~Giveaway - Yeah!

I am doing a giveaway, since it is the cool thing to do nowadays.  My brother claims it is shameless self-promotion - but, hey I call it good fun.  From now until June 15th 12:00am PST comment here for 1 entry.  For the second entry you have to become a follower of my blog then post back here again.  The winner will be announced June 17th at 12:00pm.  I will ship world wide depending on where the winner lives.  It includes vintage: book pages, milk caps, buttons, labels, photos, game cards, a greeting card, and a stamp.  Plus a while you were out memo paper, carnival tickets, shells, a doily, a Mucha illustration, Cavallini & Co stickers, a lace flower, a remember stamp,  a today stamp, a butterfly and a ornament I made out of a vintage chandelier crystal.


Well, my hopes of submitting to Stampington were dashed.  I waited till the last minute.  8:30pm rolls around and I am a scatterbrain trying to figure out what to type as Chris is distracting me by claiming, "Come on we still have to go to Target."  "I thought you wanted to go to Target."  " Aren't you done yet!"  Yeah I was frustrated and near tears.  That seems to be happening a lot lately.  And as soon as I hit the send button, I noticed a mistake in the first sentence.   Thanks Chris.

Kiah and I walked to a couple garage sales yesterday.  I got a ton of vintage craft supplies: buttons, trim, Holly Hobby appliques, fabric, scarves, and fabric transfers.  I also got this cute shoe kit where you can make your own shoes.  It is called the Suburban Gypsies Shoe Kit.  Isn't it cute.

We had a garage sale yesterday, a lot of crazy things to get rid of after a fire at our studio. Too bad we are on different coasts.

I love these!! Really sweet of you to do a giveaway. :)

Jordanna said...

So I'm totally a follower. I love scrapbooking too, and your blog is inspiring! :)

Jen Poe said...

Any self promotion really should be shameless, shouldn't it? It's not like you're going to people and saying "Hey, I'll give you $1 if you read my blog every day for a week"... You're giving people a reason to come here so they can discover what you have to offer, and thus earning LOYAL visitors to the website! Own it, girl!
Thanks for the opportunity to win - I think these are fabulous!

Bo said...
