Beadfreaky inspiration & spare spoons!

In the past handful of days, I’ve taken inspiration from the gorgeous pendants made over at Beadfreaky, as well as some spoon pendants and charms. Here’s what’s come of that so far. 🙂

The above pieces have been listed in my shop — where you can still save 25% on all regularly-priced ready to ship pieces through the end of the month with the code “HELLO2016” — and the piece below is now up for auction.

I’m also excited to share these new spare spoon pieces! The first two are in my shop; the others are listed in the fundraiser.

I’d love to hear what you think of the new goodies! Thanks so much for reading. ❤

Blessings,

New fundraiser pieces – awareness ribbons & butterflies!

I was inspired to make these purple butterfly pieces a couple of days ago. There are still two left with wee black glass crystals, and one with lavender crystals. They’re super adjustable; I’m modeling one at the shortest length and one at the longest length. (My neck is about 17″.) Visit the FB fundraiser to snag yours, read more or see what else is available. (If you’re more the grab bag type, our GoFundMe campaign is still open as well, or I am happy to barter items from our Amazon wishlist for credit to my shop.)

Adjustable Purple Butterfly Necklaces

After recently posting my fibro warrior pendants, I got a LOT of requests for pink ribbon pieces. Here are the first of those! They can also be found in the FB fundraiser.

So far, the fundraisers have raised $349 this month — $174 in donations for jewelry and other gifts; $155 in auction items and $20 from the GoFundMe. Huge thanks to everyone who has had a hand in making that happen, from spreading the word to donating funds or items, bidding, etc. I am so grateful for all of your support while things have been so slow for us.

I apologize for not posting much recently. I’ve just been exhausted most of the time lately, and celebrating small victories when they arise.

Much love and many blessings,

Hemp wish bracelets by Pulp Street Creations

I added these gorgeous wish bracelets to the Facebook fundraiser last night — they’re all $5-$10. Some ship with a stamp for free; others require $2.50 upgraded shipping, which is available for all of the bracelets and includes tracking. Huge thanks to my dear friend Shauna at Pulp Street Creations for donating all of these!

The current auctions, for the gorgeous OOAK felted bags made by Monica, are ending in less than 48 hours! RSVP for the fundraiser to get updates and be eligible for the door prize, to be announced.

Check out the main Baubles & Blessings Facebook page and/or Instagram for some new customer pics and other gems!

Auction items ending 1/22

I’ve added some lovely items donated by talented friends to our Facebook fundraiser, all with starting bids about half of their retail value. As I type, two of the new pieces have no bids; the others just one and two, respectively.

There are also still oodles of B&B pieces up for grabs, made just for this event, as well as items from the following wonderful artists…

Feeling a Little Crochety

Not to mention the grab bags and other goodies available via the GoFundMe page. And there are other artists to be announced, as well! RSVP for the event to stay on top of updates as they are posted.

It’s been a quiet weekend in recovery mode for me after a dear friend helped me get caught up on grocery shopping Thursday. I’m hoping to get some beading done in the next few days, particularly during our flamekeeping shift toward the end of the week. I’m looking forward to having more new pieces to share with you, and I hope that you’ve all had your preference of an exciting or restful weekend.

Much love and many blessings,

Fundraisers… Plus save 33%, tonight only!

Hello, friends!

I want to thank everyone who has contributed in any way to either of our fundraisers. Without your help, we’d be in a much worse place at the moment.

Unfortunately, between my shop and fundraisers on GoFundMe and Facebook, I’ve had less than $200 come in during the first half of January. If you can help in any way — from a purchase in my shop or a donation in exchange for jewelry to spreading the word about my work — we would appreciate it so very much!

Fibro/Spoonie Warrior Necklace with New Braided Faux Leather Cord

If you’ve fallen in love with my fibro/spoonie warrior pendants — or any of the others available in the FB fundraiser — but not the organza cords, I now have these braided faux leather cords available. Please add $2 to your donation and let me know by commenting in the FB fundraiser that you’d like the cord swap. (I can also make the spoon pendants with other ribbon colors on request!)

We are still in dire need of several clothing items and some health-related items. If you’re able to purchase any of the above items from our Amazon wish list, I’d be more than happy to set up a gift code in thanks.

Today is also the last day to use the members-only coupon code to save 33% on all regularly priced ready to ship pieces in my shop. If you aren’t already a member, you can join my Facebook group here.

Much love and many blessings,
Bri

New goodies!

First, I am super excited to share my new fibro warrior/spoonie pendants. I’ve made the first batch with purple ribbons, but the ribbon color and cord color/type are customizable. Check out the listing in the fundraiser for more info.

I’ve also added several auction items donated by ZenithJade Creations, all starting at just $1 plus shipping.

And some sweet new lightweight wooden pendant designs, too.

I also made a beaded piece for the shop a few days ago. I’m very pleased with how this one turned out, so sparkly and sweet! Remember, you can use the code “HELLO2016” to save 25% on all regularly priced ready to ship jewelry in my shop. (In other words, the coupon is not applicable to pieces in the “special deals” section or custom items.)

I’d absolutely love to hear what you think of the new goodies. Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday!

MMJ, new jewelry & spoons!

Hello, friends!

Our Facebook fundraiser is still puttering along, and I’ve added a few new new rewards. I’ll be adding even more new goodies over the next few days.

So far, we’ve raised $70 in the first week of January, and I have had one shop sale for $14.50. My visit to renew my MMJ recommendation today, along with gas money for the friend who took me, has us tapped out completely… But the good news is that the new provider was super nice, and I’m all set for another year.

We do have more medical appointments coming up, as well as a dwindling amount of CBD tincture, so I’d appreciate it so very much if you’d check out the above fundraiser, consider getting a grab bag via our GoFundMe page, check out the shop — where you can use the code “HELLO2016” to save 25% on all regularly priced ready to ship goodies — or help spread the word about any of the above.

If you’re not moved by any of the items in the fundraisers or shop at the moment, I’d appreciate it so very much if you’d consider whether you might be able to help with a health-related or clothing item from our wishlist. Neither of us has anything resembling appropriate clothing to wear out in cold, wet, windy winter weather except for one heavy skirt. Neither of us owns a coat or even a jacket, just hooded sweathshirts. My only shoes are sandals. I’d be more than happy to send you a gift code in return; just send me a PM on Facebook or email me.

Oh, I almost forgot! I got these awesome antique spoon bowl pendants in the mail today, and I can’t wait to show you what I’m going to do with them! I am so excited. 😀

Spoon Pendants

Many thanks to everyone who has been supporting us in our move, trying to help us stabilize, and/or supported my business. Y’all really, truly mean the world to us.

Warm wishes and bright blessings,
Bri
