New Year

It's been a while, a very long while actually. Every time I've meant to write I've gotten distracted by something else.

It's once again January 1 and Gin's birthday. This year he got a vulture to play with.


On October 25 I started selling stitch markers on Etsy under the name BeaGin Design, and people seem to like them cause I've sold 100 sets since then, more actually. And I've had some custom orders that never even made it to Etsy.
In order to celebrate how well it's going I decided to have a give-away. The only thing you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on this blog-post before noon(my time which is CET) January 6 and then I'll use a random number generator to tell who won.

The prizes you say?
I'm giving away

one set of small color coordinated stitch markers,


2 random sets of small markers


and 2 random sets of large markers.

It is not the random sets on the photos but something similar.

ETA: I should add the the store is quite empty right now but it will get re-stocked once I get home and have the chance to make more markers.
