My One Hundred and Eleventyith Sale!

I've always wanted a reason to say "hundred and eleventyith." And now I have one! Today my etsy sales number reached 111.

In celebration, a prize must be awarded.

Up for grabs is one of the 4 hand cut owl collages seen below. Each is 8 inches x 10 inches with about 1/4" of dimensionality.





How to enter:

1) Choose your favorite of the 4 and comment on this post telling me which one is your favorite.
2) Share a link to a favorite crafty blog of yours and you will be entered to win your favorite owl!
3) If you get a friend to enter, your name will go into the "bag" for each friend you refer. Make sure your friend says that you sent them my way so's you can get credit for the referral.

4) HERE's THE HITCH/FINE PRINT/CATCH: In order for this contest to be "ON," there must be a minimum of 11 unique/different entries. In other words, a minimum of 11 different people need to enter the contest by the deadline in order for this contest to be ON. So get going, people!!

On January 1, 2010, I will select the winner. The winning entry will receive the owl collage she chose as her favorite. Yahoo!

I like 4 and 2 and 1, but in the order of 4 and 1 and 2. The woodgrain fabric is really nice. And the orange and greens really pop.

Crab Apple Designs said...

Hi Catherine,
Yes, this pink wood grain paper (also known as "faux bois" which means fake wood in french) is part of a package of cutie pink themed patterned paper I got in a pack at Michaels recently. I'm trying to learn how to design my own woodgrain looking paper in crazy colors now so we'll see....thanks for the comment!!

Congrats on your 111th sale!
Love your owlies! Number one is my fave. The bold green cuteness against the stripes is adorable.
I am a sucker for tutorials, so the Sew Mama Sew blog's 2009 Handmade Holiday Master List is a crafty dream http://twitter.com/digitalmisfit/status/6420733606

I like #1 the best, because these are the colors that would work in my brand new niece's room (my first niece!)

My current crafty obsession is hand-cut paper snowflakes ala
