Big News and a Giveaway!

Remember  that back burner project I mentioned last week? The one that I've been sitting on for years? Well, I'm finally ready to make it happen, and I'm so excited to spill the beans! I'm finally opening an etsy shop!



When E and I were planning our wedding, I bought a Gocco (a tiny Japanese printing press) to print our invitations and fell instantly in love. It became a bit of an obsession, really. Since then it's been almost four years, and I've made invitations for friends and family members, as well as tons of other projects. I received lots of great feedback, and people were always asking me, "When are you going to start selling these?" Right now! Maybe it's crazy to open an etsy shop when you are expecting a baby in a couple of months, but I know if I don't do it now, I won't ever do it. I resolved to stop procrastinating and start making things happen. It's been a lot of work and a lot of trial and error, but I am determined to do this right.

In that spirit, I'd love for you all to take a look at the shop! You can also visit my Facebook Page and become a fan! Here are a few of the things I've posted so far, with many more to come (hopefully a new item each day).













As  a thank you for all of the support you guys have given me over the last four years, I'm hosting a special Grand Opening Giveaway for my followers! I'm giving away a set of Gocco printed gift tags, plus a single Valentine card of your choice. Just leave me a comment letting me know you're a follower! Don't forget to leave me your email so that I can contact you.  I'll choose a winner via random.org on Febrary 1st.

As a little added bonus : If you make a purchase by February 8th, I will toss in a Valentine Card of your choice for free. Just type in the code SNICKER when you check out!
