Thank you // Watercolor Giveaway

watercolor giveaway

A few months ago, during the summer, I noticed the number of sales I had in my Etsy shop. I don't pay a ton of attention to my shop's stats (I should probably be better about that), but I check on them occasionally to see if there are areas I can improve to help my shop be more successful. I don't remember the exact number of sales that day, but it was high enough that I felt proud of myself and I decided to set a goal. I wanted to reach 1,000 sales before the end of the year. 1,000 felt like a good number. A pretty neat mile stone. Once I set my goal, I really started paying attention.

I checked my stats more regularly. I did more research on growing my shop and increasing sales. I created more prints to add to my shop. I worked harder. And I knew I would reach my goal. I could see my work paying off and I could see my goal getting closer and closer. I thought I might even reach my goal early, right at my shop's first anniversary. Wouldn't that have been cool? But I didn't quite make it ...It came one month later. 
It came this weekend. Before the end of the year. I made my 1000th sale.

Sure, I put in work for this, but there's no way I could have ever reached my goal without all of you. The support you've shown me -and not even just through purchasing my work, but through kind words, advice, inspiration, patience... You guys are amazing! And I just want to say thank you! Thank you for being so great! 

And as a special thank you/celebration gift, I'm doing a GIVEAWAY! An artist I've recently become kind of obsessed with is Bethany Eden. Her watercolors are so beautiful and I love the emotion you can feel behind each piece. And the colors. Oh, I love how vibrant her colors are.

The lucky winner will receive the gorgeous floral print above (I think it would look so cute in a nursery ...or a kitchen ...or anywhere, really), along with the box of thank you cards -both beautifully painted by Bethany Eden. Enter below and receive additional entries by entering on my Instagram post as well. Good luck! 
Giveaway ends Saturday night.

***Ok, I know some of you are thinking, "Why are you giving away someone else's artwork when you just went through this long-winded post all about your own artwork??" Well, the best way I can explain it is that I'm so excited and grateful to have reached my goal and what better way to show appreciation for the support I have received than to pass it on to a fellow artist who also works hard and has goals? I hope that makes sense.
