**Update: Erin is running a giveaway right now! Go here to leave a comment by noon FRIDAY and be entered in the drawing to win!**

Guys! I won a drawing over at Good Morning Grumpy, which you should obviously check out if you haven't. These are the lovely handmade goods the talented Miss Erin (whose prowess you may remember from earlier) sent:

A pillow sham that matches my living room perfectly

Adorable floral-themed magnets in a little tin

I didn't have any pillows lying around, but I was pretty proud of myself for buying a pillowcase at Savers for $0.99 and turning it into an (albeit slightly asymmetrical and lumpy) throw pillow in about 10 minutes with two quick seams and the last of the leftover dummy stuffing. I seriously love the sham. She has more for sale over at her Etsy store!

Should I do a craft giveaway here at the Kitchen? I probably should, since I love it so much when other people do them. But, then, there are so many other things I should also probably do (including updating the book blog, on which I am currently four reviews behind: Pattern Recognition, If On a Winter's Night a Traveler, Jitterbug Perfume, and Half the Sky)--and, of course, writing that pesky dissertation.

In the meantime, thanks again, Erin!

Thanks for the shout out! Glad you're enjoying your stuff. With all the traffic you're sending my way with the links, I'm newly motivated to update my blog. It's been a busy couple weeks.

Aww, those magnets are cute! I need to rethink my couch pillows. They're just old pillows with homemade covers, but I'm tired of the pattern/colors. I need a living room revamp as well as a wardrobe revamp.

Erin, I seriously adore the pillow! I look at it and think about how perfect it is.

And Leah, aren't they great? And I wish you both could come see my fabric warehouse (about which I still haven't blogged... oops...); it's all sorts of revamp inspiration!
