It's giveaway day! Some of my sponsors have offered up their services/goods for ONE LUCKY READER to enjoy!
All you have to do is leave a comment below sharing your best summer memory thus far (or winter if you're in the southern hemisphere) and I'll choose a winner on Monday. Be sure to take one last look at all of my lovely sponsors this weekend before the new month starts. Check out the prizes below!
Hey there! I'm Michaela of Some Things Michaela Made. I currently attend the Cleveland Institute of Art studying Animation and Fiber & Material Studies. My work spans several mediums, from collage to silkscreen to stop motion to embroidery, and whatever else I can get my hands on. I like making things, and I need to make a living, so this summer I started my Etsy shop called Golden Cat Studios where I sell all sorts of marvelous things.
Most of my items feature free motion machine embroidery, in which I move an embroidery hoop around my sewing machine needle and draw. This month, I am giving away a Custom 8" Embroidery Portrait (1 Color), valued at $65. Based on a photo you submit and color and style choices (gestural or illustrative or realistic, etc), I will create a custom piece for you, which I can either hem for you to frame, or frame in a wooden embroidery hoop. I will contact the winner about their choices and create the piece within 2 weeks.
Blue Corduroy makes and sells clothing and accessories by the sea. I use recycled vintage linens in combination with other prints. I am so happy when I think about a little girl wearing one of my handmade dresses and creating her own relationship with something made from the past.
Each item I make is one of a kind. I live with my husband and two daughters on the central coast of California, where we play at the beach as often as we can.
Blue Corduroy is giving away $20 shop credit.
