I started my craft blog about 18 days ago... When I started it, I kinda expected no one to look at it, but so far I have had just under 1100 views... EXCITING! It's fun to think that friends, family, and people I don't even know are looking at the things I make and ideas I have. One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is look at craft blogs so it is kinda fun starting up my own with hopes of inspiring someone to make something or try something new- like so many blogs have inspired me to do. 

I thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway to celebrate this blog having 1000 views (not much I know, but it's cool to me at least:) 
So I made a hair accessory to give away... I am kinda digging feathers lately- especially peacock feathers so I fashioned a little feather bling for your hair! 

Anyone can enter my contest/ giveaway!!!

Here are the rules:

1. Become a follower of Mommy by day... Crafter by night.

2. Leave a comment telling me that you are a follower and why you should win this feathery hair thing to compliment your hairdo! 

3. You have to live in the U.S. 
(I have had some views from a couple different countries which is super cool, but due to prices of sending things I better keep it to the U.S. for this contest :)

That's it! 

The contest will end in one week on Friday July 1st, 2011- So make sure you enter this week and I will announce the WINNER on this blog next weekend and then I will put the prize in the mail and get it to the winner!
