Bird Giveaway!


As part of the "Birds of Change" Exchange, I am giving away this little Linen Bird! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by midnight Vancouver time on January 22nd. I will announce the lucky winner on January 22nd through the day.

*Update: The Giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who left a comment. It's wonderful to see how many people visit my blog :o) The winner will be announced later today!

Don't worry, there are more birds in my Etsy Shop. I am listing Linen Birds, Cupcake Pincushions, House tape measures, Cup pouches and even some books! Please be patient as I will be listing items all day :o)


I still need to take some photos of the Cup pouches that I assembled last night. I was hoping to finish more than I did but the button ran away and that crafty feeling disappeared...
