Miranda [Hand]writes Grand Opening (And a Giveaway!)

I accomplished a goal over the weekend.

One of my resolutions for 2014 was to use my handwriting skills to create things and open an Etsy shop. Well, after a couple of months of playing around with ideas, Miranda [Hand]writes is officially open! There are currently ten items available for sale, as well as the option to create a custom print.

I'm really excited about this little endeavor. I always love seeing people use their talents to create things. I think it will be really enjoyable, especially as I continue to try new things. I don't expect to generate much income from this shop, but the money that I do earn will be put aside in a savings fund for future publishing expenses. My book is coming together quickly, and I want to make sure that I'm ready to foot any bills that may be required when I get ready to attempt to publish.

All of the items in my shop are "handwritten prints." Each print is completely unique and made especially to order. I love words in every way, shape and form possible. I will continue to add inspirational prints to my shop, and if you or anyone you know has a request for a specific quote, phrase, or word, I would love to do that as well. These prints are great for everything from gallery wall additions to a little desktop inspiration.

In order to celebrate this accomplishment, I have decided to do a giveaway here on the blog. Several of you have  been keeping up with my process of working on this project, and I just want to say thank you! Three winners will have the option of choosing one of the prints below. The "Books Equals Love" print and the "I'm Totally Blogging About This" print are my two favorites, and I couldn't decide which one to use as the giveaway prize. So, I'm letting the winners choose whatever one they prefer!

You don't have to do anything fancy to enter to win. You don't even have to be a follower of my blog! (Of course, I would love to have you around though, ha ha.) All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, telling me what written words mean to you. Do they inspire you? Do they give you a new frame of mind? Whatever it is you love about words, I want to know! You will earn an entry for your comment, and then I will choose the three winners by using a random number generator. It's that simple! I will be taking comment entries through Friday night, and I will announce and contact the winners on Monday!

Good luck, and thank you! :)

Written words are an escape from reality for me! At least for pleasure reading. I love that blogging one!

Congrats on your shop girl!!!

I think words are very powerful. They can make you feel so many things: inspired, happy, sad, hurt, pain, rejuvenated, alive....the list goes on! I love having little quotes around me all the time.

Congratulations, your shop and book are huge accomplishments!

Also, of course I love words and the meaning they can convey in such little time.

this is so exciting! SO proud of you!
Words mean a lot to me, like Amanda said they can help and they can hurt.

I love this so much! It's crazy how we use words to communicate, but also that animals have their own ways of communication without them! Words set us apart from all the other species!
