Surprise!! A Cutie Giveaway because I LOVE you so much!!

 In celebration of hitting 400 blog followers this week and ALMOST 50 sales in the shop, I'm doing a sneak-attack giveaway! :) (Well, sort of sneak attack... I blabbed about it on twitter a lot)

I am sincerely grateful for each of you who reads this blog and I know I've said it before, but I love my readers and am kind of astonished that so many people come here each day to say hello, read my words, make me laugh and encourage me.

So this is just a little thing to say mahalo for your love and support and for being totally awesome. :)

Wanna know which Cutie you could win?


Try.... any one of them! I just couldn't choose one Cutie to give away so I'll let the winner choose. If you win, you can not only choose any design Cutie (including but not limited to Click-Click, Wishin', Sew Cute, Tweet-Tweet and Party It Up) but you can also choose any color combo your little heart desires!

Also, I just introduced this brand new Cutie design today. It's called "Write On" and it's sooo cute! ;) (Duh.) So, that's another choice you have. 



This is limited to Cutie designs I've already introduced. So no crazy "Can you paint my pet grizzly bear, George?" requests. :)

You can see recently sold Cuties here. 

To enter, you must be a follower of AisletoAloha using the Google Friend Connect feature (Click the "follow" button on the right side bar.) Leave a comment on this post telling me what you love most about being a part of the blogging community. If you don't have a blog, tell me what you love most about reading blogs. 

**Additional entry**

2. If you tweet about the giveaway, leave a second entry. (Make sure you mention @aisletoaloha and include a link to this giveaway in your tweet!)

So, you have the potential to enter two times. 

The giveaway will be open until 10pm (Hawaii time) next Monday, February 14th. I'll choose the winner using random.org and announce it on Tuesday, February 15th. Since I'll be away, I'll start working on the winner's cutie the beginning of March and send it out soon after.

  1. Well duh I follow you.

    The thing I love most about the blogging community is how supportive everyone is. Most of my best blogging friends are people I've never even met in person and yet the love I get from them is just amazing.

  3. I follow you! :)

    What I love about the blogging community: I think it has to be the feeling of connectedness to something and that people that you may never meet care about what you say and what you do. I care about what you write- which I think is really cool, considering you are half a world away, on a beach, and I am buried under 2 feet of snow! :)
