Giveaway Winners: Zippers Like Wow

Thanks so much for everyone who stopped by my blog during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I never expected such an amazing response! I was absolutely shocked to have just over 700 entries from happy folks looking to win zippers! I'm glad I was able to offer a giveaway that people were excited to win. I suspected it would be good, since many people were giving away fabric, I knew zippers would be a nice compliment. I found out about the SMS giveaway on the very last day to email to sign up. I've always been of the school of thought that it's way more fun to give than to receive, so I am thrilled to be a part of it.

In case you didn't know, I didn't have very many followers before this giveaway. {Full disclosure: I had 38!} I've been blogging for only a few months here. I thought that maybe I'd reach 100, if I was lucky, and was completely amazed to end up with a final total of 266. I know that someone of you might decide to "unfollow" me and stop reading once this giveaway is over, and I completely understand if you do. We live in an information-overloaded world, and if you don't enjoy my blog, I get it if you don't want to waste your time. No worries. I figure that if only a handful of you become regular visitors and readers, I'll be absolutely thrilled.

Before you go, I hope you'll take some time after the madness of SMS Giveaway Day to look around at your leisure. Crafty Moira is my place on the website to discuss my growing artistic practice, including the growth of my small crafty business, Literary Tease. I have an ongoing series called Etsy Tips & Tricks where I offer suggestions and advice to people interesting in selling more on Etsy. I post pictures of projects I'm working on, links to tutorials I want to try (plus some of my own), and interviews with artists I admire. When I'm not crafting, which is, like, never, I am likely teaching arts-based jewelry classes to middle school kids (Best. Job. Ever.) I also love to cook, and I share a lot of my recipes here. I hope you'll come back to visit!

One last thing before I announce the winners of the Zippers Like Wow giveaway: I started moving into my new apartment in Providence, Rhode Island last night. Hurray! The apartment is right across the street from my friend Jen, which is so awesome. I completely forgot to take pictures, but luckily, Jen snapped a few:
Stairway up to my 2nd floor apartment

The huge living room which will be our dual studio.
Now for the winners! As you might recalled, I promised extra zippers based on how many followers I ended up with -- I never expected to have that many... but I did prepare packages of zippers, just in case. Since I reached over 200 followers (WOW!), I am giving out FOUR boxes* of zippers, one each to these lucky winners:

I'm going to send out emails just as soon as I've got a cup of coffee. Ladies, please email me with your addresses so I can send out your magical packages of zipper love right away. The four winners will have three days to get back to me, and if by some reason they don't, I'll draw for replacement winners as needed on Monday.

Feeling sad that you didn't win?

Just for you, I have a special offer running in my etsy shop, Literary Tease. When you use the coupon code: ZIPPYFABULOUS you will get 15% off your total purchase PLUS I will send you five zippers with your order just for stopping by my blog. (Coupon expires June 30.) If you use the coupon, just leave me a message telling me your favorite color(s) for zippers. I can't promise you'll get exactly that color, but I will do my best! (I have everything but black).

the giveaway's not over yet!

I am also going to do a separate drawing for ten packs of ten assorted zippers a little bit later today or early tomorrow. I hope you'll forgive me for not doing it right away, but I need to email the winners then start packing! More soon! Thanks again for stopping by!

*Okay, box will probably be a flat-rate envelope stuffed with zippers for the US folks. International winners will still get a box. :)
