My First Giveaway!

Hi everyone, Melissa's blog here. Now that 100 fabulous readers have publicly confessed their affection by becoming followers, it's time to celebrate! And what better way to say thanks for reading me than with a giveaway?
Last week Melissa posted the choices for a prize, and the winner (by a mile) is...
The coffee cup cozy!


Melissa's super excited about this. I know because she checked the votes and comments about every 10 minutes!

Now I know she's going to want you to comment on something about HER, but don't forget about ME! I want to know how to keep you readers happy. What do you want to hear about? Recipes? Tutorials? Etsy interviews?

So here are the entry options:

1. Take a look at Melissa's sold items and comment on which piece(s) you think she should make again.
2. Comment on your favorite kinds of blog posts to read, or even what you don't like to read.
3. Follow or subscribe to me, the blog!
4. Follow Melissa on twitter
5. Become a Facebook fan

Each comment is one entry, so please leave them separately. Also please include your email address so you can be contacted if you are the winner!

Contest ends January 17th!

Love,
Melissa's Blog

Hi Melissa's blog... just gotta say that I'm following you as a blog, on Twitter, and Facebook and then I'm also completely in love with your shop and plan on ordering a custom business card cozy once my PayPal has money in it, because I've never seen such cute stuff in my entire life. Seriously.

So, from your sold items, I'd have to say I love the business card cozy best. LOVE IT.

And then for blog content, I'd love to see some tutorials! I love tutorials. I don't like interviews so much, as that is usually an Etsy blogger theme and I see way too many of them (its nice and all, but I get a little bored of reading nothing but interviews sometimes). Never get bored of creative projects, though!

Love your blog and shop!

ElegantSnobbery said...

Oh, I totally failed at commenting... ooops, lets try this again. Okay, my last entry was for following your blog... this entry can be for following you on Twitter.

ElegantSnobbery said...

Okay, and this one can be for following you on Facebook.

ElegantSnobbery said...

And this one can be for saying that I like your business card holders (read above, obviously)....

ElegantSnobbery said...

Okay, and this one can be for the part of the above comment in which I said I liked tutorials from your options above. Although to be frank, I really like catching a glimpse of my favorite bloggers life... so posting about you and what makes you tick would probably be preferable.

she should definitely make the Whimsical Midnight Necklace again!
