So I only got 28 comments, but I'm still going to give the first 2 yarns because I"m cool like that. Yeah, you know you love me. Well, if you're EvaSB or mamaTAVE you do. Congrats, now don't come back (unless you really want to).

I did, however, win 2 of the Sew Mama Sew giveaways, and since I am the coolest and I left an interesting fact about orangutans on another ladies blog, she has decided I deserve a special treat on top of her 2 giveaways. So  I essentially won 3 items! Tempting to give all three of my yarns because of this, but since I didn't even reach my limit for the 2 of them I don't think I will. Darn, looks like I'll just have to keep it. This makes me so sad. [/sarcasm] But what should I DO with it?

Over at Sew Mama Sew they are having a giveaway day and while I don't really care about people visiting my blog (in fact, I really kind of like that nobody does since I only usually post once a month tops!) I do like sending things in the mail and giving things to people. Unfortunately, I didn't make a blog about a giveaway and send it in to them on time, which was by yesterday, but I still want to give something away! Like some of this yarn I've been spinning non stop like mad for no reason that is just cluttering up my life with more stuff. What am I going to do with it other than hoard it? So here's the thing, I'm gonna go enter a bunch of giveaways and if those pople doing the giveaways come visit my blog they can enter this possible giveaway. Or people from other places can enter too, like if I decide to make a post on craftster or something, because I might, you just never know. So below you see 3 yarns, hopefully. If I get 20people to post a comment on here, I will send one of them the first yarn. 30 comments, I will send the second one, 50 comments (just to be difficult, and because I KNOW I won't get that many and I really like that yarn) and I will send the third. What do you guys think? will this be a fun game or what? (I'm thinking WHAT!?)

In other (read: real) news, Alice is now crawling on all fours, sitting up by herself, clapping, and even pulling up on things. What a big girl she is getting to be!

Also, I think I want to participate in Sew, Mama, Sew!s May Giveaway Day. Not because I want to draw any attention to my "blog" but rather because I like to make things and I have so many things my husband would love for me to just get rid of, what better way than a giveaway? What will I give? An Apron? A small ball of yarn? Ooh, I may just have to surprise you (1 dear reader that I have). I may just have to surprise myself.
