Squee Sunday - The Year's First Owl Giveaway!

Which I want to call an "owlaway," for some reason.

Anyway, to the point---being a part of the online-crafty-blogging community through WIP Wednesdays, FO Fridays, and Fibers on Friday (hosted at Tami's Ami's and Visions of Sugarplums, respectively) was definitely a huge highlight of my 2011.  Even when I didn't have time or energy or internet access to be blogging, I had you guys and all of your sweetness (not to mention gorgeous projects) in my mind.  And you've all been so sweet about my flock of owls!  (For whom I will write the pattern/recipe someday.  Someday.)

I want to issue a thank you for all of that warm fuzziness by giving one of you the chance to win the First Owl of 2012---to be made custom for you in colours and configuration of your choice!  You could request tassled ears like the ones on Barnabas up there at the top, or Marilyn, shown below:

Or maybe you'd like a more realistic, ready-to-deliver-your-mail looking owl like Errol or Hedwig:


Or an owl inspired by sky and clouds!
Or a vampirical tinsel-winged owl!

I'm really excited to make a custom owl for one of you!  I've never made one by request before, and my fingers are already itching to go rummage through my stash for the perfect yarns.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this entry.  You also have to promise to take a photo or two of your owl in his or her new home, because I'm nosy like that. ;)

I'll link back to this post on Wednesday and Friday, and next Sunday (January 8th), a random number generator will pick the winner.  Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win!

I hope all of you are already having a good 2012.
