I've decided to take the plunge and do my own blog giveaway. I will admit that giveaway's that I've participated in (including a lucky win for me) have given me the bug and I'm excited to do one of my own. The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive Minzhe the panda, who told me he is eager to be adopted and just doesn't want to wait around any longer! Minzhe (3.75") is hand sewn out of two different imported synthetics with sweet little guard hairs. He is five way jointed, has glass eyes, ultrasuede foot pads and inner ears and a hand-stitched pearl cotton nose. He will come with his sewn in little leaf and a certificate stating his is a OOAK creation by Shanna Hiniker of Little Leaf Bears. If you would like to see more photos of Minzhe, he will be posted under my Bearpile account, listed as adopted (

The drawing for Minzhe will be held on November 7th and here is what you do to enter.

1. Become a follower of my blog and post a comment letting me know you would like to enter.

2. For an extra entry post a link to this giveaway on your own blog or website and leave a comment letting me know where it's at.

That's it, pretty simple. Entries will be accepted until midnight (central time in the US) on November 6th. The winner will be announced on this blog and will have 3 days to e-mail me to claim their prize! I'm so excited!!! Good luck everyone!!

Laurie received her swap bear

I just got a message from Laurie that her swap bear arrived. I named him Simon and now that she has him, and no surprise will be spoiled I can show you photos. Simon's little bunny was my first attempt at designing in needle felting and only my second ever needle felted critter. I hope you like Simon, I had a great time making him and a hard time saying goodbye!
