1 Year Anniversary and a GIVEAWAY

4:00 AM

I know some of you come to my blog every Monday for #manimonday but today will be slightly different so I can give my nails a little break and also because today is my Etsy Shop’s One Year Anniversary!  I am so excited about this!  People always ask me how I got started with my business and it was a pure accident.  I was making Christmas ornaments for my mom and coworkers one day and my creative juices started flowing.  I had a minor (ok maybe major) obsession with mason jars and wanted to make a Christmas table centerpiece.  I also turned this into a DIY post (here).  Once I made this I decided since there were a few more mason jars just collecting dust why not make some center pieces out of those.  That’s when my mom said “maybe you should try selling these.”  So I did.  I had a pretty good response and then a few months ago I became obsessed with wire bangles.  I started looking on Etsy and found out that it was a little above my price range for all of the ones that I really liked so yet again, I made some myself.  I also made them to fit my style.  Once again my mom told me to sell them.

I rebranded and renamed my shop (read all about that here) and am currently selling Mason Jars as home d├ęcor and wire bangles.  I enjoy making all of these so much and it’s a great feeling to know that so many other people enjoy them as well.  I am also creating something new and I love that I get paid to do something I love.  As some of you know I work a typical Monday through Friday office job and it’s a great job but I can’t really be creative so the fact that I have my own small business is really amazing.  I thank all of you for your support and for those of you who purchased either my jars or my bangles, it truly means a lot!

Since I am feeling so extremely grateful for making it through a whole year with this business I want to giveaway either a set of 2 bracelets or one mason jar centerpiece, it will be your choice once you receive your email from me!  They will be made once the giveaway is over.  If you choose a set of bracelets I will simply ask you what color you would like and the rest is up to my creative juices.  For the mason jar, these can be more customized however you will have to allow some time for me to be able to make them.  Also, this giveaway is only open to the UNITED STATES.  Any INTERNATIONAL entries will be removed.  I greatly apologize for this!  Below are some more pictures to give you an idea of what my Etsy shop consists of.  Also, if you can’t wait to see if you won the giveaway and have to have something that’s in my shop I am offering 20% off at check with coupon code ANNIVERSARY

Again thank you all for your support!  Please be sure to enter the giveaway below!  It starts today and ends next Monday 1/26/15.
