Scrapbooking Giveaway!!

I was cleaning out the cupboards in my workroom when I came across a box I'd forgotten I had!  It contained several things I had left from the days when I was a Creative Memories consultant.  "What to do with these?" I thought... and then it came to me.  Use them for a blog giveaway!

So I put together the following package to give to the lucky winner:

It contains three sets of cutting templates- oval, circle and "fun", a cutting mat, three cutting blades, a corner rounder (my personal favourite) and a packet of printed papers.

How to enter:
Comment here, telling  us briefly what you would do with this prize if you were the winner. 

For bonus points you can choose to do any of the following:
  • Buy something from any Etsy shop with "teamCAC" in the shop announcement, profile or listing- copy a link to the transaction here. (5 points) http://www.etsy.com/ (search for teamCAC)

  • Go to my etsy shop and have a look around http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40745291 Leave a comment with your favourite listing (just copy the URL from the address bar when you have the listing open)

Etsy Encouragement

I recently found I had some time to start making things again, and a friend recommended Etsy as a place where I might be able to find buyers. 
So I opened shop in the hope of making some money. I haven't yet, but I have been amazed at blessings and encouragement I have received! That has been so much more wonderful than succeeding in a business sense!

Last night I spent a bit of time among the Critique and Promotion forums, where I met Handspun Handmaiden in several of the threads.

I hearted her shop, (http://www.etsy.com/shop/HomespunHandmaiden )
discovered her very edifying blog, http://guardedheart-grace.blogspot.com/  and convo'd her in response to a comment she left in the forums.

"Therefore all things whatever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them..." Matthew 7:12

And the Winner is...

My First Giveaway- and a bit of self promotion!

I'd like to help other crafters promote their wares through this site, but what point is there in promoting without an audience?  I need followers!

So here's how it works.
  1. Tell someone else about my blog and encourage them to join.- (if they join you get 1 point)
  2. Follow my blog. 
  3. Leave a comment after this post, telling who you heard about me from.
  4. Go to my etsy shop and have a look around http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40745291
  5. Leave a comment with your favourite listing (just copy the URL from the address bar when you have the listing open)
  6. Repeat step 1 as often as you like!
You get one point for each of the above.  The promothion will end two weeks from now ie 6:25 pm Australian EST on Thursday 22nd April 2010  (or 4:25 am EST  onWednesday 21st April in the US), the winner being the person with the most points.  In the case of a tie, the winner will be drawn randomly from a hat (or ice cream container or some other receptacle!)

Oh, yes!  I nearly forgot to mention the PRIZE: the choice of any two items from my shop (excluding custom orders).

In Progress...

If you've come for a visit... sorry, there's nothing here yet.
My aim is to see if I can help some fellow crafters promote their stuff, but I will get things organised when I have a bit more time.   I'll need some more followers, too- no use promoting something without an audience!
Meanwhile, why don't you visit my main blog and get to know me a bit better.  I'd love to hear your comments, too!
