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

Let’s Celebrate Earth Day with an Organic Fabric Giveaway!

March Madness – Giveaway of one lucky coffee cuff March 1, 2010

Here we are in the month of March. I think March is a great month, it signals the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Here in Montreal there is a distinct difference between the beginning and end of the month as the snow thaws and spring begins to reveal itself ever so slightly. Spring is like a new beginning and in Montreal it always kicks off with the St. Patrick’s day parade. The parade is a joyous celebration where everyone is Irish – all the vast cultural communities head to the streets for a grand celebration. Usually, remarkably the weather is gorgeous (sunny and mild) signalling that spring is here. Of course it could also be the ‘special’ beverages that make the crowd feel a tad bit toastier.

Of course, once upon a time I was one of the lively (please read slightly inebriated) parade goers screaming and dancing at the sidelines. They were fun times, and public drinking seems almost tolerated at this one event in Montreal as long as things remain peaceful. I think the rowdiest I got was maybe singing slightly off tune. Here’s to Saint Patrick’s day being a week away and to celebrate we will be hosting a giveaway right here on the Boutique Karma blog! I’m so excited..

First I’ll let you know what the prize is:

Coffee Cuff - Lucky Clover

You could win your very own Lucky Clover coffee cuff to strut around with on Parade day, going to the office, on your walk around town, while your kids are swimming in the pool, etc. It’s a super cute cuff with an Irish flair, do not be fooled, you could use this one year-round. The contest will run until Midnight Friday March 5th, and the coffee cuff will be sent out on Saturday morning in order for the winner to receive as rapidly as possible.

here’s the details on how to enter & win extra entries for each entry, only #1 is mandatory:

1. Please take a look around the shop and tell me your favorite item:  ARTFIRE or ETSY
