September Love LinkUp Drawing

September is an odd sort of month. It spells back to school for many students, and falls between the excitement of Summer, and the holiday season.

For me, August is a month full of birthdays, and our wedding anniversary falls right at the end.

Three things that remind me I’m loved:
1. Gretel – this doll was made by my Oma when I was
five. I think of her every time I pick this lovely girl up.
2. The printer – Weird, I know, but hubby dropped everything
to pick it out with me when we discovered ink cartrages
were no longer made for our old one, and I had to print
something out.
3. That bit of red is one of my favorite skirts, which was a
surprised gift from a friend.

With those two inspirations in mind, I’ve decided to host a drawing this month. Of course, you’ll need to do a couple of things to enter:

1. Share this post on your social networks.

2. If you happen to have a blog, make an entry about something that reminds you of the love in your life. It doesn’t have to be strictly romantic love, either. It can be any kind of love – familial, friendship, whatever. Include the below linkup in the entry, and add your blog post to the linkup. If you don’t have a blog, put this info in the required comment. 🙂 Feel free to follow the picture’s example!

3. Comment on this post. (If, for some reason, you can’t leave a comment here, e-mail me at and put “September Love Drawing” in the subject line.) This is important, because it’s the best way for me to keep track of who enters this drawing.

The last step is optional, but I’ll love you forever if you could do it!

4. If you’re on any of these networks, follow me there –
Networked Blogs
(If you’re not on any of these, or are already following me, don’t worry about it.)

You’ll have until September 16th to enter. I’ll assign a number to each person who enters, and on the 17th, will use this random number generator to pull three numbers. Here’s what you could win –

1st Prize – A custom knit or crochet good of your choice – scarf, gauntlets, socks, household items, doll or blanket
2nd Prize – One free item from my shop
3rd Prize – 35% off coupon to my shop

One entry per person, please! I’ll also need a way to get in touch, so if you’re a winner, please provide me with the best way to contact you.

Thanks, have fun, and best of luck!
