brainstorming a July GIVEaway

Hiya Luv's!
{{So July will be here before I know it and that means a lot of fun things!}}
{{1}} InDePeNdEnCe dAy!
{{2}} I start my new job, July 6!
{{3}} My 29th birthday, July 20th! 
{{4}} and high on your list-a Hiya Luv GIVEaway! 
I love cupcakes so last year Dave had 30 of them made especially for me! We ate them for a week but wasted many. It was a very sad day when I had to throw out the leftovers. 
SO-help me out. I would love to do a GIVEaway for you featuring an ETSY Shoppe or a handmade shoppe. There are so many shoppes that I love that I can think to contact about a giveaway but I want to hear from YOU too!
 Leave me a comment-what would you love to see in a GIVEaway on Hiya Luv? Even if it is not from an Etsy Shoppe or handmade-let me know. Perhaps I can make it happen.
 I want to hear all ideas! 

Luv & smiles,

Please trust me when I tell you that I am a LOT less smart/talented than you think I am, and that my job is a lot less amazing than it seems.

I have been at this for 3 years now, so it's been quite a journey! It just kind of happened, and when I first started I was AWFUL. I think I am one of the first blog designers though. There were so few of us back then! So in that regard I got pretty lucky. I do work with the sweetest people, and I love that, but ultimately, I think this is the perfect part time or sahm gig.

As far as learning, I really am self taught, so I'd say get elements or PS and play around. It took MONTHS to learn and at least a year to be any good at all. I definitely tell anyone and everyone that asks to find another career only because there are just so many blog designers now, so I cannot imagine someone new coming along and taking off that wasn't already a seasoned pro at graphic design. But that's just my opinion.

I don't know what path to take next. It's scary. Really scary. So afraid of failing.

I hope you're feeling better. I was SO sick. It was horrible. Still stuffy and kind of gross, but MUCH better!

Sorry for rambling!

Oh sheesh, I think you could giveaway just about anything and we'd be ecstatic. That cupcake cake is the most genius thing I've ever seen. I too have a serious love for cupcakes! Happy almost birthday!

Those are really fun cupcakes!

Cassie said...

Mmmm, cupcakes! I could make up a set of Cuppie the Cupcake cards for your giveaway ;D

(your comments always make me smile, Gina. My work space is completely covered in glitter, lol. My dog even had some glitter on her!)

Ashley said...

Oh yay! You're giving us a gift during your birthday month? That is too kind! I retweeted your request on twitter, I hope maybe that helps a little? As for ideas, Etsy designers usually have cute things to give away, or you could always throw in a gift card to Starbucks or Target. When you do your giveaway, be sure to post it on FreeGrechen so more people come by and see it and enter! It really does help :)

A cupcake cake! That is genius. Pure genius.

Whatever you decide for the giveaway will be perfect. I don't really enter giveaways, due to my fear of losing.... it's a conundrum.

Happy upcoming birthday! I'm new to your blog. "HIYALUV" is what drew me in. I saw it on Gussy or The Pleated Poppy (I'm fairly new to blogging and I check these out often)and thought,"How cute!" As for a giveaway for "your" day-sweet! I suggest the above as well as SheyB. Thanks.
