Closeup Contest – Win a Shopping Spree! {ended}

It’s time for a contest!  Everyone likes to win, right?  Well, what we’re giving away is a $75.00 shopping spree in our Etsy shop!!!  November 1st – November 8, 2013.

Here’s how it works – we will post a picture here on our blog on the morning of November 1st of simple every day items you should be familiar with.   The catch – the images are SUPER close up & black & white (color would just give them away!) – so you have to figure out what the image is!  Fun right?   The first person to get all the correct answers will win the shopping spree!  There are also second and third place prizes!

Once you have a chance to look at the images, you will go over to our contest entry form and submit your information and answers for a chance to win!

Ok, let’s try this out….here’s an example!

Sample Closeup

Easy peasy, right?  You’ve seen it before whether you realize it or not!  Figure it out yet?  I’ll give you a hint….Apple sends them out with almost every one of their items.  You guessed it, a wall power adapter for your devices!

So, be ready to play starting November 1st, 2013 – watch our Facebook page for the announcement!

Redesigning – Reinventing – Revisiting!

Last post was in March 2013.  Wow – has it really been since March?  Sorry about that, things have been rather crazy and busy around here.
So, I am currently redesigning our blog – so bear with me as the changes are being made and excuse the dust, it’s a construction project in progress!  I hope to use it more once I finish it!
South for Winter is now strictly a mother/daughter team!  My daughter, Alexis, has been on board since the beginning – but, it’s OFFICIAL, she is my business partner and contributor of items such as loop bracelets and artwork drawings!  I still do 100% of the sewing, but she is helping by learning the ropes – cutting fabric, how to interface, etc!  She is going to be such a big help as there are times when demand is more than I can handle alone {that’s a good thing!}
There’s lots of goodness happening over on our Facebook page – if you’re not a fan, you should be! { click here }
I love blogging, and honestly I will try hard to fit it in the schedule more!  Soon, I will have a contest opportunity again – I’m working hard to make it happen!
That’s what’s up at South for Winter as of today!
Creatively Yours,
Christina Moran, Owner/Designer
