Here are details about the giveaway

Terms for entering the giveaway:
1.  Must be a U.S. resident over the age of 13.
2.  All entries must be in by 12am EST September 27th.  No late entries will be accepted.

To enter:
Leave a comment on this video saying what items you would be interested in winning. For ex. "Just the microphone" or "The wands, the perlers, and the tiles" or "All of them!"  Please only comment once.

Things you need to know:
1. The prizes are:  One Free Space Pro Binaural Microphone with mounting hardware and muffs, 4 Wooden Magic Wands (one wand per wand winner), 6 Tile Coasters (2 Coasters per tile winner), and Perlers (sets established in the video).
2.  If you win, you are responsible for any additional equipment you may need, and any taxes you may have to pay.
3.  The video props (Perlers, Wands, and Tile Coasters) will be shipped without a return address.  Video Props may also arrive damaged (as they were made by me)---but I will do my very best to package them so they won't.
4.   I am going to film the drawings which will be done via a randomizing program to maintain the giveaway's integrity and transparency.  The first drawing will be for the microphone, and then the props will follow.  If your name is drawn, I will go to your comment to see if you wanted the item you have won. If so, It will be yours.  If not, your name will go back into the pool, and I will draw again.
5.  Winners will be announced within 3 days after Giveaway closes on the 27th.
6.  Winners have 7 days to contact me and claim their prize---if prize isn't claimed within 7 days of winners announcement, a new winner will be drawn.

Here is the website and instruction manual for the microphone.  If you have any questions about it, please read up on it, and make sure that it would be something you would be interested in winning.

This is my first time doing something like this, and I wanted to be as thorough and fair as possible while giving people an opportunity to win.  This is also one of the VERY few times I am giving anything I've made out to other people.  I don't even give away my drawings of people, and as you can see, I hoard a mean stock of perlers.  :P  I was both super excited and nervous about doing this, because I wanted to be able to give gifts without compromising my sense of safety.  I needed viewers and content creators to know that I am grateful for all of them, and I felt like just saying "thanks" didn't carry enough weight for what I was feeling.

My 28th year was full of new and unexpected events.  I had never had surgery, and I had it twice that year.  I started a youtube channel on a whim.  I found something that made me happier than any other hobby.  I made a lot of new friends and forged new relationships with people I now hold very dear.  My 28th year was beautiful and scary, and I am grateful for every day I got to spend it doing something I love.  Thank you all for joining me on my journey, and letting me join you in my own limited way on yours.  <3


  1. Happy birthday heather! Don't worry about mailing the items only in USA, your concerns are ok and justified. You already deliver your art around the globe 24/7 and for that i am truly greatful. you are a heartwarming person and your content has been a real beacon of light for the past six months since i discovered you. I stumbled on your videos One night when i couldn't sleep and even though i was too excited to sleep, i enjoyed the sound assortments :)

    i don't want to get my name on the lottery even By accident since i'm not eligible and that is why i thank you here. Also, it feels more personal somehow, hehe.

    I wish the autumn there is as beautiful as it is here in Finland! All the best -Juha
