DZFANTASY'S JULY GIVEAWAY!!

DZFANTASY'S JULY GIVEAWAY
I am happy to offer this enchanting, one-of-a-kind, fiber sculpted mermaid as JULY'S GIVEAWAY! She could be yours!! The contest will run from July 1st - July 31st. Winner will be randomly picked from all those who have left a comment.

HEY, EVERYBODY, THANKS FOR ALL YOUR LOVELY COMMENTS. HOWEVER.....a lot of you are STILL NOT LEAVING YOUR NAMES, AND A MEANS OF CONTACTING YOU!

I want everyone to have a fair chance of being the lucky winner of this month's MERMAID.....SO PLEASE, PLEASE, ..... follow the steps below!!
To enter the drawing, please be sure to complete each STEP below to ensure your entry into the drawing. Any entries that DO NOT follow the STEPS below, can not be entered, as I would have no means of contacting the winner.
Step 1: Leave comment
Step 2: Leave your FIRST name in comment
Step 3: Leave your EMAIL in comment OR email it to me at:

Since ALL entries will be taken from the names left in the comments, it is VERY important to follow the above STEPS. I need to have a means of contacting the lucky winner! Emails are not being asked for, other than to have a source for contacting the winner.

This is the smallest of my "wall" style mermaids. She measures 6.5" tall, and her tail fin span is 5". Her upper body and face are 100% silk fabric. I individually hand-drew, needle-sculpted and hand-painted her face. Her eyes and lips have a coat of crystal clear lacquer which gives her a very "life-like" look and shine.

Her tail fabric is a quality batik fabric in shades of aqua. She has a lovely, long flowing hairdo, which I designed out of two different Italian yarns. One is a soft, wispy "eyelash" style yarn, and the other is a sparkling/glistening yarn, which makes her look as if she just come out of the sea!
Her accents are real sea shells in her hair, necklace and waist accent, along with Swarovski crystals, and tiny glass seed beads. She has a loop on the back of her neck for either hanging on the wall, or to dance from a bit of clear fishing line or ribbon. She may also be displayed standing on a shelf, if she leans against something or is tacked to the wall. She is NOT freestanding. You may also move her arms up or down a bit, as well as her tail fins.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

I am a fairy collector. I have fairies made of various mediums but I don't have any cloth fairies. This little stunner would be a welcome addition to my collection.

DZ, I think this mermaid wants to travel! Send her to Northrn Ireland where she can swim in Carlingford Lough, right by where I live. It's a great place for fairies, elves and of course, mermaids!

You do beautiful work. I checked out your Etsy shop, it looks like you have lots of fun with your fairy dolls. How did you get started? I've always wanted to make a fancy doll, but they seem so hard that I've never finished any except a couple of primitive rag dolls. Thanks for sharing, Cindy

I am in total awe of your beautiful mermaid. She would fit in so perfectly in my home and if I win her will send you a pic of her enjoying her new palce in the world. I can't believe you are just giving her away. Doing needle felting myself I know just how much time goes into anything involving fiber arts. She's just stunning.
