"Breaking News!" and Giveaway!

Good morning all!  Well, since I have already messed up my week of regular posts by missing yesterday's Royal Ranch Royalty, I figure it is okay to keep the disorganized theme this week, it's just that time of year.  I do want to make sure to tell you that I will be continuing my metaphysical (there must be a problem with blogger, this is not supposed to be a link) posts; I got such wonderful feedback, how could I not?  But, today I have breaking news, that just can't wait!
We have finally gotten our retail line of t-shirts, hats and hoodies up and running.  But, this is so new that it is not even on my e-store yet; you, my devoted readers get first shot at these fantastic t-shirts! 
This all came about when we launched Naked~Nure; people absolutely loved "Naked Johnny", our llama poo handling expert.  I knew I needed to make him more prominent, so I came up with a new logo and had it printed on t-shirts.
I was hoping to have my retail line ready in time for the big Christmas shopping season, but wanting to keep my business local and being very picky about the quality of the products that I will allow our name to be on has made it a slower process than I imagined.  After finding a 100% organic cotton line, that of course had to be made right her in the good old USA, there was a machinery glitch.  That was a quality control issue as well, and was worth the wait for the proper machine to be fixed.  See, my line of products is direct to garment transfer; meaning that the inks are infused into the fabric, so the garment is still very soft and pliable, unlike vinyl logos.

Normally (not including the giveaway, I mean), these t-shirts will sell for $15, which I think is a real bargain for such an original shirt, made in USA and organic!  I am still working on pricing for the hats and hoodies, but if you need an item right away let me know via e-mail at judy@royalranch.net and we can place a special order.  Right now I only have the t-shirts in the "natural organic" color in stock, but we have things set up, so we can special order the hats and hoodies, and the t-shirts in other colors (at least blue and black).  I will also e-mail gift certificates for a specific item or dollar amount (so they can check out Naked~Nure too!) through e-mail/PayPal if you have a gardener on your list that this will fit the bill perfectly for.  Your gardening friends and family are really going to get a kick out of this logo!
Yes, I did mention a giveaway!  To kick this line of cool stuff off with a bang, I am going to give two of these shirts away to you, my dedicated readers and to any new followers!  So, here are the ways to earn yourself entries into my giveaway:

  1. If you're already a follower, just leave a comment that you'd like to be included, and what size you'd like if you win, and that will count as one entry.


  2. If you are not a follower, you must go to the follow tab at the bottom left of this blog and sign up; it is really simple.  Then leave me a comment as to the size shirt you'd like if you win,


  3. For extra entries, blog about this giveaway and come back here and leave me a link, please.


  4. You must enter by noon on January 1st.  I can't think of a better way to start my new year off than by notifying two lucky winners!  My handy dandy computer random number generator will choose a winner on the 1st and I will let the winners know right away!  If I don't hear back from them within 48 hours, I'll be forced to pick another happy winner.

So, once again you have a chance to earn two entries for two great prizes!  I hope to hear from you soon and make a miracle today; tis the season!
