having been so fortunate as to have worked with this kit myself, i can tell you definitively: YOU WANT IT! seriously. there's not a bit of it that isn't beeeeeeautiful, cool, and completely use-able! here are links to a few projects i made last autumn: an embroidered thank you card, a layery baby book, and a fabulous cupcake giftcard holder! which, frankly, hardly scratches the surface, because the pixie kits are generously over-stuffed! we pixies did a WHOLE MONTH of projects to inspire it's use, actually! :)

but if you don't win the main prize, there's also a bit of a runner up selection: yep, it's a MINI pixie crown--a scaled-down version of THIS PROJECT--which i've made specially for one lucky pixie blog reader:

this mini-crown stands just about 6" tall at its flowery pediment...

...and not only would it look pretty cool as a decoration on your desk, or the shelf beside your vanity table... will also serve the useful purpose of reminding everyone who sees it just WHO IS THE QUEEN of your domain!!! :) :) :)

so now i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "hey lauren! how do i become eligible to win these lovely prizes?!" well it's pretty easy, actually; all you have to do to enter our random drawing entry is ......
