The winner will receive this fun Advent Christmas Countdown
And some more fun news...
About a month and a half ago, I listed my various wrapped ornament set on my Etsy shop. I got some immediate response from them, increasing my traffic drastically!
Not long later, I was contacted by a woman from NYC, who was with the company Food52. This summer they opened a shop section of their mostly food-related website that features various items created by people from all over.
They were interested in working with me to sell some Christmas ornaments for their holiday decor collection in November!
So after lots of communicating, pricing, thinking, and craziness, we developed this collection for them to feature!
It has been a learning experience, (and caused plenty of stress) but it's fun to see your product featured on a big company's website such as this!
Here's a link to the homepage of Provisions, if anyone is interested.
Thanks so much to all of you for your support as well!
This last month has truly been crazy for me, but things are settling down, stress levels are lowering, and my house is SLOOWWLY getting back in shape.
Don't forget...last day to sign up for the giveaway!
Whispers of Joy on Etsy
Some of you may have guessed that this was part of my announcement. Some of you may have already visited my shop and discovered it before I shared.
I've slowly been adding things here and there as a side thing, when I made something fun to sell.
Now I'm starting to get a bit deeper into my business (more news to come!), and will be adding new things to my shop more often. Now that my bazaar is over, I can put all my stock on here as I am able. Mostly, this has just been a way for me to enjoy creating, a great outlet for me, being a little side income as well. It's like getting paid to have fun! ;)
Etsy makes things a bit easier on the business end of things than this website did, back when I sold things here. I've been playing around with various ideas, and hope to be able to share more there in the future.
Here's a few samples of what is in the shop, or has been, since I opened up awhile back. Head over there and browse, then come back and read the last part of this post for a fun giveaway (finally)! There is a new 'shop' link on the top of this page also.
Here's the Prize
Christmas is coming!
Do you do a countdown, or Advent calendar with your family?
This is a neat way to anticipate Christmas, and tie in fun activities, treats, and the Christmas Story into each day leading up to Christ's birth.
Each box is approximately 3x3x2, the entire calendar is 15x15x2.
I also have printables for sale to make your own calendar, if you aren't the lucky winner!
(2 chances per person)
1. Go to my Etsy shop and come back and leave a comment about which product is your favorite, or what you'd like to see more of.
2. Share the Whispers of Joy link on FB and come back and tell me that you did in the comments
Also, the more likes the FB page gets, the bigger chances of another giveaway soon! When I hit 400 likes, I will be doing another giveaway, so be sure to spread the word! Also, I have had some other business opportunities come up recently, which I will share more about next week, but the more my page can be spread, the better! Thanks so much! :)

It was crazy...
it was a lot of work...
it was fun!
Here's a few photos of the booth before the crowd hit.
The morning was nuts, but the afternoon slowed down and it got pretty quiet!
Good thing I had my sister in law there to help and keep me company!
Thanks, Lila! :)
