Welcome to Design Day Giveaway!

Today I'm giving away 3 prizes to 3 different winners.

1. $50 credit for branding/design services from Southtown Creative

Jessica of Southtown Creative is donating a $50 credit towards any of her services: header design, buttons, full blog/web design, business cards, etc. !   Here is a sample of some of her work.

You can visit her website here to view the rest of her portfolio, services, tutorials, and reviews.  Having my blog designed was one of the most significant blogging decisions I've made and it has helped me in more ways than I can count; this is such a great win!

2. $25 gift certificate to Puddleduck Paper Co.

The last giveaway that featured Puddleduck Paper was a smashing success, and since then owner/designer Mattie has come out with new products, an entirely new line, and launched a campaign to grow her business with the purchase of a letterpress - busy girl.  (Confession: I had to Google "letterpress machine" because I had no idea what one looked like.)  Here are some of my favorite Puddleduck products:


The images on the bottom are from the new line featuring Mattie's photos from her inspiring trip to Rocky Mountain National Park.  Both of these new prints have special meaning to me - "Make Time" because of this post, and "Live Simply" because of this one.

You can view the rest of her shop here, read her stylish blog here, and read about her gutsy, inspiring campaign here. The winner gets a $25 gift certificate to spend on any Puddleduck product!

3. $25 gift certificate to Honeysuckle Finds.

Here is a peek at some of the treasures in Shelby's shop.

You can visit the rest of her shop here, and read her blog here.  Shelby's blog is one of my favorites; I'd never pick out half of the things she spots in her antiquing and thrifting, but watching her incorporate these items into her home is eye-opening and inspiring.  She'll often post a really great "look" and then link to some items in her shop that would help you pull off a similar one; I've gotten a lot of ideas from Shelby.  (Also, Shelby is a friend of mine and she is going to be welcoming her very first little one - a son! - into her home any day now.  It would be kind of cool if you would drop by her blog and give her some congrats and well wishes.  I mean, if you want to.  You don't get brownie points or anything, but it would be really nice.)

Here's how to enter: 1. Just comment on this post!  This serves as your entry to win any of the 3 prizes.  (There will be three winners.)  See?  No flaming hoops to jump through.

2. If you choose, you can submit one additional entry per item.

*To submit an extra entry for the Southtown Creative credit, like them on Facebook here and leave a separate comment saying that you did so.

If you choose to submit extra entries for all of the items, you will have left a total of 4 comments on the post (which is the maximum).

Cool?  Yes, cool.

Good luck!  I will select the winners randomly at midnight tonight and announce the winners tomorrow morning!  When the comments box prompts you to leave your email address, make sure you enter one that you check regularly so that I can reach you if you win!
