{Life Made Lovely-Monday}

Happy Monday Sew Indy readers! I had some pretty amazing giveaways last week and I would like to announce the winners and make some lucky followers Monday a little more Lovely!! I would also like to give you a few tips if you would like to host your own giveaway!

First the tips just to keep you in suspense a little longer! Ha evil I know {well not really, I guess you could just scroll down...if you really wanted to see who the winners were!}

1.Do not host your giveaway during the QBM or any other important blogging/handmade event...I really feel like readership was down last week, and my conclusion was lots of followers were getting ready for QBM, stockpiling, and scheduling their blog posts. One of our sponsors April from Marine Parents had a booth there it looked so awesome...well all the booths looked pretty amazing! I found this picture on Snap the Conference website...

2. Make sure you utilize all social networking tools available to you, the more common ones like Twitter, Facebook, and Blogger. And then some uncommon ones like Instagram, Pinterest, and Flickr.

3. I also entered my giveaways into an online contest database, Simply Stacie ...not sure if that helped but I gave it a whirl!

Now for the giveaway winners!! Drum roll please...

The winner of the Marine Parents very cherry clutch was SerayaSunshine, and the winner of the Bibeezbaby patchwork clutch was Laurie-Beth, and our last giveaway from A Life Unrehearsed for two bloom rings is still open until midnight tonight! So enter here if you haven't already!

Laurie-Beth and SerayaSunshine if you could send me an email that would be great!!


  1. I just have to say I was so impressed by all the pictures from the QBM! I was really inspired!

  2. Thank you for your advice! I'm still new to the giveaway thing and this made me go ahead and post to pinterest and flickr... i would have never thought of that on my own! smart!
