How it works:
1. Make a publically readable post (or tweet, or equivalent thingie that I don't know the name of yet) telling people that there's a birthday sale, and giving them the link ( http://elisem.livejournal.com/1832583.h
2. Come back here and leave a comment with a link to YOUR post/tweet/whatever (I know some things don't link, so do whatever creative thing will work, OK?) so various helpful sorts can check to see if it's successfully publically readable.
3. Profit! Er, I mean, you've got a chance of being the winner of a $53 gift certificate for shinies. That can be something from the sale, or we can talk about a custom piece. (Yep, I rarely do custom pieces, but for this, it could be fun.)
Thank you for spreading the word!
Edited to add: I'll draw the name of the winner at the end of the sale, which is Sunday night at midnight, Minneapolis time. (If the sale goes really well, I'll draw more than one!)
