Giveaway: Craft it Forward $5 gift card to Michaels

This giveaway is closed.  Go here to see the winners.


It’s Random Act of Kindness Week, y’all! And Michaels is helping us celebrate.  Because what better way to spread a little cheer than with a handcrafted surprise?

As part of their Craft it Forward program, they sent gift cards to crafty bloggers so we could make a project to inspire others to Craft it Forward.  My projects all benefit the Little Rock Animal Village Check out my post to see the kennel mats I made using t-shirts purchased at Michaels.

On Sunday, February 17, 2013 they’ll be giving away gift cards to people shopping in their 1,100 store locations across the U.S. and Canada. Their hope is that the lucky recipients will Craft it Forward and use their gift cards to buy supplies to make a random act of kindnes to someone else.

They also sent me some $5 gift cards for me to give away to Craft Gossip readers.  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment here telling me something you’d craft to bring joy to someone else.  If you need inspiration, check out the Michaels Random Acts of Kindness Pinterest board to see what other bloggers have made to Craft it Forward.  I’ll choose 5 comments at random as the winners.  Giveaway ends Wednesday, February 20, 2013.

    I’m currently crocheting my way through a bunch of pretty yarn that my artsy mother passed along to me due to ALS limitations. It’s been going back to her (and others) in the form of gift bags, lap blankets, hats, etc. — I’m so glad I read this! I should expand my recipients list to local rest home (or ALS org?) – would make my charitable mom *very* happy to know her supplies were busy comforting others. Since It was always dangerous for us two to enter Michael’s for “just one thing,” maybe I’d better NOT win this one, though… could be a mighty expensive prize!

    After my three yr old son passed away from leukemia a few years ago, I love devoting my extra time towards crafting for childhood cancer awareness and the kids fighting this horrible disease. While hospitalized, my son was sent a beautiful handmade “prayer quilt” which was a cute toddler-sized quilt made with small lengths of ribbon at the intersection of each quilted block. The purpose was for each visitor to say a small prayer for my son when they visited and tie a ribbon when they did. This quilt remains one of my most treasured possessions and is a visual reminder of how many people loved and prayed for my little boy. So I find great comfort on sending similar quilts and quilted projects to other children fighting to beat cancer; thereby “crafting forward” this amazing gift to other families.

    I would make hand balm for my office workers and patients(I work for a gynecologist). We are all experiencing very dry hands this year and everyone could use a lift this time of year. It makes you feel good when someone thinks of you. I will also take them to the breast cancer patient’s at radiology where I went for treatment last year. The staff were exceptional and I met some wonderful women undergoing treatment as I did. This would be greatly appreciated.
