About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Giveaways are always fun to see on a blog. Of course, they’re really fun if you win because then you get new stuff. But even if you don’t win a giveaway can introduce you to new yarn, crochet books and other crochet-related things. People always spread the word about giveaways so they help bring more attention to crochet blogs. And the giveaways are often of other people’s things, like crochet designers’ patterns, so they show support of those people in our community. That’s worth recognizing!
Why the Winning Blog Won
A Creative Being won the giveways award this year for a lot of reasons. First of all, this blog just had A LOT of giveaways this year and I love seeing that. I also liked the variety of items that were offered for giveaway, including yarn, crochet books, crochet patterns and more. She often supplements the giveaway with a review of the product. The products look to be high quality and unique. I also like that the blogger always does a second post announcing the winner(s); I know from my own blog that it’s time consuming to do that but it’s nice because it really recognizes the people who took the time to participate in the giveaway.
This Blog Previously Won …
I really enjoy a lot of different things on this blog so it’s not surprising that it’s won one of my crochet blog awards in the past. It was the winner of the 2012 Awesome Crochet Blog Award for Best Crochet Blog Project for the mandala series of posts.
Also About this Crochet Blog
I love the creative mandala designs from this blogger and I also love the blog’s giveaways but that’s not all that I love on this blog. I love her photo-rich tutorials. I love that she shares information about other things going in the world of crochet, like recently sharing about the Cambodia Knits Kickstarter that I also shared in support of fair trade crochet. And I just like reading about her experiences and the things that she’s doing and making.
Special Thanks to the Blogger
Although it didn’t affect my choice of award winner in any way I just wanted to say special thanks again for sharing Crochet Saved My Life (which she shared her story in) and Hook to Heal on this blog.
