The Dainty Squid: a giveaway AND an advertisement

Since starting my Etsy shop in February I've been looking for ways to promote my business, and naturally am drawn towards anything that also helps support other bloggers/creatives. So I decided to take the plunge and take out a blog sponsor spot on one of my all time favourite blogs, The Dainty Squid, which is written by the oh so lovely Kaylah. Below is a larger version of what my blog advert looks like - it's pretty simple, but as I'm a total novice in Photoshop I thought anything complicated would just become a total headache! What do you think of it? I'm still working on the branding for Ladybird Likes, so would love any feedback :)

 Oh and here is a quick screengrab (yup, still obsessed with doing them!) of my blog advert in place on The Dainty Squid blog! Definitely a big moment for me, as you can probably tell by the fact I have circled the advert and written 'that's me!' next to it. I embarrass myself sometimes...

Kaylah has also been lovely enough to let me host a giveaway over on her blog! Go take a look and enter for your chance to win a $40 gift card to my Ladybird Likes shop, and please help spread the word if you can :)

PS. hello to all my gorgeous new followers who have come over from The Dainty Squid! I will be spending today checking out all your blogs xo


  1. I saw this yesterday, so cool!! Oh, can I use that button on my site too? I made one from your banner but thats really lovely :)

  2. I entered this giveaway yesterday, and I just want to say that I absolutely LOVE your shop and think you're doing a fabulous job! Your little butterfly necklaces are so stinkin' cute. And I think your button is wonderful too! <3


  3. No thank you! For having such awesome ideas and the sweetest shop. I had to add you to my favorites on Etsy and now I stalk you daily. Also, you inspire me to start my own shop and blog soon.


I love getting comments and read every single one. I try to check out the blogs of people who leave comments, and reply wherever possible :) Thank you! xoxo
