Etsy Giveaway!
Hi everyone!

I have decided to try and get a little more traffic going at my Etsy shop. It's slow going, trying to carve out a niche in the Etsy community, and with a new wave of embroidery hoops and cards coming soon, I'd love to move the pieces I have in the shop now onto new homes!

I also have a second agenda- livening up my blog comments! I want to hear from you! I know you're out there, I check every so often to see how many people are reading. I love to hear what you have to say and I have so enjoyed meeting some of you through the blogging community.

So, here's the game:

Leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win two pieces (your choice) from my Etsy shop. I'll pick a winner via random number generator and announce it early next week. Say hi, say what you had for dinner, say stop posting pictures of your lettuce please, whatever!

Hope to hear from you!


  1. Yes, please stop posting photos of your beautiful garden, as it makes me feel totally inadequate! :-D No, actually I love those pictures. I did once manage to grow lettuce in a container garden, and it was delightful to just step outside and cut some salad greens before dinner.

    Your cards and embroidery look so pretty, and you've photographed them beautifully. I may be venturing into the Etsy world myself shortly, so we'll have to exchange notes on how to get more traffic.

    All the best with the Pin and Purl Shop!

  2. You said the winner gets two of everything from your Etsy store? Sold! Just kidding - I only wish. You've got such cute things, and I especially love that Spring Flowers embroidery piece. Love all your posts. Thanks for posting and hosting your giveaway! :)

  3. I love those garden pics! Have a great weekend, and thanks for the chance to win!

  4. I love being able to follow your life online since I never get to see you anymore! And I really love your starburst embroidery hoops...they would look very pretty hanging above my bed :) Keep the posts coming!

  5. Well, I just dropped into your blog today because of a lovely comment you left on mine and I am hooked. You write in a very dear, honest and funny way, you love gardening and creating and have a small kid, just like me. I think we have a lot to share :-)
    So, if you don't mind shipping this give-away internationally I would LOVE the spring flower embroidery or the garden vegetable greeting cards.

    P.S. The link to your shop is not working with me, but if you copy the one from the picture it works...

    1. Thank you for pointing that out, it's fixed now!

    2. Beautiful work, Christine. My faves are the garden vegetable greeting cards, and the vintage novel greeting cards (so long as they don't contain too much profanity).

  6. Well, I feel like I'm talking all the time, so it's weird to be prompted to do so! :) Hope you're doing well; I enjoy your posts every time.

    Now I will say my prayers to the Random Number Generator... ;)
