The random number generator thing have me number 33, which was Gill, who is going to spend her £100 Etsy gift card on something for her three grandchildren’s mothers. Hurrah!
It’s nearly Christmas, which means you should probably start trawling Etsy for all those handmade presents you’re going to buy (supporting indy designer-makers, especially at this time of year, is A Very Good Thing).
To help make it a little easier (and to celebrate the launch of Etsy gift cards), Etsy have given me a £100 vouchers to be given away on Make And Do With Perri. Hurrah!
So, this week just leave a comment below and I’ll randomly choose someone to give the gift card to. Why not tell me what you’d buy?
To celebrate the giveaway I’ve started this Pinterest board where I’m collecting all this prints on Etsy I’d buy if I had a spare £100.

I love this interactive guide – it has everything you need to set yourself up as an Etsy seller.
Some deets from the press release:
“There will be inspiration for brides, grooms and wedding parties, so if you’re planning a wedding you’ll be able to find pieces that work for your personality and budget including dresses, groomswear, stationery and serveware. Throughout the day there will be rolling DIY workshops, hosted by Parapluie Events, where you’ll be able to have a go at making a selection of wedding decorations from colour themed pom-poms to bride and groom pegs. Tickets are £5 and can be bought now. The Etsy Weddings Event is taking place at The Gallery Soho in London.”
