Three years!

We interrupt Inspiration Friday to bring you something else. Today, as previously mentioned, is the anniversary of the day I opened an Etsy shop...three years ago!
THREE YEARS!
I am not one who is known for sticking with a vocation. The term "serial-temp" has been applied to me in the past.
Well, WHO'S TEMPING NOW? THREE YEARS!
In honor of this milestone, a video:

And that's right, A GIVEAWAY! (I can't stop with the all caps today!) This is my little way of trying to say thank you for three great years.
Simply leave a comment below to be entered. We'll pick a winner on Monday, Feb. 15th.


For extra points, (that is, extra comments + increased chances to win), you can also do any of the following:

1. Buy something from me! 5 extra points!
2. Join the mailing list! 1 extra point!
3. Upload a photo to the Chickenpants fan page! 2 extra points!
4. Join the Chickenpants Fan Page! 1 extra point!
5. Blog about the contest! 2 extra points!
6. Tweet about the contest! 1 extra point!

To get those points, do one (or more!) of the things mentioned, then come back here and leave an extra comment(or...five. or however many. Does that make sense? I need more coffee.) Leave me comments. Win things. Yay!

Happy Etsyversary!! Is being referred to as a 'serial temp' better or worse than being known as the 'donut eating temp'? Because I was the 'donut eating temp' - and I held the title with pride for many years. I was also referred to as Zog, which is another story.

Oh and I NEED that chickenpants #285! because here's my comment. And because I already love him....

eep! happy anniversary, and many more! what a fab giveaway! :D (I am already a fan of your fan page, does that count?)

Teddy Started It said...

I'm back! So, is being referred to as a 'serial temp' better or worse than being known as the 'donut eating temp'? Because I was the 'donut eating temp' - and I held the title with pride for many years. I was also referred to as Zog, which is another story.

And I'm SO going to win Chickenpants #285! Perhaps I will call him the donut eating chickenpants? Or maybe Zog. Or maybe just chickenpants, because I love saying chickenpants. Chickenpants. Chickenpants. CHICKenPANTS!!

Oh, sorry, I got carried away there. Here's your blog post:D

I loooove Chickenpants! When I get my tax return I'm commissioning a special friend! And I posted a pic of Baby Zoe going to dinner with me...Chickiepants!

Okay, I'm obviously overexcited. So here's my email:

And joined the mailing list. I love these little babies. Seriously. This is probably going to become an obsession. I can't stop carrying little Zoe around with me.
