**GIVEAWAY**

I'm in a bit of a slump. Personally, Emotionally, Physically, and Artistically. So in an effort to rectify that I've decided to take a giant step back and stop worrying about what is and what isnt selling, the etsy forums, all of it. I'm making a vow to myself to get back to doing what I do simply because I LOVE doing it!

So, with that said, its time to celebrate, and what better way to celebrate than with a GIVEAWAY. Yahoo! Free Stuff! Everybody loves free stuff!

So heres the deal, if you'd like to be entered for a chance to win some goodies all you have to do is simply leave a comment on this here fancy schmancy blog post (make sure you let me know how I can get ahold of ya!) and in a week I'll write all of the names entered on a piece of paper and pull one of a hat. - the good old fashioned democratic way!

And of course ANYONE can enter!
I wont draw names until at least 10 people have commented too!
Ok Ok Ok, enough of all of that mumbo jumbo.... lets get on to the prizes~!

1st place - Lifes a Beach Altered Journal (Measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches)

2nd place - Blue Bells - Hypoallergenic Kidney Wire Earrings

3rd place - Lotus Star Paisley Amy Butler Cards and Envelopes - Set of 6
4th and 5th place winners will recieve a promo code for 20% off any item in either of my 2 shops
Let the games begin :-)

Oh! Me me! :)

I hope business picks up for you soon. Can't wait to see what you come up with for my custom journal. :)

I'm hoping that in May business will pick up for everyone. Hopefully the economic stimulus checks will actually, you know, stimulate the economy a little bit. :) Gotta get the word out and encourage people to spend those checks buying handmade in the US!

Pretty journal :)

I know the feeling about getting discouraged... my shops aren't doing as well as I would like, my blog has no readers, and my personal/school/work life is overwhelming at best....

Keep up the hard work and it will pay off (I'm trying to keep telling myself this as well hehe)
