I would just like to say a huge congratulations to the 4 winners of our first competition. The entrants had to email in a photo of their home workstation, and generate "likes" on their photo, via our Facebook Page. The 4 with the most votes win. And here they are:
MumMa came first - View their website here
Minky Bots came second - View their website here
Upper Cut Hair Design came third - View their website here
Moo and Flo came fourth - View their Facebook Page here
So what happens now?
Well how I described the competition initially was that the 4 winners would each receive a week of advertising all about them - so a more in depth business profile, lots of photos, shoutouts to their Facebook Pages etc. Basically a whole lot of free advertising to help them build their businesses.
What I have also suggested to the winners as they are contacting me is instead of one solid week, they each get 1 day a week, say a Monday, and every Monday of May they will get lots of additional advertising instead. I will let everyone know what they come back with, am going on a majority rule for this, as they are the winners and should be allowed to decide on this one.
I hope this helps them to generate more interest in their pages. As I am not currently a business, just a SAHM who wants to help others get their brands known, free advertising is a great tool that although not a PHYSICAL prize, it should help them long term.
I am away for a week now, on a much needed family holiday. I won't be online very much, but please stay tuned for more fun and games when I come back!

|My temporary work space while I set up my "real" one|
Well, it wouldn't be a real Facebook Page if we didn't have competitions now would it?
As this isn't currently an actual "business" (Although I am hoping to one day soon make it that way), I can't give away any prizes etc. However what I can offer, is more in depth, free advertising in the Facebook and Blog world. So what I propose is this.
I go away for my first family holiday, for a week (to Wellington, yay!) from Easter, so entries need to be in by Good Friday so I can draw it before I go. Email me in a photo of your home workstation. I will load all entries into an album on the Facebook Page. Get all your friends and families to "like" your entry. The 4 top votes (yes, 4, aren't I generous?) will each get a chance to have a whole lot of free promotion. Thats one winner for each full week in May, from Monday to Sunday. So each week I will be promoting a different winner. My only request is that we hit 150 "Likers" on Facebook by then. We have gone from 0-111 in less than a week, so it should be easy!
There will be:
A special article posted, dedicated to you and your business. (I will email you through the questions, plus whatever else you want to have in it).
A photo album, either new for new members, or we will add more photos to your existing one, if you already have one with the Facebook Page. This will also link up to your Facebook Page.
Links to your Facebook Page and/or Website daily for the week that you are being promoted, to enhance your traffic and, ultimately, your business.
|Don't even ask. I am in the process of sorting and moving into my "real" space!|
To get things started, here is a completely embarrassing photo of what my "work station" was like a week or so ago. I am in the process of setting up a whole new area where my craft supplies, writing supples and computer are all in the same (tidy) place. But just to show what I was working with (through my own fault of course) this is my ex-workstation. Complete with half dressed, vegemite covered child. There is a bed and a desk under all that mess by the way.
So there you have it. Email me your work station photos, get everyone to "like" the photos, and once we hit 150 Likers, the top 4 will win more free advertising. What do you think?
P.S in the case of a draw, we will go to a "sudden death" to see who can get the most likers in a pre-determined space of time.
We are a mobile food run, just like the bun runners you see in your offices and workplaces visiting your site everyday at the same time. The only difference is we have a specially designed vehicle with a commercial oven to keep food piping hot and a commercial chiller to keep food fresh and drinks icy cold!
With daily specials and an ever growing menu our mobile food run is on a mission to be New Zealand’s best mobile food operation.

Hello hello, I’m Hazel, a WAHM based in Palmerston North and I run Sew Addictive Fabrics! My reason for starting the business is to be at home with my wee girl Bella who is rather taken with fabric scraps…hmmmm ;-) My wonderful partner Kurt does lovely things to help such as listens as I show him every new fabric I LOOOOVE (all of them!) each time a new parcel arrives, basically, he rocks and without him and my very supportive immediate family, Sew Addictive Fabrics wouldn’t be here!
Enough about me & my wee family, the business, well I source and supply gorgeous designer fabrics for quilting, crafting, clothing etc and also boutique sewing patterns. I have an amazing group of very talented customers who all seem to be a wee bit addicted to fabric, its impossible not to be! Recently I ran my first Sew Along through the blog, an awesome thing to be part of and there is so so much more to come...
I do a lot of custom ordering so I welcome email requests, suggestions and feedback warmly...its all about fueling your addiction (its a healthy one ;-)
