Giveaway!

To kick off a new year and a new shop, I'm holding a giveaway!
I started making felt play food for my little girl and then a friend asked me to do a craft show for her.
I had some leftover sets after the show, so I decided to put them up on Etsy. They all sold right away! Since then I have been coming up with new ideas for felt play food and having fun making all the patterns. The best things in life just pop up out of the blue and I love creating felt play food!

Those are so good! The pancake breakfast plate is my favorite! The strawberries are awesome too... and the eggrolls... and the bowtie pasta... Okay I like it all except the sushi and that's because I'm pregnant and the thought of sushi is not appealing at the moment. ;)

OMG, you have what I was looking for at Christmas for my hubby! He loves bacon and all things related to bacon. I can't eat it buy hubby and the fur babies will eat 2 pounds at a sitting if I let them. And then its a snack at night watching tv. I am going to bookmard your American Pancake Breakfast Set, it would be such a fun gift for him. Valentines day maybe? LOL, can you imagine!
I am sorry, I have no clue how to do the tweet thing, I don't do face book and I am just working on a web site and blog but they are not live yet. I will for sure be putting you on it when I finally figure it out.

You are soo talented, glad I found you on Craft Gossip!
