Spread L-o-v-e #2: Celebrate the romance with a pair of handmade Valentine's Bears

February is a time to show affection, care, love and friendship.

A time to be thankful for being loved and having someone to love.

A time to stir up the feelings of romance.

A time to smell love, breathe love, feel love and give love.

Yes, Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

In the second of my Spread L-o-v-e initiative, I'm giving away a pair of handmade amigurumi (Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals) Valentine's bears to someone special. 

It comes with a boy and girl bear and they are approximately 5" tall. This being merely my second crocheting project, I'm far from perfection but once again, I made them with my heart and if you receive them, I hope you will feel the love from within. These bears went all the way to Kiruna with me when they were halfway done, so if they smell of reindeers and mountain hares, you'll know why.

Here's how to enter:

Kindly leave behind an email address for me to contact you in the case you are selected.

Who can take part:
Anyone who believes in love

A winner will be randomly selected on midnight 5th February (Sun) and contacted via email. Results will be announced here on the following day.

If the winner responds within 48 hours, I will be able to provide an additional service and that is to stitch an initial onto each of the bears. Of course, you can also leave them as they are if you prefer so.

~Sometimes we make love with our eyes. 
Sometimes we make love with our hands.
Sometimes we make love with our bodies. 
Always we make love with our hearts.~

So, what are you waiting for?

Let's Spread some L-o-v-e!

  10. Valentines Day is a time to show your spouse how much you still love them. (Though you should do that anyway.) Also, it's a time to force your significant other to go watch that cheesy chick flick with you. :p Those bears are awesome. I can't believe you made them I think handmade things are the best and most meaningful!

  11. Valentine's Day is a time to remember our loved ones and celebrate the beautiful day. For me it's a day i spend with my beloved baby gal & hubby .... my daughter loves the bears and i would love to purchase. it all the best to the winner
