The Spotted Box

60 Tissue Cozies in the Mail!

Yesterday I mailed off 60 tissue cozies, samples to be distributed through The Spotted Box 
What is it?

The Spotted Box is a box of family-oriented, eco-friendly samples from independent crafters, all packaged together and sent directly to you! Designed with the young family in mind, these handmade samples are focused on children and their mothers.

What does it have in it?

The Spotted Box can include samples like: Bath and body, doublers, candles, bookmarks, candy, stationery, bibs, wool food, toys, paper arts, wipes, wool wash, tarts, mama pads, dish clothes, teas, food, dog treats, gift certificates, magnets, pens, hair products, jewelry and more! Each month it changes depending on the participants. (from About the Box)
By sending in Samples The Spotted Box will feature my store for the month of September on their site and 60 people will receive a sample of mine with my business card. And, since I send 60 samples instead of 20 I will receive a mini box of my own. Can't wait to get it :<)
Check out my feature & other Sept. participants :<)
Boxes go on sale September 15th

Giveaway Winner

We Have A Winner

Random.Org Chose Commentor #60 as the winner of $25 toward's Etsy Shop Amievoltaire

#60 is Talina from RipperArts

Talina is another Etsy seller who makes crochet chokers and beautiful cutting boards. Check out her shop!

Here is a little info about Talina:

As we live our art, we strive to support local and/or handmade. If that isn't possible, then will will buy products made in the USA. Now, this is something we just recently implemented in our family, but we feel stongly about it. Just as we hope others will consider our functional art to buy for their own homes or as gifts for others, we try to do the same. For example, we no longer do our weekly shopping at Wal-Mart, instead we choose to go to a local grocery chain. If possible, we no longer buy clothing at Babies 'R Us, Old Navy or Target, but instead, we buy handmade clothing from fellow Etsians online. We no longer shop for toys at Toys 'R Us, but from The Barefoot Chameleon, a local, small specialty shop across the street from the studio/gallery. We've met a few local Etsians who we now make routine purchases from. Margaret at Metime has some great handmade laundry and bath products that we use in our home daily. These are just a few of the specific examples of our new purchasing habbits.

Congratulations Talina!
