Drumroll, Please.

(Psst. If you didn’t win, keep reading anyway. There’s a deal at the end that’s totally for you!)


Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway for the Modern Diamonds card wallet or an as-yet-to-be made card wallet! I am amazed that so many of you entered, and absolutely thrilled that almost all of you followed the rules. It was incredibly hard to choose just one comment for the Modern Diamonds card wallet. Those of you who thought you should win because you followed the rules–I think you should, too! But there was more than one of you, so that didn’t seem like a sufficient criterion for choosing the winner. Every reason you offered was a great reason to need a card wallet, and I truly wish it was in my budget to give one to each of you. I really do. Unfortunately for you, I’m a broke student, so that’s not happening.

To those of you who volunteered for the guerrilla marketing program (remember, you said you’d casually wave around your new card wallet in front of all your friends, until they just had to know where you got it?) — Thank you! It’s a fabulous idea! Once Anodyne Design makes it big, I’ll have to start that program.

I totally understand those of you who need new wallets to match your new bags, those of you who need something cute in your lives, and those of you who value something handmade as a little more special than something you buy at the mall. All of your wonderful, generous compliments made me smile all week long. As for the one who called fire (I’m talking about you, #88) you have no idea how funny that was — after the fiasco where I spilled wine all over my monitor (don’t ask), my husband was convinced it would burst into flames at any minute. It hasn’t yet.

So after much soul searching and personal turmoil, I have made my choice. It was close, but the winning comment, from SomeoneBeingMe, is:

I love that wallet. Pink and brown are so cute. I should win because I am so not the crafty type and could never make anything that cute myself. I come from a line of crafty women who can make beautiful creations with 3 straws, glitter, and a glue gun and Iā€™m the one who would end up with a straw glue gunned to my hair.

Girl, this wallet is way cooler than anything made out of 3 straws, glitter, and a glue gun. Plus, now you’re a winner. (Have I ever mentioned that I’ve always wanted to be a winner? It’s pretty awesome.)

And according to, our lucky randomly selected winner is: Comment #80! Comment 80 comes to us from Kristine, who wrote: “I could use something like this for my diaper bag! My fave color is purple.” Just you wait. Soon, you’ll be rockin’ an awesome purple card wallet!

For those of you who didn’t win, let’s still be friends, okay? This giveaway was so much fun, I suspect I’ll be doing it again soon! And really, with all those great reasons for needing a card wallet, maybe you should treat yourself to one? In fact, for everyone who entered this giveaway, if you buy a card wallet from my Etsy shop (and don’t worry, I’ll be restocking this weekend!) during the month of February, I’ll give you free shipping on your order. Just leave a note when you place your order saying you participated in the giveaway and I’ll refund the shipping cost through PayPal.

Thanks for playing, everyone!

  2. Awww. Thank you, thank you. I will wave my incredibly cool new wallet in front of all my crafty family and friends taunting them about how it didn’t even require a glue gun. I promise I won’t forget the little people on my way up. I’ll be emailing you my address. Now I’m off to practice my Miss America wave.
