300th Sale Giveaway!

In celebration of my 300th sale I've decided to add some extra excitement to the week and hold a giveaway! After all, I'm stoked on my etsy progress and who doesn't like free stuff? The freebies up for grabs? Some wide set eye smile pinback button sets! Here's the bunch to choose from:


Winnings are as follows:

First Prize = Button set of your choice (from above)
Second Prize = Button set of my choice
Third Prize = Random set (that I have the most of...)

Yay! Here's how it works - leave a comment on this post telling me what you like most about my etsy site, blog, or me and you'll be entered to win! I'll be randomly selecting the giveaway winners at the end of the week (meaning the afternoon of sunday april 11th)! Easy enough right?

Bonus ways to enter:

- follow my blog! (and post another comment - if you're already a wonderful follower post a second comment reminding me for your second entry)

- fan me on facebook! (and comment telling me your facebook name)

- follow me on twitter and tweet about my giveaway! (comment with the link please)

- blog about my giveaway (comment with link again please!)


Hooray! I've even created a darling little reminder badge at the top of my blog to nag you for the next week to sign up (he he). Good luck!

**UPDATE - The giveaway is now closed - thanks to all who entered!**

  2. Oh gosh! What do I like most... I love how darned happy everything looks! I was also super excited to find a canadian seller on Ebay, always a pleasure. And I like that you appear to like science, tea, yetis and mustached kitties :D

  3. Hi there! I love your shop and I am already a fan on facebook (my fan page is slitelyaskew) and I already follow your blog. I've had your set of three tea themed pins in my favorites (Etsy) for a while now. I removed my last post because I realized I didn't say what I liked best. I like how recognizable your style is and how consistent the style is. I love that you are in Canada and I especially like anything tea or yeti themed.

    Great work!

  13. no, pick meeee ! Indie music is greeeat, a Bachelor of Education in Victoria is even greattter, and how could it get any better then naming your child Allan Robert Hallett ? I always thought your intimate yet extremely casual sexual descriptions were a +. I was also going to say something about creativeness seeping from your pores, but i realize it's all been done before, and also, lately I think pores are just extremely gross, especially nose ones. I love receiving mail with shiny crustaceans on the front, and Captain Kirk goes perfectly with a stolen doily ! On a side note, I guess I should just say that I like your teeth, your shoes, your voice, your brain, and you hair too. Thanks for taking the time to read my comment ! : )

  14. no pick meeee ! Indie music is awesomeee, so is doing a Bachelor of Education in Victoriaaa, and who could resist naming a child Allan Robert Hallett. I love receiving mail with shiny crustaceans on the front. You always knew what would get me off. On that note, I always thought your intimate yet extremely casual sexual descriptions were a +. Kirk goes astonishingly well with a stolen doily. I was going to refer to your creativeness "seeping from your pores" as well, but it's been done before, and I've found pores to be sort of disgusting lately, especially the nose ones. And all whatever seeps out of mine is definitely not creativity. I guess I should just say that I like your shoes, your smile, your brain, your hair, and your teeth. Thanks for taking the time to read my comment ! : )

  16. Hmm. I have been following your blog since approximately August 25, 1984. Yes, that's a long time. Like almost 26 years long. And I like all of the AWESOME ideas you and your super talented and to remain unmentioned associate have come up with (hint, hint). That and I think you need to make some sasquatch pins. Maybe a mythical Canadian creatures set - with Ogopogo and a sluuguu or something.

  90. I love every piece that you make! The only problem I have is picking which ones I like the most so I won't go broke buying it all.
    I love that the name of your shop is scientific culture and that there's a culture plate in the background. ('cause I'm a huge dork who gets a kick out of that)
    I think it's awesome that you're Canadian.
    I especially love all the fun, geeky, cute science themed items you make. My personal faves are the microbes, lab ware, and the plush bacteria. (If you could make the pseudomonas grape scented it would be pure awesomeness. :))
    I like all the other creations too, and would love a chance to win a set.

  96. I'm not a science teacher, but I love cutsey stuff and you have accomplished that with adorable drawings from love robots to morel mushrooms (love, love, LOVE!). I must be a science teacher in hiding. I just bought your veggie postcard set and can't wait till it arrives. Thanks for doing what you do!
