My new toy

I have recently purchased a new toy for myself. This is something that I've wanted to have for a VERY long time. I am feeling very blessed to be able to have this!

This is my brand new embroidery machine! This will make it possible for me to do things with my Zadyballs that I never would have been able to do without it! I've spent the last week or so figuring it all out and having lots of fun doing it!



One of the first projects that I did with it was for one of the shops that carry Zadyballs. They are having a special Christmas tree and asked each of the vendors to supply ornaments in their "style". So, here's what I did. The pictures aren't great, and I'm still learning the ins and outs of the machine, but I think they turned out pretty well.






Now, I'm converting most of my Zadyball designs over to the embroidery machine so that I can make them faster and better! I'm also offering free personalization on any Zadyball (except for clearance).

I would like to start getting some pictures of personalized Zadyballs so that I can have them to display. So, to get started, I'm going to give a FREE, personalized ZadyMini to a few winners. To enter, please post a comment here stating who you would like to give a ZadyMini too, and I will randomly select winners at 10PM on Saturday. (This would make a fantastic Christmas gift!)

Alayna, those are so cute. My youngest is 3 but my sister is due next month and I would love one to give her for her baby.

Hey, I just looked at the other ones and I think my three year old would even like the lion. I was thinking just baby toys. Too cute!

I love the new designs!!! I would love to give my little girl one she'll be two months old next week! Or I could even give one to my niece who's expecting her first child next week!

I have purchased a larger one and if I am lucky and win I would give it to my new granddaughter born this past Sunday. :) She will get the larger one for Christmas. Thanks for the giveaway.

Well, you don't have to enter me in the drawing (although who wouldn't want a Zadyball?), but I just had to say I love, LOVE, LOVE the snowflakes!! :) Very cool.

Oh these are just adorable! and CONGRATS on your new machine! Isn't it so fun to get new toys ; ) I would love to be able to give one of these to my new little nephew (hes my first!) who's 4 months old now so he'll be 5 months around Christmas time. I think it would be a wonderful gift to give him and I'm really trying to spoil him as much as I can because my sister and brother in law have a really tight budget now, especially because she isn't working and stays home with the baby. I really want to make his first Christmas as special as it can be! Thanks so much for the chance to win! *crossing my fingers*

That's so cool! Zadyballs are SO cute! I would absolutely LOVE to have one for my daughter! We just adopted an 8 month old from Korea and I've been looking for little toys like this for her. She would love something like that!

Caranna said...

Yeah! I'm so glad that you were able to get it! What fun.

We have a fundraiser next weekend for our library. Silent auction with craft / gift show with the silent auction monies and the tables fees going to the library. Our neighbouring city just voted down a library bond so they will close 4 libraries in 6 weeks. Truly sad so this would go into the silent auction and we have alot of kids who go to this library so we suspect some parent would bid on it and we would get it in time for the show in 9 days time.

Thanks.

JM and your machine sounds lovely!!! Hope you have alot of fun with it.

A Thank you to everyone who entered! I will be contacting the winners soon!
And even if you didn't win, I'm still offering free personalization on any Zadyball order until the end of November. Send an email to info@zadyball.com when you order to let me know the personalization details.
Thanks!!
