I wanted to let you all know about a really cool contest going on now through the month on March. It's called The Happily Handmade Giveaway and I encourage you to check it out. There are a lot of really cool indie designers out there making really great unique stuff: jewelry, clothing, bags, paper products, bath products, etc. Every season a bunch of them get together and offer a contest to promote indie businesses. All you have to do to enter is go to a participating sponsor and follow the instructions for entry. This usually only requires you to sign up for a newsletter. No purchase necessary! It's as simple as that. You could win some really great prizes and find some neat products along the way. For more information, check out: http://www.happilyhandmadegiveaway.com.
Please tell anyone you think would be interested about this contest. I think it's a wonderful event that more people should be aware of.
