A Sale a Day Until Thanksgiving

I don't know if you are a Facebook fan but this may be the time to become one. Every day until Thanksgiving I am going to be offering a sale to all my Facebook fans. Some days it may be a discount on a particular color. Some days it may just be some item that is marked down or a BOGO sale.

So stop on over and become a fan and join in the fun.

While you are at it, you need to stop in and see my friend's blog. She is promoting my shop while doing a blog giveaway. She makes these beautiful aprons and sells them on Etsy. She is giving one away on November 4th. So go enter today!

The response to my blog giveaway was awesome. Thank you to everyone who commented, promoted, and "liked" me on Facebook. Thanks also to SL, for locking down my thread and giving me more attention than I would have ever had. I had so many entries that I had to find a bigger hat to put them all in.

I would have taken a picture of my cute little girls pulling the names, but my camera broke this week. You will have to wait until next time to see them. I also felt bad that I only needed two names drawn. My four year old wasn't a bit happy about it either, so I ended up adding one more winner into the mix. Instead of one $10 gift certificate, I decided to give two.

The winner of the $25 gift certificate is a fan on Facebook and a customer. Congratulations to Grayce Soaplady.

The TWO winners of the $10 gift certificates are MsBrita and Kristi in the Country.

Congratulations to all three of you. Just let me know when you place your order that you are redeeming the coupons from the October giveaway. If you didn't leave your comment here and didn't know you had even entered, remember I was keeping track of FB comments, as well as those that purchased something this past week. Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement.

Happy shopping!

Entering Back into the Blog Zone with a Jewelry Giveaway

What better way to get back into blogging than to have a giveaway. Don't you think it is about time?

Thanks to all the lists my children are creating lately, my mind has been a little bit on Christmas this past week (they are even ahead of the stores this year!). I am thinking that others may be gearing up for it too. Here is a chance to earn a little extra money.

Enter my giveaway to earn a chance at a gift certificate. There will be two given away, a $25 gift certificate and a $10 gift certificate (good in either one of my etsy shops).

You can enter multiple times by doing any or all of the following.

How to enter:

1. Visit my shops and leave a comment here telling your favorite thing in one or both of my shops.

2. Blog it! Then tell me.

3. Post it on facebook. Then tell me you posted.

4. Post a link to my facebook fan page on your facebook page. Then tell me here.

5. Become a fan on facebook. And of course tell me here.

6. Post it on Twitter. And you guessed it...tell me!

For more chance to win, please leave additional comments for each extra thing you do. Please make sure I can find you again or you may not know you won.

If you happen to make a purchase while the giveaway is going on, I will automatically enter you in the giveaway for each item you purchase. You do not have to purchase to enter.

I'll pick a random winner the morning of October 23rd. I will post it here and attempt to contact you. Have fun!

Now to see what I have been making! The first two things are sterling silver and are listed in my Ocean Breeze Design shop.

Tide Pool Series

These are some new listings in my mompotter shop. I am currently listing new things every day or close to it.

Bookmarks are going fast and they are so fun to make. There are more to come!

I have been working in series a lot lately. Here is one from the October Splendor Series.

Don't forget you can enter in any of the ways I listed and you can enter more than once a day. This giveaway closes on October 22, 2010.

Did you know there were four verses?

The Star-Spangled Banner

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:'
Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
