How fun! Crochet School!

OMG!  Have you seen all the beautiful crocheted lovelies out there???  I have been loving all the crocheted products shown over the internet!!!  Makes me want to pull out my crochet needles and yarn, and just DO it!   I have sweet memories of my Grandma teaching me how to crochet....God Bless her. 

Have you been itching to learn how to crochet?  Well, here's your chance....and it's FREE!  I happened to come across the Crafty Mix blog via Pinterest (OMG! a new obsession of mine lately!!  but that's another story )  this morning.  I love her blog!  

Dana, from Crafty Mix is offering a course called 'Crochet School'.  It is designed for the beginner.  Each day, for the month of October, she will be teaching some of the basics of crocheting.   How awesome is that? Thanks Dana for this inspirational opportunity!

Dana has created some beautiful crocheted lovelies.  You can especially see them in her 365 project in which she posted 365 different granny squares.   Here are some of her crocheted lovelies.

Aren't these beautiful?  You can find more of these granny squares on her blog

During the month of October, I will be posting some of my newest crocheted creations.   I would love for you to join me and post some of your crocheted lovelies!  You CAN do it! :)

I won a GIVEAWAY from Lia Lane!!!!

YAY!!!  How surprised I was to receive a message from Eva indicating that I had won one of the giveaways that was being hosted on her blog, evariccistudio.com.   I just couldn't believe it!!  What first attracted me to her blog was her photography.  Her work is absolutely gorgeous!   I especially love her 2012 calendar  

Aren't these photos beautiful??  Here are a few other photos that are available for sale in her etsy shop

Who wouldn't want to adopt that pet goat?? Isn't he cute?  I love the dreamy feel that Eva's photography portrays. 

Anyways, back to the giveaway topic, Eva told me that I had won a gift certificate to be put towards anything I wanted from Lia Lane OMG!!!  I sure had a hard time making up my mind, but I finally decided on this one.

"A Crow's Home"

 I love how Lia used her mixed media art techniques to create this beautiful work of art!!  I knew this piece was for me, and I just had to have it! :) 

Well,  it just arrived in the mail today! It was beautifully wrapped,  but what was even more beautiful was the folk art painting itself!  I  LOVE it!!!   It's already being proudly hung up in my studio!  Thank you so much, Lia!!!  :)))  You sure made my day!
