A Super Summer Giveaway!

For many of my friends and family today marks the first official day of summer vacation! My friends back home are busy planning their vacations, spending lazy days cuddling with babies, and engaging in all things that make summertime so wonderful. 

To help celebrate the start of summer, MainlyMaren is hosting a giveaway!

While I miss my friends from back home terribly, I have met some great people while living in Europe. Here in Munich I have been lucky enough to meet Kate. She has been quite influential in helping me to meet people, has shown me local specialties (food, ice cream, art, etc), and got me involved in the crafting community. We meet nearly every week for coffee and her friendship really helped me adjust to living abroad. 
Kate is the artist behind the Etsy shop Cut and Tear. She specializes in creating unique paper and soft dolls from her personal sketches. Her dolls are perfect for bachelorette/lingerie party decorations, a mom-to-be (check out the maternity girls), and anyone who enjoys a good book with a quirky bookmark.  
Today Cut and Tear is pairing up with Mainly Maren in this colorful summer giveaway! Up for grabs is a set of five extra-long, super adorable, swimmer girl postcards. This postcard set would be perfect to help send your friends warm summer wishes. How cute would this postcard be to receive in the mail?
I'm tempted to keep these postcards for myself. I think these vintage ladies would also be darling matted and framed in white on a wall during the summer months. Or perhaps hanging in a beach house? Or even hanging in a bathroom next to the pool? The options could go on and on!

Here is how you can enter the giveaway:
1. "Like" MainlyMaren on Facebook (button on top)
2. Become a follower of MainlyMaren

A random winner will be drawn and announced on MainlyMaren next Tuesday, June 16th!

If you are in the Munich area, you can also check out Kate's work inside the Hands Gallery, view her shop worldwide on Etsy, or stop over and visit her blog Cut and Tear.

Splash into Summer,
