the art of the giveaway

StudioMME Giveaway

i've been an admirer of Megan Eckman's work for a while so I was thrilled to open the mail box yesterday to find a package awaiting me (always exciting really) with the Studio M.M.E. label on giveaway prize arrived! i've never won an etsy/blog giveaway so i was pretty excited. this beautifully rendered little print will be going to live in my husband's new office at work since it fits his quirky/witty/fantastical/slightly dark personal aesthetic just perfectly!

as long as we're on the subject of giveaways, here is one over at the blog windshield diaries with a seriously fabulous prize that is open until tomorrow. seriously fabulous!

I'm still pondering my own giveaway that i want to hold once i get back from a trip i'm taking to Michigan at the end of this month. I found some great advice in the etsy forums and i think i might try to incorporate some of it. What have you done in setting up your giveaways that you feel made it a success?

Congrats on winning! I've only won once before, but it was a set of about 12 fat quarters from a new line that was just coming out. Too bad I wasn't a big fan of that collection....

But for the most part I always take the time to enter giveaways. However I really hate it when they include ways to get extra entries - twitter, facebook, following, blogging, etc. There's no way I'm going to take the time to do all of that!

I'm glad you liked it! It's one of my favorite prints. The geese always seem to make me laugh.
