And the winner is...

Okay everybody. The time has come. I used a random number generator to choose the very lucky winner of this lovely collage box...the first (of many) of its kind! And the winner is...
SUELOVESCHERRIES!!! Congratulations Sue! Thank you for checking out my blog everyone and please check back in a few days for a post of my etsy store's first few items!

And Counting!

I'm pretty stoked with the turnout of my giveaway for Sew, Mama, Sew!'s May Giveaway! Thanks to everyone (again) for visiting and participating. I'm probably just as excited as you (if not more) about one of you winning this collage box. I hope to launch my Esty shop very soon so...please bookmark this blog and check back often! I've been working on similar goodies which I hope to share soon.
Okay. Time is running out so if you have NOT commented to win the lovely giveaway a few posts below, DO SO NOW! I will be choosing the winner (via random number generator) later on this evening. I will stop taking comments around 10pm Eastern Time. So comment away!

Sticky Business

Remember: TWO more days to comment to win the collage box below. I did a little more work on the inside so that will be a surprise for the winner to see. :)
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who has commented on my giveaway. It's so nice to see traffic in this new bloggity blog of mine and it tickles me pink that people are responding positively to my item.
In other news...I'm thinking of doing more collage-ish projects and offering them in my etsy shop when I get it launched...hopefully soon. So if you don't win the lovely piece below, have no fear, there will be MORE coming soon!
I'm still working out some kinks in the whole collage concept. But I think I made some progress yesterday and will continue to experiment. I want to expand to a variety of sized boxes out of different materials. In high school, I primarily worked with tin boxes which was awesome. But I never used a sealer so I'm in a different realm now.
Keep posted! More to come!

May Day!: Giveaway

The day has finally come:

May Day Giveaway by
Sew, Mama, Sew!
is HERE!
I'm Rachel, also known as Pretty Much LiQi, and I am stoked to be participating in my very first giveaway. Here is how it works:
All you lovely fine people have the chance of winning the wonderful giveaway item below. To do this, simply leave a comment on this post before the deadline: May 31st. I will then choose the Lucky Winner!
Without further delay, ladies and gentlemen, let me present what I'm giving away:
This custom collage box with a matte finish was made entirely out of one magazine. It measures 7.25" x 7.25" x 3" and is, obviously, different on all sides. Quarter above not included. ;) Here's the winning question: What magazine do you think I used and what would YOU keep in this box if it were yours? The winner will be chosen randomly after May 31st. Also, remember to check back at Sew, Mama, Sew! for all the participants and more chances at getting a free giveaway. Yay!! Remember to include your email when commenting so I can contact you when you WIN!

Some Oldies

I wanted to post some designs and art I've done to share...and get this thing going. And also to give you all a feel for what I'll be doing. SOME of what I'll be doing. ;)
Above is a tattoo design I did for a friend while we were brainstorming some ideas. This design was never used but I always liked how the waves turned out. It's a little grainy because I was stuck with a crappy photo editing program at the time.
Below is another tattoo I did for another friend. We never got around to finishing the whole concept she was going for but I enjoyed doing something a little different. More to come...
In other news, my business cards came in the mail today. I'm SO stoked. I look forward to spreading the word...
