Sweet Melly Jane Furry Fingers Giveaway

21 Apr, 2010 by in etsy, puppets 22 comments

Today’s etsy giveaway is from one of our amazing neighbors and friends. She is a super women who can do it all and do it well and she is an avid reader! Every time we go over to her house she has a huge stack of library books! Welcome SweetMellyJane… Hi! I am Melanie (a.k.a. Melly Jane by my hubby of 10 years). I am a stay-at-home mother of four youngsters; two girls, two boys. My mother taught me to sew and I am passionate about crochet. I love learning to make new things. I teach piano and I also enjoy teaching cooking and other home skills classes on a community level. I love hot fudge sundaes and Crunchy Cheetos, but not together.

My personal motto (at least for now):
“In the end, I am the only one who can give my children a happy mother who loves life” (by J.W. Baasgard). My family always comes first.

Furry Fingers finger puppets are the softest around! They are made of fleece and my original design. Perfect for imaginative play, and for keeping those little hands busy during travel or other quiet times.

For this listing, you can choose any 10 from the animals, or you can mix and match from my other finger puppet sets. The animals can be made in any color you choose.

To Enter to Win
a set of 10 furry fingers: leave your name and email address below

Steampunk Book Thong Giveaway

15 Apr, 2010 by in etsy, steampunk 37 comments

Today’s Etsy giveaway is from one of my absolute favorite shops
Happenchance and Odd
“I’m a Mommy. A good day is when I have had enough time to shower and brush my teeth.

I seem like a totally suburban housewife by the light of day. But, after a goodnight song, hug and kiss for my babies I turn into the Steampunk Goddess.

I spend my long insomnia filled nights working on designs, creating, searching Etsy for things I don’t need but must have or I will die.

What is Steampunk? Plain and simple, its old stuff made into something new. There is great beauty in vintage items that can not be found in the mass produced items in chain stores. Why adorn yourself with something hundreds of others have? It seems to me an easier, less painful self expression than a tattoo but with the same effect. Wearing a piece of Steampunk jewelry explains exactly who you are without having to say a word.


~~~~Don’t be another lost soul
It’s never wrong to know
what creates life to be free
it’s just called Individuality~~

Handmade Cowl by Chilean Memegalarce

09 Apr, 2010 by in etsy, free stuff, memegalarce, wool 16 comments

Today’s Chile relief giveaway is from native seller Memegalarce

Hello! Welcome to my little Etsy shop.
I am an artisan in construction; I live in Chile … the end of the world … The name of my hometown is La Ligua, from Quechua name that comes Lihua, which means wool which is woven to the house … the main economic activity in my city is the woolen fabric and the bakery elements that inspire part of my textile work … so I decided to name my knits with names of the rural towns near my hometown. I hope you enjoy the textures and the warmth of my work …
I hope you enjoy the visit and be interested in leading a part of me with you.
All the accessories you will find in this space are handmade and are part of my process of personal exploration through materials such as felt and wool.

I am a proud member of Etsy Latino Team

Hola! Bienvenidos a mi pequeña tienda de Etsy.
Soy una artesana en construcción que vive en Chile… al final del mundo…
Todos los accesorios que encontrarán en este espacio son hechos a mano y son parte de mi proceso de exploración personal a través de materiales como fieltro y lana.
Espero que disfruten la visita y se interesen por llevar una parte de mi con ustedes.

Here is Memgalarce’s message about Chile…
“I appreciate the invitation and interest in helping my country…the situation is still critical and I can see will not improve now that winter comes to the affected areas. I was traveling this week by the Maule region and the only thing that describes what I saw is: devastation and poverty.
I wonder which organization will channel the resources raised, as some agencies have centralized resources and areas remain unaddressed. I ask because I work in Fondo Alquimia ( the only fund for women in Chile and we are also developing a fundraising campaign to come to the aid of women and their communities … because we know that is through them to rebuild solidarity networks more effectively. The people there need underwear, shoes, bed clothes, some drugs, water…building supplies”
