365th POST GIVEAWAY!

It's kinda hard to believe it's been a year already since I started this humble blog! I can tell you that I have immensely enjoyed keeping this little site going and sharing my projects with you all. So as a thanks for reading, I'm hosting a giveaway to celebrate ONE YEAR of blogging and 365 posts! Items included in this giveaway prize package are:

-One NEW Micron Size #005 Drawing Pen - My personal favorite and the kind I use for all my illustrations
-Original Art Print - "Happy Rat Saddles Dejected Cat" by me! Matted to fit any standard 5x7'' frame
-NEW K & Company Alphabet Tear Pad - 3 full alphabet/number sets perfect for collaging, scrapbooking, altered art (the designs are rad, trust me.)
-16 Sheets of 6x6'' Paper - Various brands, various designs, all very colorful, just the way I like 'em :)
-One Bottlecap Pendant or Magnet - You choose the design from the 96 different rinchies I've made up in the past few weeks.


Now there are 2 ways to enter. First, just become a follower of my blog and leave a comment here to say hi and that you want in! (If you're already a follower, just leave a comment and you're entered) The second way you can enter is by linking to this giveaway on your blog and leaving another comment here with the link to your blog! So each person can have 2 entries by doing the stuff I just said. The winner will be chosen on July 13th via random number generator and announced here at oopsicraftmypants.com.

This giveaway is open to US and Canada residents only (Sorry!) I just need to keep shipping under control. Thank you so much for following and reading and entering! Here's to many more years of craftiness and blogging about it!

Good luck!

OMG! I feel like I should start a blog just so I can have another entry! I've been eyeing that dejected cat for months now! I want it!

Leigh said...

I'm a follower. :D This is great- I love the illustration of the cat and rat. The cat looks kind of like one of ours who is a friend to rats. He lets them climb on him and such. ;)

What a cool blog! I am sorry to say this is the first time I looked at it, and I wish I would have checked it out sooner. I love all the stuff you have done. You are so creative. I love your long multi-bead necklaces. I love how you said you use them to keep kids quiet in Primary. Might have to get one to keep my kids quiet in Sacrament. I wish I was as creative as you!

I just found your blog today. Luv the things you've done( that I've gotten to see so far-have alot more to look at)and I do believe I'll really like the rest. Like colors like you do, too. I'll enter your contest while I'm making this comment. And I will be following your blog. It's good. I'm glad you mentioned the pen you like to use. there's so many different kinds to try (which I can't afford too) so I'll try the one you like- if I can find it. I live in a y small town. kc kc-carr@cox.net

Didn't reread this for mistakes, sorry, I have MS and am needing to lie down for awhile. my email addr. is in case you have the time or inclination to say whatever to me. Thanks for the great projects to look at. Wish I would have found your blog sooner.

Hey Kira,
I'm always reading about your latest craftiness so I thought id better enter :) And I do have an address in the US :D

Even if my number doesn't come up I think I need one of those pens - mine run out too quickly or bleed. I have yet to find one that is right for inchie-ing, journalling etc.

Congrats on a year of posting!!
