As many of you already know - in April I supported "makers of free content" - craft artists and shop owners who share free content in their blogs - by experimenting with my very first "Shopping Spree Giveaway".
The winner - Areille - Had the opportunity to chose three patterns from one of four shops:
You can see what she chose here!
Cinnamon Sticks Earrings - image and earrings by Erin at Elisian Studios.
And I just could not wait any longer to own "Cinnamon Sticks"! I fell in love with these earrings from Erin's Elisian Studios Woodland Spice Jewelry Collection the very minute I spied them in her online shop. Now I am wearing them almost every day!
I love Erin's jewelry collections - she is incredibly talented and brings her artist's eye into every piece of her jewelry - and her beads and jewelry components as well. You can find her beautiful jewelry and jewelry components here in her shop Elysian Studios.
Erin has recently turned her attention back to painting and is sharing her work and experiences on her blog. Go visit and see what she is up to these days!!
So - now I would like some input! Please! Because the "Shopping Spree" idea is still a work in progress!
My intention in offering a choice of four shops is to 1) give exposure to more than one artist, and 2) to give those that enter their names in the giveaway several options for shopping - not everyone is into the same crafty expression after all.
So what so you think? Was offering four shops confusing or "inspired"!!!
I love this idea of holding a little Shopping Spree every other month as part of my efforts to support makers of free content and owners of online shops. But I want the Shopping Spree to be a fun experience for those who wish to participate and any suggestions for improvement or change are most welcome and appreciated!
