Here it is, the anticipated autumn dishcloth giveaway! :)
The winner will receive not one, but BOTH of these lovely autumn dishcloths as a set. :)
If you are a public follower, or become a public follower of this blog before the giveaway is over, please make a SECOND post telling me you're a follower and it will count as a second entry (if you have entered first with a comment as detailed above).
For MORE ENTRIES, Make a blog post (and/or Tweet) with the link to this giveaway and then come back and post a seprate comment on this post saying you have blogged/tweeted it.
The prize is a set of two 100% cotton dishcloths as seen in the photos above and at left. One is a ripple pattern and one is made to look like a leaf. These are crocheted by me. We do not smoke nor allow anyone to smoke in our home, we do not have a dog, BUT we do have a cat, a rather hairy one at that, so if you're allergic you might wanna put these straight into the washing machine before you oogle them. ;)
These dishcloths are a labor of love, handmade with care. Being hand made, each one is a UNIQUE one of a kind creation. The dishcloths the winner will receive are the exact ones pictured, not copies or variations of the ones pictured. They are the first of their kind that I have ever made: I did NOT use a pattern for these! I literally made it up as I went along. Therefore these will be totally unique and you will not find their exact duplicates anywhere (I would imagine a ripple dishcloth is not too rare a find? BUT I have never seen another leaf that is like mine). I do plan on making up some more of these, and writing down the pattern for the leaf one once I have tweaked it to where I like it. I retain all rights to the design and would appreciate it if you would not try to copy the leaf to sell, because that would be stealing and stealing is bad. And mean. And rude.
If you wish to purchase a set as a gift for someone, or for yourself should you enter but not win, I would be more than happy to see what I can work out for you! Contact me at mamamirage (atsign) yahoo (dot) com for more information.
I cannot refund or replace your prize for any reason because it is a gift, not a purchase.
I am not responsible to compensate you in any way for the results of any technological errors or glitches, any typos, any misunderstandings, any misuse/loss/damages of the prize after it has left my hands, and I am not responsible to compensate you for the prize not being what you expected.
I am not responsible for anything that happens to it in the mail. After it leaves my hands and enters those of the USPS, any delays or damages are the fault of the US postal system and I am not liable.
I'm not rich so it will be shipped cheap and may therefore be slow to arrive.
Please understand I'm a mommy and I know you moms know how hard it can be to get to the post office with multiple toddlers. So please extend me some grace if I am slow to get it to the P.O. for mailing. I will try to let you know when I have mailed it so you know when to expect it.
MUST BE IN THE USA TO ENTER at this time. I'm really sorry but I cannot afford the shipping out of the country. I wish I could and if at a later date I am able to afford that, I will have giveaways open to everyone!
Giveaway ends sometime between bedtime on Tuesday, September 22nd (the Autumn Equinox... nifty coincidence!) and morning on Wednesday, September 23rd. Probably somewhere around midnight I will lock the replies and that will signal the end of the giveaway. If I don't remember to do that before I go to bed, I'll do it when I wake up instead. I will announce the winner on Wednesday.
To claim your prize you must check my blog on Wednesday, September 23rd to see if you've won and if so, you must leave me your email address where I can contact you about mailing it. If you have not gotten your mailing address to me by Sept 29th, one week from the close of the giveaway, the prize will be forfeited.
I can't wait until midnight to post this! Eeek! I'm so bad at waiting! ;) So here you go, an early start; HAPPY FALL! ♥♥♥
