Etsy Shops I Heart Giveaway

The final giveaway for my One Year Celebration is here!
One of my biggest accomplishments of my first year of blogging, was opening up my PB&Jcreations Etsy Shop.  It was a big jump for me to make, and believe in myself that I could take the leap and I have had a wonderful experience since I started in October.  I have these ladies to thank for my initial belief and love of Etsy.  Each of these women have their own store (technically Ashley from TSP isn't on Etsy.. but just go with it) and each have their own beautiful items. 
I personally love the experience of shopping on Etsy, and being able to communicate with the buyer, and as a store owner, I LOVE communicating with my buyers. 
I want to personally thank each of these women for their generosity in opening up their Etsy shop to my readers and sharing their amazing goodies with you!  I hope you love each of their shops as much as I do.  One winner will win the $135 value prize! 

The Shine Project

Why I love Ashley of The Shine Project:
I have followed Ashley for quite a long time and her amazing adventures she encounters being the voice behind The Shine Project.  She is a truly amazing person and is one that makes this world a better place.  If you're unfamiliar with what The Shine Project is, I highly suggest you take a moment, click on over to her blog and read up on all she does to make the world a better place.
I was a sponsor of hers in April and loved feeling "a part" of that community.  After working with her for that month I decided that I wanted to continue to contribute and made two exclusive signs in my Etsy shops for The Shine Project and am donating 10% of each sale of the signs to her Shine Scholarship fund. 

What she's giving you: 
One Yellow TSP shirt (as seen in the picture above) ($20 value) 

The Shine Project's purpose is to inspire you to live the highest quality of life obtainable,

and to motivate you to join our efforts in making this world a better place.
We have many events set up around the country, and would love for you to get involved!
The Shine Scholarship Project is a non-profit that was created by TSP
to put our beliefs in action.
Its mission is to improve the lives of at-risk teens through service, education, and family involvement.
We do service projects with inner city students every other week to teach them
the leadership skills that are necessary for them to succeed.
The money we raise goes to sending these leaders to college, so they can give back to society.
You can read more about how to get involved HERE. 

Cindy of Blessed Design Studio

Why I love Cindy of Blessed Design Studio:
Where do I begin? Cindy is a bloggy bff of mine.  We've been close for quite some time... and I can say we're legitimately close because we share secrets via email that are BFF worthy status!  We came across each others blogs way back in the beginning.  She was the winner of one of my giveaways, I in turn came to her for some design ideas for my blog, and we've just been going back and forth supporting and helping each other grow ever since.  She has redesigned my blog twice, she's guest posted for a couple of times, I'll be hanging about 25 of her printables in my son's new gallery wall (if and when I ever get that motivation). 

What's she's giving to you:
$25 Store Credit to her Etsy Shop
Cindy is a proud stay at home mom to 2 wonderful children. She started off designing birth announcements in 2006 when her son was born, then she went on to graphic design services for businesses. She loves to design anything from banners to blogs and ads. 

Rachel of Saressa Designs

Why I love Rachel of Saressa Designs:
Rachel was one of my first Etsy shop owners I reached out too when I started blogging to do a giveaway with because I had purchased a necklace from her and was absolutely in love with it.  She was so wonderful to work with she was truly the one that gatewayed me into shopping on Etsy more and more as I loved the connection shoppers can make with the store owners.  I've watched her beautiful shop grow over the past year and she has done some amazing work.  Her gorgeous jewelry pieces have even landed in the hands of celebrities!  All her pieces are handcrafted with such detail and care, you can truly see her dedication in her work. 

What she's giving to you:
$40 Store Credit to her Etsy Shop

Saressa Designs features wire wrapped gemstone jewelry designed and hand crafted by Rachel Hughes. Her jewelry is primarily composed of precious/semi-precious metals & gemstones and also incorporates brass, copper, Swarovski crystal and glass. She strives to create quality jewelry that is both classic and contemporary; that you will wear time and time again.
