Farmgirl Chic Fall Gourds Giveaway!
So, I'm really feeling this crisp air in the morning! Just a couple of weeks ago, we were really suffering here with mid to upper 90 degree weather- boo! Now, I can see my breath when I walk outside at dawn! When the weather is nicer, I think folks are able to think better. For example, this morning while sipping my coffee, I realized how inexpensive a fiber addiction can really be. Why are you laughing? Really, think about it- let's say I can spin 4 oz of fiber in a weekend. If we take fiber from Farmgirlchic, and add up 4 oz of this beautiful fall gourds fiber, that comes out to $16- plus probably $3 shipping so let's say $19. That's under $20. I can't take my husband out to eat for under $20 and that lasts an hour at best. In fact, I can't go to a movie with someone for under $20 - well maybe if I carry a big giant mexican straw purse and smuggle drinks and popcorn in- but how can you feel good about that? In the case of this Fall Gourds Fiber, you'll need to spend a little time prepping it or at least planning how to spin it too. The fiber will encourage you to stay home and spin instead of going to the mall or wherever, to shop too. Also, you'll need to stay home and cook because you can spin a little while the pasta noodles are boiling. $20 for the weekend and you have yarn afterward to make into a gift- which will negate the $20 spent in the first place. I think I'll call in to Dave Ramsey and explain to him how if everyone would just get into fiber crafting, it would help get them out of debt.
While I do that, please visit FarmgirlChic, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for this Fall Gourds Fiber winner on Friday, so be quick like and make sure you retweet/FB/ravelate etc to help Melissa out!
