Hey everyone! First let me wish everyone a very happy and prosperous new year. Lord knows we all are going to need that in this year. Everyday, I talk to more and more people that have been laid off or that have lost some of their livelihoods due to this economic crunch. But we cannot let this get us down. So to start off the new year on a good foot, I have decided to hold a Valentines Day contest. I have been so tickled about all the new friends I have made this past year, that I decided to have a contest for Valentines 2009.  

I do tend to go a bit crazy with the yarny goodies during the cold winter months, but I feel that I have outdone myself on this prize and I want to share it with all my new friends.  

This beautiful accessory is so soft, yummy, and beautiful, that you will want to wear it with everything. Very cozy, I tried chenile yarn for the first time by crocheting an open weave look poncho, and this yummy yarn crocheted up with a velvety goodness that is like whipped butter. I edged the poncho with fluffy eyelash yarn to give it some glam and viola, this cutie beauty was born? hatched? created, yeah, that is it, created. This glam and cozy poncho is true red, the red of Valentines Day hearts and is assuredly brand new. I only put the poncho on to model it for the pictures. I am 6 foot tall to give you an idea of the length. Dimensions are 38 inches long and approximately 42 inches wide. Here are some pictures.

The contest should be a lot of fun and you can enter as many times as you want. I am running this contest on my MySpace site but any one can enter in any way you can send me a picture.  

All you gotta do is send me the best or most original body sign or fan sign directed towards me or any of my jewelry pieces via comments.

My MySpace site is and you can comment any one of the pictures I have posted there,(of course you would have to be a member of MySpace and also be one of my friends there as well. That is why you will be able to enter my contest, via the next two choices.), comment my Fab40 page, or email me at  

Do not know what a fan sign or body sign is?
Here is what you do: First draw or make a fan sign for me,either on your body, (most people do their hands arms, sometimes their chests or their belly. These are but a few examples. For another example go hereor on a piece of paper.
Take a picture of yourself showing your fan sign for me.
Then simply email your photo to me or comment any of my pictures on MySpace with your photo, or comment me here with your photo.  

This contest will start on January 2nd, 2009 and end on Valentines Day 2009. I will notify the winner via email or thru the venue in which they posted their comment to me and will at that time require the winner’s address so that I can ship their prize to them. No private information given, either expressly or by chance, will be shared with or sold to anyone else. Your privacy will be upheld to the highest extent.  

Until the 2nd, be thinking of and working on your most creative body sign or fan sign pic. Please keep it in good taste. The winner will receive the beautiful red poncho and maybe even another goodie or two, I make and get goodies all the time. I will also top friend the winner until my next contest(if you are a friend on MySpace of course.) I will also blog you on Fab40. I will also need your permission to use your photos on my MySpace site and my other web site [Link Removed] I will assume that if you post pictures on any of the above mentioned sites, that you give me your permission to use your photos. If not then perhaps do not enter the contest. My husband and I will be judging this contest. He is my biggest fan and is the perfect person to judge this contest I think.  

I hope that the winner will be kind enough to send me some pictures of themselves wearing their prize as well.  

This contest will give me a chance to get to know my new friends and potential customers. How else could I treat you special, if I do not know anything about you. This contest will also give you a chance to be creative and perhaps get your creative juices flowing for 2009. I will also get a chance to see other creative souls out there. This poncho would make a perfect gift for your special someone, so guys don’t be shy, show your love and have a good time.

Please note: This contest is open to anyone in the United States and its territories only.  

I hope to get a lot of participation on this contest so please pass it to everyone you know because any friend of my friends are my friends too.
Please let me know if you cannot get to any of the links or if you have any questions at all.
Happy New Year, have a good time with this and see you after the first.
