LadyShuttleMaker's weekly Monday MONDO Giveaway

(To save banner, left click to open then right click to save.)

Hi Friends,
I have been saving, collecting and creating gifts to giveaway for the last six months. I have a MONDO stash of stuff to share. I am doing this because I want to give back and bless all who have given to me. The tatting community has been my rock these last two years. For those who follow my blog know that I have had many ups and downs...(more downs than ups) and you all have really helped me and encouraged me all along.

Sooooo without much more ado here are the rules: (easy peasy)

Every Monday I will list a new prize to be given away the following Sunday. Each weekly contest will close Saturday at Midnight Mountain Time.

For every 25 entries an additional prize will be added...so the more entries...the more winners...get it?

All you have to do to enter is post a comment on my blog.
(You do not have to have a blog to win. Just make sure I have a way to get hold of you if you do win. This is open to international friends as well.)

However, if you do have a blog and you post a comment and do one of the following you will be entered twice.

1) add my blog to your blog roll
2) and/or "follow me"
3) and/or post about my giveaways

Every week the contest will re-set so there will be many many chances to win some really cool stuff....and remember the more who enter each week the more winners there will be. You can win more than once by entering every week.

Please feel free to use the banner at the top to post on your blogs.

This weekly giveaway will continue until I run out of prizes.

What are the prizes???? Let's see, I have mountains of thread and skeins of HDT (hand dyed thread), my handmade ceramic shuttles, pottery with tatting designs, original tatting books, tatted lace, thread holders, beads and buttons, original watercolor paintings, some treasures I picked up in Korea and many other misc. items.

Contest opens Monday Sept 14th and will continue weekly until prizes run out.

Here is a teaser for next week's giveaway.

***ADDITIONS & CLARIFICATION***

All are welcome to join in on the weekly giveaway.
I'd love to see non-tatters exposed to the wonderful world of tatting, so please help spread the news.
Of course I love comments just as much as the next person.
However, commenting on this post will not enter you in the contest.
You will need to come back Monday to comment on the prize blog....and then visit and comment every week on the contests you wish to enter.

Sound good?

Wow, you are a generous soul, Sherry! I've posted your banner on my blog side-rail and written a little post about it. I bet all 3 people who read my blog -- wait, make that 2, my sister doesn't tat -- will head over here to enter your drawing next week (and every week after). Of course, they'll have to wait in line -- me first!

In a song once it said "I don't like Mondays" but from now on I think Monday will be an exciting day for lots of us, lol.
You're so generous to do this, and you've been on my list of blogs for a long time because it is always interesting to read what you have to say.

Hi there, I am a non-tatter but I would love to learn. More than 25 entries so far and it's only Thursday.

I love the pictures on your blog. The earrings and necklace really entreat me as I have begun to do quite a bit with beads. Guess I'm just slow. My students are always looking for patterns to try their new artform and really like making things with beads.
God Bless,

Beautiful blog. I have spent hours enjoying it.

There must be something special that we should do in order to win the contest. Please let us know.

I would realy like to wine any of the prizes you are giving away but I do not believe I had done anything to deserve it, except write a note.

I am a beginner in this art since almost 3 years not. My great grand mother taught me many, many years ago but only the very essentials and I have learned a lot from this group.

In my family I am the only one who tatts at least a little and they all admire it very much.

Thanks for offering this opportunity to participate in your blog. I hope you will enjoy this contest as much as we will.

Am not usually a lucky person but can't help myself, I'll take my chances for anything to do with Tatting.
Have had your site on my blog for some time now and have dreams of your thread. Not been tatting for long and not to many supplies, but add to them a little at a time.
This also reminds me I need to get started on some snowflakes. THANKS
