Now announcing...!

Now announcing…!  This is my “official” website but I will actually be selling my handmade cards on

In order to "get the party started" I am hosting a contest!  This contest is mostly on facebook but for my friends who don't have a facebook or who have found this blog I am also posting it here.  You could win a pack of eight handmade cards... just by guessing the number of origami lucky stars in the wineglass!  Please only guess the number of stars inside the wineglass.
This is what 10 stars looks like next to a penny (and one on the penny.)

Here are the stars in the wineglass:

Please post a comment with your guess before September 1st.  Whoever gets closest without going over will win. If everyone goes over, whoever is closest to the number will win. In the event of a tie I’ll solve it the old fashioned way – drawing names from a hat.

Here are some pictures of the 8 cards you will be recieving.

If you are a guy and are thinking, “What am I going to do with a pack of handmade cards??? I would be ridiculed if I sent such beautiful cards to any of my man-friends!.” Well, who says you need to keep them? Give them to your girlfriend or mom as a present on special days. Or keep them to send if you’re the type that forgets birthday’s and mother’s day until the last minute.

If you win, I will need your address and will then ship the cards and envelopes to you for free.

Included with the cards are eight envelopes slightly larger than the cards themselves. The cards are placed in individual plastic sleeves and are put into a beautiful ivory organza bag.

If you would like to buy something from my shop then you can use coupon code “kickoff111” when you purchase it to receive 10% off your purchases! Please note that (as with amazon, ebay, and anywhere else) you will have to create an Etsy account to purchase something. This coupon code will end on September 1st (but you don’t have to buy anything to make a guess =)

Any questions? Ask! No questions? Then what are you waiting for… guess!
