skelly seeks new home giveaway

I have stuffed screened skellys overtaking my studio. They are mischievous when they travel in packs. I went in there yesterday and found all of my scissors strung together like garland stretching across the room. Of course, since they are short it was only raised off the floor about eight inches.

I came to the realization that I need to get some of them new homes (help spread the terror) and since Halloween is just around the corner, it seemed like a good time to do it.

(This biker was able to tame the pink one.)

So here's the deal. Leave me a comment on this blog post (with a way to get in touch with you, if I can't email you to get your mailing info, I won't include you in the drawing. And no anonymous comments.) to get a chance to win not one, not two but three skellies!

Since they have a fiesty pack mentality, three skellies aren't going to one person - three people have a chance to win! You can choose your own color too.

The winners will be chosen on Friday October 22, 2010 by random pull out of the hat kind of drawing.

(from left to right: light pink, blue, green, purple, yellow, white.
See my etsy store for better photos of the colors.)



Please, take them away. I found them doing this on Sunday during my art opening:



So leave a comment and get a chance to win your own skelly!

Lynn, I feel as though I could really use a skelly in my studio. You know my e-mail if I should be so lucky.

Von said...

Love it... what a great way to display them too

What fun guys! I know the little elves and pranksters that already live in my house would love to have a new friend to help them hide glasses and scissors, cause the dog to bark incessantly, and remove buttons from clothing.

Lynn, I would love to win a skelly, if only to pass it on to a friend that I know would give it a fabulous home. She has her own style that she calls glam goth! I know a skelly would fit right in!

Cheryl said...

I think one of those Skellys wants to live at my house! :)

Michigoose said...

Ooh! Scary skellies...I wonder if feeding them marshmallows would make them less mischievious?

Claudine Intner said...

They are so cute! Hmmm... I wonder if I can handle the mischief.

Karen Newman Fridy said...

Oh they are fabulous!! They would have a good home here in my studio...they could date the pesky pixies that reek havock with my piles of fabric.

Antonija said...

I did not know what a skelly was until I saw your post. They are adorable and would be a great addition to all my other critters in my sewing studio! Pick me, pick me!!

Do you really think it was garland? Sounds like a tripline...

I would love one for my autistic grandson who loves skeletons!!

Sabrina said...

Well, skellys are not just for Halloween nor are they scary. For me they are for my favorite celebration in my community, Dia de los Mertos a celebration of the ancestors. Checkout my blog for more on the holiday!

Lorchen said...

I wonder if it would be possible to have a skelly delivered by that biker.
Or..... We could make a skelly travel around the world with photographic evidence where it has been. :)

Vicki W said...

They look like little trouble makers to me!

Merrie Jo said...

Who wouldn't want one yet alone three of these cuties! They would love it here in Twilight country!

Barb said...

These are fabulous! I think one would enjoy living with my studio pig (he has wings, and a pierced ear!)

I love your skellies! And I am sure my son who turns 6 on Halloween will love them too, so I am going to have a try for him. I don't know if Australia is included in your draw, but I'm happy to pay for shipping if it isn't! Best wishes from Oz, where Halloween isn't very big but we are going to have a great Halloween party anyway!

Nancy Rose said...

Why do you have so many of these cute little skellies? I would be honored to have one for my studio.

Cool! I'd even take the pink one. Of course, I LIKE pink.

Annie said...

'I have not yet begun to decorate' for the upcoming holiday, much to the despair of my 10-year-old son; a skellie would delight him and kick me into gear.

Sidney Savage said...

Does the biker come with it?!

The drawing does take place on the day before my birthday so I am counting on birthday luck!

Gisela Towner said...

They are too cute! Maybe a skelly could keep my studio gremlin at bay?

Jeannie said...

I would love to own one of your skellies! I would have it guard the jelly bean/candycorn so that I would stay out of it!

Joan Potter Thomas said...

I'd love some skellies! They could sit in my studio and watch me tear Barbie dolls apart.

Kat Campau said...

I just printed my skellys with your screen. Fun and easy.
