Wreaths and wall hangings using dried flowers and distinctive materials to create unique and unusual floral home decor

Help me make my first giveaway a success!  I'd like to reach over 1000 fans on my facebook page and get some views on my newly launched Angelsneverlastings Webpage. (I won the web page setup in a giveaway from Mary of SEO Web Design) I'd also love to bless someone with one of my beautiful unique floral wall hangings.  I was having a problem deciding what to giveaway.  I mean how do I know what would go in your home or what you would like.   My items are such that depending on your home decor - you might prefer one color scheme over another,  therefore, rather than my choosing a item to give --I'LL LET THE WINNER CHOOSE the item of their choice from either my Etsy Shop or my Artfire shop.  Entries are limited to those within the US as dried flowers are problematic to deliver internationally.

Winner will be chosen on 2/14.  Entries must be posted by midnight on  2/11/11.

HOW DO YOU ENTER?  You can have up to five entries - one entry for each of the following.  Please leave a separate comment for each one and include a e-mail address so I can notify you if you win.  I will be carefully keeping track and numbering each comment and using to choose the winner.

1.  Visit my web page at and click on my Etsy shop or my Artfire shop and choose a favorite item or one that you would like to win.  Come back, comment and post a link to that item.  Upon winning, if that item is still available, you can either choose that item or another.

2.  Follow this blog and leave a separate comment stating that you are a follower. (if you are already a follower post a comment stating that you are already a follower)

3.  Tweet about the giveaway and comment here with link to your tweet.

Planning a giveaway

Wall Topiary in shades of pink and silver
I am planning to have my first giveaway. I have been thinking about this to celebrate and promote my web page which was launched recently.   My first problem though is that I can't decide what to offer in my giveaway.  I want to offer something that is from my best work.  Here are pictures of a few of my items which I could offer for my giveaway.  I do believe when you give something you should give your best not just something you can't seem to sell and have had too long.  I could offer one of these pieces or even offer a choice.  If you have a moment kindly visit my Etsy shop at Angels n Everlastings and tell me what you would like to receive if you were to win my giveaway.  If you have hosted a successful giveaway -- I would love to hear about your experience.  I would appreciate any comments or advice.

Promotional Frenzy

Tanzanite Crystal Drop Earrings by galla15 on Etsy

Reflecting on the past year, it was a year of joining.  I Joined Facebook along with creating a Angels n Everlastings Fan Page for my business.  I spent oodles of time working the "link love" Facebook system for gaining "likers" for my fan page.  I got plenty of likers and liked plenty of pages but I can't say it has helped with sales.   I joined all sorts of Facebook groups that would help promote my business.  Most of those I've lost contact with except for an occasional e-mail from them.  Some I should reconnect with.  I joined Twitter and followed a bunch of people who followed me back. I joined the Etsy CAST team which now has over 1000 members. I also joined the CAPS team which concentrates on member promoting.   I started my Angels n Everlastings Artfire Shop in October which needs some love and attention.  I started this blog and recently launched my web page  Then recently for promotion, Stumbleupon, Kaboodle and who knows what else.  All this joining was productive but I can't say that I really have used all these connections effectively.  Recently I came across the Promotional Frenzy Etsy Thread and got involved with their networking.  This is a group which encourages promotion with activities on certain days - for instance,  Monday they host a BNR treasury, Tuesday everyone chooses one item to be promoted, Wednesday is the day everyone is encouraged to blog, Thursday everyone tries to list a new item, Friday is the day to create a Promo Frenzy member treasury and on Saturdays they choose one member for a "solo Frenzy.  Sunday is a day of rest!  I can't do it all but I find this schedule very helpful to encourage me to actively use my blog or to create a weekly treasury.  The leaders on this group really seem to know how to promote and I've learned a lot in the short time I have been involved with them.  For more information on the Promotional Frenzy Thread visit  So this year, I hope to reflect on the connections I have made and try to either use it or lose it.  I can't maintain all the connections I have made but I need to decide which ones to keep and which ones aren't helpful to creating sales or getting noticed.  I think the Promotional Frenzy group will be one of the keepers along with the Etsy CAST team and CAPS team and I encourage you to check them out.  Here are a few creations from the Promotional Frenzy group:
