Whoo-hoo! My First Blog Giveaway!

Update: Giveaway is now closed.

Hi there, folks! I want to thank all of you for your support and lovely comments, which encouraged me to keep on blogging. So, I hereby announce the start of my 1st blog giveaway ever! This is a good chance for you, my loyal readers and followers to win some beautiful handmade items for yourselves! Two generous Etsy sellers have agreed to sponsor their handmade items for this giveaway and I want to thank them right here, right now. Coincidentally, both their names sound the same! They are…


Kellie from Art Box Designs loves to design and create handmade items, especially fused glass jewelry, jewelry supplies, vintage goodies and other fun things.

On your left is the Sweet Pink Fused Glass Pendant, which is one of my favourites from her shop. This sells for only 11 US dollars. She has other wonderful items, all sold at affordable prices.

>> Picasso Jasper Pendant with Copper Wire wrap $15.00
This beautiful Heart Cut Jasper with a copper Bail with a free hanging copper embellishment is very striking.

For our August giveaway, Kellie is offering one of my lucky readers a Sweet blue affordable fused glass pendant and your choice of ONE customized digital art from her shop. These goodies are worth $12.00

Sweet blue affordable fused glass pendant
A touch of dichroic with bits of blue oval pendant with a silver plated bail and 16" Silver Chain. A great gift for a grad, birthday or any occasion. The pendant measures about 1" x 1" The glass has been fused and slowly cooled and annealed for strength and durability. A unique pendant!

Digital Art Customized for you


Kelly is the owner of The Green Lizard on Etsy. She has a great deal of Eco-friendly bags and accessories listed in her shop. Each Friday, an item from her shop will be listed for twenty cents plus shipping. So, make sure you check out her shop if you want to grab that particular item for 20 cents!

Flower Pin - Eco Friendly - Recycled Silk $9.50

This lovely Eco Friendly Flower Pin is crafted from recycled silk fabric in a rich magenta and a vintage black button making it an eco chic accessory. You can pin it to a tote, purse, backpack, top, jacket, hat, or scarf to make a unique fashion statement.


Pencil Wrap Zoo Animals $14.00

With the adorable print, this Pencil Wrap Zoo Animals is definitely a hot item in her Back to School series. This is a must-have for school kids who love colouring!


Turquoise Delight Tote Bag $24.00


The Turquoise Delight Tote Bag is stylish and practical, and absolutely perfect for everyday use. The main fabric is a 100% heavy cotton 1967 vintage print. The print is a white leaf and flower pattern on a turquoise background with green accents. Kelly is offering free shipping on this bag to buyers with US addresses.
