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.
