Magz-Tagz Giveaway

This craft giveaway is for children but it looks like fun! I'd love to win, for my little sister!
What are Magz-Tagz? Well, they're jewelry and this giveaway is for 2 tagz and one kit (winner's choice). The fun thing about this jewelry is it is tradeable and each tagz comes with a code to enter at the site so you can play a game called "Tag, You're It!", the goal of which is to collect 4 clues and figure out the common denominator. Once the answer is discovered, it can be submitted online and kids are then automatically entered win amazing prices such as a Wii. However, no one walks away empty-handed -- everyone who enters to win receives a special-edition tag just for participating. Isn't that cool?

Pink Purse Photos and Pattern

This is a purse I made. It's done out of Joann Sensations something (it's furry and a lot like Lion Brand's Fun Fur except it has beads.) and Lion Brand Homespun. The strap is Icord and quite sturdy. Here's an upclose picture of the furry texture:

It was a simple knit, I believe I did it on US size 11s or maybe 10.5s, but I know it was a bigger needle which is my preference for just about every project. Goes without saying I've never finished socks :) All the pattern is stockinette stitch, I think it was 25 stitches, and just kept going with the fur til I ran out and then switched to Homespun. I did decrease the flap into a triangle simply because I thought it would look better but it would look fine with a square flap,too.

New Changes

I have decided to completely redo this blog. I have another blog, one I like very much, over at, but I can't do some of things I want to do such as buttons for other blogs! So I'm going to redo this one and make it my craft blog. Mostly I knit but on occasion I will sew but that counts! Look for pictures, patterns, and giveaways,too!
