Pick Your Own Giveaway

This month, in both Etsy shops, there's free shipping to Domestic US and Canada.

To make things more interesting, I decided to try something different for a giveaway. Usually I pick the item I'm giving away.

I wondered what would happen if I gave away the listing (any listing, either shop) that got the most HEARTS as people's favorites.

Each person can mark hearts for as many things as they really like, but only one heart per item per person.

What ever item has the most hearts by Saturday, that item will be the giveaway. No matter what it is. One person will be randomly selected to receive the one item with the most Etsy HEARTS marking it as a favorite.

Am I crazy? Oh, don't answer that for so many reasons ....

Anyway, once you've marked your HEARTS in the Etsy shop come back to this post and leave me a comment so you're in the running for the surprise giveaway. Maybe even leave me a comment about what you marked and why you liked those items best. It's free, it's fun and it's easy. What more could you ask for? And there's a giveaway at the end. Woo Hoo!

What do you think? Totally fun? Totally crazy ... or a bit of both, maybe.

So - go to the
lynndavis and the expeditionD shops and mark your HEARTS - then come back here and post your Reply to be in the running for the random pick on Saturday!

Great idea with the giveaway Lynn!

I love the Padre Pio charm. It really does look like an ancient piece and would make fitting necklace with it.

Hi Lynn,
Just like Lorelei, Fountainbleu Coppertone Round Tile is my favorite listing in the ExpeditionD shop. My Favorite in your LynnDavis Shop is the Madre Medallian Necklace. I am enchanted by the medieval feel of your pieces.

Too hard to pick just one...
I picked...
Winged Skull (am digging skulls lately)
Teach Reach (love all your resin)
Memento Mori Bright (something so sinister)
Open Door (back to my key theme)
Oval Toggle Connector (so versatile)
Fleur de Lis connector (so French)

Love it all!
Best of luck with the giveaway!
Enjoy the day!

India Lotus Jothi-Love the colors in this piece. It would not be in the usual colors I work in so I would love to be challenged to create something with it.

Marie Cramp said...

Fleur de Lys Royale has to be my favorite. I am french and things like that remind me of my roots. I did put a whole lot of hearts out there though, because so many more could be my favorite too.


Laura said...

I love so many of your things, but my very favorite is Old New Baby Blue!

The Joy of Nesting said...

Well I suppose you could be a bit crazy after all you are an artist :) I think you should be thankful that you have the kind of friends that are more then happy to let you "act out" as much as you want....especially when you want to give your art away!! :)

If forced to make a choice today, my favorite heart goes to the "Corazon Madonna" course I did leave a heart for the Asian Key and the Paris Key Rue de Palace Pendent because it always makes me smile when I see it! ;)

Amanda said...

This would be so much easier if I didn't already have so much favorited... :P

I supposed I could go through and just favorite everything ELSE on principle, just to give them a fair chance.

SummersStudio said...

Lynn, it is torture, pure torture to choose favourites in either of your shops. So I think I'll just heart everything. This is a very clever and fun way to do a give away!

LLYYNN - Lynn Davis said...

Hi, ya'll,
Tomorrow is the big day - there's still time to HEART your heart out on the shops. It's been loads of fun for me, and surprising too.

Alice, I was hoping for just a few more ideas about teaching, but if I don't get any more on that post, I'll do that giveaway next week.

This weekend I'm creating some posts sharing goodies that have been given to me. You give, and you have things given. It's a wonderful balance.

Wish I could give all of you something ... more than just my gratitude!
