My first Giveaway.

I am so excited!
I have never done this before.
You know, never given away free stuff.
I think that I am going to like this.
So much so, that I will have to do it again.
If tons of people enter-then I will definitely have to do this again!
I really like the whole idea of being the most popular girl in blog land.
Yes, I know that I am not, but I didn't get a Valentines present so......
Anyway-on with the prize!
As you all know, I love to decorate. Especially for holidays.
I don't have a lot of St. Patricks Day decor, so I figured most people don't either.
So I made some-just for you!
First, a rag wreath. Sorry girls, the wreath holder is not included. This super cute wreath is made in the same way as a garland, just in a circle.
A little bit of luck-irish style. A cute little container filled with Luck and a couple of four leaf clovers~This would be so cute on a table with a green plant or by a lamp, or in a hutch or get the idea.
Last but not least-this cute little clover under glass. Perfect to hang from a knob. It will definitely bring you lots of luck! Also, a little bit of chocolate gold-to make you extra happy!
Lucky, lucky!!
So, what do you have to do to enter?
I just launched my etsy
It will be full of all kinds of homemade goodies.
It's not super stocked right now, but I will keep adding to it.
1st-Go and check out my etsy store. Come on back and leave me a comment about some things that you like and an etsy store tip. Since I am new to this whole game, I would love advice. How to make my shop look better, how to bring people to my shop, what you would like to see in the shop etc.....
2nd-Post about my giveaway on your blog. You know, the more people that know about you the better right?
3rd-Follow me. (not literally-I know, lame joke)
Put your info and stuff just to let me know that you love me so much that you want to know everything about me!!! :)
4th-Every person you send on over here, and they tell me. You get another entry.
How can you not win?
4 entries! Easy, Easy!
The giveaway will end on Wednesday night at 10 p.m. mountain time.
I will post on Thursday who the lucky winner is!!
Good Luck to you all!

Hooray for you!!! You started an etsy sight. I'm so happy for you!
Your handmade goodies are darling. I wish you much success!!!!!!!!!!

Jessica G. said...

Love the VT kits! Great idea!
My only suggestion would be to include more of an introduction to your shop and it's purpose on the first page - but don't go crazy on the exclamation points...drives me crazy when shops do that.

Oh Tausha... I MUST win this!! I do follow you AND I am excited you opened your etsy shop! Yah!!

Carrie said...

Good luck on your store! Love the Valentine kits!

Shannon said...

Congrats on your new etsy shop!! Everything was so cute!

I love all your St. Pats day decor. You are right, I don't have any St. Pats decor! :)

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

Tausha, what a fun idea! I think your etsy shop is cute...CONGRATS on opening one! You're inspiring me to open mine. I really like the pins included in your kits. Are you gonna sell those super cute rag wreaths in your store? I definitely think you should...they'd be very popular. Also that cute container from your giveaway, I think those would be good sellers too. Good luck!


p.s. This giveaway is a great way to get people to your esty! I'll try to post about soon.

Allison said...

I love it. Pick me. Pick me.

Pretty Organizer said...

Visiting teaching kits! How clever are you! Wow girl... you'll make bank with these clever ideas.

One thing I've realized with etsy... it's nice to have things priced on the lower end. My hat boxes are so fun and cute and I've sold enough to make it worth it but they are so big that when you include shipping...HOLY COW! You've got a great priced product and a specific niche. Good job!

Enter me! What a great looking wreath and well, the hubby still claims Irish roots this time of year even though it's back a few generations. I do the whole corned beef meal and everything!

Hey, haven't checked back for awhile but hope all is well with your family.
Take care,
Pretty Organizer

You are so FREAKIN' creative. I'm in awe. But I always knew this was you! I had no idea etsy shops even existed. I know...I'm new at this whole thing. Thanks for saying you like my short hair! Yours looks great, too. I love it. I am in the process of growing mine out...again. We'll see how long that lasts!

jenjen said...

What a cute giveaway!!! I found you through Kimba. I would love to be entered! Good luck on your etsy shop!!


PS - I am having a giveaway too if you want to come over!

Erin said...

What a fun giveaway. I'm going to have to check out your etsy sight for sure!

Trudi said...

Your green day give away is great. New to your blog, and it's very cute. I am working on rag swags for my windows. I have one more to go and them I'm going to post about them. I looked at your little picture and just about popped. I teach in a special ed. classroom. I was thinking about crafts for the kids, and told myself that I needed to take my heart punches in so the kiddos can make shamrocks. Then I thought about making myself something too. Too funny. I have nothing for St. Patrick's day for my home. However, I did pick up some hand towels at Kolhs this weekend.

Leigh said...

Congratulations! That is cute as pie!

The Karafa Family said...

It's meant to be! I have the same wreath hanger!

Girl with the Curlz said...

What a cute giveaway. Count me in. Your Etsy store is very cute. I love all the St. Patricks day things. One holiday I don't have very much of.


Jen said...

You are so fun!!! Luv luv luv the rag wreath! I can't wait the see the March VT kits....I want a couple for sure! Sorry about not getting together this past week to do the magazine swap and stuff! This cold/flu bug we've had pretty much wiped me out. I'll call you this week and we'll hook up ok? Oh and yes please, I would love to be entered in your fab-U- lous giveaway!!!

I love the pins in the teaching kits-so cute! The canvas flower art piece is adorable too! I don't have an Etsy store so I don't have any advice for you other than keep making the items you are making-they are awesome!

3LittleByrds said...

Love the St. Patty's decor. I have none. How sad.

Clean and Classic Interiors said...

I'm new to this whole blogging thing but it was fun to find your site and enjoy your first give away! What cute items you create. Best of luck to you!

Martha (aka Yvette) said...

Love the Plate and the little girls nail kit, so cute, and the Luck tin...

Do you have a "follow" thingy on your blog somewhere where I'm not seeing but I'll follow you without it :).

I think your etsy shop is cute if you had a "button" for it I'd post it on my blog :)but giving stuff away is a GREAT way to get traffice and I'll blog about it to :).

Martha (aka Yvette) said...

p.s. shannon from Bless our Nest sent me to yours :)

Martha (aka Yvette) said...

ok I blogged about your giveaway and your etsy store :)

Sarah said...

I really like your St.Patty's Day stuff. I was just thinking today I need to start looking for green to add to my decor for March!
Adding you to my list of blogs I follow now! :)
Your etsy shop is cute, I think if you put more of what you are able to make and why you are selling, etc. Just kind of explain who you are and what you specialize in it will be fab!

shumashuma said...

I HEART the VT kits!!! What a great idea! I will have to get some for sure. By the way I saw a link to your blog from Bless our nest. I want to win though but thought I would giver some credit.=)
I will put a link up to your blog from my page so I can check out other awesome things you post.

Darlene said...

Hi Tausha,

I LOVE your giveaway CUTE. I only have a couple of St. Patrick's Day things out and these would look GREAT in my home. I went to your store and I LOVE the container with the LUCK in it. I will add you to my favorites and follow you. Good luck on your Etsy store.♥

julie said...

Jillybean said...

I really like the VT kits. What a great idea!
Will you be offering a service to do the visiting teaching too? ;0)

Em @ Bunch of Scrap said...

Cute giveaway! I love all the "green" goodies! I keep adding to your package of stuff I intend to send SOON... I am sure you wont mind that I held out and added some Chocolate to the mix ;)

Amanda said...

I love the vt gifts and the price is great. oh and i love the giveaway items. you're very creative.

Angela said...

I love the February Visiting Kits. They are so cute! I think having giveaways is the best way to introduce your shop to blog readers. Ask your friends with blogs to host giveaways for you so you can receive exposure to different readers.

dctm said...

The canvas flower art piece is too cute. It would really good personalized also. I think they best way to get your shop out there is word of mouth (blog land). Have all your blog friends post about your giveway on their sites.

LuLu said...

So cute, and you are right i don't have any St. Patrick's Day decor! good luck with your etsy site.. they are the best> You have great ideas.

Crazycozartclan said...

Okay.... here I am! I saw your cute giveaway a while ago but what with trying to get all my kids healthy again before my trip I've not been able to be on the computer much. If they would just quite puking everywhere I could get back to the truly important things. Which of course is me and my needs one of which is blogging. I know we need to do a girls night, but I always say that. It's a matter of making it happen. I love the VT kits too. They sell those around town but they aren't nearly as cute as yours. I'm sure I'll be calling. : ) SO does this enter me into the giveaway?
