Giveaway and Another Shop

This giveaway is to celebrate a second shop opening.

I am just getting Second Chance Ceramics on Etsy started.

As some of you might know, I have been playing with adding decals to my handmade pottery. While I was experimenting, I used some white diner-type ware I had on hand to try out some graphics and to fill a kiln. They were supposed to be just an experiment, but they turned out so well, that my daughter and son wanted some for their apart
ments. I made more, and their friends
wanted some. I put photos on flickr and more people wanted some.

So, I decided to do this right and make the wares into a shop all by itself. If you are interested in the process, read my profile on SecondChanceCeramics on Etsy.

So, if you read all that you deserve a prize, and here it is:

Just comment which of the two dishes pictured here you would like best to win, and you are entered to win that item from Second Chance Ceramics.

One is a pagan themed mug with birds, pentacles and an image of the Greenman in stone, and the other is a little mermaid bowl with an octopus and other steampunkish things. There is a lid you can put on the bowl for storage in the fridge.


Be sure to leave some way for me to contact you if you win, like your Etsy name, or your blog or twitter or something.

I will chose a winner for the mug and the bowl next Monday, so comments are closed, on October 22nd. At midnight my time (USA Central) or thereabouts.
You can comment twice if you want to be in the drawing for each thing. Make them separate comments though, please. Thanks!




SPECIAL BONUS:
If you convo me on Etsy I will give you discount codes for my shops.

will give you a code for that shop, or convo me on SecondChanceCeramics for a discount code for that shop. Convo me on both if you want both. :)

Share the codes with your friends!
The codes will be active through January 1, 2012.

Hi AntB!

I really love the mug, it's absolutely amazing and is something I could really see myself enjoying immensely.

Good luck to everyone, and AntB rocks!

I am in totally non-platonic love with the mermaid bowl. If my affection is not reciprocated I'm going to write emo poems about it and slather on the black eyeliner. You have been warned. This is hatesbees btw!

Onii said...

The pagan-themed one is so pretty! I'd love to win that one...

I'm greyedout on Etsy, and on the Regretsy boards. :)

Chelle said...

My dear friend has a thing for the green man, so that one calls out to me. Of course, I love all of your stuff. I frequently peruse your shops, wishing I didn't have cats that knock everything off tables and counters. (This is queenofsnark, btw)

Convo me in one of my shops if you can't comment, or put it on the thread in Regretsy, and I will make a place holder or two for you too.

Ant B,

I would appreciate winning the Mermaid Bowl. I would cherish it and my friends would covet it.

I love this technique and I am glad that you added a new shop to showcase. DoTheNeedful ( Dawnesname41 at google dot com)

*sigh* Your ceramics are heavenly!! Commenting on the mermaid one. Freakypet here

Robin said...

Ugh. I keep coming back here looking back and forth between the two because I can't decide. I like the functionality of the bowl, I will definitely use it regularly. BUT I ALSO LOVE THE MUG. Grump.

Guess I'll just have to be entered for both ;-) Mug drawing, please!!
