1000 Facebook Likers giveaway!


It's hard to believe that my little business has over 1000 likers. How did that happen?

Well, it certainly didn't happen overnight. While Facebook is an exponential marketing tool, it doesn't work without some serious input. My husband can attest to the fact that I'm on it a lot: sometimes just browsing, but more often than not, networking. Visiting other pages and liking them so that their 100, 500, 2000 fans are exposed to my products. What's that saying: 'it's a hard job but someone has to do it'! At the end of the day, the more sites you introduce your products to, the more fans will eventually come your way.

And they have! An enormous 'thank you' to all of my likers, and followers, and to everyone who has posted a 'shout out' for me over the past 18 months -- especially to those who posted regular, full-of-praise, shout outs. You know who you are. I am indebted to you all.

As an indication of my gratitude, I'm giving away Kitchen Owl #339 'Music maker' (his eyes include tambourine jingles) to one of my regular visitors. To be in it you just need to say that you'd like it by posting a comment at the bottom of this post.

This year is flying by so fast I'm not sure how many of the new ideas I'd like to try will be possible but please keep your eyes out for some diversifying in the latter half of this year. Inspiration abounds and I'm surrounded by it through this online community. Thanks.

Please continue to support my fledgling business -- it's much appreciated!

Your humble Owl lady. ;o)

Small print:
If for any reason you have difficulty posting here, I'll accept a comment below my FB link to this blog post as an entry. Overseas fans shall not be excluded, but I beg for your patience as shipping overseas would be per sea mail. i.e. painfully SLOW.

I found you on Facebook a long time ago, and I am very glad I did. I love owls and think your use of old materials to make something quirky and fun is just wonderful! It is always a treat to see your latest creations so keep them coming! I would love to give a home to your owl as I think he is super!
Here's hoping to hear from you,
Ruthie xx

Congratulations on such a huge milestone, 1000 fans is no small feat!
My Aunt is a huge Owl collector but if I was lucky enough to win, I'd have to keep that musical creation for myself!
