SHOW AND TELL: 200th Post Giveaway

My crafts were my sanity saver during our battle against secondary infertility and they are my sanity saver as a parent. I love to create beautiful things. Sometimes I am inspired to work in floss, sometimes in fabric, sometimes in yarn. I love to make things for other people and so I want to make something for one of you to celebrate my 200th post. All you need to do to enter this drawing is post here. I will randomly select one of my commentors to receive a gift. The winner will get to select the type of item and I will work out the details. I do promise you will receive something but I’m not going to promise it will happen quickly…LOL. 3 kids and my various other responsibilities make a quick turn around impossible. The cut off for posting here to enter the contest is 9/8/08. Remember, this will be a real item. If you want to receive it, make sure I can contact you (don’t comment anonymously). If you don’t have a blog, put a comment here and send me an email via the link on my blog. Here are a few of the things I can make…

    I love that you made all of these things. I think craft projects can be so therapeutic. I crocheted a lot until recently. Now blogging gets in the way πŸ™‚

    Those are all so neat! I wish I were more artsy-craftsy. I used to crochet a lot, too, until arthritis got in the way. My thumb joint just aches from too much repetitive motion. I thought I had carpal tunnel, but dr says no.

    Everything is lovely. Keep up the great work. πŸ™‚

    So very cool! I’m a huge crocheter so I know how wonderful it is to have something make. It gives you something to work for and look forward to. I always tell hubby it is like a treasure hunt for me. I can’t wait till I’m finished to see what new and cool treasure I have made!

    Wow. You are very talented! These projects are beautiful.

    I love the cross stitching. I used to do a lot of that before I got married. I did try to teach myself how to knit while I was on bed rest last year. I was doing a darn good job at it (if I do say so myself), but haven’t started back up since the babies came. Sigh. I should figure out a way to start up again.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    That’s great to have found such a productive hobby! I’m so lazy. It’s all I can do to blog and mow the grass. πŸ™‚ I do love that bag. Good idea for a ‘200th post giveaway’…

    I’ve never had the patience to make things like that, kudos to you. They are cool!

    I don’t want to enter the drawing, but I did want to say congrats on the 200th post! That is so awesome!

    Very cool. I love the christmas ornament cat one. I too have a lot of craft stuff but just haven’t felt that motivated to get them out lately. Instead a bury myself in books. I’ve done counted cross stitch, scrapbooking, rubber stamping and quilting/sewing stuff.

    You do incredible work!! I love the Christmas kitty and the blanket looks so snuggly! Not only are you very talented, but talented in so many areas!

    My sympathies to the passing of your FIL. He sounded like a wonderful man.
