    I just entered the monthly handmade craft #giveaway @hhandmadeblog at http://bit.ly/nHVoc0 You should too!

Without any further adieu, let’s get right into the giveaway and our super excellent sponsors for this month.

Travel Hula Hoop Handcrafted by Hooping By Sarah

One of Heart Handmade Blog’s own featured crafters, Sarah Maccarelli Jordan is a hoop dance performer and instructor with a passion for the arts. Sarah’s interest in creative expression started early and was channeled into ballet and gymnastics training. Eventually, belly dance became Sarah’s preferred dance form and when Sarah moved to Pennsylvania in 2009, she started hooping and now enjoys combining these beautiful art forms.

Sarah is Hoopnotica certified and teaches hoop dance, hoop fitness & hoop play classes for ages 5 to adult in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. She runs interactive hoop workshops and performs at various events and parties. She recently made a collapsible hula hoop (she simply HAD to have a hula hoop with her on vacation) and wants to share one with our readers!

The travel hoop is your perfect travel companion, it folds into a figure 8, then folds in half for easy packing. This month’s giveaway winner will win their very own travel hoop.

 

Steampunk Emporium Book

Interested in learning more about creating steampunk jewelry and other unique creations? Steampunk Emporium is a beautifully crafted new book by Emily Ladybird, exploring a wide range of techniques from basic jewelry making to mixed media to polymer clay handling. The book is friendly to beginners and advanced practitioners alike, including detailed photos and well-written stories that will work you through the technique.

Included in the book are 20 unique and whimsical designs for beautiful jewelry, devices and oddments, each more charming and fantastical than the next. This month’s winner will win a copy of Steampunk Emporium to add to their collection.

 

Uprinting Rolled Canvas Print

Uprinting puts you in complete control of your art, helping you create canvas prints on various canvas sizes. Uprinting makes creating your next piece of wall art a breeze – either create your artwork online through their online design tool, or upload a piece of art you’ve already created. Your rolled canvas print is ready and to you in about a day.

Are you planning to hang family portraits and artworks to the walls of your home or office? Stay away from old-fashioned and fragile photo frames and have your photos printed on stretched canvas instead! Not only does the texture of poly-cotton blend of stretched canvases make your prints more appealing, but their satin coating also prevents the images from fading through time.

The photo frames available in stores have limited sizes. However, with stretched canvas sizes, you have more sizes to choose from. The size of your stretched canvas must be proportion to the size of the area that you’re displaying it on. Naturally, the bigger the room, the larger your canvas should be.

This month’s winner will receive a 16″ x 20″ rolled canvas print from Uprinting (more details below).

Just to recap, here’s a list of the goodies this month’s winner will receive:

  • 1 Handmade Travel Hula Hoop Made by Sarah
  • 1 Copy of Steampunk Emporium
  • 1 Piece 16” x 20” Rolled Canvas Print from Uprinting

Print Comes with 2-Inch Border or No border, 1 Business Day Turnaround with Free shipping (Limited to *US residents 18 years old and above only – sorry!)
Disclaimer: This canvas printing giveaway is sponsored by UPrinting, no monetary compensation was given for hosting. Check out UPrinting.com for more details about canvas sizes.
