Owl Doll Giveaway Details : :

Did I say this was my first ever giveaway? If not: This is my first ever giveaway! Here is what we are doing. I explained a little, too little, here - so I figure I better clarify a bit.

:: Being the Eco-friendly, Earth lovin' artists that I am, I figure it's the perfect month -- in honor of Earth Day -- to do our first giveaway. Each day for the month of April I am going to be introducing a new handmade, eco-friendly owl doll (except weekends).
All you have to do is become a follower, come back and visit as many days as you like to check out the new owl, and
leave a comment. Each day you comment, increases your chances of winning! Make sure your comment includes either your name click-able to a contact page with a valid email or write out your email when you comment, so I can contact you if you are the winner. We are writing down all of the people that follow and comment each day and on the last day of the owl parade, we (Kaiden :) will draw a name. I will announce that drawn name here on May 1st, contact the winner, and they will win a custom owl for themselves. They can look through the owls I've shared throughout the month and let me know what they would like me to make them (free personalizing, free shipping)! We are so excited!


The kids are always eager to help with choosing the yarns and the fabrics, and so it's only fair that they get to name them. Jacob named this little guy - Austin Owl :

~ Thanks everyone!

  8. Now Kerri wants to win an owl too. She loves peeking over my shoulder when I visit your blog. She lights up when she sees the dolls, and asks: "Did's Jacob's Mommy make that?" "She's an artist just like you!"

  25. I'm crazy about Oliver Owl . . . agree with Biz that it is also my favorite so far. Good job naming him, Kaiden . . . the name definitely fits!

  28. Before I forget, I think doing a giveaway is a wonderful idea for any entrepreneur in the business sense.

    I think Austin looks like the grandfather of the bunch! He is a wise owl.
