I've Made You a Mixed Tape (Giveaway Announcement)

It's been one of those days today where I've sort of lost my compass. So I've made this mixed tape called summer's end for you to make up for lack of posts. Hopefully more posts will come mid day. (Go ahead, start playing it while you read)! It's a compilation of music I used to listen to when I really did make "mixed tapes" along with a few straglers. All music intended to craft to. Here's a list of the tracks:

1. Blood Red Sentimental Blues, Cotton Jones | 2. Coast of Carolina, Telekinesis
3. Stop Breathin, Pavement | 4.The Lakes Of Canada, Sufjan Stevens
5. Truly Great Thing, Sebadoh | 6. Shelter Two,The Evens
7. Deeper, Eric's Trip | 8. Not Funny, Lois

Let's just say, this mixed tape is a precursor to our upcoming new market launching this Monday, called "Mixed Tape" at Poppytalk Handmade. And so this is a sneak announcement to what I have planned for the next month. Along with all the wonderful talent we'll be showcasing, I've got some fun planned. It's going to include you (our readers) where I'll be asking you to make a mixed tape (our criteria - any genre, just good music to craft to) and then posting it to our facebook page and from there, each week we'll be choosing the best mixed tape. The maker of that mixed tape will receive a $25 gift certificate at Poppytalk Handmade. And everyone will gain lots of new music to craft, work, play to!

1. Make a tape here.
2. Any genre of music. (Think good music to craft to)
3. One mixed tape per person.
4. One winner per week during the Mixed Tape Market which runs (Aug 30 - Sep 24/10).
5. Each winner will be picked on the Thursday of each week.
6. Each winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to purchase something at Poppytalk Handmade
7. Each gift certificate will need to be spent during the "Mixed Tape" market only.
8. Make sure you are having fun while participating!

IMPORTANT: To be eligible:
Update: Please leave a link to your mixed tape at our Facebook Page here. Thanks!

I love this idea. It's a great way to find new music! It's also hard to slim down my favorites into an eight song mix, but that's the fun of it! :)

Here's mine (I also posted it on the facebook page!)
