T.G.I.F. Giveaway - Zephyr Woods

Friday, April 23, 2010

Wow! I've had an AWESOME response to the giveaways that I host on my blog. I love to help people win FREE stuff! 

I am making one change. Instead of having them each week, I will now only host them every other Friday. Please frequently check the left and right columns on my blog. If I find out about other freebies, I will have a picture posted for you to click on for more info about that giveaway.

Now for the "Thank God It's Friday" Giveaway! This one is just in time for Mother's Day. You have the chance to win this cute black maple wood Peep pendant necklace. Read the end of this post for contest rules.

Greetings to Linda and her cute shop on Etsy called "Zephyr Woods".  This shop is full of handmade wood pendants that feature beautiful images on each piece.  

What an interesting shop name. How did you come up with it?
My daughter's name is Zephyr and I was once told that every child comes with a dowry, so I decided because of the timing of launching my new jewelry line, it should be called ZephyrWoods.

What do you want customers to know about you and your products?
I make each and every piece in my store and my jewelry supports my existence. All of my jewelry is attractive, versatile and useful.
I just love this exchange of raw material, to jewelry, to item of joy for whomever it ends up with. I have always felt that there is a special someone at the other end of this creative moment when I am making a piece. I rarely know beforehand who a piece is for but it is fun to find out. At times it can be surprising!
What other hobbies or passions do you have?
I love to garden and rollerblade. I aspire to be more efficient so that I can devote more time to homesteading. We live on 20 acres and this canvas is just waiting to be manipulated.


What motivates or inspires you to create?
My surroundings. Everyday I look out my kitchen or studio windows and I see nature evolving. The colors are inspiring and ever changing. Taking a deep breath and getting down to business is really refreshing.

Zephyr Woods is offering 10% off right now in honor of Mother's Day through May 9th. Also, a portion of Linda's profits are dedicated to lending through KIVA.org. She finds great pride and inspiration in "paying it forward" by helping others as she has been helped. Kiva.org is an organization facilitating the processing and procuring of micro-loans to entrepreneurs worldwide who otherwise have no access to credit. Please visit www.kiva.org to learn more.

Now for the contest rules:

2. If you "FOLLOW" my blog - you get "2" entries in the prize drawing.
3. If you post something on your own blog about my giveaway - you get "3" entries in the prize drawing. (If you post on your blog please leave your blog info with your comment)

Good Luck! The winner will be randomly selected (using random.org) next Thursday, April 29th.

We have a winner. I use random.org to generate the winner. Debra from Conroe, Texas won the peep pendant necklace from "Zephyr Woods". Congrats!

My favorite piece would have to be the beautiful pendant. I've been trying to remind myself to see the beauty in everyday, so this would help. Thanks for hosting such cool give aways!
