Yarndemon and *Giveaway*









I am so thrilled to tell you all about Yarndemon! It really is a slice of happy on the internet!
Anita, the poly clay maverick, has sent in stitch marker samples for both February and March and now, she's doing orifice hooks!
I got a special orifice hook surprise in the mail and it's almost silly, how proud I am to have a personalized tool from her!
Anita hand sculpts all of the "critters" you see in her shop and I am stunned she isn't selling these for 2x what she has them listed for. I purchased a set of her colorful Easter egg chickie stitch markers for a swap partner last month, and they came packaged in a jewelry box/bag and were extremely well received!
Well, in the March box- Anita went the extra mile and sent in loads of the most adorable hand sculpted sheep stitch markers! I know several of you want to string them about your necks, they are so adorable!
I am so excited to be giving away an orifice hook of your choice to a lucky commenter here! Anita has made me both a sheep and a flamingo one, and I honestly can't decide which is cuter!
All you have to do to be entered for this giveaway, is leave a comment here about something you like from Yarndemon's Shop. I will be drawing for the winner on Tuesday, so you've got time to scope everything out! Remember, always leave a way for me to find you- and tweeting and blogging etc about this contest will net you extra entries!

The little robin and nest stitch markers are the cutest things ever!

Elaine said...

Every time I think that I've found the cutest ever stitch markers, I scroll down and find one that it even cuter.

I think I'll say (for now) the pea stitch markers. I just love them.

I'm posting this on my blog

I just love Anita's items and am a lucky receiver to an Oreo Tape Measure :) In talking with Anita and having an extra she custom made me one for my yarn bag that I take to the bowling alley, now I'm the proud owner of a bowling ball tape measure that even has a bowling pin on it..lol The girl is outstanding in her crafts!!

Nice goodies you have and they are all great ones! Always hard to choose..lol

Cindy said...

If I have to pick, and I shouldn't have to, I would choose the Sweet Pea stitch markers, but then, I want a flamingo oriface hook, too. If I don't win, I will have to buy. You are cruel;--)

EJ said...

Love the penguins - they're just too cute.

I don't exactly know what you do with an orifice hook, but it sure does look nice.

The Hot Pepper stitch markers, I love them since I'm such a "hot" old lady...yeah right! Seriously they are way to cute!

purple-power said...

The peas are too cute to be true. I decided a while ago that I had too many stitch markers and didn't need any more. These might be the exception.


My Rav id is: purple

beltwayspinner said...

OMG The Cuteness! Anyone who sculpts miniature food and puts eyes on it, is a very clever crafter. But when you make it useful, you are a creative genius! Peas are my fave veggie and now my fave stitch markers. And the Orifice Hook with a sheep? ADORABLE!

Melissa said...

I absolutely adore the stitch markers! The lobsters are my favorite! I was lucky enough to receive the sheep stitch marker in my march box and know where to go for adorable gifts this year! Fabulous job yarndemon!

I thought the sheep stitch marker I got in my PhatFiber box was the cutest thing ever but--ohmigod--those lobsters and penguins are just hysterical!! I think it's the eyes! And did you see the crocheted chocolate chip cookie covered tape measure? If I had that around, I'd be hungry all day!

She rocks, that's all there is to say... As for the spinning wheel orfice- FANTASTIC! She is very talented.I can't do anything with clay except make the color brown. I adore her little lobster stitch markers (grammy who taught me to knit is from Boston).

Great work!

Remeinds me to start working on my blog...

Robin said...

I LOVE all of Anita's creations. Having the name Robin - it wasn't hard to decide which ones to order first! I love my set of stitch markers containing a robin and her nests!!!

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

I'm having trouble picking just one! I think I might have to go with the stitch markers. They are so cute.

Ter - N. MI said...

The cutest stitch markers ever, the Robin and eggs in the nest are my faves. Will probably buy some even if I don't win them!

Oh my, I love Anita's shop. There is a problem though...she's turned me into a stitch marker addict! I never thought stitch markers could be so adorable and there are too many I want. Congratulations!

Everything is so cute! I *think* my fav is the flip flops. They make me think of summer time but the robin w/her little nests of eggs is super cute too!

insanknitty said...

Anita's shop is the best.. she's my go-to gal for swap gifts, or just things I need. My favorites are the lobsters she made for me when she had me as a swap partner once! :-)

rebelhousewife said...

I think it is a toss up between the bunnies and carrots stitch markers and the chicken ones. Great stuff.

They're all very cute, but I adore the penguins!

Susan said...

I was one of the lucky ones to get a sheep stitch marker in my March box and I love it! But, being a Bostonian, I really think I need the Set of 4 LOBSTERS Knitting or Crochet Stitch Markers! Love all of her stuff, though!

Gina said...

I really like the stitch markers that are shaped like ribbon candy. That is one of my favorite Christmas-time candies.

She does great work, I also like the mice with cheese markers. Too cute.

Quilting Pansy said...

I said I liked the sweet pea the best, but I ended up ordering a set of the farm animals and a set of the turtles, for crochet! It was hard to choose...:)

I love sooooo many of the stitch markers!

They were all so cute. The barn yard animals and the purse. Hard to pick a favorite and if I had to pick a favorite it would be the purses.
