Thanks again everyone for such a great SMS Giveaway Day and for leaving really fantastic and encouraging feedback for the artists.
Don’t forget to check out my current giveaway with Sesame Seed Designs.
Just wanted to remind everyone that there ARE some perks to reading my blog – discounts! That was my favorite part of the job when I worked retail.
In appreciation for everyone’s kind words during his giveaway, Bill from House of Six Cats is offering a 20% discount if you shop before Christmas. Humble Luna, our current giveaway artist, is also offering 20% off to my readers.
All you have to do to, at both shops, is type “The Handmade Experiment” into the notes to seller before checking out and a 20% discount will be taken off the before shipping price and you’ll receive an updated invoice. Happy shopping and thanks for supporting Portland artists and handmade this holiday season!
Fellow Portland Mama, Heidi, from Humble Luna, makes these adorable and durable costume tails that every and any kid would love. You may remember her from my Monday Must Have: Children’s Halloween Costumes post last month. Well now she’s offering up a Dragon Tail from her shop to one of you! How cool is that!?!
Heidi loves sewing and drawing. She started making children’s costumes 8 years ago when her daughter Sophie was born. (Isn’t it interesting how many of us start on our crazy crafting journeys when we have kids?) While designing costumes as an intern at the Portland Children’s Museum, Heidi came up with the idea for these Dragon Tails. They are a safe, easy to put on dress-up toy that also appeals to both boys and girls.
If you are local and would like to buy one of these great Dragon Tails check out Piccolina on 26th and SE Clinton or Plue on SE Woodstock and 44th. You can also find Humble Luna at Milagros‘ (5433 N.E.30th Ave) fundraiser for Mercy Corps. This Holiday Bazaar is on December 5th from 11am-3pm.
Everybody else can check out her etsy shop. Make sure to check back often! Heidi is planning on adding hand painted butterfly/fairy wings and other costume pieces soon. Just write The Handmade Experiment into the seller’s notes and receive a 20% discount!!
Now for the giveaway!
