"Oooops" Giveaway



So, I found this BEAUTIFUL ribbon, bought it, sewed it up and turned it into a BookWorm. Problem is, as I was sewing on the button, I discovered a very slight stain on the ribbon. I can't sell it in my shop BookWormz on Etsy because it's not perfect, but I hate to see it go to waste, so I thought I would hold a sweepstakes on my blog! All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post, and you'll have an entry! If you refer someone else to my blog and they refer to you in the post, I'll give you another entry! Thanks for stopping by, and good luck! Here are pics - the stain truly is barely noticable in person.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Maria is really down to earth, and really acknowledged everyone's concerns, although the standard answer to "will etsy do ____" was "it's on our list!" She was very cheerful, and down to earth. There were over 50 people at the meeting, and space was an issue. She immediately offered to squish on the "reserved for etsy staff" couch so others could be comfortable. (Matt ditched the couch altogether and sat on the floor!) All in all the etsy staffers were very attentive to what sellers had to say, even though they could not offer a firm answer on lots of things.

And that's a really pretty bookworm, flaws add character!

Very nice! I read to my dh every night, and one of my kids always knocks the book off the nightstand. This would be a big help!
