Poe Day 13 - and a giveaway

Remember this?Well, it's finally time to reveal what it turned into.
Well, it's all wrapped up in this:(I used crumpled waxed paper and sewed on a card with an imaged that I stamped. I think that the stamp is from Red Lead). So I made this pin keep. Actually, the felt can be removed from the middle and it can be a little "pocket book" Or a signature of paper can be sewn in to make a little book.
This is the cover:(the Raven is actually sparkly, but you can't tell in this photo)
inside the front cover:
inside the back cover:the back cover:
I'm going to give away one of these to one lucky commenter on this post. You don't have to be a blogger, but you do have to leave me some way to reach you. I'm going to draw the lucky person on Wednesday, October 28, which just happens to be my birthday!
(I'm going to draw the name at 10 pm EST)

See, now the world has embraced so much more hand craft, things like pin keeps and pin cushions are once again becoming needed items.

I have my beautiful Rosie LeCouer right here in front of me, so I really shouldn't enter to win. But I LOVE your Poe pin keeper so much, so I'm going to be selfish. :)

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY a couple of days early! Hugs, Tam
