Filed under: Sales & Promo — boutiquekarma @ 2:23 pm

The May Day Giveaway is closed and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for a fabulous turn out and participation. It was amazing and fun! I had a total of 254 entries and some great feedback. I used to select my winning entry 154 – Beth who had two entries, her second being the winner (good thing she ‘liked’ me on Facebook). The winning comment:

“I am a fan on FB and I “like” you..”

her first comment I really liked also:

“LOVE it!!! I could definately use one of those…keeping up with my 3 boys isn’t easy these days! Thank you for the chance to win. BTW~love those mug huggers too!!”

I’m the mom of a 4 year old girl and a 2 year old boy – these boys never stop!

Congrats Beth – Enjoy your prize!

Crafty Poll – Oooops? What now? May 9, 2010

Hey Crafty Ladies & Gents – I have a little poll for you. What do you do with your seconds? By seconds I mean stuff you aren’t excited about, stuff that doesn’t meet your high level of standard?

Working with material sometimes I run into an issue where the fabric placement doesn’t excite me on the final product or my corners didn’t turn nicely and appear to rounded. Often because of the repeat on the fabric my characters might appear upside down right smack in the center of a coffee sleeve or not at all.

This is the case today for one of my new Mug Huggers – which I thought I would giveaway here on my blog. It is still super cute, it just wasn’t perfect, it was missing the major character of Alice. The only sign of our heroine is her upside down feet in the second picture. The mug hugger is all black with black stitching, the small pictures are white with a small touch of gold shimmer. It really is a whimsical beauty, perfect for any child at heart or fan of the original classic.

So here’s the deal, no crazy hoops to jump through.  Just leave a comment & email address and you’ll be up to win a cute Mug Hugger of your own. If in your comment you suggest another venue or idea for my ‘ooops’ I’ll be eternally grateful.

Tara xoxo

Link Love – Treasury ::Green Tea with Zen and Honey:: April 3, 2010

I always love it when I’ve been chosen to be a part of a treasury. It means someone took the time to love my product and link it up for others to enjoy within the company of other fine pieces of work. Today, while waking up and not yet enjoying my loyal cup of coffee I found a message in my Etsy convo box telling me to check this link: Green Tea with Zen & Honey Treasury on Etsy

Wooooot Wooot – it is so gorgeous! I love the theme and the colors are just divine. Many of you know that my favorite color is green and mixed in with natural hues of brown and gold it just pops off the screen.

I want to take a moment here to thank Steph’s Art & Glass for featuring my Mug Hugger in your treasury – please everyone take a minute to check out her shop:

here are a couple of beauties from her collection:
