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!
(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!
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.
And here's the next prize option - One of my fine art prints! There are 7 different pieces to choose from in either an 8x10" size, or 6x8" (and mounted on velvet/suede paper to 8x10"). So, so far, the grand prize winner will be able to choose a cell phone charm, or an art print....so far. And the prizes will just keep getting better as they get revealed!
As we get closer to the drawing date, more prize options will be added to the options, so check back here or on our Monster Nursery Facebook page for updates!
