I think it is time for a giveaway!


Last week, I posted that I would be having a fundraiser, of sorts, to both raise funds and garner attention for Miracle Horse Rescue (MHR). (You can read that post here) To date, I have sold over 25 pieces of jewelry! Many of my "online friends" have been kind enough to share my many posts to Facebook - THANK YOU! And, many of the jewelry purchases have been from fellow jewelry designers - I am so humbled and grateful for your purchases!!  THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!  Funds have already been sent to MHR....but I want to send more!

I also mentioned that there would be Giveaway's...so here is the first one!  

Information about Miracle Horse Rescue

MHR is a federally-recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization which is dedicated to the preservation and welfare of abused, neglected, and unwanted domesticated horses of all types and conditions.  Some of the stories they have shared are simply heartbreaking.  As MHR is a very small organization - run by only 2 people who have literally dedicated their entire lives to helping these horses- I want to help as much as I can. For more information, please view their FaceBook page. 

My Fundraising Activities

So, from September 13, 2013 through October 31, 2013, I will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of my Etsy shop to MHR.  To further entice you to start your Holiday shopping or buy something for yourself, I am offering huge discounts!  My sale prices will be already be reflected for each item.  Here is the low down I am offering:

9/13/2013 - 9/20/2013    - SAVE 30%
9/21/2013 - 9/27/2013    - SAVE 25%
9/28/2013 - 10/11/2013  - SAVE 20%
10/12/2013 - 10/18/2013 - SAVE 15%
10/19/2013 - 10/31/2013 - SAVE 10%

Again - 100% of all proceeds will be donated to this wonderful organization!  Please help me to help these gorgeous furbabies!  

The Goods

Mary Jane Dodd posted an awesome tutorial on the Love My Art Jewelry Blog for making hoops without solder.  I tried it...and I LOVE IT!  These are the earrings I will be giving away:

    I've been visiting your Etsy shop & feel so lucky because I've been eyeing the owl necklace, but discovered "SUNSHINE" & did a happy dance as I could afford them right now this second today (hopefully next Friday I'll be having a hoot with your owl)and they are Patti + Sue + Donna!! Wow! What gorgeous art jewelry you made.

    Shared this post with the Jewel School Community on FB, and I will write a blog post too.

    Shared an Etsy design on my Pinterest :)

    Way to go!
