I have been planning a giveaway for a while now. I have this really cute little purple bunny I made and some Easter sweets to give away.

Leap Day Giveaway

My giveaway will start at 12:01 am on February 29th (EST) and go until 11:59 pm (EST) to allow for different time zones to enter. Hopefully I'm not just flattering myself thinking people from other time zones will want to enter. :p

The linky will open at noon MST on February 28th and close at 10:00 am MST on March 1st, to allow for people in different time zones to participate.

40 Days

Just today, and for the next forty days*, I gave up buying anything that isn't absolutely necessary. Which is about the hardest sacrifice I can make, including giving up chocolate and TV. I love shopping. No, I am addicted to shopping.
And wouldn't you know it, as I'm trolling Etsy for Pinterest fodder, I come across this:

I know I am a grown woman who has absolutely no use for a mobile, but I love owls. I adore them. And I want that mobile! It may be a good thing I have given up spending, because otherwise it would already be on its way to me.
I am, however, deciding that these little guys are necessary, as my daughter does need an Easter present:
(Also from Hingmade)
Well, on a not so whiny note, I am going to be doing a giveaway soon. A handknit bunny with an apron, as well as some Easter / spring sweets. I have no pictures right now, but believe me, it's a cute giveaway!

*It's actually 46 days, but Sundays don't officially count. (But they do for me.)

Long Time...

Hi everyone! Long time, no post.
One of the better hotels on the island ordered a massive amount of stuffies from me for their gift shop (yay!) so I have been super busy with getting those done. Not even 25% yet. Plus my daugther's father is out of of the country for the winter, so no mini vacations (read - six hours on Sundays) for me. So, busy busy.
Plus, I was really smart and decided I needed to put the computer away for awhile, so dismantled it went into the basment. Without thinking of my Etsy shop or the fact that I need to check my e-mail most every day. Thank God for the Kindle Fire!
Now, I know it's Saturday, but I haven't done Favorite Thing Friday in so long, and I am itching to.
Today, (and it's been for a while) my favorite thing is the fact that my small island is so artist / artisan / maker of things by hand friendly. We have at least one artisan fair / farmer's market a week for half the year, we have church and school fairs all year round. And do most resort hotels really purchase hand knit stuffies for their gift shops? They might...I have just not witinessed it.
I just can not wait for them to open for the year. I am going to take so many pictures! And when I get a website going again (I had nataliesknits.com, but I was paying way to much to host it. So I think I am going to go for something like smilesarecontagious.com, so it's not so limiting, and use a host like DreamHost), I am so going to put a huge "NOW AVAILABLE AT THE WHITE ELEPANT GIFT SHOP!
