It is so exciting to be typing this. I have officially opened shop at Etsy! Just type in mangomerle.etsy.com or click here to go directly to the shop. I've already had two sales! Squeeee!
I have a few items completed and ready for posting, but don't have satisfactory photos of them yet so they will be posted in the next couple of days as I convince Corey to come outside and take pictures of the items while I am wearing them. Most notably, these items include a hooded cloak and a shoulder length red cape. I also have several jewelry items in various stages of design/completion which should be listed by this time next week.
I said there would be a giveaway when I finally opened shop and here it is. The winner will get two sets of earrings (valued at a combined $10) of their choice from those shown below, can be any combination including two of the same type (for example, you could choose two pairs of glow worm earrings and get one pair in white and one pair in gold). Giveaway entry guidelines are after the prize pictures. Although only the last one is listed right now, all of these items will soon be available in the shop. When this giveaway is done, I will be hosting a fabric-themed giveaway of items also available in the shop as well. So if the earrings aren't really your thing but fabric is, stay tuned.
|Adorable polymer clay glow worms in top hats and bow ties. They actually do glow in the dark! Choose from black, white, gold, silver or copper (shown) accessories. Wire ear hooks are sterling silver.|
|A bit of fun geekery; health and mana potion earrings. Choose from health, mana or one of each. Bottle sizes do vary but I will try to get them as close to the same as I can. Wire ear hooks are sterling silver.|
Giveaway is open to Us residents only. My apologies to my international friends, but at this time I cannot afford international shipping. I do hope to be able to host some international giveaways here in the future.
Make sure all entries have your email or a way to contact you included since I can't very well have a giveaway and the winner be "anonymous". Once the winner is picked I will send an email and you will have 48 hours to respond or I will have to choose someone else.
Items are custom made so please allow 5-10 days after winner is announced to make your chosen earrings before they will be in the mail to you.
Entries will close 8pm CST 24 August, 2010.
Winner will be chosen via Random Number Generator according to the number of entries.
