A GIVEAWAY! for Easter - Closed thank you (2010)

Easter isn't far away is it? I have been saving some special fabrics for it for ages. As usual I am behind in everything so I haven't managed to sell them. SO .... I think we will have an Easter giveaway!!

Up for grabs is this pretty mini-tote bag. Look closely and you will see it's a lovely spring yellow and is printed with little chicks. It's adorable and will be perfect for toting your Easter shopping in.

I made two of these bags so if you can't wait to win you may still purchase one in my store for just $20.00.

♥ I also have some cute, oh so cute tiny gift bags made from the delectable chick fabric that Karen of Washimatta sent me last year. I have four to give away. I'll try and get a picture tomorrow.

There are a few ways to enter:

1. Visit my shop, Mee a Bee and pick a favourite. Leave a comment about it here on the blog. This helps me learn what wonderful people like you love about my shop, it's a kind of market research. It's very helpful, so thank you.

2. If you're not already a fan of Mee a Bee on Facebook please consider joining and inviting your friends to become fans as well. This is also helpful since I have limited means for advertising I rely on word of mouth recommendations from lovely people like you, thank you.

Leaving a comment on the Mee a Bee Facebook page gains you an entry. Again let me know your favourite or better yet, copy and paste a link to it so the photo shows up on the page for everyone to see.

3. Lastly, if you're a blogger would you consider adding my little button to your page?   Again, it's all an effort to get my work in front of as many people as possible. I may drown in fabric if I don't manage to send some of it off to the lovely little people of the world.

If you are on Blogger: click Customise from the top right. Then above the side margin click Add a Gadget. From the list pick HTML/Java Script.  Paste in the following code and save:

Don't forget to save changes. Then come back and let me know you've done it. Thank you so much!

Three ways to enter, enter up to three times! The winners will be picked at random on Monday 21st March, 2010. Make sure I have a way of contacting you since I will want to mail out the prizes straight away in order to arrive in time!

  7. Hi Jacqui,

    Reading your blog is like a treat for me at the end of my day. I was so excited about your giveaway. I absolutely love the mee a bee bags I got for my daughter. The apples and green polka dots messenger is my favorite. We hang it on an adorable mini apple coat hook to display it when not in use. Just love it.

    On to business: my favorite bag in your store today is the pink dotty apples bag. It's precious!

    Thanks for the chance! Hope all is well with you. monica
