Contest Alert: July 2011

So I’ve decided as a thank you to all of you who continue to support me and my work I will run a contest each month. I will be giving away hand crafted bookmarks. Yes made by me..It takes about 4 hours of work or more to make one and I wanted to do this for you guys. The contest will be easy. All you have to do is leave a comment here on this contest post.

The contest will run from July 1 to July 31, 2011. On Aug 1, 2011 I will post the winner.

So here is this month’s giveaway.

It is large enough to fit a larger size paperback.

Good luck…
Stay naughty
Savannah

That is very pretty Savannah. Are those bookmarks hard to make or just time consuming? I like how you did the color pattern.

Savannah ChaseJuly 1st, 2011 at 9:38 am

Becky thank you. They take about 6 hours to make and are a bit hard if you have never made them. Also it dies hurt your finders and the thread leaves floss burns..I know it sounds so horrible but I’ve made them for over 20 years so I’ve perfected the technique…

As a crafter I know how even though it’s hard on hands & time it’s a great feeling to make something that is appreciated. Beautiful work Savannah! Just like your writing.

They look wondeful, Savannah! What a colour sense you have!
And how talented you are being able to make these yourself.
I used to knit Aran sweaters, but its weight as it grows is now too hard on my wrists. (I’m a lot older than you, Savannah! – 28 you said? Oh to be that young again…)

Vicki TremperJuly 7th, 2011 at 9:53 am

Those are super cool. I bet I could crochet something similar – I have tiny crochet hooks and embroidery thread in just about every color that I used to make beaded bracelets with.

Good luck with the contest and with your continued success!
