And the winner is…

Thank you to everyoone who helped me celebrate my first year on Etsy by entering my giveaway.  There were 32 names put in the felted bowl this morning.

I asked for a volunteer to draw a name from the bowl, and my lovely middle son, Alec kindly offered.

And the name that was drawn out, and therefore  the winner of the chick and nest, is….

Congratulations Clair, if you could let me have your address, I will get your prize to you.

Not wanting to leave everyone else with nothing.  I am taking part in a free shipping promotion on Etsy.  So any purchase within the UK, for the duration of March will be entitled to free shipping by using the code FREEMARCH13.

Competition time

In 4 days time it will have been a year since I opened Aisling Designs on Etsy.  It has been a very steep learning curve, learning how to promote myself (which I’m still not very good at!), learning how to take better pictures, and how to try to make your products seen in such a massive market place.  40 sales in a year is a good starting block, and I am excited to see where Aisling Designs go this next year.  Thank you to everyone who has supported me this last year, and to celebrate I would like to offer you the chance to win a little Easter decoration.

This is what you could win.  Perfect for the Easter table or even for a seasons table.  A cute little chick is just emerging from it’s silk cocoon egg, with one of it’s siblings not far behind it.

How can you win?  I’m not a great fan of making people jump through hoops, but in the name of promotion (remember I said I wasn’t very good at that!) I would like you to promote this in any way you can, so follow me on twitter, facebook, Etsy, and of course you can sign up for update right here on my blog. The more you do, the more chances you have of winning, just leave a post below and let me know what you have done, and where you have shared it.

The closing date for the competition is 28th February 2013 at 9pm.

Thank you again, and good luck.


And the winner is…

Thank you everyone for joining me in celebrating a year of Aisling Designs.  Although the giveaway closed last night, I waited until my little helper could join me this morning to make the draw.  16 names written out and folded up, one little hand making a choice.The suspense as she slowly unravelled the paper.And the winner is…..Karen Hughes (in case you can’t read my writing!) Congratulations!!

I would have loved each and every one of you to have won the birthday banner.  But I think I will be making some more to add to the shop, and perhaps one for ourselves too!

Thank you again for joining in with me.
