march 2010 :: freebie day

For Christmas 2009 I made my sister & some friends a selection of pretty drawing pins (push pins)*
I really enjoyed making them ....fast forward to March 2010 and I've made dozens of them ::

in lots & lots of colours ::

every single one is hand cut & hand stitched and has a drawing pin firmly glued & sandwiched between the layers.
FREEBIE ::
3 winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on this post and each will win a box of flower drawing pins.
RULES & HOW TO ENTER ::
1. I must be able to contact you through your comment.
2. If a name is drawn and I cannot contact the winner another name will be drawn.
3. One comment per person please
4. I will ship internationally so all are welcome to join in
5. Leave a comment on this post to enter yourself into the draw
6. Winners will be announced on Sunday 7th March
Good Luck!
*it seems that drawing pin isn't a universal term...they are also known as Push Pins!

"Drawing Pin" sounds so much more sophisticated than "push pin". What a great way to brighten up the bland gray on gray walls of a cubicle!

I've never heard the term "drawing pin," but it does sound loads better than "push pin," which is too literal for me I suppose. Great idea, by the way!
