Mug Rug Madness is here! - giveaway post

I am so excited to get this thing kicked off! I have had Mug Rugs on the brain constantly for the past few weeks and have got so much great stuff to share with you. There are going to be LOTS of posts - every day for the next 10 days I'll have two posts here at Two More Seconds - one that will be directing you to the featured tutorial of the day's blog - and one that will be an informative post - the who, what, where, when and why of Mug Rugs! :]

There will be LOTS of information but every Mug Rug Madness post will be added to the official Mug Rug Madness static page at my blog here, so you don't have to worry about missing anything.

This post will serve as the official GIVEAWAY post. Just post ONE comment on THIS entry for a chance to win one of the awesome Mug Rugs that will be featured this week. Most of my guest posters have generously offered up their beautiful creations as prizes and trust me, they are all amazing! On April 1st I'll do a wrap-up blog and post the winners. (Just leave one comment, comments are moderated so it won't show up right away, but I promise it will be there!)

Also if you're on Flickr go join the Mug Rug Madness Flickr group here. We want to see pictures of all the Mug Rug's you've made already or when you make some out of the wonderful tutorials that are coming this week. I'll be featuring some of your pictures and blog posts out of the Flickr group this week in the Madness!

I'll be back later this afternoon with the introduction to the first tutorial - here's a little sneak peek to what's in store:
