Tilt Creations First Blog Giveaway I will give you guys the info on Tilt Creations Blog in a second. I first wanted to let you guys know how honored I am to be the subject of her first blog giveaway. If you have been following my blog then you already saw a post about tilt creations. (she was one of my first post). I really love what she has done with the give away so please check it out and comment for her to show our support. Okay here is some info on her giveaway:
Woo Hoo!I have been trying to figure out just how I wanted to do the giveaways on this blog and came up with, well, too many ideas. So I am starting with non-handbag crafts that I have done. I love playing with different medias and can never choose just one. Solution: give them away. I am hoping that in the process I will discover which ones are sellable, but either way - it's fun.I also wanted to help other artisans along the way. Sometimes I will be giving away their goodies and other times just working along side them, promoting now.This little Flying Pig stuffie/wall hanging was originally made thinking of Shannon from Pigatopia. She is a fellow Plugger and wonderful artist. She creates to help those that can not help themselves.I spoke with her about why she does what she does for the animals and this is what she said:
"lets see my first pig Vinny is now 11 years old. I got him when he was 6 weeks old. I hand raised him and carried him everywhere with me. until he got up to 60 lbs. lol anyway when he got to be 300 lbs I needed to get his feet trimmed and tusk trimmed. Trying to find a vet was a big joke. I called around after 30 phone calls got the phone number for Noahs ark pot bellied pig rescue in New Port Richey Florida. Lynne taught me that pig's should not be that big and that dog food was bad. she came out and trimmed Vinny's feet and tusk and taught me how to do the hooves by myself. I call Lynne to this day if something goes wrong with one of my kids. I soon realized that I needed to do something to help Noah's ark more then just giving her money and I could not bring home more pigs as at one point I had 22 pigs and 9 dogs. I now only have 12 pigs and 6 dogs. I started helping Noahs ark with her fund raisers and making art to sell to raise money for her. was not long before I found other wonderful sanctuary's and rescues that could use help with not only funding and donations but just public awareness. Just seeing the rescued pigs eyes when they look at you you can see they are saying thank you for helping us. It just makes my heart sing."
Now this is all I am going to give you. You are just gonna have to check out her blog for the rest. It is easy and fun.
