My First Give-a-way!!!

Ciao tutti!!!

I can't say thank you enough for the support I received after posting last week. I was kinda feeling down in the dumps you could say - and all the support was simply inspiring! So thank you!!!

I really feel like doing something special for you all so I've decided to do a GIVE-A-WAY!!!! Yes you heard that right :) I've been toying with this idea for some time now so why not do it now?!

I'll send out a package of goodies to the lucky winner which will include some of my very own hand-dyed floss and this biscornu I stitched up not too long ago using Manka's Mystery SAL design... and a few other things to be revealed later! AND perhaps more than one winner just to make things interesting :)

The Rules are as follows:

(1) Be a follower of my blog.
(2) Create a link in your blog's side bar and/or post about my give-a-way.
(3) Comment on this post if you wish to be entered into this give-a-way indicating your email address (so I can notify you). 

It's as easy-peasy as that folks!

Give-a-way ends on JUNE 19, 2012

Good luck everyone!!!!
