A few things and a giveaway!

Yes, I said giveaway. But you have to wait until the end of the post for the details. :)

It has been a week since I posted again and I have very few pictures to share, but I have been busy with so many different things, including some early spring cleaning:

I've also had a few custom orders to take care of and I've been trying to get more knitting in --

-- AND I spent most of today working on my bathroom. Yeah, remember how I started that like, what, A YEAR AGO? No seriously. I looked it up and it was a year ago. Makes me feel sort of pathetic really...

Anyway. Here's a needle felting project I've been working on sporadically:

blue bird!

Sorry for the blur, but I just could not hold my hand steady while I took the picture. Hours of removing and replacing the tub surround did not help my already shaky self.

Okay, now for the giveaway! I signed up for this on Teresa's blog, so I am copying her instructions, with a few changes.

The first 5 people who respond to this post WHO ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING will get something made by me. This offer does have some restrictions & limitations:

•You will receive this item before the end of the year...or sooner.
•You will have no idea what the item will be, or when you will receive it.
•To participate, you must re-post this meme on your blog and put together something to be sent out as 5 surprises of your own. These surprises can be anything -- it's up to you!

Here's the thing: if you don't want to do this but you were going to leave a comment, just put a note in that you are opting out of the giveaway. I understand not everybody is going to want to have a giveaway of their own and I am greedy for comments, so I don't want to scare anybody away with the "first five" thing. ;)

Okay, time for fun!

YAY! First commenter! Wait, is there a rule about joining everyones, but only doing one yourself? Lol!

But YES! I would love some boys clothes :D You can email me...

i'm game!! now i have something to post about over at rumtum... although i may be hard pressed to get 5 commenters!!

oh- and please don't worry about the picture tag- please.... i have forgotten all about it!

Teresa R said...

Hm, wonder if we can bend the rules a bit and let me enter yours even though you've entered'll be like a swap! I know I'd love anything you make! :)

Amber said...

Elizabeth -- Tsk, tsk, tsk... I guess you can enter mine, too. But only 'cause you're preggers. ;) And I will be emailing you sometime this week with a shipping cost on some gently used sweet baby boy clothes! :D

Sarah -- Woo Hoo! Glad you're playing. :) I will try not to feel guilty about the picture tag, but you know how that goes...

Teresa -- Yes! Swapping sounds great. :) Maybe I should go enter Elizabeth's too, hmmm?

Teresa R said...

LOL...I wonder if I've started a trend turning this meme into a swap instead of the "pay it forward" original intent, but I still love it! I'm so hooked on swapping ever since I did it with Gracefruit and Michelle-SoapPixie! 8) Thanks for letting me, Amber!

i forgot, in all my excitement about the giveaway, to say that that little bird is soooo stinkin' cute!!

Meg said...

I know I'm too late for the giveaway, but sounds like lots of fun. :) Your little felted bird is too cute!
