As Promised, A Giveaway!

I've had an Etsy store for quite some time, but I haven't had anything in it.  Now, I'm pleased to say, I finally do!  My husband and I just purchased a new silk screen printing press, and we've put some of our creations in my Etsy store.  In honor or the grand re-opening of "The Cabbage Rose", I'm having a giveaway.

Here's how it works:  the winner of the giveaway will win any one item of their choice from my store.  It is for followers only, so if you're not already a follower, you must become one (and no, you don't have to live in the United States).  To enter, simply leave a comment telling me that you would like to be entered in the giveaway.  You don't need to tell me which item you would like, yet.  The winner will be randomly chosen from all entries received.

If you give a shout out to my giveaway, along with a link, or post my Etsy store button (see it up there in the left hand corner?) on your blog, you'll earn a second entry.  If you do both, I'll give you two more entries.  Be sure to let me know you've done so!  And just to make it a little bit more fun, if I reach 100 followers between now and the end of the giveaway, I'll chose two winners.

The giveaway is open from now until noon Eastern Time on March 20th.  What better way to celebrate the first day of spring than with a giveaway?  The winner or winners will be announced within 24 hours of the end of the giveaway.

We are planning to add more merchandise to the store on a regular basis, so stop in and browse often!

Well, I'm in the top 5, so maybe that's a good thing. Please throw my name into the hat. I've also added your pretty Cabbage Rose button to my sidebar.
Congratulations on the opening of your new Etsy store. I am so HAPPY for you! :)

Putting you foot in your mouth. That was funny. I so often do the same thing.

Also already a follower but congrats are in order - well done on your first Etsy foray.

I have just read back the stories about your son and his birthday. So touching and I'm sure he appreciates your efforts. That casserole cooking friend is lovely.

That's so cool! Felix and I started silkscreening a long time ago but haven't had much time for it lately- I should go dust of the equipment and get to work!

Good luck with the store, how fun :)
