My favorite project from last years’ 12 Days was Darby’s dishmat.
I’ve made one or twelve.
And despite the fact that my sewing machine is currently demon-possessed, I made one for you today.
All you have to do to be in the running to win it is help me spread the word about the upcoming 12 Days of Handmade Christmas Tutorials.
Just post the large button into a blog post….
or post the small button somewhere on your blog
and you may then leave a comment on this post telling me that you obeyed the instructions like a good little girl and I will enter you into the giveaway for the dishmat.
Handmade for you with love (and occasional curses).
Here’s the large button.
Here’s the code for large one (400×369)

And the wee one.
here’s the code for the small one (240×221)

Oh and if you don’t have a blog, just friend me on Facebook and post a link to this post there. Then you can enter the giveaway too.
Speaking of Facebook, I decided to start a Facebook Fan Page. It seemed like a fun thing to try. An easier place to chat it up. And a place to put all the things that don’t make it onto this here blog like links and recipes and cute boots and such. So check it out, become a friend or ‘fan’ as they call it. And let’s chat it up.
FYI, if my sewing machine gets ill right before the 12 Days, I will NOT be a happy crafter.
One more thing!
My friend Julie is giving away a free custom canvas to everyone who sends her a pic by tonight. Hurry!
What a great idea! I love giving handmade gifts. I can’t wait for the Twelve Days. AND your button is super CUTE!
I’ve got you on my side bar!
Looking forward to it! Adding you to my blog right now!
What an adorable dish mat! I added the small button to my sidebar.
speaking of sewing machines,,,does anyone know which one to purchase,, just to start sewing and do small things like throw pillows etc,,Target has a Singer Traditions on sale this week,,would that do,,,thanks for the help.
Oh and as soon as my sweet techno children show me how to do facebook,,,I’ll do the post and fan thing,,,thanks for all your inspiration!
I’ve added you to the tip top of my sidebar! I’m SO excited about the series!
I have been looking forward this! I’ve added your pretty, little button to my blog. Can’t wait!
Sarah Erwin says
Adding your button to my blog right now! 🙂
Sarah Erwin says
Okay, so I will add your link on facebook instead, since I am not great with adding things to my blog…and it’s not working. Ugh! But I am not lying…promise…check out my fb!!
I don’t have a blog, but I c&p’d that address to my Facebook page and requested your friendship. Only the addy showed up on my facebook page, but not the button itself. I must have done something wrong.
I just asked my teenage daughter what I was doing wrong. She knew, and now it looks correct. Yay for teenagers. 🙂
I am a follower (that just sounds weird though) and I liked you via Facebook…. but like others here I think I may have messed something up!! JoAnn
I liked your Fan Page on Facebook and included a link to 12 days of handmade Christmas on my wall! Can’t wait!!!
Julie Magallanes says
I added you as a friend on FB, liked your fan page, and posted a link to ur blog on MY fb page…whew, is that enough to enter??? 😉
Lori H says
I don’t have a blog so I sent you a friend request on FB. Don’t have a clue how to post a link to your 12 Days on FB but maybe I can figure it out. Looking forward to all 12 days!
I posted, but right now blogger isn’t uploading images, so the button doesn’t seem to be showing up. Hopefully once they come back online it will!
I did a little ditty on your 12 days of Christmas! Looking forward to the new projects.
Southern Gal says
I added the button to my sidebar, but Blogger isn’t cooperating right now. I hope it will show up when Blogger is back up and running.
P.S. I didn’t get to stay for the concert, but totally heard the Avett Brothers rehearsing while at the fair today. Had to leave right before the concert started. 🙁 Thought of you and Amy.
Heather's Hodgepodge says
I posted your button on my blog. Hopefully after Blogger does it’s maintenance it will show up!
I added your button to my sidebar. Not sure if the link was buggy when I initially tried it but I ended up having to get the link from flickr for it to actually work. 🙂
Oh, and just wanted to let you know that I tried out your Chicken and Dumplings recipe tonight. Its been one I’d been thinking about trying for the last couple of weeks, and with tonight’s rainy fall weather, it was perfect. Thanks for sharing!
Carla Clements says
I do not have a blog but I added your page to my likes and sent a friend request and posted your link on my fb page. I love your dishmat. It is super cute! I can’t wait to make one for my daughters and myself.
Amber Kalb says
I added your link on my Facebook…thanks and have a blessed day !
I posted the link from my fb page b/c I can’t seem to get it to work on my blog 🙁 but that’s ok b/c I know I have more fb friends than blog followers! ha! 🙂 looking forward to all the handmade craftiness!!
Lauren Neaves says
I tried adding the small button on my sidebar, but it wouldn’t load. I put the larger one in a post and I am hoping it will eventually show up. Can’t wait to see the new projects!!
Proudly displaying your small button on my sidebar! 🙂
I’m having image issues too… with blogger that is! But I’ve posted about your 12 days and posted a link on my side bar – fun! And I could really use that dishmat in my new home’s kitchen!
I have obeyed like a good girl and put the link on my sidebar, but it isn’t currently working. I’m trying to fix it.
I am soooo looking forward to the 12 days again!
I added the button! Thanks!!
Sarah M says
Are you sure you want all these crazy Facebook friends?
Sarah M says
Oh, and yes I put a link on my FB page like a good girl!!!
Tried to add your button to my sidebar — hoping the picture will show up as well!! Can’t wait to see the crafty goodness 🙂
I tried to add the link on my sidebar, but i’m too stupid to figure it out. Instead of working, I’ll figure out how to do that in the morning. In the meantime, on Facebook I friended, fanned, linked – not sure exactly what I did, but tried to do it all. I do know that FB link was successful. 🙂 Sooo looking forward to the 12 Days!
Can’t wait for this! Don’t have a blog but I shared it on FB.
Hi Edie!!! I love, love,love your HANDMADE dishtowel. I would love to have it! Please enter me into your contest as I don’t have a blog yet. I was just recently able to get my grandma’s sewing machine (which is green and lovely) and all her sewing goodies. I am so excited to get going and your dishtowel would be a great inspiration!! Thanks :}

Julia in West Des Moines says
I have a blog post http://wanderingknits.blogspot.com/2010/10/12-days-of-handmade-christmas.html
but the hyperlink does not work and the button is not visible. I put a link to lifeingraceblog.com
Julia in West Des Moines says
I attempted the button at my blog. the hyperlink does not work and the button is not visible. i did hyperlink your name to lifeingraceblog.
Posted on the blog and my facebook page. Does that qualify me for two entries? Just kidding! Can’t wait for the ideas!
I added you to my sidebar! Looking forward to following along!
kimberly donnelly says
ok, my blog is: http://womenoffour13.blogspot.com and i gave you your very own post and link back to your blog, since i couldn’t get your button to work…hope that’s ok!
Edie- I almost missed this because I’m buried in canvases over here, but I’m adding the button!
Just posted! Looking forward to 11/1!
I wrote a blog post, here’s the link. Thanks for the chance to win!
Edie what a wonderful giveaway! I’m so excited about the 12 days of Christmas! I just friended you on facebook, sadly no blog to assist with promotions
jodi @ back40life says
popped your button in a post…can’t wait!
I followed your party last year and I’m looking forward to see all the homemade goodies this year too. I posted about it on my blog but for some reason the button is not showing up. Do you know why that may be? Thanks.. Hope I win, I’ve been wanting to make one and hadnt gotten around to it.
I posted about it, but the button is not working for me right now for some reason.
I can’t wait to see what ideas you’ve found this year!
I posted it in my sidebar. I am very excited about the tutorials! November 1 seems to far away 🙂
Blessings and Happy Weekend!
done! Can’t wait!
katy b says
I’d love to have one of the dishtowels…lovely! Well, Edie ..tried adding the small button to my sidebar and it just won’t happen, I’ll try again tomorrow. 🙂
Hey girl just wanted to let you know I posted a comment about your homemade christmas!!! Hope I win the dish mat!!!
Jessica Washburn says
I have so much catching up to do in blogland. I still haven’t tried many of the tutorials from your last years 12 Days…just need some spare time. The camera straps, pillows, flower pins and dish mats have been on my list for a long time….must get to work!
Thanks for the contest!
Joanie Allen says
I did it! I posted your button on my FB page successfully! Yippee!!!
Janan Jones says
I can’t wait for this series to start! I posted about it!!
Elyse Corbitt says
Posted about you!
I posted your button on my sidebar, but it hasn’t been working. I’m just now getting a chance to sit down and see if I can get it up and running. Hopefully, I can figure it out. 🙂
For those of you having trouble getting the pic to load… click on the picture to take you to Edie’s flickr photo. This, click Share This (above the photo) and get the html code from flickr. This is what I had to do for the image to show on blogger.
Oh yeah… and to link to Edie’s blog instead of to the flickr pic, change the first web address to https://www.lifeingraceblog.com instead of the direct photo web link. HTH!
I’m a fan on fb and posted the 12 days on your site
