That gorgeous blanket pictured above? Is handmade by my friend Michelle. How does someone learn to sew like that when I can barely fix a button?
Her company Coverz makes the most beautiful handmade blankets and children’s bedding and donates a portion of all proceeds to help make blankets and bedding for children in need. She just made her first major donation to BlinkNow, a orphanage, school, women’s center, and medical clinic in Nepal. They’ll be using the donation to buy fabric locally which the women at the women’s center will use to make new bedding for children at the children’s home.
Michelle was nice enough to provide the code OHHEY for 20% off all purchases this holiday season and has offered to make a blanket for one lucky winner! To enter, just visit Coverz and leave a comment below. Earn extra entries by helping to spread the word about Coverz on social media. Just leave a link to your share in the comments.
The winner will be chosen at random on 11/23 and will be put in touch with Michelle to choose from a tan/cream, grey/grey, or grey/black adult-size blanket.

Reads of the Week
I didn’t have nearly as much time as I would have liked to read this week (Honestly though, will I ever have as much time as I’d like to read?), but I did read The Japanese Lover and I enjoyed it very much…until one very weird conversation. No spoilers, but if you read it, let’s discuss.
What are you reading this week? Books? Articles? Blog posts?
