Chances are if you're reading this you already know all about Duck Fest. For my readers that don't here is a recap!
What is Duck Fest?
Duck Fest is a blog party fundraising event to raise money for the JD Scholarship Fund. It runs June 3 - 8 right here in the blogosphere!Duck Fest is supporting our fellow blog bud, Daffy. She is setting up the JD Scholarship Fund in honor of her sister, Wendy. JD is Daffy's 5 year old nephew who just lost his mother suddenly, last week. Every parent strives to give the best to their child and as a single father, sending JD to college will be difficult.
How does Duck Fest work?
By using the McLinky at the bottom of this page, you are able to visit a number of giveaways to raise money for the JD Scholarship Fund. If you find a giveaway you'd like to enter, beginning June 3, you can click on the donate button on that giveaway and donate money for entries. Each entry is $1.00. If you donate $10.00 you have 10 entries to spend however you want. Please follow the PayPal directions for your donation (be sure to leave your blog url in notes for verification!). Leave a comment for each $1.00 donation on the giveaways of your choice! On June 9, each hosting blog will select their winners using random.org.
One of my FAVORITE things to do is crochet! I actually found crocheting just by chance. But it has become a love of mine. My favorite things to crochet are baby afghans. (Especially for little girls)! For Duck Fest I will be crocheting one of my "Sweetheart" baby afghans in the color of your choice! It can be made in a variety of colors. (It does NOT have to be a pastel color, I am only limited by my yarn). AND as an added incentive, I will also be crocheting the name of your choice in your blanket! (Since my blanket donation will be custom made, I will need 4-6 weeks to complete the winners blanket)!
Here are some samples of my work!
These blankets work well for babies or little girls and boys.
I have never sold one of my blankets. They have always been reserved for the ones nearest and dearest to my heart. It's hard to put a price tag on something that is a piece of yourself. This is my little contribution to a wonderful cause.
In the comments section please leave your email address if it's not listed on your profile. Hit that follow button on my side bar. I will contract the winner to get colors and name for the blanket if your name is drawn.
We are using random.org to draw winnners. Please leave one comment per $1.00 donation. If you put in $5.00 leave five comments. Good luck!
