A GiveAway



I am participating in Bloggy GiveAway's Winter Carnival. Just in time for Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day, I am giving away a handmade kusudama origami ball. Kusudama are dodecahedrons (12 regular pentagonal faces) and the word kusudama translates literally to "medicine ball". The photos are just samples - I will make it in reds and golds for Lunar New Year, reds, white, and pink for Valentine's day, or any other color combination you choose. It comes with a beaded loop and tassle for hanging it up.

In order to be eligible for the giveaway:
  • you will need to post a comment about what three colors you would like, or
  • any theme for your kusudama ball (valentine, baby, sports, flowers, etc), or
  • where you would hang the origami ball.

Additional entries can be gained by:

A winner will be selected using a random number generator on February 2nd and posted on this blog; I will contact you if you have a Blogspot account or if you leave your email address or blog address in the comments posting. I am willing to ship internationally, but I cannot guarantee delivery by Valentine's day for international winners.

I have three little "Christmas" three that I leave up in my foyer and decorate for every month for a different season/holiday.

I would love a red, white and blue one to go with my 4th of July tree! Wow how cool. That is beautiful handiwork you have there.

My son (16 yr old) loves origami. He impresses his friends by folding the napkins into things: swans, etc. It is really funny. He made me a reindeer for Cmas for the center of my table.

Thanks for having the giveaway!
