Its my Etsyversary! (Giveaway Time!)

I listed my first item on Etsy around September 15, 2009. Its already been a year . . . and what a year its been! I've learned listing strategies, started using twitter, learned about and complied with CPSIA guidelines, discovered that I don't make enough to be a business (great news at tax time . . . lol!), bought too much yarn, made tons of friends, started my fan page, and bought lots of homemade goodies! Its been super fun! I can't wait to see what this year brings!

So, in honor of my first year, lets do a giveaway! The 1st place prize is super fun . . . are you ready? . . . its 20% off all your orders until September 15, 2011. Woo hoo! 2nd place is free shipping to the US and Canada on all your orders until September 15, 2011 (international customers will recieve $2.00 off shipping costs on each order instead). 3rd place wins a free hair accessory or pair of booties . . . your choice of item and color scheme.
