Miracle Hamster Pincushions and a Blog Giveaway

I thought I will take the time to introduce you to miracle hamster pincushions.

Everybody with a thread and needle can make a pincushion, but it takes a special kinda artist to see into the heart of a hamster and absorb this gentle creature's love for textile arts - and I am indeed that kind of special person.

First of all, know that when using a miracle hamster pincushion you will no longer have to deal alone with problems arising during the creative process. Can't find the right color thread? Having trouble hooking your sewing machine? Your hamster is there to help and offer valuable advice.

Benson the miracle hamster pincushion

You don't HAVE to use them as a pincushion. If you cannot stand the thought of that, just play with them or use them for decoration. Though I have to tell you - acupuncture is good for your health, and hamsters are no different in that aspect.

And now - for October's blog giveaway!!! Since not everybody sew, I am giving away a chubby pink hamster magnet (as well as a nice promo goody bag).

How to win your very own hamster magnet:
  1. Comment on this thread along with your email address, so I can contact you if you win.
  2. Follow this blog, if you don't already (there is a Follow button lower on the left).
  3. For an extra entry - Follow me on Twitter too. DM me so I know to count you twice on the giveaway.
That's it. On October 15th I'll have a raffle and let you know who won, so stay tuned.
