creativebug giveaway!

Can you believe the end of the year is upon us?! 2013 was a year of acceptance and transformation for me. My anchor has been maya*made. It was the tool that kept me grounded in creativity and optimism. You all were some of the best inspiration! To thank you for your love and support, I am teaming up with my favorite folks at Creativebug to offer a special giveaway:


How would you like to win two FREE 3-month subscriptions to CreativeBug?! One for you... and one to gift your best friend, or sister, or mom!

How fun is that?! What a great present and fabulous way to begin the new year- making stuff and learning new skills with the most amazing video workshops available (if I do say so myself). There are so many to choose from... and let's not forget that you could be making burlap stockings or upcycled pouches with me!

How do you enter? From now until Tuesday, 12/17 at midnight:

1. Leave a comment here about some new crafty skill you'd like to learn in the new year.
2. For another entry into the drawing hop over to Creativebug and check out the classes offered- come on back here and share which one you can't wait to take.
3. Want your name thrown in the hat once more? Go follow mayamade on instagram and comment on any pic with the hashtag- #mayamadecreativebuggiveaway

I'll announce a random winner on Wednesday, December 18th... just in time for last minute gift making and giving! Good luck and thank you!

  18. Oh... so many things I'd like to learn... crocheting granny's squares, or flowers are on the top of my list now. Or how to sew a t-shirt, or more about sewing clothes. Or more information on how to quilt (it seems like I'm always winging it!) Oh... so many options! I love it.
    Thanks for the chance.

  19. I am retiring after Christmas and will finally have time to learn some new passions. How to follow a knitting chart. Jewelry making. And embroidery... I can't wait to relish in the details so this would be great

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh my goodness! CreativeBug is so dangerous for me and my friend Tina. We are currently making the leather wrap bracelets for Christmas gifts, and have fallen down the rabbit hole of embroidery fun with Rebecca Rinquist. I'd like to try my hand at Suminagashi paper marbling--so fun! Thanks for the giveaway offer and your inspiring posts on your creative life.

  23. I would love to take any beginning textile based classes. Interested in quilting for art, needlework, other techniques I have yet to hear about...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the looks for the intro to machine quilting and intro to needle felting... always a sucker for any 2d "conventional" art related classes as well...

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a lovely and generous way to celebrate such a significant year in your personal history, Maya! Rather than learn a new skill, next year I'd like to go deeper into my chosen crafts, knitting and sewing, to get better at both and finally be able to sew more clothes for me and the rest of the family.

  26. I'd love to take any class with Liesl Gibson - I've seen her free miniclasses on Creativebug and loved her simple and clear explanations. Also, I'm intrigued by the techniques used in the Alabama Chanin garments, so Natalie Chanin's classes also appeal very much to me. Thank you and Creativebug for the chance!

  42. I just went back to Creativebug and really... I couldn't decide which one I would take first. It could be the English paper piecing quilt, or the image transfers that I've always wanted to learn to do, beeswax collage, the sewing a t-shirt, or the embroidered photo ornament, your burlap bunting, or any of the kids projects to do with my daughter.... oh the possibilities! I might need to just stay home for a month and do them all! So much goodness.
