I invite you to celebrate my 5th year as a webshop and 4th year as a blogger with me.

As a heartfelt thank you I’ve tried to come up with some unique prizes in honor of the occasion.

Now through Monday, Shipping at the webshop is free in the USA and $2.00 for any size international order. One shopper will receive a 50% discount on their order which will be refunded after the drawing of the winning name next Tuesday.

I’ve made a few ‘reverse’ Project Keepers and have 2 to give away. 1 name will be drawn from those who shop with me this weekend and 1 name will be drawn from those who leave a comment at this post by Monday night. The last giveaway I’m offering is 1 Blackbird Design Stocking – your choice, which I will make for you from one of the monthly design booklets, the name for this prize will also be drawn from those who comment here at this post by Monday night.

Thank you for all your support and friendship – it truly means so much!

    I have a link to your blog on mine…I just love the ideas that you come up with and your photography…and your shop…and the Impie, Hattie, and Bea beauties.
