Ginger Snap Crafts: hello. goodbye. {announcement & giveaway}

hello. goodbye. {announcement & giveaway}

Remember yesterday I told you about what I learned at Bloggy Boot Camp?
One of those things was having a plan & purpose for your blog & business.
Where do I want to be in 5 years?  What do I want to be doing?
This has been on my mind a lot lately.  As my blog has grown I’ve been given many amazing opportunities.  Buuut I have to realize that I can’t do everything.
Blogging/crafting takes a lot of my time.  Don’t get me wrong I enjoy it A LOT!
Almost too much! ha! For the past year & a half {in addition to the blog}
I’ve also been running an Etsy shop as well.  I have decided to close my shop.
I so appreciate all the support & my awesome customers. Thank you!

hello vinyl

You might remember my hello door vinyl.  Well, in August it went viral on Pinterest.
Why can’t something on my blog do that?? ha!  Anyways, I was overwhelmed with orders.
After about two weeks of craziness I closed down my shop for the rest of August.
During that time is when I decided I couldn’t run both the blog & the shop & get anything done around the house!  Buuut I didn’t want to leave without finding someone who could fill the orders.  {I’m still getting emails every day for the hello vinyl.  It’s crazy!}

So enter my good friend, Robyn of Create it. Go!,
Robyn is now carrying the hello vinyl in her shop!
So head over there if you’d like to purchase one.

Robyn also has adorable handmade cards,

nativities,

and vinyl quotes.

She’s also adding cute stuff all. the. time.
{Robyn also has a blog & facebook page.}

I wouldn’t say goodbye without a little giveaway!!!
The two most popular items from my shop were
the hello door vinyl & my fancy rectangle chalkboard labels. 
So the winner of this giveaway will receive one hello door vinyl
in cream & 9 fancy rectangle chalkboard labels. Yay!
