$25.00 Gift Certificate Giveaway - and Published in Altered Arts Magazine!



It's so hard to believe today is the last day of November.  It's been such a whirlwind of a year for me between beginning college this past spring (for the first time ever), remodeling my craft studio, working on orders for my jewelry customers and the like.

I have the best customers and blog/Facebook followers.  I really do.  I have met some of the nicest people through my jewelry projects and want to say "thanks" by having a giveaway - just in time for Christmas.

I will be giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to my Etsy shop, Two Crafty Mules.  The gift certificate may be used for any ready-made item in the shop.  It may not be used on custom orders.   You can enter the giveaway by leaving a comment on this blog post, and/or by leaving a comment on the Two Crafty Mules Facebook page under the giveaway post.  Leave one comment on each site, and you will have TWO chances to win!  The deadline to leave comments is Sunday, December 15 at 11:59 p.m.  One lucky winner will be selected on Monday, December 16.  Just in time to shop for Christmas!  WOOT!  Please spread the word - tell your friends, post the giveaway on Pinterest, etc.  An additional prize will be added if we reach comments from 200 people, with additional prizes added for each 100 comments thereafter!  How awesome is that?

So - what are you waiting for?  Let the commenting begin!  :)  Good luck, everyone!

P.S.  While we are talking about freebies - who doesn't love a freebie, especially at this time of year?  One of my Christmas art doll projects is currently featured in the Altered Arts Bonus Christmas 2013 project issue.  The magazine is available for purchase - and - for a limited time only - available for FREE digital download.  Be sure to check it out and get some free Christmas project inspiration while you are at it.

Thanksgiving Bracelets

I've been a busy little beaver lately between going to school full-time, working and creating new designs.  Creating new designs has to be my favorite thing to do, though.  I can work on projects for 12 hours a day and it never feels like work to me.  Now - if I can only do it full-time for a living, that would be GREAT!  :)

In any case, here are some Thanksgiving bracelets I made for this season.  They feature wooden pieces which were decoupaged with vintage Thanksgiving images on one side, and painted on the other.  Beads which complement the painted sides surround the portrait charms.  The best part about these bracelets is that they are very lightweight and don't weigh down the arm.

In any case, if you want to see all of the new Thanksgiving bracelets I made for this season, you can check them out on my EBay or Etsy pages.

Also - if you've been following my craft room remodel project - I'm happy to tell you there will be more pics to come shortly.  The room is just about done. Thank goodness!  Stay tuned....
