Contest: Free GEEKSOAP Giveaway!

Posted in Contests, Soapmaking , on March 18, 2010 ,

Woohoo, a contest! There’s been lots of new, big changes to celebrate here at The Pink Toque lately. In celebration of the new Binary 3D GEEKSOAP Massage Soap, GEEKSOAP’s recent switch to the new mold designs (bigger and better!) and the blog’s move over to the new domain here at THEpinktoque.com, I’m giving away some FREE GEEKSOAP! Two winners will be chosen at random, and winners will receive their choice of one free bar from my GEEKSOAP line. Completely 100% free – no shipping, no charges, no nothing… just FREE geeky soap showing up in your mailbox! There’s two ways to enter, so be sure to up your chances to win by entering both ways :)

How To Enter:
1. Complete the official contest entry form:

All you have to do is tell me your favorite GEEKSOAP design AND/OR suggest a NEW GEEKSOAP design you’d like to see in the future along with your name and email. Never fear – email addresses are required for winner notification purposes only; your privacy is safe by entering!

2. Twitter. All you have to do is tweet this message: RT @geeksoap I am entering to #win a #FREE bar of GEEKSOAP http://www.geeksoap.net #geek #soap #contest #handmade #etsy. You can tweet this message once per day every day of the contest to up your chances of winning!

I will be choosing two winners at random from all entries next Thursday, March 25, after 12pm/noon EST. One winner will be chosen at random from the entries via the contest entry form, and one entry will be chosen at random from all of the tweeted entries. Each person will be notified ASAP Thursday, March 25 after 12pm/noon EST and be given the opportunity to pick one GEEKSOAP design for free as their prize! The free GEEKSOAP will be shipped to the winners no later than Monday, March 29. Contest is open to residents of the US and Canada only, sorry!

Multiple entries are allowed on the ContestMachine entry form if you have multiple suggestions for new GEEKSOAP ideas, or just can’t pick one favorite. Multiple entries via Twitter are allowed as long as you limit yourself to one RT per day. Good luck to everyone who enters!

Need more details about GEEKSOAP? It’s vegan friendly and lovingly handmade by yours truly. You can find the ingredients listing on any of the bars on display in the soap Portfolio. GEEKSOAP comes shrink wrapped to protect and seal in the freshness. It makes a lovely gift and/or novelty item for decorating your bathroom or other space, but works equally well for its original intended purpose: washing! Creates fantastic bubbly suds but rinses completely free of residue for an awesome geeky clean you can’t get anywhere else. Leaves your skin feeling soft :) Winners can choose your free GEEKSOAP bar from any of the designs posted in my soap Portfolio or on Etsy. If applicable to the bar you’ve chosen, you may also specify a custom soap color. Your chances of winning depend on the number of entries per method of entry (two separate methods of entry – the entry form and Twitter).

GOOD LUCK and happy washing :)


Fabulous Resources & I Was Featured!

Posted in Miscellaneous , on March 1, 2009 ,

Tweet! Tweet!

I wanted to share some really neat resources I’ve been lucky enough to be made aware of recently. First of all, I’m twittering!  Yes that’s right, I have become hip and have started leaving little tweets about things going on in life, both crafty and otherwise!  It’s oddly satisfying. If you want to follow me on twitter (or want me to follow you on twitter!) check me out at http://www.twitter.com/pinktoque :) There are SO many crafty people already out there sharing their tweets, and I really like trying to keep up — I see so many neat crafts and cool things that way… it’s very inspiring!

This week I learned about a great online printing service called Viovio.com. Viovio.com was shared with me by one of my blog readers, Sarah, who says, “I’ve really had a great experience with them.  One of the first books I ordered had a wrinkle in it and they replaced it free of charge since it was their mistake.  Also, they print 12×12 pages (loose) for $.75…The cheapest I have found.” Wait, did she say $.75 per full-colour 12″x12″ sheet? That’s insane! So I went over and checked it out, signed up, etc. The latest from Sarah is, “I should be getting my fourth order from viovio this weekend.  I’ve order a 12×12, 10×10, 8.5×8.5 and recently ordered loose 12×12.  LOL  I’ve seen a good variety.  I like the paper used for the 10×10 and bigger best, but the 8.5*8.5 is cheap and makes a good gift book.” Can’t beat prices and customer service like that! Say hello to my new favourite online printing service!

The last site I want to share is ArtFire.com — it’s like Etsy, but free! No listing fees and no fees when you sell things. Of course there is a free user and premium user choice when you sign up, and the premium user naturally gets more options when setting up their online studio (how many pictures you can put up, how many items can be for sale at one time), but… for someone like me that just wants to sell a little here and there when I have it, it’s great and… free. This has inspired me to try and get some things up soon when I have a chance. I’ll let you know when I’m all set up and actually have something available to sell!

Oh and WOW I just have to share… I was honoured to realize that my custom handpainted Mahjong set that I made for Lucas for Valentine’s day (see previous entry) was chosen as one of the Feb 19 featured projects on craftster! This makes me blush! I’m so glad people have enjoyed it :) Check me out on the front page!

And there you have it this weekend! I feel bad that I have a pretty pink Huug the Hug Monster © that is just sitting there waiting to be finished (along with that sweater I’d started working on a month ago) but work has been busy and I feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day on the weekend to get everything done! More crafty stuff coming soon, I promise :) Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
