Witch BOO't Giveaway!! Enter now!

Or a copy of my Paper Mache Witch BOO't Tutorial!

So, you know how I like to write short poems for my paper mache witch boots? Well, I think it would be cool for all you loyal followers of this blog to take a stab at it this time. Come on, it'll be fun! Don't fret if you're not a wordsmith. It's not a competition. Just give it a try, and I promise you're hard work will be rewarded. You'll even be entered for a chance to win this very boot!

I'm going to have a two part drawing:

One lucky winner chosen from a drawing of all who create verses will win my "Star-crossed Lovebirds" Witch BOO't. Just put a few words together in any poetry form of your choice. I have an additional prize for all who take the time to submit a verse. Not only will you be entered in the drawing for the boot and tutorials, but you can receive a printable digital copy of the "Star-crossed Lovebirds" boot image with a copy of the verses submitted as my personal "Thank You" for being such a good sport. Don't forget to include how you would like your name to be credited on your poem.

Example poem:

"The raven is black. The moon is white.
The birds on this boot better take flight tonight!"
- by mieljolie

Tiffany great work on this-and that toe is perfect-nice drama to it! The wind in your feathers a skull at your back Highlight your eyes so sexy and black! LOL (-Oh Oh! is this a pg-13 Blog?)

Okay Part 2 of poem! The wind in your feathers, a skull at your back Highlight your eyes so sexy and black But alas my love,soon we must fly For in full scope of these cats we certainly shall die So beckon our wings to depart from this wall For our fate shall be written in blood should we stall And Raven and Ravenette will no longer be But a pile of bent feathers of you and me.

OOOO, Cathi....I love that one! What a great start! Going to be tough to follow, I'm sure. LOVED the last line! "...pile of bent feathers of you and me." LOVE it!

This is going to be SO fun! Everyone, please don't be intimidated by Cathi's word skillz. This is NOT a competition. Just a drawing. BTW, I told myself I wouldn't clog up this post's comment section with all my blathering replies, but I had to comment. I'm going to try to stay quiet in here. It's hard to resist. Wish me luck. :)


mieljolie said...

Oh, and yes, lets keep it PG-17. ;D

Wow, fun giveaway!! Great work on the boot! Oh boy a poem, not to good with those.

Okay, here goes:
Two little birds kissing on a gate
Along came a cat and...ate!!!

I know that doesn't compare to the awesome poem above!

Leah said...

Love the boot!! and the giveaway challenge. Here is my entry:

Resigned to our fate
We sit upon this gate.
While under the eyes of the moon
I will sing a lover’s tune
As we wait for black to announce
Their presence with a pounce.

Leah said...

I added your button and link on the side bar of my blog. I really love your boots! I am happy to spread the word!

There once was a gal named Miel
Who made witch boots particularly well.
You best keep your money
She won't sell you one, honey
She's giving one (but don't anyone tell).

More chances for us to win it!

mieljolie said...

Haha, Connie!! But, that's not nice. Not giving others a chance to own a boot. Besides, you already own one! LOL! ;)


Hullabuoy said...

Funny stuff!I have no idea where the poem came from-I guess you just inspired me!!!LOL AND-the tutorial is great! I have never done paper mache-I was being punished that day in 3rd grade when the entire class did it and they made me watch! I was traumatized-Ha Ha! Anyhow-it is a great medium to make my buoys more 3d,owl beak, feet legs and now a mask-I am so happy I found your totally cooool boots!!!!

Hullabuoy said...

By the way I love your so called "blathering replies"!!!
