Homemade giveaway

I saw this handmade giveaway on both Styxie's blog and Iggy's blog. I nearly didn't sign up for it, but luckily I changed my mind in time to get a spot with both of them. :)

The rules (lifted nearly straight from Iggy's blog):

The first five people to comment on this post will get something made by me. My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done within a year... Not by the end of this year, but within 12 months. This time frame is to give me time to complete current projects, create your item, and to allow for postage time (most of the time it only takes a few days to get stuff from the UK to the US or Canada, but it can sometimes take anything up to eight weeks... Though that length of time for delivery is rare).
4- You have no clue what it's going to be... It might be a poem. It might be a story. It might be something knitted. It might be something made out of clay. It may even be something completely different. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely creative.

But there's a catch! You must at least consider re-posting this on your own blog and offer the same deal to 5 of your own lucky blog readers (unless you've already done so, in which case I don't think you need to repost the offer... Unless you want to, I mean).

So, the first 5 people to leave a comment telling me they are in, win a homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it.

Any takers?

Sounds fun. Count me in. So I have to make things for 5 bloggers who read my blog? Is that right? I've never done one of these before.

Im only any good at making 'a mess' LOL

Good to see I have a few takers. :)

Iggy and Toasty... Are you in? If not, I still have two slots available.

Iggy, you've already posted it on your blog, so you wouldn't need to again. Just need a yes or no...

You have to post this offer on your blog, and the first five people who say they want in on it get handmade items from you, which you just make and mail to them. Then they have to post the same offer on their blogs (unless they've already offered it on their blogs recently) and the first five people who say they want in with them get handmade items from them, and so on. All you have to worry about is posting the offer on your blog, getting the names of the first five people who want items from you, making things for them, sending me (and anyone else you sign up for this with) your home address when what I make you is ready, sending what you make to the people who signed up with it with you, and posting about what you get from anyone you sign up for this with. Are you clear on how it works now?

Yes - count me in :)
