Enter My ThinkSpring Give-away!

Today a little boredom provided some inspiration. It’s February vacation week and my boys have no school. This morning as I stared at the calendar wondering what today’s big plan would be, I noticed that tomorrow is the 20th. For some reason I remember that makes 2 months since starting my Etsy shop, Tinkered Treasures. Sounds like a reason to hold a give-away to me!

Not only is it fun to win a give-away but for me it is so much fun to pack things up and make the recipient feel like they just got a present. That’s what I aim to do with every Etsy order – I wrap things in tissue paper and ribbons and always enclose a note and small gift.

If you read my blog you will know that I recently took part in a wonderful swap, just bought myself a big ol’ pack of glitter, and have been yearning for spring. So, I am combining all of this into my ThinkSpring Give-away.

The winner will receive:
  • a 4”x4” picture frame that I have painted pale spring green, decorated with floral scraps that hangs from a green polka dot ribbon; framed is decorative paper embellished with glitter (including the first-ever use of my new glitter including the glass glitter!)
  • 3 of my cottage clips in pale colors
  • Your very own treasure box, just like the ones from the swap, filled with fun little springtime crafty items

To enter please visit my Etsy shop, Tinkered Treasures, return here and leave a comment on this post about your favorite item at my shop for sale. This part is just for my own “research.”

I will close the give-away on 2/24 and announce the winner on Wednesday, 2/25.

This is my first time on your charming website - I wandered over from Daisy Cottage.
It's hard to choose from so many creative items!
The aqua frame reminds me of my mom and dad's house in the 50's when we had turquoise paint trim, so I pick that one for its beauty and nostalgic feeling.
Thanks for the giveaway - it's nice to meet you!
