Ready for Spring Giveaway

I am hosting another giveaway!! These are so much fun! I love to read everyone's comments.

I have added some new items to my Etsy shop since my last giveaway, so I would love for everyone who enters the giveaway to check out my shop!!

The prize: Set of 6 Spring Mini Thank You Cards. Each card measures 2.5" x 2.5", is made of card stock, handstamped and left blank on the inside. These are great for Etsy sellers to send to their customers with orders or for you to give a quick thank you to someone! The cards do not come with envelopes. This set includes 2 each of yellow, mint green, and hot pink. Each card is decorated with coordinating SPRING patterned paper!
The winner will receive this set of mini thank you cards shipped free of charge. In hopes that you love them so much, I am also sending the winner a coupon for a discount on an order of mini thank you cards from my Etsy shop!

To enter: Visit my Etsy shop at DKRScrapNCraft and check out my items, come back here and tell me what you like. Just post a comment on this contest post!

To receive a second entry, post a link to my giveaway on your blog or website, and then post a link for me to find it here on this contest post!

For each entry post, please leave me your email address or Etsy URL so I may contact you if you are the winner!

Contest will end on February 28, 2009 at midnight, EST, and announced here on March 1, 2009. Winner will be drawn randomly from the list of posts. I will contact the winner and he or she will have 48 hours to accept the prize, or another winner will be chosen.

Thank you and Good Luck to everyone!

February Shopping Extravaganza sponsored by Team ESST!

Find this thread at:
EtsySupplyStreetTeam says: Today begins a new Marketing Venture for our Team that we plan on repeating monthly. It will be a Team ESST sponsored - Etsy Wide Promotional event, which will take place on the first weekend of every month. This months sale will run from Thursday, February 5 – Sunday, February 8.

ALL Etsy shops are invited to participate by placing an announcement in your shop and joining us with promoting on this "Official" Promotional thread.

Feel Free to post in your shops announcement the following:
"I am participating in the February Shopping Extravaganza sponsored by Team ESST from Thursday, February 5 through Sunday, February 8th."

This will be a “Shopping Event” similar to a Public Marketplace. There will not be a "Overall theme" since Etsy is a Global Marketplace hence, the seasons, cultures, holidays, etc can vary quite a bit. Although not required, we do strongly encourage shops to have a feature, theme or sale as this can pique interest and help you to draw people to your shop.

You do not have to participate for the whole weekend as we will be posting a fresh new thread each day of the event (the next thread will be posted on Friday morning, Feb 6th, around 7 AM EST). You can easily find the new link by checking the last post of the old thread each day or you can search for the official thread - “February Shopping Extravaganza sponsored by Team ESST” here in the Promotions section of the Etsy forums. All our morning posts will be posted with our team ESST ID.

The only requirement is that you have a shop on Etsy and help promote by joining in and bumping the thread throughout the weekend. Talk about your shop and what you have to offer our shoppers. It is our hope that a large portion of the Etsy community will join in!

Those of you who blog or twitter can post and/or tweet about it and promote to people that are off Etsy to visit us. It will provide the Etsy community with publicity, making our shops more visible, and hopefully creating a monthly event shoppers will look forward to.

Just a note: This isn't an "Etsy sponsored event" but a Team ESST event. Information on our team can be found here: ". If you have any questions please convo

Congratulations to my Threadkiller winner!

I recently hosted a threadkiller contest on Etsy! For those of you who aren't familiar with this, several contests are held on the forums on Etsy. The threadkiller contest host sets his or her own rules. A "threadkiller" is someone who is the last to post for a certain amount of time. In my contest, this was 20 hours!
Congratulations to VividTexture for winning this contest! As a prize, the winning person was to choose an item from my shop $5.00 and under. VividTexture chose one of my Valentine's Day cards! Thank you to all who entered!

Congratulations Marigold!

Congratulations to the winner of my blog giveaway, Marigold! I have notified the winner via email. As posted in the blog, the winner has 24 hours to respond to the email to accept the prize. If the winner has not responded in 24 hours, I will randomly choose another winner!
Thank you to everyone who entered the contest!

Just because you didn't win the contest, doesn't mean you have to go without your favorite item from my shop!! If the item you chose as your favorite is still available, I will offer you 15% off of that item until the end of February!! If the item you chose is unavailable, and you see something else in my shop that you would like to purchase, I will offer you 10% off of that item! If you will convo me on Etsy before you purchase, I can update the price for your discount. Or, you can purchase as normal, and wait for a revised invoice from PayPal to reflect your discount!

Thanks again to everyone! Check back soon for more contests! :)
