Update!
We are ecstatic to announce that because of sales and donations so far, because of *you*, we were able to adopt Cake into our home! She is adjusting, but still very wary of strangers and a bit insecure, but purrs a lot and is getting more and more affectionate each day. She has an appt to be spayed on June 30th (same date as the drawing!), and still needs to get in to see a regular vet, so the money earned from this celebration sale will still be going to help her get all settled in!

Thank you!



Different prizes will be revealed one at a time, and the Grand Prize winner will get to choose which one they want! New and exciting prizes will be revealed as we get closer to the drawing date! And the more entries there are, the bigger the prizes will get! :D

Newest Prize Option! A Monster Nursery Monsterhead Pillow!

The Monster Nursery Monsterhead Pillows are *very* soft and cuddly and the perfect thing to snuggle up to while watching a movie at home, reading a book, or even taking a nap. Each one is about 13-14" wide and 9-10" tall. They are all hand made so each one's a little bit different. They have minky on the front, soft monster fur on the back, and are stuffed with polyfil. They have embroidery floss noses, and their eyes are minky covered buttons, and sewn to be secure (they are more secure than standard clothing buttons, but still not recommended for young children unsupervised, because they can be a choking hazard if pulled/cut off).

 From left to right: black minky with baby blue monster fur & baby blue floss nose and minky eyes, baby pink minky with black monster fur & black floss nose and minky eyes, black minky with tan monster fur & tan floss nose & camel minky eyes, bright pink minky with black monster fur & black floss nose and minky eyes. Each one also has a handmade Monster Nursery tag, so you know it's an original!

Update: June 17, 2010

We are ecstatic to announce that because of sales and donations so far, because of *you*, we were able to adopt Cake into our home! She is adjusting, but still very wary of strangers and a bit insecure, but purrs a lot and is getting more and more affectionate each day. She has an appt to be spayed on June 30th (same date as the drawing!), and still needs to get in to see a regular vet, so the money earned from this celebration sale will still be going to help her get all settled in!

Thank you!


(Cake's full story is here)
Cake is a very sweet and timid cat that was abandoned and has no home. We've been feeding and looking out for her outside, but we really want her to be a member of our family, and not be on the street. She’s cross-eyed and has difficulty with depth perception and really needs to be an indoor cat. Since we didn't have a Month of Celebration (MoC) Drawing in October this last year, we thought that a Cake Celebration and drawing would be just the thing! June is also special month at the Monster Nursery because it’s the month of the Monster Maker’s birthday! And what better way to celebrate than with a Birthday Cake! *heehee* :D

This Birthday Cake Celebration is a little different than the Month of Celebration events. Not just because of Cake, but because of the way we're doing the drawing this time. Although it works the same way as before, instead of just buying a raffle/drawing ticket, when you buy one of our special Monster Nursery wallpaper backgrounds, you automatically get entered into our drawing to win the Grand Prize! They are the same price as the raffle tickets were, but now you get a wallpaper! Bonus! :D Any payments made above $5 (or any amount specifically designated as such) will be treated as a donation to Cake’s adoption and vet fund and not count as additional entries. If you don’t want to be entered into the drawing but still want to help out, just add a note to your payment, and it will be done.

Different prizes will be revealed one at a time, and the Grand Prize winner will get to choose which one they want! New and exciting prizes will be revealed as we get closer to the drawing date!

Since our very first birthday, every October is the Month of Celebration (MoC) at the Monster Nursery! Since our birthday is on the 1st and Halloween is on the 31st, the Monsters celebrate the whole month long! To share in the fun, we hold a raffle for great Monster prizes! Last year, however, our family was struck with tragedy, and there was very little celebrating going on. As some of you know, our Monster family has had a little cat-shaped hole in our hearts since our sweet Miette got very ill and passed away suddenly last fall. We got sick too, and had to move to over the holidays to get into a healthy living environment. After two moves in as many months, and ended up where we are now…

 

 

...which is where Cake came into the picture.

(read Cake's full story here)

Cake is a very sweet and timid cat that was abandoned and has no home. We've been feeding and looking out for her outside, but we really want her to be a member of our family, and not be on the street. She’s cross-eyed and has difficulty with depth perception and really needs to be an indoor cat. We’re also concerned she might be pregnant again (or will be soon!) and we need to get her spayed ASAP. The problem is that because of the financial and health damage the moves (and crooked landlords) did to us, the pet deposit (for our own apt) and vet fees are out of our reach.

So we had a Monster family meeting, to try and figure out a way to help Cake become a family member. Since we didn't have a Month of Celebration (MoC) Raffle in October this last year, we thought that a Birthday Cake Celebration Raffle would be just the thing! June is also special month at the Monster Nursery because it’s the month of the Monster Maker’s birthday! And what better way to celebrate than with a Birthday Cake! *heehee* :D

This raffle is going to be a little different than the Month of Celebration raffles. Not just because of Cake, but because of the prizes!  Different prizes will be revealed one at a time, and the Grand Prize winner will get to choose which one they want! New prizes will be revealed as the number of tickets sold goes up, and the more money raised for Cake, the more exciting the prizes get!

Raffle tickets are only a dollar, and you can have as many as 5 tickets in the raffle drawing. Any payments made above $5 (or any amount specifically designated as such) will be treated as a donation to Cake’s adoption fund and not count as additional raffle tickets. If you don’t want to be entered into the raffle, but still want to help out the Cake fund, just add a note to your payment, and it will be done.

 

 The fun stuff! Prizes! 

The first prize option to choose from is one of our Monster Nursery hand painted cell phone charms!

These charms are made up of a silver tone (pewter, I think) oval charm with a word indented on the back. The brown one says 'Laugh', the green one says 'Imagine', and the pink one says 'Live'. On the other side is a super wee Monster, hand painted by me, and sealed to be water and scuff resistant (but please still use care!). Each Monster stone is securely attached to a cell phone charm strap with a split ring, and are accented with a hand wrapped 3mm Swarovski bicone crystal bead. The brown one has in Shadow Crystal, the green one has an Emerald crystal, and the pink one is accented by a Rose crystal.

 

As tickets sell, more prize options will be added to the raffle, so check back here or on our Monster Nursery Facebook page for updates!

All the Monsters are very upset to hear about this.

These two little bears were lost on January 24th, at 11:00 a.m. while at the Bay street 16 movie theatre in Emeryville, California. Their family's heartbroken and are offering *$1,000* reward for their safe return!

Here's a news story about them and the reward:


Please spread the word around, especially if you know someone in that area! We'd be heartbroken if we lost a Monster. :(

It's the moment you've all been waiting for! (well, if you want to win the raffle) The last set of prizes to choose from! And as promised, these items have never been seen or up for adoption/sale on the Monster Nursery site!

Monsterhead Scarves!

The Grand Prize Winner will get to choose not only a Monster Nursery Holiday Stocking, *and* a Monster Nursery Monsterhead Pillow, but *also* choose a Monster Nursery Monsterhead Scarf from the ones below!


These scarves are super cute and very warm! They not only keep the winter chill off of your neck, but you look stylin' at the same time! A great way to add a fun accent in a sea of drab winter wear.

More scarf photos and details under the cut!Collapse )

The winner will also get to choose a Monsterhead Pillow, and a Monster Nursery Holiday Stocking from the photos posted earlier. The combined value of all 3 prize choices is over $100!

Today is the last day to buy tickets! They are only $1 each, and you can buy as many as you like! We've sold quite a few tickets already, but if you've been waiting for the last prize to be revealed, there's still time to get yours before it's too late! Tickets will be on sale until 11:59pm on October 30th, 2008. The drawing will be on October 31st, no later than 5pm PST.
