handmade giveaway!


[Elvira, a handmade creation from Eddy and Edwina]

Ooooh, I'm so excited about this!!! Cozynest has so kindly offered to send me a handmade gift with the promise that I will 'pay it forward' and send three handmade gifts to someone else! So naturally, I agreed. I'm a total sucker for handmade gifts, and Cozynest has the BEST style.

However, when Eddy and Edwina agreed to run the same giveaway, I cheated and joined Karin's PIF circle, too. Meaning I now owe SIX handmade gifts to others.

Is that even allowed? I don't know, but I'm a sucker for Karin's lovely creations, and hey, a girl makes mistakes.

So now, I solemnly swear to send a handmade gift to the first SIX commenters on this post, with the promise that they will pay it forward and post this same giveaway on their blog, offering three commenters a free handmade gift.

Make sense? Email me with questions, and let the gifts begin!!!

Hello Erin,
nice to see Elvira here! I don't know ,if you followed exactly the PIF-rules joining twice, but you found anyway a clever and very nice solution!

Well you know, Karin... I just COULDN'T pass up the maker of Elvira!!! :)

Emily said...

I have a job where I have to sit @ a computer all day but don't always have things to do. So I thought I would see where the PIF has travelled. I went back through Eddy & Edwina's and got all the way to this site: http://xszem.blogspot.com/2007/07/pif.html I have no idea what any of this says and am not even sure what language it's in. But I believe I went from the US, to Australia to Hungry while back tracking. So VERY cool!!

design for mankind. said...

EMILY: YOU ARE AWESOME!!! Thanks so much for looking into that; definitely fun to know! :)

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
