Even though I still feel like I’m 12 on the inside, today I turn 25!  That’s kind of a big deal.  
My personal life has been out of control for the past several months, and I have totally fallen off the wagon with this blog.  Things are mostly okay now, but it’s taking me some time to get my routine back.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the support I have gotten from all of you here.  I love every nice message you send me, and sometimes they make me cry. :’)
I just want to say thank you for everything.  And I have a couple of presents for you, in honor of my entering the second half of my twenties (eee!).
From today (4/19/14) until 4/25/14 (that’s one whole week), you can get 20% off of any size order in my etsy shop with the coupon code TYLERIS25.  Also, if you spend $40 or over, not including shipping, and you message me with your etsy username, I will make you a tumblr icon for free!
Also, I am having a little giveaway!  Two of you can win a surprise pack of an F-ton of slightly imperfect prints from my etsy shop sent to you in the mail!
To enter, please make sure you are following me, and REBLOG this post (likes don’t count, sorry!).  I will choose 2 winners at 10 PM a week from today (4/25/14) and notify you via inbox.  If you don’t respond within 48 hours, I will choose a new winner.
Thank you!!  I love you!! :*

Well, it&#8217;s almost that time of year again&#8230; time for lighting the menorah, eating latkes and sufganiot, and spinning around like a dreidel while your mom plays Chanukah songs on the piano until you fall over and maybe throw up.  And you know what that means: a Roaring Softly Chanukah giveaway!
Here&#8217;s the dealio:
Chanukah has 8 nights, starting on Thanksgiving (11/27) this year.  For each night, I am going to pick a winner.  That&#8217;s 8 winners total!
These are the prizes:
Nights 1-6: Custom tumblr icon drawn by me
Night 7: Drawing of you and the celebrity or character of your choice, emailed to you
Night 8: A surprise pack of a ton of prints (like, a ton) (all with slight imperfections like smudges or printer lines) (but nothing crazy) lovingly mailed to your door!!*
To enter:
Just reblog this post!  (Likes don&#8217;t count, sorry.)  And please make sure you&#8217;re following me at Roaring Softly on tumblr!  You can reblog as many times as you like.  Turns out reblogging more than once doesn&#8217;t make your name show up more than once, so no need to bother (unless you just want to help spread the word!).
Winners will be chosen randomly and notified each night of Chanukah via ask box.  If you don&#8217;t respond within 48 hours, I will choose someone else.
Also: 
Stay tuned for an exciting holiday sale in my Etsy shop coming up very soon!  Get ready to stock up on prints for all your pals this holiday season.
*Only U.S. pals will be accepted for this night because international shipping costs are a little bit ridiculous.  Sorry to be a buzz kill.
