Can I interest you in a GIVEAWAY? {now closed}

Top of the mornin’ to ya! Literally... cause I just realized it’s almost noon!

So, I got to thinking that it’s been awhile since we’ve had a giveaway. And it’s been even longer since we’ve had a giveaway from our own Etsy shop SyWoodInk!

Sy Wood Ink1

Our biggest seller on our shop is by far the state/country cut-outs. We cut each state or country out of 1” pine boards using a scroll saw, stain them, and paint (or stain) a heart where the client specifies!

State and Country Plaques by Sawdust and Embryos

I love it when people order their state/country to have a bright color painted around the edge. It’s just so cheerful and feels so custom.

So today, we’re giving away one United States plaque. BE EXCITED!


The winner will be able to customize it to their own preferences... ie stain color, paint color... even the city marker! You’re not just limited to a heart!

  1. Oh my! I love these so much!!!!!! I think if I don't win, I will just need to order one!

  2. I love these! I would like it with a rust edging and a big heart over our beloved Iowa!!! Can you guys imagine the talent your girls will have with you two as parents??? It is going to be mind-blowing!!

  3. I love these and the individual states!!! My issue is I would have to buy two since I spend so much time between Texas and Louisiana if I did the individuals lol. If I don't win, I'm just going to buck up and buy one.

  4. Oh, these are wonderful!! I would put a lot of hearts on mine tho, and keep adding as the family grows! ;) Awesome giveaway! Going to share it on fb. :)
    Cory, - come check out my shop!

    1. If you win, I'll paint on as many hearts as you want! :)

  5. hmmmmm.... i follow you all the way from Hawaii... where are your Hawaii cut-outs?

    1. Haha! I've been DREADING a Hawaii order. I think the only way it would work would be to have a hunk of wood with the islands cut OUT of the wood. So it would be a 'reverse' state plaque. :)

  6. Ohhhh I LOVE it! You are so talented... those lines are pretty jagged. I've used a scroll saw before and I KNOW I couldn't do that :) Thanks for the awesome give away!

  7. This is so so awesome. I would LOVE to win this!!

  9. I am from Detroit. We could use some love right now!

  10. This is so great! I'm from the Deep South of Alabama - the Heart of Dixie!! I would so love to win this plaque from you. I love all of your great ideas. Wish I had your kind of creative mind. I can RE-create, but not so good at the actual creative process.


We LOVE comments!!! Don't be shy, friends!
