Two cool blogs!

Recently I found two cool blogs that are new to me!

The 1st one is By Hand Giveaways. Not only do you get to see/enter the cool giveaways different bloggers/artisans are having, but you can also have your giveaways posted on this blog!



The 2nd is Totally Tutorials. This blog really intrigues me! There are so many great tutorials written by a bunch of talented people! The sewing ones have been catching my eye a lot!


Thanks for looking and have an awesome day everyone!

Winner of the Glowing Optical Monstrosity Giveaway!

It's time to pick a winner for my Glowing Optical Monstrosity Giveaway! My cat Maynard has been waiting patiently to pick a winner!

There were 23 people who signed up and left a comment, thank you everybody!

Every one's name was written on a piece of paper, then cut...



...and crumpled up.



Here's Maynard showing me he's ready...



...then I draw back my arm and throw them across the room!

He's honed in on one...



...and brings it over so we can see who he picked!






It's Eliza from Bead A Little Dream!
Congrats Eliza! I hope you enjoy this necklace!



Maynard has had a blast... he looks hungry for more...



...and looks forward to the next giveaway!



Happy New Year everybody!
