A Boo For You Giveaway

My friend Jody is super crafty - like a young Martha Stewart. Her home is beautiful, she always has good kids crafts and activities, and she isn't afraid to try new things. I am frequently mulling over Do It Herself projects with her, as we exchange home, craft, and DIY magazines between us. Because vinyl lettering has been so popular, and monograms are the IT thing right now, and because her fabulous father has a fancy laser cutter, Jody has started making some really cute home decorations. She generally uses matte board, painted or covered with scrapbook paper, but has done some things out of wood and other thin materials. She is setting up an Etsy shop right now and working on filling some big orders she already received. But she took time out of her busy schedule (3 kids of her own, one a 4 month old, and she babysits her 3 month old niece every day at 6:10am) to finish a Halloween project for me. And I'm going to pass the love on to The Well-Rounded Woman readers for this spooky Halloween giveaway.


The winner will receive a set of Jody's custom black, glittery spiderwebs, one large and one medium. They look adorably icky in the corner of your window or mirror. Unfortunately they are hard to photograph, but I've done the best I can. Rest assured you will love them in person, as will all the visitors to your home.




Also in the giveaway package is a set of Halloween letters spelling out BOO! I am pleased with how these turned out, since I had a bit to do with their creation. These letters are about 4.5" tall and feature cute Halloween paper over matteboard. Please excuse the messy frig reflected in the mirror.




Enter to win this Halloween giveaway by leaving a comment on this post. I will close the giveaway at midnight on Wednesday, October 15th so I can get the prize shipped to the winner in time to display for their spooky festivities this year. If there isn't an e-mail listed on your profile or blog, please list it in the comments so I can contact you if you win.


If you don't win this giveaway, Jody will soon have things for sale at her Etsy shop - I'll let you know all the details as soon as it's up. In the meantime, if you live in the Mesa, AZ area you can buy some of Jody's spiderwebs next Saturday, October 18th at Domestic Bliss. She will be part of one of the booths there, Mimi & Friends.


I have been looking forward to this Fall Blissfest for a long time now, and since it's right after my birthday (start the countdown!) my husband has agreed to keep the kids and let me have a few hours of blissfull browsing and hopefully just a little buying.


The best part is the fundraiser for Nie Nie!

Very cute! I'm assuming that the spiderwebs only work one year? Are they just like vinyl lettering that you can't reuse?

Megan said...

Cute! :)

No, the spiderwebs are made out of matte board & spray painted black, with hand-applied glitter. They should hold up for many years. To attach them to something, you will have to glue or tape. I used a little piece of double sided tape to hold it to my mirror (the webs are pretty light weight).
