A year of giving...new blog candy!

Happy Holidays - hope everyone had a great Christmas and best wishes to all for a safe, happy and prosperous New Year.

To mark the new year, I've decided to offer up 12 handmade gifts over the year - one for each month of 2008. The first two gifts of the 12 are spoken for, as I have a few pay it forward obligations to finish up. The remaining gifts will be posted on the blog throughout the year. To start off with, I thought I'd offer up 4 spots for gift recipients as blog candy. Those 4 people will receive a gift made by me - either stitched, beaded or another craft that happens to be taking my muse at the time. The 4 recipients will be picked from those leaving a comment on this post. There's no eligibility requirement - whether this is your first time reading the blog or you're a regular visitor, everyone is eligible.

If you'd like to be selected for one of the four spots in the first six gifts, please leave a comment below, and I'll draw from those who have commented on New Years Day.

Hope you had a fantastic Christmas Karin!

Your tree must look glorious with all those fab ornaments hanging there.

Can't wait to see all your beady stuff in 2008 (and obviously your stitchy stuff, lol)

I still haven't fired up my tiny bead kiln but 2008 is a new year and I'm planning on doing a TON of stuff I didn't get around to in 2007 so never say never, heheh.
