Poppyprint 500 - A Celebratory Giveaway!

I've had a lot to say since the day I started talking. My parents, teachers, friends and very patient husband would all nod their heads in agreement. I just can't help myself. I am incredibly bothered by awkward silences and as a result, tend to blather on with abandon at all times. I'm admitting to you all now that there are times in social settings where I actually have to concentrate really hard on NOT talking all the time. What can I say, I've been blessed with the gift (or annoying habit, more like) of the gab.

Sharing is also high up on my 'what I like to do' list. Blogging, therefore, is the perfect vehicle for me. I started my engines three years ago, and here I find myself at the Poppyprint 500. I'm waving the checkered flag for you all on a sweet giveaway to say thank you so very much for hanging out here.  I appreciate your comments and support so much!

Yo Yo, It's Winterkist!

I love this "Yo-Yo, It's Winterkist!" pillow cover I made with Monica's delicious fabric and some super soft chambray for Fat Quarterly's Holiday 2012 edition. It's so bright and cheerful and it would please me very much to share it with one of you.

Awww. How adorable is that Gnomie on the back? I still have some Gnomes and Gnomas left to make something fun for myself, so where will this little guy end up?

WAIT! If you don't win the pillow, you still have a chance to win an Echino passport wallet chosen from this stack of 34 that I've made for the VMQG table at Got Craft? coming up soon in Vancouver.

still have to install the snaps....

Leave a comment for your chance to win. I'll send the pillow cover anywhere and it should arrive in time to add a little punch to your holiday decor - you'll just have to provide the pillow form!  

If you are a follower of Poppyprint, please leave a second comment to double your chances - after all you're the ones who put up with my blathering on. And on. And on!

I'll choose two winners on Saturday Dec.1st at noon PST. Good luck friends! 

Thank you so very much,
Krista

Such a sweet cushion cover! LOVE yoyo's. I recently found a box of yoyo's I made as a child. I think I'll make a doll's quilt with them.

Those little gnomes are the cutest thing ever. Seriously. And the pink glasses wallet? It makes me want to travel somewhere far away just so I can put my passport in it :) Congrats on the 500. And, I'm so glad we met :)

Felicitaciones!!! por supuesto que me anoto!!!
Me encanta todo lo que hacés!!

Julia said...

I think the pillow is extraordinary.I did a yo-yo along with another blogger. I made 950 yo-yo's that are lime green and orange. I am crazy about the colors but then wondered if that was such a good idea after all. Your pillow with the soft gray is the perfect balance to the other colors. That pillow screams me all over! Aside from that I like the tab and found the gnome to be the surprise pop I didn't expect.

Jane S. said...

I'm a follower of yours through Google Reader/RSS feed. Thank you for the chance to win! :)

Jane S. said...

Woohoooo! Congratulations on the big 500!

I love that Winterkist pillow -- it's one of my all time favorite fabric collections and the back of the pillow is as cute as the front.

Excellent travel wallet, my poor passport is crying to be used and I think it would be quite happy tucked into such a pretty wallet. :)

Corrie said...

I love the pillow but I think there is probably some rule about being related to the sewer which nullifies my lottery entry. Conflict of SIL's. And of course I already have a lovely passport wallet. "Sew on baby" as we say.

Love CB

Traffic Pulse India said...

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
