5th Blogiversary Bucket Giveaway!

Over the weekend maya*made turned 5 years old! Sometimes it's hard to remember what life was like before I was documenting it in this fashion... and other days it feels like this digital diary just began. From the very beginning, I've been delighted by my connections to all of you. The conversations and friendships that have grown from this space continue to amaze me. I am forever grateful, and always humbled, that you choose to spend some of your valuable time visiting with me. My way of giving thanks each year has become a bit of tradition...

I am offering a large linen bucket to one of you. I'd love to make each of you one, but then there wouldn't be anytime left over for other creations!

The winner of this "blogiversary bucket" will have the option of customizing it with any of my stamps or stenciled with a word of choice.

Since I continue to have spring cleaning on the brain, I might use it to gather up current clutter... perhaps with a "let it go" printed on the front. Just saying...

Please leave your name and info in the comment section of this post before Thursday March 28th at 5pm EST. Feel free to share how you'd customize yours.  I'll announce the randomly selected winner on Friday, the 29th.  Buckets and buckets of thanks to each of you and good luck!

  26. Happy day to you! It's nice to be here with you for this long. And I love those buckets. I've been wanting to make one for many years, but don't have the courage yet. I even bought the coffee bean bags, but didn't bring them with me when I moved. I will make them though. And I will make many. For now, I'd be so excited to have one of yours! :} I kinda like the customize me that's already on it.
    Cheers to you and thanks for sharing.

  27. oh my words, this is just the cutest! & i am also so thankful that you have shared your life with us in this way for so many years now! it has definitely brought more creativity than you may know to my life! i am a garden educator so i would use this amazing bag for hauling my seeds, tools, binder & other necessities to different gardens in our school district. i would probably customize it with something garden-related, such as "lettuce eat!" :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've been wanting to make one of these in forever. I'd customize it with "be still." My mantra. Happy blogiversary.

  86. Congratulations, Maya! I so love the honesty, beauty, and earthiness of your posts. I love your ginko leaf, but I've had feathers on the brain lately--can't stop thinking about owl feathers. Weird. :) I recently purchased a house, and I think I'd use it in my new guest room, which has sort of a naturalist's collection theme--birds, feathers, leaves, butterflies.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Congratulations !! I do love your blog and the taste of NY that I get ( still miss it after years and years!) I can't make a decision on what I would like so quickly... your bucket deserves more than that!!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I've made so many of those buckets, and enjoy them so much! And to get one made by the creator of the pattern her self? Wow, that would be awesome. If I win, I'd like to have mine with an airplane on it (like the one on the cushion you made for your boy). My two boys would love it as much as I would.

  141. Congrats on the half-decade mark! I think "repurpose" would be a great label to remind me of the cool things I have seen you repurpose on the blog. Like the first project I found of yours: the milk carton transformed into a mini art caddy.

  145. I'd want something like W*I*P and scissors or yarn stamped on there so I could keep my current projects portable. Thanks for a chance to win!

  148. Happy Blogiversary! I think I would put your lovely owl on it - to remind me that wisdom sometimes requires waiting until the right moment. I hate that ;). Thanks for your thoughts, as always.

  151. Yes, WIP is good. So we can trug em' outside into the newly warmed air. I loved the luna moth. In fact, I think I'll go find my copy of Prodigal Summer right now...
