Holiday Shopping, Events, and News!

It's beginning to look a lot like..... Turkey time, you thought I was going to say Christmas! Can you believe it's just around the corner AND Christmas is only a whopping 51 days away.
I've already started my Christmas shopping, I don't wait until the last minute for this time of year. While the kids are at school and my husband is working out of town, I find time to work my crafts!

I've designed some new Autumn pieces, which some are posted on my Etsy sight and am creating more for the winter season.

Look for the EtsyMom Black Friday Sale, Nov 26-29. More details to come, but there will be plenty of items available from all over the country.
Also, there will be an additional blog hop giveaway called: Holly Day Blog Hop Thread Dec 4-11. You can visit blogs from participating crafters and sign up for fabulous prizes and to get fabulous holiday inspirations/ideas (recipes, crafts, etc....) All you have to do is leave a comment, to be entered in the drawing for a prize. There will be chances for additional entries as well. Stop back to find more details as the time approaches!

It's going to be exciting!

TRUNK SHOW and MORE........

Where did the summer go, it's September already and the kids are going back to school and the weather will eventually start to turn cool! Here in Minnesota we did have a nice long summer with a snowless March and warm weather by April so we can't complain to much.

I'm hosting my first Trunk Show Open House on September 9th, and yes there is still plenty of time to shop that day before the kick off, for all you die-hard Vikings Fans!
I will have plenty of new items for display as well as wine and chocolate for your taste buds.

The casual display show starts at 3:30 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m.. I will be holding a "draw a ticket" type of show, where upon your purchase, you can pick a discount from the box. Discounts will range from 5% up to 50% with one wild card for 55% off! It will be exciting to see who gets the wild card.
This ticket event will also happen on-line for the entire month of September, I will have my daughters draw a discount and refund the amount to your Paypal account (or if paid by check, send $$ back to you). It's a great way to get your accessories for your Autumn/Winter wardrobe, shop for Birthdays, Anniversaries or even Christmas (since that is 114 days away from Sept. 1st), plus it's fun to see the pieces you might like, in person.
Come on over on the 9th, stop in and say HI, make a purchase or custom order a piece or two.

It was the summer of 10!

Standing on your mama's porch.....those were the best days of my life.....back in the summer of 69! Remember those words from the Bryan Adams album, it so reminds me of hot summer days/nights, and wow, are those days upon us here in Minnesota! I haven't been able to do any shows this summer, due to my hubby being out of town working, but I do have some fabulous summer specials going now and into September. Don't forget, from now through the end of July, take 25% off anything purchase over $18.

August will bring back FREE shipping with any order.

September is a "draw a ticket from the box" month. I will be hosting a Trunk Show in early September where I will have a drawing with your purchase. You draw a ticket from the box to see what % you can take off the price! Percentage will range from 5% up to 50% off your purchase. For on-line orders, I will have my daughters draw a ticket from the box (just to be fair) and will refund the amount toward your paypal account.

Wow, March has surely brought spring early in Minnesota! Although with the snow melt comes a lot of dirty looking ground cover, you can count on bright spring green buds and fresh flowers soon.
Check out just some of my new spring designs, something is sure to catch your eye. March is half-way through, but catch my special:
Buy one or more at $60 and get a FREE $20 item or less (or have me design one to match)
take 25% off a second purchased item.
April will have an Easter and spring sale as well.
Enjoy that warm weather as much as me!!!

January into February into March....winter blues vs. whites?

I love the winter time leading up to Christmas and into January. After the holiday rush, we have the super bowl to look forward to, my birthday, Valentine's Day, President's Day and then along comes the hump month-March! I look at March as being VERY snowy for Minnesota, but it's also when the snow starts melting and spring starts everything new again. I really enjoyed the snowstorm we had in December and many more fluffy snows to come (since I missed them a LOT while in Hawaii for 2 years). I sprung a new creative surge as well, many new items have been added to my shop, I've been busy a few times a week creating new beauties for you to wear. Here's just one:

I have some GREAT new deals in the next few months leading up to spring. In January I'm offering a 25% DISCOUNT ON THE 2ND ITEM, WHEN YOU PURCHASE A 1ST ITEM AT REGULAR PRICE. (2ND ITEM MUST BE EQUAL OR LESS VALUE)
Also, I've reduced my prices on ALL jewelry and will from this point forward-stiff competition! Look at my Clearance section, I've reduced items from 20-50%

Happy 2010
