  9. Hello there,
    I wanted to stop in to say hello and thank you for making such lovely things.
    I met you recently at the Health/Beauty Show at the Spokane College. I was lingering at the show trying out the svcs offered there, and kept coming back to your corner since it was so much quieter.

    Anyway, I’m loving the necklace/pendant I got that day and can’t wait to order a few custom ones when I get my little photo sorting project done. I wondered if you had a spot on your site for reviews? Not sure if I missed it.
    I am doing some personal research on internet marketing and finding ways to promote the things I love. So, I am big on posting reviews wherever possible. I don’t have my own blog set up yet, one day I hope to.
    I see you’re not on twitter much but I’d recommend it. If you add any updates or links I will be happy to RT.

    Anyway, thanks for being kind, approachable and having a great product. Also, I wondered if you had an Etsy store?
    Thanks. Have a great day!

  10. i love pretties and your blog is definitely that! I’m so glad to have found you thru MJ Farms – now I think it’s time to get out the scissors and glue. My family is due for some good old-fashioned Valentine making.
    Do you ever come to the east coast?

  12. “Discovering” you has been such a delight to me, like a piece of jewelry, lost in the back of a drawer, that I hadn’t thought of in so many years…….then there it is, what’s old is new again, my friend, Elaine!

  13. I would love to be included in the drawing! I have to say to everyone who hasnt had one of your necklaces/pendants that they are wonderfully made with love…see I even used love in a sentence how awesome is that?

  14. Hi Elaine!
    Beautiful giveaway, love your charms! I’m so glad I haven’t missed it! I’ve been MIA since we returned home, so much catching up to do.

  15. Hi Elaine,

    I just happened to stumble upon you while doing some research on the super bowl and I’m so glad I did. Your blog is really neat and your charms are just beautiful. You share greeat ideas as well. I’m in the infant stages of starting my own wedding and event planning business and I think your charms would make a great thank you gift for a bridesmaid. I just love unique, hand made items. I can’t wait to tell my future brides about you. Can I order a sample from you?

Thank you and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
