As of July 31st I will no longer be doing blog giveaways using ETSY. After several nasty e-mails over the past few days, I feel that it is time to stop. These giveaways are meant to be fun to all who enter and helpful to the shop owner's business. All current blog giveaways will continue. I will also consider doing future giveaways with the ETSY shop owners who have been a part of my past giveaways.
As for shopping on ETSY, I have found some really new and neat things. Meeting all of these shop owners has been great, and I have really made some great new friends. I will continue to shop with them, and them only.
If you or someone you know is interested in doing a giveaway with me, please let me know. If you know of another great site to find similar ETSY items that would be great too! My hope is to continue blog giveaways, but ETSY is no longer the place. I have enjoyed doing these giveaways and meeting all of you that have entered as well as the sellers. Your stories are all so interesting and some even similar to my own.
No need to stop following. I will if nothing else go back to once monthly BIG giveaways. Your suggestions are always helpful when the time comes to choose these BIG items.
(Please remember that I purchase these from my own pocket, so lets not think too BIG)
