I tried to think of something cute that I could give away this week leading up to the 4th of July, and decided that these new felt sparkle watermelons would be just right. They really say "summer" and picnics and barbecues and all things wonderful to me. I love the crystal "bling" for the seeds!
If you want to win one, you can enter like this:
1. COMMENT- either here or on my Facebook page so I know you want to enter.
2. SHARE with friends via text, email, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, whatever, and tell me you did for an extra entry. Or you can PIN IT on http://pinterest.com for credit for sharing.
3. (NEW): if you're on my list of people who've made a purchase from my shop in the week surrounding the giveaway (in this case, it would be anyone who has made a purchase from Wednesday, June 22 through Wednesday, June 29), you get 2 extra entries as a special bonus- plus, if your order hasn't shipped when the giveaway posts, I will refund your shipping charges if you win!
4. CHECK BACK Wednesday morning, when I will post the results of the giveaway!
I am really excited to work on a bunch of new stuff next week. I will be putting my Etsy shop in vacation mode July 2-9, and although http://www.mylittlepixies.com will be accepting orders, processing times will be extended from the usual (except in special circumstances) because I am taking a week off to regain focus and relax and be with my family and try to find my creative space again. I've been so busy recently that I feel like I just need a break for a week or so! I have SO MANY IDEAS that I want to try, but no time to try them! So what the heck? I work for myself- I'll take a vacation!
I can't wait to introduce you to new colors and maybe even get to perfect a new technique or two! It's my goal to get my fall "line" started as well because autumn and then the crazy holidays will be here before we know it and I want to be prepared to have totally awesome stuff in my shop- and also prepared to balance increased seasonal demand with savoring the precious moments with my girls- one of whom is turning FIVE on Thursday!!
Here she is with her daddy at the family birthday party we had this weekend with my mom and dad and sisters and bro and nephew this weekend- 10 people sleeping in our little house! So much fun! :)
