Giveaway Time

Enter My Giveaway On This Post!!
 
To celebrate 4 years of blogging and over 1200 posts I'd love to have a GIVEAWAY!!
I've gathered together a group of things I made and there will also be one more surprise (non-handmade) item that I'll announce later this week.
 
Here's a look at some of the handmade goodies.  I tried to choose "gifty" kind of things.  So if you don't really need them for yourself, you can share them with others.  There's a pretty collage designed on a piece of tin, a pincushion made with an old jello mold, a burlap pencil case that I decorated with some vintage trims and buttons, and a tiny little walnut pincushion. 
It's been a crazy weekend and I just didn't have time to take all the photos I wanted to....If you check out the last two photos below you'll see little peeks at more than these four items.  I'll share close-ups of those things tomorrow.  Then there's still the extra surprise - it's a "gifty" kind of thing too!!
 



So.....please leave a comment for a chance to win my giveaway.  Just one comment.  Nice and easy.
No extra chances for mentioning me on your blog (of course you can if want to!)...I just want to keep this simple.  Leave a comment - any comment - on this post....oh, and watch out for the surprise later this week. 
I think you'll like it!
 
I'll choose the winner next Monday...October 8th!
