share day: sponsor giveaway

This month for Share Day, we're doing one big giveaway. There are nine prizes, and they'll all go to one very lucky winner! The prizes are related to the story of the Nightingale, with music, a little imitation and inspiration, and of course plenty of beauty.

To show thanks to my generous sponsors please make sure you visit each of their blogs and leave a comment. You might even find some new friends to follow!

Hello everyone! This is Sara over from the split stitch, and I am happy to be here today to participate in the giveaway. Since the theme of this month had to do with both birds and music, I figured my "Birdy Lullaby" pattern would be a perfect fit ... see a mama (or daddy) bird singing to her babies. As you transfer this pattern you can add or subtract babies from the little nest to make it extra special. The pattern comes in PDf format ... perfect to save and print whenever you want.

Good Luck to everyone, and why don't you pop on over to the split stitch where we are always talking about embroidery, sewing and paper crafts?

Sara :)

This is Tara of Sew Tara! I'm giving away this Daydreaming cozy for the sharing post. **Banana bread not included** It was inspired by my Caffeinating cozy. I guess I inspired myself!

Annie copy
Hi, I'm Annie! Inspired by this month's story, darling you boutique [dyb♥sf] will be giving away an earring holder featuring the nightingale. He sits patiently and curiously perched on the corner waiting to come home to the lucky winner! I'd love for you to visit my blog Olive Juice, and "like" my Facebook page.

Hello! This is Anita from Sew, Vintage, So Fun! In keeping with the Nightingale theme and the authentic vs imitation question, Mollie asked that our Share Day themes be music related, or have something to do with imitating. How about both?! Since we all love embroidery here so much, I decided on a music themed embroidery giveaway!

What I have for you this month is all from my stash of Sublime Stitching goodies. After all, if we are going to imitate someone's embroidery, who better then the awesome Jenny Hart? {If you took Mollie's embroidery class this summer, you got to read an interview that Mollie did with Jenny, and the comments by the many fans of the work of both of these embroidery artists.} I use a lot of patterns for my embroidery, because while I have talent with a needle and thread, my pencil to paper work leaves something to be desired. If you feel the same, you will love this Rock n' Roll pattern transfer sheet, tote bag to stitch on, and 7 skeins of Prescia floss to stitch with.

And if you would be interested in another similar giveaway, visit my blog 'Sew, Vintage, So fun!', where I write about what I'm working on and what inspires me (almost) every day. Good luck!

No Mark At All Etsy
This is Rachelle from No Mark at All. The winner will receive their choice of one 5x5 mounted print from my shop. (A $20 value)

Hi, I'm Jessica from Funky Finds and I'm giving away a Funky Finds tote bag and key chain!

Funky Finds has lots of services available to indie artisans, so be sure to check them out. For those interested in opening a shop, I'm offering 3 months free when you mention Wild Olive!

Hello everyone! My name is Isabela and I am the set of (rather busy) hands behind Ooh Leela! Ooh Leela! is all about cute (and hand embroidered) dish towels, as well as some very unique coffee sleeves! I also have blog, where I share projects I am working on and things that are going on in my life. You may also find me here and here.

I participated in handmade gift exchange earlier this month and when I saw these, it was pretty much love at first sight. And when Mollie told us the theme for this month's sponsor giveaway was "an imitation of something else", I would these would be perfect! One lucky winner will win a set of 2 hand embroidered coasters! Perfect for these hot summer days, don't cha think?

Oh, and before I forget, I belong to the Etsy Angels team on Etsy. We work together to raise money for awesome charities 4-6 times a year. This month we are raising funds forLove for Malacia Babies and I am donating 25% of all sales proceeds to this worthy non-profit organization.

Hi, I'm Janee of Yellow Bird, Yellow Beard! I'd like to giveaway one of my new Vintage Music Sheet garlands.

This is Amy of Lemon and Raspberry! Imitation is not only the 'highest form of flattery' but can be an entirely valid method of learning. Think about all those art students who study Van Gogh and Picasso before setting off on their own. Or acting students assigned to visit the theater to see how professionals do the work.

In this same vein, the Better Blog Content Workbook looks at successful methods of creating and maintaining solid blog content week after week.

The whole workbook clocks in nearly 100 pages of targeted info and specific steps to help you create better blog content.
