Group Sponsor Giveaway...

One lucky girl is going to be the winner of all of these goodies!  My sponsors have been sweet enough to offer up these awesome items just for my readers.  All you need to do is visit each of their shops below, then comment on this post with your favorite item from each of their shops.  Good luck!

Tia of A Cup of T is giving away two items!  This adorable floral hair bow, and these hand embroidered earrings.  I have a pair myself that I absolutely love.  These ones are more petite, but just as cute!

Hiya, Violet Bella readers! I'm Liz from Donna's Decembers. Even though my blog focuses mostly on crochet crafts, I love anything DIY. When I have an idea and can't seem to figure out the process to make it come to life, my craft book library is the first place I go to. Today I wanted to share a bit of my library with you and giveaway 4 of my most favorite and all-encompassing craft books!

Learn to Crochet by Sally Harding-- This is a short and sweet intro guide to crochet. There are cute and easy projects included to help get you and your hook started!

Knitorama by Rachael Matthews-- Don't be fooled, this book isn't only for knitters! This collection of patterns is fun, quirky, and a twist to your regular knitting or crocheting. It will definitely lend you a lot of laughs and a lot of inspiration!

The Big-Ass Book of Crafts by Mark Montano-- You may know Mark Montano from one of his many shows on TLC. Mr. Montano provides clear, easy to understand directions and really pretty glossy photos to guide you along your DIY adventure :)

Greystone's Creative Hands #3-- This book is the third in a collection of twenty two! Published in 1966, I hope you'll find this a vintage resource that you can bring to life! The directions and photos are to die for, I promise! 

Leah of Sookie Says is giving away $25 store credit to anything in her shop!  She has adorable handmade clothing with lots of doily accents, along with a cute collection of vintage.  She has a new upcoming vintage shop called Suds In A Bucket!  

Nicole of Cottage In The Wood's is giving away any one of her prints of her original artwork in her shop.  Not only does she have original artwork, but she makes the cutest leg warmers and cloth diapers for babies, along with handmade clothing! 

Be sure to follow the one rule above to be given a chance to win all of these goodies!

    & Kudos to All of You! -Definite Creative Individuals!!!!

  5. A CUP OF TEA:I love those fantastic wall-art pieces you make, because I've never seen anything similar before in my country (I'm from Spain). Be sure that the "Indian Summer necklace" is my favourite item of your shop. It's perfect for almost every look you may be wearing!
    DONNA'S DECEMBERS: I dare say her "landscape statement scarf" is the most suitable for my style, because I'm not used to wear crochet goodies (when I was in Poland I bought a summer cotton beret, just like those you show here and It doesn't fit me at all...). It's something new for me but this item has the ideal mixture of colours I could dress with. I love it!
    SOOKIE SAYS: I choose the "navy draw string scrapdress" as my favourite. It remembers to me the type of quilts and patchwork pieces my mother makes (I'll send some pics to you in the future, so you can figure up the type of bags and cushions she handmakes. They're so beautiful!
    COTTAGE IN THE WOODS: I've felt impressed by the prints there, so real and detailed, but the truth is that I'd like to have a baby (or a pregnant friend of mine at least!) just to see the little person wearing the cutest diapers in the world! I suppose the "lime green daisies" are my favourite but it's difficult for me to choose, sorry!
    Thank you very much.
    Best wishes from Spain.
