Happy Friday

I’m off helping a friend move this weekend, folks, so this is an unexciting post. Remember, though, that today is your last day to enter the mini-tree giveaway!

Have a good weekend, and we’ll announce our winner on Monday!

It’s almost Caturday!


On Friday, this blog reached 10,000 views! Awesome!

Small elephant says, “HURRAY!”

So, as a little celebratory thank-you gift to you, my dear readers, I want to offer… a GIVE-AWAY!

You may not know, but I am a maker of small things. Do you like small things? Do you like trees? Would you like to win a VERY SMALL TREE??

Why yes, I’m about the same size as a quarter.

If you want a tiny wire tree all your own (or something else — I make larger small trees, small fairy dolls, jewelry, and drawings of stick figures — if you win, we’ll talk), all you have to do is link back to this blog via your own blog, Facebook, or Twitter, and show me in the comments that you did so!

So, let’s review:

1. You can win a Kristin-made craft, most likely a teeny, customized tree!

2. To enter the contest, link back to my blog via your blog, Facebook, or Twitter, and leave a link to your share in my comments. If you share in multiple places, you get multiple entries!

3. At the end of the week, I’ll put all the entries in a hat, and my husband will pick a name! Friday will be the last day to get your name in the hat.

4. As a bonus, if you FOLLOW this blog with EMAIL UPDATES this week, I’ll put your name in THREE ADDITIONAL TIMES.

I have the best readers on the internet. Seriously, you guys are awesome. Thank you for helping me stay afloat all this time.

Friday the 13th…

Cue the dramatic music, folks. It’s Friday the 13th.

What’s the big deal about this day, anyway? Even the internet can’t produce a clear origin for the myth, except to say that Friday has been thought of as an ill-omened day and 13 as an unlucky number… add the two together, and you create DOOMSDAY.

Or something.

I’m curious, though: anyone out there stay in on Friday(s) the 13th? Anyone ever have anything bad or creepy happen to them on Friday the 13th? Do you have any tales of terror and woe to share?
