Giveaway Contest

I'm sure we all love giveaways! When I started this blog a few months ago, I mentioned that I'd do a giveaway at some point. It just has to be done in the right time. So what is a better time than now, a couple of weeks away from my Adore By Nat 2nd year Etsy-versary? Those of you who read my yesterday post probably can't wait :-)

So what is it? or may be the right question is: What ARE they?

How about a $10 Adore By Nat Gift Certificate and a set of Printable Christmas Postcards, a $6 value (shown below) designed by VinK, owner and artist of Million Minds and Design By Vink?

This cute printable design is a limited edition which means, VinK designed them especially for the winners. Sorry, this will not be available for others. Now, those of you that don't win, please don't get panicked. You can still find similar designs at her store. What's so good about printable design? Well, you can print them as many as you like without having to break the bank (except the cost of printing, of course).

By the way, did I just say winners? You betcha! To make this an even sweeter giveaway contest, I will pick 3 winners. One lucky winner will get $10 gift certificate and printable Christmas postcards, while two winners will each get printable Christmas postcards.

How to enter to win:
  1. Go to my Adore By Nat store and one of VinK stores: Million Minds or Design By Vink.
  2. Return to my Adore By Nat blog and simply leave a comment here about our stores (both VinK and mine). I.e. your favorite items.
Contest starts now and ends on November 4, 2008 (my Etsy-versary ;-) Yei!)
One entry per person please. Don't forget to leave me your e-mail address. Entries without contact information will be disqualified. Contest winners will be drawn on Wednesday, November 5th by a random number generator. Winners must respond within 48 hours after being contacted otherwise another winner will be randomly selected.

To end my post of the day, I would like to let you know about how I adore this beautiful print, Dilemma.
I love the fact that behind each VinK's illustration lies an original story (read her blog to know more). It shows her cultural background and the ethnicity of Indonesia. This makes hers a truly one-of-a-kind one that you simply cannot find it anywhere else in Etsy.
