Blog Birthday Giveaway!

19 Apr

This week will be the one-year birthday/anniversary of my Blue Twig Studio blog. WOO HOO! April 22 will be the big day and I thought it would be fabulous to do a Birthday Giveaway. Who doesn’t love a good giveaway? And since April 22 is Earth Day, I thought it would be fun to tie the two events in together.

So the giveaway is going to be this fabulous book, Eco Colour by India Flint. I have reviewed this book before and I think it is an appropriate book to giveaway for Earth Day.ย You can read about it here. ย The book teaches you how to use nature and renewable resources to dye fabrics. It is a beautiful book and I know you will love it. And I will throw in some PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabrics so you can try out some of the techniques in the book!

So, what do you have to do to win this fabulous birthday giveaway? You can do a couple of things to get your name in the hat.

  1. Leave a comment here on the blog saying why you want to win.
  2. Share it on Facebook and ask your friends to come visit and leave a comment too. Leave a comment saying that you did this so I know.
  3. Share on Twitter. Let me know you tweeted!
  4. Or use any other sharing or networking site to share.

You do have to leave your comment HERE on the blog. It won’t count if you leave a comment on Facebook, although I do appreciate those comments too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will pick a winner in a few days, probably on Monday (if I remember). Good luck! If you don’t win you can buy the book here on the Blue Twig Studio website. And stay tuned, as the website birthday is coming up very soon, and there will be another giveaway for that!!! Thanks for all your support!

    Hi Deb, I shared your page/blog on my facebook page and would love to be entered to win such a cool book. I’m always learning new things and this would be totally new. And, how cool of you to add some fabric to the giveaway so we have no excuse but to try out the techniques. Congrats on your store’s birthday – how exciting is that?! Have a wonderful weekend!

      Jeesh! I even proofread that, but still messed it up. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I meant more wonderful than the past year! You knew that, tho. Awesome idea for the giveaway, too!

    Hello Deb,
    What a nice thing to do on your blog’s BDay! I am a second grade teacher and I am ALWAYS looking for ways to be inspired and then pass it on to my students. We have just spent the week talking about Earth Day and what they can do to make a difference. The book sounds great and would be helpful for future projects.


    • Deb Prewitt April 20, 2012 at 8:01 am #

      This book has a lot of information about using natural resources and getting away from all the chemical processing that is usually found in creating fabrics and such. Good luck.

    Hi Deb, I visited your booth at the Pueblo Quilt Show! I’m glad to see that you located in the Springs as am I. Congratulations on the one year birthday/anniversary!


    • Diana Gantz April 19, 2012 at 10:48 pm #

      P.S.: Would love the book. I’m always looking for something new to learn. TKS


    • Deb Prewitt April 20, 2012 at 8:02 am #

      Thanks Diana. Maybe you can stop by the next Open Studios/Open House on April 27th to check it all out.

    Wow! A whole year!! Congratulations. You are doing a wonderful job keeping all of us inspired and up to date on fun new “toys” and tequniques ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would love a chance to win you’re latest giveaway! Teresa and I could do some damage with a new inspirational tool…. Hehe


    • Deb Prewitt April 20, 2012 at 8:03 am #

    I visited your booth in Pueblo and really enjoyed seeing your line of silk ribbons and embellishments that I will be able to use on my crazy quilts. In fact, I have already used some of what I bought. I do a lot of dyeing of ribbon and fabrics so this book and the fabric look like just the type of prize I would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity. I hope you will come to an EGA meeting someday and share what you have that is needlework related…we use a lot of the scrapbooking items in needlework also.


    • Deb Prewitt April 20, 2012 at 8:04 am #

      So glad you stopped by the booth and found some fun ribbons to use. I would love to come to a meeting and share what I have. Good luck!


  8. Mary April 20, 2012 at 1:01 am #

    I am just starting to dye and paint fabric. As I can no longer work finances are very tight. So it would be a wonderful treat to win these items which would expand my knowledge. Hopefully I would be able to produce a fabric to use in the handbags I sew.

    Thanks for the opportunity !!


    • Deb Prewitt April 20, 2012 at 8:05 am #

      Good luck. This book has lots of wonderful ways to create fabric using natural resources.
