Happy 1st Birthday, Easton Place Designs! (And first giveaway!!)

The following is an excerpt from the first blog post on the original Easton Place Designs' Blog (July 2, 2010):

William Arthur Ward said:


    “If you can imagine it you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.”

"It is with great joy that I announce the Official opening of Easton Place Designs online store! I have imagined and dreamed of this day for quite a few years. Today I achieve it and now become the proud owner of my very own stationery shop....Today I celebrate, with you, the Grand Opening of my new store! Thank you to all of you who’ve encouraged me, promoted me and at times pushed me to stay on track."


It has been an absolutely wonderful year full of growth, knowledge, lessons and many successes. I've gained wholesale clients, international clients, U.S. clients near and far. I've expanded my brand to include a full line of Paper Lovelies for Baby as well as Graphic Design. Most recently I started a monthly newsletter to stay in touch with friends and "fans" of Easton Place Designs. Perhaps my greatest treasure found over the past 12 months are the many wonderful lifelong friends I've made through sales, facebook and twitter. I couldn't have asked for a better first year online.




As a celebratory "Thank You / Birthday Gift", I'm offering a pack of 12 greeting cards (one for each month my .com site has been open) from EastonPlaceDesigns.com to one lucky winner!! And to top it off, the winner can choose which cards they receive. The winner can choose 12 of the same card or  an assortment etc. Here's what you need to do to enter: (yes... you have to participate a bit to get a spot at winning)
