It’s been quite some time since I last posted here on the blog, but I have been far from idle. I launched my online jewelry store at Aftcra on March 14th, hoping to ease gradually into the world of handmade selling. Much to my delight there was immediate interest in my little shop: much to my consternation I was woefully unprepared. I was forced to regroup, perfect my packaging and develop a better plan. A big part of that plan was deciding where to concentrate my efforts and time, and I’ve decided to focus on jewelry making rather than blogging for the time being.
Have you seen the Charlotte Mason Motto bracelets I make? They currently come in three colors: blue, pink and amber. They’re simple and elegant and wearable; I am tremendously excited about them. I hope that all of you will be just as excited about them, so this week I’m giving away two: one here on the blog and one over on my Instagram account. There’s a few different entry options, and I encourage all of you to share this giveaway with your Charlotte-Mason loving, book-reading, jewelry-wearing friends. The more the merrier! Each lucky winner will be able to choose the color of their prize.
This giveaway will run from Monday through Saturday, and the winner will be announced by noon on Monday the 25th of April.
Next week, on Monday the 25th, the Legends and Lace Aftcra store will be restocked: just in time for Mother’s Day. There will be some new color variations added at that time. Make sure you sign up for the e-mail newsletter, and watch for a special surprise. Further down the road are plans for book-themed charm bracelets, lace earrings, an elegant tribute to my three favorite authors and metal-stamped jewelry. Be sure and leave a comment below letting me know what you would love to see included in the Legends and Lace line.
