I won a giveaway!

Earlier this month I won a giveaway from Michelle at Delicate Construction. The prize was an apron from Amanda of Kaleidoscope of Colors. I was really excited about the apron, but I was also blown away with the entire package and wanted to share it here.

I firmly believe that all handmade Etsy sellers should go the extra mile with their packages, as people who order from a site like Etsy are looking for that extra touch. Amanda definitely went that extra mile.

The little flower is a pin! She also included a gift tag and a business card.

The biggest surprise of this package is that Amanda included one of her brand new items: a bag! I immediately put the little flower pin on it.

I am super picky about bags, but I love this little one. The only thing that it doesn't have is any kind of closure on the top. I think that I'll be able to rig something up so I can use this during the spring and summer.

And of course, the apron is wonderful. I love the fabric, and it fits me perfectly. I tend to make a mess in the kitchen, especially when I'm baking anything with dry ingredients (i.e. flour). I've never worn an apron because I've never been able to find anything affordable that fits me well. I've already worn this a couple times and love it.

Thanks to Michelle for hosting this giveaway and to Amanda for sending me such a generous package!

Has anyone else won a giveaway lately?

  9. I actually just won a gift card from Etsy - I don't even remember entering any contest or giveaway but I had a ball spending that gift card - I bought earrings and a bracelet from you, bought earrings from Sharla of Beaded Tail and had them sent to a friend, then I got me some pearl earrings from Will Oaks Studio and another pair of earrings from ChainMaille...And everything I received was beautifully packaged with a little surprise! Gotta love it...All the jewelry I wear nowadays comes from Etsy!
