It's time to get crackin' on this giveaway! I've had so much fun putting these giveaway prizes together, and this seems the perfect time of year to thank each of my dear readers (both of you, LOL) for your friendships and positive comments. I never knew how much I would come to love the blogging community and how many new doors it would open. So, I have put together six (6), yes SIX prize packages. I want to Rock This Blogosphere!!! Or at least call a bit of attention to Cathy's Crazy by Design, LOL. So, briefly, this is how it will work. Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered into the contest. WAIT! You must tell me WHICH prize package you want to be entered for! And make sure I have an email address to contact you - some of you don't have blogs or a published email, and I can't award a prize if I can't contact you!! If you don't specify which prize, I'll just randomly assign you to one of the prizes.
If you mention my blog and drawing - and post a picture (any one) on your blog, you get another entry - in the same or a different category. Just let me know that you've linked (I will check it out) and which prize drawing you'd like to be entered in for your second entry. (Are you still with me??) That's it - maximum two entries per person. I would love to add more followers and/or more subscribers, so if those numbers go up significantly (and I'm leaving that term rather fuzzy), I might find more stuff to add to the giveaway! :-)
Here are the Giveaways:
GIVEAWAY #1 Christmas Fabrics - 3 ydsChoose from these fabrics. You can have 1 yard of 3 different fabrics, a half yard of six different, or a quarter yard of twelve different, or any combination thereof. I'll work with the winner to put together a total of 3 yards of her selections.
Giveaway #2 - For the Collage Artist or General CrafterIn this package we have a plastic cone, a vintage decoupage book, about 8 vintage cardstock thread spools, 8 vintage Alice in Wonderland napkins, vintage plastic candleholders, a gold crest-like thingy, blue & beige floral wallpaper, and the cover of an old American Home publication called "The Book for Brides" - cute picture.
Lot #3 - Crochet CollectionThe collar on top is like new (and not vintage), but you may recognize the crocheted fan and two crocheted pillow edgings from a recent thrift store find. Pristine condition and definitely drool-worthy.
Giveaway #4 - Vintage Fabric Pieces & ScrapsThese are all pieces; only 2-3 are as large as a fat quarter and most are scraps. What you see is what you get. There are some here from the eighties, the bulk of them from the sixties or early seventies, and some from the forties and fifties. This is a real stroll down memory lane!
Lot #5 - Lace, Cutter Linens, Embroidery & Misc.Hopefully I've sized this large enough for you to click on and see the detail. There are also some samplers underneath (to be stitched and some already stitched). Vintage packaged lace (not expensive stuff), some eyelash thread, an embroidered lady in a round frame, and an ethnic-appearing table topper (has stains, but lovely x-stitch embroidery). There are a few hankies in there, too.
Giveaway #6 - For the QuilterThis lot contains several pieces of cotton (some a half yard or so), the aviator panels, some floral cotton hearts ready to stitch, a sticker book, templates, newspaper articles and lots of patterns and other published items, probably dating from the seventies, eighties (and perhaps the nineties). There's some good stuff in there, and the fabrics are all clean and and mostly lovely (some aren't to my personal liking, but that might be a good thing for you, LOL!)
Blogger's been screwing with my spacing, so I hope the above isn't too mish-mashed when it's posted.
DEADLINE - Saturday, December 5 at midnight, Mountain Standard Time. I'll go through everything on Sunday the 6th and hopefully announce the winners on Sunday - or Monday the 7th at the latest. This is a crazy week for me; it's my final week to prepare my merchandise and display for the boutique I'm doing on December 5. I also hope to get some of my vintage goodies listed on Ebay, Etsy and/or Art-Fire. I'll keep you posted, and will check in at least twice a day.
Good luck! Hugs,
