Featuring Spice Grove Designs

I recently found Spice Grove Designs on Etsy, when I won a contest for a $5 gift certificate to the shop, and made a purchase. I chose a Fragrant Cinnamon Stick Coaster-Standard. I thought I'd give it to my hubby for an early Father's Day gift, since he drinks coffee every morning. It arrived a couple of days after I ordered it (wow, that was fast shipping!) and I was so happy with it. When I gave it to my husband, he thought it was great too. He has used it every morning since, putting his coffee cup on it and enjoying the scent of cinnamon.

Spice Grove Designs offers many neat items, such as wall hangings/frames, trivets, wreaths, and topiaries. Here is what the owner says on her shop's announcements:

Welcome to my cozy corner of the world! I adore creating items using natural items like whole spices, branches, dried flowers, etc. I love repurposing/recycling items that were bound for a landfill to create a harmonious piece with the natural items. I'm excited to offer unique fragrance solutions that are natural and pleasing. Tired of worrying about candles, smoke, oils that drip? Come and try one of nature's answers - spices!! All are handmade by me in a smoke free home. Please read my policies for more information! Thanks for visiting me!
Come to her shop and see all of the offerings there, you won't be disappointed! There is a SALE going on there today only, you must go to her Facebook fan page and LIKE it. Then you will see the post with the code for 25% off!

New Zibbet Shop!

I recently opened a shop in a new venue, called Zibbet. I love that they have free accounts as well as pro accounts. I opened a free account and copied all of my listings from ArtFire. I was amazed at how easy it was to transfer my items! I made a sale the very first day I had opened my shop, so that was one major selling point for me to keep my shop open. The next day, I made another sale! I'm so excited about this new venue for selling my handmade crochet, knit and other creations. I hope you will check out my shop called Breath of Dawn. Thanks for reading and I pray you all have a great day!

The Perfect Way to Stay Up-to-Date in the Technology Age

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ogilvy. All opinions are 100% mine.

This world is always changing and I like to stay up-to-date on news and current events.  It gets harder to keep up as the technology age keeps changing as much as the world does.  I just discovered one awesome way to keep on top of globally relevant topics, an "appazine," which is an app available on the iPad called the collection.  There are well-written articles, audio, photos and videos.  On top of that, there are some cool features like interactive elements for panoramic photography, 3D digital animation, creative morphing, x-ray lens and a lot more.  Surprises abound with every swipe, tab or rub of the screen!  Download this app now and try it out!

The most awesome thing about this is they are giving away an iPad!  All you have to do is tweet to enter!  Just type in "Stay up-to-date with current events by using #thecollection iPad App".  It's THAT easy!  I already tweeted my entry and I encourage you to do the same.  If I win an iPad, I'll be downloading the app right away so I can stay on top of news and current events that I don't want to miss!   Contest ends May 15th, so go and enter before it's too late.
