Little Calligraphed Pumpkin Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.  Thanks!

Happy happy Friday!  It is the last weekend before Halloween week and we are pretty excited.  Colleen is actually in Raleigh taking her test from hell today so everyone send her positive vibes.  I know she’ll do great.  I thought it might be fun to do a little giveaway.  I have been playing with calligraphing pumpkins and although it is a kinda late in October, I thought maybe some of you guys would still be interested in having one?  I will be letting you choose what you want me to write on it.  Please keep it to less than 8 or so words.  As you can see, the phrase I did was 8 words and it just fit.  I will write it on a small white plastic pumpkin for you so you can have it for as long as you want it.  You can choose a Halloween phrase or maybe a more general fall or perhaps Thanksgiving one (Happy Fall Ya’ll or Give Thanks?) so that you will be able to use it into November.  I even think “My Little Pumpkin” in pink or blue for a nursery is a super cute idea too.  Anyways, I am rambling now.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with which quote or phrase you think you would pick.  Or whatever.  You can just say “Gimme a pumpkin!”  You will be entered as long as you comment.  You can also choose from a few different ink colors I have.  I will mail it to you as quick as I can after I randomly pick a winner on Monday night.

Good luck!

For those of you asking about if your quotes are too long, I will do the best I can.  I want you to have what you want.  🙂  I am sure I can make most of them work.  ALSO, I have already rescued two entries from our spam folder because someone told me theirs didn’t show up.  Weird.  If you comment and it doesn’t show up, shoot me an email by clicking on our email link and I will make sure to save you from spam or add a comment for you.  Silly technology.


We have a winner!

  3. Stephanie B

    Oh purdy pumpkin! I like the simple “Happy Fall Yall” 🙂

  4. Christina

    OH MY GOSH! Pick me! Pick me! I love the idea of “Give Thanks” for Thanksgiving! And seriously, your calligraphy is unreal.

  5. Malissa

    Give me that… Pretty Please!! 🙂 I would love to have our house numbers on the pumpkin…and I might add that your calligraphy skills are amazing! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

    Colleen is gonna knock this test out of the park. You got this!!! I WOULD REALLY LIKE THIS PUNKIN’ PLEASE AND THANK YOU!!!! One of my favorite quotes ever involves a pumpkin but it’s way too long: “I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” – Thoreau Happy Fall Yall is always a crowd pleaser though 🙂

  7. Ashlee

    Gimme a punkin!!!!

    I know it is a little too long, but my first choice would be
    ‘Draw Close & Tremble
    ‘Tis the Night that
    Ghosts Assemble’
    if it would possibly fit ;). If not, I also like ‘Something Wicked this Way Comes’.

    I also really loved your little ‘Hocus Pocus’ one that you posted earlier. Super cute!

  8. Dixie

    What’s lovely idea…I would LOVE this!
    “Thankful everyday.
    Blessed beyond measure.”

  9. Katrina

    I call my 3 Children, my “Pumpkins”. I would love to have a pumpkin with their names on it so that I can leave out everyday. Thank You for this giveaway!

  10. Jean Wilks

    Oh How I enjoyed my “imaginary” trip with you all. So glad to see you all having such a great time!
    Thanks for sharing all the pictures!

  11. Elizabeth

    ‘Everyone tells me you are a fake, but I believe in you. P.S. If you really are a fake, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.’ Too long…?

  12. Stephanie

    “Give Thanks for All”. I want mine written in Gold!

  13. Sara

    These are adorable! I think “Happy Fall Ya’ll” is a great idea – I agree with Stephanie B. 🙂

  14. Michele

    So cute an idea and with such lovely calligraphy! Not sure what I’d want to say but the Anne of Green Gables quote comes to mind (too many words probably)

    Fingers crossed for Colleen!

  15. Brandy

    Me me me!!

  16. Laura mueller

  19. Lacey

    Happy Fall, Y’all sounds good to me! Love it!

  20. Michele S.

    Am I too late to enter? Torn over the sentiment. But I have to agree with the majority who like “Happy Fall, Y’all” (and I’m not even from the south!)

  21. Megan
