Meet EMM Contest WIN free stuff

Okay, this is a week long contest and there are several prizes up for grabs! I’m hosting this contest in order to get to know my potential customers and to introduce you all to a wonderful lady, friend, and artist…Meet Emm Illustrate. She’s one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet; I love her use of color and her sketches. She does great portrait sketches as well, just give her a copy of a picture you would like sketched and she’ll bring it to life. The best part is that she does it because she loves it!

So, what’s up for grabs? One lucky person will get a portrait sketch done by EMM Illustrate. We will also be giving away a few purse size note pads with EMM Illustrate art decorating the cover. I’m tossing in a Mermaid Skirt and Tennis Dress Tutorial set (perfect for learning to sew clothes), The Flower Burst Headband Tutorial (anyone who can thread a needle can make this) and a hand full of headbands. Who knows what other goodies I’ll come across as well?

The winners of this contest will be chosen randomly and you can enter multiple times. Here’s how…

1 “Like” EMM Illustrate on Facebook
2 “Like” Tenderfeet Stitches on Facebook
3 Follow the Tenderfeet Stitches Blog
4 Answer the Daily Tendefeet Stitches blog contest question
5 Refer someone to either Facebook page or this blog

Each checked item is one entry. Each daily contest question answer is one entry. Each time your name appears in a comment on this blog counts as one entry; whether it is someone writing to say you referred them or simply your own comment. One condition, if you never comment on the blog you will not be entered. So, if you “Like” a Facebook page, comment on the blog “I Like EMM Illustrate” and “I Like Tenderfeet Stitches.”

Does your head hurt because you’re confused? Mine does and I thought this all up! Let’s just try to have fun. If you have a question, ask and I’ll give you another entry

Are you ready for the kicker? I know, I know, how could you possibly take anymore? If EMM Illustrate reaches 250 fans and Tenderfeet Stitches reaches 300 fans then one random entrant will get a free Easter dress, made from any fabric in my private stash. Off we go…

Contest ends Friday Febuary 4th 2011.

A Make Over!

I made it through a new baby and the holidays in one piece! Now that things in my house have settled down (some), I can put more energy into organizing my Etsy shop. I have many tutorials in work and lots of ideas. I'd love to know what my customers are interested in, so feel free to comment. While I'm working on tutorials I'm also sewing Easter dresses. A lot of my shop will be geared toward how-to's and ready made clothing and accessories, but I am always willing to try to accommodate custom orders. I'm working with a friend who is an amazingly talented artist and together we will be holding a giveaway. Details are to come!
