Valentine baskets and a giveaway

17 01 2011

In honor of my blogiversary coming up on January 24th I wanted to have my first giveaway. And since my first blog posts were Valentine related, I thought it would be appropriate to give away a Valentine item.  I love making baskets and wanted to create some Valentine ones for a craft swap and for myself.  Why not make a few extras and give one away?

I made the labels using printable cotton.  I made my fabric labels for my sewing projects with it and they have been washed in my kids pajamas many times and the ink is still on the labels with minimal fading.  The label inspiration came from Sweetwater.  I would LOVE to be able to subscribe to their label crew each month, but right now it’s not in the budget, so making my own is the next best thing. I used Photoshop and some brushes I found around the internet to create the graphics for the labels. It’ not Sweetwater, but still kinda sweet 🙂

To enter the drawing, please leave a comment on this post letting me know where you heard about the giveaway or what link party you came from.

If you want a second entry, subscribe to my blog and leave a second comment telling me you subscribed.

The winner will get to choose between the two baskets in the photo below.

The drawing will be on Monday, January 24th, so check back to see if you are the winner.

Good Luck!Sharing at these linky parties:
