The Year of RAD...A Happy Birthday Tumbleweeds VLOG

I made a vlog. Yes, yes I did. And it's all about the exciting month of May for our little business. It's probably the most exciting month of all time and I am really stoked to share a few ways we're celebrating our little business *birthday!!! Also, I am so nervous about posting this, so um, don't laugh at how twitchy I am. 

So, if you got bored listening to me jabber on forever, here are the deets. All month, you can receive FREE SHIPPING in our shop. Just use the Etsy Coupon Code FREESHIPPING. If you don't know how to enter a coupon code on etsy, here is an easy tutorial. It doesn't matter where you live, or how much you purchase from our shop, you can use that code for free shipping.

And the best part, on MAY 11th, we are holding a day long interweb take-over for a giant awesome giveaway at the end of the day. All day long, we encourage you to post photos with the #happybdaytumbleweeds on twitter (@tumbleweedsshop) Instagram (@dougswit, @becalewis) on our facebook page and on your blogs. If you own a pair of our sunglasses, we want to see photos of you wearing them, no matter what you are doing, we want pictures! On a lunch break, hanging with the kids, etc etc. If you have been waiting to style your pair of tumbleweeds on your blog, May 11th is the day! We want photos of you, your husband, your dog, your kids and your buddy's grandma wearing our sunglasses. We want to see them in funny places, on bike rides, on the dash of your car. We just want to see where our glasses go and who goes with them! 

Don't worry, if you don't own a pair of our glasses yet, you can tweet to us (@tumbleweedsshop) what pair of sunglasses you want, what you want to see from us in our second year, where you would wear our glasses, the list goes on. You can enter 1 time, or 100 times, but at 10pm TN time, we will randomly select a winner from combined posts to our facebook page and twitter #happybdaytumbleweeds entries. THE WINNER WILL RECEIVE A 100% CUSTOM PAIR OF SUNGLASSES. YOUR TUMBLEWEEDS DREAMS CAN BE A REALITY! We wouldn't be here if it weren't for the blogging and etsy/handmade community, so we want to say thank you. I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid contest, we think it's pretty neat and we can't wait to wake up Friday morning to see all of your entries! Let's bomb social media with Tumbleweeds and start this second year off with a bang!

1. Tweet @tumbleweeds shop a photo of you wearing your tumbleweeds glasses as many times as you like with #happybdaytumbleweeds
2. Add a photo to our facebook page of you wearing your glasses.
3. Blog a style post/wishlist/general awesome blog post with our glasses. Link up to us on twitter or facebook.
4. tweet @tumbleweedshsop what sunglasses you wish you had/what you want from us in the future and link up to our shop!
5. send us a postcard with a hand drawn picture of you wearing our sunglasses (only kind of joking, but really, if you want our address, we'll take it as an entry!)
6. Really, use any form of social media to share your love for our your tumbleweeds (or future pair of tumbleweeds) and celebrate our little birthday with us!!

Does that make sense? Let me know if yall have any questions or anything! We're super jazzed. MAY 11TH, SEE YALL THERE!!

Beca & Doug

*To clarify, we have had our business Tumbleweeds for almost 2 years now, BUT we have only been selling sunglasses since May 11th, 2011. So, it's the sunglasses birthday....riiiiight!
