A SALE and a GIVEAWAY!! Woo Hoo!!


It's my birthday (Monday, Sept 7th - and believe it or not, I was actually born on labor day - seriously), and my 1 year blog anniversary! And anyone who knows me, knows I tend to get a little carried away around my birthday. ;o) So here goes ...


First, my BIRTHDAY SALE!!

From Friday, September 4th at 12:01am to Monday, September 7th at 12:00 midnight, I am having a Birthday SALE in both my Etsy shops, Zaftig Delights and Knitzy Blonde. All buyers receive 10% off everything, even the clearance section. And if you purchase from both shops I will combine shipping for all your items. If you have any questions, you can send me a message (convo) thru either of my Etsy shops. :o)

2nd, my 1 year blog anniversary GIVEAWAY!!

What am I giving away? If you happen to win this giveaway, you win (your choice of) one of my adorable "Hearts" large wristlet pouches as seen here. They are perfect as a make-up or cosmetics bag, a gadget bag (Nintendo DS) or make an adorable small wristlet purse! They have a flat bottom, and are made with 100% cotton fabric, interfaced for sturdiness and durability and have fabulous metal zipper with a vintage lucite heart bead attached to the zipper pull. The wrist strap matches the lining fabric, which also compliments the outside "Hearts" fabric. They measure 8" across the bottom, 7" across the top, 6" tall, and 2" deep at the bottom. You can choose the "cool" colors pouch (mostly pinks and blues), or the "warm" colors pouch (mostly yellows and greens).
How do you enter to win? You can have multiple entries, but each entry must be in a separate comment here. You must also leave your email address or Etsy Shop info with every entry, so I can reach you if you are the winner! If you do not leave your contact info, how will I find you if you win? :o) Here are the ways to enter:

1. First entry is mandatory: Visit the Etsy shops of Knitzy Blonde, and Zaftig Delights and tell me in a comment here what is your favorite item from each shop!

You can choose any or all of the following for extra entries for this giveaway:

2. For a second entry, leave me a comment here as to which pouch you would choose if you win. Either the "cool" colors Hearts, or the "warm" colors Hearts.

3. For a third entry: Follow my blog - and let me know in a comment here. (If you are already a follower - just let me know - it counts!)

4. For a fourth entry: Follow
me on Twitter
and Tweet the following about this giveaway. "Fabulous Hearts Pouch giveaway by KnitzyBlonde @ZaftigDelights - http://zaftigdelights.blogspot.com"

5. For a fifth entry: Become a Facebook Fan of ZaftigDelights~KnitzyBlonde!

7. For a 7th entry, grab my blog button and add it to your blog or blog roll. Leave a link please to your blog.

8,9 & 10. For 3 extra entries, purchase something from either of my Etsy shops during the Birthday Sale, and you will get 3 extra entries. Leave me a comment with the transaction number here.

And there you go. 10 chances to win one of these fabulous Hearts Wristlet Pouches. The winner will be chosen by Random.org from the verified entrants who have commented here on this blog.

The Giveaway starts at 12:01am (pacific time) Thursday, September 3rd, and ends at 11:59pm on Tuesday, September 8th.

I'll be back here next Wednesday, September 9th to blog about the winner!

Spread the word!!

Sandie,
Happy Birthday! In your Zaftig shop I love all of the vintage earrings and I cannot possibly choose just one pair.
At knitzy, I love the asian pouch with the shell embellishment. I am a sucker for asian prints and the fact that you put a piece of your beach into that item makes it really special.
I am your newest follower too!
