September Sponsors & 6 Giveaways!

Every month, Freckled Nest promotes a great collection of shops, blogs and artists in the right sidebar. This month, I've invited my sponsors to share about one of their favorite recent craft projects. Each sponsor has also contributed something special & cool to our big giveaway!! Yeeeee! * How to Enter: Visit each sponsors shop or blog and discover something you like about them, their craft or a product you love and write it here in the comments of this post. To make it a little easier, I put a number beside each sponsors blog&shop link so you can list your compliments a little easier :) In a few days, I will randomly draw one winner who will receive ALL 6 GIVEAWAYS, each arriving in the mail, one by one :) Giveaway is open to everyone! 1. blog & shop
"i love to try new crafty ideas, and i have grown really fond of embroidery these past few months after discovering so many wonderful & inspiring images online on various blogs and flickr. embroidery is such a relaxing craft, and i love how quickly a project can be finished! i bought some embroidery hoops at a local thrift store and decided to complete a few pieces for fun that would hang together on the same wall, and this is one of them. i love to use buttons in many of my art & crafts projects, and made sure to pick out the prettiest coloured ones for this piece :)" - Corinne
(8x6" acrylic painting on canvas & a handmade knit flower brooch)
2. blog & shop "Bubble gum has always been something that has reminded me of childhood. You know when you try and blow the biggest bubble ever and you end up getting it all over your face? That is my favourite! So I found this lovely stand up Bubble Gum machine at my local thrift store. There were actually 4 but I could only physically get 1 in my car that day. I took it home and scrubbed it down, and cleaned off and much goo and rust as I could the covered it in Robins Egg blue paint! For the inside I chose some Blue, Teal and Green yarn in which I rolled into various sized balls. I opened the change drawer and used that to hold all of my needles and some fun fabric. All in all, one of my favourite DIY's this last month!" - Kyla (Kyla's premiere print, "We All Develop From Negatives" painting, 2 orange felted cameras & some extra orange surprise goodies!) janel 3. blog & shop "My latest project has been creating my 2010 Planner from the kit I got at RVA. It is soooo cute and personal and perfect for someone who is super picky about their planners (like me :D)." - Janel
(2 pincushion rings & Elephant Painting)
4. blog & shop "I bought myself a gocco some time ago and I discovered that I love printing t-shirts. The latest project I made is a new "fashion line" called "i knit." shirts and tanks with a cute ball of wool on them and 'i knit.' as a quote. I made these because I am learning how to knit & it's really fun and I love to show everyone what I do. Being someone who knits doesn't make me uncool, right?! :D So I want everyone to see. PS. Right now, there are only Shirts in M listed, but I can print every size of a shirt! :)" - Katja giveaway_fn (panda toy, 'you are one in a million' postcard, crocheted headband, a bow brooch, 'it's a polaroid world' digital painting print)
5. "Funky Finds is dedicated to promoting independent artists, crafters and designers worldwide. Our far-reaching network provides artisans with little to no budget the means to promote their work to a large audience. Each week we feature a new giveaway sponsored by an independent business owner. Readers have the opportunity to win everything from cupcakes to earrings to custom postage stamps. The Funky News is our monthly newsletter that features designer calls, event announcements, Funky Finds news, and special offers & discounts exclusively for Funky Finds readers.

They once were funky lost, but now they are funky found!" - Jessica 934-1 (Funky Finds tote bag) Doily Scarf 6. blog & shop "One thing I have made lately that I just love is my doily scarf. I got the idea from the online Red Velvet Art class I took back in spring, and I have been collecting doilies from thrift stores and craft stores ever since. The original idea from the class was to make a throw or pillow out of recycled doilies, but I decide I would rather make them into a scarf instead. One and a half loops of embroidery thread, eighteen doilies, and four episodes of Buffy later, I have a sweet scarf that likes to collect compliments." - Jaime Raspberry Yummy Coffee Sleeve 2 (merry morning coffee sleeve) If you'd like to be a sponsor in October, please email to reserve your spot :) Good luck everyone and a huge thank you to my sponsors & supporters & readers!!! I love you all :) Hugs, Leigh-Ann

  16. Hannah Schlosstein9/20/2009 02:28:00 pm

    Hello! Let's get right down to business...
    1. I love when bloggers feel comfortable enough to introduce total strangers into their lives and the post about Corinne's fair escapades looked so fun, I wanted to join!

    2. Obviously the camera plushies and the tic-tac sew stacks are adorable but I have my eye on the speech-bubble felted creations for my bedroom now.

    3. All of the amazing one-of-a-kind journals make me uber inspired to scribble down my frazzled thoughts and look so stylish doing so. I doesn't hurt that she is in love with Jim from the Office either!

    4. Katja seems to love all mini-dresses equally as much as me...I bet she would sympathize with how much of a blow it takes to my wallet too. We are also in equal agreement about the polaroid obsession to boot!

    5. The entire site is dedicated to giving the talented, otherwise not exposed to the mass public, artisan a break in a big way..which is a stellar concept. I only hope that when I finally muster enough money/time/confidence to start my own shop I will be featured on Funky Finds.

    6. I would kill to own a doily-clad binder from her shop, such a grandma-chic idea. Plus Jaime prompted me to watch Tom Hanks' 'You've Got Mail' (I had forgotten how much I lurve it).

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway possibilities, and keep on typing away, I love your blog!

  17. 1. I looove her collection of paintings with the "It's True, I'd Do Anything for You" and the clouds with buttons paintings! I also love how her blog is called "i heart mondays". It makes Mondays seem not so bad ;)

    2. Tic Tac Sew set. 'Nuff said.

    3. I love Janel's blog and read it every day! She always has very inspiring things on her blog. Her quilt project seems so amazing and I cannot wait to see the finished product!

    4. Katja is another crafty girl who's blog I look forward to every day. I love how her creativity has grown in less than a year (I believe). She is so friendly and inspiring! I like that she dabbles into several different crafts and art.

    5. Umm..that "She's Got Legs" tote is freakin' ADORABLE! I think I need it. And the coffee cuffs!? Oh my... That's awesome how it's one website where many different independent artists can list their creations.

    6. Again, someone with a coffee sleeve. I've been obsessed with coffee sleeves lately and I LOVE her knitted version. This purple one is so autumn-y and cozy :)

    Thank you Leigh-Ann for the chance to win some incredibly inspiring pieces of work!

  18. 1. Her paintings have really lovely color schemes and I love the knitted brooches. I really love the picture of the 2 pigs sleeping.

    2. The wedding cake topper is amazing and I love the secret agent man bag, but she had me with the eye patch. I hope things work out for Jersey, it makes my heart ache to thing of someone's furry friend suffering.

    3. Love Oliver the Octopus painting and the pics of Catalina at the swimming pool. Catalina in her purple hoodie may in fact, be the cutest thing ever.

    4. The plush dog and I Knit shirt are possibly in my purchasing future, and the fawn ipod case just reminds me of how much I need an ipod.

    5. There are so many swell things on here, but I'm particularly fond of the El Burrito shirt.

    6. I stumbled on her blog a few days ago and thought it might be love when I saw her creative hero post on Joss Whedon, but I knew I was smitten when I saw the plushie slayer stake.

    LA- I just discovered your site a few days ago and I have been tearing through it like crazy. I think you're fabulous, inspiring and super cute.


  19. 1. I love her knitted flower broaches, and her font like handwriting!

    2. I'm in love with the Woodland Woodgrain messenger bag in her etsy shop! It is exactly what I've been looking for to carry all my things around at school! I'm crazy about anything woodgrain. The embroidery she did is beautiful!

    3. The 2010 RVA Autumn kit planner is amazing and I love that she is making hers and sharing it with the world. The self-portrait of her in the bear hat is super cute!

    4. This girl has got some serious knitting talent! I lovvve her knitted creatures, and the felt coffee cups featured on her etsy! So cute!

    5. I think Funky Finds is an amazing resource for independent artists/crafters and the people who want to find such cute things, like the stuff they feature on their site, but just don't know where to look. Crafters/craft lovers unite!

    6. I am a huge fan of reusable coffee sleeves (I carry one that I crocheted in my bag at all times), and when I saw Jamie's coffee sleeves I was in awe. I'm so glad other people love the idea of cute, reusable coffee sleeves as well! So green and chic!

    This giveaway is so neat and I'm so excited to be entered in it! Any person would be super lucky to receive any one of these amazing crafts!

  20. Awesome sponsors, LA!!! It was so fun reading thru their blogs and looking thru their shops!!!
    1. Corinne is soooo sweet and talented! Can't wait to see her etsy update and sooo glad she started her blog!
    2. That gumball machine with yarn balls is just freakin' awesome!!! Looove! The big eyed baby owls are definitely a must buy for me and her tic-tac-sew pieces are amazing! Um, and her blog....all that piratey goodness has my heart. 'nuff said. =)
    3. Oh, my sweet Janel. I just love her. She's soooo creative. She inspires me every day. There's no way in the world that I could pick one fave of hers. I love everything she creates. She does anything she sets her mind you can see by her mad quilting skillz.
    4. Loove her "I knit" shirts! It's still on my 'to learn' list but I would totally buy one. I will even admit that as I looked at this, I actually thought "I didn't know you could use the gocco on clothes". But I guess that makes sense since you can use it on fabric. HA! Don't mind me. =)
    5. Very cool. I love the concept and support of indie artists and crafters. I never realized what they were! I will definitely need to check them out more. And I love their tag line...They once were funky lost. But now they are funky found.
    6. 1st, I loooove the doily scarf! Love her creative heroes features on her blog. And I love the pick-a-mix accessories. Very cute idea and lovely goodies!

    Awesome giveaways, lovelies!!!!

  21. 1. I love her paintings and her brooches! I can't wait to see her etsy update! I already favorited her!

    2. Kyla was the first person to post a comment on one of my pictures on flickr! Her yarn bubble gum machine inspired me to crochet gumballs for mine!

    3. Janel is awesome! Very sweet! I read her blog everyday! I am pretty excited about her quilt she is making! I can't wait to see it finished!

    4. I love her coffee to go brooches! I was thinking about them earlier today and how I wanted one! haha! That panda is cuuute!

    5. I haven't heard of Funky Finds before! I'm glad I have now! Thanks!

    6. I love the color of the coffee sleeve! And I like that she used 2 different kinds of yarn! Lovely!

    This is a great giveaway! I'm crossing my fingers! <3

    2 I LOVE the “Tic Tac Sew “ item in the shop. I love that it’s a game and a great décor piece. Plus… how cleaver is it to use bobbins as “o”s. I really like the faux bois on the “x”s from the Blueberry Pie Tic Tac Sew.

    3 Janel, I love your autumn journal! Your Elsie-inspired girls are SO CUTE! P.S. Those pincushion rings are cool! They look so professional!

    4 The knitted bow tutorial is awesome! I’ve always wanted to learn how to knit, maybe this is a good place to start! I also really like the gameboy ipod pouches.

    5 What a great resource! I love how easy to navigate this site is. Plus, who can resist weekly giveaways?

    6 I love how everything in this shop has a soft sort of a feeling. My favorite thing is the Good Morning Coffee Sleeve.

  34. makes me smile to read all the sweet comments about Funky Finds! Jess
