Bad Blogger

Do you guys remember back in February when it was my bloggy birthday? You may not have realized but I held off announcing a winner, trying to avoid the ridiculous delay of my previous blog giveaway. I did pick a winner — two in fact — and I picked them twice. Back in early March I thought I’d just remember them for the few days it took to get the gifts together but a few weeks later I couldn’t recall who it was I picked and since I was going to finish up the gifts that weekend I picked again. This time I wrote the names down. Now if I could just find that paper. This time it’s for real. The gifts are just about ready, I’m taking a photo and announcing the winners….. The random integer generator has selected Sarah and Shin. I’ll be emailing you guys to get your addresses but let’s get on to what they’ve won:

Altered Frappuccino Bottles

More altered frappuccino bottles. These are filled with mostly vintage crafty goodies. We’ve got buttons, trim, bits, and twine. The twine is from the new Martha Stewart: Crafts collection at Michael’s, everything else is vintage. It seems to me that no matter your craft — collage, knitting, sewing — you should be able to use this stuff. I hope Sarah and Shin find these to be fun and useful and I apologize for the beyond ridiculous delay.

Altered Frappuccino Bottles

In an effort to redeem my good blogger name I have a few more things to give away this week. Nothing too exciting — stuff like duplicate craft/cooking magazines, yarn I won’t use, and homemade jam. So check back later and I promise to send everything by Saturday. I don’t think my reputation could take another delay.

    I stumbled upon this and wow, your creativity is amazing! I wanna be like you when I grow up! VBG

    BTW, is the template for the bottle carrier somewhere to be found, or is it your own creation?
