A SilverCrow Giveaway!

Note from Mel:  Happy Labo(u)r Day, North Americans!  I'm re-running this post from Monday so that more people sign up for this AMAZING giveaway - sign up soon, because the contest ends tonight at 5 p.m. CDT!  Have a safe weekend, everyone!

Happy Monday, everyone!  I thought I'd begin the week with a fun chance to win an AMAZING prize pack!

If you read Friday's post, you may have seen the sneak peek of the giveaway; now I can let you know that this is an Asian Papers Pack from Silver Crow Creations (scroll about halfway down the page to see)!  Here, in Annie's words, is what the pack is all about:
SilverCrow's Asian Packet is a collection of articles from the exotic lands of the East. We've compiled an exquisite selection of about 67 items, including fine papers, Joss and spirit papers, ephemera (vintage and new), golden-leaved envelopes, vintage hand-written pieces, spirit money and origami selections.
Each package is unique, but includes a 1-inch hand-made origami crane, a bronze good-luck charm and a whimsical paper umbrella. All of the items in the package have been hand-selected, making each assortment a unique and creative inspiration pack.
This wonderful pack is worth $39 if purchased separately; SilverCrow is selling it for $19, and if you win the giveaway, it could be yours FREE.  This is a fantastic giveaway!

If you want in on this action, here's what you do:

  • Head to SilverCrow Creations to see what the site is all about
  • In the comments below, let us know your favorite category (they have SO much stuff, it wouldn't be fair to ask you about your favorite item!)
  • LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IN THE name(at)domain(dot)com FORMAT!!!!  I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH! If you don't leave your e-mail address in the comments, you'll be instantly disqualified.
That's it!  :D

I know many of you enjoy collecting or collaging with Asian papers (or both!) - now's your chance to score some for FREE!!!  I'll announce the winner on Friday, August 31 at 5 p.m.  Because it's a holiday weekend for much of North America, I'll give you until Tuesday, September 4 at noon to respond if you're the winner. If I don't hear from you by then, I'll draw another name.

Best of luck to all of you, and a HUGE thanks to SilverCrow Creations for allowing me to do this giveaway! Thank you, Annie and Pete (and Omar the cat)!  :D


  1. Being a great fan of anything Chinese my favourite items would have to be special collection of Asian papers old and new.
