How it works:
Every Monday, Nature Manipulated will host a giveaway from a fabulous Etsy shop. For a chance to win the prize you must leave a comment on NM's blog (to this post) with the following items:

1) A link to your favorite item in the featured seller's shop
2) Your email or Etsy shop URL (so I can contact you if you are the winner)

If you do not include BOTH items in the comments your entry will not be included.

One entry per person.

Crooked Little Studio's artist is a full-time art teacher with over 20 years experience in graphic design. Her shop is a place to buy whimsical, vibrant art, art prints and wearable art. Crooked Little Studio derived her shop name from her actual studio. It is, in a word, crooked. None of the corners are square, the floors are uneven, the walls are lumpy; hence the name crookedlittlestudio.

Crooked Little Studio is currently working on illustrations for a book of poetry by Roberta Arwood.

To learn more about Crooked Little Studio, please read the interview I posted with Crooked Little Studio back in April '08.

While you are visiting Crooked Little Studio's shop, take advantage of her special offer valid through February 28, 2009 - Free ACEO with each item purchased. Please mention NM's blog in the message to seller and indicate ACEO of your choice.

Post a link to your favorite item from Crooked Little Studio's shop, along with your email address (or Etsy URL or username) for a chance to win either a Set of 5 Dragonfly Notecards or an 8x10 "New Life" Art Print.


Nature Manipulated is not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items. The prize will be shipped directly from the featured seller and Nature Manipulated is not responsible if the seller does not produce the item or do so in a timely fashion. Once the winner is selected, Nature Manipulated will notify the winner and provide the winner's shipping information to the featured seller. From that point on, all questions or concerns regarding the prize should be addressed to the featured seller. By entering the requested information in the comments, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this giveaway.

Good luck and hope to see you again next Monday for another great giveaway, and throughout the week for other great features and posts.
