New pretties & 33% off jewelry!

Hello, friends! I hope that you’re all having a great week… I’d love to hear from you. 🙂

2018-02-15-Just-Listed

I’ve gotten some lovely new pieces added to the shop in the past two days. If you see something that you love, you can still use the code FLASH33 to take 33% off all non-custom jewelry. I’m also continuing to offer free US shipping on all custom orders of at least $25.

Crazy deals this week!

LogoHello, loves! I just got a new logo, my first after 7 years of doing my thing. I’d love to hear what you think of it; this beauty was made for me by Designs_by_Lane on Instagram. Pop by the shop to see the new look over there and let me know what you think.

I don’t have any new pieces for you today, but I have some great deals available for the next week. On top of extending my 25% off sale (no coupon code needed), you can still get free US S&H on all orders of at least $50. We’ve also sweetened the pot by adding a free 3-card Tarot reading with AJ or a distance Reiki session with me when you spend $50 or more. Just shoot me an email or a PM on Facebook to claim this gift. I’m also accepting custom orders for jewelry, candles, ritual kits and more!

AJ and I have the flu at the moment, but I’m getting better. I should be getting all outstanding non-custom orders shipped out this week, and will work on custom orders that have not yet been made once I’ve gotten those packages shipped out.

While I have your attention, if you have ever ordered jewelry from me or received spiritual services from me or AJ, we’d be so grateful if you’d stop by Facebook and leave feedback. Thanks so much for your support!

I hope that you all have a great day. I’m sending love and strength to each of you.

Blessings,

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.

PS: AJ and I have been offering readings and Reiki in gratitude for donations through our YouCaring fundraiser, and we’ve had great reviews so far… You can find some of them on the B&B Facebook page. We’re grateful for any support, and we’d love to provide services for you, as well.

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. ❤

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.

Fibro/Spoonie Warrior Necklace

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

Appointments up the wazoo!

Poor AJ has been incredibly unwell lately. Though I slept fitfully for twelve hours, I managed to make him an emergency appointment for tomorrow in my half-sleep — and then to call the pharmacy before the cut-off to have meds we just realized we need refilled stat delivered today, since we won’t be here when the delivery guy would be on his rounds tomorrow. Since we can’t ever seem to get all of our meds on the same schedule and we have somewhat major transportation issues most days, I can’t even begin to express how grateful we are for a pharmacy that delivers. I’m also so grateful that our prescriptions have no co-pays with Medicaid, so we don’t have to stress about whether we have funds available when they’re due. Now we just need to make an actual organized list of when they’re all due for refills so we don’t have those “Oh crap!” moments.

I also rescheduled my medical marijuana recommendation appointment for the 7th. I’m really looking forward to being all set again, since my old one expired on Christmas Eve and I really need to keep my CBD tincture around so that I can function more like a normal human being as far as cooking, cleaning and getting my work done, even if I don’t have the spoons to actually make it out of the house most days. Another thing I am beyond grateful for is the fact that I can get the tincture from a dispensary that delivers to my house, though sometimes we’re able to stop by their local shop while we’re out at doctor’s appointments.

Our next appointment after that is to pick up our controlled substance prescriptions on the 15th, and then I’ll be making an appointment to get a cortisone injection in my knee once I’ve gotten the fluid down. The prospect of having the knee surgically drained just sounds like a nightmare, and it wasn’t nearly so swollen when I was religious about icing it several times a day and taking my full arsenal of anti-inflammatories — CBD and mullein tinctures as well as ibuprofen. So that’s one of my main jobs this week, to get that swelling down. I’ve been having trouble with my right knee since Thanksgiving, when I went up and down the stairs at our hosts’ house about 15-20 times in less than 24 hours, to get things from the guest room, tour the house, check on AJ when he wasn’t feeling well, and to use the bathroom. No matter how much I’ve babied it since then, it’s been a mess. I could barely even walk around the apartment until a friend got me a compression sleeve for it.

Whenever we have appointments, barring extenuating circumstances, we go together. We act as advocates for one another because all of this chronic illness stuff is scary enough without having to deal with any part of it — but especially the potential for bad news or not being heard — alone. I also have severe brain fog and his memory is still much better than mine, so he helps me remember things, while I help him stand up for himself. He’s not very good at doing that in general, just with me — which can be frustrating when it’s unwarranted, but I try to remember to take it as a compliment because it means that I’m the one person he trusts enough to always try to be his fully authentic self around, even if it isn’t pleasant for either of us in the moment.

We have all of these appointments to get to, $60 to pay for the MMJ recommendation, and sales have been super slow. I would appreciate it so much if you could take a look at this post and consider whether you might be able to help in any way. Tomorrow is also the last day to use the code “BYE2015” to save 20% on all regularly-priced ready to ship jewelry in the shop — and there are some great already-discounted pieces in the special deals section, too. If you’re in a financial situation like ours, word of mouth costs nothing and definitely helps!

I hope you’re having a good day, lovelies. I’m going to finally have something to eat, and then try to get some beading done. If I’m lucky, I may have some new goodies to post tonight or tomorrow.

Blessings,
❤ Bri
