Giveaway!

In honor of my 100 (and 101st) followers, I would like to host a giveaway!

On Monday, Nov 30th, I will choose at random, some lucky winner from the comments on this post, to send a pair of beautiful (and warm!) recycled sweater hats! (Custom sizes, of course.)

Liz said...

Totally just found your blog, and I am LOVING it! How in the world do you find the energy to do all that you do? I think I value sleep too much. Hee Hee.

Glad to get to know you.

Carlee said...

Great blog! I especially enjoyed canning season!

Frannie said...

I love your blog! I was inspired to look at sheet's at Goodwill last night. Found a great set but too much. I think I'm on the cheap end of frugal! I'll keep hunting.

Val in the Rose Garden said...

Thank you all! I am excited about this giveaway. :) I love the hats I have made the kids and I can't wait to share with one of you!

Shirley: Yes, I make the hats. They are SUPER simple though. One of those things that would be a great first sewing project. :)

Blessings,

Val

Tealah said...

Wow, I forgot you made these hats. Now I might have to go find some old sweaters of my own and start making Christmas presents!

andrewodom said...

We don't have any children yet so if I win do you think you can make a hat big enough for my head? hahahahaha

I love your craftiness!

Petula said...

That's fab you have that many followers. I'm sure it'll keep growing. :) I popped over from Valerie's place and saw the cute little hat you sent her and the girls, and all the other cute things. She's wonderful, isn't she?

I love the little hat pictured here. How creative. I try to reuse some things too and make them into other things, but I don't think I've done anything quite that nice or creative in a long time.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Jen H said...

Hi Val!

Woo-hoo for giveaways and cozy heads!

I love the sweet little mushroom and your new recycled triangle garland is ADORABLE!!

I made garland for our Christmas tree this week too (we really do share a brain!) but it was pom-poms strung on rainbow yarn, I'll have to post it soon!

The hat looks very good...and most people might wish to have. But RECYCLED is the word knocking the mind. Thanks for the wonderful event. Hope to be happy always.
