I recently contacted Melanie from the Etsy shop SweetMellyJane about her adorable finger puppets, and she kindly agreed to sponsor a giveaway! But before we get started, here's what Melanie has to say about herself and her shop:
Hi! I'm Melanie. My husband calls me "Melly Jane," which is where I got the name for my shop. I love making a variety of crafts, and my shop is evidence of that! There are lots of different items to choose from. I love all kinds of sewing- on a machine, crochet, embroidery. . . ANYTHING! I am a stay-at-home mom, and my four beautiful children make my life wonderful. Besides crafting and being a mom, I can be found at the piano, the library, the ice cream parlor or Target. Thanks for letting me share a little about myself!
Melanie sells all sorts of wonderful things in her shop, including Mary Jane-style baby booties, burp cloths, and various household items. But my absolute favorites are her darling little finger puppets!
See what I mean? And these pictures don't even begin to cover all the different animals she offers. There are dozens of adorable little creatures to choose from!
Lucky for you, Melanie is offering one US or Canadian winner his or her choice of FIVE finger puppets! The winner can even mix-and-match between sets. I am one jealous blogger!
