Newletter Glitch

Sorry to everyone that has signed up for the newsletter in the last couple of weeks or has added their bday to their subscription information. I've got a special little treat in store for you, but the mail system I'm currently using is trying to iron out an automated system glitch. That has to happen before you get your virtual goodie.

Anyway, it's bound to happen someday. And when it does, it'll be for anyone that's signed up for the Valentine's Day newsletter or has had a birthday since this spring.

Keep holding your breath...

Spring Giveaway!

All you have to do tell us what you love about what we do. Shoot us an email and share why you shop with us, why you refer us, or why you signed up for the newsletter. That's it.

Just make sure it's done by May 25. The drawing will be that week and the winner will be announced on May 29.

The prize, oh the prize, is a Threaded Necklace of your choice based on availability. Can't wait to hear from you!

dang, this blog is in shambles....

so i'm always trying something new and different. always considering new ways to link all of my cyber life together. sometimes it works well, other times the gesture is much like a bad outfit. good idea, wrong execution. anyway, i need to tighten things up here.

for instance, i noticed that my parallel jewelry supply photos are intermingled with pictures of me! if want to hear about me, why would you care about stones? good question, chrystal.

anyway, i still haven't posted dallas. so wrong. i just keep deliberating over how i'll do it. i should have done a story here or a story there all throughout the trip. however, there was no time for that. it was a full on adventure. i think i'll just go along and pick a photo and tell a story. yes, that's what i'll do. and i'll do one at a time as not to make myself nuts.

in the meantime, follow me on twitter. yes, do that. http://twitter.com/chrystalpaasch.

posting, oh, posting.

i think i have a hard time updating my blog sometimes. i think it may have to do w/ the fact that i can get my jewelry blog to feed over to my social media sites but can't figure out to how to get this one. it makes me uninspired to think i'll have to copy and paste. oh, the horror. anyway, i'm going to do a bad thing and backblog. it's sort of like being backlogged on blogging. yes, that's what it is. so i guess i should post about my texas trip. i wonder if i can remember anything but the shining faces i saw there. oh yes, i weight about 5 pounds more because of that beautiful trip. (-;

watch for it.

Newsletter Schnoozeletter

I can say I'm happy to be finished with the newsletter. I love making them, but I hate the deadlines I put on myself coming up close to any holiday. In the retail world, you have to get moving on the looming holiday so far in advance it's ridiculous. Sometimes I'm aware of said holiday and am very in sync with the retail timeline and sometimes I'm very much not. Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!

And while I'm on the topic of newsletters, I just found the greatest little tidbit of a thing tucked away in the depths of the newsletter website that I use. It's called autoresponder. When new people sign up for the newsletter, it will automatically send them a little note with whatever I think will impress them right out of the gate. (-;

It also has a trigger for birthdays! There are VERY few of you that have imputted your birthday into your newsletter data and it's a real shame. It's a shame because I just set up an autoresponder that will send you a $10 coupon to help celebrate the day that you came into this world. You know, there's still time to get yours...

As promised... Mother's Day Specials!

Mother's Day is the debut of the Solitary Star Necklaces as shown above. The necklace features a singular stone that is suspended by either a gold filled or sterling silver chain that is utterly delicate. It measures 16 to 17 inches unless otherwise specified. The singular stones are Moukaite and vary in color with tones of burgundy, lavender, vanilla cream, and mustard yellow. It's a bit contemporary and wonderfully minimalistic. Available for $28.50 in gold filled and $26.50 in silver.

The center necklace, the Baby Star Necklace, is special for Mother's Day as well. It's made of faceted smoky quartz and is also threaded with either sterling silver or gold filled dainty chain. What makes this necklace special is that you can order it tailored to symbolize one child per stone. If you're an only child, select one stone. If you've got 4 siblings you'd choose 5 stones total. It's a gift for a timeless beauty that has done a coveted job of raising her children. Available for $31 in gold for single stone and $29 in silver. Add $1 per additional stone to either necklace.

There is a small stock of these necklaces so order early! Free shipping on orders $50 or more.

Debut of Solitary Star Necklace for Mother's Day

So it's almost Mother's Day and your scrambling around websites looking for the perfect gift. You've hit RedEnvelope and it's all the same stuff. You've considered itunes and it's too impersonal. You've even toyed with Ebay for that one perfume she loved 30 years ago.

Stop wasting time and check out the Solitary Star Necklace for the classiest mommas around! The necklace features an exceptionally dainty gold filled or sterling chain and one solitary shining stone threaded through the chain. It's dramatic in a demure way. It's chic in the french minimalist sort of way. It's elegant no matter what you pair it with.

You'll see it tomorrow...
