The Great, Gargantuan, Giftmas Giveaway!
Prize Package #2

Thank you to everyone who participated … the winners have been drawn and the contest is now closed.  

But feel free to pin STUFF anyway. 😉

Welcome to Day 2 of The Great, Gargantuan, Giftmas Giveaway!

An entire week of giving from myself and my sponsors to YOU.

If you win, you can keep the package or …. you can keep the Christmas Pledge in mind and put it towards your Christmas gift list.  OR … and this JUST came to me right now … you could keep SOME of it and give SOME of it away.  Sometimes I surprise even myself with my insights.  I’m pretty smart for someone who who can’t follow most television dramas with more than 2 main characters.

The second of this week’s 5 prize package’s is courtesy of Lost Apostle,  Lovin’ Every Minute and me! with a total value of over $250.   It’s for people who shun the normal and embrace the unique.

It’s for people like me.


The winner of this prize package will get:

Lost Apostle1 Sterling Silver, anatomically correct, hand carved and cast heart necklace.  Made by James of Lost Apostle.

Luvin’ Every Minute:  6, 8×10 Custom Silhouette Portraits, 5, 5×7 copies of EACH to send as Christmas cards/gifts.  As well as the digital file of each one so you can use them as your screensaver, email them to friends, etc. etc. Made by Patricia of Luvin’ Every Minute.

The Art of Doing Stuff: 1 hand screen printed, flour sack tea towel with the Art of Doing Stuff cleaver logo.  Hand made by me.


To enter to win  all you have to do is Pin something from my website, and under the description of the Pin, type “I love The Art of Doing Stuff”, and the number of the prize package you’re entering to win.

Like this …



or this …


As you can see, if you want to, you can add whatever you want after “I love The Art of Doing Stuff”.


You can pin this contest page, or any other posts of mine.   All of my posts have a “Pin It” button at the top of the page and at the bottom just before the comment section.  Have a favourite DIY I did?  Pin it.  Love my Christmas wrapping from last year?  Pin it!

So …

Pin, Pin, Pin!

You are not pinning things from my Pinterest board.  You are pinning things from this website.  Repinning things from my Pinterest board will not count as entries.

There is NO limit to how many things you can Pin and each Pin will get you an entry into the contest.  The winner will be randomly drawn, but the more Pins you have, the more chances you have to win.

Remember, you HAVE to write the description as “I love The Art of Doing Stuff”.  If you don’t say that, I won’t know that you pinned.  It’s our secret code.

So … get Pinning!

See you back here tomorrow for your chance to win Prize Package #3!

The winners from the whole week will be announced Thursday, November 22rd.

This package is open to everyone WORLDWIDE!

    Karen, the PinIt button on your site doesn’t work on my iphone. Thank you.

    • Karen says:

      That sucks. Have you tried doing it from my site on “regular view” on your iPhone? If you turn the Mobile Theme (found at the *very* bottom of the screen) you should be able to do it. I tried and it works. ~ karen!

  2. Done and done. I WANT that heart!

  3. Janine says:

    Ahh! As a nursing student, this particular Giftmas package pulls at my heartstrings! No pun intended 😉

    …that’s a lie, I worked hard on that one.

  4. Angela Recker says:

    I love this package! The heart is SO cool, the silhouettes are awesome & the tea towel is AWESOMELY SPLENDIFEROUS! I’m all pinned out…….for today!

  5. Kate says:

    Thank you so much, these prizes look terrific. You know I’m gonna repost the maple syrup tutorial…that was a classic! (And no, still no palm syrup distillery in the front yard, much to my neighbors’ delight. If only my husband wasn’t so uptight! :P)

  6. Thera says:

    Ut oh, I made a boo boo yesterday then, I thought the pins were to be from your board 🙁
    Also, once again, I cannot see other comments (hope I am not the only blonde in the crowd 🙁 )

  7. I love that tea towel. It will be perfect in my kitchen. I will win it. I will.


  8. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    The heart would have a special meaning to me after all I went through having open heart surgery..The silhouettes would look so nice framed and on the wall..And of course you know that I already have one of your towels..It is proudly displayed in my kitchen on an antique wooden towel rack for everyone to see..I would be so happy to have another one..Thanks Karen!!

  9. Barbie says:

    Is your tea towel considered #3 of todays gifts? Just wanted to make sure. My brain is not on full function yet today. 🙂

  10. Barbie says:

    WAIT! Looks like all the things mentioned today ARE the whole pkg! Sorry…my bad! Like I said my brain is not completely turned on yet! ….and even when it is….well….you know. 🙂

  11. Katrina says:

    Darn it. I just realized I forgot to put the contest number in when I entered yesterday. So I guess my question is, can a person enter today for another days contest? Or can you enter that day only?

  12. Brenda J. M says:
