4th Annual Crafty Staci Anniversary Giveaway

Four years ago today, I sat down at this computer (well, not THIS exact computer, but stay with me here) to start writing this blog.  I didn’t really know what I was doing.  At. All.  That first month, I stumbled through some sketchy posts, trying to get my bearings and figure out what I was doing.  A total of 42 people read what I wrote that month, and I think I probably didn’t even know some of them in real life. 

It’s been an amazing ride so far.  I had my first print magazine project published last year and I’ve had the opportunity to appear on some other blogs I admire.  My Etsy shop is thriving, and I’ve branched out to Zibbet and Meylah.  I’ve been the recipient of some amazing opportunities, and I couldn’t be more grateful.  But what I’m most thankful for is you.

Without all of you out there reading this, I’d be talking to myself.  Which I would do, but I’m glad I don’t have to.  All of your comments, likes, links and silent passing through are what keeps this interesting.  To show my thanks, let’s get to this year’s anniversary giveaway!

4th Anniversary Giveaway - Crafty Staci 1

Remember my project for Craft Warehouse last month?  They sent my this springy fabric and when I was finished with it I thought it would make a perfect anniversary giveaway!  The pictures don’t really do it justice.  You’d think after four years I’d be a better photographer, but I’m still working on it.  In addition to the One Yard Wonder Retro Bag…

How to Enter

To enter to win this entire set, just leave a comment here.  Whatever you’d like to talk about.  I’ll give you a second entry if you leave a comment here letting my know where you follow me outside of my blog (Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy, Instagram, Twitter, Bloglovin’). 

This drawing is open to anyone, worldwide, except my daughter who REALLY wants this bag.  Maximum of two entries per person.  The contest will be open until midnight Pacific time on Saturday, February 15, 2014.  I will choose a winner by random drawing on the 16th.  Please make sure your email address is linked to your name when you comment, or include it within your comment.  If I don’t hear back from the winner by February 23rd, I will choose a new winner. 

I can’t wait to find out who I’ll be sending this to!

  2. I find you to be so inspiring, I look forward to seeing your emails and other posts.
    Your projects always look very well done, I would be in heaven if I should happen to win this wonderful prize. It doesn’t get any better than handmade, my most favorite kind of gift! Keep the ideas coming!

  3. Happy Anniversary! I’m still in the talking to myself stage of blogging (tee hee – love that description!) so you are quite the inspiration. And I don’t know why, but I never went out to check out your Pinterest page until this post, so now I follow you there. Congrats again!

  4. I’ve been making your coffee sleevs to give as gifts for family and friends. This set though is ALL ME…. From the dahlias to the color it’s all my favorites!
    I do enjoy reading your blog, even though I’m usually one of those passers though. 🙂 I’ll try to do better. Not many people read my blog. (Probably because I don’t write much…) So I get it about comments and stuff really encouraging you. Even my mom doesn’t comment… blog OR facebook page. When not even your MOM doesn’t comment, it is really discouraging. 😦

  5. Hi! I love the fabric you have made the giveaway items in. I’m currently looking to enrol in a sewing class. I used to sew a lot when I was a teenager but my talent just seems to have disappeared along the way! It doesn’t help that my sewing machine is on the other side of the world at my house in Portugal and I can’t wait to get back there and fiddle around (hence the sewing classes!). I will then be able to confidently follow your tutorials, yay! Happy Anniversary – it flies doesn’t it? Cath

  8. I found your blog through a quilting website. Love several of your ideas. I made the football coasters for the Superbowl party (I added felt between the layers to absorb any water). My daughter is getting married later this year so I cannot wait to see if I can adjust any of your ideas for her wedding.

  18. Staci, I love this page. Your creativity and openness to new ideas is fab. I think I’m actually working on some Valentines today that I got the idea for from your links. I’m not up to speed on the computer, but if I find what I want, I print it – because I never seem to find it again. So having you on my regular email every week if just what I needed. Keep up the good work. On Etsy I’m known as “GrandmaKnows”, but I haven’t sold anything yet. Flying hugs and kisses to your daughter. I have 6 grown kids and 13 grandkidlets.

I want to make at least one of these little zippered pouches – they would be awesome for all sorts of purposes. I can envision a new makeup pouch – just need to check my stash.
