1200 Sales Giveaway

GIVEAWAY TIME... YAY!

We passed the 1200 Etsy sales mark and I am feeling "well chuffed" as we say in Yorkshire... in fact I so happy that I thought I might spread it about with a lovely Father's Day giveaway. I spent a day with my Dad and Grandad yesterday so I couldn't put the competition up. Dad found these scarecrows and leapt out of the car for a sneaky photo!

I have decided to pick 2 lucky winners to celebrate 1200 sales.
1st Prize... In honor of Father's Day a large feltmeupdesigns owl and a fluffy owl baby of your choice and a nice bag of goodies too*
2nd Prize... an owl baby or mini owl of your choice and some goodies




To enter simply first leave a comment on this blog post telling me what your favourite item in my Etsy shop is ... that simple!

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! (but if you only want to enter once just leave a comment on the blog)

I do read all your comments and they are moderated for naughty words so they might not 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!

The competition will close on Saturday 23rd June and the winner will be picked by random number generator (aka John, my lovely boyfriend!)


*does not include the BIG barn owls, don't get cheeky now

Exciting Felty!
I like the natural brown fluffy owlet best. But those russet ones in this post are equally gorgeous...

I have twittered,and liked FB page (which was a bit odd, thought twas already liked, I did wonder why I wasn't getting any Tweet/Hoot feeds...) And done this.

Sue said...

oooo so hard to choose but my favourite would probably be the little grey owl >> http://www.etsy.com/listing/75698193/needlefelted-bird-grey-owl-baby

I love all the "realistic" birds, especially the owls with their great faces. Maybe my favourite non-owl is the chickadee, as we see so many of them around here. Thanks for the giveaway, and congratulations on the sales!

My most bestest favourite of your lovely gorgeousness is the robin wreath - I am saving my pennies for one for our family this Christmas - Daddy, Mummy and two babies! (my daughter age 3 thinks we should save for a proper fireplace so that Father Christmas can come down the chimney though!)
Thanks lovely

First of all congrats on 1200 sales. Oh my I'm in love with all your owls. The tawny owl is super cute but I would be in love with them all. I am a fb fan and am going to share on fb right now.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/101872999/tufty-red-cardinal-bird-needlefelted

I got to say, as a feltie fan who resides "across the pond" as British people seem to say, it's exciting to see the american residents take the stage once in a while. British people seem to have a monopoly on awesome things, from Doctor Who to Sherlock Holmes, so thank you for acknowledging our bird species as well. ;)

Lizzie said...

Ha! Now I am tempted to write naughty words, just to check....

"Naughty words!"

Anyhooo... congrats on your 1200 sales - that's really very fabulous and amazing; I am so pleased for you!!

And my favourite item iiiiissss

tick
tick
tick

yawn... (why do they do that on telly, it's so boring?)

You know, I can't decide really. I was going to say this little chap - http://www.etsy.com/listing/94723888/owl-baby-needlefelted-bird-cute-and - the ginger owlet,

But then I saw this - http://www.etsy.com/listing/78215984/needle-felted-bird-spectacled-owl-chick
- the baby spectacled owl...

and of course, there are always robins...

and other tweets and hoots..

Why do you ask such hard questions, Melanie?

It better be little Ginger. I do love those fuzzy little ginger owl babies very much.

Lizzie said...

So, I re-tweeted your own tweet and then I made sure by making a tweet of my own. So now you should get all of my Twitter followers storming over here to leave millions of comments (which means I probably won't win... but then I will comfort myself with my existing Tweets...)

Anyhoo....

Lizzie said...

...and I am already a follower of Feltmeup on Facebook...

Lizzie said...

...and of Inkmeup too...

Stephanie Lawrence said...

I can't choose just one I love them all but I'd have to say the owls are my favorite. Probably the little brown fluffy ones! I'm always watching for contests and hoping I'll win one of your sweet little birds some day <3 keep up the great work!!

Kerryn said...

OOOO such exciting candy! It is so hard to say a favourite as I adore so many of them, but the owls are my faves. If I was pushed it would be the barn owls as they are too cute, which is why I bought that one first. Next on my list is the wise grey owl. The detail is stunning! Oh and the cockatoos!! .... I could go on and on.

Kerryn said...

WOW what a decision, they're all such lovely creations.
The turquoisey blue budgie is so like one we had and loved.
The tufted Titmouse is so gorgeous.
Love the cool Rockchick.
The Gingersnap baby owl is really cute.
Suppose I should stop somewhere really.
:D
Been a fan for quite a while!

Anonymous said...

I love your creations. I found your site while I was researching needle felting, as I am new to felting.
I am a fan on Facebook, and my favorite Etsy bird is the baby owl with curly locks. A second is the owl family in the wreath. It's terrible that you are making us choose a favorite!

Ooh how exciting, but so hard to choose a favourite. It would probably have to be a barn owl, or the toucan, or that grey african parrot- he's adorable! :)

Dillymum said...

I have liked Inkmeup Designs on FB too :D

Jsteven1966 said...

Another Facebook fan :)

Hard to choose which one is my favourite as they all have such wonderful characters.

Would love to own one of your owls as I am a Brown Owl at 3rd Wideopen Brownies in Newcastle, and even girls who don't go to my Brownies but know me, call me Brown Owl.

My mum also has a soft spot for owls.

But I think I would have to say the Blue Tit is my favourite. They have such wonderful little features and are such characters.

Was saddened yesterday though when I had to empty out our nest box as our resident Blue Tit babies had died. :'(

So I will be by your Etsy shop sometime to buy some gifts.

veryinviting said...

It's so difficult to choose just one favourite from your Etsy shop as they're all so cute!! You are very talented and the detail in something so tiny is incredible. I love looking at your new creations on your Facebook Page.
If I had to pick just one, it'd be Needlefelted Bird Wise Grey Owl Hoot Little Owl in Dusky Grey.

Brilliant competition!
I was already a fan on Facebook (hence hearing of the competition!)and i was also already a fan of your ink page too (I love your prints - especially the kitty ones) and I would tweet, but I have banned myself from Twitter as it is a big pit of procrastination!
My favourite items from your etsy shop are, ofc, your owls. There was a little horned one that particularly caught my eye, but i also love the wedding toppers (not that I'm getting married) but i love that they match and are so sweet!
If I am lucky enough *crosses fingers* to win you can contact me at heartstitch(at)hotmail(dotcom)

Lorraine said...

Oh my! They are all so..so huggable!! But that Punky Sulphur Crested Cockatoo has some charm and chutzpah!!

I love the mummy barn owl with the 2 baby owls (as I am a mum with 2 kids!) but since it's not barn owls ;) I like the little tawny owl, http://www.etsy.com/listing/83074943/needlefelted-owl-little-tawny-owl-in, it reminds me of when I was a brownie (a young version of a girl scout really) and our leader's name was Tawny Owl :) My email is inner-voice(at)hotmail.com

I love the cockatiels, just like my little Mog. The day the cat along the road got in was the saddest. Been 7 years since he went to birdy heaven, but I still miss him on my shoulder, when I washed the dishes.

Helen-S said...

Very tricky decision... I love the curly owl babies but I think my absolute favourite (today anyway) is the tufted titmouse - just love that expression!
