Wednesday Wellspring: The Mother of all Giveaways

Note: To enter, leave your comments on each giveaway post - not on this post!

Like a geyser of good fortune, the well is shooting forth with the mother of all giveaways. The amazing artisans of RNEST are gearing up for the RNEST Fest – a sale we’ve organized here in Rochester for December 13th (we’ll let you know more about that over the next few weeks). We decided what better way to get ready for the mother of all sales then with the mother of all giveaways! Over the next seven weeks – that’s right SEVEN weeks – we’ll be giving away one prize from six separate artists and a seventh grand prize with a fabulous something from each of us!

The first giveaway starts this Sunday, October 25th, but I’m giving you a special heads up so you are primed and ready! Each giveaway starts on a Sunday and you have until the following Friday at midnight to enter. The winner will be selected by the random number generator on Saturday. . . and then we’ll start again . . .and again – times SEVEN!

Note: To enter, leave your comments on each giveaway post - not on this post!

Here’s how you can enter:

You get one entry for doing each of the following things – and for each task, leave a separate comment letting us know you did it:

  1. Go to Etsy and heart the shop of the week (Of course if the shop of the week is already a favorite, just leave us a comment letting us know.)
  2. Look around the featured shop and let us know what your favorite item is.
  3. Become a follower of this blog.
  4. If the shop/artist of the week has a blog, become a follower of that blog – we’ll let you know week by week who has a blog and who doesn’t.
  5. Blog or tweet about each giveaway – leave the link in your comment and please make sure it’s a blog post, not a link on your sidebar.
  6. Follow the featured artist on Twitter - we’ll let you know week by week who tweets and who doesn’t.
  7. Become a fan of RNEST on Facebook.

So, you have 7 chances to enter and 7 weeks to play. Oh, boy, this is going to be fun! By the way, Buenahelena might sell Ouija boards, but none of us is psychic, so don’t forget to leave your email address in your comment so we know how to reach you if you win!

Now, for a preview of the shops that are participating:
October 25-31: Happy Olive Designs
November 1-7: The Quilted House
November 8-14: Jackbear Stamps
November 15-21: Just Ice Jewelry
