The Critter Ranch and Giveaway!




Sue from the Critter Ranch is always cooking up creativity in her shop. February, she sent in this gorgeous Llama, Alpaca, linen and bamboo braid based on one o her favorite paintings. It's so delicate and beautiful! If you missed it in your box, there is some listed in her shop right now.

While you're in The Critter Ranch Etsy shop, you might notice a new listing for a "Llama momma" adoption! How cute is that?! You can adopt a pregnant Llama mother and follow her through until her baby is born, getting pictures and during shearing time, 6 oz of raw fleece!

We're giving away 2oz of this beautiful "Cradle" fiber to a lucky commenter! Just visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below, twitter, facebook about the contest and we'll draw for a winner later in the week!

Thank you so much, Sue for sharing your artistry with us!
