Black Friday Madness

Well apparently the madness has begun lol! I got a text from my 20 year old son at 5:30 am this morning asking me "You not out in this craziness are you?". The answer of course, was no I am sleeping lol! His girlfriend works for target and had to be at work at 4:00 am. He went along to make sure that she got in the doors safely.

Mind you, I have nothing against Black Friday sales and have gotten up before the crack of dawn in years past, if there was something specific that I wanted for a gift. Happens that there isn't anything we HAVE to have this year that is important enough to brave the madness. We have changed our spending habits a bit and are cutting back on the massive gift giving this year. We really do have everything that we NEED, anything else is just gravy.

Having said that, I am running a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale in my shop on Artfire only. The sale will end on Tuesday morning. Just follow this link SilverRiverJewelry and it will take you there. In addition if you use the coupon code BLOG, you will receive an additional 10% off your entire order.

On a side note, one of my tree of life pendants has been featured in a Holiday Gift Guide! You can see my pendant and some other really yummy items here at knotbygranma's blog.

I do hope that all of you who braved the madness came back alive and unhurt and that you were able to get everything that you went out for!

Holiday Shopping!

Well its that time of year again, with frenzied shopping and running around trying to find that perfect gift. Make it easy on yourself and shop from home! Everything is delivered right to your door and its really, really fun to get packages in the mail. You can even buy online and have it delivered directly to the person its for! Yes, I know, you all know this already but sometimes, in the hectic holiday rush, we forget sometimes. Just so you know, I will be happy to gift wrap and send to your loved ones (just make sure your leave enough time for it to get there!). Right now, I am having a Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale (it actually started today, to give more time for shipping.) in my Artfire shop only. The prices have been marked down and the sale price is showing. If you are lo0king for well made, unique, elegant jewelry with a wee bit of whimsy, come check it out!

(I haven't decided if I am going to put the bead shop on sale yet or not, I will let you know if I do)

Interesting Trivia

Did you know that the average American home collects approximately 40 pounds of dust in a year? (thank you Readers Digest). That comes out to about 3.3 pounds of dust in a month. No wonder I can't keep up lol!
