Although progress has slowly been happening, I've been slacking on updating this lovely Wabi-Sabi Wedding Day blog. I admit, I've been a bit bummed about the lack of donations. It's true that I wasn't expecting much, but I was confident that I could get the word out to the world and I'd at least get considerably more views and comments, and just maybe a couple small, random donations.
I had a free $100 of ads to run with Google AdSense. I made a lovely ad, but it was denied because they don't allow all-caps, and thus the word "LOVE" wasn't allowed. Then I found out that, since one of the main purposes of this blog is to get donations, I may not be allowed to run ads for it anyway. (Although now that I think about that again, I'm not sure if it makes sense... hmm)
On top of that, I've been really busy. I haven't been tracking my progress though, so I couldn't tell you what I've been doing that's kept me so busy! Just general Mom stuff, I guess. :)
We are, however, VERY thankful for the $135 worth of donations we've received, even if it's only from 3 people!
The giveaway is officially over, but I did want to make a post about what our lovely friends and family won. :)
I admit that they don't even know they've won anything yet, and I've just been holding onto their prizes for a couple of weeks now! This post will no doubt start a snowball effect and they will receive their awesome prizes soon.
I'm actually jealous... I kinda want to buy this stuff for myself but it's hard to justify the prices! It's been a little hard to not just break into everyone's prizes and eat 'em all up. (They won't know!!) :)
I haven't taken pictures of the exact prizes, but I have to say they DO include goji berries and truffles.
I picked all of these personally and chose things that I thought the individuals would like best, so hopefully they do! :D
Just in case you're jealous too, you can donate some money and, even though the giveaway is officially over, I might be able to scrounge up a little something for you, maybe. Giving thank-you gifts is fun! :D
