A List Maker's Life: Feeling Gifty

Feeling Gifty

Update -  January 21 5:26 pm:
Yay!  We have a winner.  The lucky number was 22!  One of my favorite numbers for sure:)
Congratulations Rach!  Thanks for being a faithful reader, commenter (that doesn't look like a word), and encouragement.  I'll be in touch soon to have you pick out your two faves!

There are tutorials on several variations of washer necklaces and bracelets around the blogosphere. Since I have a fine collection of scrapbook paper scraps in too cute to throw out patterns I had to give it a try with my own variation.

 In addition to the diamond glazed paper pendants, I also tried the nail polish variety. Too fun!

To thank you for being fantastic readers and a source of encouragement for me in the last  365, I am looking forward to giving away a necklace. In fact, the winner will be able to choose a 3 piece set: 2 washers and 1 chain.

Unlike many of my past giveaways, instead of using Random.org I have already chosen a winning comment number. When the comments reach the "magic number" that friend will be gifted! That's it, no special required entries. Enter as many times as you like until a winner is announed, just never two times in a row (does that make sense?). I'd love to hear how long you've been reading A List Maker's Life, what your favorite posts are, your favorite crafts to make, how you like to celebrate life, and more!

Ready. set. comment!

  4. I Love these! I have been reading your blog for several months and have been following your journey through your pregnancy and with your new little one. I shared your story with a previous co-worker whose new grandchild was born with spina bifida. Thanks for your great posts!

  5. Well, as you know, my favorite craft is crocheting. I love creating things from basically a really long piece of string. It is so amazing to me. I do find it sad sometimes that all of these crafts are becoming lost arts. Things like crocheting and quilting that were passed down every generation have fallen by the wayside with uprise of technology. Maybe they will all make a comeback. I sure hope so.

  17. Oh, crafty Katie. What ISN'T there to love about your blog?! My favorites are posts on bringing Christ to the center of your family, whether that's through your projects, crafts, celebrations or even the latest books and music you're into. I enjoy knowing you as well a your perspective on all things listy. Your ship sounds as tight as mine, and I love that. Miles away and not even the same blood, but still so much we share. It's great knowing that someone else "gets it", even if we never exchange the words.

  19. I just spent a few minutes browsing your first posts and recalling the memories that you had documented. I guess back then I was a silent observer, but still reading from the very beginning. It's fun to see how the blog has changed over the years!
