In honor of World Autism Day, and to raise awareness of this very serious disorder, we are GIVING AWAY 3 beautiful Mason's Puzzle Acrylic Albums to 3 lucky winners!!! My Acrylic Album has generously donated these awesome puzzle albums to Swirlydoos to show their support in raising awareness for Autism. Krissy Mosbarger designed this special puzzle for My Acrylic Album in honor of her son, Mason who was diagnosed with Autism at the tender age of 18 months. Proceeds from each and every Mason's Album sold goes directly to Autism Speaks (in Mason's name) to help further their research in finding both a cause and a cure. If you would like to learn more about the Mason's Puzzle, you can either visit My Acrylic Album, or visit the Mason's puzzle page in our store. These puzzles are available with 6" or 8" puzzle pieces that are fully interlocking. They retail for $15.00 and $20.00 respectively. 

Please help us spread the word about Autism, and about the Mason's puzzles by directing your friends to this SUPER DUPER EASY CONTEST!

What do you have to do to win a Mason's Puzzle Acrylic Album?

 EEEEEEEEASY PEEEESY, All you need to do is leave us a comment telling us how you, or someone you know has been affected by Autism. Don't know anyone who's been affected by Autism?

Rarely have I been moved to tears by a mere act of kindness. When I announced this contest I was sure we would receive some very nice cards from some of our very talented members. Never, EVER in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the sheer outpouring of love and time and commitment that rolled in through my mailbox these past couple of weeks. 

We have received cards from all over the world! We have recieved cards more beautiful than anything Halmark could ever dream up. We received cards created by children, for children. We recieved NUMEROUS cards that have been published in scrapbooking magazines. We received - - - Hope, in the form of 140 custom created, hand-crafted beautiful cards. With tears in my eyes, and on behalf of every mom of a child with Autism, THANK-YOU. To all who participated, thank you. Each wonderful woman who sent in cards will receive 10% off their next store purchase! Please contact me at to get your coupon code. These cards will now be shipped off and presented for Auction, with all money raised going directly to Autism Speaks!

Now, for our winner! In a random drawing professionally conducted by my littles, we have chosen the winner of this contest:

Mason tried and tried, and really wanted to choose the winner! Unfortunately, he was more interested in opening and closing the box than pulling out a name! lol

Enter Ashli, mommy's little helper who proudly proclaimed that SHE wanted to pick the winner out of all of the ladies who are helping Masie (she calls him Masie)

And there you have it friends! The winner of the $25.00 gift certificate to the Swirlydoos store is Cassie Box!  Congratulations CASSIE! Contact me at to claim your prize~

Thank you again, too all of the beautiful women, and children who gave of your time and talents to help raise money for Autism. With help from folks like you, we WILL find a cause and we WILL find a cure!

We received NUMEROUS submissions for our Guest Designer call here at Swirlydoos, and were truly humbled by the talent of all of the ladies who applied! This was an absolutely excruciating decision process because we did not receive ONE application that was not up to Swirlydoos standards! Having said that, we could only choose a few ladies. Please help me welcome and congratulate our new guest designers!
