It’s May Give-Away Day

There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but there is a free Recycled Envelope and Stationery Set being given away here!

Hello everyone! It’s Robyn here, and I’m participating in the Sew, Mama, Sew! May Give-Away Day and offering up one of my snappy stationery sets. These items are a favorite in my etsy shop and a favorite of mine to make. It combines all of my favorite things, paper, art, design, and craft.

Paper: Each stationery set is compiled of 10 envelopes made from my personal (and constantly growing collection) of old papers, anything from old calendars, magazines, posters, massive clipart books, maps, etc.
Art: The art part comes in with my eye and personal aesthetics. Each paper and set is hand selected for awesomeosity by yours truly. Not every paper would make a great envelope, ya know?
Design: Each set comes with 20 pieces of stationery designed by myself, on a high quality linen recycled paper, oooh, la la.
Craft: Oh yes, I make each and every envelope, cut down by hand, assemble them with pride, include 10 mailing labels, and sealed up in plastic, (even the plastic is partially recycled product)

Who doesn’t love mail? You show me a person who doesn’t like mail, and I’ll show you a neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie!

So, here’s the scoop: This giveaway offer is open until the end of May 2009. To enter, just leave a comment on this post (just say hi, or tell me who you would write to if you won) and all comments will be entered into a random drawing. There will be two winners. Yes, that means TWO SETS ARE BEING GIVEN AWAY COMPLETELY FREE, to two lucky winners!

Also, please scoot on over to the Sew Mama Sew blog to find out all the other blogs that are participating in the May Giveaway Day.

  1. Hi Robayre… Looks like I popped into twitter at the right moment. Thanks for sponsoring a give-a-way. You know I love to write letters. I’m not sure who I would write to. I think I will leave that a mystery and look forward to the first person who asks for a letter next. I love your sets. Hope your summer will be wonderful. ox joon

    I’m close enough to the riverwalk that I’d love to go track down your found art. But I imagine it’s already found a home. :-)

    Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  8. Hi! Thanks for giving away your beautiful paper goods! I’d write my in-laws most likely… they’d definitely appreciate your stationary, and they don’t live close, like my family does!

  9. i would love to win! i would write to my college friend john-paul, who now lives in japan. we have always communicated through snail-mail, not emails or by phone, so i always look for interesting material to write him with. :)

  10. Thanks for a great giveaway. I’m loving the stationary. If I won I’d use it to write to my Grandama and my Aunts. I have been trying to get better about writing letters and would love to use such pretty stationary to do it.

    I would write to my best friend from school–I’ve known her since I was 5 and she is always the person I write to when I have great stationery!

  12. I would send letters to everyone who has moved away from this city over the years! Like most people, I love sending and receiving mail!

  17. Awesome stuff. I’m intrigued by your post above this one. Mini art prints, I wish you were giving one of those away :D. I’m very fearful of ticks too, my husband laughs at me, but they are sick!

  18. Sounds great! I’ll be writing to my cousin next, as she’s on holidays in Europe…well, a working holiday anyway!

  20. These are so amazing. I would probably use them to write thank you notes to my clients- I’m a wedding photographer. That way they would know they didn’t hire just any boring old photographer!

  21. I think it’s a heck of a shame more people don’t write to each other these days. I tried to get into art-mail once, but my artistic skills are practically nil so it didn’t work out, alas.

  22. I love your stationary. I’d write to my sister, who I am going to be visiting for a week next month for the first time in years.

    Hope you pick me!

  27. Love the cards – I would send my grandma a note – even though she lives in the area – she loves to get mail! Thanks!

  28. I’d love to write a letter to my Grandma and mail it to her in Heaven. She was a great letter writer…

  29. I write letters to my aunt all the time and she really appreciates hand made things so these would be great!

  31. Love, love the stationary you are making…

    I would use it to write letters to friends, my daughter and maybe a new pen pal…

  32. Thank you for offering up such a lovely give away. It is so nice to see people recycling materials out there, it also lovely to see that writing letters and sending it via snail mail is not yet a thing of the past. I think people get so caught up in our new digital world that we often forget the simple pleasures!!!!

    Thanks again

  46. I almost got goosebumps after looking at this blog, it’s so creative and awesome. Now I must find a way to convince the Blog Gods to remove all other names so I can be guaranteed one of these sets! With it, I would write people that I know around the nation or perhaps would save it and send it to people locally instead of postcards when I’m on vacation.

  47. Love These! My father is moving in a month away from me in California to Oklahoma and since he does not own a computer and vows to NEVER have one, I would use these to write to him! He would LOVE it! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  48. Depending on what you sent me if I won…
    either my daughter would write to her grandmother and friends or I would right to my friends in Sweden.
