Low Entry Giveaway - I Love Pigs!


Those who know me well know I have a weird affinity for pigs. It all stems back to the fact that I am born in the year of the boar according to the Chinese zodiac. I also love cute stationary.....another Asian attribute....however stereotypical that may sound. When I came across Shirley's store, For Any Occasion, I thought, "what cute cards!". I looked around a little more and saw her handmade pig embellishment....it's so CUTE! It is hand-punched from 100 lb card stock and measures 3" x 2". I received it in a cellophane bag and bubble envelope for protection. This little guy would be perfect for scrap booking, card making, or as an accent on other paper goods. His little tail can be twirled to stick out, creating a cute 3-D effect as well. 

Here's a little about Shirley and her store:


"I have loved creating things since I was a little girl. I was always sketching, painting, cross-stitching, and imagining. I remember once when I was about 9 or 10, I used the white edges of my school photos to make a flower.

I always loved paper. The best thing about going back to school for me was that I would get a binder full of brand new lined paper - filled with possibilities!

I discovered card making in 2008, and my love for paper crafts went deeper when I paired it with stamps and ink. I absolutely love designing cards and seeing the faces of the people who open them - handmade makes a huge difference!

I originally started "For Any Occasion" to make some money on the side with my card designs. But as I have delved into the handmade community, I have discovered a passion in me to open people's eyes to the wonderful world of handmade items. Every Monday morning on my blog, I post a feature of an artist on etsy whose handmade work I love - it doesn't matter where they are from. I see people all around me who go to the franchise stores to pick up the least expensive item or card for the people they love. My dream is to have more and more people recognize the value in handmade items, and support artists and artisans.

My goal is to make "For Any Occasion" a full-time business, making paper crafts for people all over the world."



Shirley has agreed to give away a set of her handmade mini-notecards. These would be perfect as gift cards, thank you cards, or just to write someone a note.
