Giveaway and Review: Eye Candy Pins!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS, JENNIE!


Today's giveaway is brought to you by Steph and Erin at the Etsy shop Eye Candy. They are "two chicks who take ordinary stuff and turn it into awesome" - how funny are they?!

These two chicks sent me the Obnoxious Proud Parent Pin, above, because, hey, it's the truth. Haha! It's a high-quality pin, and though I didn't wash it like the other one, I'm certain it could withstand the same treatment. I like it!

After today, though, I'm starting to think I should have chosen this pin for my oldest daughter, Chloë. Oy vey!

Anyway, the winner of this giveaway will be able to pick his or her choice of any four pins in the Eye Candy shop! They have lots of great choices, like...
... Twilight pins! And...


... pins from The Office!


And there's this one, which really says it all, doesn't it?
There are lots of pin choices in their shop, so be sure and look at them all before making your decision!


The Eye Candy girls like to use recycled materials whenever possible in their work, which I think is fan-flipping-tastic! Other things they like to create inlude fab bottlecap pendants, which are interchangeable on their chokers. They can even make custom pins and bottlecaps for your school, team, etc.


Eye Candy also carries cute, inexpensive cards, like this adorable octopus-themed thank-you note. I love it!
(Note: this is a scheduled post since I am out of town today, and the Etsy site stopped working in the middle of it, so I'm unable to link you to the bottlecaps and note cards. Sorry! I'll try to fix it when I get back.)


WIN IT!!
To win your choice of any four pins in the Eye Candy shop, please visit the shop on Etsy and then comment back here with which four you would choose if you won. (Be sure to show some while you're there!) It's that simple! This is required and must be done before any additional entries will count.
