Blog Giveaways

I just LOVE blog giveaways. The odds of winning are good. The people hosting them are often the sweetest you'll meet. And by helping to promote a blog giveaway, you're often also helping to promote a small home business or cottage industry. What can be better?

Well, winning! I just found out I won this fabulous giveaway from KissMyStyle!

Isn't it gorgeousness? Megan of KissMyStyle has more yummy goodies in her online shop. From organic eyepillows to fun flower hairclips to simply elegant earrings. Just a little bit of pretty for everyone.

And do you remember this giveaway I posted about a few weeks ago? That's right, I won that one too! I've been meaning to blog about it, but wanted to do it with a proper review of the book. For now, I'll just say that the book is lovely. But expect a more thorough review...eventually. Tina of Peacefully Knitting is a knitwear designer you definitely need to know. I swear, every time I visit a new online knitting store, I see her patterns. And it's no wonder. Her designs are classic and stylish. She has this one hat pattern that I'm definitely going to have to pick up as soon as I have time to make it. Do you see the way the little belt fits through the twist of the cables? It's those kinds of details that really make a pattern sing, don't you think?

So if you're hosting a blog giveaway, be sure to let me know! But more than that, when you see a blog giveaway, show it some love. If nothing else, you'll help someone build their business in this tough economy. And you never know. You just might win something phenomenal.
