Giveaway!!!

We have winners!!

First I would like to thank everyone for leaving a comment. I never expected 81 comments ..WoW I was pretty... pretty busy writing all these names down!!! THANKS!
My sister had the honer of taking two folded little papers from the jar...

The winner of the harlequin kit and chopper pattern is Blumbärchen.
The winner of one of my patterns is Dee.

Please contact me via e-mail vivianne@gallibearcollection.com to collect your prize, congratulations to both!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful and creative weekend!!!



It's giveaway time again! What can you win?

I have two items to giveaway,

One of my new mini Harlequin bear-kits plus free Chopper pattern.
(Not the bear, only the sewing kit plus pattern to make a little bear like this)
And for the second winner a free pattern from my shop, you choose :-)

I will pick two names next Friday, January 14, mark your calendars :-)
All my followers worldwide are welcome! Just leave a (friendly, funny, silly, helpful, inspirational) comment on this post!!!
(winner does not have to pay for shipping)

~~~

My week flew by! I can't believe it's already Saturday again tomorrow! Working on many things at the same time, not really wise but... sometimes there are so many things that need to be done, it turns me in to a chaotic person :-)

I've opened a new blog "The Old Pincushion" it's open for visitors but probably never ready :-) I'm planning on posting news and up-dates about The Old Pincushion shop here, also will there be tips and probably pattern and kit "walkthrough" help with photo's. I realize it's going to take me a lot of time to write everything down and make good photo's so I guess .. patience would be the key word.

Your very welcome to take a peak :-)

Wishing all a wonderful, fun & super creative or nice and lazy weekend!!!

Oh Vivianne - I would love to have this little bear come and live with me and my bear friends. We would give her a warm welcome after her travels - maybe with some tea and cookies. We'd take her for a tour of our little city and show her where the best spots for meeting other bears might be. Please add my name. Thanks for the chance to win! Happy New Year!
