Deals, giveaways & Reiki, oh my!

Hiya, lovelies!

My February auction was a success, and to thank everyone who helped by bidding, buying, signal boosting and/or sending good mojo, I’ve got two giveaways running in my event group now. You do need to be a member in order to enter, but all group members receive at least one free entry for every contest I run.

2019-02-19-CollageI will also soon begin holding contests specifically for folks who receive my email newsletter. Sign up here to be among the first to find out when this new feature is implemented. You’ll also receive emails when I’m hosting auctions or free group distance Reiki sessions, and when I offer various deals. (My next Reiki session will be coming up soon!) I never send more than three emails per week.

I sometimes forget to post here because I don’t get a lot of traffic or interaction on this blog compared to other venues, but I’d love to change that. In the meantime, if you want to see more from me, you can also connect via Facebook or Instagram.

For the moment, I’m offering 25% off all handmade items in my shop when you use the code AUCTION25 at checkout.

Thanks so much for your support, friends! I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Blessings,
Bri

Eep! It’s been a while.

Oops! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Since I last wrote here, I’ve been trying to find ways to reach more people outside of Facebook, but for some reason I keep forgetting to post here. Maybe it’s because people rarely interact with my posts on WordPress, so I’m not even sure that I’m reaching anyone. (If you do see my posts and you want to see more, please let me know!) I have been slowly adding more features to my website, where my shop is located, and also trying to get back into the habit of posting more frequently on Instagram. I’ve also started an email newsletter and am encouraging folks to follow or friend me on Facebook, as it’s become so difficult to reach page followers anymore.

The big news right now is that I’ve got an auction running in my event group, and it’s ending tomorrow evening. Bidding for most items starts at a 40% discount, and more than half of the included items haven’t had a single bid yet. This would be a great opportunity to treat yourself or shop for a special gift at a great price.

If anyone is still out there seeing my posts, thanks for being here! I appreciate your support so very much.

Happy new year: updates & huge discount!

Hello, my dears. It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? The past couple of years have been rough for me, with new chronic hand pain brought on by drugs prescribed for my fibromyalgia. I’m off of that poison now, but they’ve done their damage and I’m still learning every day how to do the best I can as I slowly heal. I’m still been working on new pieces as I can, I’ve just been struggling to keep up with updates on multiple sites. In particular, I’ve been focusing on Facebook. I plan to start updating here and on Instagram more in the new year.

If you’re not yet connected with me on Facebook, you can do any of the following…

Follow my business page; follow or friend my personal page for more updates with recent algorithm changes; join my event group where I hold monthly auctions; or join my other group, where I post sneak peeks and more.

For those of you who haven’t been seeing much of anything from me, here are some of the pieces I’ve been working on recently. I’d love to hear what you think!

I have an incredible offer going right now, if you’re looking for a special new piece of jewelry… Some of the above pieces are still available, along with others not shown here. Just use the code HAPPYNEWYEAR to take 40% off all regularly priced jewelry in my shop.  Please feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in discussing a custom piece; the best ways to do so are via Facebook PM or emailing through the shop.

I hope that 2017 has been as gentle with you and your loved ones as possible, especially if you are in the US, considering the chaos that is currently trying to swallow the United States whole. I send you love and wish you compassion, opportunity and only the brightest of blessings in the year to come.

What a long, strange road it’s been.

Hello, friends! It’s sure been a while since I posted here, hasn’t it? The same was true of everywhere but Facebook until I started posting on Instagram again recently.

I’ve been dealing with a lot of brain fog and physical limitations for the past year, and I strongly suspect that everything has continued to be so difficult because of lingering side effects from my time on Cymbalta. I’m very happy to say that I’m finally getting more functionality back, thanks to eating as healthily as I can manage, figuring out which supplements help me the most, becoming a Reiki practitioner, starting to make my own essential oil blends, and using small amounts of MMJ to keep my pain from becoming unbearable. It’s been a long, hard road away from the pharmaceuticals that I’d hoped would help give me my life back. I’m now taking the reins myself when it comes to my fibro and chronic pain, and it feels amazing to be healing.

I’ve been doing monthly auctions to help make ends meet over in my event group on Facebook. There’s one happening right now, ending Thursday evening. There are still many pieces without any bids. If you have a moment. pop over and join the group so you’ll be ready to bid if something tickles your fancy — I’ll be adding even more items today and possibly tomorrow. Here’s a peek at some of the items…

SOS! I need your help, friends.

Friends, I seriously need your help! I’ve been having to take less and less MMJ because I’ve had so little funds coming in — I’ve had one $3 sale in the past week — and it just isn’t enough relief to keep up with my business page, making new pieces and doing chores. I need your help in order to keep functioning!
 
You can help by doing any of the following…
– Visit my GoFundMe page; consider making a contribution or sharing. Everyone who donates will receive distance group Reiki services, starting in the next few weeks.
 
– Join my Facebook group; consider purchasing or sharing available goods and services.
 
– Stop by my Facebook page, check out recent posts and deals, and consider boosting my signal by getting interactive. Find coupons and save up to 50% on everything in my shop!
 
Prayers, candles and good mojo in general are also appreciated! Thanks so much to everyone who has been offering us support in any way. It means so much to me and AJ. ❤

Thank you!

2016-08-26-ThankYouHello, friends! ❤ This week’s auction ended earlier tonight, and just about everyone’s paid up. Huge thanks to everyone who placed bids, purchased items or services donated by the amazing folks who have contributed their time and wares, and/or helped to spread the word!

I was able to borrow from our grocery fund in order to restock while we were out with friends on Tuesday, and I am now set for meds until the end of next week. The latest auction purchases even paid back the grocery fund for that loan, so that we’ll have that need taken care of tomorrow. Now I just need to work on scraping up the funds for the next MMJ restock — any contribution to my GoFundMe campaign means that you’ll be included in near-daily group distance Reiki in the near future, unless you choose to opt out.

I am of course working on some ways that I hope will help us to become more self-sufficient over time, and a big part of that is figuring out how we are going to move ourselves to Oregon, where we’ll be able to grow our own medicine in a state run by people who have more compassion and empathy for patients on limited incomes who need this medicine — and they also have a separate MMJ system that survived the legalization of recreational marijuana. We were just blindsided by how much this expense increased literally overnight when WA closed down all dispensaries, and we need some help while we figure things out.

Thanks again, everyone! Whatever form your support has taken, we appreciate it and we appreciate you. 🙂

Much love and many blessings,
Bri

PS: You can still use the code RAIDHSE50 to take 50% off jewelry through Sunday, or RAIDHSE25 for 25% off everything else in my shop!
