Mushroom Bookmark Giveaway

16 Jul, 2010 by in etsy, mushrooms 23 comments

Today’s giveaway is from Etsy shop owner Alice Cantrell

Hello! I am Alice and this is my tiny shop.
I am a wife, mother, sewer, doodler, gardener, painter, teacher and collector.
I love simple lines and natural colors. Autumn days and camping nights. Vintage, well loved objects and good music. Walks in the woods and the smell of fresh bread in the oven. My faith and my family. My husband and I homeschool our six (yep, 6) kids and glean much inspiration for our learning and living from the natural world around us. Welcome!
I’ll put the kettle on.

My great-great-grandmother was a wife, a mother, and a poet. Her name was Marie Louise Smith Edgar (1851-1946) and it is one of her handwritten poems that makes up the background of these little bookmarks.

I have digitally collaged one of my watercolors over it (A multi-generational collaboration of sorts.) and added one of my favorite Einstein quotes. I have left the back blank for jotting down favorite pages and passages. A set of six, professionally printed, “Noteworthy Bookmarks” comes packaged in a clear cello sleeve. At 2″ x 6″, they are just the right size for tucking into your correspondence or gifts.

Alice has donated THREE packs of bookmarks to our blog readers.

Please email me your street address with the name of the contest in the tag line, (so it isn’t marked as spam) and we will send you out your prize. If we don’t hear from you within 48 hours a new winner will be re-drawn. Unfortunately, some of our ETSY sellers are reporting rude comments from winners and malicious tweeting. If there is a problem with your prize, or you don’t receive it, please contact us so we can correct the problem. You are getting a gift free from people who have contributed their time and talent so let’s all be mature about it. Those who made donations to Chile relief efforts, thank you! Last week I was able to send two more boxes which brings total boxes sent to relief victims to 42.

As giveaway prizes are shipping from all over the world, so please contact us when you receive your package. I have seen some STRANGE things happen with the mail! Speaking of which, I have sad news that our “Shadow Hills” ARC is missing in action…my personal book which I sent out was either lost or stolen en route, so we have to suspend the tour. I am so sad. The good news is that plenty of other books are still out there on tour being read and reviewed. Take good care of them which includes wrapping them in tissue or bubble wrap before shipping and delivery confirmation πŸ™‚ Thanks to all of our blog readers and followers. ENJOY!

Our goal is to ship out all of the ones we have waiting to go and we have had a request from cities Chiguayante and Talcahuano where people are STILL living in tents since the destruction left them homeless in March. It is winter over there so let’s get them some help. Donate via Paypal or purchase from our ETSY stores, HeatherZahnGardner and LittleRedReads where 50% of the proceeds go to Chile.

Custom Mermaid Lego

02 Jun, 2010 by in mermaid, siren 11 comments

Searching for SIREN items I stumbled upon TheBeachGnome. First of all those really are two of my favorite things…beaches and gnomes. Second of all our names are the same and she is a SAHM as well. We’ve had fun shooting emails back and forth. She’s generously donated a custom mermaid lego girl…”My name is Heather and I am a stay at home mom to 3 boys. I love to create and I have a list a mile long of things I want to make. So many things in nature are magical and inspire me. I am an eclectic “artist”. I guess I’d consider myself an ADHD crafter. I want to try it all!

A beautiful mermaid with some bling. Her shiny silver tail reflects the sunlight as she swims through the water. She is a woman of many moods, her head can be turned to reveal a pleasant smile or an anguished grimace. She is approximately 2 ΒΌ inches tall.
