A SPECIAL GIVEAWAY!!! Guess Who Is One-Year Old??? Mrs. Kwitty's at Etsy!



Happy Etsy-versary to me! yeah! Yup, one year ago (tomorrow) April 17th, I found Etsy and signed up--and my life made a major change. Isn't it funny how one day will change everything? I guess that is just how life is. Thankfully, this day had made a change for the good. I didn't actually add any products to my shop for about another month, because this was a huge leap for me. I didn't even know anything about digital photography at the time, didn't know much about computering at all actually! lol Soooo, this has been a big learning experience for me. Sometimes the best way to learn to swim is to just jump in the water, right?!! Now here it is a year later and I have a fairly successful Etsy shop (as of today: 225 sales, 488 hearts, 255 positive feedback), a BLOG, a large Flickr account, a new boutique account that is looking to be very promising, and lots of wonderful new friends! I am so thankful for all of this!!!! YEAH!!!!!

I would like to show my appreciation to all the wonderful people who read my blog and visit my Etsy shop--by giving away one of my little shadowbox collages (pictured above). It is made with an image of a pretty little nosegay from a vintage greeting card, some rick rack (of course!! lol), vintage wallpaper, buttons, glitter, and rhinestones, all framed up in a cute little 5" x 5" shadowbox frame. It bears a tag that reads "friendship"--a wonderful thing worth celebrating! After all, isn't that really what I am celebrating here? yes.

Just leave your comment here, with some way for me to reach you (your blog addy, etsy addy, email, etc.) and I'll toss your name in the hat for the collage. Let's see....I'll do the drawing on next Tuesday (april 24)--that will give people a week to find this. OK? Good luck everyone. HUGS!!
