January 2010 Newsletter

Happy New Year!!!

Recycling Tip:

Make your New Year's Eve party more recycle-friendly. Check out this article from 1800recycling.com with lots of tips.

New items:

I have added another original photography scrabble tile pendant to my Etsy Shop. (and even more are on the way!) This one, "Wood Street", was taken in Centralia, Pennsylvania, a ghost town with an underground mine fire that has been burning for years. (Actually, you can get a copy of the Outta the Way zine all about Centralia.) This is the street sign for Wood Street and is probably the most unique and cool street signs I have ever seen.

There are also more cord choices listed in the Mix and Match Pendant Section of my Etsy Shop.
Brown Cotton Cord, Natural Cotton Cord, Off-White Cotton Cord, Black Cotton Cord, Black Satin Cord and Ball Chain. (Ribbon Cords will be added soon, as well as pink cotton cord)

And don't forget about the Glass Tile Tutorial I have listed. You can make your own personalized Valentine's Day present. (And the recipient would LOVE it!)


This discount is available only to my email newsletter subscribers and facebook fans. Usually the discount is available in my Etsy Shop, but occasionally I will make it also available at my brick and mortar shop at BUiLDiNG CHARACTER. This month is for my Etsy Shop only.

To get the discount, join my email newsletter or become on fan on facebook. (see to the right)


To make things go a little smoother for me, here are the giveaway rules for this month forward:

  1. In order to enter, you just must be an email newsletter subscriber or facebook fan. If you are both, you are entered twice automatically. You do not need to do anything else to enter.
  2. To win, you must either have a mailing address in the United States or be willing to pay the shipping to receive the giveaway item if you are not in the U.S.A. If the winner does not have a U.S.A. mailing address and is not willing to pay shipping, a new winner will be picked.
  3. I will pick the winner sometime at the beginning of the month and email the winner (or send an email through facebook.) The winner will be chosen with the random number generator at Random.org. (I count the numbers this way: email subscribers are the first numbers and facebook fans are after. It is arranged by order that you signed up.)
  4. The winner has 3 days to claim their prize by responding to the message I send. The winner should respond with their mailing address. (If I am giving away a customizable or choice of items, they should also respond with their choice, again, within 3 days of my email.)
  5. If I do not receive a response within 3 days, I will pick a new winner who will have 3 days to respond. If that person doesn't respond, there will be no winner for the month.
  6. I will send out the prize within 2 days of their response. (Custom items may take a couple extra days.)


This month's giveaway is:
Gettysburg Cross, An Original Photography Scrabble Pendant (which will come with a ball chain)

This is a brand new item that isn't even available to the public as of right now! It is a photo of a monument at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
