Hello again, I'm back, and this time I've got what everyone's been waiting for. Congratulations to the winner of Weekly Giveaway #6... ...Vickie! She gets her crafting inspiration from a couple of places, she writes:
"I love knitting and my favorite for patterns, ideas, solutions and yarn is ravelry. Locally, I support my local yarn store which has some yummy yarn and wooden needles."Vickie, thanks for writing in, and keep an eye on your inbox for an email from me. There were lots of inspiring ideas and exciting craft resources in the comments on last week's post, so if you're in a bit of a crafting drought right now, be sure to head over and take a peek to see where other people are getting their ideas from. I was especially interested to see how many of you find inspiration and materials at your local thrift shop. It would be great to see what you make with the things you find (hint, hint – send me a picture!)/ Now, on to this week's giveaway. I have a copy of the book Feathering the Nest: Tracy Hutson's Earth-Friendly Guide to Decorating Your Baby's Room to give away. This is a Stewart, Tabori & Chang book, so you know right away that it's a beauty. This book is hardcover, with pages and pages of fabulous photos and a DIY project at the end of each chapter. You're sure to get all sorts of ideas from this keeper, whether you've got a baby on the way, toddlers underfoot, or older kids (or even grandkids!). For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post by 5 pm on Friday, June 12. This week, I'm looking for crafting ideas for kids. What's your favourite way to spend a rainy afternoon with children. Finger paint? Glitter glue? Simple needlework? I'd love to know. As usual, I'll post a winner one week from today (Monday, June 15). Have a great night, folks!
