I Need Your Help!

Hello Dear Blog Friends,

I never had a chance to come back and visit blogs after posting in my last post to blogger.

Steve's fishing trip was good and they did catch some trout up at Davis Lake, but they were able to catch and release, so no fish for me to cook. Steve will not eat the fish anyway he only eats odd fish like catfish or shark. The two fishes I would not eat by the way, but I love all kinds of fish and seafood.

I had a great time with my friend Terry last weekend, we went shopping and ended up at Macy's. She bought a cute knitted black sweater vest that is sleeveless, she bought a few other things too. Then she decided she didn't want the vest and she had coupons and a charge card for Macy's so she got the vest for like 19.00 something with tax which was a good deal for that vest. Since I liked it so much...... I bought it off her. I love it. I love those little short cover-ups for over your tops and dresses.

This Labor day weekend which starts tomorrow for Steve, he will have a four day weekend, he is going to paint the trim on our entire house because the shutters are rusty where they didn't use the correct nails and they rusted out and now our window shutters look horrible and around the garage the paint is peeling off the wood. Our house is 7 years old. Thank goodness the quality of the rest of the house is good compared to this crappy workmanship of the exterior paint. I've had the company whom we bought the house come out and fix it several times, but they never replace the nails so the problem always comes back, they have never fixed the paint peeling away and off the wood on the garage. So Steve will just do it himself. I notice that lots of our neighbors have fixed their own trim problems themselves as well and they painted the trim with a darker paint. The paint that is on our trim, if you notice is lighter then our house. Steve wants a darker trim, I don't. I want it lighter like it is, maybe a different color though. We will see who wins this battle. LOL!
So far I have not seen a house that has been repainted in our neighborhood that I like, that has used darker paint.  

I should have turned the flash off, look there I am in the reflection taking the photo. She how the paint is lighter then the house, I like that, Steve wants the paint darker. See the rusted nails on the shutters, it looks so awful. Grrrrr!


Okay so here is where I need your help! no not with the paint on the house, but with my Jewelry Business. I am now not only making crystal suncatchers, but trying to work into a earring business. I have done okay and gained a few great customers that keep coming back for more time and time again, but I need to expand my selling of the earrings or want to anyway. 

I have posted over 50 paris of earrings to my Etsy Shop, I have only 9 sales on Etsy and not from the earrings. Here is where you come in and can help me. 
Whether you wear or like earrings please help me because you potentially have lots of readers that love jewelry and esp earrings.  Do you know I always wear earrings every day whether I am going out or not, that is how much I love earrings. My ears feel naked without them. 

Okay so you help me and perhaps you might win a free pair of earrings and a bonus pair as well....... Valued at $30.00 for the two pairs, plus shipping right to your house.
So I will show you one pair and tell you what you have to do to win this pair of earrings and a bonus pair, it won't be hard I promise. 

Do the following to win
# 1. Link to my Shiny Moon Beams Etsy Shop in your post.  

#2. Spread the word about my Lucite Flower Earrings & contest by posting the link above in your blog and telling your visitors about my contest, link to my blog so they can play as well and find me here. Invite them to play. 

 #3. Show off the small photo or larger photo of my earrings in your blog. You can download something off my Etsy store that you love or show off this free pair that someone will win plus a bonus pair that I have not decided on yet. 

#4. Come back to my blog when you're ready and let me know you posted about this. 
That's it! Walla you're done and and I will add your name to the contestants!

The winner of the contest will be announced on my blog on September 19th.   

Here is what the earrings look like on Twiggy! they will just this good on you!

Now even if you think you're not an earring lover, don't forget your friends might be and if you win these along with the bonus pair that would make a perfect gift for you to give to your earring loving friend. 

Thanks to all that participate and help in giving the starving artist a chance to spread the word with your gracious help. I thank you in advance.

  1. Oh Yay!! I will for sure help you. I do not know why I did not think of putting an ad up for you annyway on my own. I would like to put one up in my side bar also. :) Ok...I know blah, blah, blah. I will do that this weekend. We are under a tornado warning, so hiding...LOL!! Yes, I am playing on my laptop. I do all kinds of crazy things when I am nervous.

  2. Kat, would you be so kind to remind me next week to do this for you as I am running a very special write of an 11 yr with cancer thru Monday ... pop over & read it please. Thank you, sweet friend.

    Have a great holiday weekend.

  9. Hi this is Kim at I just put up a post and a link about your contest on the earrings. Thanks for letting me enter your contest.

  10. Kat that is a cool contest and I wish you best of luck with your eTSY earring adventure! (LOL I don't wear earrings any more, got out of the habit of it few years back). thanks for inviting me to participate in your contest, but I don't usually promote other people's contests/give aways on my blogs (just something I set up within myself for my own rules/boundaries with blogging, like I don't have a follower widget on my blog, don't do comment moderation, don't make people follow me if they want to enter a giveaway I may do, etc). But I do wish you well with it!!


  11. Hi Kat!! I have the info posted!! :) Hope you are having a wonderful holiday!!

  12. Awwww, what a fab contest you are having, Kat! I will be more than happy to help. Would you be so kind to remind me in a couple of days, please? Thank you in advance and have a lovely Labor Day! ~huggles~

    Hugs, Marydon
