Silhouette SD Giveaway!




So.  Here is the deal.  I sent the people from Silhouette an email.  Pretty much cause I was bummed that I never won one of the 32 Silhouette Giveaways that all the awesome bloggers were hosting… so then I get an email back.  Lo and behold my blog was awesome enough to host one!

Fo reals.

Silhouette SD

So they so kindly sent me one and I love it.  I named her Madonna,  because before her I was a vinyl virgin. And guess what?!?!  Madonna has a twin sister that wants to come and live with YOU!

So here is what you will win:

1 Silhouette SD, 1 roll of premium black vinyl, 1 roll of premium frosted vinyl, a roll of transfer paper, and a home décor CD.  That’s a value of $375+ people!

Here is how to enter:

MANDATORY: You must show the world that you love my guts by publicly Following Vintage Revivals (like as in click the follow button in the left toolbar) I am in love and I don’t care who knows it! (Name that movie) and leave a comment ON THIS EXACT POST about how much you want to win.

2. You must follow the Silhouette blog also if you don’t already.  Which is freakin awesome, cause they do tuts every week AND have free downloads. Tell them that your favorite blogger sent you. Er….that would be me. mmmkay thanks.

Optional Entries:

1. Tweet the crap out of this post.

2. Facebook it.

3. And as always preform a random act of kindness and make the world a better place.

The Giveaway will end on Sunday Febuary 27, 2011.  I will announce the winner on Monday the 28.

Also I have an awesome discount code that will get you everything listed above for the freakin low price of $225 (that’s over $150.00 off.) by entering the code VINTAGE and for those of you who are LUCKY enough to already own a Silhouette you can use the code VINTAGE to get 25% off all vinyl. Cause that’s how much we love your guts.

Click the pic to buy some!


Make sure you check back on Wednesday to see what I did with Madonna….that kinda sounds gross.

Here are other blogs in blogland that are hosting a giveaway also! Go and up your chances!!

    That line is from Elf!!!

    Thanks so much for the discount code…even if I don’t win the Silhouette….I need some vinyl immediately for a project I have in mind. I’ll just cut it by hand till I can afford the machine.

    (Following you and Silhouette)

  240. I’m a cotton-headed ninny-muggins who really wants to win! I LOVE Elf! I am following your blog! :)

  241. I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite. I would definitely smile if I won this Silhouette….I’ve been a follower of their blog for a long time…i love all of their projects they post. My favorite I think was baby onesie a few months back. It was adorable. :)

  242. 1) I publicly follow you
    2) Elf
    3) I follow Silhouette

  243. I follow Silhoutte and you! Your blog is so fun!

  244. I myself am a vinyl virgin!! But I so badly want to take that plunge!!!!!!! Please oh please! My whole entire house would become vinyly adorned if I were to win this! Unfortunately, the pocket book won’t allow for me to just go buy one!!!

  245. I’m a faithful follower of your blog … it’s awesome!

  246. I follow Silhouette’s blog as well!

  247. I am a blog follower! Say it loud, say it proud!! Okay sorry got distracted there, I love all your freaktastic creations!
    I would love to win this because 1. Hubs and I agreed that I could only make one major crafting purchase(over $100) a year and I finally bought a new sewing machine a few months ago.. 2. I’m also kinda bummed that I didn’t win one of the million other Silhouette giveaways, so this would totally make my year if I won!!

  248. I also follow the Silhouette blog dreaming of all the awesome things I can do with one if/when I ever get one.

  249. I have been a RSS feed follower for quite a while and now I’m following publicly on here as well. Not that I wanted to be private with the whole RSS feed thing. I just signed up to it, before I even had a google account. 😉
    I LOVE your ideas and love reading your blog!

    Winning a Silhouette would definitely make my day, week, month and year! I’ve never really won anything so cool (and worth more than $5..)!

  250. Yesterday at the grocery, I let the mom behind me with 3 kids with her go in front of me even though I was in a super hurry, does that count as my RAK?

  251. I was so sad about not winning one in January that I finally broke down and bought one on Saturday. But I would still love to win one. Of course I am a follower of both Vintage Revivals and silhouette. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  252. Now I am a new follower to the Silhouette blog and left a comment as well! :)

  253. I also facebooked it! :)

  254. I am already a follower of the Silhouette blog! It’s pretty much a daily read. You know, to prepare me for when I finally get one of my very own!

  255. I follow you crazy cute blog! And dude, I want one of these so bad. SO BAD! I think I entered all 32 giveaways last time. I am begging you woman, pick me! 😀

  256. In Germany you get a little receipt from a parking meter to place in your car behind your windshield. Yesterday, I still had 25 minutes left on my receipt and even though it was -10°C, I got out of the car to run up to a random person, who was about to pay for their ticket, and handed it to them.
    Does that count as a random act of kindness? 😉

  257. I am a follower of your fabulous blog. I am also a follower of the silhouette blog….even though I don’t have one. Please help my luck change!

  258. I just found your blog from ucreate, and I think I am in love! I think the silhouette needs to come and live at my house! :)

    Today I’m gathering some of my other mom friends to make goody bags and notes of encouragement for the teachers at a low-income school near us. None of us have kids old enough for school, but some of us used to teach in low-income school and know that these teachers rarely get any treats. Spread the love!

  295. Well OF COURSE I follow you! I just got a new home and have no idea how to decorate it. Then I found you (Angels singing Hallelujah!) and I want to make every. single. project. You totally inspire me! I would LOVE to adopt Madonna’s twin. I would take her in and love her like she was my own! But, I’m not going to lie, I would totally make her earn her keep. PS I LOVE that you name things, I do to! It makes things work better, don’t you think?

  296. What a great giveaway! I’m ready to move on from my Cricut to this awesome little machine. Can’t wait to win it.

That’s what I would name her if she came to live with me. (I have this thing when I name things, they have to start with the same letter. Weird? Yes.) Silvia Silhouette. Sounds like a classy lady!

  304. I follow your blog! I’m going to keep entering these until I stinking win one. My husband wants one of these so badly (weird, I know). I’d love to be able to give it to him for our anniversary!

  309. I was eating out with my family and noticed that the table next to me had left their room key on the table. So I picked it up and chased them down through the parking lot to their hotel and gave them back their room key. I’m pretty sure they thought I was crazy! But I didn’t think they would get very far without it. Silvia would be so proud! :)

  310. Oh Im also a follower of the silhouette blog now too… super excited about that!

  365. I follow your amazing blog and of course the silhouette blog too. I would LOVE to win this! I have put in for it on so many wonderful blogs and have never been the lucky winner. My sweet hubby is deploying in june for a year and I know our daughters and I would love to use this to make him all sorts of goodies to send to him. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

  366. I also facebooked about this awesome post and blog!

  367. So excited about the silhouette! Looks like that thing could keep me busy with projects for decades! I’d love to have one and there’s no way we could afford it otherwise, so it’d be a real treat. Thanks!!!

  368.

  370. I hope to someday own a Silhouette, winning one would be some much cooler than actually buying one!!!!! I found you by way of a relative’s post on FB. I knew I would love this site especially when there in your Blog Header it says”Love Yer Guts”. My dear sister, who passed away at the young age of 29, used to say that and I have never, ever heard anyone else ever say that….I Love it. Thanks for making my day not once, but twice!
    Elaine B.

  371. please – i am a vinyl virgen and desperalty would love to not be…and i now follow you and the silhouette blog.

  372. I follow you… I love buddy the elf…. and I follow silhouette. I have wanted SILHOUETTE FOREVER!! But funds don’t allow when you are putting your husband through school!

  373. I love your blog and the many things you do. I have been eying a Silhouette and really want one. I’m now a follower of the Silhouette blog. Hope I win and if I don’t, I hope the pennies add up someday.

  374. I’m already a follower, and I’m a new follower of the Silhouette blog! (I never knew they even had a blog!) And… I really, really want to win. 😉

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  377. And now I follow Silhouette’s blog! (Again, another exclamation point)

  378. I just added both blogs to my follower. Wow, I could do a million things including labeling everythin in the house with vinyl letters. I’ve wanted one for ever but really can’t afford one right now with out winning the lottery or this one. Here is to hoping.

  379. I want a Silhouette so badly it hurts! I’m a follower of both you and the Silhouette blog!! I dream of how fabulous my house and my gifts would be if only I had a Silhouette!! :)

  380. Hi! I just found your blog through Kari, and man do I feel deprived. So in love!!!! I am for sure a follow and can’t wait to see what you come up with next. I would love to win a Silhouette, I have wanted one for SOOOOO long, but they have been out of my reach. As a mother of 5 I have a hard time spending money on myself.

  381. I bought extra cool paper for another student in my book binding class ’cause I knew she would think it was fantastic. It was all of 1$ but she thought it was great. I think that was a RAK random act of Kindness. I can’t wait to see what she creates with it, as she gives her new books to her friends and let’s us in class peek before she hands them off.

  382. The Movie is ELF! I am a follower of your blog. I lOvE it and check it everyday sometimes multiple times, uh, is that creepy?! Your blog is awesome and I love you ideas! I hope I win cuz we just moved (boo!) and I have some major projct in the works that I need a madonna of my very own. Thanks for the great give away!

  383. And I tweeted! And will continue to tweet!! 😉 (@jriverblossom)
    (Are you counting the exclamation points?! I want The Twin so bad!)

  384. I am a follower of Silhouette blog and left them a comment. I hope I win, I hope I win!

  385. I am stuck with a substandard Cricut cutter. I NEEEEDDDD need need a Silhouette. I am a follower of both blogs and Elf is the movie. “It’s just nice to meet another human that shares my affinity for elf culture.” :)

  386. You better believe I’m a public follower! Love your blog.

  387. I love your blog its so creative! I want to win this silhouette!

  388. I’m following the Silhouette blog now!

  389. My random act of kindness is that I am watching my nephew for my sick sister-in-law.

  390. I am now following Silhouette. If only I had one so that I could use all of the wonderful ideas!

  391. So I just found your blog through the infamous Kari. And low and behold you have a fantastic giveaway! And I am thinking you are pretty hilarious! I hope you have a great day! BTW I am now a loyal follower!

  392. I found you through Ucreate, I want to win this so bad! I am now a follower of your blog!

  393. OMIGOSH! YES! PLEASE! I’m following you and Silhouette!! If I win I’ll call her Lady Gaga and she’ll try to express herself exactly like Madonna! 😉


  394. I follow Silhouettes Blog.

  395. Ok…I guess you are wanting us to write about a R.A.K.: my husband left his laptop at home this morning so I loaded up the kids and we drove to hubby’s work to deliver the much needed technology so he could give presentations that day :)

  396. I Love you on facebook!

  398. I found you via UCreate and now follow you and Silhouette, which I would L-O-V-E to win! Love your AWESOME blog and eager to read backwards–well not ACTUALLY backwards–but read previous entries to see what I’ve totally missed out on!

And last but not least… I want to win this so bad because like you… I have entered so many silhouette contests but I NEVER win! Hopefully I can this time around!

  405. I follow both you and Silhouette (Sofia B). I’ve always wanted to have one of this but it is too expensive!! But I would love to have one! I have so many projects that I could do with a Silhouette!


  406. I would so love to win this!!

  407. ELF!!!! is the name of the movie! [love it] AND I so want to win this silhouette! I am also in love with the mirrors you did; I went to a thrift store the weekend after seeing them on studio 5 looking for mirrors. Found one that I loved until I saw the price tag of $250.00 [seriously??] so and am still looking! I am a new follower and I <3 your guts! I just posted on fb for all the world to see! HOPE I WIN! Thanks for the chance!

  410. OH! I forgot – I already follow Silhouette…

  411. Following you! I’m pretty sure Elf – watched that Christmas day in the hospital with my sweet little boy who was sick. And to win would rock my socks off because a. I homeschool and it would be such a great addition to our routine and b. I could stop bugging my husband who just doesn’t get it!

  412. I would LOVE to win, I can’t even tell you how much!

  413. Me, me, me, me!!! please pretty please pick me!!I have a cricut and love it but the cartridges can get really expensive so a Silhouette would be AMAZING to have!! Love your blog, btw.
    act of kindness: I opened the classroom door for a kindergartener who had his hands full, he turned to me and said “Thank you ma’am!!” so adorable! : )

  414. Hi, Just found your blog through Ucreate and I am now a follower – love your stuff!

  415. I am now a follower of Silhouette as well!

  416. I facebooked your blog!

  417. My RAOK today was to not buy the rest of the bolt of fabric I loved at the quilt store. I left 1/2yd for another lady who loved it! Does that count??? LOL

  418. I twetted (@beckywaldrop) and will continue to do so until the giveaway is over!!

  419. I’ve been a follower of Silhouette for a while, and am a new follower of your blog. Thank you for sharing your story and this wonderful giveaway.

  423. I want to win dang freakin bad and I follow you

  424. I follow silhouette blog also. I’d follow them to the ends of the earth. Not really, but maybe…

  430. tweeted! @Nathania_H

  431. I facebooked it (chelsea alexander) but how will you check it since you don’t have facebook?

    Either way I told people to come look at the link but not to enter because I want it. Which is what I did with Twitter, too :)

    chelsealexander at hotmail

  432. What an awesome blog you have here! I just found you through ucreate. So now I’m a follower, and I already follow silhouette. I hope I win!

  433. Act of kindness…although, this probably shouldn’t count. I woke up at 7:30am (about an hour and some change before my alarm) and drove my husband to the airport an hour away. He’s out of town for the rest of the week and tomorrow’s my birthday. I know it shouldn’t count as ‘kindness’ because he’s my one true love, but c’mon, it was soooo early and he could have taken himself.

    Either way, love you, love your blog, wish I had your energy.

    Now I’m off to make some cookies for a sick friend.

    chelsealexander at hotmail

  434. Randon acts of kindness?. this little old tootheless man was digging for bottles in the dumpster yesterday, and even though my hubby and i can’t afford rent and food this month, we gave him 8 bags full of bottles. He was so incredibly happy he zoomed off in his little tiny car to the bottle depot.

  435. I absolutely love your blog. I think you are the most ingenious person. Seriously tell all my friends all the neat things you are up to. Your inspire me thanks tons

  504. I’ve been watching your blog for a few months, but now I’m a public follower!

  505. i would LOVE to win this…!am a follower of your blog!

  506. I need this machine in my life more than words can express! With our tax return money my husband & I agreed to be super strict and use almost every bit of it to pay down our like $10,000 medical bill debt which was accrued from my son being born 3 months early and his 8 week stay in the NICU. Can I add to the sob story? The hospital he was staying at was over 300 miles away from our house so we only got to visit him on weekends. :( AAANNYway… We agreed on one “spoil me” item each, he’s getting a metal detector and I am getting a silhouette. Buuuut, if I got a free one, I could spend my “spoil me” money on shoes and clothes!!! Or more BORING bills… we’ll see!

  507. (I don’t know what just happened to the first comment – so here goes a second time)

    Subscribed to your awesome blog, and following the Silhouette blog too! If I could get my hands on one of these Silhouettes, the possibilities are absolutely endless! Pick me, pick me….

  508. I’m now a follower of the Silouette blog too!!

    Happy Blogging!

My potential project list is about a mile long… 😉

  521. I am now a follower and will be for LIFE!! I LOVE your blog!

  522. I am a follower of the Silhouette blog!!

  532. I follow silhouette too!

  533. I am a new follower (came over from Ucreate) and I LOVE your blog AND much like you, I NEED to win one of these silhouette machines!!

  534. I followed you and Silhouette’s blog. I’m here nearly everyday anyway.. and plus why not start another crafting obsession with Silhouette. So First off you’re the bomb and I did my first thrift glam project this weekend, a 3.88 find at goodwill. Also its my birthday on March 1st so if i won this silhouette that would be the best birthday present everrr! (especially because I’m only asking for a quesadilla maker.. haha)

  535. I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! Your zebra rug makes me drool! I NEED a silhoutte!!! I neeeeeeeed it!! Please pick me!! Ok that’s enough of this 30 year old acting like a 3 year old;) I’ve wanted a silhoutte ever since I started blogging and saw how many AWESOME crafts I could do with it! I’m unemployed right now, and we just dont have the extra $300 to throw around on a craft machine (hubbys words, not mine…thought I see his point!) Anyways, Id love to win. Thanks for the opportunity:) I also am following their blog too!

  536. I am a DEVOTED “Vintage Revivals” Follower!

  537. I am a Silhouette blog follower!

  538. Would it help if I begged?? On my knees?? This is a fab give-away and I hope I win so everyone can be jealous of moi!

  539. I follow your blog!

  540. I am already a follower of Silhouette! I like to check out their ideas and drool over what I could do if I was cool enough to own one!

  541. I love your blog and read it every night, but being a follower will make that much easier (never followed anyone before)! I am a med student/ soon to be OB/GYN resident and craft in my limited free time … I would LOVE TO win a silhouette cause I certainly can’t afford one!!

  542. would love this machine for my sister and i to share she would be so thrilled:}. loving the silhouette blog as well! thanks for giving us a chance to win:}

  543. I’m so unlucky… but maybe, just maybe Monday will be my day! I’m a follower of your blog and LOVE you projects! I’m also a follower of Silhouette and love to see their fun projects, but can’t play along without the machine :( Make me a winner!!

  544. …..i not only follow both blogs… BUT.. i also perform random acts of kindness :)

  545. I FOLLOW YOU! And I – like you – am bummed that I’ve never won one of the 32 million Silhouette giveaways I’ve entered. I even got my SIL to enter and she said she’d give it to me if she won – because she didn’t know what to do with it. And then she won and didn’t give it to me. What the??? LOL

  546. I follow the Silhouette blog!

  547. I tweeted.

  548. I FBed it!

  549. I performed a random act of kindness – cuz they are awesome.

  550. This is my first time on your blog, I saw you featured on Ucreate, and may I say you are amazing! I am now a follower of your blog and I follow Silhouette. I have been wanting a Silhouette for such a long time. I so wish I could afford one. I would LOVE to be able to make some really fun crafts. So here’s hoping!

  551. Thank you sooo much for this giveaway. I am now a follower. I want one of these machines so bad I can’t see straight!!!! I have lots of ideas and no way to make use of them!!!!!! I’m glad I found your blog. I love it!

  552. I am a follower of the silhouette blog already but I went over and told them you sent me! Thank you for the great giveaway!

  553. I will love you forever and ship you my first born if I win this Silhouette. I love everything about them and am jealous I can’t make beautiful items with them. I joined your awesome blog and the silhouette’s blog as well.

    P.S. I rescind my first born because she may be more trouble than good at this point. Six year olds think they know everything and she’s a bit bossy and mouthy at times. I really want to win so I won’t torture you with her =).

    P.P.S. You are seriously amazing Mandi! I first became hooked with your teacup clock and I check in every now and again and am amazed by everything you do.

  554. I publicly love your guts. Serious.

    Also serious, how badly i need this silhouette for my upcoming wedding. I can think of SO many DIY crafts that would save me SO MUCH money. I really hope to win! If i won, I’d start my own blog to document all the awesome ways I use it!

  555. I’m a follower. I want a silhouette soooooo bad! i heart the frosted vinyl! I want to re-do my pantry jars with it.

  556. I follow the Silhouette Blog!

    And am coveting one even more…

  557. I tweet-tweet-tweeted

  558. Ok I follow your awesome blog and I’m following Silhouette’s blog. I’ve been looking into purchasing one of these because living in Okinawa, Japan makes it incredibly hard to find crafting things. So….”Oo! Oo! Pick me!” 😉

  559. How cool would it be to own a Silhouette. I would be tagging my house left and right!!!!I’m a follower of both you and Silhouette. Pick me, pick me, pick me!!!
    PS-Movie quote=ELF!!!!!!!

  560. I am following you, fingers crossed I want to win!

  561. I’m a new follower!! LOVE your blog!!

  562. Just followed them on facebook!

  563. I definitely follow the Silhouette blog!

  564. I’m a follower and now a follower of the silhouette blog. I soooo need this awesome little machine. I have been drooling over it for a while and planning all the awesomeness I will create with it!
    I LOVE your blog and think you are freaken fantastic lady!!

  565. Yeh, I totally just found your blog via… well shoot, I already refreshed my Google Reader. Just know someone is out there saying “Hey, go look at Vintage Revival!!”. After seeing that tea lamp, how could I not fall in love and follow your blog?

    Secondly, I consider myself a Silhouette whore. I know, some people in blogland don’t like “curse” words, but if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck….. So, I am po’ right now and can’t afford a silhouette, but I so lust over them. I imagine that if I owned a Silhouette, I would turn into a new person. This person would be organized, and oh so trendy with subway art and labeled mason jars.

    Anywho, I follow you, I follow Silhouette. Hooray!

  566. oooh! Your blog is so cute!…. and now you are having a silhouette give away too! Oh my lanta! i’ve got my fingers crossed! (i’ve been downloading all the free shapes…someday i will be able to use them!!)

  567. Following and following. I am not a tweeter cuz I don’t need another thing to put me in a hypnotic trance but I love you anyway.
    My reason…it’s all been said but let me say, I am like #600 or something poster, so I may be late to the party but at least I didn’t miss it. I’ll cut me a mustache out of vinyl and wear it around town…k maybe around my house for 5 minutes…while doing laundry…K, I really don’t win things my husband uses our luck up on funny things so, really just posting love your blog and it was a good excuse to follow.

  568. I’m following your blog and Silhouette. And I think you’re pretty awesome that you’d just email them. Sounds like something I would want to do but wouldn’t quite have the guts (or maybe just be too lazy) to do.

  569. I facebooked it.

  570. Love yer guts! Been following for quite some time now, love ya!

  571. I am following the silhouette blog, yes siree.
