I've got a GIVEAWAY for you!!

Consider this giveaway a celebration of sorts. I have reached many of life's milestones within the past few months: marriage, buying our first home, and finishing college. In all the excitement of recent times, my blog and my etsy shop have been a tad bit neglected. I am so glad to know that my awesome readers are still here for me, no matter how busy I get. And now that I've got a little more time to devote to my online pursuits, I'd like to reward you for sticking with me, or if you're new to my blog, for stopping by in the first place!

You probably want to know what's up for grabs. Allow me to show you!



You could win one of these Wearable Baby Terrariums!

They are filled with REAL living moss, and they're super easy to care for. All they need is a drop of water every 2 weeks or so and indirect sunlight. They look lovely when worn as a pendant, or you can place them in your home or office to bring a tiny bit of nature into the room.



HOW TO ENTER

♥ Leave a comment telling me what you'd like to see more of on my blog. Here are some options:
-Tutorials
-Photos
-Recipes
-Reviews (books, music, movies, products)
-Features on other artists and crafters
-Vintage finds
-Opinions on touchy subjects such as religion, politics, etc.
-Fitness tips
-Anything else I've failed to mention

Follow me on Twitter and tweet about this giveaway. Comment with a link to your twitter profile.
♥ Blog about this giveaway. Leave a link to the post in a comment.

Each of the above options counts as an entry, so please leave a separate comment for each one. Make sure to leave your email address with each comment so that I can contact you if you win.

This giveaway is open to all countries- everyone is welcome to participate! The contest starts now and will end at midnight (U.S. central time) on Monday, June 7th. I will draw the winner with a random number generator and post the results on my blog. Once the winner is contacted via email, they will have 3 days to respond before I draw again. Good luck, friends!

Yay for a giveaway!
I'd love to keep on seeing your photos (I miss seeing more squirrels, btw!) and more recipes!

And whatever else you feel like talking about!

Renee said...

Hi Darling!

Thank you for the comment on my blog! You are so awesome! I marked you down for Amby's shower, that is a great way to RSVP in my opinion! It's so fun to get comments on the blog!!

I definitely like your photos and love how every post you make is a story. You always plan out your posts well (I bet someone is a real good lesson planner in school!) and tie everything together so it all makes sense. I say keep doing what you've been doing! Cause you rock!

Can't wait to see you at the shower!

XOXOX

Cool give-away! I wish I could enter, but Australian customs being the hard-asses that they are, I'm pretty sure they would never let that awesome necklace past our shores! :(

Holly, I find anything and everything that you blog about enjoyable to read, but if I had to choose, I love your crafty stuff the most!

Brigid said...

I want to win! I wish your blog had more n00dz!! ;) But seriously, it would be awesome if you threw some fitness stuff on here as well as your craftiness and vintage finds.

Heather Wilson said...

Love it, Holly. I think it's one of my favorites! It reminds me a little of that vile of fairy dust I used to have with the silver fairy wrapped around it... do you remember? I would love to see more vintage finds since I myself have recently become obsessed with vintage items. Keep it up, though I don't see how you find the time for everything. Maybe it's the lists? ;)

Heather Wilson said...

Oh yeah... I follow your blog. Your's and my sisters blog Love, Death and Chocolate, are the only two I follow! I love all the photos on yours!

I like photos myself. I read a lot during the day, so sometimes I just like to veg out with pretty pictures.

Rheea said...

Givewaway from my buddy! I've never seen anything like this in Singapore. Thanks for the chance to win.

Well, what I'll love to see more in your blog. Photos photos and loads of photos! haha. Not that you haven't been spoiling us with tons of photos but I really enjoy looking at all the interesting photos you took. Plus, it always warm my heart to see my buddy's sweet (sometimes cheeky) face. Some book/music review will be good too. Anything that interest you will be interesting to me. I guess that is what a blog is all about.. people read to know more about you and the things you like. If they like you, they'll keep coming back for more! :)

As for things I would like to see more of - probably vintage finds and photos of whatever you want. And recipes are also always fun!

I also tweeted about this. https://twitter.com/melindywolf

Ashley said...

I really like tutorials!! It would be great if you could provide more tutorials and the things you refined in your projects. I lie to craft and create, when you share your lessons to opens more ideas. I never thought to wear a terrarium! Good idea, the style is so simple and lovely.

Ashley said...

I love recipes!!!! Please more food, I need help with appetizer ideas for serving lots of people. Of course, desserts are wonderful!!

Dhesh said...

Love this giveaway. I find photos and vintage finds interesting.

Great giveaway! I love looking at vintage finds :) Hope to see more of that soon!

RogueMagnolia said...

Wow so cute! Sorry, am new to your blog so I can't really provide much advice. I just love those little pendants!

Jasmine1485 said...

I always enjoy step-by-step photos, whether they be for a recipe, craft project or even just a story about something that happened to you. I just like seeing a tiny piece of someone else's life and it always makes it easier to follow instructions if there are both words and photos.
