Giveaway: Handmade Mobile from Lindy by the Sea {Closed}

So as you may have noticed, I finally reached 100 GFC followers which means that I must make good on my promise to present an awesome giveaway.

With that, I am happy to present Lindy by the Sea, courtesy my good friend Lindy!



As with any two people from a small area, Lindy and I have a fair amount of connections: her mother was the librarian at the high school that Rob and I attended, she lives directly across the street from my grandparents' house, her husband is a good friend of my stepmother and bartended our wedding, and she's been lifelong friends with Rob's older sister, Becky. Lindy and I hadn't spoken much until my wedding but we quickly became friends!

Lindy is a stay-at-home mom to her adorable son and furry littler son, and she also makes amazing crafts on the side, such as these fine items:


I contacted Lindy a few months ago about hosting a giveaway from her shop once I hit 100 followers and she enthusiastically agreed to participate!

Lindy has offered to give away one of her handmade mobiles. These awesome little mobiles are made with driftwood found on the rocky shores of Maine's coast along with lots of love and Lindy's amazing handiwork.

The winner of the giveaway will be able to choose one from three mobile designs:



To see closer images of each (taken by yours truly!), see Lindy's shop.

One of these babies would be totally awesome for just about any room!


To enter (required):

1. Visit Lindy's shop and tell me in a comment what your favorite item is. Also, please leave your email address in that same comment.


Other entries (optional, leave a separate comment for each):

1. Follow To Make Love Stay on Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin'.
2. Follow me on Twitter.
3. Follow Lindy's blog via Google Friend Connect.
4. Tweet, blog or Facebook about this giveaway. If you decide to tweet, feel free to use this premade gem: I entered to win a handmade mobile via To Make Love Stay http://bit.ly/jtORnI @ElectricCaitlin

One winner will be chosen at random (using random.org) at 12 a.m. EST on Wednesday, July 6, 2011.

Good luck everyone, and thanks for reading!

  6. This is so cool! I didn't know you knew Lindy, and I didn't know she had an online shop! (though, i did know she made SUPER cool things!!) YAY for both of you! Now I'm 'following' her, too! Yeeehaw.
    Okay, I love ALL of Lindy's things, but if I had to pick ONE I guess it would be the crow banner. Love, love, LOVE the banners...

  20. Love the birds. It would be the perfect addition to our first home we are hoping to buy this year! My 88 year old gramma used to teach me the colors and songs of the birds in upstate New York. Now I think of her every time I see a Cardinal. This mobile reminds me of Cardinals, her favorite bird.
