Give Away: Happy Etsy Anniversary to Me!

NOW CLOSED: CONGRATS TO COMMENT #23, 'SMALL GRAPES'.
I bought a new couch cover last week at Ikea. My old one was dark brown and I did like it but there was something defective in the dyes that caused it to bleach out to an orange-like color. Thankfully, Ikea gave me all my dinero back so I bought 2 white covers instead. (That way one can be washed while the other is on.) I’ve always loved white covers and I know they’re a pain to keep clean, hence the two covers. So I quickly made some new pillows to spice it up. I love it!
So……In honor of my 2 year anniversary selling pillows on etsy, I am giving away one 18” pillow cover. Your choice of any of the five pictured here on my couch. Just leave a comment here telling me one thing you like about my shop (stroke my ego) or one thing you wish I would do differently—or both! I’ll pick one lucky commenter using random.org on August 24th (Monday). I’ll notify the winner then and she/he can choose which of these funky designs she’d like. Make sure there is a way for me to contact you—either through your own blog/profile or by leaving your email. Good luck!

Happy Etsy Anniversary! How exciting! I love your pillows and think your photos show off your product very nicely :) I am really liking the Keep Calm one you have in the shop, but I'd take the Zebra Stripes to go in my living room. Thanks for the giveaway!

Tara said...

I just love how fresh everything looks in your shop. Your fabric choices reflect lots of happiness to me. I love the Tangerine and Lemon Pillow...

Happy Anniversary!

I really love the zebra print. In fact I've been on the verge of ordering it...along with the other two pillows you have on your bed (blue/aqua ones). Maybe I'll win this so that I can afford the other two!
Anyway, I just love the fabrics! I feel like a blog stalker, but I just admire your work. I've also loved the food ideas, and sewing ideas (the tiered skirts are a dream for my girls!)
I've also ordered your banner patterns and have smiles to many faces already with my creations! Thank you!

Hi Cynthia! Happy Anniversary!

What do I love about your shop? For starters, my husband loves your work which means I can order your pillows guilt-free. :-) But I also love the quality of your sewing and the way you put patterns together. We've got three on our couch and love them.

Cheers!

ONE thing I love about your shop?! That's impossible to do! Your taste in fabrics is amazing, and you truly are talented. You have a great eye for putting patterns together and choosing fabrics that will pop in people's houses.
I love your crisp, clean, bright photos. Each photo allows the customer to imagine that item in their home!
As far as what you could do better? Are you kidding me? You are my Etsy hero and my sewing coach!
Now...just pick me...and everything will be perfect! I live nearby...can random.org be bribed with brownies? haha!

candy, you know how to find me

Are family members excluded from this giveaway?

I love your pillows so much I refuse to purchase any other kind. Plus my guests always oh and ah over them and I get to haughtily say that they were custom made by my sister-in-law and then they all express their jealousy of my having such talent in the family. And your prices are really a steal. TJ Maxx sells blah pillows for $16.

Anyway, love the white cover. The pillows really do pop off of it.

Debra said...

Your pillows are almost as vibrant as you are! Wouldn't change a thing except . . . are still doing the little bags? Loved those too!

Brittany & Barry said...

Yeah, really...one thing? The prints? The photography? What you do with both? The list goes on and on. You need to have your own magazine or something. I love that flowered pillow. You are the woman!

Caroyln#2 said...

You make the most perfect invisible zippers I have ever seen, yet you make it look effortless. Your shop looks great because there is so much color in it. You always use such awesome fabrics.
It's me Carolyn your sister in law you know how to find me.

Brian and Carly said...

K. I know I already have your pillows, makeup bags, diaper bag (LUCKY ME!) but I'm testing my luck. I LOVE YOUR STUFF!

It's unique, happy, and uplifting. Few things in life tend to end up that way (pessimist??? maybe) but the few things that are, I totally embrace.

( I`ve made pillows and curtains out of the Ikea flower fabric a while ago and still love the bright colors Thank you for offering the giveaway. :)

Happy Anniversary!! You can never go wrong with a little animal print!! I love the yellow on your walls...so bright and cheery and the colors of the pillows against the white cover make it even more inviting!

Cassie said...

Wow - you have an amazing talent for choosing patterns and colors! I love every one of your pillows! I feel like I need to buy more couches so I can get MORE PILLOWS! Everything looks to be superior quality - awesome photos too :o)

happy anniversary!

nicole said...

You have such fun taste Cynthia-and I hope to get some soon. I guess I need to call you with measurements.. I've been thinking about getting a banner or two too. I've referred a couple people to your site who have recently gotten new homes.I do miss the bags!

Emily said...

Ilene sent me to your blog and I'm so glad! I need new pillows and I never thought to look on Etsy. ADORABLE! The patterns are super cute and so original, I just love them.

I'll definitely be back to your shop soon! I have my eye on the green poppies pillow.

Christi said...

I saw yours on Ilene's blog as well. I love them!!! You patterns are great and I like how unique the choices you have are. I love them all! Out of the ones on your couch my fave would be limeade or floral!

Paige said...

Saw you on Ilene's blog and your pillows are unbelieveably gorgeous! I need to repillow my two sofas with great pillows. Do you have 2 of the red 16 wildflower ones? I only like two pillows on a sofa as it's less to pick up off the floor. Help me.

Cynthia,

You are AMAZING!!! I love your shop and keep wanting to get something. Just havent. But you have a talent like no other. I love looking at your blog and see what you have done and seeing your kids grow up. I cant believe how big they are.

Lauren in GA said...

You do great work! I love those pillows!

I think Ilene should be excluded from participating since she is family.

Okay...I'm sorry to be such a cutthroat, Ilene...I was blinded by the beauty of the amazing pillows.

Lizzy said...

I heard about your pillows through Ilene. Very, very cute! You have a great eye for colors and patterns! Love them.

Restless Mama said...

I just found your shop by looking at Etsy's front page this morning and instantly fell in love with your fabric birthday banners - I actually may buy one for my son's 1st birthday - such a great idea to be able to reuse chic birthday banners.
I'm also a little obsessed with your pillows - if I had the money I'd buy them all and make a room for just pillows.

Kirsten and Jonathan said...

Love you pillows, I am currently redoing my bedroom in reds and oranges and your pillows are just what I need to spice it up. Happy Anniversary.

smallgrapes said...

Just discovered your shop today and I love it. I would create an additional section for your patterns, though. Lovely, lovely stuff!

April said...
