Yarn Giveaway Resolutions Contest!

Happy New Year to everyone! I've never been one to stick to New Year's resolutions, so I tend to not make a lot of them. However, this year being so hectic between teaching a new grade of exceptional children (6th) and twice as many as usual AND, raising a new puppy, my crafting has really fallen off. I fully intend to get back on the crafting wagon this year and make some effort to make time for myself to do so. I purchased two scrapbooks for my great nephew and one of my great neices and have actually started on these. I'd like to get at least their first year done by May so that I can give them to each of their mothers. My Mighty Wolf loom is warped and partially woven for a wall hanging, I have a new 15-inch Cricket loom I can't wait to warp.
So that's a start with my resolutions. My etsy business is my other resolution. I've decided that my craft studio is too crowded. I'm hoping to sell out of most of my yarn and concentrate on offering handmade items such as woven fabrics and scarves, or maybe even some handwoven toys for pets. That all hinges on getting my pup, Benjen, to settle down upstairs and to perfect his potty habits a little further.
So, what about you? Have you made any crafting resolutions for this year? Send a comment to share. I'm offering two free skeins of yarn from my etsy shop: Universal Yarn World Class Stash 403 Pergola Lot S3520. This is a newer yarn from Universal Yarns of Concord, NC. It would make a really fun knitted or crochet hat or mittens.  I'm listing the skein information so you'll know what you're competing for.  I'll post the winner by January 20th.  Good luck!
