Gimme a Giveaway: Curiously Wrought

This giveaway is closed for entries.  See who won here.

Can you believe it’s March already?  I can’t, it feels like we were just ringing in the new year.  To ring in March, we’ve got an awesome giveaway from the Etsy shop Curiously Wrought.

This little shop is stocked with state art, and you know I have a weakness for maps.  But these aren’t your regular maps.  Check out these wood, nail, and thread statement art pieces.

See, I told you these weren’t your average maps.  And here’s how you can get your hands on one.

  1. I subscribe in Google Reader.
    My least fav word is ‘substanitive’. I’m not even sure I’ve spelled it right, but I can barely ever get it out of mouth correctly. I’m a paralegal – that’s why it even enters my vocab ever!

  2. HI, I already follow you using Google Reader 🙂

    Since my mother language is Portuguese my fav word in English is Issues ( I love the way it sounds ) and the one I hate is whirlwind, so hard to say..

  3. I have favorite phrases more so than favorite words. “vicious cycle” is one of them 🙂 I love these map art pieces!!!

  4. I follow through Google Reader.

    I hate the word “supplement.” I actually used to have to write it ALL THE TIME at my old job, and I look at it and see “supple-ment” not “sup-le-ment” – I want to spell it suppliment. Also, bankruptcy. Another word I have to use a lot and have a hard time spelling. There can’t be that many consonants in a row!

  5. I subscribe via Google Reader. My least favorite word is “moist”. It just makes me wrinkle my nose up when I hear it, I don’t know why!

  6. I would love a map of Colorado!!!! I had to write the word “little” over and over recently and after four times it started to look really funny and I began to doubt if I was spelling it right.

  7. I added Curiously Wrought to my Etsy favs. Since I’m from Canada, my fav province isn’t listed but I do like the colours of the Maryland piece.

  8. These are so cute! Even though our state is the worst for cute art, I live in a giant rectangle called Colorado, I want one! As far as words, hmmm…. I’ve never put much thought into it. I have heard of people not liking the word moist before though. Oh, I also have a weird habit of wanting to double the vowels in two letter words. Other than wanting to spell me with an extra e I can’t think of them right now, but I’m always having to fix that. Oh dear, I’m rambling now.

  9. I suscribed ages ago! 🙂

    And this seller is already one of my favorites, which why I’m super pumped they’re featured here!

    Ok, now as for least favorite word: literally. I don’t like it because it’s abused and used incorrectly often. Prime example, a friend once said to me “Shit hit the fan, literally”. My goodness, I hope not. How would you clean the walls? Heck, how did it get up there in the first place?!

  10. I subscribe through Google Reader and I love every second of it! I have lots of favorite words…one of my most favorite (and least used) is defenestrate: to throw (a person or thing) out a window.

  11. I added Curiously Wrought as an Etsy favorite – they have very fun stuff! It would be a great gift for a friend of mine that moved of state recently!

  12. I favorited them on Etsy! I would say my favorite state on there right now is Massachusetts (I love Boston!) But of course I’d love a Montana one, or a Missouri 🙂

  13. and i added them to my etsy favs. even if i dont win, i might have to seriously think about getting myself one of these pieces anyway!

  14. LOVE these!

    I subscribe through Google Reader. My fave word is “milk”. I don’t know why? There are a ton of words I dislike, most of them are too gross to mention. 😉

  15. Cool! I added the shop to my favorites and since I didn’t see Virginia art I like the Texas since it’s red and blue.

  16. What a very cool map! I dig maps too.

    My favorite word is slumber. It just rolls off your tongue and conjures up images of a peaceful dream state.

    My least favorite word is the “F” word and I don’t mean f*ck. I mean the one that rhymes with art. Makes my teeth curl.

  17. I added Curiously Wrought to my Etsy favs. Even though I have never lived in Maryland, I love the way that one looks.

  18. Love this! Favorite word: Super, because when my five year old uses that word he says “Shuper”.

    I already subscribe to the blog (and love it by the way!)

  19. I added Curiously Wrought to my favorites on Etsy – I can say why people are picking Maryland! It turns out beautifully! Interested in seeing how Wisconsin looks… 🙂

  20. I am a SB fan of yours. One of my favorite words is “a lot, a lot.”
    (there is a bit of a story there)

  21. Hey – this is a fun place. I’ve signed up – and I also voted for you on the homies.
    One of my least favorite words is groat, and a phrase I enjoy saying is saying is “slack-jawed”.

    Love this art! Its just too cool.

  22. Curiously Wrought is a etsy favorite of mine. Another favorite word of mine is “Mama” because I have an adorable little boy that calls me that.

  23. Oh, I just love these!

    And, my least favorite word is ‘moist’. Everyone in my life knows I hate it, but still torture me by trying to fit it into casual conversation as often as possible. As much as I hate it, it is funny.

  24. I have forever cringed at the word “crust.” I remember that feeling back in elementary school while learning about the layers of the earth.

  25. I’m a subscriber through Google Reader! I am drawing a total blank when it comes to words. I know there are words I despise, but I can’t think of them right now!Great giveaway 🙂

  26. I’m subscribed!! I would LOVE the California map. I actually bought matching California necklaces 8 years ago when my sister was in the Peace Corps to remind her of home 🙂

    Thanks for hosting!!

  27. I am a subscriber. Found you from Young House Love. My least favorite word is moist. Makes my skin crawl.

  28. I subscribe via Google Reader!

    My favorite word isn’t even an English word – it’s pamplemousse, French for cantaloupe! And, like the majority of girls I know, I hate the words “moist” and “panties.” (and I’m sorry for the image I may have conjured in anyone’s brain….)
