Anyone else want a central location for finding exclusively etsy giveaways?

I should start with this confession: I am, at heart, lazy. I'll watch a mediocre show rather than search for a lost remote or eat a lukewarm meal rather than find the waitress to ask that i be warmed up. This same principle applies to finding giveaways--I love them, I love entering them, (I'd really love winning them, though thus far no luck), and I especially love it when the prize is a neat handmade item from a fellow shopkeep on etsy. What I don't love, however, is finding them.

Since laziness is the other mother of invention (maybe the not-evil-but-just-tired stepmother of invention?), I figured i might be able to solve this dilemma by creating a central location for finding out about etsy giveaways. To make it work, of course, I need people who do these giveaways to join in, however. So do that. 'Cause goodness knows I'm far too lazy to go tracking you down and writing you up on my own ;)

Speaking of giveaways, I've decided to edit my RME giveaway--now everyone who enters gets a prize, and there's no longer any closing date for the "contest" (guess it's not much of a contest any more either then, huh? A contest where you're guaranteed to win something for doing very little--hey, sounds perfect for my fellow lazy-kind!)

3 bits of commenty goodness:
