my first giveaway!

Ok, so going along with Pip's week of hello and happy I am going to giveaway my last 3 FAUX MO's.

I've been making FAUX MO's for Movember with all the money from selling them going to the Movember group who are all about raising money for men's health issues including supporting research into prostate cancer and depression.

I haven't made many and haven't really made a huge effort in my marketing campaign to sell too many as I've been too busy to sit down and make them! I only had the idea midway through Movember so am a little under prepared! But I have raised $114 for the cause which I think is OK...Maybe next year I will refine the design, my marketing and get making earlier so I can raise tons of money!

Anyway, for your chance to win one just leave a comment! I will draw some winners next Thursday. For each one given away I will donate money to my team, The Hirsute Gentlemen.

Here's a pic of my friend Karin sporting one...

Anybody for a Faux Mo?

Yes, I am making faux mos for movember.

This is my way of raising funds and getting my free ticket to the movember ball...

Faux mos are felt badges I'm lovingly making by hand and am selling for $8 each. This means they are all unique. They also come on their own handmade card.

I'm not taking any money for materials or time, all of it goes to the movember group who are supporting research into prostate cancer and depression. A worthy cause I believe!

If you'd like to receive one, go here:, donate $8 (plus postage and a donation would be really nice :) ...) and then send me an email or PM me with your address, what colour you'd prefer, brown or black and what style you'd like, either a connoisseur style or the thinner parisian style. Or if yr feeling adventurous, just request a random one! Then I will get busy and send one through to you!

Here's a pic of my gorgeous friend Karin sporting a connoisseur in black... (thanks for the link back and the kick up the bum to write a post too!)

and a really bad product photo...

So quick sticks! Support the cause and get yours now!
