etsy shop opening & giveaway!

hello all!

it's been a while since i last posted, but i'm happy to announce that in my absence i've been working on products that will now be for sale in my new etsy shop!

as you can see above, at the moment i have a selection of necklaces, stickers and notebooks currently for sale. i've also been toying with the idea of earrings and rings, however i'm not too sure about whether they'd be as popular as necklaces! so please, if you have a spare moment, leave me a comment below or tweet me to let me know your thoughts on earrings and rings :)

the basic idea for the illustrations came about while working on my final university project that looked at rainforest animals, so i figured why not celebrate the animals typically associated with other places in the world?! in the end, i chose to focus on woodland animals, antarctic animals and australian animals as well as my rainforest animals and drew them up as simply and charmingly as possible!

and now for the giveaway!

i am giving away my initial trials of jewellery, which just so happened to be rings and earrings! as you can see above, they're all packaged up and ready to go! these designs aren't available in my etsy shop, so you could win something completely unique. there are four prizes in total, and each prize will consist of a ring and a pair of earrings illustrated with either a sloth, parrot, lemur or orangutan. due to the handmade nature of the items, if you win, please be mindful of them and be gentle with them to avoid breakages and keep them away from water; wouldn't want to spoil your winnings!

to enter, please ensure you have done both of the following:  
  • tweet about the giveaway - tweet whatever you like! just make sure to mention me @xrobynm so i can see your entry!
  • follow me on bloglovin - the link's right there for you, aren't i helpful?!

i will be choosing winners the old fashioned way by pulling names out of a hat simply because i don't know how all these online raffle what-you-have-thems work. you can earn as many entries as you like by tweeting me - each tweet will equate to another one of your names going into the hat! the giveaway will run for a week, ending at 5pm on sunday 23rd june, and i will announce the winners at 6pm on sunday 23rd june via my blog and twitter.

unfortunately i will only be posting within the uk, sorry to disappoint anybody!

so, there we are, that's everything you need to know to be in with a chance of winning one of four prizes! as you can see, i've also given my blog (yet another) a makeover! let's see how long i stick with this one for...

thank you all for your continued support and kind words, and good luck with the giveaway if you choose to enter!
