Today is the first day...

of June, which means it is also the first day that you can start collecting your entries in my new bi-weekly blog giveaway!

So, here's the rules. I'll be posting a link in the left sidebar to the post that highlights the giveaway item as well as the shop that I'm hosting the giveaway for. (Should for some reason, I not have another shop offering an item, I'll be offering one from my own stash!)

Receive 1 entry by:

Posting a comment in that post. The requirement for the comment is kind of a sneaky way to do a bit of market research for the giveaway sponsor, asking opinions or suggestions on their giveaway item or their particular craft/product/etc and will be outlined in the post itself. PLEASE, do not forget to leave me a way to contact you when you comment - if I have to hunt you down, well, you know... I'll have to... I mean... you gotta understand... I'll... ok, it will make me sad :(
Being the first commentor to answer my trivia question of the day correctly!
Purchasing any item from Etsy that has been tagged with either Earthpath Artisans (search East team to find them) or Etsybloggers (search Etsybloggers) You can find the tags in the tag section of the item description. Post your purchase information (shop, item, date purchased in comments and upon verification, you'll receive your additional entry.

Receive 2 additional entries by:

Making a purchase in their shop and mentioning my blog
Making a purchase in my shop and mentioning the sponsoring shop's blog article
Signing up to sponsor a giveaway that I host on this blog (You will receive 2 additional entries for the giveaway period in which you sign up. Sign up by contacting me thru this blog, or on Etsy, or by e-mailing me at

The winner will be selected randomly by a drawing that my husband has graciously agreed to donate the hat for (and incidentally will be pulling the winning entry from said hat as well!)
The drawing will take place at 6am Arizona Time (-7GMT) on the second Monday following the original giveaway posting and the winner will be notified by e-mail or convo that morning. Now you know why I added the world clock gadget - time zones around the globe are SOOOO confusing for me (it's that whole space time continuum thing), so I wanted to make sure they weren't for you! I'll also announce the winner of the previous giveaway here when I post the new giveaway later that morning!

Additionally - once every quarter, I'll be throwing all the entries from that quarter into a BIGGER hat, and I'll have one of my grandkids select the winner of a $25 gift certificate (good for 12 months) that you can use at my shop on Etsy, MysticWynd! The First drawing for this special prize will be held on September 1st.

Alright - I think I've got the rules covered - on to the giveaway. The first offering is from my collection - These great Desert Sun Earrings retail for $10 and combine burnished silver oxide findings with Desert Sun glass beads in a beautiful turquoise blue finish with a silver matrix. The earwires are hypoallergenic surgical steel. These earrings are 1.5" long, exclusive of the earwire.

The question to be answered for this giveaway period is - what's your jewelry style? Trendy? Understated and simple? Bold? Vintage inspired? Ethnic? or???

Good luck!

My jewelry style? I'll call it timepunk! I love steampunk, renfair work, cattlepunk...pieces that evoke another time or culture without being hidebound to the style of that time. It's hard to describe, but I know it when I see it!

I love feminine jewelry, and particularly dangly earrings, but not too long - my neck is not swan-like, sad to say. The earrings being featured are just beautiful, both in color and style.
Hugs to all.
