a just because giveaway

Thank you to everyone who stopped by or helped spread the word about my shop update on Tuesday.  All of my new work has gone to good homes and you'll see the shop is now empty.  I'm headed out for a few days to spend time with family and friends, and do some exploring.

While I'm gone I thought we could have a little giveaway.  Lark Books kindly provided me a second copy of 'Heart-Felt Holidays', to which I contributed a couple of projects, including that little heart brooch with the mushrooms on the cover.


Let's give a little surprise "just because" gift to someone you know.  Leave a comment below telling me who you would like to send this book to and why.  

I'll wrap up the book all pretty like a present.

If you win, I'll contact you for their full name and address and send the book to them with a note letting them know you were thinking of them.

I'll ship worldwide.  I'll draw a winning name on Tuesday, October 23rd.

Thanks so much, everyone!  Have a wonderful weekend.  See you soon.

This giveaway is now closed.

Oh I love this idea. My friend Maureen is a teacher and an artist. For the past year she has been fighting an aggressive form of cancer. It has knocked her for a loop. As an artist Maureen loves fiber and textile arts. I think receiving a surprise gift in the mail of any kind would be fun but this book would be right up her ally. Fingers crossed that she is the lucky winner.

Peace!

Stopped by the shop the other day, looking wistfully at your work. I love the little landscapes, sometime they look so familiar.

One day I would love to own one.

I would give the book to my sister Tracie. She loves to make things out of felt and has been having a tough time lately so she could do with the cheering up of that lovely book.

Love your work Lisa and thanks for sharing

Sally said...

You're such a sweetie! I would have you send it to my sister, who is just beginning to rediscover her crafty self. Much love to you and yours!

What a truely nice idea! I think it would be so fun to open your mailbox and find such a fun present that you were absolutely not expecting! I would love for you to send it to my mom. She has been such a huge help to me and my whole family for the past few months, I'd love for her to be able to enjoy a "just because" present!

Star of the East said...

A friend who just discovered how lovely it is to work with felt!

eidolons said...

I'd send it to my son. Yep. To the ten year old boy currently sleeping in the room down the hall. He has recently discovered a love of sewing with felt. I think this would be a lovely way to encourage him further. (:

Congrats on your shop selling out. With your beautiful creations it's no wonder they get snapped up so quickly! (:

Mona said...

I'd very much like to give this book to my norwegian friend. We see each other too seldom, due to the many miles that lies between us. Both of us like to do handiwork, and I really miss to be able to show her things I've made, ask her questions about techniques and colours - and most of all - just to sit next to her and talk, knit or sew. I'm sure she could make lots of beautiful things inspired by this book!

Raeraggs said...

This would be perfect for my friend Jungrrl over at Craftster. Not only could she use a break from everyone else's craftiness for a little of her own, but she has been pinning felt ornaments for Christmas ideas already. This book would be right up her alley.
Thanks Lark Books and Lisa for doing the giveaway!

Brittany - The Home Ground said...

Lisa, this is so nice of you! I would give my copy to a certain friend (you probably know who I'm talking about) who can always use more crafty in her life. I think she would love it!

Karen Traversy said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I would give it to my daughter, recently graduated from college, to start her craft library and inspire Holiday crafting.

ariadne said...

Great idea!I would give it to my friend Frieda who lives on a small Greek island and loves doing things with her hands for charity!AriadnefromGreece!

Heather M. said...

What a great giveaway. I'd send it to my daughter who is an excellent machine sewer but I'd love to see her work more with her hands.

Jaime said...

I would send this to my friend Anne, because she loves crafts!

Calee said...

My mom just took a felting class and fell in love with the process. I believe that I'll have a felty Christmas already but I'm sure this book would help her even more!

Wonderful post, as always Lisa!

Marion said...

I would like it for my friend Susie...just because she is a lovely lady who is having a tough time at the moment. This would make her smile and bring a bit of light to her life. And we could both enjoy making things to brighten her Christmas

Meagan O'Halloran said...

i would love this book for my friend Katie who is stuck in hospital indefinitely suffering from complications after surgery to try and remove cancer from her bowels.She has always been crafty, but lately seems to have(understandably)lost her inspiration.

Andreja L. said...

What a wonderful book.
My syster would love this.
Greetings from Slovenija,

Glo said...

I'd choose my friend Laurie. She loves felt. She is a winemaker like me, but she is married to her job, and I wish she would devote some time to relax and create beautiful things with a material she likes so well.

MadameRenard said...

I have a super talented and creative aunt who experiments with a lot of different materials and I'm sure she would like to give felt a try!
Thank you!
The book looks so lovely!
Bye from Italy

Doreen said...

I would love to be able to send this to my niece Cristen. She has a little one (he's 1 1/2) and has just opened up an organic baby food store. They are positively strapped for cash and I know she would absolutely love this little treat and could use it to make homemade holiday gifts for family and things for her little one.

Thank you so much
doreen

How delightful - I would like to give it to my 8 yr old neice as my brother is a single parent and his house is lacking in feminine touches and felty creations, that's for sure!

Ruth said...

I'd love to have it sent to my Mum, the most creative and inspiring woman in my life. It'd be lovely to treat her to a surprise (with your help!)
Thanks for the chance to win this for her.

Dear oh dear:) So many would jump for joy if receiving this book but only one person I KNOW would be truly amazed and happy! She is my one and only best-friend. I would only ad a note when sending the book to her- This is the book you can look only with me, with tea and cookies :)
