Jam Tarts give-away

I’ve been spending loads of time immersed in the world of blogs lately and have picked up some excellent ideas. One of them is inspired by Jenny of Jenny Arnott Textiles  (striking designs and finished products and, boy,  is her work room tidy….).
As you know, we have been sowing the seeds for a little business called Jam Tarts.  Now we are starting to see some shoots making their way out of the soil towards the sun. Anne and I have been planning a give-away for a while now, but I think you guys won’t mind if we link it to a couple of “conditions” so that we can expand our profile on the internet.
We have come up with three items, a hat trick! :
One of Anne’s frothy scarves, lightweight enough for summer, but wrapped round a couple of times warm enough for autumn, in a soft creamy yellow. Makes me think of lemon meringue pie:
A mini button frame, measuring 15 by 15cm, with a little metal fitting at the back so you can stand it up if you don’t want to put it on a wall:
and third, a pair of jaunty hoop earrings that have a distinct African tone:
Retail value of the give-away is R225.00 (which probably doesn’t sound too much in the UK or the States,  what with our poor Rand getting weaker and weaker right now).
So, if you’d like chance to win:
1.  Become a follower of this blog. If you already are, you will automatically be included in the draw.
2. Like the Jam Tarts facebook page. If you already have, you will automatically be included in the draw.
If you do both, or have already done both, your name will be included twice.  The cut-off date is Sunday 24 June 2012. And you can enter from anywhere in the world, the postage will be on us.  This is our first foray into marketing strategies – will be interesting to see what happens next. Any comments? Lousy idea? Brilliant idea? Please let me know what you think.

    Wow Jill and Anne that’s a very neat idea and what’s really cool is that I’m automatically entering because I have done both. I love all three of the items and would feel very fortunate to win them. :) Hugs, Tamara

    I think give-aways are a great marketing strategy. Kudos to you for growing your interweb presence! I have been an avid blogstalker for several years and they seem to always grow after a giveaway. Timing is key and you are taking good advantage of it by directly following the VBA! Best wishes :)
