Blogoversary Celebration!

Is it really possible that I’ve been blogging for a year??

Actually a year and a day.  Because in true Mommy Brain form, I remembered the date wrong and thought my blogoversary was today, but in reality it was yesterday.

Although I’m not entirely sure you should count that date because I didn’t write another post until halfway into September.  And didn’t start regularly posting until October.

But regardless of the actual birth date of DMB, I’m going to take today to celebrate and what better way to celebrate than with presents!!

So, I asked my fabulous friend, The Mad Hatteress, to bless us with her mad crochet skillz and she has offered to give away a free custom hat to one of my amazing readers!

Susan started her crochet business last year after moving from the temperate Midwest to the coldest state in the union…  Alaska.  Because if you are going to be outside in the frozen tundra six months out of the year, you better have some fashionable headwear.

Being able to wear this for half the year would almost convince me to move up North!

I love, love, LOVE it.

Or maybe you are more selfless than myself and want to get something for your favorite man….

Or perhaps your kidlet is an animal lover…

Choose a style, size, and colors and your custom creation will be ready in plenty of time for cooler weather to arrive (someday).

Enter to win simply by leaving a comment saying which Mad Hatteress creation needs to be yours!

Extra entries can also be earned by:

1)  Subscribing to DMB by RSS, email, or GFC

2)  Following DMB on Twitter or Facebook

3)  Liking The Mad Hatteress on Facebook

4)  Tweeting or Sharing this post on Twitter/Facebook (Don’t forget to tag @DearMommyBrain)

That’s five possible entries!  (Just be sure to leave a comment for each additional entry.)

Drawing will be held on Wednesday, September 14 and winner will be notified be email.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for receipt of your custom creation.

I have received no compensation for hosting this giveaway and all opinions are 100% my own.  I just really love The Mad Hatteress and her work.
