a giveaway for the crafty book worms [CLOSED]

Hey crafty people! I've got the mother of all giveaways for you today and it includes FOUR different books for one lucky person to pour through. I hadn't planned on doing a giveaway this soon but Mike and I are in need of a little help! First, here's what's up for grabs...
 [excerpts taken from Amazon]

Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business - Pro crafter Meg Mateo Ilasco offers a step-by-step guide to everything from developing products and naming the company to writing a business plan, applying for licenses, and paying taxes. Chapters on sales, marketing, trade shows, and publicity round out the mix. 

100 Pretty Little Projects: Pincushions, Potholders, Purses, Pillows & More - this "best of" compilation presents 100 charming and totally easy needlearts projects from the previous eight books. From cozies, mini-quilts, and organic cotton pillows to pincushions, potholders, patchwork, purses and pouches, these stitched items feature the latest trends in fabric, design, and embellishment, Practical, adorable, and perfect to keep or give as a gift, every appealing project will have crafters sitting pretty!  

The Big Green Book of Recycled Crafts - Each project in this book uses one or more items that would ordinarily end up in a landfill. By finding ways to extend the usefulness of paper, plastic, cans, glass, clothing, and other recyclables, we've developed hundreds of green crafting ideas. Each is fun to make and even more fun to give as a gift! Whether you want to reinvent a lamp, create artwork from household discards, organize your photos, or get more mileage out of an old sweater, you ll find plenty of ideas and inspiration in these pages.

Cakepops - Wildly popular blogger Bakerella (aka Angie Dudley) has turned cake pops into an international sensation! Cute little cakes on a stick from decorated balls to more ambitious shapes such as baby chicks, ice cream cones, and even cupcakes, these adorable creations are the perfect alternative to cake at any party or get-together.

 Oh yeah, and there's one more thing up for grabs...

That's right... along with all four books, the winner will receive a free large ad on Crafted Love! The ad space will start immediately following the winner announcement and last through the end of the year :] If you are already a sponsor, I will just bump whatever plans you have currently into the new year so you can finish off the year with the large ads!
