As you can see from my blog, I am very new at this! But this wonderful give-away idea has pushed me to jump in! This is the first year I will be participating, and I've decided to launch TWO give-aways!
The first will be the book Memory Quilts: Delightful Ways to Capture Today Forever by Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan. It is a lightly used, but very wonderful intro into the use of quilting as a function of memory.
The second give-away is something I call a "Things to Do Pack."
These are great items for altered art, collages, scrapbooking...or just imagination! The pack includes the following: 5 pieces of decorative paper, each 3.5" x 6," 2 drawings of bugs, 1 silver pipe cleaner, 1 cream bow with gold trim, 1 piece of gold wire (I'm pretty sure it's 24 gauge), 3 Monopoly game cards, 4 Halloween jack-o-lantern stickers, 1 piece of gold netting, 6 vintage Christmas stickers, 1 vintage Christmas tag, 1 vintage three-cent U.S. postage stamp, 3 small silver binder clips, 25 beads of various sizes and designs, 3 heart charms, 1 picture frame charm, and (not shown in photo) letter beads like the ones in baby bracelets - the give-away winner's choice of one word up to 10 letters (so long as I have enough of each letter).
To enter to win either of these items, leave a comment ONLY for this post. Please include your email address, so I can contact the winner. You can enter it like "tothinkthatisawitonmulberrystreet AT whimsy DOT com." I will accept comments for the drawing until 11pm Eastern Standard Time on Feb 11. The winners will be randomly drawn and contacted on Feb 12th.
Click on the blue circle at the top of this post to learn more about the One World, One Heart Give-away. When you get to Lisa Swifka's site (the founder of the three-year-old give-away), you will also be able to enter all the drawings by clicking on the links down the right side of the page. Almost 700, so far! Have a joyful time!
(Comments are now closed. I will be drawing the winners shortly, and will notify them and announce them here sometime tomorrow afternoon. Good luck to everyone! It's been so neat "meeting" people from all over the world. I wish I had 155 things to give away!)
