I've been thinking for sometime now that I wanted to hold my first contest.
In a previous life, back before I had a child that kept me occupied most of the day I would enter online contests for fun. I was pretty good at it too - winning a Kitchen Aid Stand mixer, an Xbox, a year of Netflix, etc.
The downside to all that contest entering was all the junk mail and little items I won that I didn't have any use for. Shot glasses with company logos on them, t-shirts in the wrong size - you get the picture.
When I started this path down natural parenting and simple living a few years ago, I just couldn't justify all the extra items that were coming through our door. The extra packaging, the junk mail, the items that ended up in the landfill or on their way to good will. Sweepstaking and decluttering didn't really go hand in hand.
But still - there is something exhilerating about opening your mail box and finding a prize waiting for you!
So here's the scoop. I'm running my very first contest. Up for grabs is a darling trio of needle felted hearts in red, white, and pink. Perfect for Valentine's Day. Perfect for your late winter nature table. Perfect to give to the one you love!
And one of my large Waldorf Star lanterns in a myriad of rainbow colors!
This contest is open to my friends overseas as well.
