here it is...

Grand Opening Giveaway!

Hello everyone (:
I am somewhat new (okay maybe really new) to selling on Etsy and I’ve always wondered about different ways I can get my shop out there and promote it, so what better way to do this than by starting a grand opening giveaway!? I’ve read many blogs about how success giveaways can be to promoting your shop (and blog) and I wanted to do this while at the same time creating and doing what I love to do. Also, giving gifts is always fun!

So… I am excited to announce that the grand opening giveaway is officially open!
I’ve gathered up many different cute items for the giveaway and I can’t wait to get it started! Of course, since I’m really a big big fan of pretty packaging, all of these prizes will come nicely wrapped as if ready for gift giving! (or even just a gift for yourself)
I’m really excited and hope that this giveaway is successful! Thanks!

There are several ways on how to enter.
When entering, make sure that you leave separate comments for each different way. This increases the chances of winning.
Also include your email address on each comment so I have a way of contacting you if you don’t already have a website, blog, etc.

Here are some of the ways:
1. First, visit my etsy shop and then comment with one item you liked the most.
2. Comment with tips on how I can improve my etsy shop, or anything else about selling on Etsy.
3. Post a blog about this giveaway/feature it in a blog, OR post this image:
{image link: }
then leave a comment with the link to where you posted.
4. Make a purchase on my etsy shop then show me the transaction # (this will give you 4 extra comments – simply comment with the transaction # and what you purchased first, then go ahead and comment 4 more times freely about anything you want).
5. Tell a friend about my giveaway! Just leave a comment with who you told or who told you about this giveaway!

That’s it! (:
Winner will be picked with and announced on that Monday.
Winner will also be contacted via email! (This is a surprise package so you won't know exactly what you will get until you receive it!)
Any questions please email me! Alright get to entering!

The first shegreetstheday GIVEAWAY!

just wanted to say...
shegreetstheday is having a
details coming soon!

About me:

Hello everyone!
First of all, my name is Jane, I’m 16 years old and I am somewhat new here in the blog world. Somewhat as in, I’m new to blogging here BUT not new at finding great inspiration and wanting to write about it. I wanted to start this blog because I was so so so inspired by the many bloggers, artists, and just lovely people out there who love what they do and do what they love (: Well anyways, I’m just here to write about whatever comes to mind or catches my eyes, and hopefully inspire others as much as I have been over the year. I've also started my own etsy shop to hopefully sell some of the things that I enjoy creating.
One of my favorite bloggers is ohhellofriend, and once upon a time ago she created this list of things she wanted to do in 1001 days. I loved that idea and did my own here. You can see all the random things I want to do (it’s also not finished because I know there’s plenty more I’d like to accomplish that I can’t think of now).
Another favorite is umbrellastand. I find her whole reason to create and sell the things she makes to be an inspiration. Being around the same age as her, it’s great to know that someone my age can think about the future, and how financially troubling it may be at times which is great to start now. I hope that we can become blogfriends soon! Haha.

Here are some random facts about me:
+ I love God, my family, my boyfriend Alan, and my great friends!
+ I spend lots and lots of time splurging through the wonderful world of Etsy.
+ I really want to become some sort of designer when I’m older, possibly an interior designer or graphic designer.
+ Dip `n dots is my favorite type of ice cream, mainly because it looks really pretty (:
+ San Diego, CA is where I call my hometown.
+ Although I love the west coast, I really want to live or at least have a house in the east coast.
+ I’m absolutely obsessed with birdcages.
+ I love giveaways and hope to do a lot very soon, especially items donated from other creative people & not just myself.
+ I’ve always been in love, but this time I really fell in love with packaging and details in packaging when I stumbled upon the flickr group nicepackage.
+ Dancing is another passion and I’ve been dancing since I was 9 years old.
+ I’m really into home d├ęcor.
+ I love taking polaroid pictures.
+ I’m often shy about what I post and what people will think, but I’m learning that it’s okay to just put my myself out there and let people think what they want. (I just hope its more positive than negative)
+ I really love meeting new creative people and making new friends.
+ & I love making people happy (:
