Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Well last week I had my 500th post and I didn't even notice til after the fact :-)
So now I am hosting a giveaway, and I personally think its a halfway decent prize. I am the notorious fleece knot blanket maker. So I am offering up a 1 yrd fleece knot blanket of the winner's choice.
Here is an example. This was for a baby shower.

Winner will choose their preference of colors and preferances of do's and don'ts.

Leave a comment saying what color scheme you'd choose and who it would be for. Example: "I'd love a baby blue one for my son due in November!" Or "My favorite colors are green and purple!" Or whatever :-) these are not bed sized, they are perfect for a baby/child or as a lap blanket.

SO leaving a comment gives you one entry and if you link back from your blog leave a seperate comment and you'll be entered again :)

Contest closes at midnight on Saturday Aug. 30 and winner announced on Sun. Aug. 31. Remember, I'm going to make it after the contest so don't be hounding the mailman come that next Mon. a.m.! LOL

xoxo melzie
