hold your pot

Update - a winner has been selected - Lisa! Thanks for stopping by - I hope you come back to visit!

Happy Monday everyone! It totally slipped my mind and I didn't get a chance to tell ya'll, so you're in for a surprise treat - Giveaway Day!!! SewMamaSew is once again hosting this super fun event. They have scads of bloggers signed up and all are giving away little hand-made lovelies. It's a great chance to find new blogs to love. Please check them out and let's all support each other! You could win!

If you are visiting - welcome! My name is Marie (also known as MSP) and I like crafts of all sorts and love to share them here. On Mondays, I usually talk about something that is making me feel sunny - sunnymondays are good for the soul.

Today we're talking about pretty potholders. I've been making lots of these for my shop this season and they are so much fun. 



They are great sunnymonday treats, because it's the perfect way to add a pop of color or design to your kitchen without going crazy. They also make great gifts (I may or may not have some stashed away for my own gift-giving. Or for myself.)


Today I'm giving away a set of two of the floral+polkadot design (above and here) to one lucky duck. Just leave me a comment and I'll select a random winner on Friday, December 17th.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck! Have a sunnymonday!
