Handmade Giveaway

It's the first Monday Giveaway! This week's goody comes from yours truly.

Ok, so this happened ages ago (I have an excuse honest!), but back in March I was one of five to win Blythe's handmade giveaway! I still haven't received anything because...well...she still has to make them, but I'm sure whatever it is will be fantastic. The girl is super talented.

Anywho, I didn't want to post this until I knew for sure what I'd make and made them so the winners would receive them quickly. Unfortunately, that hasn't really happened and so here we are. The only thing I know for sure is these cherry tree postcards I painted weeks ago will be a part of the gift.

The rules (lifted straight from Blythe):

The first five people to comment on this post will get something made by me. My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.

2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be photography, I may sew or paint something. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely creative.

But there's a catch! You must re-post this on your own blog and offer the same deal to 5 of your own lucky blog readers. So, the first 5 people to leave a comment telling me they are in, win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it.

Any takers? (And yes, you have to have a blog for this one. Sorry non-bloggers! I promise you'll get your chance next week!)

Oh, and happy Monday :)


  1. Hi, popping in from SITS to visit! You posted on roll call right ahead of me today.

    I always thought these were cool - but I'd do better to say I'd send "something" rather than something "homemade" or "handmade" cuz I'd never manage to get around to it - I know me well - so ... I guess I'd better not play this time! But thanks for the invite and have fun!!

  2. I AM GETTING SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!! I commented! Yes, me, me, meeeeee hee hee

  3. Wait, I just finished reading the blog post. That sucks! I'm mad

  4. Homemade postcards.....what a GREAT idea. I think I might try and do that too...of course, with my talent, I'll just mail them to grandma and grandpa and pretend that OJ made them. :)

  5. Thank you so much for that link. I can't imagine where my invite was, it must have gotten lost in the mail.

  6. So, so far I've got Intense Guy down. Tooj, are you in or no?

  7. don't worry, i haven't forgotten! it's coming, it's a coming....! ;)

  8. Ya know.... count me in. I'd really like to see what you'd have in mind for me. I'll repost in a bit. I got alot of entries to catch up on since I've been playing with my layout the last couple days.

  9. Sweet! And I'd like to take this time to say that what I make might very well turn out to be simply awful.

    There. Now that the pressure's out of the way, off to think of what to make...

  10. Ha ha. . .
    You are so cute.....
    I love it.....I love the post, love the prize, love the wording and oh so love the whole concept. :-D

    Good luck to the first 5

    Hope your weekend has been beautiful.
