Bloggy Giveaway--Now Closed

**This bloggy giveaway is now closed** Thanks to all who participated and gave such great comments. Janette is the winner of the $15 gift certificate to our etsy store.

I'm participating in the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival. Click the link to go to the carnival where you can enter to win literally hundreds of things.

The good news is that even if you have no time to play on the computer trying to win hundreds of things, you can still enter to win one thing right here.

This week, I will be giving away a $15 gift certificate to be used toward the purchase of an item in my etsy shop. This contest is open to residents of the United States or Canada only. The winner will receive free shipping on whatever item they choose. Items in my etsy shop include handwoven rugs, wool yarns and roving from our farm, and the ever-popular cotton dishcloth!

To be entered in this wonderful drawing, you must go to the etsy shop and look around a bit. Then come back here and type a comment that tells me what you'd be likely to buy with your $15 in monopoly money. If you are not a blogger, go ahead and post anonymously--just be sure to include your first name and an email address so I can notify you if you win.

The lucky winner will be picked randomly by my choice of methods--actually, I prefer darts! The contest ends at 5:00 p.m. EDT this Friday, April 25. The winner will be announced on Saturday sometime...

NEWSFLASH: Due to some good-natured begging in the comment section, I have decided to take a chance with learning to ship items to Canada. Can't be that hard, eh? So if you're in Canada, feel free to enter. Same rules as everyone else...

  9. I would use it for either the dishcloths (the Lavender ones and the Flame ones, I love those) or I might put it towards that beautiful Zig Zag Rag Rug for my daughters' room. I don't know, me or them, me or them...

  10. I love your rugs!! However, due to the fact that every spare dime we have this year is going toward paying off a mountain of school loans, I wouldn't buy the rugs. I'd put the $15 toward green and/or blue dish cloths.

  17. Oh, I am in love with your rugs but like Bethany said, money is tight and that will have to wait for dh to be working again. So I would definitely go for the socks, or the dishcloths, or the socks, or the dishcloths.
    We had handmade dishcloths are first year of marriage and they bring back such sweet memories of setting up my first home. But my feet are cold right now....Nostalgia or instant gratification...such a hard decision!!!

  20. If I won, I'm about 99.99% certain that I'd use the gift certificate toward the braided wool rug and if the cats were nearby when I was using it, I'd be obligated to get a cat toy. I love the colors in the rug.

    I would use the gift certificate to purchase the blue/green roving. I am disabled and have taught myself to needle felt and hope to be able to sell some items at a craft show this fall to bring in extra income. I just love working with rovings of all colors and that one looks really pretty. Lynn

    So, here's my entry. I've looked around. IF I can scare up extra money, I would love your Midnight Blues Rag Rug ... we just threw out the runner in our mud room and it would look fabulous. If I can't ... it's socks all the way. Oh for a pair of socks I didn't have to knit myself :-). Plus I'd like to see what sort of job the cool machine does!

    Great contest idea! Thank you for including us Canucks :-).
