Hello! Welcome to Emmy + Lien, my brand new site about all things yarn and creativity. If you came over from my old blog, you deserve an extra special squeeze for continuing to put up with me. And if you've stumbled onto this page in some other way, well here's an especially warm "hello" to you.
In any case, I'm so glad you're here. I've been tinkering away at this site, this brand, this new baby of mine (sorry real-life family) for months and I'm JUST A LITTLE BIT EXCITED about finally taking it beyond the confines of my sketchbooks.
To kick things off I thought I'd have a little giveaway. A welcome present, if you like, as well as a visual introduction to what Emmy + Lien is all about.
Melamine cup by Rice DK | Incawool by Hjertegarn | Handmade notebook by Bungalow
1 x melamine cup by Rice DK | because, tea and colour.
1 x 100g ball of yarn from Hjertegarn | an Oeko-Tex Standard 100-certified, 100% Highland Wool. squish.
1 x notebook by Bungalow | scribbles galore!
To enter, scroll down to the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post. You'll see there are multiple ways to enter by following Emmy + LIEN on social media, but if you don't feel like doing that (or you want ALL the entries) you can also leave a comment telling me something about yourself. Anything, really. Just a hello and a little fact.
Some facts about me, in return:
- I'm based in the very south of Sweden, but I don't have a Swedish bone in my body (or a Swedish word in my brain, unfortunately) - I'm a perpetual wanderer and have done stints in the UK, Belgium, Japan, and Italy.
- I'm powered by tea, yarn, and words. Increasingly pretty pictures too, though I still have so much to learn.
- I'm a mother and wife, a writer and a tinkerer, a serial project-starter. How all of these things work together is a question I don't think I'll ever solve, but the fun is in trying.
The deadline for entries is 15 March 2016. It's open to anyone, anywhere - I'll happily ship worldwide. Good luck!
