    The piggie!!! It’s been my nickname since I’ve been little and I’ve grown to love them.. well plus I love pink!

  2. July 28, 2010 / 8:50 am

    From when I first met Janie, we both had a slight obsession with pigs! How can I not?! It’s my Chinese zodiac πŸ™‚ (and my mom still buys anything pig-related for me!)

    Exciting, beautiful giveaway! Thanks, Janie!

    My favorite animal is the piggie. because they are so cute and pink (in cartoons) and chubby like Sae. Now if they had a elephant that would beat it out!

    It must be a Chinese mom thing, I have so many little pig trinkets, stuffed animals and other knickknacks, I can open up a specialty store!

    Too funny! I was on her etsy site last night!! I love her panda card!

  7. July 28, 2010 / 9:19 am

    My favorite animal has got to be the panda. There was always something striking about the black and white colors of a panda that makes me want to get so many stuffed animals of! o_o

    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity! πŸ™‚
    xo, Michelle

  8. July 28, 2010 / 9:32 am

    So cute! My favorite animal is the flamingo, because they’re pink & weird haha.

    Although among those, I love the tiger. My dad’s obsessed with them – there are so many tiger things around the house πŸ™‚

  9. July 28, 2010 / 9:33 am

    Awesome giveaway. My favorite animal would have to be a dog. They’re so cute and irresistible.

  10. July 28, 2010 / 9:35 am

    I’m hooked on letterpress!! what a great giveaway – those critters are too cute πŸ™‚ so hard to name a fave animal…but i’m going to go with the koala…loved them when i was a kid πŸ™‚

    and i tweeted!!

  11. July 28, 2010 / 9:45 am

    dogs are my favorite animal, I love that they always have such silly expressions.

    my favorite animal is the squirrel because they’re such good little scavengers and they’re so adorable! they make me smile every time i see them (which is often in maryland).

    although, otters are slowly making their way up there. adorable-ness factor is through the ROOF. they hold hands while sleeping so they don’t float away from each other. how cute is that?!?

    i also entered janie’s giveaway! :]

  17. July 28, 2010 / 10:59 am

    So this was a hard choice to pick my fav. animal… Having to go with the cow though, he’s just too sweet looking!

  18. July 28, 2010 / 11:12 am

    My nickname was mouse for a period of time because of my incessant cheese-eating, but my favorite animal is a bunny – because “They’re SO FLUFFY”. I adore her design of the reindeer though!

  19. July 28, 2010 / 11:15 am

    I entered Janie Hearts week #4 giveaway! :o)

  20. July 28, 2010 / 11:16 am

    oh goodness, just one animal? πŸ™‚

    i like elephants. super intelligent, a symbol of wisdom, and they’re pretty creatures.

    i also like things that are round and cute, and pigs and hippos come to mind too!

  21. July 28, 2010 / 11:21 am

    Favorite animal: Duck. They’re just so cute and so sweet. We used to raise ducks and one of them (Gracie – who turned out to be a boy duck) was attacked by a river otter, survived with losing an eye, then was attacked by a dog and almost taken by an eagle. This duck became best friend to everyone in our family πŸ™‚ Weird, but true.

  22. July 28, 2010 / 11:23 am

    Just hopped on over and became a follower and entered her Week 4 giveaway. Yay for me – hope I win πŸ™‚

  23. July 28, 2010 / 11:45 am

    Sandy! They are all so cute, how can I choose?

    Er . . . ok the hippo and koala are my faves!

  24. July 28, 2010 / 11:57 am

    I’m a cat lover but as all time favs go, I’d have to say Squirrels. While studying for my comprehensive exam, i had a rather sickly little squirrel that would come by and watch me study on the porch. I started feeding it peanuts, crackers and whatever he would eat. it started to get healthier and those of us in the building who regularly saw him named him Nut… He even got brave enough to stand on the window sill with my 4 cats peering at him from the other side of the screen.

  25. July 28, 2010 / 11:58 am

    I entered her giveaway too! Love this blog-collaborative entry criteria!

  26. July 28, 2010 / 12:19 pm

    Oh these are so cute!!! My favorite animal is a cat because they are (or can be) sweet and lovable but never let you forget that they are the boss. Sometimes I think if my cat were tiger size, I would be dead by now. It’s a good thing she only weighs nine pounds. Thanks Sandy!

  35. July 28, 2010 / 3:57 pm

    I love hippos because of that song – I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.

  36. July 28, 2010 / 4:26 pm

    What lovely stationery and I’d love for Janie to send some of her creativity my way as well. πŸ˜‰ I love cats because they are so cuddly and warm…at least my cat is.

  37. July 28, 2010 / 4:41 pm

    My favorite animal is a dog….the wiener dog (dachshund). I know you don’t have it there, but since you have so many other complicated animals, I’m sure you could make a wiener dog pretty easily. And then you could sell them on ebay and etsy because people LOVE wiener dogs. Seriously, there is a large following for wiener dogs and then think Christmas Cards with a wiener dog wearing a hat…..oh too cute!

    Anyway, I love your reindeer.

  38. July 28, 2010 / 5:07 pm

    Awesome giveaway! I recently started blogging (finally, eh?! Haha.) and I’m excited to meet new people and become pen pals with some of the people I meet, so I’ve been on the look out for some cute stationery! And I love this stuff! My favourite animal (besides my dog, Squirt!) is SHEEP! I LOOOOOOOOOOVE sheep. A few years ago when I was taking photography in school I had an assignment where I had to go out and take photos of a pioneer village, and they had a bunch of sheep. I swear I spent the majority of the time just standing beside the sheep and laughing! I love the noise they make! Plus I knit and crochet, so there’s that! Haha. I hope to one day have a sheep farm. I just wanna be a Sheppard and knit/crochet with the wool from my sweet sheep!

  39. July 28, 2010 / 5:08 pm

    I just commented on her blog! (and I apologize for my long rambling comment, haha!)

  40. July 28, 2010 / 5:47 pm

    Think I’m going to have to go with the tiger since I was born in the year of the tiger

  41. July 28, 2010 / 5:48 pm

    my favorite animal (for the moment, anyway. i’m indecisive!) is the pink dolphin!! because…well, i was so excited to find out they actually existed. it’s as if all my lisa frank dreams came true. and okay, it’s just an albino dolphin, but still! it’s PINK! πŸ˜€


  42. July 28, 2010 / 5:51 pm

    Love it! I adore pretty paper and pretty stationery.

    My favourite animal would have to be a tiger or a lion. I just adore those big cats. They are so fast and powerful. Plus lions are kings of the jungle πŸ™‚

  43. July 28, 2010 / 5:53 pm

    okay, just put a tweet up too.


  44. July 28, 2010 / 5:53 pm

    SOOO cute! I love them all but I think I like the panda the best. They are the cutest!

    I agree with the Queen of the Click – if you added a wiener dog, I’d be ALL over that!

  45. July 28, 2010 / 6:09 pm

    I went to Janie’s blog and entered her giveaway too! Crossing my fingers…

  46. July 28, 2010 / 7:40 pm

    i am partial to the owl. i love how they represent wisdom and have a mysterious quality. moose are another incredibly interesting animal to me, but in real life i am a big cat lover. there’s nothing like having a feline friend for fifteen years.
