Blog Giveways, Discounts & Offers!

Hi All,

I'm madly trying to finish many projects as I'm taking a few days break next week. Not going anywhere just having a rest which means I'll actually need to be disciplined and stay out of the studio... We'll see ;).

I have a few giveaways, offers and discounts for the weekend. Kooky*Boutique has a double blog giveaway for her gorgeous jewellery to read all the details on how to enter visit her blog.
We have 2 Etsyversary deals, the first is from Rachel Lucie Jewellery Designs. To celebrating her 1st Etsyversary she is offering 10% off and FREE Worldwide shipping for the month of September so book mark this now.
The 2nd Etsyversary deal is from Mia Belle Jewellery also celebrating 1 year on Etsy with a Buy 1 get 1 Half Price offer. This deal is on now until 4th Sept. Visit her Etsy store for more details.
Not to mention there's quite a few deals I previously posted that are still running from Snapdragon Beads, Kalicat Jewellery, CeeGee Jewellery & Pennydog Jewellery. Scroll down to read about these previous deals.

Thanks
