Crafts Through the Year Giveaway from A Child's Dream

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced 1/28/2012. Thank you A Child's Dream and to everyone that entered :)

EDIT: Oops... failed to mentioned, awesome Debbie will ship overseas, so EVERYONE is invited to enter :)

I read all the time, but my favorite times to indulge in a good book are in the dead of winter, curled up by a blazing fire, or while off on summer vacation, near the water, without a care in the world. So... whether you are bundled up here in the northern hemisphere or lounging on a beach in the south hemisphere, this is the perfect time of year for a book giveaway!

Debbie, from A Child's Dream, was kind enough to donate, what has become one of my favorite crafting books. I was given Crafts Through the Year by Thomas and Petra Berger for Christmas. I have other books by them, and have found inspiration in them all. I especially love this book because it takes us through a whole year of crafting delight for you and the wee ones in your life.

The book is divided into seasons. There will undoubtedly be some crafts that you already are familiar with, but others that may be new and inspiring. Here are just a few of the projects you will be able to make.

A Wonderful Sarah' Silk Giveaway! YAY!

 

 

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced Monday, November 28. Good luck to all :)

A few weeks ago we had a lovely new sponsor quietly join our family... Sarah's Silk. Actually, Sarah isn't new to Wee Folk Art. She hosted a wonderful giveaway last spring. But now, she has a permanent spot on our blog, so whenever you are HERE, you are just one button push away from visiting her wonderful shop :)

Very often interviews are done to introduce sponsors. Since we already did that in the spring (you can read about that HERE), we thought we would do something a little different. Sarah sent us one of her Starry Night Silk Scapes to test drive. We had 3 very eager guinea pigs! Below are a few of the ways they incorporated the silk scape into their play...  

Indoors... by draping it over their play stand, they created a lovely reading nook. That night they read books under the stars, using flashlights to read by. Camping indoors... totally awesome :)

The Hero of Canton... The Man They Call Jayne

First off, we'd like to thank ALL our readers for indulging our silliness, but sometimes silliness over rides sensibilities!

Then, let me say, Tim, Michelle and I were floored by how many people entered this giveaway, and how humorous many of the answers were! We had a blast reading each and every entry, and realized, we are amongst good company :) BTW... we had several incorrect answers, too, and we enjoyed them every bit as much. For that reason, we decided to leave all answers in the random pull.

For those of you that didn't get the reference, here's the explanation... no matter how lame it may sound :)

There was an awesome sci-fi series, Firefly, that was on television for only 1 season during 2002/2003. IMDB gives this description of the series:

"Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small, spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them."

Basically, Firefly was about space cowboys. It was a Joss...Read more

Improptu Giveaway and Challenge

 


EDIT: The giveaway in now closed. The winner will be announced on Wednesday morning, 11/16/11. Thanks for playing. We had an unbelievable amount of entries, and we had fun reading all of them :) Comments are now open on this blog entry.

First off, let me apologize to all you non-geeks out there. You are at a distinct disadvantage in this giveaway. HOWEVER, the geek in me was so tickled today, that it prompted me to want to share my chuckle with those of you that are like minded. So, here goes...

I happened to be married to the most wonderful man on the whole planet. I don't think I am exaggerating here. He brushes my hair each night before I go to sleep, and wakes me each morning with a cup of coffee... in bed! And if that isn't enough to make you green with envy... he loves to go shopping with me. And not just to hardware stores or chains that sell oversized flat screen televisions. No... this man actually enjoys quaint little shops and art fairs. So, today, when I told him I...Read more
