If you follow me on Twitter, then you may already know that over the weekend I won a giveaway contest being hosted by Got Craft? Vancouver. My prize was a swag bag full of goodies from Got Craft? vendors. I was so excited that I won because I NEVER win anything. I rarely enter internet giveaways anyway, so this turn of luck came as a huge surprise to me.

I attended the Got Craft? show on Sunday and was blown away by the amazing stuff that people were selling. Seriously, I wanted to buy at least one thing from each vendor. Plus, I got to meet some Vancouverite Etsy sellers that up to this point I only interacted with virtually. It's so awesome that Vancouver has such a vibrant handmade community.

Now I got to figure out what I'm going to do with all this stuff. I'm probably going to spread the love and give most of it away. 


  1. Way to go, Alice! It was so nice to meet you. And I'm glad you scored one of my mini crystal collection boxes. I didn't keep one for myself, so it's nice to get a look at one continuing its journey with someone else. This looks like an awesome haul!

  2. Awesome! Look at all those handmade goodies!

  3. Such great stuff! Good for you.

  4. Ooo. What a great mix of crafty swag! Enjoy it!

  5. Congrats on winning the swag bag! Enjoy your pile of stuff!! ;)
