Corgi Hill Farm and *Giveaway*
I'm sure you all know, that April's theme is "Eco/Green". I'm also sure you know that buying indie helps planet earth too. What- explain? Okay!
Take AnnaMarie, from Corgi Hill Farm for instance. She's bound set and determined to live "off grid" and sustainably in a beautiful farm house, growing her own food and living the simple life. That wasn't always the plan with AnnaMarie. She's a self-proclaimed recovering "shopping diva" who is continually realizing (as chronicled on her blog) that less is more.
So, here is where I can help you justify a delicious, scrumptious, droolicious, squooshable, squishable hank of handspun: By purchasing a skein of AnnaMarie's yarn, you are financially supporting her quest to "power down" which also helps negate your own carbon footprint! You remember those skeins of R** Heart You bought at the dollar store before you realized yarn could be so nummy and soft, and natural? I bet one hank of Corgi Hill Farm handspun just might even your yarn karma out!
Do you know what AnnaMarie did with all of her February samples? She spun them up for you! We're giving away a sampling of AnnaMarie's spinning and they are all composed of "phat" fiber.
All you have to do to win is visit AnnaMarie's shop and find something you like. Post about it here and a winner will be drawn on Monday so you have all weekend to drool over every listing in her shop! Remember, I will count your twittering, plurks, blogposts and facebook updates as second chances- just be sure to let me know you did it, and be sure to leave a way for me to find you when you win.
Thank you so much AnnaMarie, for being a "green" pioneer- we can all learn alot from your journey! We hope you'll continue to contribute your nummy yarn in future boxes!
