A few weeks ago, a woman by the name of CaddySW contacted me through my Etsy shop. She said she was planning on doing a giveaway for her followers on YouTube and Facebook and would I care to participate. Well, I didn’t know what to say. I asked myself the usual questions–Is this valid? What are the repercussions? What interest does she have in me? etc. and decided to proceed.
The conversations between CaddySW and myself were great; she sounded so motivational and took away my uneasiness. She gave me links to her YouTube page to help me get an idea of what she was about. Apparently she is doing the giveaway to tell her followers how much she appreciates them. Five hundred followers in all!
I’ve never done a giveaway before, so I didn’t know how to proceed. She asked for things that young mothers would want, and being as she mentioned the glasses cases in a previous email, I went with those.
Well, today is the big day!!! I’m Viral!
The compassion and empathy she shows toward women who have their own business, is absolutely astounding. Not to mention how she finds the time to raise her child, keep her husband happy, hold down two jobs, and then post video. And to think, “Mwah??” Little old me?? Watching the video brought tears to my eyes. To think that The Universe stepped in and brought her to me out of the blue… This experience has made me very humble and thankful for those people who find my items valuable. Not to mention, thankful to The Universe for sending her my way. It’s a happy day!

Be sure to look at the sponsors of this giveaway, listed below the video. I’m ordering a decal for my sewing room from BrookLee Creations, another sponsor of the giveaway, and you might want to look at them too. Then listen to CaddySW’s stories of the other women she admires and why. So sensitive and personal.
