The Great, Gargantuan, Giftmas Giveaway!
Prize Package #5.

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

But feel free to pin STUFF anyway. 😉


It’s here.  The final day of The Great, Gargantuan, Giftmas Giveaway.  I’ll allow you a moment to reflect.

My final package for you is quite spectacular if I do say so myself.

Today’s prize package is courtesy of your favourite wood worker and mine, Brenda of Cattails Studios.  Remember her French Rolling pin from last year?  And Tricia Rose the maker of my favourite linens in the world,  Rough Linen.  Today’s package has a total value of $325.  And I love it.

Behold the final prize package up for grabs …


The winner of this prize package will get:

Cattails Studio – 1 Old Fashioned Rolling Pin (Flame Birch), 1 Plank Serving Board (Walnut), 1 Acorn Button Box (Flame Birch & Walnut).

Rough Linen – 6 handmade, custom woven 20″ Rough Linen napkins.


As if you don’t know by now here’s how to win … (if you already know how to win, just scroll to the bottom and start pinning!).

To enter to win  all you have to do is Pin something from my site, and under the description of the Pin, type “I love The Art of Doing Stuff”, and then add the number of the prize package you’re entering to win. In today’s case the prize package is #5.

So your pin would look something like this …


All of my posts have a “Pin It” button at the top of the page and at the bottom just before the comment section.  Just click on that to pin any page from my site you want.

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!

Remember:  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.

Good luck all!  Hope you had fun.

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

This final package is open to EVERYONE WORLDWIDE!

Have a good weekend  and from me and my sponsors … thank you for reading The Art of Doing Stuff.

    It’s been so fun to enter my chance in The Great Gargantuan Giftmas Giveaway every day, and to help publicize it by Pinning on Pinterest. How much more fun would it be to actually WIN something!? ~:)

    Good luck to everybody!

    I might die if this isn’t mine.

    I think I’m suffering from the vapors right now. Ahh!

  13. Nicole Kemer says:

    The acorn button box reminded me of something I just recently read that was practically “wet your pants” funny. Here is the link for when you have a minute to spare and want a great big laugh. It’s about the Williams Sonoma holiday catalog. Enjoy!

    • Barbie says:

      Nicole, I am a “vendor” for Williams and Sonoma and it always amazes me how many people buy their stuff even though it is so overpriced! I read the article “Haters guide” lol HILARIOUS!!! and SO true!!

    • Karen says:

      Nicole. O.K. Do you want to know something incredibly sad about me? I read the post, laughed my head off … then promptly went about trying to find something to make an antique sack stocking out of. I’m also considering painting a chicken on my coop. I have issues. ~ karen!

  14. ruth says:

  16. Chavella says:

    Do people still say Neat-O.? Well I do. NEAT-O

  17. Karen says:

    Following you on Pinterest. Your Pinterest link pin wouldn’t link to Pinterest. I had to go on another older blog and type it in manually and link onto it that way.

  18. Zoe says:

    Normally I spend my lunches reading your blog, today i’m pinning and reading 🙂 Bonus time!

  19. Elizabeth says:

    AHHHH! I want this one! I’m going to pin ALL THE THINGS!!!

  20. Shauna says:

    ooooh, this is my favorite one yet! I hope I can get on the internet while not at work to pin before then. We’re going out of town today. Our hosts might find it rude for me to use their computer to sit and pin all day;)

    If you haven’t been told lately, you should know that you rock Karen. Yep, you totally rock!

  21. Linda Kay says:

    I actually asked for a couple of these rolling pins for Christmas!

  22. Barbie says:
