Product Giveaway.

***Giveaway is open until Wednesday, October 26th, until 9:30 p.m. EST.*** Winner will be announced at 10:00 pm EST on 10/26!***

A couple months ago, I received an email from Meg over at ‘Whatever’. She had found my shop through Ashley Ann, and wondered if I would be interested in sponsoring her blog and creating some items for the people attending her annual Craft Weekend. I was happy she asked, and immediately said yes. So I spent some time working on getting gift bags together and sending them out to Kansas.

Recently, she gave me the opportunity for a post on her (very funny, very popular) blog and to participate in a giveaway for my Etsy shop. I had a feeling my readers might enjoy that, especially since (ouch) the holidays are (too quickly) approaching.

So, I’m giving away 2 – $25 gift certificates to ElizabethSt. & 2 sets of Vintage Map Pinwheels. & 2 sets of Vintage Map Paper Globes. And 2 sets of Vintage Map Pinwheel Fans. That means there will be 8 separate winners.

This giveaway is open to anyone- in the US or internationally. How to win? Just leave a comment on this post with a link to your favorite creative project idea(s), or a link to your favorite design or craft blogs. If you pin this giveaway post to Pinterest or tweet it, you’ll get an additional comment opportunity for each pin or tweet. Just leave your pin/tweet link in the second comment. Eight winners will be announced next Wednesday, October 26th at 10:00 pm EST. Which means you can enter up until Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.!:)

Have fun! (And thanks, Meg & Kimberlee!)
