Crafters Unite ~ A Sweet Little Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago I met a friend for breakfast {hi Janae!} and afterwards we strolled through the Gilbert Farmer's Market. On that particular morning, there was an art walk too. As crafters, we really enjoy seeing handmade items, and one artist in particular caught our eye.


Standing behind a table displaying beautiful hand crafted leather bracelets was a young woman by the name of Christin Joy. We talked for a while, admired her work, took a business card, and each of us purchased bracelets.

The next day, after admiring my new bracelet, I had an idea. I sent an email to Christin, and she graciously agreed to offer one of her lovely bracelets as a giveaway on my blog in exchange for a little Etsy shop promo.

My bracelet is a pretty shade of blue {teal} and sports my first initial. I love the look and feel of this bracelet, and I know you will too if you are the lucky winner.


So, here's the deal:
one person will win a braided leather bracelet,
in the color of their choice, and with the letter
charm of their choice.

To enter the random drawing, leave a comment on this blog post, or a comment on PaperTurtle's Facebook page. {I've also posted a photo on my Instagram feed if you want to comment there. My user name is PaperTurtle.} For an extra entry, visit Christin's Etsy shop and come back and leave another comment telling me what you loved over in her shop. Additional entries will be awarded if you: a) mention this giveaway and Christin's shop in a blog post, or b) mention same on Facebook. {If you are entering multiple times, you need to leave separate comments to do so.} A winner will be selected by random drawing and announced next Wednesday {January 30, 2013}, and Christin will ship internationally. :o)

A big thanks to Christin for offering up such a lovely bracelet.
If you're the lucky winner, I know you'll love this prize!
PS: Since this will be a random drawing, I'm allowing my family members to enter this giveaway too {except for Carrie who already owns a bracelet made by Christin}.

Edit: The contest is now closed.
:o)

You hooked me at "Christin can ship internationally!" YAHOO! I never get to enter fun giveaways living over here! I seriously love, love, love, love, love this bracelet! It's the perfect amount of classy, casual, dressy, and eye catching! I REALLY hope I win! Fingers crossed! PLUS, I could make her bracelets internationally famous! lol

Nice bracelet, great color for you. Would love to win one.

I think I agree with Cheri - though I also really like the custom stamped charm - but I think the blue is the prettiest colour for either :)

I went and visited. I like the idea of customized charms - I've wanted a soccer charm for a while.

This is a beautiful bracelet and I really love the color. I always tell my friend to make sure she is carrying business cards when she does fairs or displays. Christin got a golden opportunity to promote her fantastic creations.
