Ready for a giveaway?

Johnny


O.k -I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be...

I have decided to give away a scrappy collage notepad that I made for the shop.
I used a bunch of little scraps from my collection, and stitched them on every which way to create a little collaged notepad...I have sold a few of these notepads in the shop. They are all one of kind.

The giveaway prize

I like to keep my giveaways fairly easy, so I think I'll just ask for you to leave me a little comment here at the end of the post telling me how you found my blog. Always curious.
The rules ; ) You have until midnight August 6th to leave your answer/comment here in this post. Also, please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you with your link. Otherwise, we'll go with the 2nd runner up...Either Coco or Johnny will choose a winner from the hat.

Oh and I did snap a few pics this morning-it finally stopped raining long enough-
Up top there is Johnny, he didn't want to come out of his cage today, so I took these shots through the bars. Here's another :



The foliage hat:

I finished it in just 2 days!

This hat was so much easier to make than I had anticipated. I will definitely be making more! It's hard to see the lace detail in the picture.The pattern mentioned no blocking, and I don't like to (out of pure laziness to really try) so I think the pattern will be more obvious as it gets worn.
The yarn is, I believe, Manos del Uruguay, but cannot seem to find the color online. The other ball I have- I tore the tag off of and threw away apparently when I wound it. I love the color.

And because I always like to have 2-3 projects going at once, here's another I've just started :
