Enchanted Doll Birthday contest 2013

Hey there, Enchanted Doll lovers! The Annual Enchanted Doll birthday contest is under way, with over a hundred entries received so far! The entry criteria is simple this year: Send me a travel post card to enter an Enchanted Doll. The deadline is Feb 28th.

The contest has been a blast. Every morning I wake up and look forward to receiving a new batch of cards, wondering which new places I’ll get to see today. My mail man is starting to get a bit weird-ed out and amused. Although hand-made was not a requirement, I am surprised just how many cards I’ve been getting, were hand crafted. Thank you for making that extra effort.

I look forward to more cards tomorrow! Keep ’em coming!

  15. Ellie says:

    This is awesome :) I thought they weren’t allowed to be in envelopes? Maybe I’m just remembering wrong :P

  16. Ellie says:

    “One Card per person. No envelopes-just the postcard. Cards arriving in envelopes will be disqualified.” I thought so :/

  17. Ellie…..If you look at the Birthday contest post on #75 Marina made the modification mailing rules.

  18. Hazel says:

    The rule modification is also mentioned in the entry following the Birthday Contest one:

  19. Irina says:

    Hello, Marina!

    I just joined Your wonderful contest, but I am afraid that my postcard will not be able to get to You in a right time. I have sent it today, but I was tolled in the post office that it can take up to a month time for postcard to come from Estonia to Canada. =(

    If the card was sent before deadline but arrived later than 28/02 will it still have a chance?

  20. Sylvia Leticia says:

    Ciao Marina… I am so Excited about the Birthday Contest. I already sent my Postcard. The Post Office told me It will arrive before the 28th. But not sure It will get to your House on time. Will You check the day It arrives to your Country? Hope so!! Notice I put the stamp upside down. This means Kisses are sent with the Card :-} Enjoy a Magical Day… Sylvia Leticia

  21. I sent my postcard out over a week ago, and hope that it has (will soon?) arrive safely.

    And I’m still getting new ideas for postcards.

  22. Alberto says:

    Ough! I sent my postcard without envelope from Spain! I hope it arrive safe and sound!! I sent it before the changes in the rules I think… Well, I´m crossing my fingers!

  23. Natalia says:

    ohh, i hope mine is there .my postcard flew halfway around the world, and she could get lost.

  24. Annina says:

  25. Annina says:

  27. Joy says:

    I mailed mine today – allowing 8 days for travel from Charleston SC to Canada – sadly the Post Office said 6-10 Days!!! My 8 days is right in the middle of their ‘estimate’ —- fingers crossed they are faster than they estimated!!!!

Please write me your email,I will sent you tracking-number and photoes of my card without any photoshop. I afraid,it won’t come on time,thus that is not my fault. Please,give a little chance to take part, and///sorry for my English. Thus there is some hope that card will come on time

    Hello, Marina. I sent his congratulation on January 19. Mail ID says that it was delivered in Canada, but there is a problem with the award. I hope that You get my card in time.
    With respect of Siberia.

  34. Astera says:

    Ouch, I am afraid my card is stuck at the post office in Vancouver. I forgot to waiver the signature request on the express mail form and they have not found you guys at home yesterday…sorry!

  35. Not to worry Astera if you did not ask for a signature they will mail it to them. I sent mine express with no signature.

    I am so excited to see all the entries, I love this part….its the countdown 3 mores days to go!
