We have decided that we are continuing our weekly tradition of highlighting local CT based artisans! We couldn’t be more excited about this. For the next 6 months, ALL of our giveaways are local! Remember: to try to win today’s giveaway simply leave a comment on this blog post. The contest will be open over the weekend and the winner will be selected by random on Monday morning. GO-COMMENT-WIN!
Today’s giveaway comes from the very talented Sarah McCoy of Manchester. She is donating a lovely customized happy birthday banner! If you win this, you get to pick the name & colors that go along with the banner.
Sarah is mom to a perfect, spunky, always on the move 10-month old little girl. Sarah is pretty lucky, she says, “not only is her daughter cute but she’s also the world’s best sleeper giving me time to craft.” (Jealous!) She also says she has an amazing husband who gives her the occasional night holed up in her crafting area, completely neglecting him (her words!).
The idea for the banners came after her little Charlotte was born and she wanted something to hang in her room. Months later she’s made many, many more for all sorts of occasions. She can’t wait to make one for our winner!
Celebrate and wish the special someone in your life a happy birthday! This bunting is made in three tiers so you can use the “happy birthday” over again.
The “happy” bunting measures about 3 1/2 feet long and the “birthday” is about 6 feet long with a selection of customizable colors. Each flag is carefully stitched, turned, and top-stitched for a finished look. They are made from 100% cotton fabric and thread. Letters are stitched on.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post to try to win! Don’t forget to check out her full etsy shop.
SunnyBeachJewelry, based in Hamden, CT is donating this beautiful handmade bracelet! In fact, over the new few weeks we will be giving out several of their bracelets! They offer men’s and women’s casual everyday wear jewellery made using mostly semi-precious and wooden beads, leather, waxed linen, cotton cord and silk ribbons. Check out their etsy shop!
