I entered a giveaway on Sometimes Sweet last month. I think giveaways are one of those things that you enter but never think you're actually going to win, but guess who won! Meeeeee! I got this lovely package which was shipped all the way from the US. And what was inside? A set of wrapped pens from this wonderful etsy shop. It's such an easy but original concept that from the second I saw them I fell in love. Obviously being a total book geek I had to have 'The Hunger Games' set, and I also got to choose pens. (you had a choice of pencils or pens) Whoop Whoop! They are so pretty and I love them.
Please go check out their etsy shop called bouncing ball creations. I had it saved in my favourite as 'ah-mazing pencils' before I won. haha. The communication with the founder was fantastic and I was even given the option to pick a specific chapter or page I particularly wanted, which I thought gave such a personal touch. (Obviously being super indecisive I eventually left this in their capable hands.) I do think that good communication creates a returning customer. Communication is the key.
This is actually the second giveaway I've won since starting blogging in March. The first one I won was my wedding fragrance, Lola, from FleurDeForce's giveaway. I blogged all about it here. It's was one of those things that I really couldn't afford so I was so grateful when I won. I only ever enter giveaways that I really want to win because I'd feel awful if I won but didn't really want the prize.
I'm going to play with my new pens now.
