New giveaway & 50% off!

Hello, friends. Apologies, again, for being so quiet over here… It’s been a really rough year for me pain-wise, and I just haven’t been able to keep up as much as I’d like. I’m working on trying to take better care of myself so that I can regain greater health and be more on top of things, starting with shipping approximately every 7-10 days whenever possible. Delays may still happen when I am particularly unwell, but extended delays should be much more rare than in the past.

Hubby and I have birthdays coming up on the 9th and 13th, followed by the 2nd anniversary of our arrival in the Pacific Northwest and the 6th anniversary of the first seeds being planted for Baubles & Blessings. So much to celebrate! So, until 11:59 PM on the 13th, save 50% on the jewelry in my shop with the code “HAPPYBIRTHDAY”. (Items in the fundraiser category are excluded, as they are already priced to move. All funds from these items go straight to my MMJ fund.

Lastly is this amazing giveaway… One lucky winner will receive the goddess prayer beads, gemstone grab bag, and all of the makeup and beauty items shown. The contest will close for entries at 11:59 PM on November 30th.

Thanks so much for all of your support, darlings! I wouldn’t have made it this far without you.

Catching up: auction pieces & The Healer’s Touch

Amethyst Meditating Goddess Prayer Bead Necklace

First off, this beauty is still up for auction, ending in less than 24 hours. As I type, the high bid is $40. The various amethyst beads and Beadfreaky pendant have such lovely energy and combine so well… Whoever ends up winning this piece will be very happy with it, I believe.

There are also oodles of other pieces that I’ve already posted still available, from Feeling a Little Crochety, Pulp Street Creations and myself. Click here to visit the main fundraiser page.

I’ve recently received and listed a bunch of items from Tracey over at The Healer’s Touch. First, here is the newest auction item, a gorgeous necklace and earring set. (I didn’t realize that it was slightly crooked until after the fact — but seriously, there are other photos in the listing and none of them came close to doing this beauty any justice.)

"Dark Angel" Intricate Goldstone Necklace & Earring Set by The Healer's Touch

And here are the rest of the recently added goodies.

I’ve been busy and a bit under the weather recently, and I keep forgetting to figure out a new deal for February. Until I do, the code “HELLO2016” will take 25% off all regularly-priced ready to ship jewelry in my shop. And there are even gifts!

Free gift with all purchases!

Free Sleepytime Lip Balm & Selenite for Orders of $30 or More!

As always, I’d like to thank everyone who has donated items for this fundraiser, made donations for the gorgeous pieces that have been available, helped spread the word about the event or done anything else to support us in any way. You are all amazing, and we are so lucky to have you as part of the Baubles & Blessings family!

Much love and many blessings,
❤ Bri

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.

Amethyst Meditating Goddess Prayer Bead Necklace

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,
Bri

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,
❤ Bri

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!

Blessings,

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…

Art by Starla Moore
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,
❤ Bri

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
