Hiya, lovelies! I wanted to give y’all a quick update…
My deadline for Mother’s Day orders is still May 2nd, and my current special runs through the end of April. (Use the code “MOM” To save 20%! Spend $50 and I’ll also refund US S&H charges.) I am donating 10% of this month’s sales, split between True Colors Fund and The Autistic Self Advocacy Network.
I’d hoped to have questionnaires sent out today for fundraiser rewards, but I have some health-related anxiety to contend with at the moment, and I don’t think I’ll be able to focus on getting the questionnaires finished and sent out until this coming weekend. I’m so sorry for the delay!
On the other hand, I’ve been catching up on custom orders, announcing prize winners and a new giveaway with an awesome prize, so things are happening behind the scenes here… I just haven’t been able to get quite as much done as I’d hoped the past few days.
If you missed the Facebook announcement, here are some of my most recent winners! If you’re one of them, please send me a PM on Facebook to claim your prize. Each month’s first prize winner gets a $25 credit. Everyone else gets their choice of a coupon good for 25% off their next order, or $10 off a $20 purchase. Coupons expire after two months.
Thank you all so much for your support and understanding!
Much love and many blessings,

Aside from Michelle’s custom owl prayer beads, these beauties have been added to the shop! Any of these would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift; the code “MOM” will take 20% off your order through the end of the month. ❤ I’d love to hear what you think of the new additions!

My Facebook reach has been ridiculous, but I’m still in the same predicament where most of my customers and fans follow me on FB — where I have many times more followers than I do anywhere else — and not on any other sites. I’ll have a PO box soon and will then be able to set up a newsletter, since a mailing address is required by anti-spam laws and I’m not comfortable posting my home address publicly. But in the meantime, I’m still having a hard time reaching the folks who are already part of the community I’ve worked hard to build on Facebook — and every time you visit my page and show my posts some love, you help get my posts into more feeds. Thanks so much for your support!
Congrats to the lovely Elizabeth Miller, who just won the rainbow chakra necklace! Good luck to everyone who enters the new contest. ❤

Hello, lovelies! Now that things are finally settling down a bit for us, I’m gearing up to FINALLY celebrate reaching 13,000 FB page fans! Since I was born on the 13th of November and 13 has always been my lucky number, I’ve really been looking forward to this.
First up, I’m giving away this lovely rainbow necklace/prayer beads, featuring a sweet hand-painted chakra pendant by Windy Paints. I always love working with Windy’s pendants, and I was so glad that she wanted to take part!
Enter here. Good luck!
This contest will close for entries at 11:59 PM PST on April 21st, 2015. The winner will be announced and contacted via email within 72 hours.
Next week, I’ll be giving away another piece made with a stunning pendant by The Healers Touch – A Journey In Healing! Keep an eye out for that, as well as game nights and some other fun stuff that I’ll be announcing soon, along with my active fan rewards and fan appreciation winners from the past few months. Lots of prizes and fun to come over the next six weeks!
Please remember that your interaction with the giveaway post — and others on FB — helps boost our signal. 😉 Thanks so much for being so amazingly supportive!

It’s been a while since I had a giveaway for y’all, so I’ve decided to rectify that by giving away TWO collaborative pieces in the second half of April! Here’s a sneak peek at the prizes that I just finished up tonight,,,
The piece on the left features a fancy beadwork leaf pendant by my friend Tracey at The Healers Touch – A Journey In Healing. This necklace combines labradorite, peridot, serpentine, gold freshwater pearls, glass crystals, metal accent beads, and pressed glass Eye of Providence beads.
The necklace on the right features a sweet hand-painted chakra pendant by my pal Windy over at Windy Paints. This piece combines faceted Czech glass beads with clear quartz and pewter accent beads.
I’d love to hear what you think! Which of these are you most excited about entering to win? Keep an eye on my Facebook page and/or my posts here on the blog over the next week for more info on how to enter both contests… And while you’re at it, please pop over to my co-conspirators’ FB pages to show them some love, too!
