First Ever Salad Days Giveaway!

Let me tell you a story about how two Christmases ago I was convinced to do a Holiday Craft Fair to sell cards with a friend whose name I won't mention. I have a small, little tendency to get a tiny bit carried away sometimes so I made a lot of cards. Like a ton. I sold a pretty good amount and actually came out ahead, surprisingly, but had so many cards left over. So I created an Etsy shop and posted a bunch of stuff thinking that it would be a good way to get rid of my left over cards and make some money. I didn't sell a single thing. Awesome. So, two years later and I still have more cards than I can ever foresee using. So you, my lucky blog readers get to benefit from my obsessive card making.

I'm happy to present you my first ever blog giveaway. I'm hoping that by doing one myself, all that good giveaway karma will come back to me and I'll eventually win one of the many giveaways I enter.

One lucky reader will receive a set of 6 handmade Christmas cards with coordinating envelopes as well as 8 gift tags.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post and I will choose someone at random and send them the goods. I'll leave it open until Thursday night but come back next week for another set of cards and tags.

Sorry folks, this giveaway is done. Terese is the lucky winner.

Those would be perfect to give to neighbors with a plate of cookies. So cute. I love the tags too. How tdo you have the stamina to make so much cuteness in one sitting?

Man, your blog has MADE it if you're doing giveaways. Count me in the running, of course. I'm sure you know about random.org but I'd actually recommend just picking your favorite person.

Yes, please! I don't have any holiday cards, so these would be perfect.

Sign me up. After winning the cookie giveaway over at Elizabeth's blog, I'm ready to push my luck here, and make everyone doubly jealous.
