Whew! I finally got the coat done! Our pictures of the Peacock Pirate Coat needed updated anyhow, and I was feeling vaguely slim today (I mean, I made cupcakes where the recipe used BLACK BEANS for part of the thickening and substance. Don't I SOUND like a skinny person...at least? Oh, I guess they still had a cup of butter. Anyhow....) Here are pictures, and here are the contest rules!
If you buy ANYTHING from our etsy or artfire shops from March 16th until the 29th, you'll be entered into a drawing (a real old fashion one where we put in strips of paper with your names on it, and I make my husband pull one out because it makes me too nervous!) to win this, and it is, INDEED, a $450 Value!!!!! Yes, of course, you get more entries for more things you buy, and this is a GREAT contest because, honestly, you're not competing against millions....or even thousands. I mean, I'll be honest, it would be totally tubular (when you read that word, sound it out in your head like some cocky skateboard punk from the 80's would have said it.) if I actually sold millions of things in two weeks, but I would CERTAINLY not be here writing blogs if I sold that kind of volume. I believe I would be on a private beach somewhere fretting over the calories that are still remain in the cupcakes.
Yes, you get to choose your color, and I'll make the thing to fit you! You can maybe make some small detail requests.....then again, maybe not. Basically, I'm just going to make you a luscious coat for free, and you don't have scads of competition for the drawing, so there!
Oh, and did I forget to mention that I have a coupon code running until March 26th where you can type in "PIRATE" and get 15% off of your entire order. Pretty dang sweet. We'll be listing more and more things in the days to come, I'll announce the winner, take a break for several days (actually, it's NOT a break. I'll be making the 24 hour drive to Norman, Oklahoma for a festival!) and when I get home, I'll make you the coat, so it should only be about 2 weeks wait time as well!
okay, this is the "FINE PRINT" crap that I have to throw in here. So....uh...here goes. No purchase necessary. To obtain an entry form, e-mail me, and I'll give you a bunch of crap about why you didn't just buy something, and then I'll send you the biggest form you've ever seen in your life and make you fill it all out and send it to me through the mail to enter. This is open to the United States, Canada, and where ever else I might feel like sending something. If you live in another country and this contest will break your country's rules, don't enter the dang thing. I'm not going to research the contest rules of every country in the world to do this. Sorry. Don't make this more complicated than it needs to be. And if you're really going to win something for free and then sue me over some legal technicality, then you're a complete waste of molecules anyhow.
