Crafts from me to you!

This came from Liz's blog, who got it from Momza's blog (and so on and so forth I'm sure). I can't believe I'm doing this. Just when I think I have more than enough craft projects to keep me busy...I...I can't help myself.

But don't worry about my serious crack craft addiction. All you need to know is that I'm offering you a chance to get something - HANDMADE - by yours truly. No real catch...just leave a comment. This will be for the first 5 comments (yes, even you international folks...though I can guarantee it will fit in an envelope if that's the case).
Here are the rules (original text in red, my additions in blue) -

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!

2. What I create will be just for you (no sweatshop mass-produced products here. I save my young workers for more menial tasks).

3. It'll be done this next month (As in, by the end of April. Peanut is turning 1...gotta allow time for me to lose my mind planning a party first).

4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or something sewn. I may draw or paint something. I may bake something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

5.The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog. (This is not necessary for entry. I know a lot of you that read as lurkers don't have a blog...so just leave a comment. I'd *heart* you if you promoted my blog in some way, though - blog, twitter, facebook, a passing conversation with your dentist)

Ok...and go!

I don't have a blog but I am an avid reader (or lurker) of other people's blogs. I found yours through C. Beth quite a long time ago and now check it every morning! You're very funny, inspirational, and of course, random!

I don't have a blog but I have and will promote yours to my friends and family. And, I could do the craft thing for my friends as well. I've loved the things you have made and shown us.

I'm not really crafty, but I will post something on my blog to link back to your blog, but I'm really just getting my blog started...not sure anyone even reads it!

To all - There's no need to promote my blog in any way...it'd be nice, but not required. So, all three of you so far are now on my craft list. :)

@ Ciara - LOL. I'm sure Apok would enjoy that!

@ Jean - aww, thank you!

@ JessJess77 - I didn't know about your blog...I'm reading it now.

I will do! Just found your blog through C Beth and the One Minute Writer. I have a new blog, would certainly offer the same to someone, mine is new though and right now I only have three followers. And they aren't my relatives!

What a fun idea! I missed out but it does make me think that soon I need to set up another art pen pal exchange....

And it rocks that I saw my name in two of the above comments. Cooool. :)

Isabella said...

C. Beth - you didn't miss out...I am going to send a craft to the first five commenters - you are number 5. :)

Yes, several of my readers came through your blog - thank you! I hope that my blog has done the same for you.
