It has been quite a while since I lasted posted an entry on this blog, which was originally set up for close family and friends to keep up with our far-flung homeschooling family. I started this blog in 2007 and have not entered a post since 2009! whoops! I find it inspiring however to read shared information in the Waldorf community, so I thought it would be a good idea to get this blog going again, to get involved in sharing as well, for my own sake (keeping track of our days) but also to connect to other like-minded community from way out here where we live.
To kick of the re-boot of this blog, I'd like to pay-it-forward with a big show of gratitude to the Waldorf, Facebook and Etsy community for showing support of my fledgling business, The Violet Sparrow ( www.thevioletsparrow.etsy.com) . I started my shop in August, 2010, and have had some wonderful success so far, which I truly appreciate! My passion is for recycled natural materials, doing good for the earth and creating for children. My shop is stocked with Waldorf-inspired goods from gnome playsets to slippers-I have so many ideas and am looking forward to stocking-and-restocking the shop and doing farmers markets in the spring and summer 2011.
And so, without further ado...a Christmas giveaway, to be given away on Christmas morning! The slippers will be completed and shipped to you just after the New Year.
Because this is a giveaway for The Violet Sparrow's Facebook fans, you must "like" the Violet Sparrow's page in order to enter, and then make a comment in the CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY post there. On Dec 25 my children will pull one lucky winner's name out of a hat and we will communicate with the winner on Facebook. Please search for The Violet Sparrow on Facebook, or cut and paste the following into your browser:
****For a second chance to win, please share my giveaway information on your blog as well, and let me know in your comment that you have done so.****
And that's it! One winner will have a new pair of custom upcycled slippers made for their child, age range from 0-4 years (up to about a size 12 toddler). Custom design and color scheme includes one of the themes pictured above: doggies, kitties, birds or bunnies, and color preference is dependent on what wool I have in stock. I will work with you to create a pair of slippers your child will love and which will keep him or her warm on these cold cold winter days! Merry Christmas!
