Springtime Giveaway Heaven

I am participating in an amazing giveaway at 2 Bags Full. It is hosted by Vicki, one of the most talented, creative and generous bloggers, no, people I know. And I know a lot of talented, wonderful, generous people! This give away is to celebrate spring and she is doing it right!

So why are you reading about it here...well, you can win one of my Garden of Delight Needle Book there, custom designed just for you!

I created the above needle book just for Vicki. Actually, she purchased 2 and waited forever while I stitched them up, and down and all around. I had loads of fun creating for her because she is so open to unique creations.
Here are a few more in different styles and colors.

These needle cases are one of my favorites to create because each one is a reflection of the person who is ordering. No two are alike. You will be able to help me design your needle book to your specifications. You can request specific flowers, birds or any other imagery that is meaningful to you. I'll give you more details before we begin.

If you are interested in ordering one, I'm afraid that I am not taking orders at this time. However, your request can be added to my waiting list. I am hoping to get back to this design in late June. In the meantime, take a look at my Etsy Shop. I have so many pretty pincushions and needle books to entice and hopefully inspire you.

Well.... lets get back to Vicki's Giveaway.
She is featuring her Spring Woodland Nest. Oh my, it is just so beautiful!

Isn't it just so amazing? Well, if you visit her blog, you will see how many wonderful things go into each and every one of her nests. She only creates a limited number each year. They are true labors of love. Well, you can find out more when you get to her blog.

When you purchase her items she nearly always has a charity donation connected to her sales and this one is no exception. She is working with Lily's Place, which is a pediatric addiction recovery center in Kentucky, where she lives.
She organizes her Pink Scarf Project each October to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer.
She also hosts and organizes the Grow Your Blog Party to help up and coming artists/bloggers find each other and find followers. So many artists have been found and have connected because Vicki remembered what it was like to have something to share. All they needed was for people to find them. Vicki helps!

Well, you can also find some amazing things in the 2 Bags Full Spring Give Away.
