Portland, OR — Ahhhhh! Why have I not been blogging?! Well. . . school. It’s going well so far, only a few issues with professors – the most annoying things right now are that my nutrition professor can’t spell or create coherent quizzes and my Psych teacher pronounces the word “etcetera” as “egg-sedra.” It drives me nuts. haha
On to more important things! The holidays are coming quick and I want to give you some gift ideas AND the opportunity to enter in some giveaways. 😀 The plan is to post a giveaway each week for the next few weeks, each running for about 10 days.
So let’s get right to it! The first giveaway comes to you from Corky Friendz! You might remember Corky Friendz from my Epic Wedding Giveaway a few months ago and I thought it would be great to team up again.
This giveaway includes a classic Corky Friendz Reindeer Ornament – one of the first corky creations that helped develop this brand into what it is today! This friend is 7”x4” of fun for your tree, mantle or as a gift to brighten up anyone’s holidays! Handmade from recycled cork, wire, a hat and scarf, and a bell; valued at $18.95.
Corky Friendz is also giving away one of their all-new Wine Bottle Cozies. These bottle neck charms are a great way to wow your friendz, and brighten up your kitchen or add a special accent to that bottle of wine you’re gifting. Each wine bottle cozy is handmade using wire, and recycled cork and hand decorated using a wood burner; valued at $9.95. The wine bottle charm included in this giveaway is made with blue wire and embellished with a wood burned snowflake cork charm.
All cork is donated from local Portland, Oregon businesses, then the artist uses a wood burner to freehand a design on each charm. The colored wire is then worked into a swirl around the wine bottle neck, and fastened with the corky charm.
About Corky Friendz
Shannon Stoner-Graham came up with the idea for Corky Friendz while pondering crafty ideas for Christmas gifts one year. She wanted to make something that was cute and corky, light and cheerful, and even little on the goofy side. It started with her corky reindeer ornaments, in turn sprouted the idea for the name “Corky Friendz” and has led to an array of up-cycled wine cork products. Each wine cork is collected locally from businesses (wine bars, and vineyards) in Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas. In addition to the many styles and types of corky creations available in her shop, she also takes custom orders. Being an artist at heart, she loves making unique, personalized creations.
