Super Awesome Anniversary Giveaway & Sale

Well, that's quite enough stalling from me. With my blog's first anniversary fast approaching and my third year on etsy next month, now is the time for my big event! This event is just my way of saying thank you to everyone who has visited, read my ramblings and offered their opinions and whatnot. I've decided to go with a two pronged attack to the event.

The first prong is a SALE. Now don't get too excited, it's just a small one. My entire inventory is on sale 15% off until my anniversary on March 17th. This sale will NOT be noted at my shop, it is only for those of you who visit my blog as a thank you for all your help and support. You must mention "anniversary" in the notes to seller to receive the discount which will be refunded after you pay through paypal. If you forget to mention the sale, you don't get the discount, simple as a dimple.

The second prong is a GIVEAWAY and I've decided to take a slightly different approach to the standard blog giveaway, but let me first lay down the entry options for this sucker.

The Rules:
-Visit my etsy shop and peruse my tatted offerings.
-Pick your favorite item from the shop and then come back here to this blog post, and leave a comment telling me about what you liked (if you can't find anything perhaps this giveaway is not for you.)
-Your comment profile must include contact information, if it doesn't be sure to leave a valid email address in your comment or your entry is void.(if I can't tell you that you won, what good is entering)

Want more chances to win...well, I've got a few

-For an additional entry, tweet this giveaway, then leave a comment with a link to your tweet (you can follow me on twitter too...if you want)

-For another additional entry, blog about this giveaway and sale on your own blog (complete with links and pictures), and come back and leave a link to your post.

-Finally for two entries, buy something from me (don't forget the sale!) and come back and comment with your purchase. (this is the flagrant self promotion portion of the event)

-This contest is open to residents of the Earth only, seriously all humans welcome, aliens not so much.

-Contest ends on Tuesday March 17th. Winners will be announced by that Friday.

Did I say winners... plural? Yes, I did. Here's where my giveaway is a bit different. You see, I always found it a bit anti productive to plug someone else's giveaway thus reducing my chances of winning. What if, however, more entrants meant more prizes? Here's my solution, for every 30 unique individuals entering another prize will be added to the list. So if 31 people enter, I will add a second prize, 61 a third and if by some chance 91 or more people enter a fourth and final prize.

I know these sound like extremely ambitious numbers given my average blog traffic and that is the whole point. The more people enter, the better the prizes are for everyone so I'm hoping that this is the proper incentive for a bit of a viral effect, I guess we'll see. Oh, right the prizes...

First up is a Fully Bloomed pendant in any color of the winners choice. This is the only guaranteed prize.

With entrant number 31, I will add the Viva La Reine necklace to the pot.





With entrant number 61, a pair of The Queen's Feet barefoot sandals are included.








The last prize will only be added if 91 or more unique individuals enter the giveaway and it's a good one, a pair of In Bloom Ankle Corsets!
So that's it, remember the more people that enter the better the prizes get and this is not counting the extra entries each person can get, just actual people. If you want a chance at all four, you best help me spread the word about the sale and giveaway. I will make an announcement every time a new prize level has been achieved. You only have just over a week, so you better get on it!

***More prizes will be added, every 30 entries another In Bloom pendant will go into the prize pool***

So hard as I would love everything! But, I love Queens's Feet: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21614135

With summer coming (in my mind at least) I would love these.

Patty said...

Just retweeted also, you should get a copy I believe. :)

aquariann said...

Wow, so tough to choose a favorite of yours! You have such unique and amazing creations. It'd be a dream to wear one of your masks to a masquerade ball, especially A Kind Of Pale Jewel: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20940605

aquariann said...

I tweeted! (And I already follow you :)

http://twitter.com/aquariann

Olorle said...

Totally love the masks, but my favorite is the awesome Order of Ecclesia collar: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18844567
It makes me happy. Good luck with the contest!

Aden said...

I am having the same trouble picking just *one* thing that I love. But I have to say The Countess Was Victorious won out over the others.

TattingChic said...

I love the black Victoriana necklace. The crystal in the middle is so pretty. It was fun perusing your shop. I'm already a follower of your blog. :)

What a grand social experiment! Can't wait to watch the results.

It's a firm tie for my favorite pretty in your shop - The Countess Was Victorious choker and the Order of Ecclesia collar.

And I just tweeted!

Sara said...

Of course I had to enter!

I love it all, but I LOVE The Countess Was Victorious. I little sparkle is always a good thing!

I tweeted you, too! http://twitter.com/vikki77

Esty Swag said...

Congrats, your submission made it on Etsy-Swag! We tweeted away.

Oh and our favorite can be found here is the Quadra Tatted Bracelet!

yarnplayer said...

I really like the "Happiness in Slavery" bracelet. I'd like to wear it while playing my cello in concert! The slave theme totally fits, since I'm an amatuer cellist and I don't get paid, LOL.

Your things are all so creatively elegant!

ArtSnark said...

tough to choose just 1. Have to go with A Kind Of Pale Jewel.

Alison Allen said...

They're all so beautiful! I must say my favorite is a necklace called Portrait of an Elegant Lady.

BelaDonna said...

Your work is Beautiful!
I'm now following you blog and twitter :)

mi495 said...

I like the Grand Daisy Tatted Scarf.

AJ said...

The Queen's Feet are my current favorite! I just love my green ones, they look so awesome on :D

I also Twittered this!

Diana said...

Hi Pam! What an amazing giveaway. You really know how to go all out. Plus, I love the new contest parameters; usually, I'll only reluctantly re-tweet or blog, knowing that it diminishes my chances. Now, I'll more than happily do so. Wait: I would happily for you anyway, but even more happily now. Hope that makes sense.

My favorite in your shop would have to be your In Bloom Ankle Corsets. They are truly sublime. Your new footwear line will be this season's tatted mask.

I love how you constantly reinvent your products while keeping true to what you do best.

I'll re-tweet and blog later, when my kids aren't systematically destroying the carefully staged home I'm trying desperately to sell.

MissButler said...

My favorite items in your gorgeous shop are the ankle corsets. i love them because they remind me a the henna designs I got when I was in Morocco. The six pointed star design also reminds me of the decorative lattice plasterwork in building in North Africa. It made me very happy to look at them.

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21652648

I'll go and tweet about your anniversary festivities now!

(i think my profile has an email address, but if I were lucky enough to win you can reach me at mananaenabasto@gmail.com )

Becka said...

"Ladies Who Lunch in Winter" is my favorite piece of the moment. The color is beautiful and I can't imagine tatting merino. Wow.

I also tweeted at https://twitter.com/beckarahn

-- Happy Contest! Becka

Diana said...

I tweeted about it (we follow each other, so hopefully you'll see the tweet. Baby woke up so I'm typing w/one hand)

Will blog when I can!

betsybookwyrm said...

Happy bloggiversary :)

It's kind of hard to say what my overall favourite of your items is - mostly I just enjoy your style and seeing what you come up with next. My overall favourite at the moment is probably the Babe with the Power mask, partly for the title, partly for its cuteness. But the item in your shop I'd be most likely to buy would be the Flower Garland choker. As gorgeous as the masks are, that choker would be much more wearable for me. Also, it's pretty, it's cute, and I like the way the flowers are formed.

Tweeted the giveaway here.

Crites said...

Definitely the Bloom Ankle Corsets are my fav... Oh, I retweeted as well: http://twitter.com/MCrites/status/1302757589

Sharon D. said...

Love them all, But my pick would half to be the Portrait of an Elegant Bride.

Karyn said...

Super giveaway concept, indeed! If I ever host one, I'm definitely going to have a "growing prize" option, too!

My favourite in your shop is the black flower garland: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21099974

My very favourite item, though, is a sold item - it's called white wedding: http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=5504806

If I win, you can convo me at my Etsy shop - SomewhatHip.

Jessica Doyle said...

Wow! I've had your shop hearted forever.

RockLove said...

This I will gladly kill or kiss for:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21614135

I am fantasizing about wearing these with some killer heels... I have a fierce shoe fetish, however with minimal space my rule is to keep the numbers few but extraordinary. Let's just say I can think of many opportunities for these to strut their stuff in public!

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21614135

*oogles again*

That's it - whether I win or not, I'm pimping the shit out of them. Twitter, Facebook, My Blog, my MySpace... they are too cool and with my birthday coming up March 30th, it will direct everyone I know to your store *wink*

We loves these, don't we precious? *stroke* *stroke*

Ps - I wear size 10 *wiggles eyebrows*

Good luck all! But if you win, watch your back!

Valerie said...

all your work is gorgeous but i'm most drawn to the tatted ring 'fall bloom'. i will love to show it off to all my friends and colleagues if i win it. hope i'm lucky.

RockLove said...

Wait, so can I just keep posting myself to get to entrant 61? Look how close I am to 31... is that a prize winner?

Well nonetheless I might as well post :P

Ooh. I've always been a sucker for your red lace cuffs- they're next on my shopping list. And I lap up those ankle corsets as you know.
*coughs up a furball*

+ tweet!

singtatter said...

I have noticed your etsy shop previously, very bold statements of tatting works. Yep, hard to decide which I like best, but I really like the way the clasp is worn in front for the Ladies Who Lunch in Winter.

Kira said...

I tweeted your contest~ have always loved your work, remember the necklace we had published in Belle Armoire? very cool. twitter.com/kiraslye

Bejeweled said...

Oh, I love the chocolate square pendant one!
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11437984
I love the bolder more adventurous stuff you do, but this is something I could happily wear everyday :)

Needledreams said...

Hi Mel! It's really nice the giveaway. All your tatting is marvelous. I'll blog about it in a few minutes. Twitt you already. :-)

I fall in love with this one but all the things in your shop are so pretty! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11059858

stilettoheights said...

my current favorite item in your shop is your in bloom ankle corsets

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21652648&ref=em

I think they are really sexy in a playful and vintage sort of way, they also remind me of henna bridal tattoos.

xoxo
jenn

ps- it was really hard to pick just one thing

Erika said...

It's an hard choice...i love very much the masks and the ankle corsets...i choose "A kind of pale jewel" :)

I have also twitted ^^

knotaway said...

Love your work! It was hard to pick just one thing that I liked, but...
Gothic Princess in Pink is fabulous!
Fantastic giveaway btw!

Lolley said...

What a fab giveaway! I just love the Queen's feet… I like going barefoot in the summer and these would be so cool!

I shall tweet this too!

Happy News Chic said...

WOW, great giveaway!

My favourite would be Valentine Evenings. To be honest I haven't really tatted much at all in the last 4 years what with one thing and another. Every time I see one of your masks (and given that I see one every day in your twitter feed) it inspires me to finally learn to needle tat. In many ways you've given me back a hobby that I had lost so regardless of the comp I really have to say thank-you!

Lolley said...

I've been a-tweetin! https://twitter.com/lolleys

Jaded said...

i have a tie for my favorites!! i just cant decide between these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21614135 and this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18792460
and i'll be tweeting this for you just bcuz your stuff is so cool

Raygun Robyn said...

So technically, I am human, but I'm from the future. Can I still enter? Well I'm going to anyway! I really like "The Countess was Victorious", http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15708160 I'm not a big jewelry person, but I love a saucy necklace and this is certainly it. Bold, all gothed out and ready to make a statement. Just like me!

beri03 said...

I really love the Queen's feet. I had a beaded pair for the longest time when I was younger and wore them out!

Trayna said...

I love the "The Countess Was Victorious" choker - I think it just looks stunning.

You are a very talented lady - keep doing what you do best.

JuliaA said...

your stuff is gorgeous! WOW.

i love the art deco pendant, myself, but i'm eyeing a bunch of your other listings for my gothy-fashionable best friend. :)

i'll be blogging about this soon...i'll post the address once it's finished.

Crye said...

It was tough to choose just one, all your work is so beautiful. I keep coming back to "Down In The Underground" so it must be my favorite.

Cindy said...

Hi. I've never seen your site before, but a friend of mine posted your contests so I followed the link. I have to say that your stuff is very unique. I like the simple items the best. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21657931 I love the clean lines and simplicity of the pattern. Very good job. I can see myself picking up a few of your items.

Jennifer Nicole said...

With all of these gorgeous pieces, how could I NOT enter? I found you through a twitter re-tweet and tweeted you myself for an entry: http://twitter.com/craftyasparagus/status/1306857918. (I'm also following you on twitter now.)

And, of course, because your items are awesome, I'll pick a favorite for another entry: The barefoot sandles (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21614135). They're really bold, and as someone who loves to go barefoot, they're something I'd wear to feel sexy, outside in summer or, ahem, inside for other reasons.

To blog about your sale may take some time, but your items really are gorgeous and you've got tons of positive feedback on Etsy. Hopefully I can get a good post out before the seventeenth!

Lastly, my email address is jen [at!] awakenedaesthetic.com. :) Best of luck - I hope you get lots of new readers and sales from the anniversary!

I'm obsessed with this item: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17288448 (Portrait of an Elegant Bride). Stunning.

MJ said...

OMG! What's not to love. I love the In Bloom Ankle Corsets and the masks and the earrings and....LOL

Bombshell made redundant. American misplaced. said...

Oh, golly. You are incredibly talented. Out of all that incredible beauty, though, the thing that grabbed me most was the plain black Tiny Tatted Triangle. It's just such a precious little treasure that I just bet feels really tactilely wonderful.

Praise the Goddesses. Fully bloomed is almost an exact replica of my engagement ring!! I almost cried, since hubby designed it for me.
another fave is Grand Daisy Pendant.
Love your work chica!!!

Pamela Zimmerman said...

What a great idea! I tweeted it

and am off to your shop to pick my fav...the hard part is narrowing it down!
pamela z

Wychbury said...

Hello! I have just twittered about the giveaway! Just about to peruse your shop and choose my favourite. :)

Pamela Zimmerman said...

I love everything in your etsy shop! But i guess my favorite is the Victorian lace cuffs...because they are so wearable, short or long sleeves, for fun or to dress something up. They are very feminine and would make any woman feel fabulous...if i was still young enough, i would head right for the ankle corsets...but i feel like my legs are too fat...wear them while you can!

Anonymous said...

Vive La Reine

I followed you on Twitter

devonm @ sasktel dot NET

Wychbury said...

My favourite has to be the Victorian Cuffs:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16751812

Just beautiful. I would have done anything to have those back in my olde goth days. And I would love to wear them now! The Queens feet came a very close second. :)

Lesley. xXx

crochetbymsa said...

So hard to choose just one, everything is so lovely. My favorite would be the Grand Victorian Bloom. I just love your shop.

Maryann

linb54 said...

Daisy Tatted Cuffs are my final choice, but I did like the red Victorian lace cuffs too. They are both beautiful, but the daisy tatted cuffs could be worn with just about anything to add a bit of feminity to an outfit. Beautiful work!
from one needletatter to another...Happy Tatting!!! Linda :O)

BadCat said...

Wow! Tons of entrants since this morning. I have had Gothic Princess hearted in my favorites for some time now. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21745152

I seriously love your entire store.

lilibat said...

I like the happiness in slavery bracelet http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18792460

Why? Because I think it's be very pretty with swarovski heliotrope rhinestones sewn onto it following the pattern of the tatting. It's so open it would be much more airy than my previous experiments in sewing rhinestones onto lace: http://lilibat.deviantart.com/art/Sparkling-Frozen-Shadow-80205322

Gina said...

I wasn't going to enter this as I rarely wear tatted jewelry. Even though I secretly covet many of your pieces, I thought I'd probably just sit around and admire or - I could give it as a wonderful gift. But then I went to your shop, which I had not ever visited, and saw Seven Silver Diamonds, which I really really like, and then Victoriana Wedding Set, which I also really really like, so ...well, I just had to say so!

Anonymous said...

I love it all! I would enjoy wearing it all, though my feet aren't very attractive (maybe they would be wearing your models.)I have been admiring your designing modern, edgy accessories. I enjoy shuttle tatting, but haven't tried this.
Keep on doing- you have created a unique niche.
Ellie

SarahKelley said...

Ladies who Lunch, I think:) I love your masks of course and the Throat Corset and one of your goth necklaces caught me too-- but I think my fave is Ladies who Lunch in black. I so wear that to tea:)
I already follow you and I will tweet your post:)

SarahKelley said...

changelingthings said...

Wow! What a generous giveaway - it't a toughy to choose a favourite but I've narrowed it down to the Gothic cameo lace choker and the Ladies who lunch necklace. Now the Gothic cameo is so elegant and a little bit dangerous, and the Ladies who lunch is deciding whether to be "come hither" or "I'm too good for you"....See, it's very difficult. I'm going to go with "ladies who lunch" for my favourite this time - the title is so cheeky too.

I really love your work - I've tried the teenist bit of tatting but found it very hard to learn.
Cheers.

missfire said...

I LOVE the idea of the barefoot sandals. But I LOVE, love love your new hair flowers. Simply wonderful! I will tweet you, too!

I looked and looked! Everything is so unique and new to me. I have decided that the Victoranan Wedding Set is what I would buy -if not the Quadra in Burgundy. I would wear these for sure. Please enter me in your giveaway, it is really a doozy and as you said awesome in its structure. I hope you can give away all 4 prizes. I will mention this on my blog this evening: Ladyjspice.blogspot.com You can get my e-mail off my blog.

nullalux said...

-Pick your favorite item from the shop: I adore the Victorian Lace Cuffs (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16751812, although brown would suit my wardrobe best)! They're elegant, and since I often wear corsetry alone or with a short-sleeved shrug, I like that they can adorn the wrists without wearing a long sleeves.

I really like the Rain Keeps Falling necklace.

What a great Etsy shop. I am amazed by all of the tatted pieces. The Lace Gear Set is intrigueing to me. I love all things mechanical and love gears. Thank you for your generosity and a chance to win some of your wonderful work.

Karen L said...

Wow, you have such unique items and beautiful work! I am really loving all the ankle decor, but probably the Lace Gear Set or the Gothic Princess necklace would be my favorites!

Is it cheating for my favorite to be what I already own? The orange grand daisy tatted scarf http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11059858 ! hehe.

If it is then my next favorite is the Order Of Ecclesia - Tatted Victorian Collar. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18844567

You're so creative! I love the Victoriana Necklace!

holy mother your work is beautiful! i've already "favorited" like 5 things in my etsy account with hopes of saving up to buy a few pieces. i would have to say the most stunning item to me is the 'Order Of Ecclesia - Tatted Victorian Collar' ..with that black ribbon....it's oh so perfect.

My Favorite is Fleurette. I enjoy this piece because it is simple enough to wear to work but would also look great as accessory for a night out! I also enjoy the variety in the stitch styles used in the main piece and the chain.

You can find me at my website or, of course on twitter where I'll be retweeting this!

I just posted about this in my blog, too: http://erthefae.blogspot.com/2009/03/temptation-of-another-sort.html

and I think my blogger profile is still tied to my old broken e-mail address, so if I happen to win, please contact me at erthefae at aol dot com :D

I love the ankle corsets. I think they are my favorite.

Just found out about your blog from a tweet actually, so I guess your marketing is working!

Keti said...

I am hoping to go to the Venice Carnival next year, and I think that A Kind of Pale Jewel (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20940605) would come in perfectly handy! Congratulations, and keep up the good work. It's fantastic.

Sewicked said...

I blogged
http://sewicked.blogspot.com/

And Twittered and recommended some paranormal authors (they write paranormal, I have no idea if they are or not) take a look at your stuff.

Sewicked said...

Aaaaand I forgot to say which of your artwork that I loved the best. *sigh*
I'm torn between the Victorian Lace cuffs & the Petite Goth bracelet & Gothic Princess & Tatted Throat Corset & Celtic Flower Set. What can I say. You make gorgeous stuff.

Tammy aka GreenFuzzer TammyRodgers at frontiernet dot net said...

How can I pick just one!!! Your tatting is breath taking. I can see my daughter and future daughter-in-law arguing over most of your stuff. I can see either of my girls wearing "A Kind Of Pale Jewel" or "Down In The Underground" to the ren faire. Of course they would do the same with "The Countess Was Victorious" and Portrait of an Elegant Lady". Your bracelets and cuffs they would probably wear all the time, and your foot fetish items I don't think I would be able to get off them until they wore them out!!!! You have a beautiful and unique tatting line. I'm going to tweet this for sure!!!

silentlotuscreations said...

Your work is stunning- I've never seen anything like it! :) I have two favorites, as I couldn't decide between them. :)

Ladies Who Lunch:

and Daisy Tatted Cuffs:

I tweeted! I don't know how to get a link to a tweet, so I sent you a copy. :)

PS I love Vive La Reine, too!

You are so talented! I finally narrowed it down to choosing The Countess was Victorious.

Your work is amazing, I need to learn tatting!! ;)

Toni said...

I love your gorgeous tatting! I peeked in at your Etsy shop today and wanted to check out your blog! Amazing! And your contest is awesome! I'm a "senior" and also have an Etsy shop - Ozarknomad's Patterns and Designs. I looked through your necklaces and I think I love Seven Silver Diamonds best. It's small, elegant, and beautiful! I love all of your work, but this one is something I would wear myself. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with the world. I love your talent.

judybrittle said...

I think the Victoriana Earrings are very beautiful! Thank you!

boofsmom said...

Well, I had to stop looking through your items because I was finding TOO MANY things I liked! lol But out of the ones I did see, what I liked the most were; On the Sixth Day, the Victorian Cuffs (do you make them in black?), and Seven Silver Diamonds. Thanks for the chance to win!

phaedra said...

It was so tough to decide! I really really love The Queen's Feet - Barefoot Sandals, but my absolute favorite is Portrait of an Ankle Corset!

As requested, I have posted your giveaway and sale on my blog, with pictures. Wanted to get it done yesterday but life happened.

Elizabita said...

I love your http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=20940605 the most I think because after seeing it for the first time a week or two ago, I have been stuck tatting looking again and again at your work on etsy and your tutorials on http://www.instructables.com to the point where after my fiancé finaly pursued me to create a blog, my seccond post was about the tatting I created being inspired by you. As a bonus, your blog's aniversery is even on my birthday. WOO FOR St. PATTY'S DAY.

Anonymous said...

I like the Daisy Tatted Cuffs.

Eva said...

Wow. Such awesome work you do!

I have two favorites. The Bride's feet (though I would have to get it in a different color cause in W. TX the dirt would kill the white!) and the Celtic Knot set. I have already told my husband that I want them. Sadly he laughed at me. Guess I'll have to wait a bit longer to get them.

I just found out about your work and think I will have to keep up with you now. Thanks!

Catherinette Rings said...

A Kind Of Pale Jewel , That's my all time favorite .

Anonymous said...

I'm sure I will love my new black rose ring but I just want to say, I love my black rose eye patch, tattoo replica, necklaces and the Art Deco pendants. My next wish list items from your shop would be the Ankle Corsets, Queen's feet, and Down in the Underground.

I can only choose ONE? So sad, I am still in love with the cute scarf I traded you for, but I have to say, the wrist cuffs make my day, oh, and soe does EVERYTHING else!

Liv'nGood Jewelry said...

I can't just choose one, I tried and tried, but it's impossible ;)

so my 2 faves are:

Art Deco - Tatted Pendant http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22144720

I also tweeted you.

Saam said...

Wow, I'm blown away! My grandma tatted right up until she died at 97 and all of her granddaughters have exquisite sets made by her.
Your approach is so novel that it makes my fingers itch to get out Grandma's tatting set and give it a go.

Thanks for the inspiration!
My favourite item in your shop is Ladies Who Lunch in Winter as it is getting colder here in Australia.

Saam said...

Ok, I couldn't resist! I bought Ladies Who Lunch & Seven Silver Diamonds. Can't wait 'til I get my paws on them!

CJ Grand said...

Such a hard choice, so many beautiful things, but I think my favourite is the "Portrait of an Ankle Corset"

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21665750

BTW You've gotten loads of compliments for the tatted pendant you sent me at Christmas.

Thanks again,

OMG - How talented are you! I absolutely love everything - Wow Wow Wow!

How can I pick only one item? They are all freaking gorgeous! Because I have to choose only one, I would say the Grand Victorian Bloom is my favourite.

Sharon Rose said...

You are one SERIOUSLY talented artist! If I must choose only one, the Queen's Feet / Barefoot Sandals are my favorite... but I would happy wear anything in your shop!
Thanks!

Rosanne said...

I like the victoriana necklace!

rockcreekcreations said...

I really like this one! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18589522

Itr's not the biggest or most expensive, but it's really neat!

Monarchdancer said...

You know I love your work and think everything in your shop is incredible. Okay, we can only pick one favorite.....mine is Titania's Wedding. I love the colors!

That girl said...

I love the masks you make!!! they're gorgeous. As the world falls down is probably my favorite.

Renee said...

My personal favourite in the shop is the heart and key.

Very nice work.

Carol Lawecki said...

What an awesome give away. Could you please enter me in your drawing? Your jewelry is fantastic. So hard to pick just one thing from all your creations. But I do like the black Victorian Lace Cuff.
Contact info is in my profile at my blog. Thank you!

Digital Misfit said...

Your tatting is beyond compare. The masks are incredible works of art.
One of my favorite items is the Order Of Ecclesia - Tatted Victorian Collar. I would wear this all the time. Wearable art rocks, especially with such a wonderful but almost lost art form like tatting.

hugs,
Heidi

Greeting Pamela from Cornwall Uk!
I have seen your blog for the first time and I am blown away!!
Beautiful unique work that you do.
I am a beader ( for myself) and adore using crystal's in my work so found your ideas totally awesome.
Only snag is this :O( I want so badly to learn to needle tatt but no-one does it where i am living esp needle tatting which I want to learn for myself.
Anyhow enough of me... I love all your work esp the Victorian cuffs and collars remind me of the TV series I loved called ''The Victorian Farm''
Please may I be entered into the prize draw?
Hugs Pam

I received my black tatted ring today and it is cute and unusual. It will look great with my rose tatted bracelet and Petite Goth necklace. I can't wait to see the Celtic set for my Sister in Law.

You would be probably very surprised, that last week I saw your gorgeous Bloom Ankle Corsets in one... Lithuanian (my small motherland in the middle of Europe) forum (http://www.supermama.lt/forumas/index.php?showtopic=398977&st=96 - message #99-100) where we were discussing with girls about tatted accessories :)
You are making a great things, girl ;)

I LOVE the ankle corsets! What a cool idea! So pretty in black too.
umm sad, I can't tweet or twitter! Lovely work though..

Lavender Dreamer said...

WOW! How amazing! I've never seen anything so beautiful and unique! You've found LOTS of people that love them now! Congrats!

I love the Quadra in Copper, it's such a lovely, buttery color palette.

rilajr said...

i love the countess was victorious necklace

absolute-tash said...

There are so many gorgeous items in your store that it's hard, if not impossible to pick just one. And as I am able to create inappropriate knots in just about anything, I'm very impressed with your skills. So...fav...Hmmm...

I'd have to go with the Valentine Evening mask. I love the idea of a mask that doesn't hide your face, merely enhance it.

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20530816

The red really makes it something special. I imagine it would look smashing with Red Lipstick.

Amy said...

So much to love, but its the "On the Sixth Day" necklace that catches me most. Its simple, but not too simple, and it remind me of a snowflake. Also, I love your descriptive flair for the names of your designs---they add a whole other dimension to your listings.

Oh, I also tweeted your blog!

mermaiden said...

Talk about gorgeousness! I can picture wearing any of the masks to ritual, but especially A Kind of Pale Jewel. And the Queen's Feet barefoot sandals would be perfect ritual attire as well! For everyday embellishing, I would go for La Petite Goth bracer.

Just saw the post about your giveaway this afternoon in Aquariann's blog. I am totally in awe at your shop. You are so talented.

Anything by you is gorgeous; I'll take anything you give (though The Queen's Feet are my favorite, all foot fetishes aside 'lol').
Keep creating your beautiful art.

Hmm. I just realized that most people are doing each of their entries as separate comments. One of my comments has both an entry for picking a favorite piece and an entry for re-tweeting your sale. If those should be two separate comments, here's the second one for reference. :) If not, feel free to ignore this comment!

Jennifer Nicole said...

...I'm an idiot. My original comment had an email address, but the last two I made didn't.

my fav thing is probably the 'down in the underground' mask, it's just fabulous!

though, the one thing i would love the most, I don't think you've made, arm warmers! ;D

your stuff is just beyond fantastic, and with the response you've gotten to this giveaway, it should show just how awesome it is :)
