The month-long Michele Made Me marathon à la denim continues today with... ah yes...
A GIVEAWAY for YOU!
Why a giveaway? Well Drop-Dead Denim was my first big bloggy event. This is just my way of celebrating its near-completion. And... I guess it's also my way of showing my gratitude to you for being part of it and making it so much fun! You know that your mere presence fuels my creativity right? That makes me a happy person. So I want to say thank you.
Edited to Add: Item #12 was added to the Giveaway on 27 Sep 2011!
What's on the table, you ask? The 12 items pictured below will be divided secretly (yet carefully) amongst two lucky readers. Tee hee hee...
NOW! I am just chuffed to have some generous sponsors contributing to today's giveaway!
The first is Brentave Ideas, a dear little etsy shop who's motto is: "Giving new life to old jeans". By George, that is my kinda shop. Denise, the owner, has generously donated the handmade denim pillow (Exhibit#11) above! And pictured below are some of the great denim items available in her shop. They include: a Lilly pad lap cover, a bolster pillow, and a wrist pin cushion. Drop by Brentave Ideas and have a gander. Denise would love to have you!
Daring Miss Lassiter, a second lovely etsy shop, has furnished us with the cutest pair of denim heart earrings (Exhibit #8)! Susan creates unique accessories often using denim as a starting point. Some favourite denim items in her shop can be seen below and include: the designer tie tote, dangle earrings, and pendant necklace!
Susan is kindly offering 15% off to shoppers who've found her shop via Michele Made Me. Enter coupon code MMMPROMO to receive the discount. Isn't that brilliant? Visit Daring Miss Lassiter at etsy or on Facebook anytime!
Edited to Add: I've been lucky enough to add Fringe Fiber to the giveaway contributors today (27 Sep 2011). See the following paragraph!
Thirdly, Fringe Fiber is an etsy shop whose owner, Kristie Peters, weaves old denim and other fibers into the rich and gorgeous coasters and table runners that you see in the photo below. Kristie has been weaving most of her adult life, and in her own words: "is particularly drawn to upcycling and repurposing existing materials." As you've probably guessed, Kristie has generously donated some beautiful hand woven denim coasters (Exhibit #12) to today's giveaway. Kindly visit her at her shop, Fringe Fiber, on her blog Kris Peters, or on Facebook to see her creativity at work!
And finally, Nancy Minsky (our Drop-Dead Denim special guest), has graciously supplied one of the winners with a copy of her book, Denim Revolution!
Thank you Denise, Susan, Kristie and Nancy for your kind generosity!
