The Pagestoppers GIVEAWAY!

{shop} {blog}

I was so ecstatic when Grace (who is an absolute sweetheart) contacted me about doing a giveaway of one of her lovely items!  Grace is relatively new to the etsy world but she totally deserves to be recognized. Her signature items are her cute, whimsical, vintage and fun bookmarks, which are definite pagestoppers in every sense of the word. Aren’t you sick of marking up your books with dog ears, I sure am!! As stated on her blogAu Revoir to dog ears and bon­jour pagestoppers! Besides bookmarks, she also expresses her crafty and creative side by making various other handmade items such as hairpins, rings and much more to come in the future! I am just so excited for Grace and can’t wait to see where her shop takes her!

{Meet the Artist}

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Grace Leong. I am 23 years old. I love Christ, pretty crafts, reading and playing the piano. I am presently teaching kindergarden children. I live in a small, tropical island- Singapore. We have all-year round summer here! 😉

What made you decide to start up your lovely Etsy shop?

The Pagestoppers was birthed two months back. It was actually a fruition of my dream of setting up an online craft shop- to express my creative side! I have a fond love of handmade products as they express the creativity of a person’s mind. Also, my boyfriend, Timothy, has been supporting me silently in this arty project!  What inspired me to start the shop was actually this verse from the Bible about the Proverbs 31 woman: “She perceives that her merchandise is good and her lamp does not go out by night.” Thus, the Pagestoppers is one of my Proverbs 31 projects at the moment.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

Anything and everything- nature, photographs, clothing, colors etc.

What is the one must-see place for a visitor of Singapore?

Well, I do not exactly have a one must-see place in mind at the moment. But one thing for sure, you must try the food here. As Singapore is known for her multiracialism, you can be sure that we have a wide variety of delicious food from the different cultures. Thus, if you are here for a short trip, do leave some time to scour the eating places in Singapore!

{Giveaway Details}

1. Win your favorite item from her shop. It could be a bookmark, ring or hairpin, anything that you like!  Just visit The Pagestoppers and leave a comment on this post with your favorite item.  Don’t worry, Grace has multiple stock for most of the items but if your item becomes out of stock or you change your mind, you can pick something else if you win!

2. (For additional entries) Blog, Twitter, or Facebook about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with each link. If you Twitter, please use @sandyalamode in your tweet and feel free to use this short link

Giveaway ends on Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 5:00PM CST. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator and will be announced on this blog on Wednesday, May 5, 2010.

P.S. You might just want to check out her blog, there might just be another giveaway of some sort on hers going until May 1, 2010! 😉 How’s that for your hump day?? A double dose of page stopping giveaways!

    And what a fab giveaway you are hosting.
    it was hard to pick a favorite as everything from Grace’s etsy is so lovely but I think I adore the : “Pretty Pastels- Lovely Hairpin Duo” most. Would look gorgeous with any summer outfit.

    Have a wonderful day.

    I love the Lovely Lavender bookmark! I think this is such a fabulous idea, I adore books and I can’t stand to harm them by dog-earing their pages. Plus, I get a lot of books from the library and of course it isn’t right to damage other people’s property! Lovely giveaway, Sandy, and thank you for stopping by Little Blue Deer!

  30. April 29, 2010 / 8:18 pm

    I’m going to be hosting a giveaway for her too!! Just waiting on her piece to arrive. How fun! That would be funny if you won mine and I won yours. Haha.

    Hope you’re having a great week. I’m pooped. Looking forward to the weekend. 🙂

  31. April 29, 2010 / 8:29 pm

    Thanks for the sweet comment. =] Your hair sounds amazing too. caramel brown and red highlights? Lovely. I wish I had the time and money to get highlights but I was lazy and just dyed my whole head at home. hehe.

    To the giveaway..

    I can’t decide what I love most. It has to be between these three: Tea Rose Ring with Silver Filigree, Cream Tea Rose Hairpin, and Pretty Pastels- Lovely Hairpin Duo in Peach.

    I’ve been wanting floral jewelry for a long time.

    <3 Serena.
