Let's talk about a giveaway

In a day or so I am gonna have a September giveaway.I just can't think of what I would like to give away.I am a pretty poor person but I just enjoy sending a little something to a new friend and I enjoy people visiting my blog.
 Well,whatever it is,it will be a nice little something,I will think more about it tonight and get the giveaway started in a day or two.
 So, I like to ask random questions every day so todays question is totally unrelated to this post but I just like to ask questions.Do you make any home made crafts or art?? What is your talent???
I have made scrabble and domino necklaces but not really great at it.I have also made tote bags also not really good at it. What do you make or have you made?

I paint canvas'. I'm not that great with it, but still enjoy doing it.

I have made a little of everything in the past. I just like to use my hands.
Now I mostly sew and embroider, but I occasionally drift away to other things. I just can't do it all, and embroidery gets expensive too.

My little hands are always busy. Creativity is certainly a part of my everyday life, I love it:o) I love to craft with paper, beads, fiber and more:o)

Your giveaway sounds wonderful and know it will be something quite special. Don't worry about how big or small, it's a matter of the heart:o) Enjoy a most beautiful and creative week.

I crochet and knit regularly, but also enjoy painting and drawing, something I'm planning on getting back to doing pretty soon...I started a rooster painting with acrylics earlier this year and he's crowing to get finished ;-)

I also used to do papier mache and salt dough ornaments, both of which is very inexpensive to make since a lot of people throw away their old newspapers and salt and flower is not that problem is that I have too much I want to do and there's not enough hours in the day -

I do Giveaways on my blog every month and I chose an item that doesn't weigh too much because I pay for the shipping and I include all my bloggers, even overseas. I once won a giveaway for a little amigurumi doll, but had to pay $5 for shipping and all of a sudden, it didn't feel like a "win" anymore. If you can make home made greeting cards (I don't know if you scrap book) but that would be a nice giveaway too and it won't weigh very much. Fortunately my crocheted potholders and such are not that heavy either so I can afford to do one every month since I'm not wealthy either... I hope you're doing ok. I keep thinking about that post about your neighborhood and I wish you could move away from has me concerned for all you guys' safety.

With Love,
Doris and Gizzy :-)

I love to craft even if I'm not the best at it, I knit sometimes and I love to make cards, made some earrings before, its always fun to try! I'm sure your projects were lovely, I bet anyone would love to get a domino/scrabble tile you made! Just curious, have you ever asked around for someone to sponsor a giveaway? A lot of etsy accounts love to do giveaways as good PR. Good Luck!

I like to make
little sachets to
put in drawers or
closets....I picked
lavender this summer
and dried it and I
use the flowers to
stuff the sachets : )
I'm also learning to
crochet! Oh, and I
used to scrapbook,
but I've handed most
of that over to my
kids, now. Which means
of course, that nothing
has been done on their
books in several years!

I love to do different crafts. My latest phase is sewing bags. It has become an addiction. My family calls me the bag lady!!

I love to crochet hats and I am really loving painting on canvas! It is so much fun to create new things.
