I saw this on Marji's blog - it's heartbreaking but I want to continue to pass it along. If you knit or crochet won't you consider donating a Hat for Alex?
Crafty contests and giveaways
Anna Maria Horner is having a one year blog party. To celebrate she is giving away a ten-layer cake made from the "finest Bohemian and Chocolate Lollipop ingredients". Curious? Go peek for yourself. You don't have to enter you know. In fact I would prefer you didn't because it might improve my odds, LOL! But if you insist, be sure to leave a comment before Monday morning.
Do you like cards and paper? Well then hurry on over to hurrayic and enter the card giveaway. She says you have "a few days to enter".
Trinity is busy with all kinds of celebrations during Sept. and Oct. - her wedding anniversary, her sister's wedding, two son's birthdays, a niece's birthday, and her mother's birthday. Whew! How she has time to host this giveaway I don't know! She's giving away one of three beautiful bags - I (of course) like the one that is shown with the dog. You have until Oct. 15 on this one.
So a Blonde Walks Into a Review is hosting a chance to win a $100 gift certificate from Skimbaco. I don't have little ones around at the moment (unless you count Sophia and Abby) but I expect to have grandchildren some time (I'm not hinting kids, honest!) so I browse through the cute online boutique children's clothing stores once in awhile. The deadline is Sunday, Sept. 30. Hey, we don't have to sew everything do we?
Blog design contest
Now you know that I always enter the contests when the prize is a free blog template. I need a blog revival desperately but am not proficient enough to code it myself. Splat Designs is offering a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. You have until Oct. 14.
