I sent out these pretty parcels to some of my favorite bloggers last week (I still have a laundry list more to go, but ahem the budget is a tad constricted right now. In my haste I did send the wrong note + package to the wrong recipient which is such an outrageous blunder, but no one has mentioned it yet, so either they didn't mind or expect me to be a bit scatter brained.  I still owe the original blogger one. I do plan to sell gift packages like this in the shop, they may not be exactly the same, they may be even better, yes indeed.  I love the idea of easy gifting, anything that takes the angst out of finding the perfect gift is all right in my book. May I point out the notecards in this photograph?  They are the Besotted Brand signature stock and they are so luxuriously thick, the individual on the receiving end of your card will absolutely comment, I haven't had one person not mention how perfectly thick they are.  For the purposes of using them with the Besotted Brand hand stamps they are also perfectly smooth.  I tried countless cardstocks before I created these notecards, I was like the Goldilocks of paper, nothing was quite right and then I came across this one mill that had stock so gorgeous that I immediately ordered their outrageous minimum orders worth.  I must sell it or else my future children will not be going to college.  Yes, I made a hefty investment thus the budget constraints mentioned up above.  I believe it was worth it, I am a paper-phile and if this stock made my heart sing I am sure it will do the same for others with my same affliction.

I am going to be giving a variation of this pretty parcel away, you will have until next Tuesday, October 4, 2011 to enter and I will announce the winner on October 5th. Just leave a comment, you can enter as many times as you help me spread the word. So comment and then pin this post, tweet it, facebook it, get a friend to join the mailing list and come back and leave a comment, whatever it takes, spread the word so my future children won't have to work in a fast food joint and live at home when they are adults.  Thank you in advance and I am sure that my future children thank you as well.

I woke up at 2am and decided to read some blogs when I came across this loveliness! I would LOVE to win it. I just adore small multi-piece packages, if you know what I mean. So fun. I'll tweet about the contest for the sake of your future children. LOL!

coasterkim (September 27, 2011 at 2:48 AM)

Lauren (September 27, 2011 at 11:28 AM)  

That looks so lovely, how nice would that be to receive instead of a bill in the mail!

I need that stamp! Ugh why do such nice photos make me feel like my life is now incomplete.... Ugh Miss B, please tell me that the stamp will be available in the shop when it opens... cause chances are I won't wait to find out if I won-- I'll buy it first!

Naomi Shiek (October 4, 2011 at 2:33 AM)  

Your products & packaging just made me into a puddle of warm goo - I WANT THEM. I found my way here through the blog Creature Comforts and can't believe I haven't found your beautiful blog until now. I've added your pins to my boards on pinterest and this blog to my blog roll and I've signed up for your newsletter but more than anything I'm looking forward to your shop opening! Just... brilliant. And your promotional forethought is so clever, I should have read your blog for tips before launching my own little online business.
Looking forward to more!

Naomi Shiek (October 4, 2011 at 3:09 AM)  

Ooh, also blogged about this!

jenn (October 4, 2011 at 10:58 AM)

Just about the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I'm sure worth every penny. I'd be afraid to use any of it because it's just so perfect as is.

Jessica –  (October 4, 2011 at 4:55 PM)  

So pretty! I would love to get one of these beauties in the mail!

Little Pink Studio (October 4, 2011 at 7:31 PM)  

Nothing makes me more weak in the knees that beautiful presentation like this.
I'll be anxiously awaiting your shop opening, and crossing my fingers to win this.
