A Magnetic Etsy Giveaway

* UPDATE: This giveaway is no longer accepting new entries. The winner will be announced soon!*

I have to admit, I haven't gotten into the whole Etsy phenomenon yet (buying or selling). It's not that I'm not interested - quite the opposite, actually. I'm afraid once I start looking at all of the shops and all of the cool handmade stuff, I'll want to spend too much time and money there. And someday, I think it'd be cool to have my own shop, I'm just not sure what I'd sell yet. That's kind of important to figure out first.

ANYway. My talented and crafty friend Marleah, on the other hand, does have an Etsy shop which she recently re-stocked with a variety of unique handmade items. Here's a sampling of what you'll find at Marleah's Creations:

This cozy scarf, measuring 5" x 60", will keep you warm and stylish! (And those of us who deal with these crazy harsh winters can never have enough scarves, am I right??)

These multi-tasking crocheted cloths can be used for dish-washing,
face-washing, or even as potholders!

This set of eight (8) glass magnets was created using an honest-to-goodness atlas.
Small yet strong, the magnets are housed in a sleek, silver tin.

Here's the really good part... To help get the word out about her shop, Marleah has offered to give away a Magnet Set to one of my lucky readers! She was even nice enough to send me a set of my own just for hosting the giveaway. The problem is, I like both designs and can't decide which one to keep! SO, being the indecisive person I am... I'm going to let the winner decide for me.  :)

How cool are these??

Robin's Nest - Sophisticated stripes and leaf patterns in blue, brown, & cream

Sherbet - Funky stripes and dots in orange and white

(I must apologize, my pictures are nowhere near as sharp as Marleah's -- just imagine these taken with her camera instead.) 

If you're like me and the mismatched magnets currently on your fridge are just the free, flimsy, fugly promotional ones (see Exhibit A), then you could really use a magnet makeover (see Exhibit B)!


Exhibit A
Exhibit B

Imagine how they would spruce up an office filing cabinet or a magnetic memo board, too. They look just as good when they're not actually being used to hold anything up!


Now, here's your chance to score one of these marvelous magnet sets for FREE!  
  • Leave a comment on this post and specify which set you'd prefer if you win (Robin's Nest or Sherbet). As always, be sure to include a valid e-mail address.
  • BONUS - To earn an extra entry, just visit Marleah's Creations and leave a separate comment on this post with a link to your favorite item in her shop.
  • Entries will be accepted until Tuesday, February 15, at 12 p.m. (CST). This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada residents only.
Easy-peasy, right? That's how I roll.

And hey, even if you don't win, there are other cool magnet designs in Marleah's shop that you can grab (for yourself or perhaps a fun gift for co-workers) for only $10, which definitely won't break the bank, am I right?

Good luck everyone!

OOOOhhhh, I'm the first!! :) And I would love the Sherbert - the color makes me think summer is right around the corner and here in Central NY it's not a very pleasant site out there so that's how I need to think!! :)

Thank you!

The Sherbert is really cheerful, but I think I'd have to go with Robin's nest!

Salleefur/Jesslyn/Jesster said...

They're both delightful - but I can't resist the sunny cheerfulness of the Sherbet.

Salleefur/Jesslyn/Jesster said...

I visited Marieah's Creations (and Etsy "hearted" it.) I love the Cumulus Scarf in Kaleidoscope and British Isle Magnet Set that you have featured above, but I think my most favorite is the Picnic Magnet Set - they just radiate "summer" "picnics"....
