Calling All Readers!

I'm going to be doing a big giveaway on HorseFeathers. As in, huge. As in not-just-Olivia's-stuff. I'd like to have manymanymany things to be given away, so there can be multiple winners. Fun!

Alternately I may space it out, so that for a couple months there's a weekly giveaway. (Feedback, anyone? What would you prefer?) Due to the amazing response I'm getting, I think a weekly giveaway will be the way to go!

The only problem is...

We need people to offer up some goods to be given away.

If you decide to donate something — however small — you'll be getting a whole lot of traffic to your shop/blog just from the links. Plus, each sponsor of a giveaway will get 1 month free advertising in my sidebar.
Not only that; in the weekly giveaway the required entry will be to go to your shop (if you're on Etsy) or blog and say one thing they absolutely love.

Sound good to you? I'm happy to give away anything — jewelry, artwork, music, clothes, fabric, food (you know like, tea and brownie mixes and stuff), body love products (lotion, soap, etc), gift certificates to places, whatever.

I plan for the big giveaway (if we end up doing that) to start on January 30th (a Sunday) and go to February 13th (so two weeks). That way the winners will get a nice Valentine's Day surprise!
If we decide on a weekly giveaway stint, the first one will be on the 30th.
Weekly giveaways will commence on Saturday, January 22, and will continue on each Saturday.

So that means...

If you'd like to sponsor, please email me ASAP so we can get all this sorted out!

Thanks in advance, guys. You're the best. {{hugs}}


  1. This sounds like such a cool idea! I think a weekly giveaway sounds best. Will you be shipping internationally?

  2. Yay! This sounds like a lot of fun. :)

    I will definitely email you - I have a couple ieas up my sleeve.


  3. sounds so cool!
    Sadly, I have nothing to give away.. :/

  4. Libby: that depends on the seller. I won't actually be shipping, they will, so I'll make sure to ask each one if they'll ship internationally or not and make a note of it in the giveaway.

  5. Hello Olivia :) I just found your blog recently. I would be willing to help you with your giveaway.. I make Friendship Bracelets and Knitted/Crocheted Hats and Scarves :)

    God bless!


  6. We can talk about a simply luscious um something... When I get back

  7. Wow! Sounds awesome, I emailed you yesterday!

  8. I ask my sponsors who they will ship to and just select the ones which will ship worldwide. Sounds picky I know, but my readership is international and I feel I must provide giveaways which are accessable to all. Weekly giveaways sounds great :)

  9. That sounds like a great idea! I'm not sure if I have anything to give away, but like Lauren, maybe I can knit a hat for one of your giveaways?? :)

    I live outside of the USA so would I still be able to enter your giveaways?

    Have a great day,


  10. Maya'lee and Lauren: Those sound lovely. Email me and we can set you up. :)

  11. Oh goody, goody! I definitely will email after communicating with my mom. :D

  12. Hi Olivia!

    I'd like to participate. I do craft sometimes, but I'm mostly into fine art photography. I don't have an etsy shop, but you can see some of my stuff here...


    Anyway, I will email you later!

    Thank you so much,


  13. When is the deadline for letting you know about sponsoring? At the moment, I don't have anything to give away, but I might later on.


  14. Once I get my boutique up and running, you will have moi as a sponser! I am currently working on makeup bags and am hoping to sell them by the early to mid spring. Would that work? ^_^

  15. Kinga, any time you like! Since the giveaways will be weekly, they'll go on for a good long while (hopefully) so whenever you are ready, just email. :)

    Anna Gray: That sounds lovely! Again, just email when you're ready.

  16. Ooh! Sounds fantastic! I luv the idea! Unfortunately, I don't have anything to offer at all, so yeah....I hope the idea turns out great though!


  17. Hey, I've started to follow your blog, and it's really quite pretty!

    This is exciting, but I have nothing to give away sadly.

  18. i'm a new follower, and i'm glad i started following now, haha!
    can't wait for tomorrow!
