My fellow crafty Americans, it’s time to head to the polls. But before you do, don’t forget to stuff a small project into your bag and maybe even load up your mp3 player with a CraftSanity podcast because there’s a good chance that you might have to wait in line for a while. I don’t know about you, but having a project to work on really takes the edge off when I’m stuck in line and feeling a bit agitated.
I’m a journalist and independent voter, so I won’t be publicly endorsing a presidential candidate. However, I will say that I’ve been enjoying the election-related art and craft that has been created. Check some of it out here and here. I finished stitching my “craft the vote” apron tonight and plan to wear it tomorrow.
And, before I hit the hay, I want to announce the first winner of the Amy Butler giveaway extravaganza. My little Amelia, 3, picked this winner winner who will receive a copy of “Amy Butler’s Little Stitches for little ones: 20 Keepsake Sewing Projects For Baby and Mom,” a stack of fat quarters and an individual pattern. Are you ready? Okay, here we go… And the winner of a book, individual pattern and fat quarter stack is the author of this blog. If you’re reading, dear winner, please e-mail me your mailing address and I’ll ship your prize.Congrats!
And if you didn’t win, don’t dismay. I will be giving away two more packages like this and several more winners will receive individual pattern prizes. Everyone who leaves a comment by the Nov. 15 deadline will be entered into each drawing with the exception of the winners. Sorry, only one prize per person. Another winner will be picked very soon, so check back again to see if you won. Good luck everyone!
Oh, and if you missed my interview with Amy, check it out.
