Grand Opening and Giveaway!!!

Today is an exciting day!!! My Etsy shop is having its grand opening! Something I have been wrestling over doing for months is finally making its debut! Thanks to blogging, your support, and crafty encouragement...I have decided to take the next step in putting my creations out there in hopes for creating a little business for myself. In order to motivate you all to check it out...see the awesome giveaway at the end of this post. ;) The past few days have been some serious crafting boot camp...trying to get enough things done to post. I do not have a huge selection...but a couple of things I have been wanting to do for myself (which you know these are all in my home already!). I have about 2 items for each design to see what sells and to feel everything out a bit...so if you see something you like you better get your hot little hands on it!
So as my dear bloggy friends...you are going to hold my hand and support me through all of this...right? ;) Well, I know you all are softies for a good giveaway...so I thought that I would offer one of these featured items as my giveaway (sorry the apron is not included). But which one???? Hmmm...well I thought the winner could choose their favorite and I will personally make another one just for them (because well...if I was the winner I would want to choose)! So any of these cute little creations could be yours! Yay!

So here's the catch...a few things to get your name into the giveaway drawing...for each item you do I will add that many entries...
.
1. Leave a comment here...and for the sake of giving me some feedback...tell me which item you would want if you won (and don't worry this isn't set in stone, you can change your mind if you win...but it will give me an idea of what you all like)
.
2. Post about it on your blog...give a little shout out to your readers about my blog and my etsy shop...copy and paste the domestic fashionista designs button and make sure to link them back here
.
3. Add the domestic fashionista blog button...just copy the code and paste it into HTML widget
.
4. Add domestic fashionista designs button...again copy and paste HTML into widget
.
5. Become a follower...just click follow...on my left sidebar
.
6. Buy something! ;)

And of course if you have already done some of these things...you are ahead of the game. Just make sure to comment letting me know that you want to enter and what you have done so I know how many times to enter you...oh and you have until next Wednesday, the 28th to enter...a week should be good. ;)

  2. Yay for you!!!
    So glad you're opening a shop...talent like yours should be available for the rest of us to purchase when we're too lazy to create it on our own =)

    You know I'm already a follower, yes???

    I'm absolutely loving the Strawberry Jam Half-Apron and the heart felt ornament...
