My First Giveaway!!!


MY VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!



Okay, friends! I am excited to announce my first giveaway and to give this thing a whirl! I am not quite sure exactly how this should go, because, like I said, it's my first, and I have never done it before.



Unfortunately for you, I don't have a great name brand something to give away. I don't have a spectacular friend from etsy that makes beautiful home made things.



What I DO have is some thing that I make (yes, there's an etsy shop http://www.gossamerjewelbox.etsy.com/) and I am going to give one away!!!




It has been mentioned in a couple of my posts that I make fairy wings- AUTHENTIC looking fairy wings, not the kinds that are covered in painted nylon. They don't look real, and they look terrible for photography, which is the reason I started making these wings. For the record, though, these wings are pretty fragile. Your daughter will LOVE them, but I suggest using them for a wall hanging, or, if you are a photographer, for pictures only, because they will get damaged, and they are non-repairable.



For the winner, to be announced on March 6th, I will create a CUSTOM pair of small fairy wings. You pick the color, shape and flower color, and I'll make them and ship them off. Here are some examples:















TO ENTER:

1 entry- Leave a comment here! Tell me what kind of wings YOU will want if you win!


1 entry- become a public follower, and let me know about it here in a comment.
1 entry- VOTE FOR ME by clicking the Top Mama Blogs icon on my left sidebar.


3 entries- Grab my button, or the button for and put it on your blog. (Again, let me know about it in a comment!) Each button is worth 3 entries.


Finally, 5 entries go to those who purchase a Spoon For Scarlet and help me help the children of Primary Children's Medical Center!!!!
Happy blogging and GOOD LUCK!

I don't have a daughter but I have nieces but I am into fairy stuff so I was thinking using them as a centerpiece on one of my walls. But I like all the sets so it would be hard to choice but I guess I love the ones on the baby.

Tiffany said...

Those bitty ones on the baby are PRECIOUS!

Pam, mom, honey, said...

i found you (155) but could not figure out how to vote, i clicked on votes in but it took me back to your blog

Mimi said...

I can't say enough how much Alex and I love your wings. I don't know what kind she would want though. I am a follower both publicly and from my own blog and we have a spoons for scarlet button on both my blog and Kelly's photography blog and I recently bought a spoon so I don't know if all those count or not. Oh and I just voted for you! I love to come here and read everyday. It makes me smile :)

I'm NOT a VOLCANO! said...

WOw! QUick turnout! Thank you everyone!

BTW, these wings aren't necessarily available- they're just examples.

mimi- of course those all count!

Good luck everyone!

I already follow (do I get extra points for being loyal before your giveaway?)

Crayon Wrangler said...

I tried to vote for you but seem to not have the bloggy force harnessed and couldn't get it figured out.

I'm NOT a VOLCANO! said...

LOL- You guys, you just have to click on the button to vote for me. I have gotten a lot of emails saying it wasn't working, but I think it is. I have gotten 61 hits in 2 weeks, and 4 of them were from today. I am really really new to Top Mommy Blogs, and if there's something else to be done, I have no idea what it is- I have read the FAQ's 3 times from top to bottom, and I think I've done everything right. THanks for voting!!! Just click the button- I think that's all you ahve to do!

ApachesPrincess said...

Amazing giveaway!

If I won, I would just love to use these for my photography, and I think that I would like them to be kind of soft and light pink with maybe a few light pink rose petals in it?

Hi! I have both of your buttons, I follow you, and I clicked on your top mommy blog thing to vote for you. These wings are beautiful and any pair would fit perfectly in my youngest daughters tinkerbell room!

Pol said...

Wow, just love the wings. I would love wings to use with my little ones at school ( I'm in England and I teach year 1 - that's 5-6 year olds. I think that's kindergarten in the US - though I'm not 100% about that.)

Anyway - my school is in the performance network of the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company). This term I am doing A Midsummer Night's Dream with the children - they are loving playing at being naughty fairies in the magic forest. It is so special to be introducing Shakespeare to young children.

Rebekah said...

I love them! I've been debating if I should enter. (I won't use them that often) but I finally decided to go ahead and give it a try. I would love to win a little girls set for my little pixie.

Melodic Mom said...

Wow, these are really beautiful. I'm not creative at all, so it's hard for me to come up with something on my own. But I love the kind in the 1st picture on the baby, and I think a pink or "crystal-like" color would be pretty. I'd give them to my friend who specializes in photographing babies & small children. (Then I'd have her take pictures of my 12-month old with the wings!)
