Our First Giveaway!!!

Ok, folks…We’ve reached our 100th post and it’s time for a little giveaway! We’re still in our humble beginnings, sponsoring our own giveaways and all, so we’re keeping it low-key with a book. But, if you’re looking to be inspired then you’ll definitely want to get in on this giveaway.


I love this book by Alicia Paulson (from Posie Gets Cozy). A few of my favorites from the book are the sleep-over pillow (on the back cover), the fabric growth chart, and the photo memory game (featured in this post). But truly, there are so many lovely things to make here, I can hardly keep myself from picking it up and looking at it every chance I get.

But you really just want to know how to enter, don’t you?

Here’s the deal: I love posting links to tutorials and inspiring projects, but am limited by the fact that I don’t have every single crafty blog or mommy blog on my reader. I do have an impressive amount of subscriptions, but I’m greedy…I want more! So what I want you to do is check out the Crafty List on my right sidebar and tell me who I’m missing. What blogs inspire you? Who is out there creating projects that you think should be featured here? Leave a comment and gimme some links!

Your comment is your entry into the giveaway. And if you really can’t think of any links to send me, just leave a nice little comment saying how much you love One Crafty Place. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Want to earn a second entry? Link to me! Either in a post (whatever little blurb you want to put together) or on your blogroll. Just tell me in your comment that you have linked to me so I can check it out and I’ll add another entry for you.

Please only one comment per person. If you have more than one link to share, just pack ’em all in to one comment. If you post a link to me AFTER you already commented, shoot me an email and I’ll get you counted twice.

International readers are welcome to enter. Contest ends at midnight Pacific time on Saturday, March 7. I’ll announce the winner on Sunday.

Any questions? Send emails to onecraftyplace(at)gmail(dot)com.

Good luck!

    Check out http://www.ohbrooke.net. She writes a fun blog that is a mix of fun design ideas and DIY Crafts. She just bought a new home and is showing how she’s decorating it herself. Definitely some fun things to check out and a few giveaways as well.

    Congrats on the 100th post!

    I had SO enjoyed One Crafty Place! It is one of my first stops on my blogroll, in fact! And as for crafty blogs that inspire me…well…the list is really too long. But a couple of them would be:

    Nini Makes–ninimakes.typepad.com


    (did I just miss it in your sidebar? You should DEFINITELY put it up there!)
    Posie Gets Cozy–rosylittlethings.typepad.com.

    Her book looks like so much fun! Thank you for the neat giveaway!

    I just found this website the other day and I’m back for a second look since it is such a great site! I came here from Whimsy Love…but you have that in your list already, of course!

    I’m a fan of Inchmark (even though you already have that one listed) and Wise Craft. (And, of course, you!)

    I just discovered your website…. I came from http://chicaandjo.com. I discovered that one on a post card in a craft store on Sanibel Island, FL. I have always been a crafter but I now have a “crafty” grand daughter and my searches have taken a new direction. Your site definitely fits my new interest!
