Ok, time for a Blog Contest

contest

It's time for a Blog contest. Here is the reason...

I get a lot of comments from people saying... "Oh, I read that on your blog" and I am flabbergasted how many times I hear that, as you, my sweet readers, are ever so quiet. Every so often I'll have a few reply comments here and there to a post (which delights me!) and I wish it would happen more often. So here is the start to a new trend hopefully on the site. I am bribbing you to write a comment. And this post is the post where you get to test your "blogging" skills.

How the contest works:

All you have to do is reply to this post and write whatever you want. You can write "Hi!" or you can write "I want to win!!" it's totally up to you.

We will randomly* select ONE winner on November 15th who will win a set of 30 Personalized Birdie Cards (shown above) AND a matching set of address labels.

No catch. All you have to do is say hello on this post. We will ship to any US or Canadian Address. Please post only once. Although I would love to see a lot of replies...if I see "I love you, signed Mom" more than once, well, Mom, I'm going to have to politely explain the rules.

The moral of this contest - I would love to hear more from you on my blog. Although I will keep talking away for years to come on this blog if I don't see comments, it's always nice to see some "familiar names" in replies.

How to post a reply? See where it says "0 replies" below? (Ok, well, hopefully it will be more than that soon)...click on that and voila! You can reply. :)






* The winners will be chosen at random, using random.org's integer generator.
* Please revisit on November 15th to see who won - if a winner doesn't claim a prize within 3 business days, then we will randomly select another winner. :)

  2. Hey Lindsey,
    Great Idea! I hope I'm the lucky winner. Your stationary is awesome. I've purchased many things and love them all. I find they make great gifts. Especially for baby and wedding showers. My friends just love them.

  3. I always wish I had more people commenting, too. Sometimes I feel like I'm just journaling for myself, and then random people tell me they read something there. Weird! (o:

  17. I like writing notes to friends but I especially love receiving them. There seems to be a bit of a resurgence in letter and card writing which I think is a bit of a lost art.

  21. Oh! I stumbled onto your blog after seeing your prints on Ohdeedoh, and I love your work. I hope I'm the winner!

  22. I'm always interested in learning how people found me, especially since there are so many blogs of interest out there. I suppose one of the best parts of finding new sites is getting sidetracked along the way. So how did I find you, you ask? I searched for 'make your own boardbook' on Google, which lead me to Ohdeedoh, which lead me to Etsy, which lead me to Penny People Designs, which lead me to here! What a journey! Your work is beautifully designed, Lindsay. Especially fond of the alphabet name print. And the contest idea ain't bad either. :)
