Do You Pin?

The last little while I have been enjoying using Pinterest. There are so many interesting finds and inspirational ideas. In fact, it's rather addictive and I often have to pull myself away.

Here is my Pinterest account...follow me if you'd like to see more of my pin choices.

Finally, Jacaranda Design's Own Website and a Brand New Giveaway! $50 Gift Certificate

For a long time now, I have been toying with the idea of creating a web page for Jacaranda Designs that is completely independent of Etsy. I don't like the idea of being completely reliant on Etsy. However, the thought of creating a new website and maintaining it in addition to my Etsy shop had put me off.

Finally, last week I decided to bite the bullet and go ahead.

So here it is. Jacaranda Designs has tabs that link to my new shop, BLOG, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.

No, I'm NOT closing my Etsy shop. It is still operating and I will be maintaining both the Etsy shop and the independent shop.

If you have a few minutes to spare, please head on over to my new website. I'd love to hear what you think. If you have some suggestions for improvements, even better!

Anyway... To celebrate the opening of my new website, I'm having a giveaway for the whole month of July!

Guess what! Instead of giving away a specific piece of jewelry, I will be giving away a $50 gift certificate for Jacaranda Designs! Yay! You can buy whatever you like...

The lucky winner will be able to pick whatever they like with their $50. a Rafflecopter giveaway
