Sweet September Giveaway! - CLOSED

Hooray, it's giveaway time again! As promised, the giveaway this month will be one of my new brass lockets. ;) The winner will get to choose which locket they'd prefer!
The lockets feature my original artwork, sealed beaneath an acrylic dome. The dome magnifies the image, and they appear to glow from within. The pics don't do them justice! These lockets have a vintage style to them, and they will come on a 17" brass chain. They will also arrive in a labelled box, tied with ribbon - perfect for gift giving!


"My Heart Sees You" Locket Necklace


"Day of the Dead Hello Kitty" Locket Necklace

Rox - Whoa that was fast, lol! I didn't even get a chance to finish editing my giveaway post. ;) You're entered, thank you!

Thank you for the high demand prediction. :) I actually hired somebody for the last holiday season and was still running around like a crazy woman! Can't really complain about that, though - I'm blessed.

I need to grab your blog buttons too! ;)

A DOTD Weasel! I think they are SO cute (weasels, that is), and you just don't see those all dolled up in DOTD wear.

Love your work! I especially covet that cake plate... :)

Tatt00tara said...

Hey Leila, Tattoo Tara here, I featured you two weeks ago on my website Tattoo Hodge Podge. Still love your work and would have to say I'd love to see either a wood pecker (it would be cool if the wood pecker could rock and 'peck' when the toy is pulled) or a T-Rex (you didn't say anything about extinct animals!). I liked your page on fb and have no idea how to follow your blog other than that I have been checking it out since I wrote the piece on your art. :) My email is tatt00tara@aol.com

My favorite animals are lemurs and hedgehogs! :)

Pili said...

My fave animals are doggies, kitties and dolphins, but I'm not too sure if dolphins would make too good pull toys... Penguins on the other side would make a great pull toy!

And I'm a blog follower and facebook liker already! ;)

My favorite animals are pigs because they are super smart, not to mention adorable with their squishy noses!!

Kritters by Karen said...

I agree with NGS that a pig would make an adorable pull toy!

I'd also love to see a snake pull toy. Ya gotta love a slithering snake!

chandlerguera said...

Two more lovely examples of your work with these lockets!
My favorite animals are cats and deer. I was thinking that birds may be a good design and Felippe is very cute!

Hey, Leila! I love the pull toys. They are sure to be snapped up by collectors from all over. I bet you cannot meet demand for them once people see them and word gets round - Anyway, please enter me in your contest. I think you should make a parrot pull toy. First b/c some parrots are native to Mexico, and second b/c I'm a parrot lover and have had several in my life! Greeetings from your swap-bot buddy - Christine
