Happy Backward Birthday Give Away!

As Misty pointed out yesterday, we have reached the 1 year anniversary of opening our Etsy Shop! What a year it has been! We owe you guys so much for being so supportive of this endeavor. With that in mind, we're pleased to announce our Happy Backward Birthday Give-Away!


Now, we've never been known for following the usual trends, and we're not about to start. So, instead of getting presents for our "birthday", we're going to give some away! We're at the peak of summer, when everything is fresh - fresh veggies, fresh air... you get the idea. So we've chosen one great summer scents for this give away - Fabulous Cucumber Mint. Its a deliciously crisp blend of mild cucumber and cooling fresh mint - perfect for the dog days of summer ahead.


And this isn't just any old give away. The lucky winner is going to be getting a set of Full Size Products from our summer line up - almost $30 worth of products! You will receive:
1 5oz bar of glycerin soap, 1 4oz jar of our Goats Milk and Honey lotion, 1 8oz jar of Skin Softening Bath Salts, and 1 5oz jar of our Exfoliating Sugar Scrub.



Ways to enter:

1 - leave a comment on this entry telling us your favorite part of summer.

2 - be a follower of our blog (you do not need to leave a comment letting us know you follow us, these entries will be pulled from our followers list from blogger.com)

3 - every item purchased from our shop before August 1st will get you 1 entry

4 - post a link to this contest on your social networking site of choice (1 entry per website, leave a separate comment for each link-back to have them all counted... maximum 3 entries per person via social networking) examples include blogs, facebook, myspace, twitter, plurk etc.


Entry deadline is 11:59pm August 1st (the one year anniversary of our first listed item). Winner will be chosen at random from all entries using the Randomizer at www.random.org and will be announced on August 4th (the one year anniversary of our first sale!).


We're looking forward to moving into the next year with lots of new product lines, fabulous new scents, and of course, lots of time getting to know our customers - because without you, we wouldn't be here at all.

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary.

My favorite part of summer is sitting on the porch swing in the back yard, watching the dogs play, and reading a good book!

It seems that great minds think alike! Today is also my birthday (not joking!) and I decided to do it hobbit-style and hold a giveaway on my blog...wherein the winner gets to pick something from your shop which I will get for them.
What are the chances. LOL!!!!! http://brightonwoman.blogspot.com/2009/07/its-my-hobbit-birthday-yes-that-means.html

Oh, and because I want to enter too :) My favorite part of summer is either sleeping-in or homemade ice cream. (I have a darn good recipe.) I confess I also like the ease of wearing sandals all the time...I live in AK so big socks and boots are must-haves for much of the year, and I always enjoy sandal time.

Happy Anniversary!

My favorite part of summer is in June, when we're all excited to get the first warm day, so we can put on sunglasses, don our new sandals and listen to reggae music....

....or in July, 80 degrees, in the shade, sprawled out in the cool grass with an iced tea...

I forgot what I was supposed to be doing - is that it?

My favourite part of summer is enjoying trying to cool down; i.e. with grapefruit sherbet, a cool shower, lemonade and probably the only time of year I might drink a beer!
