my etsy order inbox is finally CLEAR! i just shipped out my last 3 orders. it feels AMAZING.
to not have anything hanging over my head, worried that i am disappointing customers with my long turnaround time is wonderful. i actually had to put my shop on vacation mode because i literally could not do my half marathon training (especially during the "most miles in 31 days" contest...which i won, with 92.3!), and take any new orders without quitting my day job.
the problem was that i got SIX orders during the week i was on vacation, and getting them all done when i got back as new orders also kept rolling in from etsy and friends, was overwhelming. now that i am on the slow and steady official training program (aka NOT running every night) and have no backlog of old orders, i feel good about opening her up again.
so in honor of being all caught up, and in anticipation having an open shop again, i am doing a giveaway.
to enter you must:
1. be a follower of this here blog. (click the blue button under my miles graph in the right sidebar)
2. come up with a caption for this photo and leave it in the comments of this post (or you can leave just a plain comment...see below)
so what do you win?
i am going to pick 2 winners. i will use random.org to select a commenter at random and then i will also pick the writer of my favorite caption as the second winner. so you don't have to be clever, you just have to show up. but being extra wit-tay helps your chances!
each winner will get $15 to spend on anything in the putapuredukes etsy shop. you can use it toward something for yourself, a friend or even your future babies! you could even use it towards something i dont have in my shop right now but you know i can make (nursing apron, one of layla's dresses, ruffle bloomers, etc). or you can give the $15 credit to someone else.
i will cut the comments off tuesday night and then announce the winner on wednesday.
my dad typically dominates the caption contests (see here and here), but i feel like he doesnt need any onesies or boppy covers, so dont let him win this one, guys!
if you've been here for awhile, you'll remember i was doing a giveaway for every 5 new followers up until we got to 100. well, this is technically the giveaway for 100 followers (whoops, a little behind), so i am caught up on these now too!
