This is MY month. My name AND my birth month.
Time for the 2012 Birthday Give Away!
If you want to see how things got started, read this post from April 1, 2008
Basically I take the time (because time is so precious) during the month of April to work on some projects in order to try something new, work on a specific skill, or just to make something I love to make again and again. Than at the end of the month (the 30th, MY BIRTHDAY), I give them all away.
In January 2011 I dedicated my etsy shop to be used exclusively to fund these Birthday Give Aways. It worked great for 2011.
But for 2012 I had enough to buy supplies but am afraid I’ll be a little short for shipping out these items. If you are interested in helping to support this years Birthday Give Away or ones in the future stop by the shop. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ***Update – I am set for 2012. Thanks for your support.
Each year I have had a little twist to how things work and this year I think I will go back to how things were originally done.
Here’s How It Will Work
My Part – I will make some gifts and post about them as much as I can this month. Most gifts will be made this month but some might be pulled from the shop or be finished projects that were made since last April. We will see. On the 30th (my birthday) I will hold a drawing and give away all the gifts posted during the month.
Your Part – To be eligible for my Birthday Give Away drawing, comment on any of my April 2012 posts. You will receive one entry for each post commented on.
On My Birthday – I will organize all the comments on each of my April posts and use the Random Number Generator to choose one name for each gift. Once all the gifts have a name attached to them I will post the winners (NOT the corresponding gift. I want this part to be a surprise) and send out e-mails to let the winners know they have won and find out where to ship the gift to. If I don’t here from a winner within a week I will choose another. Hopefully I will hear from everyone in a timely manner and all gifts will be shipped out the next day.
If you have any questions leave them in comments of this post and I’ll answer them there.
It’s going to be a great month.
