Happy Mother’s Day! Exclusive Offer!

Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

Testing a new tool designed for use as “Codeless Coupons” made available by eBay for my store, I thought what better test than to make the first offer available only for those who have followed and supported my work in the past. So as a special Mother’s Day event, I have created an initial limited time test offer in my eBay store exclusively for my followers.  Those who follow me on the Blog, Facebook and Twitter will be the only ones notified or eligible to participate.

In recognition of Mothers and all they do, the featured items are handmade, wire-wrapped Sea Glass and Stone pendants, each unique and One of a Kind. An opportunity for moms (or fellas) to pick up a little something special for themselves or a loved one at a good savings. I have set the minimum required purchase below the lowest price pendant so that all would be included, no exclusions and no multiple items purchase requirements.

The offer is for a 30% savings on a purchase of $15.00 or more, and as always—shipping is FREE within the U.S., with a gift box and cord or silver-toned necklace to display the pendant included. If you purchase more than one, the discount applies to all. Simple, straightforward.  But hurry, this initial test only goes thru Mother’s Day weekend, and ends Monday night.  After that, the special link will not work.

Because I am offering it only to my followers, the exclusive offer is only available by accessing this link to my store. Other shoppers do not see or benefit from this. If you want to share the link with a friend or family, that’s fine. It’s a way to thank you, however you wish to use it. Here is your link → http://ebay.us/8Ajj5P.

Either click the link here in the blog, or enter the link into your browser to access the promotion within my store, and the system will make sure the proper discount is applied for you. But again, you will only be able to receive the discount if you use this link. That’s what makes it exclusive.  It is only set up for you as a follower.

So—thanks for following along!  Hope you find something you like. If folks like this and the new Codeless Coupon and special link tools work as advertised, maybe we can do some more of these from time to time. — Jim

Happy Autumn! Back to Work on the Store!

Wishing everyone a beautiful first official day of Autumn as we say goodbye to summer today. Apples, pumpkins, cider and apple butter, hayrides, changing leaves on the hills, fall baking, cookies and so much more await as we lead up to the holiday season that seems to run from Halloween to the Super Bowl now.  The fall season brings a refreshing and invigorating freshness and revitalizing crispness to the air.  Comfortably warm days and welcome, blissfully cool nights.

A busy week ahead with much to do here. I took a little break from my online store over the summer, concentrating heavily on writing projects and developing new designs and patterns, but back to it in earnest now.  Writing is fun, the store pays for the groceries.

Five new bears were finished last week, along with a dozen antiqued Mini American Flags for bear and doll displays. The first in a new line of Handmade Wooden Mini Bear and Doll Chairs were finished as well. Rocking Chairs in different styles, and a “surprise” design of my own. Hope you like them!

Several new Sea Glass and Healing Stone Pendants have been wrapped and are ready, also.  I was fortunate enough to find some beautiful, rare red beach glass pieces over the summer, and have the first few finished.  Watch for them all to be listed into the store by the end of the week, with more new bears and other creations to follow.

Work continues on the Poetry Project with Charles Dickens still taking up residence in my mind, in addition to working with Little Red Bear to finish his first collection of short story adventures for release after the holidays. Busy times.

Separately, Rusty the Fairydiddle, the Blog Assistant here, left for an out of town assignment a few weeks ago and I have not heard from him lately. If anyone has seen him or knows of his whereabouts, please give a holler.  As you probably know, he will be the Red Squirrel carrying a notepad, among other things.  He was headed in the direction of Florida.  I will let you know if and when I hear something myself. Starting to get a little worried.

As always, thanks for reading and following along and have a great day! Happy Autumn! – Jim (and Red!)
