I like you too.

A massive shop update all of a sudden. New books, some books you've caught glimpses of, loads of botanical brooches. And now, also, letters to you. My matchbox project has a will of its own and it's also easily persuaded. I'm just having too much fun making my little quirky art things! So, now they really are made as art, not as a creative wastebin thing for my scraps :)

I'm in a terribly good mood this week, so I think it's a good idea to spread the joy a bit. (Free stuff, yay!) I'm just about to reach 300 sales in my shop, so whoever purchases the 300th item will also receive a matchbox letter, specially made just for that person.

And just because I kind of like the people who read my blog, really, really much, I think I could make a little something for you too. Leave a comment (with some contact info, please) and you have a chance of winning two matchbox letters, one mysteriously (or not) in Finnish and another one in English, telling the story of the abandoned house and the magician and the possibly imaginary funambulist. One way to improve your chances of winning is to tell me what kind of things you imagine I've been writing to people or what you would like me to write. I'll draw a fairly random name from a group of nice comments next Sunday (July 19th) and announce the winner right here in my blog. And if the winner happens to be Finnish, I'll just write the story in Finnish too, just because, you know.

Yep, I'm checking how closely you're reading my blog ;) No huge giveaway signs around here and you need to say more than hi. Sorry if you came here just to say hi. I like you anyway.
