Happy Haulidays Giveaway

It's no secret that I love craft books.


Well, Chronicle Books is having a huge contest where you can enter to win $500 worth of books! Bloggers can blog about their wish list (mine are all crafty books, of course), and everyone else can enter to win just by commenting on that post. So, you should blog your own list or comment on this post to win. Brilliant contest idea.

  1. Cake Pops

  3. Pattern Making
  4. Stencil 201
  5. The Liberty Book of Home Sewing
  6. Fashion Design Third Edition
  7. World of Geekcraft
  8. Amy Butler's Style Stitches
  9. Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones
  10. Lotta Jansdotter Stencil
  11. Applique Your Way
  12. Handmade Hellos: Fresh Greeting Card Projects from First-Rate Crafters
  13. Lotta Prints: How to Print With Anything, From Potatoes to Linoleum
