true confessions

I have an announcement to make first:

The winner of my first ever giveaway from the Etsy Blog Party is:


Congratulations Demmi!!!

You have won a $10 gift certificate to use in my shop!!

(Demmi, leave me a comment with your full name and address and let me know which item you would like. I left a comment on your blog with more details.)

It was a great success, with many people getting involved. For my giveaway alone there were 92 entries!!! Wow, I'm so grateful to all who gave me great compliments and made my head swell to the size of a Zepplin.

Many of the other shops who had giveaways are offering discounts for another week in their shops. I am going to join in and offer free shipping for a week!! That's right, all you shoppers, head to talkofthetown or kookyhandbags, and for the next 7 days receive free shipping on any item!!! You heard right! ( I hope this annoying sales pitch helps me get a couple of sales!!)
