Auction ending tomorrow, plus giveaways!

Hello, sweeties!

Apologies for being so quiet lately. I’ve been dealing with a lot of brain fog and little downtime, so I’ve been a bit frazzled and forgetting to send out my usual updates. I’m better about posting on Facebook, if you aren’t already and would like to connect with me or join my event group, where my twice monthly auctions are held.

I’ve got an auction happening right now in the event group, ending tomorrow night! There have been 56 items listed; 52 are still available, and 39 of those still have zero bids… We’re still over $300 from the goal that we need to reach in order to make our ends meet, so signal boosts are greatly appreciated. There’s also three contests running, and so many beautiful pieces infused with lots of love and Reiki. Please join us and consider sharing my work with friends who you think might dig it.

I have giveaways in every event, and I’m hoping to be able to start offering free group Reiki sessions again soon. I’ve just been really frazzled and stretched a bit thin lately, so I haven’t felt that I had the time and energy. I’ll let you know as soon as I have my next session lined up. In the meantime, I am still doing one on one sessions and AJ is offering readings, in thanks for a $10 or more donation toward his drawing tablet fund. We’re almost halfway to that specific goal. Please feel free to reach out on Facebook or respond to this email if you’d like more info.

As always, AJ and I are so grateful that you’re here! We are so very glad to have you as part of the B&B family. Much love and only the brightest blessings to you, friends!

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.

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.

Fundraiser Auction & Crazy Sale!

Good morning, friends! I wanted to make sure that you all know about some great deals currently available, all of which will help add to my medical marijuana fund.

2016-08-22-MMJ4Bri

Click on the above image for more info on anything shown here, to get your bid on, or to be among the first to see when new items are added. If you would be interested in adding goods or services to the fundraiser, please let me know. Most of the vendors involved thus far have donated 100% of proceeds from their items, but that is NOT required at all!

Also, it’s not too late to save 50% on ready to ship jewelry or 25% on gemstones and other goodies in my shop! Just use the applicable code at checkout — RAIDHSE25 or RAIDHSE50, respectively. “Raidhse” is Irish for abundance! 🙂

And, of course, if you’d like to make a contribution to my GoFundMe campaign, that would also be so very appreciated. In return, my hubby and I are offering near-daily group distance Reiki starting in about 4-6 weeks for everyone who donates. Just let me know if you’d prefer to opt out.

Catching Up, Deals & Epic Giveaway!

Heya, friends! I just realized that it has been quite a while since I posted here. After noticing some problematic side effects, I’ve been going through quite a difficult patch pain-wise while tapering off of Cymbalta under the care of a doctor who doesn’t seem to believe that the withdrawal is a big deal. Without much help, it’s been difficult to function many days. I’ve already gone from 60 mg down to 20 mg, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer until I’m actually starting to feel human again. I am grateful that I have at least been able to turn to MMJ; on higher doses of Cymbalta, my tolerance was so low that I had to stop taking THC meds and they are one of the few things that have kept me sane during this transition.

Most of the beaded pieces in my shop have been recently reduced. The entirety of my Maryjane Collection has been priced to move for a while now and I’m not sure why it hasn’t. I guess I’m just not reaching my target audience with them. Either way, what’s left is affordable to begin with and insanely cheap when combined with my 20% off coupon, “MARCH20” — which, as you may have guessed, expires at the end of the month. At this point, I probably won’t make many more marijuana-themed pieces unless I get custom orders for them.

I’m also offering some other special deals…

Special offers through 3/31!

And have you seen my epic giveaway? There are two prize packs worth over $85 each, including new products that I’m thinking of bringing to the shop. Follow this link for full details on prizes and how to enter.

Epic spoonie/witchy giveaway!

I’ll keep trying to get better about posting here, and if you’re on Instagram or Facebook, I invite you to follow me there as well. I post daily on Facebook and am also pretty active on Instagram. I try to also keep up with Pinterest, but it hasn’t been playing nice with my phone lately.

Lots of love and many blessings to you, friends! I hope that your spring is off to a beautiful start.

More new pretties for a good cause!

I had a few spoons available for easy work tonight, so I made some adorable new thank you gifts for the fundraiser happening now over on Facebook. Included among them are some exclusive pendants made by Art by Starla Moore just for our fundraisers last year when we were working to move from Tennessee to the Pacific Northwest; I’d misplaced the last few and just found them again. Perfect timing!

Hubby and I are both disabled. I have fibro along with PCOS and a number of related issues, while he is still on his diagnosis journey. We are both only able to work from home, and we are blessed that he has a steady part-time job to which he telecommutes. It’s been a pretty rough few months for us with a shockingly dead holiday season for my shop. We’re working hard to find ways to cover things like transportation to our many medical appointments, small personal/hygiene needs as they arise, meds not covered by insurance (particularly CBD tincture, which adds up at a $30 bottle weekly), and food for the portion of the month our SNAP benefits do not cover.

Your support — whether through purchases via my shop, contributions to our fundraisers or helping to boost the signal on Facebook or elsewhere — is so very much appreciated and makes a huge difference!

Much love and many blessings,
❤ Bri
