Holiday Giveaway

In the spirit of giving, I’ve decided to do a little Holiday Giveaway.  I’m offering to one lucky reader a Sweetie Pie Beanie, infant-sized (0-3 months), in 100% wool.  This warm & cozy beanie was crocheted by me with love and good intentions, and I’d like nothing more than to know it’s keeping some sweet baby’s head warm this winter!

To enter the Giveaway: Leave a comment. Make sure you include your name, so I know who to contact when I select a winner.  I’d also love it if you were to tell me what your favourite item in my Etsy shop is – but that’s not mandatory. Winner will be chosen by random generator.

Entries close Friday evening at 9pm.

Good luck, dear readers! Thanks for following our trials and triumphs through 2011 – it’s been great, hasn’t it?

Wednesday Giveaway

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve had an obsession with my spinning wheel lately.  I just keep spinning yarn, and I’ve decided that I need to give some of it away.  I like to share the fibre love!  It felt so great to give away some of my mesh produce bags a little while back, I felt it was time to share something else with the world.

This here giveaway is for a beautiful 2-ply yarn.  The first ply is natural silver/grey and the second ply is hand-dyed blue.  The colours together are, in my opinion, just gorgeous!  This particular skein is 96 yards.

To win some of my handspun 100% New Zealand wool yarn, leave a comment on this post.  For a second shot at the prize, head on over to my Etsy shop, “favourite” this yarn, and leave another comment here letting me know that you did so.  I’ll randomly select a winner from the comments on Saturday afternoon, and send out the yarn on Monday morning.  (Shipping may be delayed due to the current Canada Post strike.)

Good luck!

We Have a Winner!

Thank you all for your lovely comments on the weekend giveaway post. I did draw a winner yesterday, but didn’t have the opportunity to get onto the computer to post the results. Life is busy!!

The winner of two handmade mesh produce bags is – LISA! Congratulations, Lisa, please email trinityfibrecraft at yahoo dot ca with your shipping information. I’ll finish up making the bags and have them in the mail to you by Friday! 🙂

Weekend Giveaway!

Around this farm, we’re always trying to find ways to avoid plastic.  We’ve been carting our groceries home in reusable bags for years, but we’re still plagued by the little plastic produce bags.  In an effort to avoid those little clear bags of death, I started placing my produce loose into the grocery cart.  Effective in eliminating the plastic, but bothersome in that loose fruits and veggies were rolling all over as I tried to put groceries away.

My solution? A crocheted mesh produce bag.  Lightweight, stretchy, durable, and best of all – reusable.  Perfect for the farmer’s market!  Perfect for the grocery store!  Perfect for the kids to play house with!

Because I have been so enjoying my mesh produce bags, I decided to share the produce bag love and put them up in the Etsy shop. Each bag is made to order by me, crocheted with love and good intentions from 100% cotton.

To celebrate the opening of our local farmer’s market today, and the return of the beautiful sun, I am giving away a set of two mesh produce bags.  To enter, leave a comment on this post.  To enter a second time, visit the listing for the mesh produce bags on Etsy, add the bag to your favourites, then come on back and leave a second comment.  On Monday afternoon, I will randomly select a winner from the comments, and then I’ll get to work making two crocheted produce bags for the winner.  Every time you use your produce bag, you’ll know that Mama Earth is smiling.

Happy produce shopping!
