A New Phase......& a 100 Follower Give Away!!!!


Okay....many of you have asked. I was scared. I didn't know how to do it to be honest. I don't know if I even know how to do it. But I am going to try. Lincoln & I made a banner today for my new Etsy shop. It is called Hope Ellington Designs. I am starting small with a few soldered pieces. These to be exact. It scares me only because I am not computer savvy. All this technology scares me. I sell my wares at Lisa's shop, Lola Rue, & I will always do that as long as she will have me but it is very local and some of you have started to ask if I have an Esty shop. So I am going out on a limb....I am going to see if I can get these loaded into the new Hope Ellington Design shop. Be patient with me dear readers.

So while you are all being patient with me....why don't we just have a little give away....because I am really good at that! In honor of my 100th follower & I find that really remarkable I really do let's just honor that. Why don't I just pick a winner on Valentine's Day. That sounds lovely. So, all comments must be received by February 14, 2012. New followers will receive 2 chances to win with a comment, just let me know that you followed me and leave a comment. Current followers will automatically get 2 chances to win just let me know you are a follower and leave a sweet comment....I love my comments. They are the best part of my day!

Want to know what you will win???? One of these sweet velvet & rhinestone soldered pendants. I will randomly choose the color.....but sweet little birdies usually get to choose!!!! So I hope you will leave a comment. I hope you are just as excited about my Esty shop and my giveaway as I am....thanks for always being such an inspiring & supportive group of friends! Blessings for an artfully creative day.

This is long overdue! Yes, you should definitely make your creations available outside of Bloomington. You know I adore a Hope Ellington Designs piece of bling...

Now, don't enter me in the giveaway, cause you just made me my fabulous FIJI Mom necklace and my top-secret Mom's Weekend auction item too!
