    Dear Favcrafts:

    I am so excited about this contest, since I am such a big fan of your crafts! Each day I check my e mail to see the new projects you have in store for me. Over the past two years I have made so many of your projects. Each year I display the crocheted snowmen family, on my living room table. I’ve gotten so many compliments on them. I even made one for my mother-in-law. In my kitchen: the soap apron on my counter so cheery in orange and the tea pot cozy!
    In November I made myself the chunky neckwarmer in gray, I wear it over a black leather jacket. It looks so smart! Since I like to make my own gifts, my husband suggested I make all the women on my list neckwarmers. I made six chunky neck warmers for Christmas presents in a variety of the recipients favorite colors: red, green, black, white and blue. I sent some to family as far as New York, I live in Michigan. Everyone absolutely loved them! I’m still getting complaints.
    I’ve started a scrapbook of favcrafts for projects I’d like to make in the future. As a full time crafter, thank you for all the joy you’ve given me.
    Marcy Rosenberg Starnes

    Crafts have been my world since I was a child. As a child, I learned to sew from middle school, learned to crochet watching Mama, learned to quilt from a elderly co-worker & learned to knit watching online videos. My favorite craft, knitting, has brought joy to my life when I needed comfort, learned to give handmade gifts to those in need & has kept my dogs warm in sub-zero weather. I’ve never won anything in my life (not even at Bingo!), so I hope I can win this awesome giveaway & continue to make more items to give as gifts. Maybe one day, I’ll make something for myself (I’ve only made a pair of fingerless mitts–that’s all!).
