LOVE giveaway #5: custom bunting

On this final day of  LOVE giveaways, I wanted to send out a little bit of me to you, so I'm offering one of you a custom burlap bunting. We have several in our home that we rotate and enjoy throughout the year.

Words are powerful. This bunting will be a constant reminder of one of your favorite phrases, words, or a name. Hang it indoors or out (although it won't last quite as long in heavy weather, but burlap is rugged!) This bunting will be lovingly made from burlap scraps from a recycled coffee sack. Each 4 inch square is intentionally left raw and frayed. However, edges are neatly zigzagged to prevent it from unraveling further. The letters are hand printed with nontoxic textile ink. A jute cord is sewn directly to the back for easy hanging. You'll also have your choice of these colors: black, blue, green or red.

Here are a few word suggestions to get you thinking:
grow, love, inspire, create, make, craft, goodness, lovely, handmade, welcome, home, breathe, awaken, happy

To enter in the giveaway, leave a comment, perhaps your words, and a way to reach you in this post before 2/22 at 8pm EST. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on 2/23.

Thanks for a fun and loving week- have a beautiful weekend, friends!

  2. Good morning Maya,
    I love the burlap bunting and made my first one last week out of old blue jeans and other extra fabric, for my son's room. His bunting has the words, "I can" with saturn and stars, because he's always saying "I can't". His birthday is next Sunday and I plan to make another one. Since I love your burlap bunting and if I gather the materials in time, I plan to make one of those. Thanks for the inspiration. ~Tameka

  18. so You're the person responsible for the beautiful 'gather' bunting in SouleMama's squam post (here: http://www.soulemama.com/soulemama/2012/01/the-goodness-of-squam.html)!

  41. I think my word would be 'shelter' or maybe 'family' as I found this wonderful Irish proverb the other day which just seems to suit us at the moment: "It is in the shelter of each other that we live."

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cool idea! My word would be "Soham" which is my favourite meditational mantra. It means, "I am that which is, which always was, and which always will be."

    Thanks for inspiring us everyday.

  56. My word for the year is "Sparkle" but reading other's comments, the word "Gather" grabbed my heart. I would put this banner up when I celebrate the solstices with my friends. And lots of other times too, of course.
    Thanks for a fantastic week of Love Give-Aways.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh wonderful giveaway!
    My word would be PURE LOVE (oops that's two words - just 'love' would do then ;)
    keeping my fingers crossed ;) xo

    ReplyDelete
  58. The banner is lovely! If I'm not the lucky one to win, I might just have to make one (or two...) for myself. But I'm crossing my fingers! I'm not sure what my word would be, but it would come from one of my affirmations I have been working with from the "Inside Out" e-course I'm taking... something to remind me of who I am and am becoming.

  59. I am going to have to search my soul for what would be an ideal saying for me at the moment. Elizabeth epdeans@yahoo.com
