Happy October! This is my favorite month of the year. The leaves are beginning to change color, the mornings and evenings are cool & crisp, and the days are still warm. I love the smells from my warm toasty kitchen as I bake apple pies, apple crisps and make applesauce. It also happens to be the month in which I was born. My birthday was Saturday, and my husband & I spent a wonderful day enjoying the nice weather and each other. We went out to dinner for all you can eat shrimp at Red Lobster (a seafood chain restaurant for anyone not familiar with it).
I have been so blessed lately with the generosity of blog friends--it is my turn now. I am going to offer several giveaways and specials associated with my Etsy shop. To begin with...
I am offering free shipping in my Etsy Shop for the whole month of October. I have already adjusted the shipping costs to zero, so the listings are ready to go. I will be starting to list my holiday french beaded flowers soon!
Here is how the giveaways will work:
You may enter one or all of the giveaways by making one comment on their individual post. If you would like to blog about the giveaway, leave a separate comment with the link for one additional chance.
The giveaways are open to everyone. Please make sure if you do not have a blog that I have a way to get in touch with you. The winner will be drawn on the date stated in each individual post by the random number generator.
A Halloween themed giveaway! This necklace is an original, one-of-a-kind piece. I created the inserts out of polymer clay. They sort of happened by accident--I could certainly never repeat these exact designs. Can you see the bat in the top piece? They have been beaded (with some techniques I learned from a flatwork book recently purchased from Beadwright), backed with leather and strung on an orange ribbon necklace.
The piece measures approximately 3 1/2" long including the bail & the necklace is adjustable from 16"-18".
