I've made no secret of the fact that I like to make envelopes (need I remind you of the time I was turned into Scissor Claws?), so I thought that I would finally start selling some of these items because sane people shouldn't have to navigate towering envelope piles in order to get to their kitchen. And Dr. Feelgood says that I need to come inching back into the territory of the sane (just a wee bit) lest* I lose my way completely. So TA-DAH! Please Deliver To, the store, was born!
It's mostly just envelopes, notecards, and some odds and ends right now, but maybe one day, I'll be offering way better product for sale...like say, dragons and unicorns?!! I see the doubt on your face, but we'll see who is laughing when Smaug is in the mail.
ENVELOPE-PALOOZA PART TWOAlso, to celebrate this special occasion, I'm offering a giveaway! All you have to do is visit my shop, use your peepers to browse, and then come back and leave me a comment about your favourite item! That's it! You'll be entered into the giveaway to win that item! Also, don't forget to leave an email address where I can reach you!! If the launch of your own store isn't a reason to abuse exclamation marks, I don't know what is!!!!!!!!
Here are some of my personal favourite items:
|Peek-a-boo window envelopes|
|Sushi-themed Envelope Pocket Folder|
|Father Time Envelopes|
|Zebra Print Notecards|
Want an extra entry? I will provide an extra entry to any wonderful people who help promote this giveaway on their own blogs (not expected, but very much appreciated!). The giveaway closes on Wednesday, November 28.
Now what are you still doing here?! Get viewing, commenting, and/or shopping will you? I haven't been able to get to my kitchen in a few days and it's time to clear some of this stuff outta here. I would love to eat sometime this week. I'm starving marvin!
*I have always wanted to use the word "lest" on my blog. Now I have and life is worth living.
Okay, so I used my peepers to browse your etsy shop and I've narrowed it down to six favorites. I like the Toile envelopes, the Black Lace envelopes, the Cursive envelopes, the Peacock envelopes, the Father Time envelopes and the Blue Patterened envelopes. I suppose if I had to choose just one it would be the toil envelopes or the peacock envelope. See.....I can't even choose one out of two. I think they are all lovely and I wish you the best of luck with your etsy store. Now, I will go promote your etsy shop on my blog.ReplyDelete

Wow, that are some nice items in your store :)ReplyDelete
I wish you good luck and great success with it!!!
It was hard for me to choose too *hehe* It's all great, really!
But the Blue Patterned envelopes and Father time I like the most :)
I'll write about you giveaway in my new post soon.
CONGRATS LAURA!!! LOL Your Shop looks great! I've had my Etsy Shop for over a year now and it's a lot of fun. One little sale ever so often always puts a smile on my face. I LOVE the Mustache and Antique Chair Envelopes! Super cute. Oh, and I have already promoted you on my BLOG!!!!!! I hope you have as much fun with your Shop as I do with mine.ReplyDelete
Haha, forgot my emailDelete
My favourite items:ReplyDelete
-Peacock envelopes (really original!).
-Cupcakes envelopes (I usually don't like cupcakes. I find it's a superpopulation of cupcakes on Internet. But I love these!).
-Crayon line envelopes.
If I must choose just one, the peacock (because I have the right penpal to send letters in!).
Congratulations on your shop, and log life to it!

Monsters, cats, peacocks, rainbows, ducks and moustaches!!!!!! (which might now be the name of my autobiography)ReplyDelete
Although right at the end was the dreaded paisley pattern. Now I'm not too proud to say I wet myself. It gives me the fear!
Wah you have an Etsy store! LOVE IT! I thinks my favorite is the cute cats. Or the blue swirl pattern. Or the fishy one. Or the black lace. Or the feathers. I'm indecisive - can you tell?ReplyDelete
Oh, and I don't know if you have my email already, but it's openupthesky42 @ gmail.com if you didn't want to go to my blog to find it.Delete
I love the blue patterned envelopes! It was really hard to choose one item, though! Good luck with your shop!ReplyDelete
I'm torn between:ReplyDelete
Pack of 5 A6 scallop window envelopes in assorted colours (because it gives me a variety)
A6 Peacock Envelopes (5 in a pack)(because I have a special place in my heart for peacocks because of childhood memories)
But I guess I'd settle on the peacocks. Thanks for this giveaway - my e-mail is scribblingsarah at gmail dot com
Hi there! :) Your store is lovely. My favorite two are Feathers and Peacocks. (Spot a theme? :D) ananda.tashieATyahoo.comReplyDelete
Awesome--good job! :) I hope it is quite successful!ReplyDelete
It's hard to choose a fave BUT...I think I will go with the Antique Chair Envelopes. I went browsing at antique shops this past weekend so I think I have a currently elevated affinity for antiques. ;)
Hey! Congratulations on the Etsy store! I'm just about to pop over and take a little browse for myself. I'll add you to my circle. Feel free to add me back. I'm not entirely sure what purpose the "circle" serves, but it makes me feel included in something, which is nice.ReplyDelete
Yesterday I opened my own Etsy store! YES! What is the coincidence? I'm having a crack at selling postcards and photographic prints, but I'm too lazy to advertise. I don't want to make a big deal - the attention makes me nervous. ;) Anyways, like yourself, my shop has the most original of all original names: I am Sorcha Sidhe, therefore my shop is Sorcha Sidhe Shop. Oh my goodness, the originality of the whole thing is MIND BLOWING.
Enough rambling. Good luck with the shop!
Mustache envelopes! I HEART them so HARD! Congrats on the new shop!ReplyDelete
Hi Laura! Congratulations on your shop! Top effort. And I am loving your work. Am especially loving the crossword puzzle envelopes. But your whole range is hot! :)ReplyDelete
Oh... and PS - top use of the word 'lest'. It is not utilised enough in this world. Here's another good one: happenstance. Do you think you could work that into your blog somewhere along the line?? :)Delete
congrats Laura ! my favourite item : Hello Kitty trifold notecards with circle enclosure and Purple Damask trifold notecards with circle enclosure kisses from Argentina, Andrea firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
Congrats on your store! I can't wait to shop. It's very hard to pick one thing that is my favorite because they are all GORGEOUS. If I *had* to choose... it would be the peacock envelopes.ReplyDelete
Amazing store! I love everything, it's really hard to pick one favorite item! I guess I'll choose the lucky duck envelopes, though, I love the colors!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Congrats for the store and thanks for the giveaway!!!!!!!
Please disregard the message I just sent you on Etsy... But how was I supposed to know that you would post something on your blog on a Monday?! It's not Friday, Laura... You're trying to confuse me, I knew it.ReplyDelete
Oh and you and I have the exact same favorites! How is that even possible?!Delete
Congrats on the new Etsy shop, and thanks for having a giveaway. I've been reading your blog for a few months (I started reading right about when you said you had too many pen friends, so you requested no more letters from random readers, else I would have written you!).ReplyDelete
I like many of the options in your store... it was hard to pick just one, but I'm always drawn to zebra prints, so I really like the zebra print trifold notecards. I couldn't choose my favorite color, so the assorted zebra print trifold packs would be ideal, and the colors in the 2nd assortment pack are cool.
If I'm lucky enough to win, my email is: alegna101 at gmail dot com.
Yay for you! I love pretty much everything, but in particular, the Cupcake folder, and the crossword and moustache envelopes. In fact, they've already found their way into my favourites!ReplyDelete
I'd love to be entered in the giveaway, my email is madwild[at]gmail[dot]com
Amazing, I managed to get my own email address wrong >.< It's madwild24[at]gmail[dot]com. Forgot the 24, clever me...Delete
I LOVE the peacock envelopes. Laura I'm so happy for your new store! Pamela -- email@example.comReplyDelete
I love the Envelope Pocket Folder. I tried to make one, but it went out not so neat and nice haha)))ReplyDelete
Good luck in this endeavour. I've always loved your style, and I cannot be the only one!ReplyDelete
Such a lovely shop! I hope it becomes very successful! My personal favourites are ALL the envelopes... haha... but since I have to choose, it's the School of Fish envelopes. So pretty!ReplyDelete
It's hard to decide which is my favorite, I really like a lot of them! I guess if I really have to pick just one I'll go with the window envelopes.ReplyDelete
DONUTS! Oh, and the awesome father time ones, too! Such a great shop!ReplyDelete
Here's my email! firstname.lastname@example.org
Ooh, I nearly missed this! Fingers crossed that I win, your envelope making skills will always be far greater than mine!ReplyDelete
I would definitely go for the Sushi-themed Envelope Pocket Folder (or the Asian Flowers one too for that matter). I noticed your have the envelope pockets in vertical and horizontal styles--personally I prefer the envelopes in a vertical position. I love the idea of sending a pocket folder to a special friend and thinking of her reaction on seeing it! Many thanks and good luck with your shop! Erin lapoussine35 (at) gmail (dot) comReplyDelete
Skeleton key, Father Time, and Toile envelopes are my favourite in the shop :DReplyDelete
Lovely store, I wish you all the best!
Wow, your envelopes are fabulous! My favorites are: Mustache, Sheet Music, Peacock, Father Time, and your Paisley and Damask tri-fold note cards!ReplyDelete
Good luck with your store! (I've favorited it for later!!)
I love them all, but my favourite are the cursive envelopes.ReplyDelete
I think it would be a nice idea if you'd have some mixed envelope-packs as well. (Like, several designs in one pack - I know you already got it the first time :)) (Don't you just hate having to close brackets after a smily? I never know wether to put it there without a space in between and thus giving the smily a double chin or leaving a space and always wondering wether all the others thought I just made a typo and put a space where it doesn't belong. Oh well...)
All the best for you and good luck with your store!
