Hip Giveaway - Scrabble Charms

Ok people, sorry for the late post. I have several vendors getting their giveaway items together so they can be featured before the show, but I wanted to get one going this week even though it's later than usual. Things are crazy busy right now, but we can't stop the giveaways...right?

This is a new vendor that is new to me (thanks Marisa) and new to making crafts for cash. She has not created an ETSY site yet, so you might want to give her some encouragement or words of wisdom from those who are using ETSY to shop or to sell.

She makes the cutest little charms from scrabble pieces...totally personable and one of a kind. She is giving away this little gem...

The chain is not included in the giveaway, however you can add this to any current chain you have. Isn't the crown so cute...I'm really interested to see how well her "Twilight" themed ones sell. Is that movie/books really that popular? I'm way out of the loop on that one, but I have a feeling she will sell out of them.

Anyhoo...Ellen is so cute and I'm just sad that we all won't get to meet her in person. She will be mailing her goods to me instead.

She has created a blog, so check it out and let us know your favorites...leave a comment

for an additional entry leave a comment regarding your ETSY feelings or how she can promote her blog for future sales.

for 5 more entries email me your address and I will send you some flyers to pass out to help in our show's promotion (CA only, please)...leave a comment for each of the 5 entries.

Giveaway will end Sunday


  1. I just love the black and white/initials ones! These are awesome!!

  2. Etsy is great! I am just starting out myself, and it's a little slow. But I've heard that it can really catch on!:)

  3. I love Etsy. I have two stores. Where is this craft show in Southern California? I live in Corona. My friends and I will travel anywhere to shop at a wonderful Craft Show!

  4. Thanks Anne, the show is in Burbank. The address is
    The Little White Chapel
    1711 N Avon St Burbank, CA 91505
    thanks for your support.

  5. What a fun idea. They're all so cute. I can't decide which is my favorite. I do really like the Christmas ones though and I think my girls would love the princess one.

  6. I would love to pass out cards if I was in CA!
    I love the background on her blog. She could promote her story by doing a giveaway through more blogs.. mine by chance.

  7. Can't wait to see these little CHARMS.... I think the New Moon one is for me....See ou soon.....

  8. I love them. I especially love the Christmas ones. But maybe I am just getting in the mood early!

  9. Everything is so sweet! My favorites are the little girl charms with dangles.

  10. My feelings about business as a current business student/aspiring freelancer/person who likes pretty crafts & such --

    The blog is so cheerful -- it has a great vibe, but be sure that the text is clear on the checked background! Scrolling as the text moves on the stationary background gets a bit crazy & haphazard.

    The personalized charms are amazing. I could definitely see my mom loving something like that as a gift. One point on that photo though -- I would build a lightbox (basically need a poster board, tissue paper, and cardboard box for a cheap one) or at least use a few light sources without flash on your white background, taking photos head-on.

    It looks like you used a flash, which reflects from the background or surface of the charms. Play with camera settings and/or modes to get really professional photos to showcase your PHENOMENAL designs!
