It’s Giveaway Day again

Welcome newcomers and old friends visiting from the SewMamaSew Giveaway Day. My name is Robyn and I’m an inspiration junkie. I always say I have my hands in all areas of the arts and crafts. For example, I work as a print designer, and just today, I came home and began working with my handspun yarn, and then did some painting on canvas, and finally this evening worked on binding a book.

Last spring I participated in my first SewMamaSew Giveaway Day and gave away 2 sets of my handmade Recycled Envelope and Stationery Sets. It was a huge success with 150 comments left on that one post. My stationery sets are a hit and so I’d like to continue with that, but shake it up somewhat. Please read below to find out how to qualify and win.

Here’s the scoop: One lucky winner will receive one of my Recycled Envelope and Stationery Sets AND one of my Reproduction Prints from my Etsy store. To enter, just leave a comment on this post (just say hi and let me know which reproduction you would choose if you won). Leave your comment before Sunday, December 6th 2009, at 8 p.m. (CST) at which point a winner will be drawn randomly from all the comments. This drawing is also available for those outside of the United States.

Each stationery set is compiled of 10 handmade self-sealing envelopes made from my personal (and constantly growing collection) of old papers, calendars, magazines, posters, massive vintage clipart books, maps, etc. Each set also comes with 20 pieces of stationery designed by myself, on a high quality recycled paper. Oooh, la la! I recently redesigned the stationery with a breath of fresh air. Finally, each set also has 10 labels so that you can easily mail them. Come on, who doesn’t love sending and receiving handwritten letters? It’s a welcome break from the bills and junk mail.






My reproduction prints are all printed professionally from my original artwork. You can click on each one to visit its own page or click on this link to browse all of them at once.

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out what I have to offer. You can also find me on flickr, etsy and twitter. Please come by again, let’s be friends.

  3. “Snow Trees” is wonderful. That’s my pick. Thanks for your informative blog, inspiring work, and this chance to win something!

  8. Hello!!!
    I discovered your blog through the Giveaway but now i’ll be coming back often because I can’t get enought of looking at beautiful things.
    i love all the prints, but if i had to choose a favourite it would be the “adventure” one, or the “create”, or the “farm”, or the… you get the idea…

    a kiss from Portugal!

  9. Oh you images are lovely. I would definitely pick the snow trees repro, but you have so many wonderful ones to choose from.

  10. hi! beautiful work! I would choose the “Today Can Be An Adventure”. That is something my mom started to say to me when I was little and I’m trying to pass on to my son. Everyday can be an adventure – you just have to look for the little joys! Beautiful!

  11. Of COURSE I have to enter yours. Hehe. I truly loved writing letters to John on your recycled stationery. It made letter-writing even more fun for me. I think it would be a toss up between Night Scene and the Create reproduction print. I love both!

  12. Oh, I love the bunny and the stump prints, especially. I love finding new ways to recycle all the calendars and greeting cards that I just can’t bear to part with because “they might come in handy someday.” Thanks for sharing!

  13. Hi there, I love your note cards they are adorable! I would probably pick the snow tree reproduction . .. or the farm . . . hard to say :)

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. Hi! I love both the rabbit one and the hibiscus blossoms. And I especially love the ornaments in the more recent post. 3 hours for one?!? wow. They look spectacular, though!

  15. I Love the snow trees. I am really missing snow this year for some crazy reason. Living on the east coast of the states we are sure to see none but it would be a nice surprise. You cards are wonderful too.

  16. hi

    my fave print is definitely today can be an adventure – i echo the sentiments wholeheartedly!

  18. Oh, this is a great give-away. I’m pretty partial to the “Tree Stump” reporduction, but I also like the “You’re my Favorite.” One of those two is MY favorite, but I can’t tell which one right now.

  19. Oh I love them all, but my fav’s are “Today can be an adventure” and the barn one. Thanks for the chance at winning, Love your stuff and artwork. Merry Christmas and Have a Blessed Day.

  20. Perfect timing — my friend and I recently agreed to skip the emails and go back to old school hand-written letters. But I cannot find real stationary in my town! Even the STATIONARY SHOP doesn’t sell any!!!

    I would love it if Theo would come to live with me! Or, rather, a reproduction of a picture of him ;)

  21. i absolutely LOVE the tree stump :)
    i’m so happy that i came across this giveaway. i definitely need to follow you because i love what you do!
    i’m not a super crafty sewer, instead i dabble with paper as well.
    happy holidays! thanks for being a part of this giveaway… i would’ve never found you otherwise!

  22. This is such a wonderful giveaway! Thanks so much! I looked at your reproductions and I liked them all but if I had to choose one I think it would be the “Today can be an Adventure” I need to remember that more often!

    Thanks so much!

  23. I’d choose Snow Trees. Love the Kusadama paper ornaments – I’m filing that away to try when the kiddos are bigger.

  24. love them all, but the tree stump made my heart flutter today! thanks for the chance to win. singinsweet2002(at)yahoo(dot)com.

  25. I would choose Theo!
    I love your pendants and circles 3 is really beatiful too. I bookmarked your shop!

  26. I love your cards. And your art is amazing as well. It was hard to choose, but my favorites are “Today can be an Adventure” and “Wing and a Prayer”.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. Great shop! It was hard to pick, but I’d have to go with Today can be an Adventure. I like You are my favorite the most, but where would I put it? With two daughters, it couldn’t go in one of their rooms — that would send the other into therapy for life! I guess I could put it by my stash of chocolate. Yum. But, that would send my whole family into therapy.

    Let’s keep my family out of more therapy than we already need. If I win, I’ll take the Adventure print.

    Thanks for the chance to enter!

  28. I love your giveaway. I love snailmail to give and get. What a great way to give. If I won I would choose Hibiscus Flower Reproduction Print.

  29. You are a favorite of mine to follow on Google reader! Thanks for sharing your inspirations, as it is pretty inspiring. ;)

    Love all your items, but if I had to pick a print, I’d choose the Snow Trees.

  30. I really am not sure I can pick just one! I love your shop & everything in it! I really like the hibiscus flowers, the snow trees and the night reproduction. I absolutely love your yoyo pics! How fun!
