureArts.com   They also have a downloadable version.

I want to host a giveaway to welcome in 2016.  I will be giving away 3 signed copies of my Animal Lovie book.  The winners will be able to choose either the Crochet or Knit version.  I realize that everyone does both so this will give everyone a chance to choose the book the prefer.

To enter this giveaway just

1) become a member of this blog (It’s free and your info is never shared)  and

2)  add a comment below.  Something like “I want to win the Crochet Animal Lovie book”  or  knit book.

That’s it.   In 7 days I will choose the winners.  I will announce the winners with a follow-up blog post AFTER the winners have been notified.   The giveaway is opened worldwide.

These lovies are so fun and addictive to make.  They make perfect  gifts.   I hope you will enter the giveaway today and Good Luck!

P.S.- Be sure to share the post with your crafting friends.  Sharing is caring!  XOXO

New way to Yarn-Bomb.. well not exactly but totally Fun


Have you seen all those photos of yarn bombing?  I think it’s such a fun idea.  However since I am limited in my time I decided to do my own version.  I call it my “Project in a bag”   What I am doing is going around my city and other cities as I travel and hanging up these little bags.  They contain 1 of my printed patterns, 1 plastic crochet hook (in the size needed for the project) and 1 skein of yarn.  I am only choosing projects/patterns that use only 1 skein of yarn.  The supplies have been purchased by me and are not sponsored by any company so you will have different brand yarns in the bags.   I am also attaching my business card with a note on back that reads, “You found my gift.  Enjoy it!”  .

I left one of my little bags at a local park (they are in plastic to protect from water) and waited in the car to see if anyone would find it.  A lady walking her dog found it within five minutes.   She took it off the fence read the note and smiled ear to ear.  Her friend then read the note too.  They did a high five and left smiling ear to ear.  I love spreading yarn happiness.  : )

Be on the look out you may just find one of my bags in a town where you live. If you would like to enter for a chance to win one of my bags. (I will be giving away 10) then please do the following;   1) Become a member of this blog and 2) Leave a comment. Winner will be chosen in 2 weeks. The giveaway is open worldwide.  I know this isn’t the regular way to yarn bomb but I want to spread yarn happiness all around me.   Good luck.  

UPDATE:  Winners have been selected and notified
