Happy (Belated) New Year!
Welcome back to my website – it’s been a while since to wrote anything here. But a new year has a funny way of spurring you into doing things that have been lurking in the dark corners of your mind.
According to my calendar, Monday 17th January 2022 is Blue Monday. Officially recognised (not sure by whom) as the most miserable day of the year. So that’s a bit grim. But the same calendar says that Thursday 17th February 2022 is Random Act of Kindness Day. I confess I didn’t realise such a day existed.
But those two dates got me thinking….
A Random Act of Kindness
Random acts of kindness can be as small as smiling at a stranger even when you have a mask on, to giving up your seat on the train to someone who’d benefit from it more. There’s a whole panoply of options.
For me, I want to say thank you to all of you, my lovely customers and supporters, and to offer one lucky person one of my best-selling Amy Small Zip Top Handbags, complete with inside zip, in any of my available fabrics.
All I’m asking is for you to nominate someone that you feel would appreciate a Sallyann Bag in their life. They may have one and want a new one. They may have bought you one and you know deep down they wish they’d bought one for themselves at the same time. Maybe they’ve had a bad year. Maybe they’ve had a good year. Perhaps they are simply your best friend. Or your Mum. Or both.
All you have to do is send me their name and the choice of fabric you would like the bag to be made in. You can see all of the different fabrics here. Closing date for nominations is midnight on 16th February, and on Thursday 17th February, Random Act of Kindness Day, I will announce the lucky recipient of the special Amy Small Zip Top Handbag.
There are no catches, you don’t have to share my page (although if you’d like to, thank you very much).
You can send in your nominations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by replying to the posts highlighting this giveaway that will appear on my social media from tomorrow, the dreaded Blue Monday. As I said, all I need is the person’s name (you can tag them on the post if you want) and the fabric design you think they would like.
So get thinking and nominate who you’d like to receive Sallyann Bag this February!
