Etsy Grand Opening and 2 give aways


Oh Oh Oh I am so excited and a bit nervous too!
After much thought and tossing ideas around I have done it....
I am haveing my grand opening starting today for my etsy shop!
It's called....


To celebrate my grand opening I am offering every one whom makes a purchase before November 23rd a chance to win a give away!
I am not sure what it will be just yet... but with each item you purchase your name will go into the hat! {purchase 3 items you get 3 chances to win} etc!
That's the first give away....

The second give away goes like this!
Since I am a new shop and need all the advertiseing I can get!
Leave a comment on this post you will be entered into the second give away... and....
if you post about my Cherry Heart Boutique with the link on your blog,
I will enter your name again!
Be sure to leave me the link to your post!
I am counting on you gals to help spread the word!

Ok now go visit my Cherry Heart Boutique..
shop.... then come back and tell me what you think!

Warm Hugz, Dolly

{big hugz to Jenny and everyone else for the encourageing me to take this leap}

Hello Dolly! I found you from "Nature Girl" and I couldn't resist the name Dolly. My blog is Dolly Dilettante! Anyway, the repairman who came to my house thought that was my name and that I was French! It's not my name, LOL. I am toying with Etsy now myself and haven't taken the leap. I need a friend like your friend! Will stay tuned. Best wishes

Hi Dolly! Congratulations on the opening of your OH SO CUTE shop!! Love your little cuties!! I'll be adding you to my blog list under "Cottage Inspirations" and I'll mention your contest and shop in a post too - I'm all about blog-love and sharing inspiration!

Speaking of sharing inspiration, I will be hosting a free Christmas Gift Guide on my blog featuring artisans who sell their wares online and I would love to include a link to your beautiful work with your permission. I couldn't find an email address for you to mail you the information, so this was the only way I knew to let you know about it and introduce myself. If you'd like to know more, you can just drop me a line at bschultea@yahoo.com or leave a comment at my place - like I said, it's free, and I just want
to see a nice quality list of artisans - your link would certainly be a welcome addition!! I'm planning to go live with the guide on Thursday Nov 15th if not a bit before...

I hope to hear from you!!

Blessings,
Becky Schultea
