Here's what I found for the give-away, a few little things that make the place where I grew-up special. Some yarn from a local yarn shop (enough to make one cuddly toy), a bar of evergreen scented soap (for the evergreen forests that cover the mountains), a bar of chocolate from a local chocolaterie, a wind-up toy swimmer (because I love swimming in the local lake), a lavender sachet I sewed by hand with fabric scraps from my grandma's stash, and a little notebook covered with some of my favourite local wildflowers. I kinda wish I was keeping it all for myself! I will draw a name tomorrow morning, since I can't send it right away (I only made the notebook today, and it's still damp). I've also got three postcards, and I'll draw three extra names for those. Not much of a prize, but it's always nice to get a little note in the mail!
