The New Nest Housewarming Party Giveaway...

I'm all settled down in my new home... I've nearly found the floor of the studio and am ready to start making some new designs especially some Inkmeup lovelies... but wait... I feel I should share this momentous occasion with someone special... you guys!!! I've hung up the bunting and laid out some snacks and treats and now you're all invited to my house warming party...No house warming is complete without games and no games are good games without PRIZES!!! I have decided to pick 3 lucky winners because my lovely facebook followers decided they would like more chances to win rather than one huge prize stash.

1st Prize... a hoot of your choice and a nice bag of Inkmeup goodies including a lavender bag, print and a note book!
2nd Prize... a tweet or pet or real bird of your choice and some Inkmeup goodies including a lavender bag and a print!
3rd Prize... a teeny tweet and, of course, some inky goodies including a lavender bag!

All winners will receive loads of postcards and goodies too.To enter simply first leave a comment on my blog telling me what your favourite item in my shop is and what you are going to bring to my housewarming party... it could be a special cake, an interesting guest... a great party CD...a pink unicorn... just help me get my party started... this is all you need to do to be entered once...For extra entries then if you can leave a Twitter comment mentioning this blog post with link @feltmeupdesigns or become a fan at facebook ... and if you want an extra chance you can become an Inkmeup facebook fan too... If you do all 3 you get 3 bonus entries. Just make sure you come back here and tell me in a separate comment that you have twittered and facebooked, if you are already a facebook fan just let me know to get your extra entry!The winners will be picked at random using a random number generator... I do read all your comments and they are moderated for naughty words so they won't appear immediately. Winner will be contacted within 3 days of close of competition so don't forget to leave me a way to contact you a facebook, etsy or twitter username will do... don't leave an email unless it is in the form of myname(at)hotmaildotcom... this is so spam bots don't get your email address and spam you!

Woo hoo(t)! I continue to cover the snowy owl hoot. :)

I tweeted, and I'm facebooked!

Miss Rebecca said...

I love the tiny hoot! http://www.etsy.com/listing/65442085/tweet-hoot-little-snowy-owl-in-natural

But I also love the punky series!

I would bring a disco ball to the party!!

Miss Rebecca said...

Was already a Felt Me up fan! Now I'm an ink me up fan!

Oh I hope I can win :D I never win anything especially this cute! *fingers and toes crossed)

My favorites are the cockatiels (I'm biased because I have two)

And I would bring my two rescued cockatiels and my Quaker parrot to your house warming party. :D

Can't wait to see your new works XD

Your owl's totally rock. If I have to pick one I'd go for the little Tawny owl.

For the housewarming party I'd bring some homemade chocolate brownies :)

I retweeted your initial tweet... if that makes sense :P @craftywhoopidoo

Oh and I forgot to mention in my previous comment that I'm the one bringing my World famous fruit flan and cream and the special can of evap milk for me. (Mine! All mine!)

Carmen said...

I'm already a Facebook Ink Me Up fan :P

I've just thought - I could also bring my Black Lace cd so we could all do the birdie song together - most appropriate don't you think?

Seriously - I do have that cd. *g*

I soooo want to win one of your tweets to keep the one that I bought from you company

Lizzie said...

Ah, so hard to decide... I looked at every little burst in your shop... I love the wedding cake toppers, also the flamingoes, robin, budgie, parrot... Sigh... But I decided my very favourite is the Burrowing Owl. He's ace!

I would bring my red Valentine Tweet and Blue Budgie Tweet to the party - they would be so happy to see you and all their Tweety friends!

I'm sure I'm a follower on FB - both shops... But I will double check when I'm back at my pc!

Enjoy your party and I hope you'll be very happy in your new home (all of you!)

dawn said...

My favourite items in your shop are the owls, the toucan, and the Macaw :)

For the party, I would bring, some cupcakes, I made some yesterday, and they were so good, I didn't even butter ice them, and gingerbread stars, as I'm good at those. I would also bring Pimms, and my giant cocktail recipe book, and my cocktail shaker. Hmmm let me see, a pinata, and I would bring my mum, because today is Mother's day :)

I'm already a fan on facebook :)

"ethel" said...

Oh crikey! How to choose? I love the shocking pink & green tweets, but the owls are fab. However, as a massive Mighty Boosh fan it would have to be a flamingo to remind me of Vince stalking Pete Neon. :)
I'm a friend to Felt and Ink on Facebook and am off to Tweet now :)

"ethel" said...

Have Tweeted too. :)

I'd have to bring an 80s mixtape to the party. We could all dress-up and remember our youth :)

FairlyGirly said...

I love this spring lovebird, http://www.etsy.com/listing/68060236/zingy-green-and-shocking-pink-needle great colours.

I will bring some bubbly to get things going!!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Glenys said...

I like the Christmas Tweet Hoot Little Snowy Owl in Natural White With Red Santa Hat. I don't think I live anywhere near you to make it to your new house for the party but if I could I would most probably bring myself early to help you out and go home late to help you clean. So, can I still enter?

My fav is either one of the owls (I love 'em ALL) or the gorgeously handsome Mr Magpie.

Now, for your housewarming, I would of course bring a mahoosive cake so you could dive right into it. I think you'd prefer a chocolate cake, complete with luscious runny chocolate icing.

kasey said...

I tweeted, facebooked both sites!

I would bring a jar of pickles, a dvd of Labyrinth and a few of my needle felted goblins and a pair of red and white jammies for us both to wear! lol!

Rachel said...

oh my! OK I was already a feltmeup fan on fb; I've just become an inkmeup fan; I've scheduled a tweet for 3pm (have gone a bit twitter crazy this morning so thought I'd give people a break from my witterings!)
What would I bring to your housewarming? Smoked salmon blinis and a bag of paper chains to put up!

Rachel said...

Oh and my favourite things in your shop are the budgies!

Claire Ogden Designs said...

I just wanted to tell you that I think you are a very talented lady and your work is amazing. I adore the owls they have so much character but your other work is just as beautiful. I love the fact that it shows how passionate you are in the pieces you create and I only hope that one day my work is as recognised and I have all those followers too.

I would bring to your house warming party a vintage tea set and we can have a tea party with cakes and chocolates wearing my lovely bohemian bridal tiaras I am currently developing! I wish you lots of love and happiness for your new home and congratulations on such beautiful work x x

Sarah said...

I just love all your items but I think my favorite one would be the bright red big heart Owl.

I think I would make some lovely pink cup cakes to bring to your housewarming party. Sounds like fun.

Anji* said...

My absolute favourite (amongst many) is Squawk the scarlet macaw :)

pigletpip said...

I love your Tweet Hoot White and Brown Barn Owl - so adorable! To the party I'd bring along my Mum's 11 month old cat who could entertain everyone with her mischief; everyone would laugh at her and especially so at her funny meow and 'purt' noises she makes. She'd also help tidy up afterwards, i.e. trying to polish off any left over food and investigate everything!

Tracy said...

I just can't believe you'd make me choose just ONE thing from your shop. I love them all! If I absolutely HAD to narrow down the choices, maybe I'd be a bit more disposed toward the owls, but they're all so perfect I couldn't choose just one!

And I will gladly bring the wine and a Spirit Level to help get those pictures hung nice and straight!
