blogiversary + giveaway.

whoops: i realized last week that i missed my first "blogiversary" - a spot of whimsy has been in existence for [over] one year!  cue the mini-celebration in my head:

{1, 2, 3}

annnnnd i'm back.  but not quite done.  as a token of my appreciation for my readers, and to further one of the reasons i started blogging in the first place - to share my inspiring (and frequently whimsical) findings, often in the form of etsy sellers and other independents doing amazingly creative stuff - i am offering a giveaway from knitstorm: your very own personalized tea (or coffee!) cozy!  kate's adorable knit creations were one of the first etsy items i ever featured here, and it's popped up in pictures of my apartment countless times since, so i thought this was quite fitting. 

if you are selected as the winner, you'll be able to personalize the below cozy with up to 2 words embroidered onto a tea bag shape w/string, or just a rectangular patch if you're a coffee/cocoa/something-equally-yummy drinker.  kate was even nice enough to offer to embroider a heart or add a red felt one, like below.  

how to enter:
become a follower of a spot of whimsy and tell me whether you are a coffee or tea drinker (or neither!) in the comments. 
i have somehow morphed into both, as i am not a morning person!
include your email address so i can notify the winner and put you in touch with kate.
  if you are already a follower, then just comment to tell me that!

for extra entries:
1.  tweet about the giveaway
include my twitter - @aspotofwhimsy- and knitstorm's - @knitstorm - in the tweet!
then leave another comment right here telling me you did.
2.  "like" knitstorm's facebook page!
then comment one more time to tell me that.

aren't kate's creations just so fun and... uh... cozy?!

entries close this sunday, may 1, 2011 at 5 p.m. central time.  winner will be selected through a random number generator and will be notified on monday, may 2! 

good luck!  and be sure to check out the rest of knitstorm's cozy creations on etsy, twitter and facebook.

*i'm not receiving anything for hosting this giveaway.  i contacted knitstorm and kate was gracious enough to donate one of her cozies to this giveaway.


  1. OOh, love these! I am a definate tea drinker and rarely drink coffee. I am already a follower. :-)

  2. I'm a followerrrrrr obviously. And I love these all. So much. And I drink both coffee and tea. I tried weaning myself off coffee and that didn't work out very well...

  4. I'm a follower, and I like Knitstorm on Facebook! These are absolutely precious!

  5. Already a follower :) Tea drinker all the way. I loved one of your previous posts about your Knitstorm tea cozy so much that I ordered them for all of my best friends (and myself) for Christmas last year. Everyone loved them!

  6. these are TOO cute!! happy bloggy birthday! i follow through GFC. laviejaime { at} and i am mostly a coffee drinker- every morning, must have!

  9. Congrats on your one year anniversary!! I'm not sure if I've ever celebrated my blog anniversaries, but I may borrow your pictures for celebrating idea if I ever do!

  10. i have liked knitstorm on facebook for several months now! i love these cozies!

  11. I'm already a follower of your blog - it's so fun! I'm a coffee drinker, the day hasn't started without coffee in my opinion!

  12. Definitely a coffee drinker! I remember this from your old banner! I love that first design though, but if it said "coffee" instead!

  13. Coffee, tea, chai - anything that will allow me to "do stupid things faster and with more energy" LOL New follower and LOVE it already :o)

  14. I'm a coffee drinker, and have been telling myself I should knit a reusable coffee cup cozy for about three years. Haven't gotten around to it yet, possibly because I'm destined to win this giveaway!

  15. I LOVE coffee, but i also drink tea a lot. I find both to be very versatile as far as how you can make them to your own taste! :)

  16. happy blogiversasry! as for coffee or tea, definitely both! i typically have coffee in the morning, tea with caffeine during the day, and decaffeinated tea at night. whew that's a lot! needless to say, this cute cozy would be perfect for a hot-beverage-aholic such as myself :)

  17. i'm also now knitstorm's 338th facebook fan!
    p.s. i forgot to include my email in my last entry - it's kait.prettythings(at)gmail(dot)com :)
