I’ve been pretty lucky in my on-line travels.
Here are some things that I’ve won:
Fig & Thyme Jam from the lovely and talented, Ashley English of Small Measure.
Kona Coffee and Chocolate-covered macadamia nuts in a blog hop from Joscie, who lives in Honolulu.
Clip sheets from Whitney English for simply retweeting about them (would have done that anyway!) And now they come with photos…
A beautiful set of letterpress notecards made by Delphine Press on Neenah Paper were sent to me just for joining in on a conversation with Delphine’s Founder and Designer, Erika Firm, led by Jamie Saunders from Neenah (read the conversation here.)
My latest lucky break was the giveaway on Melanie’s blog, Paper Mango. She had written about ZENmamaGranola in her Sustainability series and decided to do a giveaway. Guess who won? Woo-hoo! The tagline for Christy’s granola is Best. Granola. Ever! And yup, it is.
I worry when there is something sweet in our house that I find irresistible. I tend to commit “snarfing”, which is a crime against oneself and not pretty. One of the great things about this granola is how satisfying it is. I was able to eat a reasonable amount and feel totally sated. 90% of the ingredients are organic and all the packaging is green. I recommend getting some here today!
I don’t think I spend time looking for these opportunities. I’m just here, trying to design and sell paper goods, and I see something that makes me think, “I might like that…” This process has introduced me to some great women and the things they design and make everyday. And I like that quite a bit.
