Monthly Giveaway - One Year Blogoversary Extravaganza!!!

Congratulations to Heather (h4schaffer) who won the Black Raspberry Pearl Ring!!   Thank you to everyone who entered! 

To celebrate my One Year Blogoversary, this month I'm giving away a $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE good towards anything in my shop!   For example, you could get two rings and a pair of earrings!   

Here is a sample of some of the items in my shop:



I'm doing things a little differently this month, though:  you have the chance to win extra entries!    Ordinarily I don't do this, but for the one year blogoversary I thought I needed to up my game a little.

You can get entries for each of the following things:
  •  Comment below that you would like to enter, and please include your email (or email me directly at ellieandsteve@verizon.net) = 1 entry.
  • Subscribe to my newsletter, by clicking here, or look at the right sidebar (towards the bottom), find the entry block and enter your email.   (NOTE: If you are already a Newsletter Subscriber just mention that in your comment and that is good for 3 entries!!).   New subscriptions good for 1 entry.
  • Follow my blog (see right sidebar) = 2 entries
  • Subscribe to my Facebook Fan Page (see right sidebar) = 2 entries
  • Follow me on Twitter - @onecraftyellie (see right sidebar)  = 2 entries
  • Tell me your favorite item in my Etsy shop, Shining Stones = 2 entries
In your comment, please indicate which of the following you did above, and I'll add up the total number of entries for you (for example, if you are a new subscriber to the Newsletter (1), follow my blog (2) and tell me a favorite item from my shop (2) - you would get FIVE total entries).  

A winner will be chosen at random (my daughter picks a name from a hat) on July 1st.   So the more entries, the better your chances of winning!

This giveaway is open internationally.

This is a one-time only offer - I won't be doing another $50 gift certificate this year!

Thanks so much!

    My favorite item in your shop is the robin egg ring. Which I'm thinking of getting as my "something blue" for my wedding!

  41. Gosh, that's a pretty decent prize. And all for your first year. Congratulations! I know exactly what to get if I'm lucky enough to win.
    Email: zeghsy@gmail.com
    Subscriber already: how I found out about all this
    Follower: did that a while ago too
    I know a certain someone who needs a certain ring that resembles a particular bird nest for a particular big life changing event coming up. Does that count as telling you my favorite piece?
    In any case I have 1 (comment w/ email addy) + 3 (current subscriber) + 2 (follower) + 2 (naming favorite piece) = 8 entries
    Congratulations again!!!
