Happy Day for Everyone Giveaway!



Photo

It's my birthday and it's a giveaway for everyone! On top of that, I expect to pass 10,000 visitors to my blog today!/a>

I love the idea that One World-One Heart has about doing a giveaway, so I'm pleased to be participating in that wonderful event.


I'm giving away this lovely bouquet of Yo Yo flowers, handmade by me!

What you have to do:
-Take a look at my blog, and tell me what you think.
-Consider adding me to your blog roll or blog reader by adding my RSS feed!
-Leave me a comment with your thoughts on my blog on this post only. I must have a way to contact you back, so if you do not have a blog of your own, leave your email address.
-This is open to everyone, international comments welcome.
-One entry per person.

I will draw a random name at 6pm Central time USA on February 12th 2009, and the winner will be announced then!

Even if you don't win the bouquet, you can be a winner, as everyone who comments and leaves a way to be contacted will get a PDF of the instructions on how to make the Yo Yo flowers!

Thanks, and good luck (and welcome to my blog if you are new)!

EDIT: COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING!

Love the yo yo flower ball and can't believe with all the years I've been sewing I never made a yo yo!!! That's gonna change soon! Well have a fun day and I'll be back regularly to check out what you're up to! Sincerely, Jeannette

My hubby has a "Maneki Neko" and my Aunt was a school teacher for 19 years... she has LOTS of owls! I didn't know that about the Owl in Japan. Interesting bit of trivia to share with her. I wish I could win one of these to give to them... but perhaps I'll take some inspiration from your work and make my own.
