a valentine for you

posted in: giveaways | 0


Happy Valentine’s Day! I made a little gift for you…

This giveaway includes a waxed canvas pencil case (with three #2 pencils, oooh) and veg tanned leather key fob.

I use a pencil case very much like this one (seen here), and with it’s extra long length, it holds a lot of pens and pencils. I love mine. I finally can keep track of all my pencils, markers and tiny rulers.


To enter to win, please leave a comment below by midnight, Sunday, February 17. One comment per person please, and there are no regional restrictions. I will ship anywhere! I will announce one winner early next week.

And if you care to share, I’d love love love to hear what you would like to see more of here on the blog.

♥ Enjoy your day ♥ Do something loving for someone ♥

Update! The winner is Cheryl, commenter number 9.

Thank you for participating, everyone! I loved reading your comments.

    What I generous give-away! I’ve been enjoying following your blog, Abby, and watching your little business flourish. You have such a nice style, which is evident not only in your products, but your photos and blog. Such a pleasure to witness! I’ve been enjoying the mix of business and personal you share. Process shots are always fun, and also “before” shots of re-use materials. Just about time to start some seeds!

    Hi Abby! You know I love everything you make and everything you do. What really interests me is your earth friendly way of life, how you garden, cook, re-use and conserve. Also, how you appreciate and love this earthly life. I always love to learn new ways to improve. Thanks for everything you contribute 🙂

    Always like the idea of everything has its place – maybe my pencils can live up to that creed. I’ve been considering making a similar styled zipped case and have google patterns, but that’s as far as I got. You can save me the hassle, thanks!

    As per usual – great stitching (great turquoise too!)

    As a reluctant city dweller I love to see you surroundings.
    As the owner of a postage stamp yard I love your garden growings.
    As a fellow maker I love peeks in your workshop (and am curious about your sourcing of materials, choices etc. without you giving away any trade secrets of course)
    As the owner of an easily overwhelmed soul, I love the quiet corners of your home.The light in your part of the world has a very different quality.

    As said before – love your stitches.

    I hope that you had a perfect Valentine’s day! I’m an itinerant teacher, and I can’t think of many things more useful than a sturdy pencil case. 🙂

    Hi Abby, I meant to enter the giveaway but just remembered — I know it’s too late, no problem! I just wanted to say, I love the ‘doing it myself’ posts (esp. the most recent one which has inspired me to fix a favorite sweater I’ve not been wearing due to a hole). Warm wishes, Kristina
