It's My Birthday! Time for a Giveaway...
Hey guys! Today is my 22nd birthday. It's been a wild year! I already can't believe how much we have accomplished in nine short months, but it's been an amazing time of change and growth. So thankful! Birthdays aren't really that important to me as far as gifts and celebrations go. We are a pretty relaxed family when it comes holidays and yearly revolutions around the sun, which is great! When you're trying to be more sustainable and acquire less things, celebrating with food and hugs and handmade gifts is perfect. I love that. Lately, I have also really been loving researching seasonal holidays, like equinoxes and other celebrations that are traditionally celebrated in Scotland. It's interesting to me! Spending time celebrating without consumerism is pretty rad. My dad did take me out on Saturday, however, and surprised me by letting me pick out a beehive and beekeeping supplies for our upcoming spring season in 2018! That was so awesome. I am pumped!!!
This is a short post today, but I just wanted to share that for my birthday, I am hosting a little giveaway over on Instagram. Over the past two years, we've been really working our business on Instagram, and we did a lot of giveaways in 2016. It was fun! But we definitely backed off this year because they're time consuming, cost money, and also can bring in a false following if you are looking to grow your brand. You know? Either way, doing less giveaways has been really fun because when we do have them we get to share things with you that we really hope you'll enjoy, give back to our amazing followers, and basically give you a big, old "THANKS" for being here, reading us, and supporting our brand. I want to give back to you on my birthday!
Today and through tomorrow, we are offering 22% off our Beginner's Botanical Embroidery Course! That course is my baby, and I have loved creating it and sharing it with you. I am so excited to continue to build and work on more courses for next year; if you haven't visited our courses page in a while, I just shared that next spring I will be releasing a completely FREE Garden Start Up Course! Yeah!!!! How fun is that? It will detail everything you need to know about starting up a backyard garden just like ours including costs, garden layouts, vegetable charts, planting calendars, greenhouse plans (eek!), and more. Basically what we've covered here on the blog, plus more, and all compiled into one convenient place.
Use Code BIRTHDAY22 at checkout!
Also, on Instagram today (my accounts @kayhaupt and @underatinroof), we are giving away TWO Beginner's Botanical Embroidery Courses for free! Three winners will be able to take the course free of charge. It's going to be awesome. Make sure to head over to our IG account to see how to enter. I hope you enjoy it! Now, I am off to eat some cake or pie... not sure which will win yet. And hopefully I'll be sharing some photos and a recipe later this week. Love to you all! (:
P.S. Here's a sneak peak at October's Embroidery Club design! How cute is this little bird?! We aren't dropping October's kit until the first of the month - so definitely check back here for updates on that release or subscribe to our Embroidery Club Newsletter to be notified FIRST.
