Fantastic Finish Friday

Hello everyone!

I just want to give you all a great big HUG and my sincerest THANKS for taking time out of your lives to visit my blog and Etsy shop. Yáll left me some of the SWEETEST comments, I think I could've gone into a sugar coma!

It has been eye-opening and fun for me to see what draws people to certain rings and even though I don't design the actual earring part of the ring, I'm still drawn to certain aspects like color combinations and textures.

So without any further delay, I'd like to announce the winner of my giveaway.

*Trumpets and Applause*

And by my count, that is Andria!!!!

*Confetti and Balloons*

Wooohooooo, yay Andria!!!!!! If you know Andria, you should stop by her blog and congratulate her, okay? :O)

Thanks again to all of you who gave me your opinions and your time. I'd like to invite you back to visit my Etsy shop, Sparkles In Time and splurge a little on yourselves. And I'll give you some incentive too.

Tell you what, if you buy a ring before February 10th and you tell me that you left a comment in my Bloggy Carnival Giveaway that I can see, I'll give you FREE shipping!

YAY! Now yáll can be winners -- which you totally are anyway!

Have a great weekend and GO STEELERS!!! *Cartwheels and Splits* and Oh my achin' back!!!!

Give Away Time

This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank you!

Gosh, time sure has flown by since I gave something away to my readers and guess what! It's time for the Bloggy Giveaway Quarterly Carnival!

Wheeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yipppeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just LOVE doing this, it's fun to read comments from new faces and hopefully see some familiar ones dropping by too. I also love finding new blogs to read from everyone participating in the giveaway.

But let's get down to business! I've found a new love of repurposing vintage clip on earrings and turning them into wonderfully fun rings! I love doing this so much that I've also joined Etsy with my own shop called Sparkles In Time.

All you have to do is go to my Etsy shop and look at all of the rings there. Come back here and leave me a comment telling me which one of the rings you like the best and what it is that attracts you to it, and you will have a chance to win that ring!

If by chance the ring has been purchased before the end of the contest, an alternate will be given in its place. Also, the pendant is not part of this contest. Thanks!

That's it -- just look at my shop (and buy something too if you like!) come back with an appropriate answer (you have to follow the rules to win, please) and on Friday, January 30th, I will announce the winner. If your email address isn't part of your profile, please be sure to leave it in your comment so I know how to reach you!

(Be sure to spell out the "@" and ".com" as at and dotcom, dotorg or dotwhatever so the webcrawlers don't snag your email address and stick you in the never ending land of spam. Example: bradpittatyahoodotcom or katehudsonatwhackydotorg.)

The contest and comments will close at Midnight, Pacific Standard Time on Thursday, January 29th and I will use a random number generator to find out who the winner is.

One comment per person. Duplicate comments will not be counted, and I know, sometimes your ISP does weird things and makes multiple comments. Don't worry, I've been there myself -- I just won't count the other ones if it happens to you.

So get on over to Sparkles In Time and I'll see you back here on Friday with an announcement of who the winner is. This is so exciting! See you then!!

Joining one revolution, leaving another

And she's back!

Well, even though all of the cool kids have been Twittering for quite some time and continue to do so, I have decided to quit for now. While my thoughts are short and scattered enough to be appropriate for that type of venue, I just don't feel like keeping up with it anymore.

BUTTTTTT....and that's a really big but folks.......I have decided to join a completely different cool place. Etsy!

I'm having a ball repurposing vintage clip on earrings into fun, classy rings just for everyday wear. I don't feel like you should have to drag out a J-Lo sized carat just to be able to make yourself smile.

Although something THAT big would certainly make me smile!

Anywho, I've taken down the Twitter app and replaced it with my mini Etsy shop. I hope you think the pieces are fun as much as I do.

Have a great weekend!

Tune In Tuesday

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. As you can tell, I rushed to get back here and share with you all of the fantastic things I experienced - ha!

In the meantime, here is a little ditty that fully illustrates how I'm currently feeling. Enjoy.
