Giveaway #1!! :)

Posted in giveaways!, Main at 4:44 pm by carrie

Some items handmade, some of them hand selected from our shop ;)

Items #1 and #2…
A set of 4 cupcake notecards that I adorned with German glass glitter and crystals :) Original art by me :)
Item #3
A little chick in a foil basket by Midwest.
Item #4
A little bunny holding an egg by Bethany Lowe Designs.
Item #5
A little “Peep” chick wearing a party hat by Midwest.
If you tell your friends and we get over 30 comments, I’ll add items #6-8!
Item #6
A cupcake necklace!!
A small chocolate and cherry cupcake with blue roses on a sterling silver chain. Glass bead made by our friend Cathi Milligan at Beadbrains and then it was assembled by yours truly ;)
Item #7
A group of little chicks in an egg cart by Midwest.
Item #8
A handmade bath gift set :) You get a bath bomb, glycerin soap, lotion and shower gel. I made everything but the fizzy.

If this blog gets over 150 comments, I’ll add more really cool stuff :) It’s already gotten 37 in less than 24 hours, it could happen ;) Please keep checking back!!!

***********Update Tuesday, March 13th************

Whoa!!!! 155 comments?!?! I never would have thought!!! Okay… to keep the momentum going… for every 50 more comments over 150, I’ll add something new… I still have to add a few new things because of the over 150 comments thing…. I’ll add those sometime today or tomorrow!! Keep the comments coming, this is so fun! :)
***********Update Thursday, March 15th************

Okay guys… where have you been hiding all this time? ;) Here are the new items I have added for us reaching over 150 AND getting to 200!!

Item #9
A little Nicol Sayre Chick! She’s a cute little pink paper pulp chick rolled in glitter.
Item #10
A little Midwest chick ornament. He’s like the above little “peep” chick but smaller and wearing more of a top hat than a pointy hat!
Item #11
A set of 2 little foil baskets with flowers from Midwest!
Item #12
A cute little vintage-inspired basket by Bethany Lowe Designs artist, Casey Mack.

I would have liked to add more of my handmade items, but I haven’t had time to make anything! eek! But we had so much fun with this giveaway that we are already planning future ones… there might be a scavenger hunt involved next time! Details to come soon :) What’s the next big holiday anyway? 4th of July? Ahhh heck, I think I’ll just do a “Happy Unbirthday” themed one and a “Why Not” themed one ;)

Okay… here are the rules:

1. You must comment on THIS post to be entered in the giveaway. Say anything you want, it’s only your placeholder ;)
2. One comment per person, please :)
3. Please include your email in your comment in the wordpress comment field (not in your actual comment that all the world will see!). If you are the winner (and I hope you are!) I’ll need a way to contact you!
4. I’ll be announcing the winners on Sunday, March 18th in the evening sometime :). I’m going to push the date to March 21st for the announcements. I just found the “Creative Giveaway” blog and I think it would be fun to participate. Everyone finds out what they won at the same time all over the world… I thought that was kind of neat! This means that the contest will be closed on the 21st… Let’s say at 12 noon Pacific Time or after I have my lunch! hehe!
5. International requests are welcome! *But* I may send you some of the lighter stuff and not the 4 lb bath product set ;) We’ll cross that bridge when I get to it!
6. To clarify, there will be 12 different winners and I’ll be sending out 1 item per winner :)

I think that’s it… Good Luck and thanks again for reading!!!! Happy Spring! :)

    According to #11 on your list, you’d like to try collage art? Looks like you already know how. I enjoyed seeing your pieces. I am new at collage art myself, am more of a painter. But there is something about the old papers and all the possiblilities with them that I love.

    Please enter me into your contest, the birdie is cute as can be.
