First ever Hand Made Giveaway!!!

There's quite the bug going around these days, a handmade giveaway bug. Several of my cousins and my husband's cousin has sponsored giveaways, and I won on my Husband's cousin's blog (ug--can I just call her my cousin too? it's too long to say and type the other thing...), and my cousin's blog, so naturally I wanted to "pay it forward" if you will (plus it was in the rules for one of them).

Here's the deal:

1. Be one of the first three bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me.
2. Winners, you must post this on your blog, meaning that you will "Pay It Forward," creating a handmade gift for the first three to leave a comment on your post about your giveaway!
3. You have 365 days to make/ship your item. And, remember: It’s the spirit and the thought that count!
4. When you receive your gift, please feel free to blog about it, sharing appropriate linky love! If you are not one of the first three to comment on this post, you can still play along. Start your own "Pay It Forward" chain and encourage your blogging friends to do the same!

In addition, I would like to pick a random person from the remaining entries (assuming I get more than three) to also give something to, and there will be no obligation to participate in the pay it forward part.

What exactly will you win? I'm not exactly sure. I'm thinking of giving you a few things to pick from, but let's iron out those details later, shall we? For now, just get your entries in! You have until

11:59 PM MST Friday March 13th

to get your entry in (one per person of course). Good luck! And for those of my Male readers, have no fear, I can make stuff for you too, so don't be shy.
