1000 sales grand giveaway...

When I first opened my shop in February 2008 I could never have imagined that I would have made over 1000 birdies (and bunnies and monsters and monkeys OH MY!) but here we are a few years down the line and not only have I managed to turn my silly hobby into a business but I have hit 1000 sales! This means that with gallery orders, wedding cake toppers (2 birds a piece!) and craft fair sales I have made well over 1000 birdies!

This calls for a celebration... for me that means breaking out the special vanilla vodka which I have been saving but for you guys, my lovely fans, followers and friends, that means (you guessed it) a GIVEAWAY!!! Yay... and just in time for Christmas too so you shall get a lovely present in the post so I'll be strapping on my big white beard and playing santa!

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 too
2nd Prize... an owl baby of your choice and some goodies
3rd Prize... a baby robin and some ickle goodies!

To enter simply first leave a comment on my blog telling me what your favourite item in my shop is and how you would celebrate 1000 sales with me!

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!

Competition will close on the 2nd december so I can get all prizes posted out to arrive in time for Christmas! Here's to the next 1000... cheers!

Christie S said...

To be completely honest I love ALL of your birdies! They are so stinkin' cute! My fav though is a custom order you made me to look like my green-cheeked conure, Pepper. But if i have to choose one from your shop it would be the little cockatiel that's grey with a yellow head. I would celebrate by doing a happy dance...that would be horrible since I have no rhythm whatsoever...and toast the event with a glass of wine because I do not like champagne. :)

myartfullychaoticlife said...

I have been following you for a long time now and I am so excited for your continued growth & success! Congratulations! I am a huge fan of anything Hoots so of course my favorite is a hoot - I absolutely love the Needle Felted Owl Little Owl Athene Noctua Felt Bird.

Allison Franks said...

Shared your competition link on Facebook!

Melinda Wong said...

I also follow Felt Me Up Designs on Facebook. And since I forgot to mention how to celebrate your 1000th sale, how about a vacation somewhere to "research" more birds, maybe somewhere warm and tropical. It may not be the most realistic celebration idea, but it would be fun!

Melinda Wong said...

And I follow Ink Me Up Designs on Facebook, too.

orangebirdstudio said...

Ohhhh my how can I choose?! I heart the kingfisher birdie, he is absolutely gorgeous! To celebrate, I think a nice cup of tea, biccie and a sit down without having any crafty tools in your hands would be in order! After 1000 birdies, I think you deserve a break! :)

Now off to enter via Twitter and Facebook!

Carol xx

Alison Reid said...

This is my current fave although it was difficult to choose!

http://www.etsy.com/listing/74539544/needlefelted-bird-tufted-titmouse-in

Celebrating, why wine in the correct glass of course! And cake, lots of cake.

gill said...

I love your kingfisher!!
No vodka for me - I'd celebrate with a glass of damson gin (just a small one of course!)

sam-diablo said...

Woop woop! Very pleased you've reached your 1000th sale...here's to MANY more!
I'll share this on FaceBook too - good luck all (3 very lucky people'll have a nice birdy surprise this Christmas!) :)

I am already signed up for your Facebook pages. I have Twitter, but haven't "tweeted" for such a long time...don't think it would be right to tweet this just for an extra entry, so just Facebook ones for me!

Congratulations on the 1000+++ sales by the way - it's amazing and wonderful. I'm so pleased that your going full-time has paid off so well. I remember you were quite nervous about "giving up the day-job" and going solo. Well done to you, I am sooo impressed and pleased for you!

Hi, I love all your items including the octopus hairbands in your other shop, but my favourite is your blue macaw felt parrot on the golden ring perch, because i'm a part-time pirate and he would complete my pirate collection! (all pirates need a parrot). We would celebrate your 1000th sale by drinking rum and telling each other swashbuckling tales of the high seas whilst on a beach in Barbados! Arrrr!

Suzi Pirate said...

Firstly, well done on completing 1000 sales! If I were to celebrate with you, we would have a 'felt off'! You could make one of your birds and I could make one of my signature felted deer. Whoever completes the quickest wins - minus points for the number of times we stab ourselves! :-)

Anonymous said...

Love you work! It's absolutly amazing that you've made more than a 1000 birdies. I'm a big fan from the Netherlands. And I'm the happy owner of Betty the Yeti and a beautiful owl which I found on holiday in a lovely gallery in Abbotsbury! Wish you all the best and I hope you make an other 1000 of adorable creatures. Warm regards from a rainy Holland! Greetings Leeke

Leeke said...

Forgot to mention my favourite item of your shop. Well first this is Betty, but as she is no longer in the shop, cause she is living with me for quite some time. Than I'm in love with à grey barn owl! I would love to celebrate this party with you with enough bottles of Vanilla Vodka. But than I have to book a trip to the UK! Maybe....

Wow! A lot of people have entered your contest!! This is probably why you have 1000 sales!! I Love all of you realistic detailing on the owls. I can't pick just one. I personally love screech, barn, and snow owls best. Of course, you can never go wrong with baby owls either ;)

Anywho, Congrats on the milestone! And here's to another 1000!! I wish you the best of luck!! :)

I've always loved your wee cockateil! http://www.etsy.com/listing/62443835/needlefelted-bird-punky-cockatiel-real

He is ACE!

I'd celebrate a 1000 sales (hopefully I'll get there one day!) by making a nest in my living room and living like a wee chick for a day. I'd demand food and treats to be brought to me. And a golden crown with "1000" on it for me to wear.

Great work- keep it up! :)

My favourite is the cockatiel http://www.etsy.com/listing/62443835/needlefelted-bird-punky-cockatiel-real and I would celebrate by dressing up in a brid costume and consuming a glass or two of wine.
