sponsor give away: Dirty Girl Clayworks!

Good morning, dear friends.  I'm so happy to announce a wonderful give-away by one of my new favorite artists: Faro of Dirty Girl Clayworks! She is generously offering one reader several of her handcrafted pieces:  a swallow knitting needle holder (or vase), and  two little sweet dippers: good for food or handy for buttons, thread, knitting markers, etc. They'd make a wonderful set, or divided up would make three beautiful gifts... however, I'd have a hard time parting with any of them if I was the lucky winner. Please leave a comment in this post before Tuesday at 9pm EST. I'll announce the random winner on Wednesday morning. Good luck!


Don't forget to check out her other wares when you're doing your holiday shopping. I know she has another dipper set in stock! Pin It

  3. I bought a tumbler from Dirty Girl for a friend for Christmas and when it came in I really wanted to keep it for myself! But I won't, of course. I'd love to win the tumbler for my own stocking, though...
