Greetings to all you beautiful people! If you are new, I welcome you to what will hopefully be a lasting bond. If you've frequented my page and/or my social media before, welcome back! Regardless when or how you got here, thank you for all your support! While I may not be a "huge success" compared to others, I feel just as honored. To show my appreciation, I've decided to share some love by giving back!
You have no idea how difficult is was to keep this secret under wraps, but now that it's May I can finally type it out loud! I'm hosting my very first giveaway! An amazingly generous man by the name of Anthony Green, who is the founder and director of a yarn company, has opted to help me with this opportunity, by providing the gorgeous prize! For all you fellow arts and craft fanatics, knitters, and crochet lovers, I present to you the "Three Bears Yarn" giveaway!!! 

This wonderful Lancashire, England based company has been in production since 1915! They are an honest, passionate, and creative company that holds pride in providing quality, 100% cotton yarn. (They've recently released 7 new, flawless, 100% DK Acrylic yarn in colors that would light up anyone's yarn collection! Check them out HERE.) I can truly attest to their kindness and the beauty of their yarn. They graciously sent me the yarn to photograph and pack for the future winner. The color's are vibrant, the yarn is strong and soft, and the overall company, "Three Bears Yarn", is worth praise! 

"Three Bears Yarn" offers a variety of beautiful products in breathtaking colors. They also sell packs - including starter packs, bear packs, fairy-tale packs, and a pack that holds near and dear to my heart, the Stray Dogs Charity Pack. All of which are extremely well priced! You won't believe just how much yarn you can get for how little!

The Stray Dogs Charity Pack, is filled with stunning yarn that allows you to create 4 sensational puppies: Buddy, Dudley, Sophie, and Toby. These puppies aren't just heart-warming, but they represent a wonderful cause. With every purchase of the Stray Dogs Charity Pack, "Three Bears Yarn" gives 20% of sales on a monthly basis to: "The Hyndburn Stray Dogs In Need". The HSDiN is a charity located in Lancashire, England that started in 1999. They are a registered charity that believes in re-homing and saving as many unwanted, abandoned dogs as they can. Their mission statement is "giving stray and homeless dogs a second chance".  HSDiN provide stray and homeless dogs with veterinary care, vaccines, de-worming treatment, a microchip, and are strayed/neutered, before being given to their forever home. 
This particular cause is near and dear to my heart, because my precious fur baby (RIP Kerena), was a stray dog. She was given a chance by the local shelter here in California. If it wasn't for the help of donations, she wouldn't have lived to see another day. Thanks to all those kind, loving people and their generous donations, I was granted the chance to have her in my life for almost 10 years. She was a kind, loving, friendly, and supportive companion. By purchasing the Stray Dogs Charity Pack through "Three Bears Yarn", you'll be helping HSDiN give dogs a chance to make another little girl or boy happy. You'll be helping to make a life long dream - and companion - while receiving an fantastic package of 4 "cute as a button" dogs. 
Because these are such spectacular products AND due to the amazing love from "Three Bears Yarn", I'm happy to announce that the awesome Stray Dogs Charity Pack WILL be one of the prizes in the giveaway! The other prize is a pack of 12 spectacular yarn balls! The softness and colors aren't displayed with honor, as well as they should be, in the pictures I've provided. I'm telling you, they are even more breathtaking in person. The 12 incredible pastel colored balls of yarn, are 50g/225m of 100% 4 Ply Cotton, which includes 2 purple, 2 green, 2 yellow, 2 peach, 1 pink, 1 white, 1 blue, and 1 cream colored balls of yarn. The Charity Pack yarn is 50g/85m of 100% Aran Cotton, which includes 2 black, 4 white, 2 cream, 4 brown, and 2 ginger colored balls of yarn.  This entire giveaway will provide with enough yarn for 4 cuddly dog friends (perfect for a child's present, bedtime snuggle buddies, or just because dogs are awesome), and any other impressive craft you'd like to create!
