First Annual Anniversary Contest

Hehehe, my title tickles me! You always see fifth annual or tenth annual, but they had to begin at first, didn't they? May 24 was the first anniversary of my Etsy shop. I am having a 10% off sale until 11 pm EST May 31. That is the first phase of my celebration and thank you to my customers. The next phase is what you are reading about right now! WOOHOO!!! I am giving away this ACEO titled "Family".

The next give away is a custom designed Flower Pendant on a cord or ribbon. You will say size, shape of petals, color scheme and if you prefer a wire bail or a focal bead style.

Also, anyone who leaves a comment on this post is entitled to a 20% discount until 11 pm EST, June 7th. Just write bloggy discount in your message to seller, don't hit the pay button and I will send a revised invoice. Or....convo me to tell me what you want to buy and I will revise the listing and put Reserved for you in the title.

What do you do??? Leave a comment on this post and tell me your favorite flower. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE.....make sure you leave a way for me to contact you. Some blogger profiles are private and they don't tell me a thing. I hate drawing a number and finding that I have no way of contacting that makes me sad! I will draw the winners on Sunday, June 8 at Noon CST using a random number generator.

I want to thank everyone who has made this year totally amazing for me. First of all to God who has blessed my efforts and has provided for us in some very imaginative ways. To all my are the best customers....EVER!!! And last but certainly not least, thank you to all the wonderful friends I have made this year - especially the BBEST team who laugh, cry, encourage, bully, dance and share their chocolate every day.

blessings, ZudaGay

I wasn't sure if you mean "my" favorite flower, or my favorite of the flowers on your website. I don't think they'll give me enough room to list my favorite flowers, but, Ok, I'll go with dasies and Iris.

Of your flowers, I will go with the pink waterlily (aceo).

Precious Quilts said...

Zuda, it is you we should thank for your wonderful sense of humour, kindness, generosity... I could go on but I want to spare your blushes!!!

My favourite flower? I guess the orchid because it is so strong, delicate and diverse.

Hi Zuda and congratulations on your anniversary and your first annual! I am so glad we met. You were one of the first bbesters to befriend me and will always be special to me. I love your creations. My favorite flower is a lilac followed closely by roses, pansies (& johnny jump ups) and peonies. Is that too many? I am a bit of a flower freak. :) ox madi joon

Zuda, Happy Anniversary! May you enjoy many creative years ahead. Your work is just so beautiful. I LOVE your new "Family" piece. You definitely have a gift for what you do.

It's tough to choose a favorite flower. I like them all! How about violets since they are popping up like mad in my yard this year.

Dear Zuda, Congratulations on your first anniversary! I wish you many more successful years of creating your wonderful art! I sure hope that random generator likes me! LOL. My favorite flower is the one I'm viewing at the time! It is just like trying to pick a favorite in your store...impossible! Again, best wishes for a successful year number 2!

Dawn said...

First let me say, Congratulations!
Then let me add, it was noice to check your blog and find a new post!

My favorite flower is the peony, pale pink. I had them across the back of the house in South Bend and tried to transplant them here. They have yet to bloom (3 years later) but I'm holding out hope.

Great work! I'm a Christian too, so blessings to you! My favorite flower is a rose, ANY color except black!
I love roses and draw them all the time on envelopes and cards that I give out! They're very cool as a flower...and so universal, speaking across all languages!
Your work is beautiful, and your ACEO's are really nice too. Maybe some day I'll try one!
