cupcake garland giveaway

Remember that competition I asked you to vote for in the beginning of this year? My groovy-ghan pattern was nominated to win the Freubelaward 2012.

Well, I came in second and won some cool stuff, and I’m going to give away some of that stuff! :)
I got these really cool DIY crochet kits; one to make tiny cupcake boxes and one to make a cupcake garland. I also got a really cool cake stand, but it’s not in the picture because I was painting it at the time ;)
prizes-1 prizes-2

Because I have you to thank for my pattern coming in second, and because I love each and every one of you, I’m giving away the kit for the cupcake garland! :)
winners-take-1 winners-take-2
The kit consists of 4 balls of Schachenmayr Cotton Time yarn in the cutest cupcake colours and a pattern description. It’s in Dutch, but I’ll translate it to English for your convenience.

To win the cupcake kit, leave a comment on this blog post. This giveaway is open to everyone, and I will ship worldwide. The giveaway ends next Monday, when I will announce the winner.

Good luck everyone, and thanks again for voting for me! You rule :)

  150. Inspiration! Color! Imagination! Technology! Functionality! Gifting! Sharing! Friendship! Stamina!

    When my BFF sent me a link to your blog which she found in a magazine article, I thought…here it comes…just another pattern with a link to a site that still leaves me, a beginner, stumped, frustrated, and ready to throw in the towel. Well…. NO WAY! Wink you are an amazing artist dedicated to your craft. What I like best about your blog, your site, you…is you incorporate technology without arrogance, your designs are clean and crisp and reflect yarn crafting as attainable, you offer a piece of yourself with no cost to the masses to encourage those who are intimidated or those who simply want to do what you’ve done, and your humble.

    Other than that…my intro is how I feel about this treasure of a link I got today. Thank you to my Bestie, April, for pointing me to Wink. I’m positively recharged and can’t wait till our next 5 hour FaceTime knit & crochet fest! After all…the distance, 2600 miles, can’t keep is apart with Artists like this at our disposal!
