Here’s How You Can Enter

The point of this giveaway (besides giving you a huge prize for being an awesome supporter of my work!) is to spread the word about some of my favorite projects on this blog. That’s why you have loads of entries available to you. Here they all are:

  • Pin Me! I want to make sure people know about all the work I’ve been putting into my 365 Manieren om te dragen haak project so you get one entry for every single picture you pin to Pinterest from any of these posts. I’ve done a post every day so far this year with multiple pictures on each post and you get one entry for every pic you pin this week. You can find all of the posts Hier. There’s also already a board showing one photo from each of those posts so you can repin those if you prefer; the board is Hier.
  • Facebook Shares! I also want to get some attention for my Ontwerper haak Project en mijn Haak kunstenaar profielen. You can share any and all of the posts from these two categories to your Facebook. Nog een keer, you’ll get one entry for every single post that you share.
  • Stumble It! I want more people to be able to find me through StumbleUpon. U kunt me hier vinden and give a Stumble review to any of the posts that you find there on my profile. You get one entry for each post of mine there that you stumble.
  • Tweet Tweet. Tweet any or all of the individual lists on this list of 25 lijsten. Klik enkel op degene die u wilt delen en het gekwetter. One entry for each one that you share.
  • And a G+ Option. Share any of the Haak interviews that I’ve done with your G+ circles. One entry per share.
  • Blog Me. I’ll give 20 additional entries to any bloggers that add my homepage as a link in the blogroll on their blog’s sidebar. I’ll give 15 additional entries to any blogger who does a post of ten reasons to visit Crochet Concupiscence with a link back to the blog. I’ll give 10 additional entries to anyone who blogs about this giveaway this week with a link back to this post.

Make Sure You Follow These Rules

  • Every single item you share should link back to the Crochet Concupiscence post that it comes from regardless of which social site you’re using.
  • Leave me a comment that tells me how many entries you get and a link to your profile so I can double-check the number of entries. Bijvoorbeeld, your comment might say “Ik gespeld 100 foto 's – you can check it at my Pinterest account which is
  • You can leave multiple comments if you do this on multiple days. Bijvoorbeeld, on Monday you might leave a comment saying that you pinned 10 photos and then on Tuesday you can come back and say you pinned eight more. Echter, I don’t require individual comments for each post. You can tell me how many entries you get in the most convenient way for you as long as I can check on it.
  • Entries will be accepted through midnight, Friday April 13th PST. Unfortunately due to the size of the winning package I can’t accept international entries unless you are willing to pay for shipping. The winner will be selected using Random Generator and will be announced on the blog on Sunday April 15th.
