The Great Dryer Ball Giveaway!


<CLOSED TO ENTRIES> chose @Lythics for the dryer balls!  Congrats!



As I had mentioned in an earlier post  I’m trying very hard to get my shop on Etsy back up and running and supplement our ninjababy fund.  I’ve promoted through Twitter and my Facebook page, and my friends have been wonderful in word of mouth advertising.  As both a thank you and a way to get the word out there about my new shop, I’ve decided to give away a full set of SIX organic wool dryer balls!  Use all six, keep three and give three away, however you’d like to do it…but six wooly felted balls will head the way of the winner.

Organic Wool Dryer Balls

2-3oz each and about the size of a baseball

The photos up there are images of some earlier balls that I’ve felted.  These may not be white, as the wool I get can be any shade from pure white to dark black.  When I have the “actual” balls rolled and ready I’ll post a shot of them as well, but they will be solid wool ( no acrylic core), between two and three ounces each and about the size of a baseball ( sometimes larger!)

I hate complicated giveaways, I really do, so I’m going to try to make this one as easy as possible, but give you lots of chances for extra entries as well.  Here we go:

Mandatory Entry:  Leave me a comment telling me why you want a set of dryer balls.

Additional Entries (please leave a separate comment for each entry!):

Follow or subscribe to  my blog & leave me a comment.

“Like” my business page on Facebook and leave me a comment there that you’ve entered to win the dryer balls.

Visit my Etsy shop and leave me a comment here telling me another product I sell that you’d like.

Leave me a comment here telling me something else you’d like to see me create!

Post “Win a set of #organic #wool #dryerballs from @SilentlyJoyful ! Enter here!” and leave me a comment that you tweeted.

That’s it, simple enough?  I’ll draw the winner using on Monday July 4th ( just to be patriotic!) and your balls will be in the mail before that Friday.  Remember, I HAVE to have a way to get in touch with you or I’ll have to redraw the winner ( and I hate doing that!)  If the primary winner doesn’t respond within 48 hours, I’ll redraw.


Trying My Hand at This Crafty Thing Again

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I used to do things that were crafty.  Shocking, I know!  In fact, I made SO much crafty stuff that I had a shop on Etsy and one on Artfire, and I made a nice little bit of extra spending money.  Not enough to travel to Hawaii, you see, but enough so that “I” had a little mad money once in a while.  Then things happened, and I got busy, and had NO time for myself and my stores fell by the wayside ( insert sympathetic mom sigh here.)

Now I find myself with not a lot of extra time, but enough that I can do things for myself on a pretty regular basis.  I also find that with the expectation of Ninjababy’s arrival in October I’m going slightly crazy with trying to figure out how I’m going to afford! all! this! stuff! that I didn’t think I’d have to buy again.  I have some wonderful friends that are passing on things to me, but there are some big items ( like a car seat *cough cough*) that I know we’ll have to swing on our own.  As a result, I’ve become crafty again.

I re-opened my shops on Etsy and Artfire, and crossed my fingers.  I’ve had a few sales lately, mostly thanks to well meaning friends on the Twitter, but  really need more.  I have no illusions of somehow making a living as a stay at home mom, crafting organic dryer balls (though that would be fantastic!) but if I could somehow manage enough to buy the newbie a Happy Hangup I’d be incredibly grateful.

So, cats and kittens, here’s the link to my shop on Etsy.  I have everything on sale right now, and a special 10% off to anyone who uses the code Twitter10.  Wanna help a mom out?  I promise you won’t be disappointed!  The organic and naturally dyed wool dryer balls are to DYE for ( hee hee.)  I have some beeswax up too, and I’m waiting til it cools off just a bit to start making solid lotions and lip balms again … but I always take special orders, so message me if you want some now!

Look at those beautiful colors!
