Canning fancy giveaway: Riverdog Prints

This spring, as I was packing my suitcase full of jams, pickles and preserves, heading out to the West coast for book tour events, Cyn sent me a tweet @reply to the photo of 15 jars stacked tall in my suitcase. She mentioned that my jars looked a bit naked and she had just the thing for me. A couple weeks later, when I returned home, I found a little envelope of wonderful in my mailbox. Cyn owns Riverdog Prints, an eco-friendly, sustainable paper/packaging & pet-partnered print and card shop.

I fell in love her tags (which can be sticky or not, depending on your preferred jar labeling tactic); I used up my little round inserts nearly right away. I’ve coveted and squirreled away my little rectangular gift tags.

When I met her IRL in Northampton MA (she drove in from CT!), Cyn was kind enough to offer two of my blog readers sampling of her canning labels and tags. Even non-canners can enjoy these, since she has cute tags that are blank and will hang from any kind of gift pack you create.

This will be a shorter timeline giveaway, so there’s time enough to get these to you hopefully before the holiday. Entries close December 15, 2011 at midnight CST.

To enter: post a comment below sharing with us any homemade holiday gift idea you plan to try this year (or next)!

To sweeten the deal, I’ll send both winners each a little jar of my tangerine marmalade to either gift or gobble up yourself. Winners will be selected by good ol’, entrants accepted from US & Canada since Cyn is shipping these out of her own pocket. Thanks for understanding my awesome further-abroad folks.

p.s. if you don’t put your email address in the little box on the comment form (only I’ll see it, and no one else), then you won’t win.
