Today is the fourth anniversary of this blog! Here are a few uninteresting stats:
Since Blogger decided to start keeping track, there have been…
- around 1,500 posts (I estimated down because of the reruns and a few things I still have in draft form)
- 6,362 comments (lots are mine though…)
- about 225,000 views
- 133 followers here, 190 on reader
- And the most popular post is the Crocheted Scalloped Border Tutorial with 8,376 views (as of yesterday) thanks to Pinterest.
So, enough of that. Let’s have some fun to celebrate!
In honor of the occasion I put together a simple button. Hey, other people have them! I promise I won’t cry if you don’t tuck it somewhere in a corner of your blog. At least I won’t cry in public. (c;
(note: clicking on the particular button you see above will not take you anywhere – the code does work though)
I’m always looking for a good excuse for a giveaway and this is as good an excuse as any. The set you see below can be yours! [Amusing note: I put all this together yesterday evening then realized I had not one green-and-red item in my stash. So all of what you see was made last night and this morning!]
|1 hot pad, 2 utility cloths, 1 cotton dishcloth, 2 over-sized button magnets|
|rectangular hot pad in super-bulky acrylic|
|ribbed cotton dishcloth|
|2 over-sized button magnets|
|2 utility cloths, knit on one side, woven on the other. (as shown, folded twice)|
|And all very Christmas-y!|
I’m making it very simple. All you have to do is leave one comment. Say how much you like the button. Say hello. Say anything.
For one additional entry do any or all of the following and leave it in one more comment. [To make that clear, if you are a follower, for instance, leave one comment saying hello and another comment saying you are a follower. If you are a follower, throw a huge party to announce how awesome this blog is, hire a plane to sky-write “Praying with my Feet”, and also put the button on your blog…you still only get two comments. (c;]
- become a follower (or say that you are)
- put the button on your blog/site
- mention the giveaway somewhere
- or something else creative
The winner will be chosen by random number selection at noon, CST on December 1st, 2012. In the event that the winner does not respond by noon on December 8th, 2012, then another random number drawing will be held and an alternate winner selected.
Note: I will ship free of charge anywhere in the continental US or Canada unless you are willing to pay for shipping somewhere else.
