Update (May 30th, 7:50pm): All the brooches have been spoken for now; most shipped today and the remaining ones will ship tomorrow. Thank you again for so many thoughtful, happy entries!
Today is my fourth Tangerine Menagiversary, and to celebrate, I’ve made a batch of my Tiny Tangerine brooches to give away! We get a lot of questions about and requests for this brooch; I designed it to be a gift and it’s not one I will ever make to sell. But I do want to be creative in finding ways to give them to people who will enjoy them and what better occasion than my anniversary?
There will be 20 winners; ten will be drawn at random and Cait and I will choose our favorite responses for the other ten.
Because of the number of prizes, I will be asking winners to cover the cost of shipping. To the US, this will be $5; to Canada, $10; to the rest of the world, $14. I understand that asking people to pay to ship a gift isn’t ideal, but when I held a poll on Instagram to ask whether people would prefer to see more winners or free shipping, the overwhelming majority voted for more winners.
There is a strict limit of one entry per person. Please do not enter using multiple email addresses and please do not enter others on your behalf. Please do not enter the giveaway in order to sell or swap the brooch if you win. If you win and after a time decide that you’re done with the brooch, I hope you will choose to give it to someone else as it was given to you.
For weeks, I’ve been trying to come up with a prompt for entries and I’ve discarded a bunch of ideas. Finally, yesterday, I realized what I wanted to ask you: please leave a comment and tell me about something good. I’ve been going through a bit of a rough patch and I just want to hear about something in your life that makes it better or happier - it could be a book or a movie or a podcast; it could be something you did recently; it could be a person or animal; it could be an outfit you wore last week that made you feel cute. It doesn’t need to be a big life-changing thing; small pleasures are wonderful too. Please also include your shipping country so I know what shipping rate to invoice you for if you win!
The giveaway closes Sunday, May 26th, at 11:59pm Pacific Time. Cait and I will notify winners by the end of the day on May 29th. Winners will have 24 hours to pay their shipping invoices or we will select another winner. Good luck and thank you for four fabulous years!
