March Giveaway


Greetings All - That last giveaway was so much fun! I almost missed the drawing as I was busy quilting away for an etsy order that came in recently. I was working on a few quilted mouse pads. I like these little buggers so much, that I decided to offer them for my March giveaway! How do you like that? These pads work great for the laser type mice. If you have the old roller ball type, they might not work so well.




I have been offering these mats as candle mats and hot mats for quite some time now. One day, I was using my computer and looked down to a faded and cracked old freebie mouse pad. You know, the ones you get for free at shops, banks and the occasional computer store? Disgusted, I tossed the pad thinking I would find another when out shopping with the fam. Well, those of you who know me know that I can be quite forgetful if I don't write something down. Sure enough, I didn't add it to my list and I FORGOT one while out. Next time I sat down to use the computer there was NO mouse pad and I was quite upset with myself. I sat there fuming for a few minutes and glanced around the room. I had a stack of newly quilted mats ready for a local shop and the light bulb when off! I snatched one and have been using one as a mouse pad ever since!



So, for this giveaway, the lucky winner will get a handy dandy quilted mouse pad in scrappy colors (yours will be finished, I promise) AND one of our popular foil cupcake tarts AND a set of EASTER mini vintage postcards AND a set of our fantasy wings hang tags!



Same rules as last time folks! Everyone can enter up to 4 times in the following ways. You don't need to have a blog to win:

1. Send me an email to enter at ryanwalsh@stny.rr.com.
2. Post a comment below to the blog.

4. Post the giveaway on your blog along with the giveaway image above (click the image to enlarge and save) and let me know so I can add your name again.

The winner will be chosen at random on Tuesday, MARCH 31, 2009. I will post the winner here on the blog as well as announce the giveaway for the upcoming month.

GOOD LUCK! TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS!

  17. Hi, Ryan - what a GREAT talent/hobby/skill -- with real results! These are gorgeous, & I'm without a mousepad, so I'm entering. And even if I don't win, keep up the beautiful quilting. I'm from DC where you don't meet many quilters, so this feels like a real treasure.
