I've been meaning to do a giveaway for ages. I thought I'd do one after I hit 100 sales in my shop, and that never happened. I wanted to do one for Christmas, for the New Year, for my birthday - and they never happened either (obviously). Once I hit 200 sales I knew it was time to put something together. There's no excuse! So, here it is. A sweet, little giveaway where someone is going to win a handful of goodies from my etsy shop.
I do want to thank everyone who has taken the time to encourage me with my crafts. There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn't have found the courage to even join etsy, if it weren't for this blog and the incredible encouragement I've received from all of you. There aren't even words to express how much it meant to me in the beginning, and continues to mean to me every single day. I know that I wouldn't have been able to find this confidence without each and every person who has taken the time to say, "Yes, you can do this."
It's been nearly two years since I opened my shop on etsy, and I can honestly say that I had no idea I would end up doing so much with it. To see the way it has challenged me to grow creatively, and to see how my style and "brand" has changed and grown through the years...it's amazing. It's definitely helped me truly embrace the things I believe I'm good at, and also challenged me to work harder and continually come up with new ideas. The creative process has been one of the most rewarding things in my life. I can't even tell you the rush I still get when I come up with a new idea, complete a project, list an item, and then someone ends up buying it! I don't think that will ever get old. I'm pretty sure I'll always do a little happy-dance when I sell something.
This is all to say, thank you for all the happy-dances I've had thus far - and I look forward to all the happy-dances I have yet to experience! Hurrah! There are so many new goals I'm setting for myself, and it's incredibly comforting to know that I have so many people behind me, cheering me on. It truly means the world to me.
So, without further ado, here are the items up for grabs:
1. a "love" cloth gift bag.
2. single "love is a cupcake" notecard.
3. alphabet "pretty" notebook.
4. set of two mini-mum hair pins (one green, one gray).
How to enter:
You are able to have a total of two entries per person! You will get one entry by leaving a comment with your name and email address (so I can contact you if you win). You will get a second entry if you mention this giveaway on your blog or twitter - simply leave the link to what you wrote in a separate comment (again, with your name and email address, because I'm not good at keeping track of these types of things and I need all the help I can get).
You have until midnight on Friday, September 4th to enter. (I'm not going to mess with timezones because it makes my head explode, so, just make sure to enter before September 5th, mmmkay?)
