Giveaway for a cause!

Or giveaway for the cure!  Actually, a raffle for the cure, but giveaway got your attention more quickly, right? :-)

For the next week you have a chance to contribute to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure and maybe get a little something back!

What will you get?  Well, I'm glad you asked!  There three exciting giveaways.

Opportunity #1- A custom-made item made by me!  This could be a crocheted scarf, hat, baby set, pillow, or dishcloth set or a custom-designed wreath or that Pinterest idea that you just haven't quite gotten around to making yet.  We'll work together to come up with the perfect project!

Opportunity #2 - Another custom-made item made by me!  Maybe the opportunity to request that perfect Christmas gift...for yourself?

Opportunity #3 - This is the big one!  A photo session with the fabulous Carrie of Richardson Fry Photography!  The photo session is valued at $175 and includes 40 minute shoot with 20-25 high resolution digital images.  Carrie took the picture to the right over there, the one where we are jumping for joy, as well as the ones below (and all the amazing photos on her website, of course).  Carrie will schedule photo sessions in the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina or in Tulsa, Oklahoma later this fall.  What if you don't live in these areas?  You can exchange your photo session for $175 worth of fine art prints!
