My Blogaversary Giveaway.....


January 3rd is my blogaversary!! Whoo hoo..am bloggy happy dancin'! Honestly, I can't believe it has been a year. What amazing folks I have met here!! So many wonderful, dear friends! You truly have changed me, you have. Sooooooo..I am doing a giveaway to say Thank You to all of you!!
Huge hugs..here we go...

#1. The above piece is an original, "Valentine Fairies" it is 8 1/2"x7". It is pen and ink and colored pencil. Please click on the picture for a closer view!

#2. My second treat is this sweet knitted neck scarf. Deliciously soft, 100% acrylic spun yarn. Wonderful Valentine's colors. It is short so it tucks in your coat without bulk. The heart button sits on a pocket to tuck the top piece through. This way it does not fall off your neck when you bend over. I love these. I have created this one in adult size.

In a week I will be opening a new Etsy shop. It will offer up my yarn arts, sewing and..what ever fiber fun I can come up with. Stay tuned!:)



If I get a big enough response, I will add another prize..I do love the sneaky treats!!

Ok....here are the rules...
Three chances to win..
1. Post a comment here letting us know that you would like a chance to win!
2. Become a follower of our wonderful group! If you already follow us - you get a second chance too!
3. Put a post or side link on your blog, linked to this blog post... so folks who follow you can join in the fun too!! Make sure you come back and let us know you have!!
4. Become a Fan on my Cottage Garden Studio Fan Page. If you already are..you get an extra chance to win too!!

We will be drawing names from a hat at 9am Saturday the 9th of January 2010. No comments will be added to the hat after 9am on that day.

You've done a wonderful job Sarah...as far as I can tell you've "let fly" extremely well this year, of course I know there's a lot of space to fly in and you are making use of it. Now lets tie a scarf around my neck!

debbie said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR SARAH AND HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY,
WHAT AN AWESOME GIVE AWAY...I AM A FOLLOWER
YOUR PICTURE IS FULL OF HOPE BECAUSE OF THE BUMBLE BEE'S. IT IS SCIENTIFICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A BEE TO FLY BECAUSE OF HIS BODY SIZE BUT YET HE FLIES.....HE IS ONE OF THOSE MIRACLES OF GOD THAT WE TOTALLY OVERLOOK AND YET IT BRINGS US SUCH HOPE. I, WITH SOME OF THE OTHERS COULD SURE USE YOUR SCARF, BEAUTIFUL SCARF, AS WE ARE HAVING THAT CANADIAN COLD STORM BRING BELOW ZERO WINDCHILLS THROUGH TOMORROW. FROSTBITE WARNINGS
BLESS YOU FOR BRIGHTENING BLOGGIE WORLD.
ANGEL HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE
