a win-win situation

Two wins to report today:

1. The winner of the Jam Tarts give-away is Mj Hanley-Goff, all the way away in Washington in the Yoo-nited States! Mj is a writer and traveller and mom, and earlier this year she brought her 16-year old daughter to visit South Africa and see what we’re all about over here.

2. The other win is a mention that we got in the July issue of the Ideas magazine: just a teeny one but, hey, every bit helps. (Plus they included a really nice pic of one of my mirrors).

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.
