May Giveaway Day



I was just over at Sew Mama Sew! where I saw that she is organizing a great bunch of websites that are hosting giveaways. I am going to participate in the May Giveaway Day by hosting a giveaway for a fun reusable coffee sleeve. This eco-friendly coffee cozy is handmade by me and you can see others similar to it in my Etsy shop: Threadbeaur. These great reusable sleeves can save lots of cardboard sleeves from going to the landfills.
Think of your coffee consumption:
1 to go cup a day snuggled with a cardboard sleeve=7 per week, 364 per year!
That is on a light week! Compound that by the number of coffee drinkers around the world and the number becomes staggering! Make your daily cup of coffee a little more green, win this coffee sleeve! Read the fine print below the picture.



The rules of the game are simple. Go to my shop look at the items I have and tell me what you like. I am always looking for feedback on my shop. Please leave your email so that I can contact the winner. The drawing will be a random pick of all the entries that comment on this post. This giveaway will end on May 31st at Midnight. Winner will be announced on June 1st!!! Good luck to all!
This contest, however, is for US participants, due to the shipping costs.

I love the flyaway sleeve. I didn't even know these were out there. I LOVE coffee, my husband says I am addicted. I only drink a pot or 2 on my days off, I guess I might bleed coffee after all. Those bags are so cute, I can't get all the curves evenly when I try, so I have to look at everyone elses. Thanks for the chance!!!!

Kath said...

Your choice of recycled fabric in the red print for the grocery tote is really good. Everyone loves recycled fabric, and red is a classic color! the dragonfly coffee sleeve is a conversation piece-I love coffee, and am always carrying a cup so a sleeve is a great item to sell in your shop. Thank you for your generous giveaway.

I have been meaning to get one of these...I feel so bad getting a throw away one each time I get my coffee! Your shop is great! My only suggestion would be to add some variety to the fabric colors you offer...

i adore that old-fashioned dragonfly fabric! i like your grocery bags in the shop, b/c everyone needs those! i was wondering if the handles are big enough to sling over your shoulder--that's the trait that i look for in shopping bags. :)

VickiT said...

Great prize. I've been wanting to make some coffee sleeves to keep in our van and just haven't done that yet. I'd love to win yours. Great job.

I like the coffee sleeves best in your shop. THe striped ones say coffee to me because of their color but the green flyaway one catches my eye too. As the world get more concerned about the planet, you should be able to sell more of your bags too.

I love coffee sleeves! I checked our your shop, and really like your shopping totes. Mine are all plain and boring. I could use some prints in the mix, I think.
