Friday Fun Day... and giveaway contest

Hi Everyone,

I am bored with picking giveaway stuff this week. So I am going to make you work for it... Besides this will be fun. I promise.

First I wanted to show you Stitch:

Isn't it pretty??


For the giveaway this week we are going to have a little contest. Here are the rules:

1. Go to Play-Crafts and make a palette from a favorite photo. Make sure that the colors in the palette are colors you would actually like to have in your stash. Please make sure you have at least 5 colors in your palette. Something like this:



2. Upload the picture of the palette to our Flickr Group by Tuesday of next week  (3/19/13)

That is all  you have to do. Then I will have each of my employees pick their favorite from the palettes (see how I get out of having you all be mad at me?) and we will build fabric bundles based on those palettes. Then next Friday I will show pictures of the bundles and you all will get to vote on your favorite. Whoever get's the most votes will win a fat quarter bundle of their palette. We will also post the bundles for sale and 4 of you get bragging rights.

Go... have fun! Can't wait to see them.

  29. I learned about your contest from following Random Thoughts DO or DI blog. This palette creator is adictive. I have just added my palette to the flickr group and were amazed by everyone else's palettes. My daughter, who is almost four, even had some fun with it as well. Thanks for the giveaway! P.S. I;m glad to have happened upon your site, I'll be following in the future.
