The Winner!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in Give-Away Day! I was utterly floored to receive so many comments and thoughtful answers to my "Best Prize" question. But first, the winner!

Because of the high number of comments, I had to forgo my original plan of pulling slips of paper out of a hat, so I used and had the eldest kidling push the select button. And the winner...

Threaded Basil! I'll email you for your address to send off your padded pouch! Yay!!

I loved reading all of your comments. One of the most touching and frequent answer to my question was the prize of spouses or children. Ingrid's champion spaghetti eating son made me laugh and laugh.

Thanks again to everyone who played and shared with me!! You're all winners in my book (was that to schmaltzy?)

Today is Give-Away Day!

One of my absolute favorite blogs, Sew, Mama, Sew, has declared today Give-Away Day! I slipped my blog in just under the wire to participate.

Here's how it works. Today, lots and lots of crafty bloggers are all giving away something hand crafted or items to aid and abet a hand-crafter. You can enter to win by leaving a comment on their individual blogs. I love this idea because it's always cool to win something but even cooler to find crafty blogs!

Here is my give-away item. It's the first of my Padded Pouches:

I am especially charmed by the interior:

I'm a sucker for a good stripe.

Unlike my other pouches, this pouch is a little smaller and padded with cushy fleece. It's got a cozy feel and the fleece adds some extra protection for anything delicate that lives in the pouch. I'll be adding this pouch to my shop later today.

To win this pouch, leave a comment answering this question:

"What is the greatest prize you've ever won?"

Post your comment by 7:00 pm (PST) on Friday, December 5th, and my random number picker (ie, whichever kidling is closest to me at picking time) will select the winner. I'll ship off the pouch early next week and pay for domestic or international shipping.

Thanks for playing and go check out some other blogs!
