I can't believe that it has been a year since I started blogging. I started the end of Dec. a year ago. I've been trying to think of what I could make that would be special for my first anniversary. I started looking through all of my patterns and found this one that I have had for many years and always wanted to make and never did. So here is what I came up with. I named her Emma and she measures almost 17" from head to toe. She is holding a love heart that is 5" tall. She needs a good home. The bench is not included.
Here's what you have to do to enter the giveaway.
1. You must be a follower and leave a comment. New followers are welcome but please leave an address in your comment so I know how to contact you  if you should win.
2. For another entry you must post on your sidebar.
3. For a third chance you must write a post about me and my giveaway.
4. For a fourth chance you must like Ginger Creme Hollow on Facebook.
Good luck to everyone. I will pick the winner on Jan. 20, 2012.
