My mom rocks.
Mom (a.k.a. Cathy, a.k.a. Grammy) is a fantastic seamstress. Among many other things, she makes adorable animal blankies for her grandkids and for lots of other babies. And she's giving one away to a C. Beth Blog reader.
Because she rocks.
The lucky winner will choose either a hippo or an elephant, and there are various colors to choose from, both "girly" and "boyish" colors.
Here are examples of both blankets. (The back ends of the blankets, not visible here, feature more little paws and cute tails.)
The blankies are made of super-soft "minkee" fabric, perfect for cuddling up with, and are guaranteed to help your child sleep peacefully within 30 seconds. (Okay, that last bit might be more of a fantasy than a guarantee.)
Here are the rules:
- To enter, just leave a comment here. Any comment will do, but in my neverending quest to be entertained by you, I invite you to write a short, rhyming poem, if you're feeling creative.
- Encourage your friends, family, blog readers, etc. to enter this contest. In their entry, they need to let me know that you referred them...and if they win, you'll each get a blankie!
- I'll announce the winner (chosen randomly) this Saturday (March 28th.) Make sure either you come back to see if you won, or that I have a way to contact you (by linking to your blog, or leaving an e-mail address.)
- Mailing address may be non-U.S., as long as it's somewhere with a reasonable postage rate. (If you're not sure, just enter, and I'll determine if the cost is reasonable if you win. England and Canada are definitely okay.)
