JanuaryEach year January signals the beginning of a bright, new year.  It also brings with it the cold days and evenings that provide us with the opportunity to dig out our cute winter hats, gloves and scarves.

And now, for the second year in a row, January also brings us the “Jeepers It’s January” giveaway hop, which is hosted by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It.  I’ve decided to join them this year, along with lots of other great blogs.

JanuaryI’m including in my giveaway a homemade “messy bun beanie”.  That’s right, I’m hand crocheting a beanie for the lucky winner of this giveaway.  It will be in shades of green and brown, similar to this one I just completed.  Messy bun beanies work great for those of us that like to wear our hair pulled up.  Your ponytail or bun just pulls through at the top!

But wait… that’s not all I’m giving away!  If you’re like me, you are still trying to get caught up from the holidays, so I’m also including a $25.00 Visa gift card for a little $$ help.

So enter here for a chance to win the beanie and $25 visa gift card and then check out all of the other blogs listed below and their great prizes.

Thanks for entering and good luck!

P.S.  This giveaway will be shared on some of the link parties found on my “Where I Party” page.

We’ve had a very odd winter for Kentucky. Our average temperature is 40 but we’ve had 60s! Allergies are already bad as the weather then drops to 30.

It has been a good winter. We have had really cold days, but then a few warmer days to follow, so it wasn’t endless freezing which has been really nice. I am however, really ready for spring. I want to plant my garden.

Old man winter has been cold and cruel to us. Sometimes the temperatures drop to below freezing. Then, it warms up before the snow has a chance to accumulate. Then drops again. Sigh. All the misery with none of the fun!

Here in the north Atlanta area of Georgia it hasn’t been too bad. It’s been cold, then warm, then cold and the snow we were supposed to get was actually ice pellets, so after a couple days that melted off. Otherwise, it’s been fairly pleasant if a bit cool.
