Cyber Monday sale

This post is a little late, but better late than never, right? 😉

Shop small and local this weekend! Obviously I am a small business owner and every single sale that comes through my Etsy shop and in person is VERY much appreciated. It’s not easy owning a small business – there is TONS of competition. However, it’s very rewarding and I’ve met the most amazing people because of my small businesses.

So, this weekend through 12/1 save 25% + get a free gift with your Handcrafted by Heather purchase. In addition, get a $25 Etsy gift card when you spend $100! Oh, and you’ll still get free shipping within the U.S.

Geesh. Great deals.

Springing into Spring, Marching into March…

….I could do this all day……. but I won’t…. You’re welcome. 😛

It’s March already! Yikes! This year is already flying! phew!

I’ve been busy… [SUPER busy] making new jewelry, filling custom orders, promoting, photographing, and planning 3 parties- wait, no 4 parties; my son’s 3rd birthday is coming up and we’re having a family gathering that will be dinosaur themed (of course, what else?!).

This coming Sunday March 11th, I am hosting a grand ‘ol party at LiSalon. It’s an open house jewelry and wine accessory party. If you happen to live in the Ithaca, New York area, please be sure to stop in between 1:00 and 4:00pm. LiSalon is located at 412 East Upland Road in Community Corners.  If you’re one of the first 25 guests to sign in you’ll receive a gift bag jam-packed with HCBH jewelry and wine accessories, as well as some samples from the gals at the salon to keep your hair look fabulous!

If you don’t live in the Ithaca area, or you simply can’t make it- no worries! I’m having an online Jewelry party starting March 22 (Happy Birthday, Grandma) and this will last for a couple of weeks so that all of you have a chance to get your hands on all your favorite goodies. I’ll post all of the information in my next post.

April 22nd is a ways away, but that’s the day I’ll be hosting yet another Spring Jewelry and Wine Accessory party at my apartment. If you live in the Canandaigua area and are interested in attending this party please feel free to email me with your mailing address. I will mail you an official invitation. This will be a more formal party, and will not be open to the public, but it’s still a party I’m busy thinking about.

**RIGHT NOW** I have a Suprise SOA Sale going on. If you purchase a Sons of Anarchy Inspired Jewelry piece, your entire order will be 10% less when you apply this shop coupon code at checkout: SUPRISESOA10. So take advantage of this sale while it lasts, which will only be a few more days.

It’s almost day light savings time again! Woohoo!!! Enjoy, everyone. ❤
