Giveaway: Coffee Cuffs

Christmas Coffee, EuroChic, Raspberry Ice

We at SoulPerSuit like to give away a little something every once in a while to kick off a new on-line Bible Study group. I missed our group kick-off for Premium Roast with Ruth, and now we're halfway through an interesting look at Ruth, Boaz and Naomi, but I'm here and ready to gift you faithful blog readers and SoulPerSuiters.

Above, you will see one of the projects that has kept my fingers busy and out of trouble all summer long. Welcome to my creative outlet... coffee cuffs.

Of course, you are automatically thinking to yourself, "Hey, those coffee cuffs remind me of the Sandra Glahn Bible Study series that SoulPerSuit uses in their on-line groups- the Coffee Cup Series." Coffee cuff. Coffee cup. You're automatically thinking it. Like automatic drip coffee.

This is your opportunity to win yourself (or someone you love- Christmas is coming up ya know) one of said coffee cuffs. If you don't like coffee, think of these as herbal tea cozies, or hot chocolate snugglies. Any cup of piping hot steaminess would taste soooo much more chic and fun with one of these. And, they're also a perfect compliment to Sandi's great books.

We'll have THREE winners on this one. And (bonus) each of the winners will get to choose from the following cuff styles:
-Christmas Coffee: I made this from some 1970's era Christmas fabric my mom gave me. Santas, holly, wreaths, bells... Paired with gold thread and accenting green fabric.
-Euro-chic: Black and white. High contrast. Citified and sleek. Sometimes there's a touch of pink, sometimes it's just ebony and ivory. Each cuff in this series has some kind of cool action up around the top- fancy yarn, beading, some kind of little touch that just screams "STYLE."
-Raspberry Ice: I took the scraps of raspberry colored snowflake fabric (which I fell in love with and used to make my daughter's Christmas stocking 7 years ago) and worked all the other fabrics around the raspberry color. Light blue flannel from a baby blanket, blue gingham my grandmother gave me before she passed away, kitchen curtains from the 40's. These cuffs are cozy and homey. I love 'em.

All you have to do to win one is this: leave a comment describing your perfect cold weather drink. What nectar of the gods will you be wrapping this cuff around, should you win?

My own Ruth, Naomi and Orpah will draw three names and we'll post the winners here on 10/22. That's one week. Tell your friends. Or... don't tell 'em. More coffee cuffs for you. ;)

Mechanic Man

This just in... for the men out there, and for the women that have men in their lives, I also have these Mechanic Man coffee cuffs to choose from. (Don't let all the girl-yness above to scare you off.)
These cuffs are made with black denim and a complimenting red, gray and black swoosh fabric. Looks like someone squealed their tires all over the thing. And it reverses to a completely jet black cuff for no nosense. No beads on these tough guys, just a cool ragged edge all the way around. Because, of course, that's what happens when race cars squeal their tires all over something. If you have- or are related to- testosterone, enter this giveaway.

*For the record, I'm a Mocha lover.

That's an easy one for me. Starbucks Peppermint Mocha!! I LOVE it when they start making those. Just makes me feel like Christmas.

Kelley said...

Yeah, I totally go for the holiday Starbucks...Eggnog Latte. Yum! Can that count as my entry and my man's? He's an eggnog fanatic, too, but he doesn't blog. I know he'd love one of your uber-cool manly cozies. (that doesn't sound right...)

Chris said...

I'm a Mocha gal, too. And I am fixated on Starbucks. But why? So I can go in, order wrong - words in wrong order (it's decaf venti, not venti decaf, get it right already!) or wrong words altogether (It's tttall, not sssmmmall), and pay four bucks for something that will be gone in 15 minutes. By the way, I passed up the kids' organic yogurt the other day at the store because they had the NERVE to raise the price to $3.29 for a six-pack...

So, for me, SoulPerBlog people, I am going to cozy up with my cozy (should I win) around a hot, yummy festive drink that is... probably chocolaty, maybe minty, but most definately anything but Starbucks!

Testimonial - My friend, Sue, and I are huge fans of Erin's coffee cuffs. Sue buys a lot of blended coffees and says, since the cuff is fabric, it's great for collecting the condensation from the cup. She loves them! And they're green (earth friendly)!

Beautiful. And it's funny, but my young daughter just made such a thing for her grandfather for Christmas, a cup cuff of sorts. And I thought, hmmm... but now I see it's an "in" thing! (I don't think she knew that though. Great artists think alike?)

A Cinnamon Latte is my yummy indulgence this fall. A fun coffee cuff would even make it a little more indulgent! Sign me up please!

Heather said...

let me preface my drink description with a plea: I need one, as in sugary cereal on the bottom shelf need one.
drink description: either pumpkin spice coffee (you know me and that pumpkin spice love, girl) or hot chocolate: dark chocolate cocoa, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla--put in the glass, froth, and add marshmellows, preferably the big fat ones that you can eat with a spoon after the drink is done.
one of those two.
did I mention that I need one?
i want to learn how to make these. you inspire me.

extra hot Tall White Mocha from 'bucks.

Jenny said...

Okay, if I'm ordering, it's a carmel macciato (who cares if it's spelled right as long as I can drink it). But if I'm making, then I think a nice spiced cider would do well--with the manderin oranges and cinnamon sticks. Yum.
And, okay, I'll grant you Heather probably does need one but she's been telling everyone to check this out so I think she's messing with her chances so, maybe you could just send her one anyway, not part of the contest. Especially since she's working so hard on your PR.:-)
Great site!
Abundant blessings!

I heard about your very cool cup huggers on Sandi's blog. I LOVE coffee any season, but I have to say, I have a penchant for the pumpkin spice latte when there's a nip in the air. Please enter me!
