294 IHeart: A Shy of Perfect Giveaway!

This week's giveaway is sponsored by Shy of Perfect!

http://www.etsy.com/shop/ShyofPerfect?ref=top_trail

And the timing couldn't be better!  Don't forget my friends, Mother's day is just around the corner!  Hint hint!

For Sara, jewelry making is the newest in her long line of hobbies.  When crochet and knitting became too challenging with small children, she tried hand at making a few necklaces and earrings.  It was supposed to be a small hobby that would fit in a box and no more than that.  Soon she was making jewelry for friends, and had made so many pieces, the only sensible thing left to do was sell some of them.  She enjoys keeping her pieces affordable and focuses on supporting other small businesses along the way.  She purchases the majority of her supplies from a locally owned bead shop or from other Etsy sellers.  She works mostly in sterling silver and gold alternatives in hopes of keeping her prices low and quality high. 

Just check out some of the gorgeousness she offers in her shop!


This week, a few of you lucky readers have a chance to score yourself, or someone special, a credit towards jewelry of your choice in the Shy of Perfect Etsy Shop!

{enter using the giveaway management tool below, just follow the simple steps}

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Sara is offering a 15% discount to anyone who would like to make a purchase from the Shy of Perfect Shop if you enter IHEARTORGANIZING at checkout.  Discounts will not be given if coupon code is not used at time of purchase.

Most shops just said that they never had anyone come in and ask them if they would be interested. I just want to encourage anyone who might have been turned down in the past to make another go of it. More people seem to be seeking out locally made goods daily.
