Facebook page & a GIVEAWAY :)

Hello dear crafty friends! This Crafty Fox has finally joined the realm of Facebook Pages. You can find us here.
And to celebrate this small step forward, I do believe we should have a giveaway, wouldn't you agree?

I was pondering what to post for my dear readers delight ... a zipper bag? a mug rug? But really, the heart and soul of This Crafty Fox are not the quilts, bags, and other delightful things I find to make online.... but the little creatures that come to life sometimes by accident, sometimes by pure whimsy :)

Sooo... in that spirit, I am offering you one of my Anger Management Aardvarks

These dear little creatures started as my version of a pattern in "Softies only a mother could love" and blossomed into these larger, multi-colored crazy creations. They became the mascots of our cubicle at work... good for awkward situations (ie. the Awkward Aardvark), anger management (yes, they will bite people for you), and really just for a good laugh.

So what do you think? They may not be for everyone but if you want one of these toothy little pals to come live at your house, here are 3 chances to win (leave a separate comment for each thing you do below for multiple chances to win!):

1. "Like"(aka click the button haha) "This Crafty Fox"'s page on Facebook and then post a comment here letting me know that you did
2. Become a follower of this blog - and let me know that you did (there should be a follow link at the top of the page, if not, you can follow me in google reader or in blogger and that counts - just let me know you did)
3. And for a bonus comment - answer the following survey question: Do you buy handmade online? If so, what type of things tempt you? Would love to get your feedback as I start considering a small Etsy store with some of my creations of all types.

Please make sure you have an email address attached to your profile or leave it in the comment area so that I can contact you if you win.

This giveaway will close Thursday at 9pm EST - the winner to be announced Friday morning and chosen by Mr. Random Number Generator to be fair.  I'm sorry but at this time the giveaway is only open to readers with a US address for shipping. .

Thanks for reading and good luck!

ps. You will have the choice of the following colors for your Aardvark, which will be custom made for you once the winner is chosen: Pink, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown

I don't like to think of myself as an angry person, but I truly need one of these. Are the teeth nice and sharp? :P

1. Liked your facebook page (actually love it, hehe, but that wasn't an option).
2. Subscribed to your blog on Google Reader.
3. Do I buy handmade online? Of course! You should see all the awesome items with which my etsy friend tempt me! I am so weak....

I liked you on FB. (BTW, you don't have to ship anything. You can give it to the Schwiegereltern at church)

Amanda said...

I follow your blog. I hope you wanted separate comments. That is the norm.

Do I buy handmade online? hahah... oh, do I ever! I can't tell you how many times I've heard, "Oh, that is so cute. You must be crafty." Nope, but I sure know my way around etsy. (btw, do you know about let me know if you want an invite. If you have an invite, you get $$ for joining). The first thing that I want to buy is two of those pillows... the wheel ones (sprocket). I also love anything with a monogram. Oh, and one of those maps made out of scraps. They don't have any on etsy. I know. I looked. Sorry. I'm going on. I guess for now, I'll just settle for a pink dog (with green teeth and a purple eye). Eliza would dig it.

I somehow didn't see your giveaway the last time I was here! I buy handmade online, and am totally tempted by simple illustrations of foxes, and handmade clothing. And, I like stuffed animals for my little girl. I just bought a knitted dragon on a site in NZ and it is way too cute for words (although my little girl could care less!)

I can't wait to see what you stock in your shop!
