acorns: GIVEAWAY!


I might go so far as to say that my biggest delight with living EAST, among these great deciduous woods, is the abundance of oak trees. Which means acorns. I am crazy nuts about these little beauties (and the nuts came out through my typing fingers before I even realized what an awesome punny phrase that was). If you, like the former Western me, have the misfortune (acorn speaking, that is) to live where a walk around the block doesn't fill your pockets with autumnal decorating and crafting possibilities of the acorn sort, I am feeling generous this week.

It's an acorn giveaway. I will walk around my personal acorn mecca of a neighborhood and fill a small flat-rate USPS Priority mailing box with a nice all-sizes variety of acorns and send them to a lucky one-of-you. Comment that you, too, love acorns, and on SATURDAY NIGHT (let's say 7 pm ET) I will chose one (in a properly random fashion) and mail it off on Monday, so you can get it in time for some good seasonal crafting and tactile joy.

This giveaway will become even more valuable after you read the great acorn crafting and gathering posts that are soon to come. Good times, my friends.

Okay, I've sat reading your post for the last few minutes deciding if I should enter. By typing this, I say, YES, I hope I get picked! The kids would be thrilled to have "Valerie" acorns:)

Joyce said...

I am definitely interested!!! I follow your post through a friends post and am so happy that your little one seems to be doing well.

Easily the coolest giveaway I've seen, Val. I am, like you, nuts about acorns. And I'm not ashamed to say that.

I don't need to be in your drawing. I can walk around my own neighborhood and find a treasure trove. I just wanted to say that I am looking forward to the upcoming crafts! :)

Don't put my name in the hat, because I live among giant oaks myself, but I'm looking forward to the crafting ideas to come!

I was just thinking about acorns, and how I haven't seen any lately. I love them they bring back so many nice memories, crafting and such. I would LOVE some too.

Acorns! I love Autumn and it doesn't get much more Autumnal than acorns.

Even though you posted at 10:19 which equals 10/19/1987 in my mind...
you don't need to enter me in the drawing, because amazingly there are acorns near heritage halls if your craft posts (which I love to read) inspire me to go and gather some.

Tell the girls hi and that I miss pushing them on the swings and listening to their funny stories. And every time I wear my yellow superstar shirt I think of being matchy matchy with Reub.

Love you guys!

Ohhh...I would LOVE some acorns! I've had them on my brain recently!

I waited until AFTER the giveaway to comment. Lord knows, I have enough acorns in my neighborhood to sink a ship. What a great idea though for the acorn deprived. Acorns are the coolest little seedies, aren't they? Such a cool little design. jan
