Okay, here it is, just as I promised! I hope you will like my little giveaway prim kitty pillow.  This little pillow is made from heavy weight muslin cut from a vintage seed sack and grunged using oven scorching and coffee staining.  The lettering was stitched free-hand and the cat, moon, and star are made from quality, over-dyed, recycled wool that was appliqued using a blanket stitch.  The pillow was completely hand-sewn (no machine stitching).  It is filled with new polyfill. It measure 6" by 8". The giveaway will run until midnight September 30th (2011).  There are just a few rules in order for you to be included in the drawing.

And here they are, you need to:
Be a follower of my blog.
And Answer this question through this post - Where would you most likely shop for a Cat Haven Crafts handmade primitive? On eBay? At Etsy? or through my blog? Or any other suggestion?

That's it! If you follow the giveaway requirements, the contest is open to all.  The reason I am asking where you would shop is that I have sold my items previously on eBay but am considering selling in a different venue and I would really, really like your opinions to help me make a decision.

Also, for an additional chance to win, you could post my giveaway on your blog's sidebar, just let me know! Good luck to all and I'm looking forward to meeting a few new followers (I hope!)

  2. I am a follower from way back....I would buy from you on your blog, or Etsy....I love your pillow, especially since it has a black cat on it and I have a big boy, I call Chumlee.

  3. oh this is too cute..please enter me in..I would buy from your selling blog or on etsy..that way everyone all over the world can find you..;) and I am posting this on my sidebar..;)wish me luck;)

  4. Hi,

    I am a new follower to your lovely blog. I would shop first on your blog and second on etsy. I find that there are so many sellers on etsy that you may do better right on your blog. I will also post your lovely pillow giveaway on my blog.


  5. Good Morning I am a follower please add my name in your giveaway

    I sell on etsy and on my blog. But I am going back to selling on Ebay as well. I also sell on Facebook. I have found through out the years that there are different groups that are loyal to buying from each site, if that makes sense.


  6. Just love your pillow! I'm a long time follower and would love to be entered to win.
    If I am looking for things, I go to Etsy or Ebay mostly...sometimes on the FB forums for prim crafts and such.
    I would be happy to share your giveaway on my sidebar. Thanks so much!

  7. Hello, already a follower and I love the pillow, please enter me in your giveaway. I will post on my sidebar. Oh and I would purchase from your sales blog.


  8. Hello - I am a new follower - I wandered over from Firecracker Kid Primitives. I've loved looking at all your projects! For buying handcrafted items I think of Etsy first. Sometimes I miss the end of an auction on Ebay but the Buy-It-Now option works for me. Good Luck with your selling :)
    Smiles, DianeM

  9. Hi! I love you blog! I found you through Raggedy Creations!

    When I am looking to buy, I usually to Etsy. Very rarely I will look on eBay, but I normally don't bother unless the seller offers the buy it now option!

    Thank for the opportunity to win your lovely pillow!

  10. Hi,
    I am a new follower. I think I would buy from you on your blog. Love the pillow for the giveaway. Please enter me. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  11. Howdy..I am a follower. I also posted on my blog. I would buy from you on your blog. I dont have etsy or ebay but I have used them. But I like buying straight from the person selling. By the way..I am having a giveaway too. Sign up if you like.

  12. Glad you are back posting in the blogosphere. I am most likely to buy from blog posts. I read blogs throughout the day and rarely go to Etsy or Ebay unless I'm directed there through a search or a blogger says an item is only available there.

  13. Hi, I am a new follower; I love your blog and please enter me in your very generous giveaway. I would buy from your blog hun. Don't really care for ebay..

    Hugs, Shar

  14. Hello! I'm one of your "newer" followers!! While I used to do Ebay exclusively, I now do it rarely - and at this particular point in time, I'm more inclined to purchase items I see on someone's blog....I love Etsy and have had a wonderful experience every time I've used it, but I don't find I have (or make) the time to actually search the listings there - and, so, I like it when folks "tell me" on their blogs, etc. that they have a new listing.....

    I love your little scaredy cat pillow and would so like to be entered for a chance to win it...too, too, cute!! Thanks so very kindly! Smiles & Scaredy Cat Hugs ~ Robin

  15. Hi, I recommend very highly...ETSY. It is less expensive than ebay, you get months for each item to be on there, I get lots of sales each day from the site....I just love Etsy.
    I also sell on other sites....including my own website. Selling on your blog also sounds good.
    I am a followers as well.

  34. ok, lets try this again!!! I am so happy that I stumbled upon your blog. I love to craft and your blog is perfect for me. I can't wait to go through it.
    The pillow is very cute. Thanks for the give away. I would most likely shop through a selling blog. etsy scares me and I don't like ebay. Blogs are more personal and you can make them look really nice. -Steph-
