Boxing Week Giveaway!

giveaway (6)b

City of Craft 2010 is over and we are just past Christmas but does that mean that all the fun has dried up around these parts? No way!

We've gone through the few leftover bits from the show (and even a couple from last year) and put together a lovely prize pack to give away to you, our faithful citizens. Consider this a Boxing week sale where the deals are so deep, you don't have to pay anything. We must be crazy!

The prize pack includes a copy of Adrian Tomine's Shortcomings from Drawn & Quarterly, Tickets to Sunday Night Live at the Comedy Bar (in Toronto), a discount coupon for music boxes or supplies from Tuned Teeth, a mini print from Hieng Tang (1% Talent), a mini craft tutorial and pinback button from Sewing School, an embroidered spore pinback from Leah Buckareff (Coldsnap Bindery), a 2011 letterpress wall calendar from Etsy & secret surprises (not pictured).

But more on those calendars - our entire package of goodies from Etsy showed up the morning after City of Craft and in it were these lovely 2011 calendars letterpressed on heavy cotton paper by Dutch Door Press from San Francisco. They were supposed to go in raffle packs and such over the big weekend but maybe this is even better. This way, even those unable to attend can have a slice of crafty goodness to kick off the new year. On top of the grand prize (above), we will be drawing five additional names to win calendars (with a few other surprise goodies throw in for good measure)!

How to enter - to enter, just leave a comment below. For five extra entries, mention this giveaway on your own blog and post a link in the comments section.

If we can't find a way to contact you, we will have to go on to the next name drawn.

You can enter as of right now. The contest will remain open all week and close at Midnight EST on December 31st - as the ball drops in New York City! I'll draw the winner at the crack of whenever-I-get-up on January 1st.

Good luck! And happy new year!

    You are much like the raft,
