George can be Yours if You Win

the giveaway currently featured on the Handmade MN Blog. HandmadeMN is an team of Etsy store owners who live in or near Minnesota. People who get together online to support, help, encourage each other in creative efforts and business management skills.

HandmadeMN Blog is a way to share general information about Etsy, about Minnesota specific events, and to showcase Etsy artists and crafters from Minnesota and environs. The group has recently started doing giveaways. This month the winner of the giveaway will get to adopt George

If you would like to have George come to your place, there are several ways to get your name into the drawing pool. All explained here. George sprang from the hands of the fast flying needle of a felter known as Stars Apon Thars. You can meet her up close and personal and see her work develop on her blog Eyes of Time and her flickr photo pages.

As well as being a superb artist, Denise is a grand friend to me. We shared a booth at Shepherd's Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival this past May. And she has put me up the the night on several visit to the Cities. We have enjoyed some fun fiberly times together. I hope you too will enjoy meeting her, on-line and through her fiber art. If you happen to enter and win George you will be amazed at the character Denise imparts to matted wool. If you like some of the other sculptures she does and has posted on her blog or on flickr - do nudge her to list them in her Etsy store so you can purchase one. :D She is a fabulous maker, but a slow lister. :D
