LBB said...

Hello Katie! I'm a "newbie" to your blog, but not to your Etsy shop. I adore your yarn wreaths and think they are a most original idea! I'd LOVE to be so lucky as to win either one, but I'm really loving the soft cozy-ness/Fall-ish look of the "Home" wreath. Such talent! Wishing continued success to you! :)

Angela said...

Well I am a newbie to your blog and hate to enter a drawing right off the bat but..I can't help myself. I love both of them so it is hard to choose, maybe the brown. I would be happy with either so if I am drawn, surprise me! Now I have to go visit more of your blog, thanks.

Maryjane said...

Ohh, they are gorgeous and I LOVE your blog!! If I had to pick, I'd pick the brown one. Beautiful!!!

i love them both, but "pink" is my favorite of these two. can't have too much pink really...

Oh gosh. I don't know! I love the "home" one since we just bought our first house but the pink was is amazing! Amazing! I would be honored if I won either one. Probably the pink would be most fitting in my living room against my newly painted wall!
Thank you for being so generous. I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed that I get picked!

Oh Katie, the brown and white one would make a lovely companion for the owl wreath I just purchased from you. I think you know how appropriate "home" is for me. Crossing my fingers and trying to figure out how to rig this drawing!

I'm not trying to win a wreath here (you can keep my name out of the drawings), but I wanted to say happy blog birthday and thank you for your gorgeous posts. Since the day I found out about your blog, I've been rather addicted and always look forward to seeing what you'll post next.

AMY said...

Hi Katie! This is Amy G from Fayetteville -- friend to you and Tera and Amy Z and Pamela. I haven't talked to you in ages, but I love reading your blog. You've inspired me to do more crafting! I would love the home wreath -- gorgeous! And Happy Birthday to your blog! I love your work -- you are so talented. I wish I had picked up more of your stuff when we were both still in Fayetteville -- I only have a couple of pieces!

g said...

I have been coveting your wreaths for a long time & would love to win one! While they are both beautiful I guess, if pressed, I would have to say I'd prefer the pink one.

Thank you so much for such a generous giveaway & for your wonderful blog, which I read pretty much everyday...but, shhh, don't tell anyone at work!

Roberta said...

Your blog is wonderful and I read it daily. And your creations are lovely. The pink one!

Lorrie said...

Your wreaths are so beautiful! Either one of them would be perfect. I'm moving in a week and would love to hang either one in my new home.

I love them both, but I think I am partial to the brown one. What a lovely and generous thing to do!!

Pamela Jane said...

Does that mean I'm not too late to tell you they are both adorable, but the pink one would look really at home next to my white feather tree with its pink ornaments :).

McMaster & Storm said...

Your work has been fun to follow! Glad we found you via @home. The pink one would be delightful hanging in our back-of-the-store-studio! We love to add "pretty" things as we are there a lot!
Best,
Kara & Darcy

Magpie said...
