Announcing the Winner of the Instagram Giveaway

June 2016 Winner of Instagram Giveaway

Congratulations go out to @thequiltingdoberman!

You have won your very own copy of The Big Acorn Race. Please email squirrelpicnic(at)gmail(dot)com with your mailing address and I’ll pop your prize in the mail today.

In other news, did you know that you can now find The Big Acorn Race in Barnes & Noble (and wherever books are sold). I don’t know if that’s a big deal, but when I saw that the book had ventured beyond the realm of Amazon and out into the big wide world, it really gave me quite a thrill. It’s like watching it fly out of the nest. (Sorry, weird metaphor. How would I know what that’s like? I should’ve interviewed a bird before saying such a thing.)

We’re working hard on getting the book into yarn shops nationwide as well. I’ll keep you posted on where you can find these little squirrels and their adventure.

Congratulations to the Winners of The Big Acorn Race Giveaway!

Hodge and Podge and I are pleased to announce the winners of the first ever Big Acorn Race Giveaway! Thankfully the Gleam Giveaway app does all the work of picking random winners. (Podge was worried that she would have to do it, and she can’t take that kind of pressure.)

The Great Cookie Giveaway!

Chocolate Chip CookiesWe’re rounding out Squirrel Picnic’s very first year, and I just want to take a moment to offer my sincere appreciation. Your enthusiasm and support means the world to me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by the picnic and making it such a fun and positive place. I couldn’t do it without you!

To thank you for all the love, and since we’ve been talking about cookies a lot lately, I offer the Great Cookie Giveaway.

The rules are simple. Answer the following question in the comments below for your chance to win a half-dozen completely edible and incredibly yummy cookies from the experimental baker Becky McKay AND a half-dozen crochet chocolate chip cookies from me!* I’ll let the random number generator choose the lucky contestant. Then at noon MST on Friday, December 6, I’ll announce the winner. Okay, here’s your question…Chocolate Chip

 What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Pretty easy, huh? One comment per person, please. Don’t worry, there’s no wrong answer and no answer will be considered better than any other. The winner will be chosen totally at random. So have fun everyone! I can’t wait to send out these cookies.

*For our friends outside the United States, unfortunately most international shipping laws prohibit the mailing of food, so I won’t be able to send you the edible portion of this prize, but I’ll add a variety of other crochet goodies instead.
