a giveaway. a giveaway! late june 2013

 lovinganvil (c) 2013


i am so very passionate about creating adornment, and so very honored by the support and appreciation for my work!  the thank yous and notes and email and and and.  and it’s awesome because i truly only make what i absolutely love myself and i OBSESS over every detail and nuance and it’s amazing to step out of ones head once in a while and realize that other folks are digging it, too.  amazing.

SO on that note!  let’s do a SUMMER O GIVEAWAYS lovinganvil style!  (with some el chicharron thrown in for good measure – keep your eyes peeled)

rules!  rules!  should i use bullet points for this?  hmm.  ok, sure.

  • there will be at least five different giveaways over the course of the summer.  prolly more.  but i have five planned right now.
  • enter via facebook, twitter and instagram.  one entry per social media per giveaway.  in other words, you can enter three times for each giveaway, but only once per social media.
  • FACEBOOK.  follow or like us at facebook.com/lovinganvil .  i’ll post a photo of the giveaway item.  to enter, share and like the photo/post
  • INSTAGRAM. follow or like us @lovinganvil .  for each giveaway i’ll post a unique #tag and instructions for a photo to post with the #tag.  to enter, upload and tag your photo!
  • TWITTER follow or like us at @lovinganvil .  i’ll tweet a photo and tag.  to enter, retweet the post.
  • entries will only count if you’ve followed/liked/whatever lovinganvil
  • the final giveaway will be the farrah ring grandprize and all previous entries will count towards your chances!  so if you’ve entered three times per each giveaway, you’ll have more opportunities!  the grandprize drawing will happen august 30, 2013 at 7pm eastern.  unless some weird life thing requires it to happen a little before or a little after.  so you know.

oh i’m PSYCHED!  wait, also –

  • postage is covered for domestic (u.s.) mail, with tracking.  insurance is not included.  international folks are more than welcome to enter but will be responsible for postage and fees – i’ll send a paypal invoice for those situations.
  • there was something else i was going to say but i forget.
  • i guess it was something vaguely legal like, we are not responsible for any losses or damage or any other issues that arise – this is intended to be a good time so… you know.  play nice.

my loves!

the ocean water has been AMAZING. !! for maine, it’s been so lovely warm – every day we could we’ve played hooky from both our shop, our space, all of our responsibilities and taken the family to the beach. our little pipsqueek deserves it! we do, too! we all work so hard and the beach days are so limited. in fact…right now. i’m sitting at our kitchen table with a knit cap on. and a jacket. and gil’s boxer shorts. but still. there’s been a chill in the air the past couple of days. so already these photos have a feeling of nostalgia to them. it happened so fast! miss cv has also spent a ton of time in our big blue koozie pool in the back yard and TOTALLY learned how to swim this summer! i’m so proud of her! and a bit sad that’s over now, too. oh well. OH WELL. fall will be fun. just wish summer was a tiny bit longer.

i sat down to write about work stuff. but i’ll save that for later.
