scrappy owl giveaway

|

NOTE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. 

Earlier this week, my thoughts were consumed with a magazine deadline. When I'm working, whether it be for a client or for myself, I'm pretty much bathing in words. Even when I'm not sitting at my computer writing, I'm writing.

I love it, but it can also be exhausting.

So, yeah. This may sound a little weird, but one way I like to unwind after a big writing binge is by turning to other creative pursuits: photography, sewing, decorating. It gets me out of my head and into my body--using my eyes, my hands. And the kids love it, because typically I end up making something for them.

Call it serendipity that five minutes after I filed my magazine article, a friend of mine sent me a photo of some cute fabric owls she saw on Etsy with the subject line: "next sewing project?" YES!

This is good news for you, too, because I immediately dipped into my fabric bin and made not one, but THREE owls, and I want to share the love by giving one away to a reader.

Whoooooo will win an owl?
To win the owl, just leave a comment on this post between now and Sunday night (November 21st 11:59PM Pacific time). On Monday morning, I'll choose a winner at random from the comments. Only one entry allowed per person (duplicate comments will be disqualified). Include your email or blogger profile in your comment so I can reach you if you win. To keep the shipping cost down, I'm limiting the prize to residents of the US and Canada. (sorry, far-away friends)

I'll post the winner on Monday and will also provide a quick tutorial so you can make your own scrappy owl. :)

DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional sewer. The scrappy owl that the winner receives will be IMPERFECT and may or may not survive the test of time. Scrappy owl is cute, though, and should bring you some joy for however long it lasts. Scrappy owls are not intended for children under 3...or dogs...or any pets for that matter. You won't hurt my feelings if you decide to re-gift your scrappy owl to someone like say, your mother-in-law, your neice, or your mail carrier. It is the holidays, after all. Scrappy owl was manufactured in a household that contains tree nuts and other allergens...No one put scrappy owl in their mouth that I know of.

Oh, they are soooo cute. I have a recycled sweater owl a friend made for my son. This would be a great addition! Pick me! Pick me!

Oh, I want, I want! Would look perfect in my daughter's nursery. She's particularly into owls since her owl-themed birthday last month.

That would be the perfect thing to cheer up my grandmother. She collects owls of all kinds- she just loves them. Lately her memory has gotten worse and my grandfather recently passed away. She has become quite distant and I'm worried about her, a new owl would really make her day. :)
