Endeavour Toys GIVEAWAY [OVER]

This giveaway is OVER. Congrats Harley! You have won your choice of WoolPet from Endeavour Toys! Thanks to all you other folks who pressed your luck! 

Okay. Guys. I have to admit something. I'm so sick of all these other bloggers and people on Pinterest showing me up. They bake the most ridiculous foods, decorate some amazing parties, craft the coolest stuff. AND then take awesome photos of it. Like how? I can barely get dinner on the table at a decent hour. Ramen, again? Sorry I'm not sorry.

Anyineedmorehoursintheday, Endeavour Toys, a toy company that specializes in clever kid things, sent me a WoolPet Needle Felting Kit, one of their best selling crafting kits, to help get my creative juices flowing. Now, this isn't a craft for kids. It's more like a grown-up activity, and then you give the kiddos your finished product. Yea, I just spent all this time creating a tiny, pretend pet for you, so don't destroy it, okay? 

I started on my fox pet, not really knowing what it entailed. These WoolPets come with directions, different shades of wool, a few beads for eyes and noses, and the needles. Yes. Needles. These felting needles are legit. They are probably sharper than any sewing needle I've encountered. I even literally stabbed myself with the thing and bled for an hour straight. I immediately quit for a while because, well, I love and need my fingers. Needless to say, you should probably use a thimble or a concrete glove while doing this.

I'm not going to lie. After I got the hang of needle felting, it was relaxing. My fox started looking like a bear-monkey mutant, but I didn't care. I was creating something again. And I felt good about it. It was also fun that Adrienne was watching me with amazement. She also kept praising my progress? attempt? work. Plus, these kits are made with all natural materials in the USA, and the box the kit comes in can even be turned into a bird feeder! Win slash win.

My fox turned out to actually look somewhat fox-ish. Sure, his legs could have been skinnier and shorter, but Adrienne loved him and named him Mr. Foxers. There is even enough wool in these kits to have another go round at a Mrs. Foxers in the future.

Now for the GIVEAWAY. I've teamed up with Endeavour Toys to offer one lucky winner their choice of WoolPet! There are some pretty cute little critters to choose from! Like hedgehogs, owls, and kittens, oh my! They even have holiday kits perfect for gift-giving. The winner will also receive a foam pad to make their needle felting life easier.

For your chance to win, just log into the Rafflecopter below (or make a new Rafflecopter account), and follow the directions for each entry. Please make sure to actually do what's required for each entry. If you just click enter and not do what it's asking, I'll know. If you are unsure how to do one, skip it and contact me. I can't stress this enough. I go back and check to make sure the winner actually did what was required. I will not let cheaters win. DON'T CHEAT. Meh.
