Havin' a GIVEAWAY!

Hi guys!  I'm kinda super excited because I just hit 100 fans on my Pooknflip Facebook page!  Actually,  102 if you want to be technical about it - because every fan is awesome! When I started that page, I didn't know if I would ever reach that number.  And really, when I started this blog, I didn't know if anyone would read it either.  But I did!  And you do!!  And I think that's pretty sweet.  :)

Anyway! To celebrate this little milestone, I'm going to be having a giveaway!!  Woohoooo!  And this is an extra special giveaway because I'm giving away.............wait for it.............a one-of-a-kind, original Pooknflip plushie!  That's right.  And not just any plushie - the first of her kind plushie!  If you are a FB fan, then you may have already met our little grand prize-ola.  But for those who aren't - I'd like to introduce:

Bonita the Bitsy Bear!


A looovely little bear cub lady for your loving & squeezing pleasure!  Isn't she cute?!  She's completely handsewn by yours truly out of vintage (an awesome floral I picked up at an antique shop), upcycled (some totally funkadelic green & white checked bell bottoms from an estate sale) and new materials.  Her cute lil' nose is a child safe, but her eyes are sewn on vintage buttons - so if you plan on gifting this critter to some lucky little munchkin - please keep that in mind.  :)

Here's her bear bum.  (This photo shows the actual colors really well.  The above pic is proof of my growing Hipstamatic obsession...)


Now for the entry details!  For any comment/entry you make - PLEASE leave your email address.  Otherwise, how'm I gonna contact you if you win, silly? ;)


Comments for this giveaway are now closed!


There is only one mandatory entry  and for that you can do one of two things:


  • Follow my blog and comment below that you've done so. 
 -OR-


(If you're already a follower or a fan - cool!  Just make sure you comment that you are & leave your email.)


Now, to up your chances, you can also do any or all of the following for additional entries!  (Remember, you must leave the above-mentioned comment/entry below first and then you can leave another comment below for each of the additional entries that you choose.)


  • Since you already did one of the mandatory entries ^ you can do the other one now!  Comment that you did it.  (Leave your email!)
  • Go to my Etsy shop, "favorite" me, and come back and leave a comment below telling me what your favorite item is (it can be handmade or vintage!).  (+ your email!)
  • Post this giveaway on your blog!  Leave the link in your comment below.
  • Post this giveaway on your FB page and post that you did so (with your username or a link) in your comment below.
  • Pin a link to this giveaway on Pinterest and let me know you did so below (with your Pinterest user name).
  • Follow me on Twitter.  Comment that you did so with your Twitter name.
And last but not least - I want to give a special thank you to Jess of Winnifred's Daughter (see her here on Etsyhere on FB) and Amy of A.A. Van Hoof (see her here on Etsy, here on FB) for their posts and support to help me reach 100 likers in those last couple day.   Thank you, ladies!  (Thank you, too, to any of my other secret helper/posters - I appreciate it so much!)

I'll run the giveaway for two weeks, randomly generate a winning entry on Thursday, February 2nd at 8:00 pm EST, and announce the winner the next day!  Good luck, everyone!  Have fun!
