Free Stuff for you.....


I thought I should do my part for the Blogosphere and have a giveaway. It really is the least that I can do after winning a couple giveaways last month.

3 winners will be randomly chosen on July 15th to receive one of three Paisley Lane Handmade Jewelry packages. (That is the little jewelry line I created. FYI)
1st name chosen will have first choice of the prizes - 2nd will have next choice and the 3rd winner will get the remaining prize.
How to enter....
1. Leave me a comment and you will be entered in the contest. If you don't have a blog or a google account then just leave me an anonymous comment with your name and e-mail address.
2. Give me a shout out link on your blog and I will enter your name three times in the contest.
PRIZES!!!!!!



Purple teardrop earrings with genuine amethyst pendant on choker




Green leaf earrings with art glass pendant on leather.





4 pairs of Czech Glass earrings - once pair for each season


As an extra bonus - I will award a couple special prizes to my favorite comments made on any of my others posts (past or future) during the next two weeks.


Enter as many times as you would like.

And while you are here....

Becoming part of the blogging world has opened my eyes to the fact there are a lot of creative women out there who make some really cool stuff. I had this great idea. Let's trade! Seriously, if everyone who made stuff got together for a little trade action, we could have Christmas shopping done in a week. One of my friends makes these adorable toddler hair bows. I happen to have an adorable toddler. I traded her a few pairs of earrings for a few pairs of bows. We told each other the colors we wanted and sent them off. Voilà.
So let me know if you have something handmade you want to trade - aprons, paper goods, hats, purses, home decor, jam...even jewelry! Whatever! Just email me what you want to trade and how many pairs of earrings you think it would be worth. Or send me a photo of what you want to trade and I will tell you how many pairs I would be willing to trade to you. Whichever. I think that earrings are the easiest "currency" for me, since I price most of my earrings the same, but if you see something on my Etsy account or you have something else specific in mind, just let me know. I have been making earrings like a banshee, so I am ready to go. Just think...shopping and no receipts to account for! Could it get any better!?!

A (very) small sample.
Good luck!

I've totally got to check out your jewelry. I'm an earring FIEND and those thumbnails have some temptations there.

I think we've found a mutual addiction -- my blog, your earrings. This could be bad!

Robyn said...

Your stuff is beautiful. I wish I had something to trade. I will had to peruse you etsy shop. Online shopping I can do. Thanks for stopping by.

Kathryn said...

Your jewelry is gorgeous! Wow!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! Are you serious about your dad? That is hilarious! What are the chances? ;)
I often wonder why they took out the old stuff (merry-go-rounds, metal slides) and then put in these crazy bent metal ladders that look like torture devices. Strange.
Have a great night! :)

Sophie said...

This is Dave. I want the earrings. I figure after reading the Twilight series, wearing women's jewelry is the next step. You aren't a Mary Kay consultant by chance...

Just kidding - Dave didn't write this, I did! Ha ha! He'll kill me!
I love you Nat! Your little sister.

Dave and Abby said...

Whatever. I really do want the earrings! Pick me!

Hi Natalie. Got your note and here I am, leaving comments. I also gave you a shout out on my blog, but actually for more than one reason. You are the recipient of a rockin' bloggin' award, so stop by and pick it up -- it's getting heavy.

Love the trade idea. A lot. My friend said she thinks of us as a trade and barter society. I told her she's dern right!I am planning on lots of sewing in the future prior to the holidays and I love to trade.

Dana said...

Wow, your stuff is gorgeous!

Karin said...

I am entering my mom in. She can't figure out how to do it herself. I think it is the freaky little cursive letters that she has to mimic.

So there you go mom. You are entered. Thanks for visiting my blog...

lisa said...

um, as the 67th comment on this post, I hardly think I stand a chance. Especially since I've never won a contest in my LIFE. So, that's why I've hesitated to comment. But prove me wrong! I dare you!

Randi said...

Okay - So we weren't the MOST popular at high school - but I've got to say what did they know, really? Now we are amazing. You gotta love the love. We were just hiding behind the flannels and thermals, awaiting our grand debut and now..... "TAH DAH"

Love the new blog layout- looks great. Thanks for using my pics. It makes me really happy.

Natalie Jane said...

Randi - well maybe not the most popular. But at least we were in the top 10% - per the year book poll at least :)
