Giveaway Day!!!!

What a great way to start the week!  Twice a year Sew, Mama, Sew! organizes a huge Giveaway Day for their readers, and I'm participating!  Woo Hoo!!!!


Here's what's up for grabs from my shop! 

* One custom felted figure from your child's drawing.
I will construct a one-of-a-kind, 100% wool needle felted figure from a drawing you provide.  It looks great displayed in a shadow box, or on a mantle together with the original drawing.   


Some close-up examples (from Jesse's drawings)





Just leave a comment on a blog post this week, with the answer to this question:

What's your favorite thing about Summer?

The fine print...
One comment per day, per person please.  International participants welcome.  Void where prohibited.  A winner will be chosen at random on May 25th, 2012, at 5:00 PM PST, and notified via email (so please make sure you leave your email address with your comment so I can contact you).  After the winner is contacted, he/she will have 3 days to email me a picture for the felted figure.  Your little felted guy will be shipped by June 1, 2012.  Friends and family are welcome and encouraged to enter, too!  Frames and shadowbox not included.  Check out the bunches of other giveaways here.  Good luck!!!
Can't wait for the giveaway to end?  Check out my shop for updates all week long!

Comments are now closed.  Congratulations, Kate!  I sent you an email.  Thank you so much, everyone for your lovely comments, and for participating in this giveaway!

  3. These are amazing. Love this!
    My favorite thing about summer is wide open days with little planned and lots of down time. Even though days will ultimately fill up; it's nice for that first week or two of summer to relax and refresh.

  4. These are so cool! We have two and a half weeks until summer vacation and I think I'm more excited than my daughter. I love the flexibility of late nights, long naps, bike rides, thoughtful lunches, and so on and so forth.

  16. This is soooo neat! How great to see their creations come to life!
    My favorite thing about summer is "cooler near the lake", which is a phrase common to SE Wisconsin, where if you live within a mile or two of Lake Michigan, the weather is always 10-15 degrees cooler in summer. Which, to me, is perfect weather for lovely days outside!

  28. That is SO cool! My almost 5-year-old would get the biggest kick out of seeing one of her crazy stories turned into 3D. In fact, we might have to make that a playdough activity on the next rainy day we get.

    Which leads to summer favorites... I looooooove a rainy stormy afternoon and the chilly air after wards. Yummmm.
