Time for a Giveaway...


Ever since I started this blog it's been on my to do list to set up a mailing list subscription option so that I can keep my followers up to date with what's going on. Well, three years later (where did that go...?) I've finally got around to it and there is now a sign up box in the side bar just beneath my profile.

My plan is to use this very sparingly to give people who subscribe advance notice of shop updates, sales and any special events that I might be taking part in. This probably won't amount to more than once a month with an occasional extra and subscribers can opt out at any time. The problem now of course is that I don't have contact details for any of those lovely people who have begun following my blog in those three years so I have nobody to send my updates to...isn't that sad.

So I need a little help in spreading the word and since you're all so good at that I think a giveaway is order. The giveaway prize is £30 GBP and free shipping to spend in either of my shops THEA Elements and THEA Jewellery and there will also be a couple of surprise prizes as well.

You can enter the draw by subscribing to the mailing list (the box in the side bar of this blog) and/or sharing this post in your social media networks. Simply leave a comment below letting me know how you have subscribed/shared and I will randomly select the winners on Sunday June 1st, publish the names here and notify them by  email.

I'm also planning to do some random giveaways to subscribers from time to time so thank you for helping me get this off the ground and good luck!

Lesley
