Monica - June 15, 2008 - 7:53 pm

I’m already signed up too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d love to give that sweet child a home though. (Is it terrible to admit that I play with Emma’s doll as much as she does?) lol

Thanks for this opportunity Chirstina!

She’s so adorable! How exciting! Please sign me up. I’ve been admiring your dolls for so long. I made a couple myself for my boys, but I’ve been coveting a Bamboletta (for me!!)

Good luck everyone!

Victoria - June 16, 2008 - 4:21 am

I just signed up for your email 2 weeks ago and would love to be included in your draw. Lily just said, “She can be for the new baby!” I think she means, “She can be for ME!” Thanks!!

Rana - June 16, 2008 - 5:00 am

Hi, Thanks for the chance of winning her, she is such a lovely doll, I would love to have her for my baby.

I signed up, please add me to the contest. Thank you.


Robert - June 16, 2008 - 10:25 am

Hello Christina!
We’re already on the newsletter list, but would love to throw our hat in the ring. While I adore your work this would be for my niece Maddie who would give Annabelle a much more attentive and loving home than myself. =) Thank you!

Melyssa - June 16, 2008 - 6:48 pm

We are already on your newsletter list. Please sign us up to win the doll, she is adorable!

Ella - June 17, 2008 - 12:06 am

i just signed up for your newsletter because i want it and didn’t realize you had one until i linked through from your doll give away. You’ve already given me the best doll ever!! so i don’t need to be included on this list.

Christine - June 17, 2008 - 4:23 am

Aaahw, I can’t be in. ๐Ÿ™ I understand though, shipping is really expensive! Lovely idea, I bet everybody would love a doll.

Karen T. - June 17, 2008 - 10:42 am

Hi, I would love to give this beautiful doll to my two year old, Ella. She absolutely adores her “babies”! I just signed up for your newsletter, please enter me into your draw!

Beth Workman - June 17, 2008 - 2:38 pm

I seem to be having trouble subscribing to your newsletter…
Annabelle, like all of your dolls, is so alive. I want to meet her! She looks funny- literally. I imagine she knows a few good knock knock jokes. If she came to live with us, we’d make sure to give her a nap, take her for outside adventures and feed her a healthy diet of wood and felt food. Looking at all of the fond comments, I’m sure she will be loved wherever she goes.

admin - June 17, 2008 - 4:50 pm

Thanks for entering everyone! All the comments want me to give dolls to ALL of you ๐Ÿ™‚ Got to run, I’m cooking John a ‘proper English dinner’ tonight for his birthday.. Yorkshire pudding and all! (with Jasper in the Ergo natch!)

Janna - June 17, 2008 - 9:42 pm

Hi Christina,

I am already a subscriber, but would love to be included in the drawing for Annabelle. Our Bamboletta “Alice” and her proud owner (our daughter) would love an addition to the family. Yorkshire pudding?!?! Oh, yummy. Happy summer!

Alicia - June 17, 2008 - 11:14 pm

Hi Christina,

I already get your newsletter, and I’m in Australia, but I’d be happy to pay for the postage! I just received 2 of your dolls last week, but I have a little niece whose parents both appreciate beautiful handmade toys, I’d love for her to have one of your dolls! So count me in if that’s ok ๐Ÿ™‚

Adrianne - June 18, 2008 - 6:39 pm

Hi Christina, Please add me to the list.

Tabitha - June 18, 2008 - 9:17 pm

Count me in on your drawing please. Your dolls are amazing!!! Thanks

Stephanie - June 19, 2008 - 11:07 am

What a sweetheart! Just like my little girl. Please add me to the draw as I already subscribe to your newsletter.

Amber - June 19, 2008 - 4:07 pm

Hi Christina,

This little one would really be loved by my niece Mikayla! (Fingers crossed)

Tressa - June 20, 2008 - 12:02 am

I look forward to reading your newsletter! Your dolls all have such a sweet happiness to them, through reading your blog it seems you put much love and joy into each of them and I love that your family is involved in the process! My three little ones would love to be a friend to Annabelle : )

Mary Jenkins - June 26, 2008 - 3:57 pm

Mama Randa - June 27, 2008 - 12:41 pm

Hello! I just signed up for your newsletter and am very excited to be entered in this drawing! I am a fellow etsy shopowner and have been in love with your dolls since I first found them. My son is usually the one I buy dolls for, but I have been dreaming of having my OWN bamboletta doll!

mannequin - June 27, 2008 - 3:42 pm

Oh absolutely adorable!!!! Please count me in!

Joanna - June 27, 2008 - 4:48 pm

Oh, my daughter would love her!

Holly - June 28, 2008 - 12:16 am

I’ve just signed up for your newsletter (which I would have done even if there was no giveaway!)

I just wanted to say that I’m actually in Australia and I know you said US and Canada only, but if I happened to win I would gladly pay all the shipping just to have a little bamboletta of my own!

Judy Munro - June 29, 2008 - 4:27 pm

Your dolls are beautiful.I’d love to win her for my granddaughter. Judy

Ashley - June 30, 2008 - 2:20 pm

Today is the day! I cannot wait to see who ends up with Annabelle! (I hope it’s me, I hope it’s me!!) =)

chloe Marshall - December 6, 2011 - 10:01 pm

O…..,M…..,G who ever got this doll was very lucky……. Wish I knew about bamboletta in 2008

i heart etsy

I knew that there was business information on etsy through the community section, but I didn’t know there was THAT much information! Fantastic. If anyone is starting their own business or looking for information in regards to any aspect of running a small business, please check this out. My personal fav is the ‘Quit your […]

Great tip, I’ll check it out! Don’t know if I ever will start something, but I like to dream about it.

Christine from the NL

I packed up the kids and headed into Victoria today to go scope out the Moss Street Market. I’m thinking about vending there next summer. I thought I could do it this summer but it’s not likely going to happen this year. Great market, good size and interesting variety of vendors and shoppers alike. I […]

c’est bon!
merci, c!

break time is over!

Yeah! I think I may have found a new sitter, we are going to try her out on Monday but she sounds great. I met her today for an ‘interview’ and got good feelings from her and she’s learning to be a nurse. With Jasper ‘aka Danger Boy’, this is a very good thing. So, […]

Allison - June 13, 2008 - 4:50 am

Wow! Thank you, I’m so surprised and honored that you mentioned my fledgling blog. I do love your dolls and hope to buy one some day for my little sweetie (and, um, for me, seriously). I enjoy reading your blog too (and my daughter was peeking over my shoulder and told me she liked the “little pink ladybug guys” – i.e. the little mushrooms at the bottom of the page). Have a lovely weekend.

Naomi - June 13, 2008 - 4:18 pm

My Jasper only sleeps with me, too. So funny. He started crawling and is seemingly drawn to electrical outlets and surge protectors. He is completely fearless during the day but such a cuddly mommy’s boy at night.

admin - June 13, 2008 - 7:24 pm

Thanks Allison!

Naomi, I think we have the same child! Have a good weekend ladies!

animals big and small..

We had a great weekend with just the four of us! All the in-laws have left, much to Benjamin’s dismay. Having a captive audience is fun times for a four year old. This week is going to be an interesting one with it back to just ‘us’. I saw a glimpse of it today with […]

Meike - June 10, 2008 - 2:00 am

O my goodness. That is some house!! Imagine living there… Wow.

I just have to ask – what are those things hanging from your tree? It must be something totally obvious, but right at this moment my brain is working overtime imagining all kinds of grisly things… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Gotta run, haircut! ๐Ÿ˜€

admin - June 10, 2008 - 7:59 pm

I hope the haircut turned out well. I gave myself one the other morning, turned out well! My hair is curly so it doesn’t matter ๐Ÿ™‚
Lol, no they are fishing balls, I don’t know what the correct term is, but they are from the sea. It was a dark and dreary day…so it looks all grisly!

Blaze Danielle - June 11, 2008 - 10:54 pm

Hi! I just found your blog, and it is so adorable! I love the colors and the little mushrooms! Ahh! So cute!

Blaze Danielle - June 11, 2008 - 10:54 pm

Your blog is just the cutest!! I love the colors and the little mushrooms!! AW! So precious!

Christine - June 12, 2008 - 3:08 am

That house is just beyond amazing. I looked at the pics a long time when you’ve posted the link before, and I had to take another look now. Wow!
But you know, playing the lottery is only fooling yourself. Believe me, I’ve tried this week and not even won a small amount. ๐Ÿ™ Instead I’m refocusing on what we already have which is wonderful too (just a small apartment here in Amsterdam, but still…we love it)!

Christine from the NL

admin - June 13, 2008 - 7:22 pm

Ohh, I never remember to play the lottery. I always say that I will, but I never do!

admin - June 13, 2008 - 7:23 pm

Thanks Blaze! I love your art so much.. very cute!
