Hi Michelle -

Love your banks they are yummy! I've got my eye on the little blue bird! The bicycle block I bought from you was a HUGE hit for my son's birthday - it was given a special place on his shelf!

I am $aving for to buy perennials for my empty flower garden - we just bought a new home and it came with a beautiful empty flower bed! Very excited to create with flowers!

Take care ~ Christine


I am saving money to go to school.I am a single mom with a dream for everything fashion and art. I love how creative you are and I hope to one day be half the talented artist you are! I love your stuff its amazing....



I'm saving money, so I can travel to Bali this summer. My friend will be meeting me there and we plan to go BEAD shopping!! Yeah!!! I'm excited.

I am saving up to buy one of your clocks! (Maybe two, lol). Things have been so tight in the budget lately, no extra $ for the whimsical stuff that just makes you smile, and let me tell ya, I could use to smile these days.
I love your work! Keep it up!

I´m saving for next years Artfest!
And added your give-away on my blog & shared it on Facebook, because I think everyone should have an authentic AllenDesign! Oo! I saw your clocks in Las Vegas last night! The lady said they sold lots of them :-)
Have a nice day!

P.S. I did all four things!! <3 Jules

I'm saving money to take a nice relaxing vacation. But will probably spend it on new books for our library.

I have been watching you from a far up here in Canada, if that is not a problem I would ADORE one of these. I really LOVE LOVE your style and this would be lovely to put my savings for my trip to Paris in the fall.

Keep up the great work Michelle:)

I'm a new fan of your work. My sister-in-law gave me one of your jazzy steaming teapot clock for Christmas -- love it! I'm saving money for some home improvements to the kitchen and home office. Those banks are soooo cool!

Sooooooo cute! I am saving up for my next installment to Journalfest! First time going, can't wait. Are you going? Would love to watch you working on your journal in person! Hope to see you there.

I am saving my money for an operation that I must have to be able to see. The skin on my eye lids is sagging so much that it's in my vision field. My mom had the same problem so its genetic as well. I looked at my high school year book and couldn't believe how bad its become, as its been such a gradual change. So this year is it.
I love your art work, but am especially fond of your clocks. The best to you.
