Happy Monday, and Happy Labor Day!
I’m thrilled to have a 3 day weekend right now, getting all the things ready for the shop launch tomorrow!
It feels a little crazy – as it’s getting closer, I’m realizing that there are lots of small details (that add up to big details) to figure out. But I’m having a blast figuring them out. (I was telling someone this week, launching a shop is a little like a 3rd child – it’s something I’ve thought about doing this for a long time (the shop, not more children), and then jumping in has been a little scary but very exciting. As I get closer to launch day, I have that mix of being ready and being entirely NOT ready – much like I felt when my children were due. And I’m getting less sleep – though definitely more than with a newborn, thank goodness!) This is such a fun time, and I’m excited that you’re going along the journey with me. I appreciate your support!
So, onto some business:
Thank you so much for the wonderful response to the giveaway! There were a total of 38 entries. I used Random.org to select a number, and here is the result:
Congratulations, Erika! I will be emailing you shortly to get your address so I can send jewelry your way!
So, if you’re feeling a little bummed that you didn’t win, here’s an offer for you to still feel like a winner!
If you order something in the shop this week – a necklace or an item of vintage clothing – you will receive a free pair of earrings! Now these aren’t just cheap freebies – every pair is made from vintage and/or new beads and is finished with sterling silver or 14K gold filled wire. This style of earrings will eventually be sold in my shop, but for this week only, you can get them FREE with your order. (Order must be placed by Sunday, September 7th, 11:59 Pacific Time, to receive free earrings. Styles of free earrings will vary, but I promise to pick out a pretty pair just for you!)
Lastly, if you still haven’t subscribed to the newsletter and want to, click here to get signed up. I will be sending out an email via newsletter when the shop is up and running on Tuesday, maybe with a little something extra for you!
PS – My sewing machine is home! Hallelujah! So while this week is probably going to be a little crazy, I’m hoping to squeeze some sewing time in and have a new project for you by next Monday.
