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.

Good morning, sunshines! I have a great deal for you during the rest of October. Use the code “SAMHAIN30” to save 30% on all non-custom items. Spend $50 on any single order, including custom pieces, and receive a refund of US S&H charges!
Your decision to shop with Baubles & Blessings is a decision to support a small business and a disabled artist couple working hard to make ends meet, and I appreciate you more than I have words to express. Thanks so much for your support, whether you’re a repeat customer, a signal booster, or you’re brand new to the family.

PS: I was unable to ship last week due to a flare brought on by storm preparation and celebrating the 10 year anniversary of our first date. I’m aiming to ship again this Wednesday.

We have not yet met the goal for our med fundraiser, so I am extending the offer through the 13th. Use the code “MEDS” to save 30% on any non-custom jewelry order in my shop. Spend $50 after the discount (not including S&H), and I will refund all US shipping charges.
I also have an auction coming up, from the 13th through the 16th. AJ’s birthday is coming up on Monday, mine is Friday, and the 15th is the one year anniversary of our arrival in Tacoma. We’re hoping that when all is said and done, we might be able to have our basic needs covered for the month and have something left over for some sort of birthday treat, like an inexpensive meal out or a visit to a movie theater. I’ll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed for that.
I expect I’ll have some bargain-hunting holiday shoppers at the event. It’s a great chance to snag a deal or five while helping a hardworking disabled couple stay afloat. I generally list everything with a starting price at or below half of retail, and many pieces end up going for insanely low prices. If you enjoy my work but you’ve never participated in one of my auctions, I highly recommend checking it out. Even if you don’t have funds for this one, you’ll see how it works… And I’ll also be doing other fun stuff, like door prizes, this time around. 😀
Thanks, as always, for being here, being you and being awesome. I really appreciate you taking the time to see what I’m up to!
Much love and many blessings,

I’m so sorry that it’s been so long since I’ve updated here! I’ve been getting overwhelmed when trying to post an update, so I think the easiest way to get you caught up is to share a post that was published on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.
I have since gotten caught up on shipping, and I am planning to ship again at the end of next week. I also have a fairly quick turnaround time for most custom orders at the moment. Please get in touch as soon as possible if you’re interested in a custom piece as a holiday gift, to ensure that I am able to ship in time for whichever holiday(s) you may celebrate, and be sure to tell me in advance when your deadline is.
I also have a 30% off deal running through the end of the week! As many of you know, I am a medical marijuana patient. I go through about one small bottle of CBD tincture weekly. I can’t afford much, but the small amount that I take helps me function and get through most days without crazy amounts of pain. The policies of the dispensary that has delivered to me for months have changed, and I now basically have to order in bulk or pay exorbitant delivery fees for my usual small orders. So I’m looking to raise funds for three bottles, which would mean no fee.
At the same time, about half of the supplements and OTC meds that we take on a daily basis are about to run out. Neither of us will be able to function well if we run out of staples like OTC painkillers, decongestants and meds that help us avoid IBS flares.
We sincerely appreciate any and all help getting the word out about this fundraiser! I’m also running low on beading wire and may be running out temporarily, but I will do my best to get some new goodies posted while this event is happening, starting tonight. If you want to help but can’t afford to shop at the moment or nothing I have listed in the shop speaks to you, please remember that interacting with recent posts on my Facebook page helps a lot with boosting the signal. In particular, I would appreciate it so much if you’d consider liking, commenting on and/or sharing this post.
Thank you so much for your time and attention! I’m hoping to be fully back on the ball soon. 🙂

Hello, lovelies! I want to make sure that you all know that you can save 25% on all ready to ship pieces in my shop through Friday night; just use the code “FLASH25” at checkout. Spend $50 and I’ll even refund your full US S&H charge. I also try to include little gifts in all of my outgoing packages… Right now, those gifts are sodalite tumbles and randomly-selected tea. 🙂 Click here to visit my shop and get your browse on. Most of the pieces in the collage are still available, as are some pieces not shown here.

These beauties are all new to my shop, and they’re all quite reasonably priced… Plus you can get free US S&H through the end of the month, on any regularly-priced order of at least $15! Just use the code “FREESHIP” during checkout. 🙂 I’d love to hear what you think of these new pieces!
I also have a wee favor to ask. If you’re on Facebook, could you pop by my page and show my recent posts some love to help keep my voice heard? (Many folks also find it useful to friend or follow my public personal account, where I share posts from my page to boost the signal.) Thanks so much for your support!
If you’re one of the folks frustrated with the new FB algorithms and how they affect what makes it into your feed, please remember that I’m also on Instagram, Pinterest (which I haven’t been great about posting to lately) and Twitter… And I’ll have a brand new email newsletter that you can sign up for soon!
