Win a copy of the Chronicle Books title, Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi!


I’ve got a great little giveaway for you today. Chronicle Books, one of my favorite book publishers, has donated a couple of great new titles for me to use in giveaways. Yay! The titles are from Chronicle Book’s Crafts line, which includes such great titles as Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby Into a Business by Meg Mateo Ilasco, Subversive Cross Stitch: 33 Designs for Your Surly Side by Julie Jackson and Sublime Stitching: Hundreds of Hip Embroidery Patterns and How-To by Jenny Hart & Alexandra Grablewski.

The titles I will be giving away are brand new ones and the first one is called Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi! It’s wonderful book full of both eye candy & detailed and easy to understand directions and patterns….makes me want to pull out the ole crochet hook.

There are two ways to win a copy. 1) You can share a picture of a completed craft project that you have recently finished. Projects can include any type of arts and craft and aren’t limited to just crochet. You do need to submit an image though, which you can post a link to in the comments or send me via email

2) If you’re not so crafty or just haven’t had time lately to devote to craft, you can submit a top ten list of your favorite indie pixx via email instead of submitting a craft project. Your top ten indie list can include links to indie shops, etsy shops, blogs, online magazines, flickr pages or really anything as long as it’s indie and/or promotes independent art, craft, design, music, shopping etc. If I like your list, I may decide to use it for Reader Fixx Thursday, even if you don’t win a copy of the book.

I will pick one entrant, whether it’s a crafty submission or a top ten indie list submission to win a copy of Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi! This contest will end December 24th, so get cracking and enter your submission.

  1. I have been in love with these little amigurumi guys for a while now! I even bought some patterns online. Now, if I could just master the concept of crochet hehe 🙂 My most recent craft project was my 2008 Desktop Calendar that I used as my Christmas card this year. I was very happy with how it turned out! I actually made it into a contest item too (winner already picked). Here is a link to photos:
