Hello Peeps! I’ve missed you all so now it’s give-away time!
While I have been “taking it easy”, I have created a new flower. Yay! As most of you know or have realized by now, I love designing flowers and flora and their associated fauna, (mostly insects) and this one needs a name. This give-away is easy to enter and fun to boot! The question is: what flower does this design remind you of? This flower is circular with many overlapping petals and could be considered a little trumpeted. Think 3-D, pop-up and large. Think of the flowers in your gardens that are big and showy. If you are not a gardener, botanist or floral decorator, 😉 share this contest with your friends and family and see what they come up with for flower names. Many of you are international Snappy Tatter fans or from different parts of the US than western Pennsylvania so think of flowers that are native to your area. I am eager to see what you have out there!
Here are the “Name that Flower” Give-away rules:
~Send me your flower name that you think best represents this design. If you can find a link to a great picture that would be very helpful. I would like a common name, not a Latin name (unless there is only a Latin name, in which case I will come up with a nickname).
~The winner will be the person whose flower name I have chosen.
~In the event that more than one person has entered the same name, I will award the prize to the person who FIRST sent in the name. Thank goodness everything is time stamped these days! It could be down to seconds, ladies!
~You may enter more than one name. Entering the same name more than one time will not increase your chances, it will just take up your precious time.
~I have patterns for a Mum, Dandelion, Marigold, Rose, Lily, Pansy, and Daisy so those names cannot be entered.
~Enter by posting a commenting below or on this post on Facebook or you can send me a Tweet or what is now becoming sooooo yesterday…you can actually send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Prize? How about a custom Flower Bobby for yourself! Yay!
Here are more photos for you to use as a reference:
You will be the first kid on the block to be wearing this exclusive Snappy Tatter design and you can have it in your favorite colors. It pops up just a little so you can nestle it sweetly in your hair. The flower measures 2″ across and has a decorative glass pearl at its center. I have silver bobbies with white, pink, cream and silver pearls. The metal bobby pin measures 1.50″ long and is short enough to embellish shorter hair. These are the colors of cordonnet the winner can choose from for their bobby so you can start thinking about what you will choose!
Keep it for yourself or give it to someone special. It will come in a gift box wrapped in lovely Snappy Tatter floral paper with a red ribbon accent.
The black and silver bobby shown is for me but I will make one to go in my shop soon. I will time myself now that I have the pattern so I can get an accurate price. I am thinking the price will be between $28-$35 but don’t hold me to that. It takes a lot of time to work out a pattern and this may not take as much time as I think now that I have the numbers to go by. And no, I am not selling the pattern. Sorry ladies, maybe later this year!
This Give-away will end at noon (12 pm EST) July 31st and the winner will be announced shortly after. The newly named flower bobby will ship in 2-3 weeks!
Live, Love, Tat!
