I am participating in this year's One World One heart blog giveaway. Leave a comment on this post (and this post only) for a chance to win the handmade(by me) pincushion above before Feb. 12. Giveaways are happening all over- there are already over 600 participants from all over the world. The only requirement to enter is that you have a blog and you can leave a comment on as many as you like! Click on the One world one heart logo above to see the list of participants or go to www.oneworldoneheart.typepad.com. By the way, the pincushion measures 4"x2" and is made of hand dyed wool. Good luck!

Finally through with Christmas, retail has been dismal. We have spent alot of time joining various market venues online and are really excited about them. We have been on etsy for some time now and have recently joined lollishops, artfire, and 1000markets. They are recent startups so time will tell. I am especially thrilled by 1000markets www.1000markets.com , in particular the 'market' we are in,The Village www.1000markets.com/groups/village . The whole site is beautifully laid out and easy to navigate. About the photo, this is our shop here in Minnesota. Needless to say this was taken in July. Nice to look at now while it is -20 degrees outside.
